This year marks the 10th annual 10-Minute Play Festival at Georgia Southern University. Started by students in 2006, the event has taken off and grown into a standard part of the spring performance series. Student playwrights submit scripts in December that are then sent out as blind copies to respondents (generally one faculty member not in theatre, one alumni, and one professional playwright). The top scripts are selected to be workshopped and then presented in a concert reading. This year's plays include two alumni who were invited to contribute: Brock Vickers and Dre Camacho. Other contributors include Jake Hunsbusher, Khadijah Carter and Sam Harvey. The performance will be on Friday, April 15, at 7:30 p.m. in Room 1002 of Sanford Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

homegrown produce at the Mainstreet Statesboro Farmers Market, experience an assortment of vendors selling tasty goods and homemade artistries, browse through the many vendors and exhibitor booths that will line East Main Street and participate in free games and activities for the whole family to enjoy. A key aspect to the success of this event is due to Georgia Southern University and the service learning work of School of Human Ecology students. Students enrolled in Recreation Program classes taught by Dr. Brent Wolfe and Dr. James Bigley have planned and created games and street vendor activities that have doubled the number available to the community in past festivals. “The Georgia Southern University Recreation Program is excited to partner with Downtown Statesboro Development Authority again to host another event for the city of Statesboro,” Dr. Brent Wolfe said. “This experience is always an amazing opportunity for our students, as they have the chance to put lessons learned in the classroom into action while serving our community. Our students are grateful for the support from many community sponsors. Without them, a festival of this scale would not be possible.” This year’s sponsors include Dr. Troy Lawhorn of Statesboro Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and Dr. Horace Deal of Statesboro Vision Source. Other community partners for this year include Chick-fil-A and D&R Intensive Car Care.w

The garden offers free admission and depends upon the plant sale proceeds to grow and promote its mission: to “promote knowledge and appreciation of the native plants and animals of the southeastern coastal plain, enhance the region’s quality of life by presenting classes, events, festivals, and other botanical and cultural opportunities that connect learners of all ages with plants and the rich natural history of the region, and inspire environmentally responsible behavior.” “There’s always something interesting happening at the garden, since it’s a living place,” said Altman. “Stop in regularly and discover something that will add beauty, peace and wonder to your day.” Upcoming projects include “a new series of gardens, a new entrance and parking arboretum, and a 'Grow Zone' where people will be able to learn how to grow just about anything,” she said.

New Psyonix release in 'Rocket League' of its own Developed and published by Psyonix, Rocket League is a game of soccer — but with rocket-powered vehicles. yes, you read that correctly. The game supports single-player and multiplayer modes, both locally Tim and online. Unique to the game is cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and Microsoft Windows versions, and the potential for other networks in the future. Players control rocket-powered cars to knock a huge ball in the opponent's goal. Players can speed-

boost, jump, flip and even destroy other vehicles while they attempt to score the most points. Also, players are awarded points for certain in-game actions like scoring, assisting, saving and more. These points Webb are used to accessorize the player's vehicle and also for matchmaking with other players. The game shows off a brilliant design coupled by a fun concept. The visuals and audio go a long way in selling and helping the atmosphere of a true soccer match. Each field has been delicately designed with a sold-

Swing into spring with big-band pizzazz You're invited to POPs Concert in GSU Botanic Garden Itching for some live music, or an outdoor evening event to better enjoy this gorgeous spring weather? You can have the best of both worlds, as the Georgia Southern Department of Music and the Botanic Garden at Georgia Southern University present the annual POPs Concert, featuring the Georgia Southern Symphonic Wind Ensemble and the Georgia Southern Wind Symphony, on Sunday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. As opposed to the ensemble and Symphony’s regular concerts, which feature primarily classical music, the POPs concert “is geared toward music that will be familiar in some way to most of the audience,” said Dr. Robert Dunham, Associate Professor and Director of Bands at Georgia Southern University, such as “traditional marches by John Philip Sousa,” as well

as “a selection of movie themes and Broadway showtunes.” While the repertoire might vary significantly from the regular fare the groups play, the POPs concerts aren’t technically that “much different for the performers, other than they are played out of doors,” Dr. Dunham said. At the garden, the musicians, who are used to “having a room to give them feedback on how they sound,” must “adapt to the way the sound changes.” Most of the performers are students at Georgia Southern University and East Georgia State College, with a “very limited number of double-enrolled students from area high schools,” said Dunham. Between the ensemble and the symphony, each of which perform for half of the concert, listeners will experience the sounds of flutes, oboes, bassoons, clarinets, saxophones, French

