January-March Culture Card Events

Center Stage Theatre - LCC

Book of Days
February 25-28, March 5-7; 12-14
2 pairs of Tickets available for each week

Lanford Wilson's Book of Days is an alternately comic, tragic, and poignant murder mystery that examines the fascinating characters that populate Dublin, Missouri, a small town in the Heartland dominated by a Cheese Plant, a fundamentalist church, and a Community Theater. This is the most recent play by the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, first written and produced by Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theatre Company of Michigan. Wilson constructs this town literally out of thin, theatrical air. The play itself is fascinating in its ability to make these people seem utterly real, by finding a balance between comic human observations and deep character drama. In the end, we see a town walking the thin line between example of American propriety and ticking time bomb, ready to explode.

Columbia Theatre - More pure fun. Plain and simple.

Jekyll and Hyde Musical
January 23, 2015

Glamorous, sexy and deliciously wicked, Jekyll & Hyde is the enthralling musical based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant but obsessive scientist whose alter ego wreaks havoc across Victorian London. An evocative tale of two men - one a doctor, passionate and romantic - the other, a terrifying madman; and two women - one, beautiful and trusting - the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret.

Collin Raye
February 7, 2015

Born Floyd Elliot Wray on August 22, 1960 in DeQueens, Arkansas, country artist Collin Raye was one of the true hit makers of the 1990's. Collin still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. Collin Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as "Love, Me," "In This Life," and "Not That Different."

The Lion in Winter
February 13 - March 1, 2015
2 pairs of Tickets available for each weekend

The Lion in Winter, by James Goldman, is a modern day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action - the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family who are locked in a free for all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Let out only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom, as well as King Henry's paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, "every family has its ups and downs," and this royal family is no exception.
