Theatre Tuscaloosa

Tuscaloosa is known as a football town, but did you know it’s also a theatre town?  Tuscaloosa is home to several wonderful theatre companies.  One of the best known is Theatre Tuscaloosa which operates in coordination with Shelton State Community College.  Theatre Tuscaloosa has a reputation for excellence dating back to the 1970’s. 

During the month of December, we would like to offer the chance at one of three pairs of tickets to Theatre Tuscaloosa’s It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Come in to the office, pay December’s rent, and register to win! Remember, only one entry per resident.  It’s our way of saying thanks for participating n the November food drive, as well as, giving you a chance to do something out of the ordinary.

I you are not lucky enough to score a pair of tickets, you can still attend a show on a student budget. Theatre Tuscaloosa offers a “Pay What You Can” preview performance the Thursday night before opening night on Friday.  The beauty of this program is that you can donate items or pay as much as you can to see quality theatre.  Having been involved in a couple of theatre productions myself, I can attest to the fact that a Thursday night preview performance is as good as during the show’s run, and the performers appreciate a live audience.

While living here in Tuscaloosa, I encourage you to go check out a performance or audition and be a part of the show.  Check our blog, facebook, or the Theatre Tuscaloosa Website for performance and audition information.

Do You Know Your Neighbor?

So often, we go through our busy lives without ever taking the time to connect to the stranger living next door to us.  Since we at H.A. Edwards believe in the importance of community and family, we would like to start a series on our blog to introduce you to some of your neighbors who are doing neat, unique, and extraordinary things. 

First up is Brian Smith.  You may have seen him around the neighborhood biking on his Catrike (Click the word to find out more information).  If you don’t know Brian, watch the following interview by Olivia Grider, research project coordinator with the Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility.  If this interview doesn’t make you want to meet this charming, witty, and intelligent young man, we don’t know what will! Way to go Brian!

If you know a neighbor that fits the profile, send us a facebook message, email at, call at 345-1440, or drop by the office and nominate them to be profiled on our blog!

À la prochain,
