"Willy Wonka Jr."

Northeast Georgia Mountains
The Holly Performance Academy presents Roald Dahl's "Willy Wonka JR." The show follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats, but the fifth is a likable young lad named Charlie Bucket, who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka's rules in the factory — or suffer the consequences. Friday and Saturday performances at 7 p.m.; Sunday at 2 p.m.

SAM Shortline Railroad Excursion

Presidential Pathways
The SAM Shortline is an unmatched travel experience for you, friends and family. Georgia’s only rolling state park combines the rich history of the area and classic railroad travel with pleasure and relaxation. The vintage train cars vary in ambiance but all provide climate-controlled comfort and large windows to view the passing Southwest Georgia scenery. Your destination, Plains or Archery -- depending on the trip, is rich in history. The town of Plains, home of our 39th President Jimmy Carter, offers an inside look at his campaign and his life and in so doing provides an education in American politics. Archery, President Carter’s boyhood home, also gives you an up-close look at rural life in the early 1900’s. There is so much to do in both places time will fly. Then you can sink back in your comfy seats and enjoy the leisurely return.
