Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, both born to wealth and position, are childhood friends. LOVE LETTERS is comprised of their letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud it is eloquently clear how much they really meant, and gave to each other over the years. Starring Elliot Eisenberg and Rebekah Spence.

TICKET NOW ON SALE!

Join us on Saturday, April 17th at 3pm at The Cultural Arts Center’s Center Field as Brad Spivey performs country classics! This is a 60-minute socially distant outdoor, solo, acoustic concert. Many of you will recognize Brad Spivey as the front-man of The Honky Tonk Experience, our "Evening of Country" band for many years. This show will feature the same classic country style you've enjoyed in the past, but with a more intimate and personal vibe. Kind of like an old friend with his guitar singing your favorite songs by the campfire. Brad's solo shows are very popular, and you're sure to enjoy this one!
