    1. Auditions for ‘The Addams Family’ @ Tusculum College
      12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

      GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – They’re creepy. They’re kooky. They’re coming to Tusculum College.

      Auditions have been announced for Theatre-at-Tusculum’s annual fall production. This year Director Marilyn duBrisk and her talented team are bringing a touch of the macabre to East Tennessee with their production of “The Addams Family Musical.”

      Actors, singers and dancers are needed to fill roles in a cast of 23, a decidedly smaller number than the usual cast requirements for many of duBrisk’s fall productions, which have numbered close to 100 in the past few years.

      The musical comedy, which is based on the single-panel cartoon characters originally created by Charles Addams in 1938, features the well-known Addams Family: the patriarch and fencing enthusiast, Gomez Addams; his voluptuous wife Morticia; and their slightly demented children, Wednesday and her younger brother Pugsley.

      The show includes other major members of the Addams Family clan, living and dead, including Gomez’s brother, Uncle Fester, Grandma Addams and their loyal-to-the-grave-and-beyond butler, Lurch.

      In addition, the show’s cast includes members of the Addams Family clan that have departed the living world in the form of a chorus of 12 ghostly Addams Family ancestors that span the ages, each from a different era.

      Other roles include the Beinekes, a normal midwestern family, who get pulled into the creepy, kooky, and mysterious world of the Addams Family for one evening. Lucas Beineke is Wednesday’s love interest, and his parents, Mal and Alice, are invited to dinner with the Addams Family.

      Auditions for adults, including high school students, will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 26 and 27, at 6 p.m. in the Annie Hogan Byrd auditorium at Tusculum College. Registration begins at 5 p.m. with auditions starting at 6 p.m.

      Junior auditions for “Pugsley Addams” will be held on Thursday, Aug. 28, for boys in fifth through eighth grade. Registration will start at 4 p.m. with auditions beginning at 5 p.m., also in the Annie Hogan Byrd auditorium.

      No prepared pieces are required for either audition.

      This musical comedy, which is the first stage show featuring the classic characters, made its debut on Broadway in 2010 starring Nathan Lane as Gomez Addams and Bebe Nuewirth as Morticia Addams. It received Tony Award nominations for Best Original Score and Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical for Kevin Chamberlin in his role as Uncle Fester. The show is written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, who also co-wrote “Jersey Boys.” The music and lyrics were written by Andrew Lippa.

      For more information please contact Arts Outreach at 423-798-1620.

      7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      The From Africa to Appalachia Foundation, in conjunction with Morristown Parks and Recreation, are presenting two free concerts featuring some of the best musicians in East Tennessee.

      On Saturday, August 30, at 7 p.m., The Streamliners will be bringing their high-energy big band/jazz music to Martin Luther King Park.

      Jenna and Her Cool Friends will bring their amazing blues sound to Fred Miller Park on Saturday, October 4, at 6:30 p.m.

      The Streamliners is a 19-piece volcanic explosion of high-energy big band music.

      Led by Morristown native Michael Spirko, the Streamliners is comprised of some of the best improvising jazz musicians in the area. According to Nate Arthur of The Daily Beacon, “They are a bona fide jazz dance band whose members have good chops and clearly love and understand the involved music they play. They fluidly blend the blues, bebop and traditional swing with a jump – inflection, and the boys have style to boot.”

      With a reverence for the rich tradition of the music, the group performs swing tunes of past big bands along with vocal icons like Sinatra and Joe Williams.

      According to Streamliners leader Michael Spirko, the group plans to do a tribute to two of the greatest big band / jazz musicians of all time, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.

      Listen to some of their music on their website: wwwthestreamliners.com.

      Vivacious vocalist Jenna Jefferson gathered Her Cool Friends-Michael “Crawdaddy” Crawley (harmonica/vocals), “Detroit Dave” Meer (guitar/vocals), Keith Ford (rhythm guitar/vocals), Glyn Loyd (bass/vocals), Kevin Redding (drums), and Ben Maney (keyboards/vocals) – for a Blues Cruise on the river in 2010, and a very cool new blues band with an all-star lineup was born. They became Knoxville’s most popular Blues band almost immediately, playing for appreciative audiences everywhere they went. In 2012, they represented Knoxville at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, making it to the semi-finals in competition with 118 other bands.

      Last year, they were voted “Best Blues Band” in the Metro Pulse readers’ poll and then released their debut CD, “I’m What You Get,” this March.

