Winters presents ‘The Foreigner’

What happens when a painfully shy Englishman is mistaken for a “foreigner” in southern Georgia? The locals believe he doesn’t understand a word of English and manage to spill all their secrets in front of him. Audience members will find out if he can help save the rustic lodge and its colorful inhabitants in a Winters Theatre Company production of Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner” this spring at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave.

Tickets for the gala opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1, are $15. For all other performances — at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, April 2-9, and 2 p.m. Sundays, April 3 and 10 — are $10 general and $6 for seniors and students.

For more information or reservations, e-mail [email protected] or call (530) 795-4014.

Sign up now for summer theater camp

The Woodland Opera House is taking registration for its youth summer theater camp, Show Biz Kidz. It’s an annual program designed to be an introduction to theater performance for area youths age 8-18.

Students will spend four weeks studying musical theater technique, including, singing, dancing, voice projection, characterization, theater terminology, and theater etiquette and professionalism. Students will develop performance skills and will be given an equal opportunity to shine on stage. The camp will culminate with four performances of a Broadway-style musical revue, “School’s Out for Summer.”

The show will include popular songs about summertime fun, ranging from 1920s favorites like “In the Good Old Summertime” and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” to 1960s Beach Boys surf melodies, and from 1970s pop tunes like “Walkin’ On Sunshine” and “School’s Out for Summer” to Sheryl Crow’s summertime classic, “Soak Up the Sun.”

Classes for students ages 8 to 10 will run from 9 a.m. to noon Mondays through Fridays, July 5-22. Classes for students ages 11-18 will run from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the same dates.  The performances will be July 30 and 31 at the Woodland Opera House, Second and Main streets
