STAR Performances Announced by Arts Centre
     It would be rather tedious to explain exactly what is meant by the Superintendent Theatre Arts Resource (STAR) Program, but it is very easy to describe the result -- excellent performances of plays!!  The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts of Coweta County will be presenting two STAR shows in July -- one at the Arts Centre itself and the other at Dunaway Gardens. 
     Dunaway Gardens is one of the jewels of the Coweta arts scene -- the result of a vision imagined many years ago by Hetty Jane Dunaway and restored several years ago by Jennifer Rae Bigham. These beautiful gardens are located several miles north of Newnan after after a nice drive through the country on Roscoe Road.  It would be a good idea to arrive early to allow some time to walk around and enjoy the sights before the show.  The STAR show at Dunaway Gardens will be presented in its outdoor amphitheatre.  (In case of inclement weather, the performance will be moved to the Arts Centre.)   The show is Thornton Wilder's famous play Our Town.  Performances will be at 7 PM each evening on July 11, 12, & 13.  Information on Dunaway Gardens is available from its President Jennifer Rae Bigham at 678-423-4050 or by email at or by visiting its website  . 
     The show at the Arts Centre will be Music by Stephen Sondheim based on the book by James Lapine Into The Woods.  Performances will be at 7 PM on the evenings of July 19, 20, & 21  plus a matinee on the following day July 22 at 2:30 PM. It would be a good idea to attive plenty early in order to have the time to enjoy the beauty of the magnificent hallways of the Arts Centre and to look at the paintings which will be displayed there belonging to the Second Annual Juried Exhibit of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association. The Arts Centre is located at 1523 Lower Fayetteville Road several miles east of Newnan.  Information on the Arts Centre is available on its website  or by telephone at 770-254-2787. 
     Tickets for these performances are available at the Centre or at Morgans Jewelers in the Ashley Shopping Center or at Scott's Book Store on the Courthouse Square in Dowtown Newnan.
