Sleep in Safety; The Death of Octavia Hatcher
Jenny Wiley Theatre Pikeville Mainstage, 218 2nd Street Pikeville, Ky 41501
Octavia Hatcher was laid to rest in the unseasonably hot spring of 1891. Sleep in Safety tells the story of James and Octavia Hatcher's unthinkable horror and how others who succumbed to a mysterious sleeping sickness unexpectedly woke up. Based on the story of Octavia's mistaken burial and evidence of her subsequent awakening six feet under, Sleep in Safety will have you wondering if she still haunts the hills of Pikeville.

New, original ballet by Bluegrass Youth Ballet Director, Adalhi Aranda Corn. The Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale is brought to life through dance! The Emperor of China is enchanted by the song of the nightingale! When given a mechanical bird, all interest is lost in the real nightingale, and she escapes the palace. The overused mechanical bird breaks down. A few years later the Emperor is deathly ill, and the real nightingale returns to recover the Emperor's health with her beautiful song.
Jennifer Levine (Bluegrass Youth Ballet)
The Norton Center for the Arts, Danville, KY
The sharp-dressed men of legendary rock band ZZ Top are bringing their signature mix of Southern rock, blues and boogie, to the Norton Center this fall. Guitarist Billy F. Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard are currently touring the country in support of their first studio album in nine years, La Futura. ZZ TOP’s music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful, and 100% Texas American in derivation. They’ve been thrilling audiences since the group’s inception in 1969 and can lay the undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original members intact. Their unmistakable sound and attitude have garnered them legions of fans and cemented their status as cultural icons with popular hits including, “Sharp Dressed Man,” “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Gimme All your Lovin’,” and “Tube Snake Boogie.” These Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons but, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. They’re real and they’re surreal and they’re ZZ Top.
