  • Stephen Foster announces time change

     After more than a decade of an 8:30 p.m. show time, “The Stephen Foster Story” and Salt River Electric production “All Shook Up” will start 30 minutes earlier in 2015. Both shows will begin at 8 p.m. at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre in Bardstown this summer, with the house opening at 7:15 p.m. for seating.

    An earlier start time is favorable for our motor coaches, groups, and individual audience members alike. One added benefit for guests will be a larger selection of dining options after the performance, as both shows will end at 10 p.m.

    Velma Wells and her daughter, June Whitlock, got creative during the recent snowstorms. They stitched together a 90x36-inches playhouse – much to the delight of Velma’s granddaughters. The fabric covered a table, making a perfect hideaway for Ava Legaspi, above, who was celebrating a birthday. The windows were made of sheer material; the door knobs were painted buttons. The flowers were made of “yo-yo”
