The community-focused Theatre in the Square fetes playhouse enthusiasts with riveting tales from classic, modern, and local scribes. Bursting onto the 225-seat MainStage is The Little Foxes, a familial yarn about trickery surrounding a husband's fortune. Recommended for ages 14 and up, the story brims with deceit, humor, and the complicated trappings of family life, especially for siblings that have trouble sharing stage props. Meanwhile, Circle Mirror Transformation examines the inner workings of acting class participants as they delve into their created characters while excavating the artifacts of their own personality. An off-Broadway hit, the play provides theater-goers with an amusing peek into the intricately convoluted minds of scene crafters.

If you plant it, they will come. The words rang in Jim Bennett’s ears as he shot awake in September 2009. Jim had dreamed of taking his daughter to a pumpkin patch, and when he awoke that night he scribbled plans to bring that dream to life. Over the next year, Jim and his crew hand planted pumpkin seeds on the fourth-generation Bennett Farm to prepare it for a fate quite different than its 60 years as a cattle farm without a single crop grown on it.
These days, pumpkins and gourds wait on the vine in three patches as hayrides pass by daily. At the petting farm, youngsters interact with sheep, miniature horses, and miniature-miniature horses, which mice rode in the old west. Kids can also navigate a hay-bale maze, frolic in the corn crib, and race down a 36-inch, 20-foot-long pipe slide.
Chefs in the cook house craft teacakes, pork skins, and apple pies with a wood-burning stove and wash pots hanging over an open fire. In the sorghum mill, workers transform farm-grown cane syrup, which the Bennetts sell in their country store alongside handmade soap and honey from local vendors.
The challenging 10-mile Tough Mudder course was designed by British Special Forces to test all-around strength, endurance, mental determination, and camaraderie, with all sponsorship proceeds benefitting the Wounded Warriors Project. Over the course of an estimated 2.5 hours, rugged participants weave their way through a diverse terrain that boasts 19 demanding obstacles, including muddy trenches, water obstacles, high walls, slippery slopes, live wires, and a gauntlet of fire. Tough Mudder challenges the fittest of fit athletes, demanding mental toughness to match physical prowess, but emphasizes the course as a personal challenge, and not a race. Times are not kept, and it's about conquering the course rather than besting fellow Mudderers. Hardened course finishers enjoy a post-contest party with live music and a 48-hour glow of invincibility.
