On August 3rd-5th, the cast and crew of Dream Reality Group, in partnership with The Park Theatre Group, will swing onto the stage of the Park Theater and present another breathtaking performance.

Disney’s Tarzan On Stage is based on Disney's epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan features heart-pumping music by rock legend, Phil Collins, and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. High-flying excitement and hits, like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart," as well as "Son of Man" and "Two Worlds," make Tarzan an unforgettable theatrical experience. Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan's life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion, as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

There will be three evening performances and a matinee on Saturday. Tickets will be $17 for adults and $14 for children 12 and under. Although tickets may be purchased at the door, it is HIGHLY recommended that you purchase tickets beforehand so you can reserve the best seats in the house as we anticipate every performance will sell out! This production is rated G for all ages. All ticket purchases are final and cannot be refunded.  For more information, go to or contact the Park Theater staff at 931-506-2787. We will see you all in the congo!  Directed by Logan Taylor.

Blackwood Quartet "The Gospel Side of Elvis" Concert , August 17  7:00PM
Tickets $20.00 - Reserved Seating

The Blackwood Family is the first family of Gospel Music, winning 9 Grammy Awards,
27 Dove Awards, and have sold over 60 million albums. The Blackwood Quartet is
uniquely positioned to present the Gospel music Elvis loved best. Elvis, in
fact, wanted to sing with the Blackwoods, but Sun Records signed him to a
contract, and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Blackwoods sang at Elvis's mother's funeral and at Elvis's funeral itself,
and it is a fitting tribute that the Blackwood Quartet is bringing The Gospel
Side of Elvis to the Park Theater on August 17th, almost 40 years to the very
day on which Elvis died in 1977.

If you love the best in Gospel music and hold the memory of Elvis dear, you
won't want to miss this performance.

He eventually started his own band and played for a number of years before meeting Conway Twitty. Jack sang on three of the first country songs that Conway recorded at Decca Records, including “It’s Only Make Believe”.

Don’t miss this chance to hear some of the inside stories about Conway Twitty – some sad, some funny, but all true!

The WannaBeatles in Concert, October 5  7:00 PM
Tickets $20.00 - Reserved Seating

When it comes to recreating the fun and excitement of the most popular band in music history, The WannaBeatles more than live up to their name.                  

As befits their Grammy finalist status, they are the only tribute act to have written songs for fellow nominees Paul McCartney and Betty White. The videos for “We Wanna Meet Paul” and “Oh Betty! (The Betty White Song) have brought smiles to fans and concert goers alike.

Entertaining at Nashville hot spots proved to be a springboard for higher profile shows which included appearances with such renowned artists as Wynonna Judd, Phil Keaggy, and Jonny Lang. Their performances at The Tennessee Performing Arts Center, The Music City Bowl, and Georgia’s New Year‘s Eve Peach Drop earned them enthusiastic reviews and standing ovations.

Whatever it takes, The WannaBeatles contenders use their multi-instrumental skills to re-create all eras of the Beatles song catalogue. Says Dennis Scott, the group’s founder, “We literally tie ourselves into pretzels to reproduce songs that The Beatles themselves never performed live.”

And maybe that’s what makes The WannaBeatles special. It’s a team effort that lovingly allows the audience to share in their journey to go "where no Beatles band has gone before."

Tickets go on sale soon!!
