  2. Georgia Ensemble Theatre presents Homers

    February 28, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM @ Roswell Cultural Arts Center

    In this story where fan-dom and family intersect, we meet Leigh Elder, a female sportswriter for a major metro Atlanta newspaper. She’s a homer: love and loyalty to the Braves, the Hawks, and the Falcons. When a dream job falls into her lap and promises to take her to the big-time of L.A., she is thrilled. The only thing that stands in the way is her biggest fan: her father. Can a homer ever really leave home? Loyalty and love can be tough in the big leagues!
