Feeling that end-of-the-holidays letdown? The Averitt Center offers a month of events sure to chase away those January blahs.
Our newest Main Gallery exhibit, Art "That Touches the Soul", features works by artists Nigel Lambert and Margaret Warfield. Join the Averitt Center and sponsor Cleve White Nissan at the closing reception, offering complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres, on Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. Celebrate life in whirling color and visit this exceptional exhibit!
On Jan. 9, pay tribute to country music history with Bill Dewey's renditions of Johnny Cash classic hits. Dewey's album "My Tribute to Johnny Cash" is internationally respected as one of the best Cash tribute albums on the market. Dewey and his band are energetic, electric performers with a unique style. In the traditions of country/honky-tonk, and rock and roll, Bill's sound and stage presence are memorable and exciting. Join Farmers and Merchants Bank in welcoming Bill Dewey to Statesboro.
The Averitt STARS and Citizens Bank present the Pulitzer-prize winning "Driving Miss Daisy" Jan. 16 -18 at the Emma Kelly Theater. Directed by Professor Gary Dartt, the dream cast is comprised of Carol Thompson as Miss Daisy, Alan Tyson as Boolie and Mical Whitaker as Hoke. "Driving Miss Daisy" ranks with "To Kill a Mockingbird" for content, historical introspection and social importance, yet plenty of Southern humor surfaces. Don't miss this sure-to-sell-out performance.
The month of January need not be boring. Fine dining is available downtown, there is plenty of parking, the weather is mild... what's your excuse for not visiting the Averitt Center?
Bring friends - enjoy dinner and a stage performance or drinks and an art exhibit at the Averitt Center and beat those January blues.
Tickets for all upcoming performances are sold through the Emma Kelly Theater Box Office.