In fact, “the only real difference between these groups and a symphony orchestra is that we have no string section,” Dunham clarified. The Georgia Southern Music Department has a long, ongoing relationship with the Botanic Garden. “I love music, and consider it a great part of my job to showcase the great musicians of our area, especially those from GSU!” said Carolyn Altman, Executive Director of the Botanic Garden at Georgia Southern. “GSU has many wonderful, free musical events, and it would be great if more people attended them.” Various ensembles from the Music Department play at the Garden’s functions throughout the year, from festivals to member events to wine tastings, but the annual POPs concert is the only regularly scheduled, recurring musical performance. Initially put on by the GSU Symphony Orchestra, Dr. Dunham and his wind players inherited the POPs series several years ago and “are very excited about continuing the concerts,” “We have very much enjoyed the enthusiasm of the audiences who come out for these performances,” Dunham said.

“The POPs concert is a favorite in Statesboro,” Altman affirmed. “It’s popular with a wide range of folks, from families to diehard classical music lovers. It’s music everyone enjoys, and it’s lovely to hear it while surrounded by a beautiful, blooming garden.” “Visitors are welcome to wander the entire garden,” Altman continued, but, admitting that “it’s a little tough to do that and enjoy the music,” she encourages visitors to “come back and explore” another time. Admission to the Botanic Garden is free. The POPs Concert is also free, and open to the public. The event is “totally family friendly,” said Dr. Dunham. “In fact, that is part of why we program music for this event the way that we do.” So, he encouraged, come early and “bring blankets, folding chairs and a picnic supper to enjoy.” “Music is way, way better live,” said Altman. “Especially classical music. It’s complicated and nuanced, and to really turn yourself over to it, you have to listen. You do that when you and the musicians are in the same place. It’s a great feeling, and what art is all about.” The 2016 POPs Concert will take place Sunday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. at the Botanic Garden, 1505 Bland Avenue, in Statesboro. At that time of day in the Garden, Altman said, “the light and breezes mix with the music to make it just perfect. It’s life at its best.”w

Emma Kelly is taking her stage again Averitt Center to celebrate singer's legacy with "What's Your Favorite Song?" behind the scenes,” said Kelly. “Mom was out six, seven nights a week with song and dance routines, and Dad kept everything going at home. His support was an essential ingredient to our success, and to mother’s.” George and Emma “could not micromanage” 10 kids, not having “the luxury of time,” said Kelly. Instead, they raised their children with Guiding Principles, a series of “You Wills”: “You Will go to church every Sunday; You Will work and earn your own money; You Will be a part of a music show; You Will learn tap dancing and ballet; You Will take care of your brothers and sisters,” among others. These principles were “part of the foundation that allowed [George and Emma] to manage their marriage, their respective careers, and 10 kids,” said Kelly. They were also integral to his and his siblings’ success: All 10 went on to earn college degrees and grew to be happy, healthy adults with their own families and varied skill sets. Kelly found it “extremely difficult” to whittle his book down to this show’s two 45-minute acts. “You know that Bob Seger lyric, ‘What to leave in, what to leave out’?” he asked. “The biggest challenge was condensing the story down to the stage appetite.” In order to fit everything in, Kelly chose to “fast-forward through the births of all 10 children, which spanned 22 years.” This meant hurtling through the Great Depression, World War II and more, as the Kelly family grows and thrives. Difficult though it might have been to condense Emma’s rich and busy lifetime, Ross Kelly was pleased by the ways in which the stage production enhanced his text. “We are able to put flesh into the story, which the book alone could not do,” he said. Kelly will act as emcee, “telling the story, which is accompanied by music,


