BB-06 Birmingham Historic Theatre Package

Experience the splendor of Alabama's premier historic performing arts venues. The theatre package includes: Four (4) ticket vouchers (of up to $75 each) to a performance event at either the Lyric Theatre or the Alabama Theatre; eight (8) movie tickets to movies showing at the Alabama’s 2017 Summer Film Series (Friday nights and Sunday afternoons, June through August), and a private tour of one of the theatres. Because the venues differ in style and size -- the Lyric is a 1914 vaudeville house and the Alabama is a 1927 movie palace -- their proximity makes them unique. Each has been painstakingly restored to its former grandeur, giving Birmingham one of the finest theatre districts in the Southeast. The architectural tour of the Alabama includes a brief private concert and "audio tour from your seats" of the Mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ. The theatre tour will be scheduled on the day of the event selected, if possible, or at another mutually agreeable date and time. Selection of the performance event for which the ticket vouchers will be used must occur at least three weeks before the event to assure ticket availability. Expires 3-31-18.

L-018 Painted Violin by Montgomery Artist George Taylor

A unique violin painted in blue green, yellow, and brown of cotton bolls. Mr. Taylor a Montgomery native, attended the University of Alabama and earned a B.S. in Accounting in 1989. After spending an eternity the following autumn with an Atlanta CPA firm, he resigned to pursue his lifelong dream of being an artist. Further peregrinations took him back to Montgomery in 1995 to paint the people, places, and landscapes he loves. Taylor’s painting is now moving into true Impressionism. “I’m following the style of Monet and Pissarro, who were more concerned with light and form than realism,” said Taylor. He is a featured artist at the Kentucky Arts Festival, as well as other festivals and galleries around the South. George was also the featured artist of the HSO’s 2016 Art Party.
