The Wizard of Oz

By L. Frank Baum       Adapted by Frank Gabrielson

Score by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg

Main Stage      September 3-6, 10-13, 2015

This stage version of the screen classic uses the most recognizable music of the movie’s score, including Over the Rainbow, If I Only Had a Brain, and Ding Dong, The Witch is Dead. L. Frank Baum’s classic tale is a family favorite. One day a twister hits young Dorothy’s farm and carries her away over the rainbow to another world where she and her dog, Toto, meet the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion, and travel to the Wonderful Land of Oz to meet the Wizard who can help them all get what they wish for most.


By Ira Levin

Black Box        October 1-4, 8-11, 2015

One of the greatest popular successes of recent Broadway history offers a skillful blending of gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter. A thriller-writer whose recent works have been flops is prepared to go to any lengths to improve his fortunes. Twists, turns and sudden shocks hold audiences spellbound until the very last moment.



By Steven Deitz

Main Stage      October 22-25, 29-November 1, 2015

I want your fear. For your fear, like a current, rushes through your body. Your fear makes your heart pound, it renders your veins rich and full. Your fear hemorrhages deliciously within you.” This adaptation restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker’s classic novel to the stage. Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, who try to piece together the clues of his appearance in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate.

All In The Timing

By David Ives

Black Box        November 12-15, 19-22, 2015

 This critically acclaimed, award-winning collection of one-act comedies combines wit, intellect, satire and just plain fun. “Like sketches for some hilarious, celestially conceived revue,” David Ives explores the humorous side of everything from romantic relationships to the meaning of life.

The Island of N.I.T.W.I.T.S. Toys –

A Christmas Miracle, Indeed

Main Stage      December 3 through 6, 2015

Christmas comes but once a year, but luckily, our hearty band of N.I.T.W.I.T.S. stays all year round!  This Christmas, our N.I.T.W.I.T.S. improv group will be throwing a very Merry Christmas party and everyone is invited! Four nights of long form improv, all based around the holiday season.  No tradition is sacred and everything is up for grabs with this group! Jingle your bells for a laugh-filled Christmas show!



A Christmas Carol

Music, book, and lyrics by Dale Lyles

Main Stage      December 10-13, 17-20, 2015

The classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his conversion from grumpy, hateful miser to a renewed and hopeful man has been a Christmas classic since Dickens first put words to paper. Newnan’s own Dale Lyles wrote the script and music for a local version that was a favorite of Newnan Theatre Company audiences for years. Lyles has now rewritten both script and musical score to bring a newer and better production to a new generation of NTC audiences!


Picasso at the Lapin Agile

By Steve Martin

Black Box        February 4-7, 11-14, 2016

This absurdist comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian cafe in 1904, just before the renowned scientist transformed physics with his theory of relativity and the celebrated painter set the art world afire with cubism. In his first comedy for the stage, the popular actor and screenwriter plays fast and loose with fact, fame and fortune and has the two geniuses muse on the century’s achievements and prospects as well as other fanciful topics with infectious dizziness. Picasso’ agent, the bartender and his mistress, Picasso’s date, an elderly philosopher, Charles Dabernow Schmendimen, and an idiot inventor introduce additional flourishes of humor. Then a surprise patron – a charismatic dark-haired singer time warped in from a later era – joins the merriment at the Lapin Agile.

Cat On a Hot Tin Roof

By Tennessee Williams

Main Stage      March 10-13, 17-20, 2016

In a plantation house, a family celebrates the sixty-fifth birthday of “Big Daddy,” but the mood is somber because a number of evils poison the celebration. Greed, sins of the past, and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds. His daughter-in-law Maggie wants to tell him she’s finally pregnant, her husband Brick prefers to stay in a mild alcoholic haze, and the other conniving relatives are all eager to see Maggie put in her place and Brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son.


By A.R. Gurney

Black Box        April 14-17, 21-24, 2016

A modern romantic comedy about a man, a woman… and a dog. Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after years od child-raising. One day, Greg brings home a dog that ‘found him’  in the park. The dog’s collar has a tag on it that says “Sylvia.” Quickly, Sylvia becomes a ‘bone’ of contention between husband and wife, but after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Music and Lyrics by William Finn       Book by Rachel Sheinkin

Conceived by Rebecca Feldman         Additional Material by Jay Reiss

Main Stage      May 12-15, 19-22, 2016

This TONY-award winning play has charmed audiences across the country. An eclectic group of six almost-teens vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the youth spell their way through a series of what sound like made-up words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Curt DiCamillo will look at English royal weddings during the last two centuries and will explore the history of some of the most famous royal residences in the world, including Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as the stories of Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. He will illustrate how these iconic places are part of the fabric of centuries of royal tradition and pageantry and how they continue to influence us in the 21st century.

Do you own a special quilt that tells a family or community story? A quilt that uses an unusual pattern or motif? Or even just a quilt that has been passed down through the generations of your family?

If so, the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society is interested in talking to you!

