Your Middle Georgia entertainment scene is working some serious overtime this Labor Day Weekend! There's so much to do! Here we go...
Jumping ahead to Monday, get ready for big fun at the Big House Museum! The Vineville Neighborhood Association hosts its very first Wine & Music Festival. The day's events take place in the beautiful backyard concert area at the Big House. On the line-up you've got Griffin-McClelland (acoustic pop/rock), Adam Hensley & the Round Table (jazz), Na Ceolith (traditional Irish), Stribling (rock) and Planet Retro (80's retro).
Bring your blankets and chairs, but remember - no coolers allowed! The gates open at 2:30 p.m. and the music kicks off at 3:00 p.m. Michaels on Mulberry will sell food and drinks. As a bonus, a tour of the museum is included in the price of festival admission.
We're bringing it back to Friday and to the revival of a beloved play in Warner Robins. After 10 years (the play first debuted in 2000) the Warner Robins Little Theatre brings the back-by-popular-demand production of Second Samuel to the stage.
Second Samuel is a quiet town in Southeast Georgia. But drama gets stirred up pretty quickly when one of the "ladies" in town passes away. This funny, quirky and moving story about life in a small southern town is a can't miss!
Opening night is this Friday at 8:00 p.m. The show runs through September 18th. Call (478) 929-4579 for tickets, visit the Warner Robins Little Theatre online for showtimes and get thee to Second Samuel!
Back in Macon, Honky Tonk Angels are belting out the ballads at Macon Little Theatre. When Angela, Darlene and Sue Ellen bump into each other on a Greyhound Bus bound for Nashville, they find they've all been stuck in the same bad country song. But their lives take a turn when they team up to sing their hearts out!
Honky Tonk Angels debuts Friday at 8:00 p.m. and runs through September 12th. Make reservations now at (478) 471-PLAY.
In the heart of Downtown Macon, Friday marks another First Friday! Visit NewTown Macon online for a list of all the exhibit openings, live music performances, and other fun events just waiting for you!
The Douglass Theatre is getting in on the First Friday action with a tribute to the man...Mister Otis Redding! Arthur "Bo" Ponder and the Old Soul Band plus the legendary Hamp Swain star in this evening of memorable music. Grab tickets at the door or by calling (478) 742-2000.
Wrapping up the weekend, a brand new exhibit opens at the Museum of Arts and Sciences. Macon Architecture: The Story of Structure is a fascinating look at architecture as an art form and a look at the beautiful specimens located right here in the heart of Georgia. Come find out what put the "arch-" in architecture beginning this Friday.
Check out the Museum online for more information.
