GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

British Farce Fun -- guest blogger Lost in Yonkers (Event #30)

Again, due to keif, I attended another event of many on her list.

Location: I live in Marietta and never went further than E Piedmont on Sandy Plains Rd. It was a surprise to see The Art Place - Mountain View located next to Mountain View Public Library along with the Mountain View Aquatics Center across the street. The building itself held photographs as well as bowls, urns, and other art work which was interesting to look over before the play, during intermission and after the play. It was a nice, intimate stage setting.

The play:  Wife Begins at 40 presented by CenterStage North.  The cast was an international group (Brits, Aussies, and Yankees). I'm bad at picking up accents and dialects but needless to say I couldn't tell the difference. If you are into British comedies, this is for you. There are the dry sense of humor, innuendos aplenty and endless hilarity. The absent minded grandfather who sums up the entire play in one line...I'll let you figure that out for yourselves. They even had the cutest miniature poodle in the play!

Keep up the good work and will attend next season!  Upcoming shows Dec 11 -Dec-20, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.