“We are currently looking for more quilts to be shared for a fall exhibit at the re-opened Male Academy Museum,” said Jeff Bishop, NCHS executive director. “If you have a quilt you would be willing to loan to us or donate, please contact us at 770-251-0207, or email our staff at jessie@newnancowetahistoricalsociety.com.”

The Male Academy will re-open on Labor Day Weekend, beginning Saturday, Sept. 5.

NCHS is also looking for folk art from the early days of the Powers Crossroads country fair and art festival for a special Labor Day Weekend display.

“We have three paintings by Tom Powers, and some other items we are going to display especially for the Male Academy re-opening,” said Bishop. “But we’re on the lookout for more.”

NCHS is actively seeking loans of art from the festival’s early days to include as part of the event. Pottery, metal craft, sculpture, painting, fabric craft, glass, woodwork, etching, and other crafts bought or produced at the Powers Crossroads festival, especially items from the festival’s early days, are sought.
As part of the quilt exhibit, the city of Newnan’s “Sesquicentennial Quilt” will be displayed for the first time in years. Other quilts will also be on display, including a quilt made by Coral Moses Hand, whose father founded the Male Academy school for boys in the 1800s.

“We found an oral history she did from the 1970s that really shines a light on her life and work,” said Bishop.

New exhibit panels are being developed for the new exhibit, and the museum has been repaired and re-worked.

“If you come to the Male Academy you’ll see things that haven’t been displayed for a couple of years now, and some that haven’t been displayed in quite some time, if ever,” Bishop said.

The NCHS is also prepping its first ever Quilt Expo this October. Applications should be sent by Sept. 1 with photos and descriptions of the quilts. Quilts must be received by Oct. 1 for the event, slated for Oct. 8-10. NCHS is seeking volunteers to help put up and take down the expo and to be “white gloved attendants.” Anyone interested in lecturing, demonstrating, or holding a class should also contact NCHS.

“We might be able to turn this into an annual fall event,” said Bishop.

10 x 10 and 10 x 20 booths will be available at the Historic Train Depot. Deposits of $50 are required to reserve the space.

The McRitchie-Hollis Museum, located at 74 Jackson St., is also open, showing the new “Golden Era of Hollywood” exhibit, featuring hand-painted movie posters from the Loew’s Grand theater in Atlanta from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Both the McRitchie-Hollis Museum and the Male Academy Museum will be open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10-12 and from 1-3. Admission is $5 / $2.

September is Blue Morpho Butterfly Month at Callaway Gardens’ Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center.  Typically there are more than 1,000 tropical butterflies of various kinds flying freely throughout the conservatory; however, this month it will be filled exclusively with spectacular Blue Morpho butterflies.


“During September, visitors to the Day Butterfly Center will witness the largest display of Blue Morphos on the planet at that moment,” said Michael Buckman, manager of the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center. “This is our seventh year filling the Center with Blue Morphos.  I’ve been told by suppliers that we are receiving all that they have of these beautiful butterflies. When I heard that, I knew we were doing something very special.”


The Blue Morpho (Morpho peleides) is a spectacular iridescent blue butterfly native to the rainforests of South and Central America.  The undersides of the wings are brown with eyespots, but the contrasting upper sides could be considered the most brilliant, vivid blue that nature has to offer.  This iridescent color actually results from microscopic scales on the back of their wings reflecting light, giving the brilliant shimmering blue appearance.  As a Blue Morpho flies, its contrasting wing colors of brilliant blue and dull brown fool the eye and make the Morpho look as if it is appearing and disappearing.  The word ‘morpho’ actually means “to change or modify.”


This tropical butterfly is usually a forest dweller but will occasionally venture into sunny areas.  They are diurnal, or active during the day, and they spend much of their time in flight because they can be territorial.  When courting, they often fly in long chains of five or more making a spectacular sight.


As one of the largest butterflies, with a wingspan of five to eight inches, the Blue Morpho is a wonderful subject for photos and video.  They feed on the juices of rotting fruit making them easy to locate at the fruit feeders in the Day Butterfly Center.  Butterflies are most active between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  For best results taking photos, consider visiting when the butterflies are resting, before 10 a.m. or after 3 p.m.


General admission* to Callaway Gardens, home of the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, is $20 per adult (ages 13-64); $15 per senior (65+); $10 per child (ages 6-12); and free for children 5 and younger (admission prices include tax).  Annual Passholders, with their pass and valid ID can enter the Gardens with up to five guests in the same vehicle for free per day.  Military and their spouse receive free admission and half price admission for up to four guests in the same vehicle.  This price includes access to Callaway Gardens and its many attractions and activities.  The Day Butterfly Center is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Take a break and enjoy the Day Butterfly Center and the many other attractions of Callaway Gardens.  Ask for the special Blue Morpho Butterfly Overnight Package, available September 7-30, 2015, in the Mountain Creek Inn and includes lodging; breakfast buffet at The Plant Room Restaurant, a special gift from the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, use of the Mountain Creek Inn Fitness Center and admission to Callaway Gardens and its many attractions for each day of stay and day of departure.


For more information or to make a reservation, call 1.800.463.6990 or visit www.callawaygardens.com.
