"The Boys Next Door"
Arts Center of Cannon County.
Opens April 4
This very funny yet very touching play focuses on the lives of four mentally challenged men who live in a communal residence under the watchful eye of a sincere, but increasingly despairing, social worker. Filled with humor, the play is also marked by the compassion and understanding with which it peers into the half-lit world of its handicapped protagonists.
Show times and dates are April 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19 at 7:30 PM and April 6 & 13 at 2:00 PM
Tickets are available online at artscenterofcc.com and (subject to availability) at the door one hour prior to show time.

Stones River Relay 2014,
Race to the Mill
Saturday, April 5
Arts Center Of Cannon County, 1424 John Bragg Highway, Woodbury.
Entrants are welcome to participate in 1 or all 3 legs of the relay.
This is a fun, family event. Some do enter competitively. Both children and adults are encouraged to register. However, no children under 6 years old. Children 6-12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent, or designated guardian.
The Relay is a community event focused on getting people outside and onto the River. Beginning on Short Mountain – the highest point in Middle Tennessee – the Relay has three stages. The first leg is a run (mostly downhill). Stage two is a bike ride (again mostly downhill). Stage three is a paddle (downstream) : entrants will switch to canoes or kayaks at the Arts Center of Cannon County. At that location the River is deep and wide enough to accommodate a flotilla of paddlers who will work their way downstream ultimately exiting the River at the newly restored Readyville Mill.
Check-in on Event Day will be 8 to 8:30 a.m. at the Arts Center. Boats will be inventoried there; participants and their bicycles will be shuttled to the Short Mountain School where bikes will be inventoried; runners will then be driven to the top of Short Mountain to the Relay starting point. The Run – first leg of the Relay – will begin at 9:30 a.m.
