GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)
Happy Friday everyone!
There’s one sure way to get into the holiday spirit: enjoying a holiday classic. The Ocala Civic Theatres latest production, A Christmas Carol, should do the trick. The show gives you a chance to relive the story of Scrooge with an imaginative adaptation of the classic that stays true to Charles Dickens’ original work. Shows are Fridays at 7:30, Saturdays at 2 and 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. The show runs through Sunday, December 20th.
While we’re in Marion County, how about a little rock n roll to get your weekend started? At the Reilly Arts Center in Ocala, Classic Albums Live is featuring its latest performance - Creedence Clearwater Revival: Chronicle, Volume 1. The group plays CCR’s greatest hits from the album released in 1976. It starts tonight at 7:30.
Also on stage, this time in Alachua County, The Gainesville Orchestra continues its series of concerts, Secrets of the Universe. The latest concert celebrates the 250th birthday of the “titan” of music, Ludwig van Beethoven. The concert starts tonight at 7:30 at the Phillips Center in Gainesville.
It looks like a busy weekend in Newberry. The CountryWay Town Square Pro Rodeo returns for the third year. There’ll be plenty of action at the PRCA sanctioned event. It’s tonight and Saturday night starting at 8. Staying in town, the Newberry Fall Festival is Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm. Food, vendors, crafters and music are part of the event.
