Tater Patch's latest opens Oct. 24

Tater Patch Players
When the Tater Patch Players gave me the responsibility to direct the eccentric Little Shop of Horrors, I wasn’t sure what to expect. First, in spite of its title, be assured, there is NO HORROR in this musical. It’s a spoof of a show, meant to poke fun the awful “B” Science Fiction movies of the 1950s and ’60s. In fact, it is based on a 1960 movie of the same name directed by Roger Corman. The show is very firmly tongue-in-cheek, meant to amuse and entertain, not to scare.
The music is a kaleidoscope of styles - Doo-wop to Blues to Calypso.

Governor's Office press release
Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that he will sign an executive order to create an Ebola response team, which will assess current state health and emergency management procedures and produce necessary recommendations to minimize any potential impact of the disease in Georgia.
“Rest assured, Georgia is taking the threat of the Ebola virus seriously,” Deal said. “The creation of this team is an additional step in the state’s response to this disease and will further our efforts to ensure the safety and quality of life for our citizens. By combining the expertise of the health and research communities with our state agencies, Georgia will be uniquely positioned to combat the risks of Ebola should the need arise. Those that have been chosen to serve on the panel are leaders in their respective fields – specifically Emory University Hospital, which has remained at the forefront of our nation’s response to this infectious disease. We are taking every necessary precaution to alleviate fear within our communities and make certain Georgia stands prepared.”
