FloydFest “Wild” 18 is in the books. The past weekend’s music and outdoor festival included complete sellouts on Friday and Saturday. John McBroom is the Chief Financial Officer for Across the Way Productions. The weather turned out to be a non-factor. McBroom also played on stage with his group “Blue Mule” – the 15th year they’ve performed at FloydFest.

Star City Playhouse in Vinton is calling its new regular series of staged play readings “Munch-time” – and it debuts at the Vinton theater on South Pollard Street tomorrow at noon. Star City co-founder Karon Sue Semones Ferguson says Munchtime is patterned after the brown-bag Centerpieces series that Mill Mountain Theatre has staged at the lunch hour. Excerpts from her play Kin Folks, adapted from a series of short stories, will be read by actors at tomorrow’s free Munchtime. Ferguson hopes those that attend the half hour event will want to come back and see some of Star City’s regular productions – including “Cactus Flower” starting August 10th.
