Thanks for the reminder, MommieWrites. Mr. Steel and I are going to do something this weekend - maybe see a play - but we're not sure yet. For instance, "All In The Timing" by David Ives is showing this weekend at Common Ground Theater (produced by Ghost & Spice). It's a fun collection of wacky short plays that has a lot of fun with language. I've performed in it twice & had great fun both times, but that was before I knew Mr. Steel so I think I may have to take him.
Ghost & Spice
But there's also "Sweeny Todd" at the Arts Center in Carrboro. And "Topdog/Underdog" or "Doubt, A Parable" at UNC. And "Europe Central" produced by Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern. And on and on and on ...
Independent Weekly
So many choices, so little time!

I am not sure if there are tickets still available, but the Johnston Community College in Smithfield is having a production of Seussical the Musical on Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are only $10. We'll be there!

An interesting side note to Monster Jam folks...GraveDigger is a NC truck! They live out in Nags Head (when not on the road!)

We are not really fans, but hubby told me that fact not long ago! I thought it was pretty neat!

Bring your ear-plugs! I never realized how loud those trucks were until I went to a tractor-pull. A 1500-hp engine at full tilt in a closed building
