OKLAHOMA!
October 3, 9, & 10 @ 8:00 p.m. - October 4 & 11 @ 2:30 p.m.

Sponsored by CCB - Citizens Community Bank and Boyd Honda of South Hill. 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.

THE HOMECOMING
December 5, 11, & 12 @ 8:00 p.m. - December 6 at 7:00 p.m. - December 13 @ 2:30 p.m.

The time is the Great Depression and the large Spencer family, living at the foot of a Virginia mountain, is struggling hard just to survive. With his father having to take the only available job a long way from home, Clay-Boy is stuck with unusual responsibility for his brothers and sisters. Just reaching manhood, Clay-Boy has a secret yearning that's quite extraordinary for the practical, earth-bound community in which he lives. He wants to write! Such foolishness is utterly foreign to his hardworking father, who tells him to prepare to become a responsible man—to build a home and raise a family. Sponsored by The Town of South Hill and the South Hill Chamber of Commerce.

He has spent a lot of time perfecting Elvis' moves and the mannerisms which is very evident when watching one of Leo's shows. Along with singing Leo can also play the guitar and piano. Leo is one of the few Elvis Tribute Artists that can accurately perform all three eras of Elvis. Whether it is the raw Elvis of the 50's, the 60's leather Elvis, or the polished Vegas Elvis.
