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.

 

All Laughs Really Do Matter

The Blackpack – three very funny African-American comedians – bring their show, All Laughs Matter, to The Clayton Center stage on Friday, January 20, at 8 PM. And while the Blackpack’s theme is a good-natured, often brutally honest look at our national political spectrum, the show’s title highlights a universal truth: All laughs matter because laughter is good medicineClayton Center laugh.

That’s right, research shows that laughter really is good for your health. Laughter relaxes the body, boosts the immune system, protects the heart, diffuses anger, burns calories and best of all, may even help you to live longer. A study in Norway found that people with a strong sense of humor outlived those who don’t laugh as much.

You can read more about the benefits of a good belly laugh at healthguide.org Then, make plans to enjoy more laughs at The Clayton Center. Tickets to The Blackpack are on sale now. In March, we also present Lawn and Disorder, relationship comedy based on everyday life. We care about our patrons, so we are doing our part to help you laugh your way through 2017!