Emma Kelly appears on the Averitt Center's program for the upcoming production, "What's Your Favorite Song?" An Evening with Emma Kelly, slides, videos and onstage performances, including original songs of my own, songs Mother played with the big bands and old standards.” The cast, featuring four main vocalists and three musicians — a pianist, a bassist, and a drummer — will perform Emma’s favorite music and “let her speak for herself ” through archival materials. The cover of “What’s Your Favorite Song?” features an old photograph of all 10 Kelly children in performance. “We all grew up doing songand-dance routines, kind of like the Von Trapp family of the South,” said Kelly, who attributes the closeness of his siblings, even as adults, to these childhood musical pursuits. “Those routines, those road trips, bound the 10 of us together. Regardless of differences in personality or style, the music was the binding element.” Ross is joined in the show by his

sister, Emaline, in a rendition of one of those old song and dance routines, and the program is peppered with the Kelly name, featuring multiple generations. Perhaps most powerful is the show’s closing number, performed by the fourth generation of Kellys, who are Ross Kelly’s and siblings’ grandchildren. “You can just see the spirit still alive, being perpetuated,” said Ross Kelly. “Beyond mother’s celebrity, the real takeaway of the story, their real legacy, is the fact that the Kelly family will welcome members 99 and 100 into the fold as of this year,” he said. “We are continuing the legacy and the spirit of who Mother and Dad were, in terms of family, faith and music.” Join the Kellys at the Averitt Center for the Arts in celebration of Statesboro’s beloved Emma Kelly, April 8–9 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee show on April 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, and $10 for youth.w

Living in Statesboro, you have likely heard of Emma Kelly. If you are curious to know more about the celebrated chanteuse, now is your chance: The Averitt Center for the Arts and Emma Said Productions have paired up to bring us "What’s Your Favorite Song?” An Evening with Emma Kelly, April 8–9 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee show on April 10 at 2 p.m. Emma Kelly’s musical talent was discovered when she was only 3, but she did not play professionally until World War II, when she performed at Fort Stewart, a training facility for GIs. From there, her performance career skyrocketed, and she was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. If you have read or seen the movie version of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, you have been introduced to her as the Lady of 6,000 Songs. In fact, the show’s title, “What’s Your Favorite Song?” was Emma’s tagline. When someone sat beside her on the piano bench, “that was the first thing she would ask,” said Ross Kelly, the fifth child and first boy in the family, who wrote and directed “What’s Your Favorite Song?” as well as a book by the same title in 2015. “Whatever it was, she would play their song for them. It was her signature.” In addition to being a renowned performer, Emma was also wife to George Kelly, a local sign maker, and mother to their 10 children, who were born in near-perfect two-year increments. “Every one of us spent part of our infancy in a bassinet on top of a piano,” said Kelly. Ross Kelly aims to show us more of Emma Kelly than we know from her celebrity. The book and play portray “the juggling act that transpired while Mom developed her musical career, Dad ran his business, and they raised us together,” he said. George was always “the anchor

Averitt Center rolling out two new annual events On the evening of Saturday, April 16, at the Averitt Center's Whitaker Black Box Theater, two new Statesboro traditions will be introduced. The first, “Down Home in the Boro,” is a performance and a fundraising event, and will also unveil the second tradition: Summer Stock. “Summer Stock 2016 will kick off at the beginning of June and wrap up in the first week of August,” said Alan Waters, facility attendant at the Averitt Center and founder of Statesboro’s Summer Stock. The program will add four new theatrical performances to the Averitt Center’s summer season: two shows at the Whitaker Black Box and two shows at the Emma Kelly Theater. Waters and company are waiting to announce the show titles until April 16’s “Down Home in the Boro” unveiling event. To help bring the new shows to life, the Averitt Center is adding a staff

of interns. Waters has big plans for the intern crew, who will be responsible for putting on a show of their own — “acting, building, performing, everything” — and will assist with the three other shows over the summer. In addition to these duties, interns will be teaching a special children’s camp one week and will help out with the Averitt Center’s other summer camp options, including the Jungle Book, To Broadway and Beyond, and Honk! Musical Theater and Performance camps. After completing an internship at a Summer Stock program himself, Waters returned to Statesboro inspired and ready to set to work. As an intern, “you learn so much and you get a really great opportunity to understand what’s going on in the professional theater world,” said Waters. But Summer Stock participants learn more than just industry secrets through their participation in the program.

