Springtime in LaGrange is blooming with fantastic activities! From supporting local artists and makers to a Blue Collar Comedy show, the last weekend in April is looking like one of the most exciting weekends of the year. Here’s a glimpse at some of the events happening in LaGrange the weekend of April 29th! We hope to see you around town, at Wild Leap, or Charlie Joseph’s.
Thursday, April 27 – Friday, April 28: Food for Thought
On April 27th and 28th The Young Singers of West Georgia present: Food for Thought, a fantastic night of entertainment with quality singing and choreography, live professional accompaniment, lighting, and more. Food for Thought features 85+ singers ages 8-18 who will put a creative spin on the subject of food.
One section, ‘Farm to Table’, incorporates clever and uplifting music from the garden, the beginning source of much of our food. The ‘Sweets’ section showcases upbeat and well-known Broadway tunes. The show takes a more serious tone in the ‘Food for Thought’ section where we approach subjects such as hunger and war along with other uplifting and moving pieces such as a Shakespeare text “If Music Be the Food of Love”.
Tickets can be purchased from the LSPA website and this performance is sure to leave patrons with a smile!
