It’s been far too long since we’ve offered a Beehive “Backstage Spy,” in which we ask a cast member or two from a local show to give us a glimpse behind-the-scenes of a production. Mallory Parker and Shawn Williams kindly did the honors on a recent double-show day for the Good Company Players production of “Shenandoah” at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater. This is the last weekend for this very fine show (here’s my review), so if you’ve been meaning to see it before it closes, don’t dawdle.

If history (and intermission) teaches us one thing, it’s that card games still remain a favorite American pastime.

Even entertainers need entertainment. Double Sundays allow us to catch up on our favorite shows we miss during the week!

Just one show can be pretty exhausting — so some of us (ahem, Jonathan Wheeler) need to get a little shut eye before launching into that second performance of the day.
