Go on an adventure with an old classic, take part in a fun new festival and celebrate the coming of fall this weekend in Maury County.
1. ‘James and The Giant Peach’
Kicking off its 2018-2019 season is Watershed Public Theatre’s production of the popular Roald Dahl adventure classic, “James and The Giant Peach,” at Columbia State Community College.
Join James and his insect friends Miss Spider, Old Green Grasshopper, Centipede, Lady Bird and Earthworm as they travel across the Atlantic Ocean inside the magical giant peach. The tale shares a message of timeless friendships and what can be accomplished through teamwork.
The adaptation is also the directorial debut of Spring Hill actor and artist Brad Oxnam, who has starred in several Watershed productions, including “A Victorian Christmas Carol” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
“The script creates a theatrical retelling of Dahl’s story. James and his friends recreate every moment and character, and the result is both simple and highly enjoyable,” Oxnam said.
Performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Ledbetter Auditorium in the Clement Building, with a 2:30 p.m. matinee Sunday. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids and students, which can be purchased at the door or at www.watershedtheatre.org.
2. Harvest Point Festival
Celebrate the upcoming fall season with a visit to one of Maury County’s largest neighborhood developments.
Harvest Point, located off Cleburne Road next to Spring Hill High School, will host its Harvest Festival event from 2-4 p.m. Sunday. The free family friendly event will get you in the mood for the season of pumpkins, hay rides and when the trees begin to shed their leaves.
Visitors to the Harvest Festival can enjoy free hay rides, free food from local food trucks and even take a few fall photos. Several craft vendors will be onsite selling handmade crafts, and there will also be chances to interact and possibly adopt a new pet.
Those interested in touring and purchasing a Harvest Point home can tour each of the neighborhood’s model homes, as well as preview amenities. These amenities include a community garden, dog park, hiking trails, a pool, picnic areas and more.
