CROSSVILLE — Last auditions for Crossville’s Got Talent will be this Saturday, April 19, at 1 p.m. at the Fair Park Senior Center. The center is at 1433 Livingston Rd. It looks like another good show, so miss this one.

The first-place winner will receive $300 plus two tickets donated from 102.5 WOW Country (special thanks to Ronnie Chase) to the Lady Antebellum concert that weekend. The second place winner will get $100 plus tickets to the Cumberland County Playhouse, and third place will get $50.

Tickets to the talent show are $10 and available at Fair Park. Crossville's Got Talent is sponsored by Mayberry's Furniture, Mayberry's Interiors, 5th Street Market Place, Simonton Cheese House, the Antiques and Collectables Market Place.

Would you like to have a better understanding between you and your dog? AKC judges, trainers and handlers from the Holly Cove Training Academy know all the techniques. They will be holding new classes at the senior center for the following: dog training — beginner basic obedience class will start at 6 p.m.; conformation class drop-in will start at 7 p.m.; and AKC rally novice class will be at 8 p.m.

The new classes will begin Wednesday April 16, at the senior center in the evening. The classes will be held every week for 10 weeks. No dogs the first night; they first must instruct the dog owners in how to communicate and handle their dogs. For more information and to register, call 788-1478.

Hawaiian hula dance lessons will be starting this week, with Noelani DeRossett. The first class is Tuesday with a intermediate class at 2 p.m., followed by a beginners class at 3 p.m. You can have fun learning with the ladies and being active at the same time. It is good exercise.

  • 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.
