A Time to Perform in September 2017
By Kaye Osborn

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Hopefully our temperatures begin to cool, leaves change colors, and the Delta breeze swirls relaxingly. Many local theater groups are publicizing dates for Open Auditions. They are looking for fresh, new, undiscovered talent. High schools and colleges are making final decisions about their dramatic and musical shows that will be produced during the school year. There are many to attend including some junior high and elementary productions. If you have a show that you would like to be advertised here, let me know so that we can get the word out! Send your info to<>

Here is what is happening in our neck of the woods!

My husband and I go every year with two of our good friends. It is our annual picnic date to sit under the stars, sip wine and enjoy the music. You can find me dancing in the back. This year, the fireworks return!
