Opening act, 40 Watt Dreams, goes on at 7:30pm


Split Lip Rayfield will be on stage after opening act

Split Lip Rayfeild has carved out their own genre of music

with their unique sound and instrumentation. Often

described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent

of metal, no other band delivers the experience of the

homeade gas-tank bass played by Jeff Eaton, sets the

mandolin strings on fire like Wayne Gottstine,or makes the

banjo sing like Eric Mardis. Together, they burn up speakers

and stages alike providing an unforgettable expereince.

This is one trio not to miss!

Not all plans march to the beat of the drummer. This is true

for "Professor" Harold Hill, a quick-speaking transient

salesman who poses as a marching band outfitter and

instructor in the small town of River City, Iowa, in 1912.

The town, hesitant at first to accept the new-comer, falls

victim to the professor's schemes. The local librarian,

however, is not so easily swayed, doing some detective

work to expose the professor's fraud. She has a change

of heart after watching her brother blossom as a result

of this fictitious band.

Can love and a librarian change this con man's ways?


Apr. 24-26, May 1-3 & 8-10


Starting a new life is never easy, especially when moving

from the big-city life in Chicago to the small town of

Beaumont. Ren has a major culture shock when he finds

himself in disagreement with the ultra conservative,

spiritual town that has put a ban on dancing.

He makes quite the reputation for himself as a

"trouble-make"; he vows to break the dancing ban and to

reawaken the town. Ren faces road blocks along the way,

but eventually both he and Rev Moore let down their

guards and teach each other vital life lessons.

Do you dare to "cut footloose" with Ren and the rest of the
