STONE MOUNTAIN ARTS CENTER GRAND OPENING (Photos by David Griffin Photograpy)

Stone Mountain Arts Center opened on Saturday, August 5th with the first of two sold out Stone Mountain LIVE shows, a Prairie Home Companion show Brownfield-style! A true variety of entertainment was provided by Carol Noonan and friends including professionals and local performers offering comedy, great music and song.

Bobby Barker made a rare appearance on the piano (left). Tim Ostendorf showed his talents as an opera
singer early in the evening and then got everyone laughing when he introduced his character
Mario Abondanza in a skit with Carol's sister Katie (right).
       
Laughs continued when Carol appeared with friend and neighbor Nancy Gavin as the Dump Babes. Acclaimed
soprano and longtime friend, Lisa Saffer, sang for us and made us laugh with her participation in the skits.
