1202 7 Stages.jpg

Experience a thought-provoking array of interactive art installations, performances, and films as you journey through 7 Stages to envision the future.

Are we ready to talk about it yet? The ‘F’ word we’ve all been terrified to mutter? The dazzling ‘F’ we all secretly fantasize about exploring, even as recent shifts by certain unnamed variants have forced our dreams into agonizing quarantine yet again? This word sends shivers down spines of warriors, puzzles devoted geniuses, and wipes canvases clean for creators. This is a critical time to ask what we want: How do we move forward with reflection and accountability? How do we dream cultural justice into practice, choose risk over complacency, irreverence over veneration, creation over destruction?  What are our darkest nightmares or boldest dreams? 

We invite you to explore all the beauty and terror of Curious Future Encounters. This four-day festival brings together artists of many disciplines, providing a platform for boundary-pushing works with a focus on interactive elements. Explore the future as envisioned in live performances and installations by D. Woods, Stephanie Kohler, Diego Serna, Jillian Mitchell and company Kit Modus, Nadya Zeitlin, Mariposas Rebeldes, The Radical Archive of Preservation, and short films by Mark Blane, JJ Watson, James Proctor, Lauren Vick, Nina Marinov, Full Radius Dance, Celeste Miller, Embodied Social Justice, and Sean Dorsey. 

The festival offers timed-entry tickets, during  which small groups of audience members journey through the 7 Stages building. Please arrive 15 minutes before your allotted time and check in at the box office. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test are required for entry. Masks are mandatory for audience members for the full duration of the experience. For more information on 7 Stages’ health and safety policies, visit

The 12 Dates of Christmas: A Holiday Play with Music

Written by Gina Hoben

Directed by Lynna Schmidt

Featuring McKenzie McCart


After seeing her fiance kiss another woman at the televised Thanksgiving Day Parade, Mary's life falls apart -- just in time for the holidays. Over the next year, she stumbles back into the dating world, where "romance" ranges from weird and creepy to absurd and comical. It seems nothing can help Mary's growing cynicism, until the charm and innocence of a five-year-old boy unexpectedly brings a new outlook on life and love. This heartwarming one-woman play offers a hilarious and modern alternative to the old standards of the holiday season.

Seniors, Students, and Military may use the code 'thanks' to get 25 dollar tickets.

We are requiring masks for all patrons of this show. Please wear one at all times.

1129 White Christmas 2.jpg

Cobb PARKS & the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre presents WHITE CHRISTMAS- the live and indoor concert!


Cobb PARKS and the Jennie T. Anderson Theatre are concluding their 2021 concert season with the holiday classic, WHITE CHRISTMAS. It will feature 20 actors and an orchestra of 12 musicians. “We were fortunate enough to have a safe and full season of streaming and in-person shows, this year, at the Anderson Theatre," says Jono Davis, Managing and Artistic Director. "We want celebrate the end of the year with a show we've been waiting to produce for years."


Trevor Martin stars as Bob Wallace and WHITE CHRISTMAS (based on the 1954 classic film) is a very special memory for his family. "My grandma introduced me to the movie when I was very young. She was a singer and performer (and somehow also raised 5 kids!) and she was my biggest inspiration to be a performer. She had 5 brothers, all of which fought in WWII overseas." The show begins at the very end of the second World War, as troops somberly celebrate Christmas Eve. "She passed away at the beginning of the pandemic (non-Covid related), but her husband (who is now 95 and also fought in WWII) and a lot of my family are hoping to come to the show on what would have been her birthday, December 18. My grandma singing the song 'White Christmas' on her cassette tape karaoke machine is one of my earliest and most cherished memories of the holidays." 

Several others in the cast and creative team are looking forward to seeing audiences again. Director Ricardo Aponte adds, "During this pandemic, I have discovered a deeper value for family and friends and the importance to capture moments that we’ll remember forever. I think it’s time to welcome new traditions into our lives, and going to see live theatre again this holiday season is the perfect way to celebrate the love and appreciation we have for each other."


"Before the pandemic, I saw as many shows as I could, but then things shut down and shows were canceled. I missed theatre so much," says Kayla Furie who plays 9-year-old Susan Waverly. "Every time a show happens now, whether I am performing in it or part of the audience, I know that it is a blessing. I am so excited for audiences to see WHITE CHRISTMAS because we are bringing people together to celebrate live theatre and that is a true blessing- and as Mr. Wallace says, we should always, "Count (our) blessings, instead of sheep."


