Monday September 28 at 7:00 pm LAC hosts the Leeds Area Open Circle Poets meeting. From Joan Dawson: “Have you been outside to revel in the signs of the change of seasons, the change from flowers to seed dispersal, the visitations from bees, wasps, butterflies? Can you write a poem about the change of the seasons or about the changes in your garden or yard? Or about the signs of preparing for new life next year? Or about your own preparations?
Listen to your muse and just write. You choose the topic if the ones above don’t work for you. Please bring copies of your poems if you can.
In addition to reading our poems and enjoying refreshments, we’ll make plans to host the Birmingham Arts Journal meeting on October 29.. Please think of how you can help with refreshments.”
Leeds Arts Council presents Five Tellers Dancing In the Rain at the Leeds Theatre and Arts Center, October 16th through 18th and October 23rd through 25th.
Southern sass, tears and charm engage as five bank tellers speak their hearts and brew lots of coffee in this comedy by the author of Belles. Set in the break room of a small bank in Mississippi on six consecutive weekday mornings, this warm and gentle play eavesdrops on the conversations of women who have for too long defined themselves in terms of their relationships recently ended or in the process of falling apart with the men in their lives. It’s a play about broken arms and broken hearts and about finding strength and self respect through friendships with those who have been down that road before.
Mark Dunn’s Five Tellers Dancing In the Rain arranged by Samuel French, directed by Cliff Keen, Jr., will show on October 16th through the 18th and 23rd through 25th. Friday and Saturday tickets are $20; the show will be at 7 pm and will include hors d’oeuvres. Sunday tickets are $15; the show will be at 2 pm and will include dessert and coffee.
