    Barter Theatre presents: A Facility for Living
    Friday, March 2, 2018
    Show details

    Locality:
    Alleghany County
    510 Main Street
    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    Barter Theatre makes its first appearance on our renovated stage, bringing this twisted comedy that takes a serious subject and gives it a hilarious biting edge. Set in the not-so-distant future, nursing home residents are housed in a government-run, repurposed penitentiary (because the prisons have been outsourced to China, naturally!) and the Head Nurse is being a real pill. Suffice it to say that resident morale is a little down. All is doom and gloom until Joe Taylor a new resident and former actor arrives. Fresh new life is about to be breathed into Nursing Home #273 whether Nurse Claudia and her orderlies approve or not! With each repressive rule and outrageous cost saving measure imposed by Nurse Claudia, and with Joe's help, these feisty boomers plot a coup d'état to show everyone that they aren't ready to give up on life just yet! "A Facility for Living" pulls out all the stops when it comes to addressing all the vices, follies, abuses and shortcomings of the "system"-in this case government's response to the issue of aging in America. Sometimes it's funny because it's just so wrong," says Richard Rose, Barter Theatre’s Artistic Director.  Because of the language and content, viewer discretion is advised.  Tickets: Main Orch: $25; Rear Orch/Front Balc: $20; Rear Balc: $15; Boxes: $35

    Alleghany County
    510 Main Street
    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Alleghany Highlands Community services will introduce the film in recognition of National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. March has been recognized as National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month since 1987. Then-President Ronald Reagan at that time called for the American people to build understanding and encouragement, and to provide new opportunities for people who have developmental difficulties and disabilities.

    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    Get your St. Patty’s Day groove on with us! Love Canon doesn't cover the music of the '80s as much as kidnap it and take it on a bluegrass-tinged joyride. It's a general rule of American culture that it takes 20-40 years for a decade to shed its stale stench and get its groove back. There's no shortage of clever musical re-enactors giving the first generation of MTV an ironic makeover: a fool's errand, given that the music already was soaked in postmodern irony. By contrast, Love Canon refreshes and extends the originals with affectionate humor and effortless virtuosity. The players -- including Old School Freight Train's Jesse Harper and Darrell Muller, Virginia Commonwealth University guitar and banjo master Adam Larrabee, Mandolin Virtuoso Andy Thacker, and dobro Jedi Jay Starling — add layers of depth to the still-appealing pop hooks.

    QUEBE SISTERS
    Thursday, April 26, 2018
    Show details

    Alleghany County
    510 Main Street
    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    When the Quebe Sisters from Texas take a stage, and the triple-threat fiddle champions start playing and singing in multi-part close harmony, audiences are usually transfixed, then blown away! It's partly because the trio's vocal and instrumental performances are authentic all-Americana, all the time, respectful of the artists that inspired them the most. And whether the Quebes (rhymes with "maybe") are decked out in denims and boots or fashionably dressed to the nines in makeup, skirts and heels, the fresh-faced, clean-cut sisters, all in their 20s, look as good as they sound. Not surprisingly, the Quebe Sisters win standing ovations at just about every show. It's been that way since 2000, when they started fiddling together as pre-teens. The sisters' past is as colorful and eventful as their future is bright. Growing up in Burleson, TX, a southern suburb of Fort Worth, Hulda, Sophia and Grace were 7, 10 and 12 in 1998 when they attended their first local fiddle competition in nearby Denton, and decided fiddling was what they wanted to do. The girls earned solo and group accolades early on, winning state and national championships in their respective age groups in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002.

    The Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon is held on one of the most scenic trails in the country.  The Jackson River Scenic Trail follows its namesake river, winding its way between Intervale, just north of Covington, to Smith Bridge Trail Head following an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (Hot Springs Branch) and passes through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland along the way. It's common to see wildlife from the trail (birds, turtles, raccoons, rabbits, ground hogs, and deer).  Our course is on the smooth crushed gravel surface of The Jackson River Scenic Trail. The trail is mostly flat with some light hills. All finishers will receive a medal.  Strollers will be allowed in the 5k event and will start in the back of the group at the start line.  The course is certified by USATF as a Boston Marathon qualifying marathon race. Coinciding with the fifth annual Covington Cork and Pork Festival BBQ in Covington, VA everyone is encouraged to stay following the race and visit this Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event.  While the barbeque will stand front and center as the centerpiece of this festival, there will be entertainment, a wine tasting event, and children activities.
