Three beloved stories by Eric Carle, award-winning children’s book illustrator and author, are retold on stage through the magic of black light and fanciful puppets.

High up in the sky, Little Cloud playfully transforms himself into various creatures, including a sheep, and an airplane, a shark and more. The Mixed-Up Chameleon is bored with his life, sitting about predictably changing color all day. Following an adventurous trip to the zoo, he attempts to emulate the beautiful animals he sees before coming to the conclusion that there is value in his own unique self.

Straight No Chaser - Songs of the Decades

Straight No Chaser - Songs of the Decades

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 8:00 PM

Alabama Theatre

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses... think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. APT is out of tickets for this event, please visit the Box Office.

In the Light of Reverence

In celebration of National Native American Heritage Month, the Florence Indian Mound Museum will present a free showing of the PBS POV series film "In the Light of Reverence," Monday, Nov. 5 at 6:00pm. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Tantoo Cardinal (Metis), "In the Light of Reverence" is a beautifully rendered account of the struggles of the Lakota in the Black Hills, the Hopi in Arizona and the Wintu in California to protect their sacred sites. All are places of extraordinary beauty — and impassioned controversy — as Indians and non-Indians struggle to co-exist with very different ideas about how the land should be used. This program is sponsored by the City of Florence Department of Arts and Museums (add any additional partners or sponsors). The Florence Indian Mound Museum is located at 1028 S. Court St. Florence, AL and is open, Tuesday – Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Call 256-760-6427 for more information.
