ART Station announces lineup
Stone Mountain’s ART Station, one of only a handful of professional theaters outside I-285, has released its theater slate for 2011-12.
Dec. 8-23: “The Christmas Report.” Artistic director David Thomas’ lighthearted holiday script follows nutty reporters and stoic anchors as they cover strange goings-on at Mount Stone.
Feb. 9-19: “Name That Show.” An improv show in the spirit of TV’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”
April 12-15: “Tip Tap Two” featuring dancers Taps and Tre.
June 7-17: “Southern Voices.” With a script by David Thomas and David Hirt, storyteller Hirt spins tales about the “just plain folks” of the South.
Aug. 2-19: “I Ought to Be in Pictures.” Neil Simon’s 1979 play about a screenwriter dad trying to get the real-life script of fatherhood right.
