The “Odd Couple” Comes To Fairfield Bay

The “Odd Couple”, the female version, will be performed at the Bay View Club in Fairfield Bay. Our Town Productions, formerly Stas’ Productions will be putting on this comical version.

Come join the antics of Florence and Olivia. After some time of playing trivial pursuit with their female friends, Olivia decides it’s time for her and Florence to have dinner with a couple of Spanards that live in the building. What transpires is hilarious fun.

Playing the parts are: Jackie Berbusse as Florence, Sharon Luxon as Olivia, Cindy Ritchie is Mickey, Rose Owen as Vera, Janice Thompson as Sylvie, Linda Tangen as Renee, David McBee as Jesus, and Dan Feuer as Manolo.

Tickets are now on sale at the Fairfield Bay Library, 1 for $15 or 2 for $25. The show times are Friday and Saturday October 26 and 27 at 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, November 2 and 3 also at 7 p.m.

This is a benefit for the Fairfield Bay Libary, so come and enjoy an evening of laughter. For more information contact the library at 884-4930.

Bob Boyd is coming back to Fairfield Bay! The North Central Arkansas Foundation for Arts & Education will present this free concert on Sunday, October 7 at 3 p.m. This exciting event will be held at the Lion’s Den on Dave Creek Parkway. Bob Boyd and his band will be entertaining their audience with music from the Big Band Swing era, hits from Sinatra, Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles to name a few. They will be singing in four-part harmony, as well as individually. The Bob Boyd Sounds consists of band leader, Bob Boyd, who classifies himself as a ‘piano stylist’ rather than a jazz pianist, plays a variety if piano styles and sings as well. David Higginbotham plays the old-style standup bass and Alembic fretless electric bass, and has a beautiful tenor voice that provides the lead for many of the bands songs. Randy McDonald is an extraordinary drummer who also plays piano and bass, and sings background harmony. Pat Henry plays trumpet, valve trombone and flugelhorn, and play piano, bass, drums and instruments as well. Bob states, “All of us are bandleaders in our own right. But the sum is greater than the parts. We have played together so much that we can anticipate each other’s every move, every note.” He enjoys writing vocal arrangements for the band and looks forward to every concert, as does the other members of the band. Everyone is invited to the concert and to dance to familiar tunes as well. Refreshments will be served by NCAFAE.
