04-13-11-a-slice-of-saturday.jpgAs an entertainment lover, I find it very relaxing to go home on a Friday or Saturday night and pop in the latest movie to come out on DVD. However, I also love to experience the joy of live theatre. There is nothing like seeing actors perform on stage, making your break for the restroom during intermission or laughing hysterically with the person sitting beside you. All of these things are what one can experience by going out and supporting a live-theatre performance.

The ‘60s musical: A Slice of Saturday Night will be performed in the Butler Theatre, located on the campus of Fayetteville State University, April 14-16. The shows will start at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range in price from $2 - $10.

Most of the shows action will be set in “The Club-A-Go-Go” which is operated by Eric ‘Rubber Legs’’ DeVere. Devere is an old rock star who, like most teenagers, is fascinated by the fun-filled action that takes place on Saturday nights. The show’s plot is centered on teenagers, their hormones and their unpredictable behaviors.

The play will take a look back at an era fi lled with “fast-moving score of doo-wop, soft rock and many laughs (and a few reminiscent sighs) along the way!” called the ‘60s. It is Saturday Night at the provincial “Club A-Go-Go” and with three blokes down and four birds out and ready for pull, these teenagers are about to have some fun.

A Slice of Saturday Night will be the fourth show performed by Fayetteville State University’s theatre department, and it will also be their final show of the season. A Slice of Saturday Night is directed by Phoebe Hall, musical direction is by Howard Kim, and choreography is by Avis Hatcher-Puzzo. Everyone is encouraged to arrive on time, because after the show has started no one will be seated until intermission (this is another added pleasure of live theatre).

Make it a family affair on April 14, 15 or 16 and take the entire family to relive or experience the action-packed decade of the ‘60s. Go and see A Slice of Saturday Night. Shows begin at 7:30 p.m.
