The Pride of the Yankees (1942)Starring Gary Cooper

It’s baseball season! But if you don’t want to just watch it on TV – you can celebrate it! Come to Liberty Hall in April.
First base is 1942’s “The Pride of the Yankees”. Gary Cooper plays legendary baseball great Lou Gehrig who played in 2,130 consecutive games before falling at age 37 to ALS, a deadly nerve disease which now bears his name. Gehrig is followed from his childhood in New York until his famous ’Luckiest Man’ speech at his farewell day in 1939. Don’t miss out and bring your tissue!

On April 17

Stuart Little is a realistic fantasy about a talking mouse born into an ordinary New York Family, but the family cat wants rid of him.  In a pleasant mouse like manner, shy but inquisitive, he is always getting into scrapes.  It’s the tale of a lone hero who leaves his family to embark on a difficult personal journey in search of what seems unattainable.  The many adventures, both big and small, of Stuart Little are brought vividly to life in this story-theatre presentation.  The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a “real people’s world.”

The History of Sign Stage on Tour

The history of Sign Stage on Tour is found in Cleveland Signstage Theatre (CST).  Sign Stage on Tour is a Deaf Theatre touring company that was started in 2001 by William Morgan and Erin LaFountain.  It was originally created as an equal but separate “touring arm” of CST.  In 2007 the Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center absorbed CST and simplified its name to SignStage.  Eleven years since it started… Sign Stage on Tour is still producing high quality classic children’s stories and performing them in both ASL (American Sign Language) and spoken English simultaneously.
and on April 21

Monte Montgomery

Monte Montgomery has taken the acoustic guitar beyond anyone’s expectations. With his amazing fretwork, unique combination finger and pick style playing through trailblazing “chordal” thoroughfares often baffling even the most accomplished players. While Monte remains a huge enigma in the guitar universe, his legendary reputation has spread like wildfire since he appeared on Austin City Limits.
In 2004 Monte was named on Guitar Player Magazine’s list of “Top 50 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time” and in 2005 he was featured the Covers of “Frets” and “Acoustic Guitar” magazines. Countless articles have been written about Monte describing him “The Evel Knivel of Guitar”, “Six Strings Attached To Dynamite”, “The Answer To The Fermi Paradox” and “The Acoustic Shred Master” just to name a few. Monte’s fretwork has become the benchmark for acoustic guitar players. “An American Original”, there is no doubt Monte Montgomery is destined to become An American Legend.
In spite of all the “six-string notoriety”, and just in case you didn’t “know-tice”, Monte isn’t just a “guitar hero”, “shred master” or “guitar god” as he’s most often described. No, actually Monte Montgomery is much more than just a world-class guitar virtuoso with more new tricks up his fret board than your average “guitar slinger”. What sets Monte apart from all others is that he’s one of the most accomplished songwriters of our time, a remarkable singer and an extraordinary music arranger. Many of Monte’s fans attend his concerts simply to hear his compelling vocals as he delivers his finely penned songs powerfully and passionately. To some, his incredible guitar pyrotechnics are simply an addition of tasty icing topping off a delicious cake.

Ramoth Gilead
Instead of the typical bio, here are a few facts about Ramoth:
Born in Dallas, the youngest of four.
Deeply involved in music since 1988; “I play various instruments (most surprising to people – tuba)”; writing songs since 1996.
In 2001, he earned a B.S. degree in Music Education, with plans to be a public school band director. He did teach for a short while until destiny pulled him towards the direction he is going now.
Traveling across the USA since 2005 by bus, plane, train, and automobile (mostly by bus), leaving behind his aspirations as a music teacher to make it as a full-time, modern day troubadour and hopefully more.
Some of his musical influences include Stevie Wonder, Larry Norman, and Andre3000.
He has been compared to Bill Withers, Cat Stevens, Paul Simon, Curtis Mayfield, Seal, Lauryn Hill, Robert Johnson, Ben Harper, James Taylor, Jack Johnson, and others.
Some of the artists/bands he has played  with include Grammy Award winner Madukwu Chinwah (Dallas), Seventh Day Slumber (TN), Paula Nelson (Austin), After Edmund (GA), Ivoryline (TX), Smoke E. Digglera (KY), NginaFayola (OH), The Red Ink Army (TX), The Rocketboys (Austin), and Phillip Boone (Austin)… just to name a few.
He has won top honors in a few singer-songwriter and talent competitions.
AND he actually did get a $325 citation for attracting a crowd with music. (An incident which inspired “Play For Change” now playing in his music player.)
“Most listeners find it difficult to categorize my sound. It’s hard for me to as well since it’s comprised of various genres/influences mixed into one. To help promote a show, just use these words: Acoustic Folk-Funk, Hip-Hop, Rock Rollin’, Soul-Singer and Travelin’ Songwriter! A lot of times I just call it soul music because so much of my passion, thought, and humor is put into it”, Ramoth Gilead.
Come and get a feel for Ramoth’s style!

“Bill Cosby” presented by UTT Cowan Center

Saturday, April 14th, 2012 @ 7:30pm                                                                                                     Charlie Chaplin. Groucho Marx. Richard Pryor. Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr.

His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.
In the 1960s, his stand-up act was a coast-to-coast sensation, spawning a string of hilarious, best-selling comedy albums, which went on to win eight Gold Records, five Platinum records and five Grammy Awards. His role on TV’s “I Spy” made him the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series, breaking television’s racial barrier and winning three Emmy Awards.
In the 1980s, he again rocked the television world with “The Cosby Show”, a gentle, whimsical and hugely successful series that single-handedly revived the family sitcom (and rescued NBC).
Bill Cosby is quite simply a national treasure with the unique ability to touch people’s hearts.
