The Centerstage North production continues Saturday with the opening night dinner show and another coffee benefit and dessert matinee on Sunday.
"The Battle of Shallowford" is billed as a "down-home" Southern comedy based in Shallowford, N.C. -- and not the East Cobb road close to The Art Place -- on the 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast about aliens invading the planet.
“Tickle their funny bones, warm their hearts, don’t insult their intelligence.... The Battle of Shallowford hits that magic trio.” Knoxville News Sentinel.
Tonight's event starts at 8 p.m. Tickets for that and Sunday's 2 p.m. coffee and dessert show cost $15. Some of the proceeds will benefit the MVAA and The Art Place.
Saturday's dinner show begins at 6:30 p.m. and the cost for appetizers, wine and dinner is $25.
The menu for Saturday fits the Southern theme of the show: North Carolina-style BBQ, macaroni and cheese, cole slaw, greens, bread and banana pudding.
Tickets are on sale at the Centerstage North or in person at The Art Place, 3330 Sandy Plains Road.
"The Battle of Shallowford" continues Oct. 17-20 and Oct. 24-26.