“In this career field, you might be somewhere for three or four months before moving on,” he explained, during which time “you grow to understand yourself, and your friendships.” Of the program’s future, Waters said, “I’m hoping that it goes over well so that we can bring it back each summer. I’d like to build something that is going to benefit both us and Georgia Southern students who are wanting to break out into the professional world.” Summer Stock internships are open to “anyone interested in having a career and education in theater,” said Waters. While applications came in from high school seniors and college students all over Georgia (as well as a few from Florida), this year’s four finalists, who will be announced the same night as the Summer Stock show titles, all happen to be upperclassmen at Georgia Southern University. As such, Waters said the Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance program had a hand in planning “Down Home in the Boro,” a night that ushers in Statesboro’s newest theatrical tradition. The evening will unveil and feature snippets of the four plays that comprise Summer Stock, as well as a performance by members of Georgia Southern University’s Southern Improv, who are donating their time. “Down Home in the Boro” is a “night to eat, drink and be merry,”

"Harmony," by local artist Nia Rementales, draws inspiration from delicate coral structures and is just one of the many creations on display in the Averitt Center's ceramics exhibition.

Latest exhibit explores the craft of clay In the world of Art, the media of "craft" are those most associated with utilitarian things. Glass, fibers, wood and, of course, clay touch our hands and bodies every day. But there’s a difference between something massproduced and something unique, made with care by an artisan. This undefinable quality is on display this month at the Averitt Center in the work of six ceramics artists, who approach the clay subject from a variety of perspectives, crafting vessels, bowls and sculptures. Retired Georgia Southern University faculty Jane Pleak offers an overview of her works, from subtle jade-green vessels expressing delicate proportions

Jason and Erin Hall of Alberta Pottery layer crunchy, organic glazes over altered, wheel-thrown forms, suggesting that their objects are at once modern and archeological. Some of their works may appear damaged, but never fear: They actually draw on Japanese ideas of wabi-­sabi, which is an aesthetic that respects the imperfect. Local artist Nia Rementales ventures further into the organic, exploiting clay's versatility to seem both hard and delicate simultaneously, crafting bowls that could be at home on a coral reef.

tea party set, Lisa Bradley and Amy Roberson embrace the utilitarian in brightly hued porcelain and stoneware. The favored clay for such ware, porcelain is pure white and can be thin while being strong, and conforms to hand- and wheel-building equally as well. Bradley lays a stunning table, at home in Alice's Wonderland, full of color and polka dots, needing only a dozen or so cupcakes to complete the effect. Playful, but meticulous in

craft, Bradley's forms are familiar while maintaining modern proportions. Roberson, a graduate of our own GSU ceramics department, presents a smart set of elegant tumblers, lidded vessels and mugs, in her own signature glazes.

This ain't our first No "yee haws" necessary to enjoy Statesboro Kiwanis' sixth annual rodeo and off with Hedrick Rodeo Company. The four-foot tall corpulent clown has been in Statesboro for past rodeos and has new acts this year, Hedrick said. The International Professional Rodeo Association-sanctioned rodeo draws contestants from all over the world, including many champions, but local riders are encouraged to enter as well. They are invited to compete in barrel racing, steer wrestling, bull riding, team roping and more. There are fun events too — a steer-dressing contest, children’s calf scramble and gold rush. There will be a bungee jump ride, pony rides, Party Harbor inflatables and possibly a mechanical bull, Anderson said. There will also be food vendors, including the Back Porch Grill, offering anything from burgers to boiled peanuts, and other vendors such as Sadie’s Hats, with western attire, accessories and more fun things for sale, he said. Both Hedrick Rodeo Company and the Statesboro Kiwanis Club pride themselves in providing quality family entertainment where “you don’t have to worry about what kids see and hear,” Hedrick said. “I don’t care what age you are, you’re going to find something you enjoy.” Hedrick also takes pride in the cattle and bucking horses he raises. Many people watching the rodeo don’t know that bucking horses are bred to buck and enjoy their jobs, he said. He plans to bring cattle and horses that have won many awards points in rodeos all over the country. Contestants who wish to enter the rodeo may call Hedrick on “call in” day, April 6 to enter; his number is (865) 556-9154. Any local horseback rider who feels so inclined is invited to join in the fun with the opening parade around the arena each night, he said. This is a “come-as-you-are” event, which means you can wear whatever as long as it’s decent — and no, you are not obliged to go out and buy a pair of cowboy boots

