What’s your cup of tea? Theater, comedy, R&B, country, classical music? There is a lot going on in the area this week, so there is absolutely no reason you should be bored, sitting in front of the t.v. watching re-runs.

Want to catch a play?

The Legacy Theatre continues their run of “High School Musical 2” Visit or phone 404-895-1473 for showtimes and ticket information.

Southside Theatre Guild in Fairburn will present the musical, “Snoopy,” Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m. Phone 770-969-0956 or visit for more information.

If you’d rather take an active role in theater, head over to Fayetteville First United Methodist Church tonight or tomorrow at 6 p.m. to audition for twilight Theatre’s production of “Annie Get Your Gun,” which is about Annie Oakley and not the cute, little red-headed orphan. Performances are Sept. 18, 19, 25 and 26 at ‘The Fred.’

If comedy is more your thing, comedian Jeff Lovett plays at Season Tickets in Fayetteville tonight at 9:30 p.m.

How about some music? If country music is what you like, the Senoia Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will be holding a free outdoor concert July 16 featuring Country music recording artist Erica Nicole in a debut CD release concert. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in downtown Senoia. The opening act will be the Southern Pride Band. Those attending the concert are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.

Want something that goes back a ways? The Spinners, of “Rubberband Man” fame will perform at “The Fred” on Friday and Saturday. Phone 770-631-0630 or visit for tickets.

If you’d like something that goes even further back, Ridge Davis, a Whitewater grad and rising sophomore at the New England Conservatory of Music, will perform a free flute concert at the Fayette County Public Library on Saturday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m.

Still need some ideas?

You could take your daughter to Barnes and Noble in Fayetteville on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. for an American Girl event.

If you’re young and you lean to the right politically, check out the Irish Bred Pub on Wednesday at 7 p.m. for a meeting of the South Metro Young Republicans.

If none of those ideas appeal to you, take a hike - I mean walk. Aside from some possible storms popping up here and there, the weather should be just fine for an evening stroll.
