The annual Kirkin of the Tartans ceremony will be held this year, as usual, at First Presbyterian Church, Franklin, at the 10:00 am Worship Service, on June 17th. Church Community Relations Committee Co-Chairperson, Jim Geary, announced that, “Even though the Taste of Scotland festival will be missed by everyone this year, the Kirkin has been a part of Presbyterian tradition for sixty-five years. We will continue that tradition this year.”

Geary also commented that First Presbyterian Church hopes 2013 will see the return of the Taste of Scotland community festival, and that the church plans to make the Kirkin ceremony an integral part of any future festival.

The Overlook Theatre Company’s theatrical performance of “Where the Wild Things Are” is based on the children’s book of the same name. It follows a character named Max who makes mischief at home while playing in a wolf costume and is sent to bed without supper as punishment. His imagination runs rampant in his room as a wild forest and sea grows. In the land of Wild Things, he meets fearsome-looking monsters but proves to be the fiercest of all.

The play features music by Richard Adler with lyrics by Will Holt and has never been revived since it left Broadway. Catherine Cox, who played Viola, a lead role, in the original production, will guest direct the first performance since the closing in 1976.