It’s time to get your “yee haw” on as the Sixth Annual Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo, April 15–16, brings broncs and bulls to the Boro — as well as some pretty good-looking cowboys and cowgirls. This is a real rodeo, not just a flyby-night show. The Kiwanis Rodeo, provided by Hedrick Rodeo Company out of Tennessee, is a professional competition drawing champions from around the world as well as locally, with some of the best awardwinning stock and one of the funniest little clowns around: Pork Chop the Clown, who will be back in town, said company owner Danny Hedrick. There is something for everyone, whether it be food, horses or the thrill of watching bullriding and barrel racing. Since the club started hosting the rodeo, the two-day event keeps the stands packed each night, said rodeo chairman Bill Anderson. Tickets are less expensive if purchased in advance at Anderson's General Store on Northside Drive East: $12 for adults and $7 for children 6 and older. Children younger than 6 are admitted free. At the gate, tickets will be $16 for adults and $11 for children 6 and older. As in the past, Hedrick promised to bring new stock, including awardwinning bulls and the horse known as 105 Willie, voted Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year, and Bucking Horse of the Year, Curious George. The Southeastern Professional Rodeo Association named Hedrick Rodeo Company the 2015 Stock Contractor of the Year, he said. His wife Jessica has a new team of trick-riding horses: a black and white American Paint Horse named Dippity and a sorrel and white American Paint Horse named Duh Huh. She will perform the popular Roman riding again this year, taking both horses over flaming jumps as well as performing other daredevil tricks, he said. Pork Chop has brought belly laughs from the crowds on many occasions over the past eight years, working on

As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to say “yee haw.” Hedrick recalled a radio station interviewer who once demanded he utter the stereotypical phrase on the air. “We (real cowboys) don’t say that,” he said.

Boropalooza 2016 Latest incarnation of Statesboro music festival is warm-up act for SweetWater 420 Boropalooza is back, and event coordinator William Bridwell guarantees that this year's incarnation will be the "best version of Boropalooza yet." The third annual music festival looks to light up the night with a four-band lineup on Saturday, April 16. Music will begin at 7 p.m. as local performers Half-Seas Over take the outdoor stage until 8 p.m., when Charleston-based trio The Steppin Stones step up to the mic. They will be followed by homegrown favorites The Orange Constant, who made their move to the Athens music scene earlier this year. Rounding out the night will be Funk You, coming all the way from Augusta to end the evening with a two-hour set starting at 11 p.m. This year, Boropalooza is part of the Road to SweetWater 420 concert series, which Bridwell put together for the Atlanta-based spring music festival. Boropalooza will be one of the last of the eight or nine concerts leading up to the three-day bash in

Funk you

Atlanta, April 22–24. At Boropalooza, as with the other Road to SweetWater 420 concerts, there will be a chance to win two weekend passes to the festival. For Statesboro music fans, this is a particularly significant opportunity, as it will give them the chance to see The Orange Constant — along with fellow Boropalooza headliner Funk You — perform on the big Atlanta stage, at the Lyrics and Laughter stage on Saturday, April 23. This is Bridwell's second time helping to coordinate Boropalooza, and he said local sponsor The Forum has been a big help in bringing the community together for the music night. He incorporated the SweetWater 420 angle to help give Boropalooza a fresh new feel, and to diversify the night's lineup for a good mix of genre and overall vibe. Boropalooza is not an all-ages show: Attendees must be at least 18 to get through the door and 21 to drink. For ticket information, check out Airbound Entertainment's Boropalooza event page on Facebook.w

We'll let Boropalooza's crowning act speak for themselves: "Hailing from the east side GA town of Augusta, FUNK YOU is an outgoing burst of energy that is continually climbing their way to the top of the music scene. This "funk" oriented outfit projects multiple musical styles focusing mainly on dance driven grooves with powerful clean vocals. Incorporating intriguing musical composition, tasteful lyrics, and crowd captivating live performances, FUNK YOU is surely to make an imprint on your musical taste. ... By colliding funk, jam, rock, fusion, and prog into one uniform sound, these guys will keep your jaw dropped and your feet moving without stopping. Their songs combine lush ambiance, catchy vocals, and intense shredding simultaneously into a unique well defined sound." They'll also be heading to SweetWater 420, so Boropalooza will be a great opportunity to catch them before they break onto the Atlanta music scene.