      Visit their website: www.jennaandhercoolfriends.com for more information about these talented musicians and their CD.

      These concerts are a continuation of a series begun by the From Africa to Appalachia Foundation in the fall of 2013.

      The organization’s president, Sammie Nicely, says, “We wanted to present different genres of music heavily influenced by African American artists.”

      Leading to this year’s jazz and blues concerts were gospel and old time concerts.

      “Thanks to the support of the Parks and Recreation Department and a grant from the Live to Give Foundation,” Nicely adds, “we are able to

      offer free admission to these performances.”

      Artists and crafters will be set up two hours before each show with a variety of high quality work for sale.

      Seating in the parks will be on bleachers.

      Feel free to bring your favorite lawn chair or a blanket to spread out and enjoy an evening of live music.

    3. Harvest Moon Festival @ Rogersville Lacal Artists Gallery
      10:00 am – 3:00 pm

      Rogersville Local Artists Gallery is celebrating the Harvest Moon Festival on Saturday; September 6 from 10am-3pm.  South Church Street in Rogersville TN is closed off for the festivities which include artists’ booths, music, food and a booth for discount coupons from area shops and restaurants.

      Saying thanks for the harvest at the time that the Harvest Moon shines brightest is an old tradition around the world.  In China this festival is the second most important day of their calendar.   According to Chinese tradition the lady ChangEr lives on the moon with her white pet rabbit.  When the Chinese sent a spaceship and a moon-crawler to the moon, they named the spaceship ChangEr and the crawler YuTi, or Jade Rabbit.

      For several years one of the Gallery artists, Monica Chua from Singapore, has celebrated this holiday with a private party at her home.  This year she asked if it could be a public event; and the Gallery selected September 6 as the day to give local people a chance to experience an artistic and culinary harvest with a Chinese flair and hometown flavor.  There are typical “Moon snacks” provided.

      In addition to the Chinese art on display, there are 30 other artists of various mediums displaying in the Gallery; and guest artists who have their work, will  exhibit in the booths.

      As a part of the festivities, music will be provide by Retha Ferrell, Mark Tyne, Guerry McConnnell and other guests.

      For further information, contact Mr. Ed Bosboom at harvestmoon.rogersville.tn@gmail.com or leave a message at the Gallery, 423-921-7656.

    2. “Grills Gone Wild” barbecue contest and festival @ Tusculum College
      2:00 pm – 10:30 pm

      GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – Going for the hardwood smoked, tasty goodness prize, those who think they know barbecue will be on the Tusculum College campus in September for the first-ever Grills Gone Wild barbecue cookoff and festival.

      The event is scheduled for September 12-13 on the Tusculum College campus. The Grills Gone Wild Barbecue Festival is organized by the Inferno Group of Harrogate, Tenn., and will feature top-flight barbecue masters competing for the $5,000 competition prize.

      This is the first year for the event, and organizers hope to draw people from around the region to participate and attend the festivities. The event has previously been held in London, Ky.

      Grills Gone Wild is a family-friendly event, which will include a barbecue cook-off, a car show, a 5K fundraiser run and many other activities. The event will be held in front of Pioneer Park.

      The public is cautioned that professional barbecuers will not be offering samples of their barbecue, but there will be food vendors available during the Festival.

      On Saturday, the car show begins at 2 p.m. and will include awards for Best of Show, Best Engine, People’s Choice and many others.  The “Run in Glow Motion” 5k Run/Walk begins at 8 p.m., with registration beginning at 6:30 p.m.  A post-race party will be held at 9:30 p.m. Registration for the race includes a gift bag with t-shirt, glow glasses and various glow products.

      Other weekend activities include vendors, inflatable attractions for children, live music and a cornhole tournament.

      This is a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event, where the teams will prepare their best ribs, chicken, beef brisket and pork.

      Grills Gone Wild activities will be tied in to Orange Rush weekend on campus, a series of events on the Tusculum campus to encourage engagement among new students joining Tusculum as freshmen or as transfer students.

      “We are very excited to blend the events of this festival with those set for Orange Rush Weekend,” said Dr.  Lisa Johnson, interim vice president for Academic Affairs. Encouraging our students to become part of the community is a big part of what the Orange Rush Weekend wants to achieve.”

      For more information on the event, contact David Martin, director of facilities at Tusculum College at 423.636.7300.
