During March, the classic production
of Our Town will be presented by the Last
Resort Players at the Florence Events Center.
In an exciting collaboration between the play’s
producers and the FEC galleries, the Gallery
Committee is announcing a “Call to Artists”
for a Rent-A-Rod show during the month of
March. The theme is “Life in Our Town.”
Entries can either follow the themes of the
play – everyday living, love and marriage, and
the reality of death, or can focus on our own
town of Florence. To rent-a-rod, an application
can be obtained on-line, www.eventcenter.
org. Click on the top header “Galleries.”
Applications can also be obtained at the FEC
Offi ce during normal business hours. The cost
to rent-a-rod is $20.00, and each rod can hold
up to three paintings. The glass case is also
available for up to three items per application
for $20.00.
The Pulitzer Prize winning play Our Town
is set in small town America 100 years ago. It is
a beautifully written work by Thornton Wilder
about appreciating the beauty of the simple
things and is heralded by some as the greatest
American play ever written.
Our Town will be presented on March 20
and 21 at 7 p.m., and on the 22 at 2 p.m. It
will be repeated on March 27 and 28 at 7 p.m.,
and on March 29 at 2 p.m. The three act play
has two intermissions, and the audiences will
be encouraged to visit Gallery One during the
intermissions to refl ect on the art work and its
relation to the play.

The Jazz Kings tribute to the Jazz Age in
2014 was a tremendous hit. It featured great
material from that hot, sassy and fascinating
period of American popular music, but, so
much had to be left out, Jesse and the band felt
they just had to do a follow-up performance.
That will happen in a special Saturday
matinee on February 7 at 1:30 p.m.
This year’s show gives a special nod to the
many fantastic female vocalists of the period,
