3 fun things in Alpharetta, Dunwoody, Newnan


“Every Little Crook and Nanny” at ACT1 Theater

Retired nanny Lillie Scones goes about her day-to-day duties of running a boarding house without a care until Stuart, an old beau of hers, rents a room. Although Lillie enjoys the bit of excitement of having Stuart around, she has no idea he’s intent on robbing a nearby bank. A comedy of errors ensues when Stuart and his partner in crime wind up at a graduation ceremony at a police academy. This weekend marks the last chance to catch the production before it’s locked up for good.

“Monty Python’s Spamalot” at Newnan Theatre

Newnan Community Theatre Company holds the distinction of being the first non-touring production in Georgia of this Tony-winning musical comedy, so fans may want to see it while they can. Python lovers will recognize scenes and lines from the classic cult film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the show’s inspiration. King Arthur and his knights dispense jokes and gags amid showgirls, murderous bunnies and flying cows. Heifers aren’t the only things getting tossed about. Watch out for mature humor, too.

8 p.m. March 22-23; 3 p.m. March 24. $8-$14. Newnan Theatre, 24 First Ave., Newnan. 770-683-6282, http://newnantheatre.org.
