Things to do in Greenville, Kentucky

"On Golden Pond" presented by MCTI

The Palace Theatre - 119 North Main Street

Greenville, KY 42345

270-377-3115 Ext. 2

New Dates: January 29th and 30th and February 5th & 6th at 7:00 pm & January 31st and February 7th at 2:00 pm


MCTI is pleased to present "On Golden Pond." The show is being directed by Community Arts Coordinator and educator Melanie Smith. The cast includes: Mike Richardson as Norman Thayer Jr., Donna Richardson as Ethel Thayer, Tori Grace as Chelsea Thayer, Gus Lynch as Billy Ray, TJ Teague as Bill Ray and Andrew McGreggor as Charlie Martin. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults and can be purchased at the door.

This is the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for their forty-eighth year. He is a retired professor, nearing eighty, with heart palpitations and a failing memory--but still as tart-tongued, observant and eager for life as ever. Ethel, ten years younger, and the perfect foil for Norman, delights in all the small things that have enriched and continue to enrich their long life together. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiance, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the "grandchild" the elderly couple have longed for, and as Norman revels in taking his ward fishing and thrusting good books at him, he also learns some lessons about modern tennage awareness--and slang--in return. In the end, as the summer wanes, so does their brief idyll, and in the final, deeply moving moments of the play, Norman and Ethel are brought even closer together by the incidence of a mild heart attack. Time, they know, is now against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still waits.

"Smoke on the Mountain" by Variety! Music, Memories & More

Felix Martin Jr. Hall - 501 Robert Draper Way

Greenville, KY 42345

270-377-3115

http://felixmartinhall.org

Saturday, February 27th - 7:00 pm

"Smoke on the Mountain" tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina's Smoky Mountains in 1938. The show features two dozen rousing Bluegrass songs played and sung by the Sanders Family, a traveling group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus.

Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into "the modern world." Between songs, each family member "witnesses" -- telling a story about an imprtant event in their life. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes fo the congregation, who wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true and hilariously imperfect natures. By the evenings end, the Sanders Family have endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.

The Badgett Playhouse is home to the show "Variety! Music, Memories & More" which is a Branson-style musical revue that has run continuously at the theatre since 2005. Based in Grand Rivers, Kentucky, this company performs a wide variety of productions including "Smoke on the Mountain."

Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for children. They can be pruchased by calling 270-377-3115 or by CLICKING HERE!

In the Mood

Felix Martin Jr. Hall - 501 Robert Draper Way

Greenville, KY 42345

270-377-3115

http://felixmartinhall.org

Friday, April 15th - 7:00 pm

In the Mood celebrates America's Greatest Gneration through the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, the Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the 1940s. In the Mood takes a look at American Swing Era, the time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music. It recreates defining moments from the 1930s/1940s, from the happy-go-lucky era before WWII, to the start of the war when thousands of our youth were going abroad to defend our freedoms and longing for the end of the war when loved ones would be reunited. The famouse LIFE Magazine picture "The Kiss" by Alfred Eisenstaedt epitomized such a moment.

Creator and producer Bud Frrest is a Julliard trained pianist and conductor who served as accompanist for the official U.S. Air Force chorus "The Singing Sareants." He compiled the greatest music from the swing era into a revue about the big band era and the influence of this music before, during and after the WWII years. The music arrangements of thee American songs evoke powerful emotions even in the people who were born decades after WWII.

Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for children. They can be purchased by calling 270-377-3115 or by CLICKING HERE.
