Welcome to September! Summer may be officially over in a few weeks, but don't fret - there are a TON of fantastic events coming up! Fall is my favorite season of the year so I am particularly psyched for the all the exciting changes to come - school days, cooler weather, the colors of autumn, football, approaching holidays, and festivals and outdoor music!

The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Park Housewife
Wednesday, September 22, 2010, 8 – 9pm
Broach Theatre, 520 S Elm Street, Greensboro, NC 27406
“A feat of breathtaking audacity.“ – Critics Choice, Los Angeles Times
Willi is the trailer trash housewife of the title, not necessarily of her own volition. Her abusive husband won’t let her get a job, one of her children is dead, and the other is verboten by her husband because he’s gay. Her best and only friend, a large black woman who lives next door, worries about her constantly, always concerned that Willi’s husband will end up killing her. A new woman comes to live in the trailer park and ends up having an affair with Willi’s husband. When she finds out, Willi decides to get a job at the local Wal-Mart (a first step on the way to liberating herself from him). Her husband will have none of it, and quoting the bible about how a wife is supposed to obey her husband, threatens all three women with a gun, and then beats Willi to within an inch of her life. She recovers enough to finally shoot him, releasing her from the torment that she’d been living in for years. A blues singer weaves songs into the action, commenting upon Willi’s predicament and urging her toward decisive action. Tonight’s performance is a preview. All tickets are $16 Reserved Seating. There will be a $1.50 Broach Handling Fee added to each ticket.

Cupid's Park Theatre, Korner's Folly, 413 South Main Street, Kernersville
The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil's Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands. A wild, free-form comedy with lots of audience participation and madcap fun.
Adults $19, Student/Senior (55+) $17
