THE HOMECOMING PLOT SUMMARY:
This is the pilot episode of the TV show, THE WALTONS, adapted for the stage. (The family name in this stage production is Spencer instead of Walton.)
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.

2015 C.A.T.S. Community Theatre Productions:

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s
OKLAHOMA!
Music by RICHARD RODGERS
Book & Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
Based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs
Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

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

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.

PROFESSIONAL SHOW SCHEDULE:

LEO DAYS: An Elvis Tribute
Saturday, September 19, 2015 @ 8:00 p.m.
Sponsored by First Citizens Bank
Leo became an avid fan of Elvis at the age of three. He grew up listening to Elvis and watching his movies. Leo has been dissecting Elvis' every move and studying every kind of concert footage he can. 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.
