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!

2014-2015 Season Schedule
Feb. 20-22 & 27-28 Mar. 1st & Mar 6-8
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
Summer Theatre Academy will be returning to The
Columbian Theatre stage! This production is a town
favorite and always fills up fast. Summer Theatre Academy
gives an opportunity to kids in the local area to branch out
and find their love for the theatre arts. Come see how
far they have come for only rehearsing for a single month!
