CAC season tickets now on sale

Published 12:00 am Saturday, October 7, 2017

Season tickets  are now on sale for all performances of the 2018 Covington Arts Council season.

Tickets are available at Harold’s Furniture in Andalusia and at Young’s Florist in Opp, and are $55 each for adults, or $30 for students. Family packages, which include tickets for two adults and two students, are $125.

CAC Executive Director Paula Harr said the group will open its performance with Country Cool comedy this month.

Country Cool is a “straight-shootin’, no-holds-barred comedy show that laughs at what we’re all dealin’ with…the “this can’t really be happening” moments in life that make us feel like we’re losing our minds, one traffic jam at a time.”

Locals who enjoyed the humor of Leanne Morgan at this  year’s Little Black Dress event will enjoy hearing her stories as told Trish Suhr and Karen Mills.

They bill themselves as “country cool.”

“It’s not redneck; it’s not white trash – it’s country cool,” the promo says. “It’s comedy for the masses, because, let’s face it, everybody’s got a little country in ‘em.”

The show is set for 7 p.m. on Thurs., Oct. 26.

In March, there’ll be music on the agenda with Young Irelanders.

“They’re very much like the Celtic Women,” Harr said.

The show is set for 7 p.m. on Mon., March 12.

In April, laughs will return to the stage in a performance aimed to attract pet lovers, “Mutts Gone Nuts.”

The animal humor features well-loved and cared-for pooches. The CAC will accept contributions for the Andalusia Animal Shelter and the Andalusia Humane Society, and a portion of proceeds for photographs with the stars also will fund the two animal organizations.

The show is set for 7 p.m. on Thurs., April 5.

Last year, the CAC wowed locals with a Journey tribute band. This year, they’ll close out the season with Rumours, a Fleetwood Mac tribute band.

“They are really wonderful,” Harr said. “We have found that our audiences really enjoy tribute bands, so we included another one this year.”

The show is set for 7 p.m. on Fri., May 4.
