river house capoteDirected by William Voiers, this is a dramatization of Truman Capote’s classic autobiographical sketch of his young life in rural Alabama during the Great Depression.  Deserted by his parents at an early age, Mr. Capote’s richest childhood memories were of his elderly cousin, Miss Sook, and their yuletide tradition of baking fruit cakes.  While Miss Sook was largely ignored by the adult members of the family, Capote relied on her love, friendship, and naïve wisdom during his formative years.  The lessons of her simple elegance had a major influence on his writings.

Robin Voiers is a highly acclaimed regional actress.  In addition to modeling, television commercials and choreography, she has starred with numerous theatre groups in the southeast.  She is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Florida State University with degrees in English Literature and Dance.  She danced with the 13th American Dance Festival at Connecticut College and performed professionally in New York City and Washington, D. C., before teaching dance at the Universities of Georgia and Maryland.  She has also taught English, Drama, Humanities, Art Literature and French; and has received several poetry awards for her own work.

The bar at River House opens at 3:00 PM and the performance begins at 4:00 PM.  Please call 336-982-2109 for reservations and information about the four-course chef’s choice menu to follow the play.

It’s been four years since “Waiting for the Light to Change,” but Atlanta singer-songwriter Ben Wakeman is back with a new album to celebrate.

On “I’m Just the Same as I Was,” his music still displays a sprightly mix of sweetness, smarts and irresistible melodic hooks, but this one feels sturdier.

It could have something to do with the drums and production work of Kevin Leahy and the assistance of some stellar musicians, but Wakeman deserves most of the credit. It’s a more mature work from an artist who just keeps growing, and those four years were time well spent.

As Wakeman puts it in the liner notes, this isn’t just a chronicle of the good times and the bad times. “It’s taken me a long time to pay attention to the stretches in between,” he writes. That’s where most of life happens, and where most of Wakeman’s tuneful observations reside.
