UWG Theatre Company presents 'Godspell'

 

 

 

To kick off the 2017-2018 school year, the University of West Georgia’s Theatre Company will present Godspell Sept. 27-Oct. 1. A classic, family musical, Godspell was written by John-Michael Tebelak and Stephen Schwartz and was produced on Broadway in 1971.

The musical creatively showcases Biblical parables and the teachings of Jesus with music from all genres that will make you want to get out of your seat and rock out with the cast.

It expresses the upbeat message of Jesus’ teachings of love, faith and tolerance through classic songs such as “Day by Day,” “Learn Your Lessons Well” and “Light of the World.” The musical also explores the path of Judas’ inner struggle of whether or not to betray Jesus.

Six ways to bring warmth into your home this fall

(StatePoint) With the shorter days and cooler nights of fall can come the urge to hibernate. But first prepare yourself and your home for the season with these cozy and warm accents that will make time spent indoors cozier.

1. Incorporate Metallic Décor. While you’re breaking out the pumpkins, cornstalks and cornucopias, take a different approach this season and incorporate copper or brass accents. These metallic items will elevate décor, and the orange and yellow tones will complement the changing leaves outside. Try picking out a unique candelabra or vase or small decorative pieces to style the room.

John Michael Montgomery to headline 'Black Tie & Boots'

The West Georgia Technical College Foundation has announced that John Michael Montgomery will headline its 16th anniversary Black Tie & Boots concert at the WGTC Murphy Campus in Waco on Satuday, July 29.

Montgomery joins the long and star-studded list of country music performers who have graced the Murphy Campus stage, including Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Wynonna & the Big Noise and last year’s performer Kellie Pickler.

Singer of popular love songs like “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That,” Montgomery was born in Danville, Ky., to parents who imparted a lifelong love of music.

“Where most people have chairs and sofas in their living rooms, we had amplifiers and drum kits,” Montgomery said. “The family band played on weekends throughout the area, and my brother Eddie and I eagerly soaked up everything about it.”
