The role of Turandot will be sung by Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska, who has sung Turandot previously at the Ukrainian National Opera and at the Bolshoi, made her Met debut in 2012 singing the title role in Verdi’s “Aida,” which she again sang with the company in 2014. Tenor Yonghoon Lee is the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love. Saturday, May 7 at 1 p.m. Tickets: $25/adult, $23/members, and $5 youth 18 and under.

“Bright Star” – A Lincoln County Community Theater (LCCT) production - Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, “Bright Star” tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and 1940s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp, “Bright Star” is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
