Calling all sweethearts, single ladies and single men! No better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than laughing the night away! Whether you have a special someone or are in the market to find that special someone, join us for this extra special evening. Main Event Comedy Club is bringing back Coach Tom Holaday, a Franklin favorite, Friday, February 15th! Coach Holaday started working comedy clubs in 1992, inspired by the joy and excitement he experienced getting laughs at high school banquets, assemblies, pep rallies, and fundraisers. Now, retired from teaching, the coach is touring clubs and speaking at corporate functions about his life as a father, teacher, and coach. Everyone has a family, went to high school, and enjoys sports (or at least is married to someone who does), and therefore can relate to the comedy of Coach Holaday’s life stories. You won't want to miss this Cupid of Comedy, Coach Holaday, so get your tickets now! Tickets only $15.00, General Seating. 18 and older, Adult situations and language possible. Doors open at 7:00 p.m., show starts at 8:00 p.m. Food and drinks are available at show, proceeds benefit Blackwater Community Events. Read More
The Virginia Symphony is a real treat for our area provided by the Camp Foundation. The orchestra has been under the direction of JoAnn Faletta since 1991. It has risen to celebrated artistic heights performing classical, pops, and family concerts in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Newport News, and Williamsburg. The Virginia Symphony also provides professional musicians and orchestral support for the Virginia Opera, the Virginia Arts Festival, the Virginia Stage Company, the Ballet, and the Todd Rosenlieb Dance Group. Our concert, a mix of classical and pops, will be conducted by Benjamin Rous, the Resident conductor who joined the Virginia Symphony in 2010. In the summer, he serves as faculty conductor of Greenwood Music Camp in the Berkshires in western Massachusetts. Read More
