Macon Little Theatre presents
A Holiday Musical Celebrating Families
Book, Music and Lyrics by
Sylvia Haynie and Laura Voss
Produced by special arrangement with the writers and the Academy of the Performing Arts, Inc.
Traditions is a culmination of a career spent in music and theatre for composers/ playwrights Laura Voss and Sylvia Haynie. Commissioned as a work for the holidays, Voss and Haynie set about to create a show balancing the religious aspects of the season with the celebration of what it means to be a family. Spend your holidays with three generations of the Sullivan family as they gather to celebrate all the things that give families cause to be thankful. Weddings, births, adoptions and faith all figure into this story of people joined by the bond of love and, of course, their traditions. Funny, touching and realistic, this family could be your own. Macon Little Theatre is proud to bring back to the stage the performance of this original work by local artists Sylvia Haynie and Laura Voss. Join us for the birth of a new tradition for you, our family of holiday theatre-goers.

Macon Little Theatre in partnership with The Peach State Opera Company will present “A Day and Night at the Opera” on September 26, 2009. The program will consist of two operas in English, “La Serva Padrona” (The Maid Mistress) and “The Old Maid and the Thief”. Peach State Opera is a touring opera company which combines beautiful voices and excellent musicianship with “portable” staging for easy travel.
The concept of Peach State Opera began more than a year ago when Evelyn Hughes was retiring from a twenty-year career as head of the Voice and Opera Division at Georgia Perimeter College. She saw a need for young opera singers to be able to perform fully staged operas in professional settings. With the business acumen and singing background of Justin Carr, the idea began to develop. Also critical to the inception of the company were pianist Patrick Hutchison, with his many regional, national, and international credentials in music, theatre, and choreography, and Jeffrey David Gibb, an exciting young baritone with experience in opera, music theatre, and staging. The Board of Directors was assembled and the Peach State Opera was formed.
There will be two performances, one at 2:30 PM and the other at 7:30 PM. Tickets will be $15 for adults and $10 for students. There are no reserved seats and tickets may be purchased at the door. The performances are not part of the regular season and will not apply to season ticket holders. These performances will serve as a service to area opera fans and as a fund raiser for Macon Little Theatre.