Half-Seas Over Local band Half-Seas Over is fairly new to the music scene, having begun in 2015, but they are quickly making a name for themselves as one of Statesboro's more fun cover bands. Bridwell discovered them while they were opening at a show in Athens and quickly snatched them up for the Boro's annual music fest. Classifying themselves as country and classic rock artists, the three gentlement of Half-Seas

Over — GSU students Tanner Fussell, Trey Stadler and Tyler Tam — perform classic tunes to get the audience singing along. They'll be a great warm-up act for the night of nonstop music that is Boropalooza. On their Facebook page, HalfSeas Over tout themselves as "one of the most talked-about groups in the GSU community." If that isn't true now, it very well might after their Boropalooza debut.

The steppin stones This Charleston-based trio has been playing together since 2006, but they get a little bigger every year. Calling them "wunderkind" musicians is no stretch of the imagination: Their lyrics and instrumentation convey a skill that belies their tender years. With two albums under their belt, The Steppin Stones have been popular faces at Dingus Magee's and look to expand their Statesboro fan base through Boropalooza.

The Orange Constant Statesboro's favorite homegrown jam band left town for bigger and better things in Athens' music scene, but they still manage to make it home every few weeks for local shows. Part of the Homegrown Music Network, The Orange Constant has been featured in Relix Magazine and has played alongside bands including Atlas Road Crew and Perpetual Groove. After Boropalooza, they'll be making their way to Atlanta for the SweetWater 420 music festival, where they will be playing the

Lyrics and Laughter stage. Check out their Soundcloud page for a taste of their Boropalooza set.

CAT closes season with 'Game of Love & Chance' After a fall lineup weighted by the dark Pillowman and thematic Mystery Cycles: The Creation, the Theater and Performance students at the Georgia Southern University Center for Art and Theater are closing their mainstage season with considerably lighter comedy: Pierre Marivaux’s folly-filled French farce, A Game of Love and Chance. In the show, a young woman set up for an arranged marriage takes her situation by the horns and switches places with her maid in order to observe and size up her fiancé. However, the groom-to-be has done the same thing with his valet, and the swapped identities trigger more than one delightfully confused romances. Set in the 1730s but recast in the Baroque period for the CAT players’ performance, Game was pitched by costume designer Dr. Sarah McCarroll, who specializes in clothing of this period. In addition to being a fun and lighthearted way to celebrate springtime, the show offers an oppor-

tunity to show off the costuming department’s skills. The dresses are elaborate, luxurious and huge — including some skirts with a nearly five-foot radius. The dress worn by the maid, Lisette, has more than $500 of fabric in its making. “It’s actually hugely about the costumes,” said director Lisa Abbott. The script pokes enormous fun at the ridiculous fashion, but that isn’t the only source of the comedy. Don’t let the “period piece” label frighten you away: The script the CAT players are using is very accessible, with no antiquated language or obscure references to weigh down the audience’s enjoyment. “The jokes are pure sex,” Abbott said. “It’s a sex comedy, it’s double and triple entendres.” To heighten the humor, Abbott and cast have incorporated plenty of physical comedy. In this show, Freudian implications abound, and a fan is never just a fan. “It’s a good modern adaptation,” Abbott said. “It’s about being in love with the person you think is the wrong

“Overwhelm him, then, set him on fire, take him by storm — in a word, marry him.” person, so it’s universal in that way.” Tackling the laughter-laden script is a young cast, with only two juniors and no seniors in the six-actor ensemble. The lead roles are carried by Sam Wise, who last portrayed Abel in The Mystery Cycles, and Kelsey Poole, who held multiple roles in last spring’s Metamorphoses. Their servants are played by Will Cox, who has flexed his comedic muscles in recent shows, and Devyn Crawley, who is making a shift from her more dramatic roles in

Metamorphoses and the summer’s Catholic Girl Gun Club. A Game of Love and Chance opens on April 6 and runs through Wednesday, April 13. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. except for the Sunday matinee, which will open at 2 p.m. There will be no show Monday, April 11. Tickets to the show are $6 for students and youth and $12 for members of the community. For tickets and reservations, inquire at the Center for Art and Theater box office.w Cover art contributed by Georgia Southern University

And, on Lane Road, a woman told deputies another woman she knows knocked on her door, handed her a container that appeared to have cake inside, and asked her to hold out her hands. When she did, the offender placed weeds in her hand and slapped her in the face before leaving, uttering threats.