WHITE CHRISTMAS stars Trevor Martin* as Bob Wallace, David Rossetti* as Phil Davis, Alison Wilhoit as Betty Haynes, and Kari Twyman as Judy Haynes. The cast is rounded out with Atlanta favorites, Charlie T. Thomas, Christy Baggett, Kayla Furie, Terrence Smith, Trevor Rayshay Perry, Ally Duncan, Chelcy Cutwright, Kendrick Taj Stephens, Lauren Brooke Tatum, Jessica Pack Olson, Brennan Parker, Jenna Jackson Morris, Alexandria Joy*, Izzi Robles, Lamont J. Hill, and Daniel Burns. This concert-staging is directed by Ricardo Aponte, music directed by Chris Brent Davis, and choreographed by Lauren Brooke Tatum. This production is sponsored by Kennesaw Pediatrics and is a co-produced event with the Atlanta Lyric Theatre.Learn more at

1118 Shrew.jpg

The Taming of the Shrew is RoleCall's ninth production for their Shakespeare in the Ponce series. This winter show will be performed in the intimate indoor space at RoleCall Theater inside Ponce City Market. Staged in thrust with a small company of six actors, you won't want to miss this silly and satirical presentation of one of Shakespeare's most examined works. Directed and produced by RoleCall's in-house Shakespeare team, Evan Fields and Lyssa Hoganson, performances will take place Thursdays through Sundays at 7:00 pm from Dec. 2nd through Dec. 19.

Summary: The Taming of the Shrew begins with a mischievous nobleman tricking a drunken tinker named Christopher Sly into believing he is actually a nobleman himself. The main plot then begins, as the nobleman then has the play performed for Sly's diversion. Lucentio and his servant Tranio are newly arrived in Padua when Lucentio quickly falls in love with Bianca Minola, daughter of Baptista Minola. Baptista will only allow Bianca to marry after her sister Katharina, the titular shrew, has found a husband. Petruchio is an old friend of Lucentio's rival suitor, Hortensio, and takes little convincing to court the shrew himself after hearing the size of her dowry. Petruchio sets out to "tame" his unwilling bride while Lucentio and Hortensio vie for Bianca's love, eventually leading to one of Shakespeare's most controversial endings.

Everything is nice when you add a little cinnamon spice! The holiday sequel to the ART Station Southern hit GRITS: Girls Raised in the South centers on hilarious tales of holiday soirées and endearing family dysfunction. Four Southern belles from four different generations cope with their countrified Christmas celebrations. It’s a little bit funny, a bit touching, and somewhat ridiculous, but all in the flavor of the South. The play is guaranteed to get everyone in the Holiday Spirit!.

Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island), breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of A Christmas Carol.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

A Christmas Carol is a spectacular Broadway musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ most well-known story and a Woodstock holiday tradition!

An Actor’s Carol

Adapted by Tim Blewitt and David Weber from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

Original direction by Tim Blewitt

1 Man. 22 Characters. Lots of Bells.

Using Dickens’ timeless story as source material, An Actor’s Carol takes you on a 50-minute journey of redemption. Told through the eyes of our clown, this production provides an athletic twist to a well-known tale.

An Actor’s Carol was performed in North Georgia in December 2020 for a limited nightly audience of 25. With this production, Promontory Players has devised a new work that is a must-see for anyone interested in the powers of creativity and storytelling.

The original run of An Actor’s Carol garnered high praise from critics: Chris Crawford, Chair of Theatre at Young Harris College, called An Actor’s Carol a “must see production” and Bert Osborn of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution said Weber is “the most underrated actor in Atlanta is astonishing in this tour de force.”

Following the recent successful run of An Actor’s Carol, David Weber joins forces with Underground Atlanta to remount this stunning theatrical piece for a welcoming and thriving artistic community.

