"There is no feeling in the world like presenting our show to an audience that has no idea who we are and having the show close with a standing ovation."
The Shelby County Arts Council welcomes accomplished Blues singer B.J. Reed to the performing arts venue. Reed is an award winning singer whose work with the Alabama Blues Project for the past several years has inspired many young, aspiring singers. As a child she sang songs of her favorite artists to entertain her siblings, today she continues to entertain crowds at regional festivals and clubs. Using her background in classic soul and gospel she will take the stage performing the songs of Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington that not only made these women musical icons but also influenced her own work.
South City Theatre (SCT) will stage a reading of some of Judith Viorst’s funny, touching and true poems on Aug. 23 at SCAC. Featuring SCT Artistic Director Sue Ellen Gerrells and President Dianne Daniels, “Welcome to Mitford”s Salena Whalen-Stalker, and Columbiana’s first lady of theatre, Bonnie Atchison, the evening promises to delight with wickedly humorous and insightful reflections on our family relationships. Viorst, known for her children’s books like “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” also sparkles in her series of decade books on adult relationships that take us from our 30s through our 80s along the journey of marriage, children, divorce, remarriage and all the stops in between. Join us for an evening of witty reflections on the institution we call marriage. You will probably recognize yourself while you laugh!
