One Fun-Filled Weekend!
The weekend of March 14-16 will be a busy one in McNairy County as Arts in McNairy stages two exciting events in a short three days. Never let it be said that you can't find something interesting to do in Southwest Tennessee!
The third show of the AiM theatre season, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, will open, Friday March 14 for three public performances at McNairy Central High School's Little Theatre. The play is being directed by AiM board member and Performing Arts Chair, Bryan Essary and boasts a cast of some 60 area children and adults. It is based on the beloved children's book of the same name from C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia series.
The curtain will open Friday (3/14) and Saturday (3/15) nights at 7:30 and Sunday (3/16) for one matinee performance at 2:00. The box office opens thirty minutes prior to show times and tickets are $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for students. All performances are expected to be sellouts so local educators have arranged for two exclusive daytime performances for McNairy County students on Friday and Monday. Consult each school for more details on how to attend.
The popular AiM Artisan Trail will be the same weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 15. The biannual tour focuses on McNairy County's rich cultural heritage and features a dozen stops spotlighting several of the areas best working folk artists and artisans. You will be able to visit with artists in their studios, see them at work and purchase many of their fine wares. Traditional broom making, weaving, woodturning, carving, quilting, and pottery will be just a few of the interesting skills on display. Several other interesting stops are also included on the trail. There is no admission charge for this event so, pick up your map at the Bethel Springs Community Center, see the artists and displays there and head out for a fascinating day in McNairy County Tennessee! Updated maps showing all the stops will also be available on this blog one week prior to the event and at all other stops on the trail. Take the virtual tour at http://www.artsinmcnairy.com/ to get a feel for the real trail.
We invite you to come for the trail and stay for the show! You will find it interesting, educational and downright fun! Come see why so many people love to "come home to McNairy County," cultural crossroads of southwest Tennessee!
