Angel’s Perch, Stocking Stuffers and ArtWalk Special at Charleston Ballet

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Art Walk Black Friday Sculptures photo-2Visit the Charleston Ballet our 100 Capitol Street Mezzanine studios for ArtWalk on November 29, 2013. The photography of Penny Johnson will feature many images of West Virginia. The West Virginia film ANGEL’S PERCH will be shown.

The Charleston Ballet will have great stocking stuffers and many unique, original gifts available to make your holiday shopping easy and your gifts memorable. Visit the Ballet on BLACK FRIDAY!

Angel’s Perch is the story of Jack, a successful architect living in Pittsburgh, who must make the trip to his tiny hometown when his grandmother Polly, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, is found wandering outside her house one morning.

But what was intended to be a two day, under the radar trip to town becomes more complicated when Jack is unable to move Polly into an assisted living facility. Torn between the career opportunity of a lifetime, caring for his last living relative and running from his own painful memories, Jack’s carefully constructed life begins to unravel.
As the town prepares to honor Polly’s life by crowning her “Queen of Cass” and the pressure to return to Pittsburgh mounts, Jack struggles to hide behind the walls he has built. And when he finally reveals his secret to an old childhood friend, he is forced to choose between standing still or facing the pain of his past, so that he can finally move forward.

Set almost entirely in the small, historic logging town of Cass, WV, Angel’s Perch examines the delicate relationship between past and present, memory and loss.
