Attend the wedding of the year this weekend

DOUBLE SPRINGS - The Free State Theater Troupe's production of "Virgil's Wedding," directed by Beth Wilson Gilbreath, opened last night at Double Springs Middle School. A musical comedy full of surprises, "Virgil's Wedding" features nineteen talented young actors from across Winston County. With very natural, nigh on flawless performances, they keep the audience laughing throughout--except when they sing. Then a hush falls. There are two more chances to attend: 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, and 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 27, in the DSMS gym.
