by Elaine J. Watkins
Bring the whole family for this heart-warming joint production by Academy of the Performing Arts and Macon Little Kids Theatre.
This up-dated version is based on the classic story of “The Little Drummer Boy”
It is final dress rehearsal for the community pageant production of “The Little Drummer Boy”. A group of young actors led by an over-nervous, first-time director is plodding on with trying to get their show ready for performance. Every step of the rehearsal is side-tracked by all sorts of problems not the least of which is a stage hand who would rather be off practicing his rock-n-roll drum set. Reminding us that everyone has something unique, that every individual has gifts to offer, Little Drummer Boy will set your heart in a holiday mood. 4 performances, Friday, December 14th at 7:30, Saturday, December 15th at 2:30 and 7:30 and Sunday, December 16th at 2:30 p.m. All seats general admission $10 adults, $5 children up through age 17. Tickets will be sold during the performances of “Miracle on 34th Street” on November 30 through December 9, and will be available at the door of each performance of “Little Drummer Boy”.
As you enjoy the holiday season and spend time with family and friends, don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a fun filled evening of music and magic.

December 2 and December 3 at 7:30 PM
Annie Nations, an indomitable Appalachian widow of 79, lives on her mountain farm with the acerbic ghost of her husband Hector. Her tranquility is threatened by a brash real estate developer who wants to turn her land into a vacation resort and by concern over her son Dillard, a country singer who has come home with two stranded children because his wife has run away. Annie’s battle to decide her future takes her through some funny, touching and magical flashbacks to her life with Hector. Played on Broadway by Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, this couple offers a staunchly affirmative tribute to country folk.
