CROSSVILLE — Seniors are always looking for something to do, and that is what Fair Park is all about. From Tai Chi to line dancing, a game of pool to bingo and more, it is all available at the senior center for the 60-plus population in Cumberland County.

The seniors also enjoy being entertained. Some of the performers of the new Curtain Call Dinner Theater will be visiting the center this Friday at 10 a.m. Dennis Donald, actor, decided seven years ago to be close to his parents in Fairfield Glade and quickly got busy with the Cumberland County Playhouse, and Palace Theater.

Joining him will be his friend, Rusty McClanahan, singer for the big band in Fairfield Glade. He has also performed at the Playhouse and Palace and will be joining Donald to sing a few songs.  

Curtain Call Dinner Theater has a different show every month. Until Nov. 23, they are doing “Malt Show Music and Memories.’’ In December, it will be an old-fashioned Christmas variety show every week in the style of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Perry Como.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
