 Dear (Contact First Name),

We are so excited about our 2011-2012 Season which is just around the corner!
Saddle up and mosey along with us to the Wild West; foxtrot into romance and the jazzy music of the Roaring 20’s; ride shotgun down the open highway til you get to that midlife crisis fork in the road; continue winding into the north Georgia mountains and come face to face with outrageous comedy; and finish your crazy trip with a high velocity drop into a burnin’ ring of fire!  Sound like a fun adventure?  We think so.
Buckle up and hang on …
Call us today to reserve your tickets to see an extraordinary patchwork of comedy and music that will take you on a wild romp and adventure!  Subscribers get the best value and receive perks throughout the year!
Season packages available starting at $115 (or $90 for students and seniors).

The Season:
Diamond Studs <!– –>
Harrison Long in “Diamond Studs”

Sept. 1-18

Panhandle Slim and the Oklahoma Kid
by Jeff Daniels
Return to the days-gone-by of the American Wild West in this fresh new comedy by film and Broadway star Jeff Daniels.  Thrown together by unfortunate circumstances, an ornery vagrant outlaw and a singing cowboy argue the virtues of mayhem, music, true love, and the meaning of life as they try to live by the cowboy code.  This prairie showdown features original songs, as well as scoundrels, six-guns and a horse named Buttermilk. 
Nov. 3-20  
Norman and Sheila in Boys Next Door <!– –>
Luis Hernandez & Cara Mantella in “The Boys Next Door”

Glimpses of the Moon

Book and Lyrics by Tajlei Levis, Music by John Mercurio
This sparkling romantic music and dance extravaganza follows the jazzy whirl of New York high society in the “Roaring 20’s.”    Based on Edith Wharton’s 1922 novel, this delightful romp asks the age-old question: marry for love .. or for the love of money?  This exciting musical will send you clamoring for your nearest ballroom dancing class!  
Jan. 5-22
Becky’s New Car
by Steven Dietz 
Margo in Lying in State <!– –>
Kathleen Wattis in “Lying in State”
“When a woman says she needs new shoes, what she really want is a new job.  When she says she needs a new house, she wants a new husband.  And when she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.”   You’re invited to ride shot-gun with Becky Foster as she faces her own fork in the road on a wickedly funny, inventive and touching ride through the perils of middle age.
Feb. 23-Mar. 11
The Foreigner
by Larry Shue
This may be one of the funniest American plays ever written as it uses every device in the comedy storehouse to make you laugh yourself silly!  Charlie’s shyness renders him helpless in conversation – so when a friend covers for him by telling the other guests in a rural Georgia mountain lodge that he is an exotic foreigner and speaks no English, Charlie ends up hearing more – MUCH more – than he should!
Buddy Holly at Surf <!– –>
Dolph Amick, Rob Lawhon & Ricardo Aponte in “Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story”

April 12-29

Ring of Fire – The Johnny Cash Musical Show
