April 13th – 20th The Sandlot, David Sedaris, Rockabilly, and Agatha Christie

The Sandlot (1993)

This is a free screening as part of the Second Saturday Family Film series. Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and step-dad, and wants to learn to play baseball. The neighborhood baseball guru Rodriquez takes Smalls under his wing, and soon he’s part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, tree-house sleep-ins, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival ball team, and the travelling fair. Beyond the fence at the back of the sandlot menaces a legendary ball-eating dog called The Beast, and the kids inevitably must deal with him. Theatre N at Nemours, April 14th, 11 A.M.

 

David Sedaris

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition. The Grand, April 16th, 8 P.M.

 

Oh Boy! A Tribute to Rockabilly

Walt Hetfield, locally renowned Buddy Holly surrogate, has expanded beyond his alter-ego persona to bring audiences Oh Boy! A Tribute to Rockabilly. This rocking tribute concert revisits the genre of West Texas rockabilly along with the original style that came out of Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. The high-energy show includes the music of Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Ritchie Valens, the Big Bopper, Eddie Cochran, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Ricky Nelson and Link Wray. Not to be missed! Smyrna Opera House, April 14th, 7:30 P.M.
