  • Allegro's 'Cinderella' on pointe at the PAC

    Allegro Dance Theatre presents the happily-ever-after ballet Cinderella for the 22nd year Sunday.

    The ballet has sustained its appeal, in part, because it is a classic fairy tale, director Carol Zagar said.

    Sergei Prokofiev’s music is another lasting feature. He was a genius, she said.

    “Every time you hear the music, you hear something different,” Zagar said.

  • HCP fundraiser strives to rid the world of boredom

    For one night only, Hardin County Playhouse presents an original production, “Telethon: The Drive to Cure World Boredom,” as its fall fundraiser.

    But it’s not your average telethon.

    To create a production with a talent-show base, playhouse director Bo Cecil came up with the idea of a telethon-centered show.

    He took it to the HCP board, which told him to run with it. Cecil pulled in Ron Blair to write the script, which wasn’t written until they picked what acts would be featured in the show.

  • Looking at things in unexpected ways

    A friend of mine forwarded to me an email with a list of paraprosdokians.

    I wasn’t familiar with the term, either. It kind of sounds like a debilitating disease.

    Typically, a paraprosdokian is a sentence or phrase in which the latter part is surprising in a way that makes the reader or listener rethink or reframe the earlier part. Apparently it is a term that hasn’t found its way into the dictionary but is said to have been coined possibly in the 19th century.

    The highly anticipated film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s book “Ender’s Game” presents a thought-provoking story.

    The veteran cast and young actors mesh together to present a bleak view on a possible futuristic war with aliens. The film illustrates a future in which the hope of the entire human race is that children become warriors in video game driven warfare.

  • Hank Williams show hits State Theater

    Jason Petty isn’t himself these days.

    And on Monday, those attending his show, “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes” at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown will appreciate that.

    Petty portrays Hank Williams in a show that spans the singer/songwriter’s career.

    “We try to show you why the man is so great and why he is so tragic at the same time,” Petty said.

    Along with four musicians, Petty performs at 7 p.m. in a two-hour show.

  • Here's your chance to be a part of Middle Earth

    Calling all hobbits. The Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School is auditioning all kinds of Middle Earth folk for a spring pro-am production of “The Hobbit.”

    Dwarfs, elves, wizards and humans, among other creatures also are needed.
