Check out the Center Series [UPDATED]

Published 9:25am Thursday, February 16, 2012 Updated 11:26am Thursday, February 16, 2012

If you haven’t already heard, we have announced our brand new subscription series for 2012-13 called the “Center Series: Escape Without Leaving.”

Series tickets are now on sale and they are going fast. We already have 100 seats sold.

It’s going to be a great season and we are thrilled that so many of you seem to be excited about it as well.

Stop by the Box Office soon to pick out your reserved seats.

Meanwhile, rehearsals are underway for our annual Spring fundraising show, Razzle Dazzle Revue. With a cast of over 60 local people and the theme “Let’s All Go To The Movies,” we’re sure it’s going to be another fun-filled show.

It takes a lot of hard work behind the scenes to pull off a production like this, and we are grateful to have so many talented and generous people who volunteer their time to help A Center for the Arts and entertain the community. Tickets are on sale for the three shows — March 23 and 24 at 7:30 p.m. and March 25 at 2 p.m.

Also, A Center for the Arts has gone digital. We are no longer mailing out our newsletters.

The good news is they are now available for everyone on our website and also via email, if you sign up for our mailing list.

If you do not use a computer, or don’t have internet access, we can print out a black and white hard copy for you. We just posted the latest version of our newsletter on our new and improved website.

If you haven’t gone to our site in a while, I highly encourage you to check out all the changes. We are hoping that it’s much more user-friendly and eye-catching.

If you’re looking for something to do this Friday night, please consider heading down to the theater for a one-time screening of the documentary film, “ Somthing Ventured,” at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are just $6 for adults and $3 for students at the door.

This is an informative and educational film about the original venture capitalists that created such companies as Intel, Apple, and more.

There is going to be a panel discussion featuring local entrepreneurs after the film as well.

There is never a lack of things to do here in Fergus Falls. I can write a whole column on just what’s happening at A Center for the Arts alone — not to mention M State, the local schools, the Kaddatz, the Otter Tail County Historical Society, the public library, etc.

Speaking of the public library, Fergus Falls Reads is in full-gear as well this month. So, what page are you?

There are book discussions, a panel discussion, and a film all scheduled around Mark Twain’s book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I encourage you to check out one of these events, most of which are free and open to the public.

Other events coming up that I’m really excited about include the Mu Daiko performance at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23. This is Mu Daiko’s 15th Anniversary Concert Tour and they have many special guests performing with them.

Mu Daiko will be doing Japanese taiko drumming, a visually stunning, high-energy, mesmerizing show that you don’t want to miss. We hope to see you at the theater sometime soon.

Kristin Fondriest is the administrative/productions assistant at A Center for the Arts in downtown Fergus Falls.
