November 29 - December 15 @ Great Plains Theatre
A new musical revue created by Randal K. West and Justin Hill celebrating 25 years as an Equity Theatre in Abilene, KS. Arranged mostly in medleys, a group of 6 performers delights with a sampler of the music from past GPT shows over the last 25 years as well as a peek into future seasons. Performers when not singing and dancing will join the on-stage band for an entertainment that has something for everyone.
December 7 - December 8
Homes that range from the relentlessly practical to the how-wealthy-am-I ornate are featured in the 2019 Homes for the Holidays tour, which will be from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8.
What unifies the homes is that they all illustrate ways homeowners find to live a modern life in houses built in a different era.
Refreshments this year will be served at First Christian Church, 612 N. Buckeye.
