Bernie King and the Guilty PleasuresBernie King and the Guilty Pleasures

March 10 – 7:30 p.m. ($15)
Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures return to the stage at the Marion Ross Performing Arts Center with their special brand of music that will get your toes tapping for sure! They might be tough to bracket, but they sure are easy to enjoy. A little bit blues, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock and a little bit kitchen sink, a style of music that some fans have come to call “blues-grass.” You’ll hear some great original songs inspired by the styles of Shane McGowan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and Bill Monroe. With a rough and tumble mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, washboard, snare drum and accordian, Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are exactly what the doctor ordered.

Driving Miss Daisy

March 15 & 16 – 7:30 p.m.; March 17 – 1 p.m.
($20 adults/$10 students)
Don’t miss this live touring production of a timeless masterpiece! Set in mid-century Atlanta, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. At first, Daisy is none to happy about being forced by her son, Boolie, to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deeply-rooted affection. This Pulitizer Prize-winning classic is a delicate depiction of simmering racial tensions, the inevitable passage of time, and the universal experience of aging. Playwright Alfred Uhry creates two outsiders who come to a mutual respect and a poignant devotion to each other. The Hollywood movie starring Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman and Dan Akroyd won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Makeup. This live performance features Mary Kay Fortier Spalding as Daisy, Eric Wood as Hoke and Dann Peterson as Boolie.

But the only thing on Ole’s mind these days is the Lodge’s ice fishing tournament, and how he and his neighbor, Sven, are going to win the “whole deal.” Will Lena get Ole to the altar to renew his vows?
