Legendary Ladies of Country: Heart Songs from the Heartland | Thursday, February 15
Join us on a joyous celebration of the power and resilience women discover as they travel down life’s highway of young love, marriage, heartbreak (and revenge!), and motherhood. As they come to the far end of that journey, they have an accumulated wellspring of wisdom to pass along to their daughters. Then the circle of life, family and love continues on.
The show pays tribute to many current and legendary country greats. Included in the show are songs from The Carter Family (June, Carlene and Mother Maybelle), Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Kitty Wells, Lynn Anderson, Reba McEntire, Bobbie Gentry, The Judds, Trisha Yearwood, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Tammy Wynette, Patty Loveless, Carrie Underwood, Loretta Lynn and the Dixie Chicks. Fiddle, guitar, banjo and bass accompany hit songs such as “Walkin’ After Midnight,” "Sweet Dreams,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “Harper Valley P.T.A.,” “Coat of Many Colors,” “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden,” “Could I Have This Dance” and more. If you like the life stories that country music tells, this show is ideal for you!

Guys & Dolls | Wednesday, May 23
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong. Cost is $77; includes transportation to the Old Log Theatre, lunch and show ticket.
