February Arts Events @ Averett

February 1, 2011

Looking for something to do this month? Look no further! Averett has two events scheduled this month as part of its spring arts series. First up is "Urinetown" The Musical, a comedy, which will be performed Feb. 24-26, at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 27 at 2:30 p.m. in Pritchett Auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students/senior citizens. For more information call the Pritchett Auditorium box office at 791-5712.

A Tony Award winning production, "Urinetown," The Musical is a satirical comedy that tells the story of a town put on water restriction due to a 20-year drought. The restriction is so stiff that the citizens actually have to pay to use the bathroom. If the citizens cannot pay the fine to pee they are not allowed to go the restroom that day, and if the law is broken, the offender is sent to a penal colony, "Urinetown," from whence they never return. One day, the mega corporation Urine Good Company hikes the fees, causing the poor people to revolt. To find out what happens to the people of the town following the revolt you'll have to come see the play, because you won't learn anything else here.

Immediately following the closing of the musical motivational speaker turned author Brian D. Biro will discuss his book, "Beyond Success: The 15 Secrets of a Winning Life!" at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 28 in Blount Chapel. The event is free and open to the public.

Biro has been a professional speaker, seminar leader and transformational leadership coach for the past two decades. In "Beyond Success," Biro explains how crucial it is to develop flexible, ethical, highly skilled and deeply principled leaders who are dedicated to building an outstanding team. He has presented seminars throughout the U.S. to such organizations as Ford Motor Company, Pizza Hut, AT&T, RE/MAX, and Lockhead Martin.
