Thelma Stowell, GinaWoodring and Bob Strohmayer as Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey.Those who attended performances by The Persimmon Tree Players over years past know Bob Strohmayer. A staple of the group for nearly 20 years, always the actor and sometimes stage manager and long-time president of the group, Strohmayer is thinking about leaving the limelight and hanging up his hat for good. He has said in the past that every show would be his last but this time Strohmayer would like Harvey to be his exit from the stage. This was a role very near and dear to him and as memorable as all his years spent in community theater.

It has been awhile since this writer has reviewed anything at Carysbrook but it was time to rally the community in support of the Fluvanna Arts Council and its hard work over the years.

The Chickenhead Blues BandIt’s been a long time coming but the time is finally here to show off the Fluvanna’s new performance venue. With the building of the new Fluvanna County High School, Fluvanna now boasts a 996 seat state-of-the-art auditorium complete with high-end sound and lighting systems. But this space is more than just lighting and sound, it is very easy on the eyes. With not a bad seat in the house the gold and chocolate colored seating add depth to a space dominated by red brick, slate grey block, and redwood side walls. The large stage is highlighted with light pine hardwood flooring downstage and with dark brown flooring upstage. Overhead there are long brushed aluminum panels flowing from the front of the stage in large waves. With its technical complements and stunning décor this auditorium is arguably one of the best in Central Virginia.
