February 25-27, 2022: Figaro, a play by Charles Morey. The Alabama School of Fine Arts Department of Theatre presents Figaro. Based on Beaumarchais’ comic masterpiece, FIGARO is the ultimate “cat & mouse” game. It's a fun & frolic take-aim at ruling-class entitlement that resonates just as surely today as it did in pre-Revolution France.
March 4-5, 2022: Senior Choreography Dance Project. ASFA dance seniors choreograph and produce this annual show performed by our accomplished dance students.
March 18-20, 2022: 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vies for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
