'Brer Rabbit & Friends' returns to Center for Puppetry Arts

ATLANTA -- This April, Center for Puppetry Arts brings back the beloved, fun-filled trickster tales of Brer Rabbit & Friends.

Audiences will be enthralled by these hilarious tales of a cunning rabbit, his infamous friends and their amusing attempts to stay out of a briar patch of trouble. Spencer G. Stephens makes his directorial debut and brings a fresh, modern perspective to this Center classic that runs from April 11 – May 26.

The fun begins as Brer Bear, Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit, Sister Mud Turtle and Sister Bird gather to sing an early morning ditty, but soon find themselves in a battle for bragging rights. Featuring live music with a range of Southern African-American styles, this sprightly competition of the ego invites audiences to see who is the swiftest, the strongest and the smartest of this gang of friends.

Oakland's Boys of Summer Baseball Tour

Oakland's Boys of Summer Baseball Tour

 

Imagine looking west beyond the main gates of Oakland.  Look carefully and you will see a lush patch of green grass complete with a baseball diamond.  Beyond the playing field is a city devastated and still emotionally smoldering from Sherman's fires. Red flags hang from the doors of homes housing people with smallpox.  It is May 12, 1866 and the city desperately needs something to celebrate.  On that day the Gate City Nine and the Atlanta Baseball Club took the field to play the first baseball game in Atlanta.  Join us for a tour that recaptures the spirit of the day and examines the lives of a number of players taking part in that historic game. Dates– Saturday 3/30 at 3:00 p.m., Sunday: 3/31 at 3:00 p.m., Thursday 7/4 at 10:30 a.m., Friday 7/5 at 10:30 a.m., Saturday 7/6 at 10:30 a.m., Friday 8/30 at 10:30 a.m., Saturday 8/31 at 10:30 a.m., Sunday 9/1 at 10:30 a.m.
