Shakespeare's Twelfth Night
Performance art at its finest comes to the Ozark Folk Center State Park this month.
The American Shakespeare Theater from Staunton, Virginia presents, in full costume and regalia, on the Ozark Folk Center State Park Stage, the comedy "Twelfth Night".
Writing at the height of his powers, Shakespeare provides a feast of language and songs — and a stage full of memorable characters — from the lovesick Orsino and Viola to the alesick Toby Belch, from the acquiescent Sir Andrew Aguecheek to the pompous Malvolio. Sublime and subversive, Twelfth Night breaks rules and bends gender to show love in all its guises and disguises.
Doors open with pre-show music at 6:30 pm. General Admission only, $17.00. Tickets are on sale now and at the door. Call 870-269-3851 to purchase yours.

Heritage Herb Garden Crew Wins
The annual Arkansas Flower and Garden Show, held February 22 through 24, 2013 took place at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The theme this year was “Home Grown Goodness”.
The Ozark Folk Center State Park Heritage Herb Garden crew, together with members of the Herb Society of America-Ozark Unit worked hard to build a demonstration garden and Herb Shoppe. They interpreted the show theme with an Ozark Homestead Garden; complete with log cabin, smokehouse, root cellar, springhouse, chicken yard with chickens, compost and vegetable and yarb gardens.
They did an incredible job and were awarded top honors both for Best Interpretation of Theme and the American Horticultural Society Environmental Award for "Best demonstration of skillful design that incorporates environmental stewardship in the garden."
