Singer Songwriter - In the Round

Ticket on Sale Now!

The Sunrise Theater is proud to present:

Singer-Songwriters in the Round


Four microphones, four guitars, four storytellers, one stage.

Becca Rae returns to the Sunrise, with three fresh new voices, for the second installment of this intimate, all-original showcase. Presented in Nashville’s famous “in-the-round” style, these local singer-songwriters will take turns playing one song at a time, explaining the meaning behind the melodies and the emotions that were carefully crafted into passionate lyrics. This show offers a rare glimpse into the minds of professional songwriters, drawing the audience into that place and time each song was born.

Featured artists will be Becca Rae, Ethan Hanson, Autumn Nicholas, and Jeremy Thorne. Each of these emerging young talents has paid their dues in the smoke-filled bars and thankless gigs attended by passive audiences. They have played for tips, taken countless cover song requests, and competed with the football game on TV for the audience’s attention. This show is a chance for these artists to truly shine, with nothing to distract from the magic happening right on the Sunrise Theater’s historic stage.

Becca Rae is a mainstream country music artist, best known for her powerhouse vocals and emotionally charged lyrics. Ethan Hanson, a native of Fayetteville, is an accomplished acoustic rock and blues guitarist, with a soulful voice and reggae-infused pop sound. Autumn Nicholas is a popular local performer, whose smooth silky sound continues to captivate and delight audiences. Jeremy Thorne, a relative newcomer to the singer-songwriter community, hails from Carthage, NC, and brings his outlaw-based country-rock style to the Sunrise for the first time.

There will be a 15-minute intermission between sets, when the audience will have a chance to meet the artists, purchase signed CD’s, and pose for selfies!

The show will be held on Saturday, April 8 at 7:30pm. Tickets for the show are $14 and can be purchased online at or by calling the theater office at 910-692-3611. Tickets can also be purchased in person during movie time at the concessions or in the theater office at 244 NW Broad St. Southern Pines.
