O'Henry Birthday Celebration

September 11, 2014
A Gala Evening of Theater and Music with O'Henry
Greensboro Historical Museum

The Greensboro Branch of the English Speaking Union joined with the Greensboro Historical Museum to celebrate the 152nd birthday of wrinter and native son, William Sydney Porter (O'Henry) on September 11, 2014. A cocktail buffet in the Lobby Reception Gallery of the Museum was enjoyed by a capacity crowd. After dinner, guests assembled in the Mary Noris Preyer Hall to enjoy live performances of 5 of O'Henry's short stories. The delicious pre-performance buffet was a delightful prelude to the sold-out (SRO) production which kept us laughing and "glued to our seats" for the surprise endings. Guests also enjoyed vintage music by local performers during the evening.
