Oklahoma! the Musical
Date(s): Jul 04, 2014 - Jul 06, 2014
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  Students $10, Adults $15

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today.  Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story.  Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road.

Travis Tritt in Concert
Date(s): Jul 26, 2014
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

The highly abbreviated Tritt timeline has the young Georgian incorporating lifelong influences in Southern Rock, blues and gospel into his country during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros.  His 1990 debut "Country Club" and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the genre's early '90s boom.  At the same time, his conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness set him apart.  The next eight albums and scores of hit singles led him to amass more than 25 million in career album sales, two Grammys, three CMA Awards and a devoted fan base.
