Town & Gown Players Present
Servant of Two Masters is a wild and silly farce of mistaken identities, long lost lovers, angry fathers, a little cross dressing and one very hungry servant. It’s an 18thcentury play but with a modern sense of humor. Performances are Aug. 10-11, 16-18, and matinee performances Aug. 12 and 19. Tickets are $15 at www.townandgownplayers.org. Athens Community Theatre is at 115 Grady Ave.
Artist in Residence
WUGA’s Artist in Residence series continues on Aug. 25 when conceptual artist and graphic designer Michael Oliveri will open his home from 3 – 5 p.m. as a benefit for WUGA radio. An associate professor at the UGA art school, Oliveri has designed surfboards, furniture, and much more; he’s the founder of the school’s ArtX program, where students meld creativity with technical experimentation. It’s $10 for Friends and $20 for nonmembers. For reservations, firstname.lastname@example.org 706.542.9842.
Athens Ghost Tours
Starting in September, history buff Jeff Clarke and other costumed tour guides will take you on a 45-minute walk through downtown starting at the Athens Welcome Center and ending up at Creature Comforts. Last year’s tours were sold out so book early. The tour is for all ages and considered moderate exercise. For dates and times, call the Welcome Center at 706.353.1820.
