Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park Presents: Joan The Girl of Arc: January 25 - 2:30pm
The Ft. Thomas/Carrico Library is constantly hosting great programs and events for the community. "Based on the famous story of the young woman who helped save France, this powerful and dramatic world premiere adaptation starts with Joan as a young girl, just starting to examine her own beliefs. As she begins to understand herself and the world around her, she learns to inspire and lead others. Her journey remains resonant and relevant for today’s teens," said the library's website. Registration is required through the library's website

This comedic adaptation of the classic tale, The Princess and the Pea, is fun for the whole family.  "Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again," said the FTIS website. The Highlands Theatre Department always has great theatrical performances, and this show is sure to keep you laughing. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for adults.

From the advent of ragtime, just before the turn of the century, through Blues, Dixieland and the early development of Jazz through the late 1920s, composers and musicians, created a unique American sound and musical language that can be traced to today's pop music."
