  • “Gnomeo & Juliet” is not exactly Shakespeare. Let’s face it, it’s not even close. But it does have some cute moments.

    You know the story. Boy meets girl, they fall in love but their families hate each other. But this time the families are garden gnomes in competing gardens.

    Instead of sword fights there are lawnmower races, gnomes aren't killed but they are shattered and the friar from Shakespeare’s version has been replaced by a plastic pink flamingo named Featherstone.

  • Everyday sounds are musical components in the soundtrack of life as far as Vine Grove musician Jordan Myer Dale is concerned.

    “There’s no moment in life that’s dull,” Dale said.

    Dale finds beauty in off beats, chaos and city sounds.

    “That together is the symphony of our lives,” Dale said.

    At the beginning of 2010, Dale released his album “The Soundtrack,” which includes tracks crossing a wide variety of genres. Pop, experimental, rap and new age are some of the syles represented on the album.

  • Starting this weekend, The Hardin County Playhouse tackles a farce with “Leading Ladies” and for this production, there’s a new director at the helm.
