Elizabeth Cook ‘Down South Tour’ with Darrin Bradbury @ Emma Kelly Theater
Feb 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

American country music singer Elizabeth Cook made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry on March 17, 2000. Cook, “the daughter of a hillbilly singer married to a moonshiner who played his upright bass while in a prison band,” was virtually unknown to the pop masses before she made a debut appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman in June 2012. The New York Times called her “a sharp and surprising country singer” and an “idiosyncratic traditionalist.” Cook graduated from Georgia Southern in 1996 with dual degrees in Accounting and Computer Information Systems. Darrin Bradbury will be the opening act for Cook, performing “off-color folk music celebrating the humor & heartbreak of the American underbelly, with songs of roadkill, junkies, Daffy Duck & Danzig.”-Rolling Stone.

The 25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee @ Emma Kelly Theater
Feb 8 @ 7:30 pm – Feb 10 @ 9:00 pm

Winner of the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. A fast-paced, riotous ride – complete with audience participation the musical comedy follows an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents as they battle for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter, but only one speller leaves!
