James Best, better known as Rosco P. Coltrane from TV’s The Dukes of Hazzard will bring his one-man, multi-media show to the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County on March 22 at 7 p.m. in the Wood Auditorium.

This state of the art, live multi-media presentation features digitally projected video that take audiences on a magical "you-are-there" rollercoaster ride through the sometimes glamorous, sometimes insane, always funny world of Hollywood. Tickets to the performance are $25.

Fans of classic TV may also remember Best from his many appearances on The Twilight Zone, Flipper, Combat, I Spy, Bonanza and Gunsmoke, to name a few. Best has spent more than 60 years on the big screen, co-starring with Hollywood icons like James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Newman, Gene Autry, Jerry Lewis, James Coburn, Steve McQueen, Lee Marvin and Burt Reynolds. He has worked with legendary directors such as Sam Fuller, Arthur Penn, Raoul Walsh, Budd Boetticher and Edward Dmytryk.

Highlights of the show include his classic imitation of his dear friend and co-star James Stewart, the Andy Griffith show stories, a recitation of his heartfelt Civil War poem "The Wall" and a show-stopping tribute to the Dukes of Hazzard, Rosco and Boss Hogg.

In the course of this 90-minute journey behind the curtains, soundstages and back lots of the studios and stars, Best relates uproarious tales about his long-running career as an actor, writer and director.
