The Licklog Players are working hard to organize 25 years of costumes, props, flats, tools, play scripts and many other items in their new home in the Creekside Plaza. They have a large area in the mall across from the ABC Store on Route 17 in Hayesville.

Volunteers have been busy going through hundreds of costumes----from ball gowns and wedding dresses to flapper outfits. Popular director, Nancy Davis, who will be directing “Annie Get Your Gun” this summer as well as “A Christmas Carol” is on the look-out for costumes she can use. Musical director Paul Dyer has given countless hours helping Licklog. They are looking forward to doing the summer musical. Alexa Lichate and her helpers come two days a week to be sure the costumes are in good order. Everything from old record players to a knight in armor have to be carefully stored for future use. Many others have helped.


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, under the direction of Scotty Corbin, will present “Where the Wild Things Are” on Tuesday, February 7 at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. Showtime is set for 7 P.M. and tickets are $10 each.

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.
