On Feb. 7 and 8 (Friday and Saturday evenings), The Celtic Band Jamboree will be held at The Sertoma Youth Ranch. Several Celtic Bands will be performing, including Marcille Wallis and Friends.
We asked Marcille Wallis and Matt Miller (fellow band member) a few questions to learn more about them, their music careers and their upcoming performance in Brooksville!
Marcille, you were born in Brooksville. Can you tell us more about your childhood in Central Florida?
You would think that being a teacher, mother and grandmother would be enough to keep anyone busy, but Terri Emerson also finds time to be a screenwriter. Her first film entitled “Bernie, the Dolphin” premiered a year ago. Now the sequel has just been released. It premiered in St. Petersburg on Dec. 13, 2019 and is also available on DVD and digital download on demand.

Do you like mystery and suspense? Do you like to laugh? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you will love the latest play at Stagewest Community Playhouse. “The Butler Did It” is playing November 10th-20th. Director David Stenger is incredibly excited about this show. He says it’s a play within a play with a surprise ending.
As you may have seen in our previous issue, during Brooksville’s Founders Week to celebrate the 160th Anniversary of the town, a number of wonderful events took place, including the Historic Mural Tour, which was led by Susan Rupe.
After we viewed the murals which depict the fire and police departments, the next mural on the tour Saturday Stroll painted in 2001, located on the A.L. Covell building at East Liberty Street and South Brooksville Ave. The mural was sponsored by James and Anna Covell, and designed and painted by Maurea Sleesman.
Family-focused fun. That’s the goal of Live Oak Theatre. CEO Vince Vanni says, "We want to do family friendly theater where parents and children act alongside each other. The veteran actors mentor the children." Their upcoming performance of Peter Pan is no exception.
“Sometimes in the mornin' when shadows are deep
I lie here beside you just watching you sleep
And sometimes I whisper what I'm thinking of
My cup runneth over with love
Sometimes in the evening when you do not see
I study the small things you do constantly
I memorize moments that I'm fondest of
My cup runneth over with love”
