TLP concert series – Farewell Angelina
May 21 – 7pm

Farewell Angelina is an all-female country quartet featuring four women who are each award-winning songwriters, dynamic singers and multi-instrumentalists. The Nashville-based group has sold out rooms across the Southeast and Midwest, and has opened shows for Loretta Lynn (and received standing ovations for those opening sets).  Their sound may remind you of the Dixie Chicks and Little Big Town, with a hefty dose of The Eagles’ vocal chemistry.

School of Rock the Musical – Youth Production
July 5,7,8,9 – 2pm

School of Rock
 is a brand new musical based on the film starring Jack Black. The TLP version will be performed by area middle & high school students and will feature all of the original songs from the movie plus 14 new songs created for the Broadway production by Andrew Lloyd Webber.   The musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. Completely disinterested in academic work, Dewey decides to create his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. SCHOOL OF ROCK, with its sensational live kids’ rock band, is a loving testimony to the transforming power of music.

TLP presents Always…Patsy Cline
Sept 9-10-11 & Sept 16-17-18

Always…Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically in a plane crash in 1963.  The show is based on a true story about Cline’s friendship with a lonely fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961, and continued a close personal correspondence with Cline until her death.  The musical play, complete with down home country humor and honest emotion, includes 27 of her beloved songs – including many of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight.  The show’s title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which she signed “Love ALWAYS… Patsy Cline.”
Show times are Friday & Sat @ 7:30pm and Sat & Sun matinee @ 2pm

Native American Speaker at Savanna Museum and Cultural Center

Saturday, March 19th, 2016 2:00 PM

Kim McIver, Native American of the Ojibwa tribe will be a guest speaker at the Savanna Museum and Cultural Center, 406 Main Street, on Saturday, March 19th at 2:00pm.

Kim, is a talented speaker, performer, as well as publisher and self publisher of award winning books. She will bring to life, music and stories of her Indian Culture.

The Ojibwa (said to mean “Puckered Moccasin People”) have a number of spiritual beliefs passed down by oral traditions. These include a creation story and a recounting of the origins of ceremonies and rituals. Spiritual beliefs and rituals were very important to the Ojibwa because spirits guided them through life.

The Ojibwa crafted the dreamcatcher. They believe that if one is hung above the head of a sleeper, it will catch and trap bad dreams, preventing them from reaching the dreamer. Traditional Ojibwa use dreamcatchers only for children, as they believe that adults should be able to interpret their dreams, good or bad, and use them in their lives.

United States, they have the fourth-largest population among Native American tribes,
