    - There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has brought audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page for over twenty years. As a storyteller, comedian, author, troubadour, folksinger, and songwriter, White is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” “No artist on the coffeehouse circuit today is better than Don White at combining the heartfelt aesthetics of the singer-songwriter with side-splitting laughs. He mines the same regions for his jokes as he does for his serious songs: his streetwise, sometimes warring, sometimes loving family in Lynn.” – The Boston Globe

    - Dates and Times Vary. See Website. Camelot is a musical by Alan Jay Lerner (book and lyrics) and Frederick Loewe (music). It is based on the King Arthur legend as adapted from the T. H. White novel The Once and Future King. The story of the marriage of England's King Arthur to Guinevere is played out amid the pageantry of Camelot. The plot of illegitimate Mordred to gain the throne and Guinevere's growing attachment to Sir Lancelot, whom she at first abhors, threaten to topple Arthur and destroy his round table of knights who would use their might for right. This musical includes favorites such as “The Lusty Month of May”, “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “How to Handle a Woman” and many more!

  • - This dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels, and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan’s resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

  • - Matt Barr is a local Kingsport artist and photographer. His photography show, currently displayed in City Hall, is called Lethal Garden. His photography exhibit will run through October 12. All of his work is available for purchase.

    “Lethal Garden is a series that I began in 2015 to visually explore some of Mother Nature's most notorious lethal plants. Many of them grow all around us. In our backyards and gardens, on our playgrounds and farms. Most of them are aesthetically pleasing and are prized by landscapers for their extraordinary visual appeal. Oddly, others are grown for consumption as food or medicine. A small minority of them (some of the more sinister varieties), have historically been used in homicides, suicides, and executions…I have tremendous amount of fascination, curiosity, and respect for these plants. Working with them is a delicate dance with mortality which makes the process of taking these pictures all the more profound.” –Matt Barr

    - “Shades of Mark Twain with a touch of Stephen King, as if Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer had found themselves lost in a sinister fairground full of supernatural characters.”

    The #1 longest running American Musical in Broadway History.

    Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
    Music by John Kander; Lyrics by Fred Ebb
    Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
    Script adaptation by David Thompson

    This musical will razzle-dazzle you like no other. It’s the roaring twenties, and Roxie Hart is a small-time chorus dancer who will kill for fame. And after doing just that, she lands behind bars alongside vaudeville star Velma Kelly, who, with the help of hotshot lawyer Billy Flynn, has spun her crime into a media frenzy. When Flynn takes Roxie’s case, he makes her the latest tabloid sensation, setting the stage for singing, dancing cat-fights between the all-too-willing rivals, and featuring one of the greatest Kander and Ebb scores ever.
