The superintendent of schools in Beaufort, SC, 1960's, is desperate for anyone to teach school on Yamacraw Island. The school there has been totally neglected by the school system-no books, no blackboard, no attention being paid to the students. In fact, one has to take a boat from the mainland to even reach the island.
Into this hornets' nest walks Pat Conroy, almost thirty, idealistic the way only a 60's hippie could be, and recently fired from his twentieth job in five years. He is only too happy to answer the ad for a teacher, especially since Dr. Piedmont informs him that "no experience is exactly what I'm lookin' for."
When Conroy meets the children-Cindy Lou, Mary, Prophet, Anna, Top Cat, and Richard-he discovers that they can scarcely read or write, they know little math, and they are wildly undisciplined--but their anger barely conceals their desperate need for a teacher who will actually care. Conroy is determined to be that teacher for them.

Showcasing one of the greatest voices of our time, Linda Eder’s diverse repertoire spans Broadway, Standards, Pop, Country, and Jazz. When she performs “live” in concert, it is amazing to experience the ease with which she moves back and forth from one genre to another as if she were gifted with the vocal ability to perform each genre as well as all the others. The concert stage remains the mainstay of Eder’s career. She has performed for sold-out crowds in venues across the country and throughout Europe. She has performed at many prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, The Palace Theatre, Radio City Music Hall, Wolftrap, New York City’s Town Hall, Davies Hall, among many others. Always touring in great company, her collaborators have included the late Oscar-winning composer and pianist Marvin Hamlisch, Emmy and Grammy winner Michael Feinstein, and conductor of the Boston Pops Keith Lockhart. Eder is happiest on stage singing for her audiences and spreading the joy she exudes.

The Producers is a musical adapted by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan from Brooks' 1968 film of the same name, with lyrics written by Brooks and music composed by Brooks and arranged by Glen Kelly and Doug Besterman. As in the film, the story concerns two theatrical producers who scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a Broadway flop. Complications arise when the show unexpectedly turns out to be successful. The humor of the show draws on ridiculous accents, caricatures of homosexuals and Nazis, and many show business in-jokes.