Christmas isn’t about the gifts — it’s about the people you spend it with. You probably didn’t need us to tell you that, but the protagonists in Gift of the Magi 2.0 could probably use a reminder. Marietta’s New Theatre in the Square presents this adaptation of O. Henry’s timeless holiday fable by N. Emil Thomas for the 5th year in a row. Jim, an Atlanta streetcar driver struggling to make ends meet during the Atlanta Transit Strike of 1950, goes to great lengths to buy a Christmas gift for his wife Della, unaware that Della is going to similar lengths to afford a gift for him. This story of family, sacrifice and the blessings we take for granted is coming to Marietta’s Theatre in the Square this holiday season.

Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller's attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller's struggle to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey's fight to mount his production of A Christmas Carol despite the town controller of the electric company threatening to turn the lights off. The play is both an affectionate commentary and withering satire of small town, Southern life and attitudes. A Tuna Christmas is the second in a series of comedic plays set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas. Two actors play all 20 zany characters.

This show is rated PG-13.

Oh, you know the story: A Christmas Carol opens on a bleak, cold Christmas Eve in London, seven years after the death of Ebenezer Scrooge’s business partner, Jacob Marley. Scrooge, an aging miser, dislikes Christmas (“Bah, Humbug!”). In this one-man version, adapted by and starring Stuart W. Schleuse, you will be immersed in the storytelling so much that you really think that you are seeing ghosts.

This virtual production is adapted by Bay Street Theater Director of Education & Community Outreach, Allen O’Reilly, who also directs the show. The production is streaming now and will be available through December 5.

Set in 1963 Scotland, the Literature Live! adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth introduces a modern retelling of the seminal tragedy with no alterations to the original compelling text. One part Macbeth and one part One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, this Literature Live! staging replaces the lofty setting of Castle Inverness for a chilling and sterile Sanitorium, within the confines of which the play’s dramatic scenes unfold

The exciting cast features seven actors who play a total of 24 roles, including many who have appeared in past Literature Live! stagings. The cast includes: Matthew Henerson (Macbeth); Erin Margaret Pettigrew (Lady Macbeth); Genevieve Simon (Malcolm); Joe Pallister (Macduff); Allen O’Reilly (King Duncan); Teresa DeBerry (Ross and Witch); and Gabe Portuondo (Banquo).

The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do Re Mi,” “Sixteeen Going on Seventeen” and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

TOOTSIE, the hilarious Tony Award-winning musical, is coming to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta for a limited one-week engagement from Jan. 25-30, 2022. To celebrate Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta’s 40th anniversary season, a select number of $40 tickets will be sold for each performance. Tickets will be available at

Call it “musical comedy heaven” (Rolling Stone). Call it “the most uproarious new musical in years!” (The Hollywood Reporter). Call it Tootsie! This laugh-out-loud love letter to the theater tells the story of Michael Dorsey, a talented but difficult actor who struggles to find work until one show-stopping act of desperation lands him the role of a lifetime.

Featuring a hilarious Tony®-winning book by Robert Horn and an outrageously clever score by 2018 Tony-winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), this New York Times Critic’s Pick is “a joyful delight” (The Washington Post) that’s “so packed with punchlines, it should be called a jokebox musical!” (Bloomberg). “In these turbulent times, when the world seems out of balance, we need a place to let the good times roll,” raves Rolling Stone. “Tootsie is it!”

Tootsie is based on the story by Don McGuire and Larry Gelbart and the Columbia Pictures Motion Picture produced by Punch Productions and starring Dustin Hoffman. The National Tour of Tootsie is produced and managed by TROIKA Entertainment.

Information about the venue’s enhanced health and safety measures can be found on the Fox Theatre website. The health and well-being of audiences, touring productions, staff and all venue personnel remains top priority.

When: Wednesday, Dec. 8th 7:00-8:30pm

Where: ArtsXchange | 2148 Newnan St., East Point, GA 30344

Many LGBTQ create community, or family outside of their biological families - sometimes by choice and other times out of necessity to gain a sense of belonging. As we celebrate the legacies of Sis. Rosetta Tharpe and Marie Knight, who created their own community together while traveling the Jim Crow South of the 1940’s, we welcome a conversation on the ways that Black LGBTQ form meaningful bonds and a home away from home.

This special event will feature songs from our production of Marie and Rosetta, as well as an opportunity for audience members to perform scenes from the show while being coached by True Colors’ Artistic Director, Jamil Jude!

*Due to public health safety measures, this event will be limited capacity and masks will be required. Please RSVP HERE
