  • GPS Adventures

    January 18–May 4
    GPS technology has changed the way we live, placing modern navigation in the palms of our hands, and creating the innovative sport GEOCACHING. Geocaching is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasure. People from all over the globe hide caches (treasures) and post the locations of these caches on the internet. Anyone with a GPS receiver can enter latitude and longitude coordinates to hunt for caches. Caches can be anything from small trinkets to a larger location, such as Minotaur Mazes’ GPS Adventures!

  • Main Stage Public Theatre of Kentucky Presents: The Member of the Wedding

    April 25–May 11
    The Times wrote of this play: “Carson McCullers’ report of a harum-scarum adolescent girl in Georgia is wonderfully—almost painfully—perceptive; and her associated sketches of a Negro mammy and a busy little boy are masterly pieces of writing.” According to the Journal-American, “Something rare and special.” John Mason Brown wrote: “(This) study of the loneliness of an over imaginative young Georgian girl is no ordinary play. It is felt, observed and phrased with exceptional sensitivity. It deals with the torturing dreams, the hungry egotism, and the heartbreak of childhood in a manner as rare as it is welcome…plainly, it is the work of an artist.” Kentucky Main Stage presents “The Member of the Wedding” at the Phoenix Theatre running April 25-May 11. For ticket information and showtimes, please visit www.ptkbg.org or call (270) 781-6233.
