The Brewton Council of the Arts is planning a busy season of shows ranging from stage shows to performances by musicians.
Among the performances scheduled by the BCA will be a presentation by The Alabama Symphony Orchestra. The performance has been set for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19. Bob Geresti, a piano soloist, will be performing on Jan. 23 beginning at 7 p.m.
Shows designed to entertain and enlighten children are also on tap for the season. The first performance geared toward children will be presented on Saturday, Feb. 17 with a production of “The Little Mermaid.” The curtain will rise at 7 p.m. The show will be presented by The Missoula Children's theater.
On March 5, a musical version of “Urban Cowboy” will be presented at 7 p.m. The show has been touted as a rousing, high-energy rodeo of a show that dances up a storm.
A special series of Arts for Youth has also been planned for school-age children beginning with “The Time Takers” on Thursday, Nov. 16.
The Birmingham Children's Theatre will once again take the stage with the presentation of “The Time Takers” for elementary school children. Students will identify with Teena's struggles to turn off and unplug her time takers and tune in to the real world. The production, created especially for BCT, is a brand new funky musical that is certain to have students, teachers and parents dancing in their seats.
A second presentation designed for preschool and kindergarten students will be presented by the BCT on Feb. 28. “Cinderella” will be presented with music, dance and comical puppets as it takes a new spin on a classic tale. Children will be involved in the show as they laugh and shout and offer to help to the prince in trying to find the right foot for the magic slipper.
If you are interested in attending any of the shows presented by the Brewton Council of the Arts, tickets may be purchased at the door for each event. Season tickets are also available by contacting any member of the BCA.
