Shout Out To The Scene Stealers

As we near the final show in our 2016-17 Palladian Series, we want to give a shout out to The Clayton Center’s Scene Stealers. The Scene Stealers are a dedicated group of volunteers committed to providing our patrons with an enjoyable experience when they attend a Palladian Series show or other special event.

These individuals work as greeters, ushers and ticket takers; they distribute programs; and they assist with concessions during our shows. All of the staff at The Clayton Center are grateful for the volunteers — the show truly would not go on without them!

The Clayton Center established the Scene Stealers during the 2004 season, and the group has continued to thrive ever since.

So, if you are looking for a way to become more involved in the community, or if you would just like to get out and meet a wonderful group of people, The Clayton Center’s Scene Stealers may be for you. You can complete a registration form here, or send an email to eventinfo@townofclaytonnc.org.

 

Lawn & Disorder — Comedy From The Suburbs

Karen Morgan and Jim Colliton are two responsible grown-ups trapped inside the bodies of two brilliant comedians. On the other hand, maybe it’s the olawn and disorder at clayton centerther way around.

Either way, when Karen and Jim take The Clayton Center stage on Saturday, March 25, get ready to laugh. Their show – Lawn & Disorder –is a show about life as we know it in the suburbs of America. They talk about their spouses, their children, their neighbors and their parents. After you hear about what goes on in their neighborhoods, you may want to go home and take a closer look at your own!

Jim and Karen are comedy headliners who are as personally engaging and endearing as they are outlandishly funny, as utterly real and honest as they are sharp and keenly observant.

Karen Morgan is a former trial attorney in Georgia who just found her married life to be too funny to keep hidden away daily in a dour courtroom. She decided to give stand-up a try and ended up among the finalists on Nick at Nite’s “Funniest Mom in America.”

Jim Colliton goes through his daily family chores with the lawnmower and recycling carts from his home near Boston. His first TV appearances came on “Next Big Star,” and he has appeared with Patti LaBelle, Kenny Rogers and the Beach Boys. His “Stories from the Suburbs” was named JPF’s Best Comedy Album of the Year.

Tickets to Lawn & Disorder are $20, plus sales tax and fees. The show starts at 8 PM, and all seats are reserved. Click to purchase tickets.
