In Birmingham, the event will be broadcast at the Patton Creek 15 and Trussville Stadium 16 theaters.

"If you build it, he will come." With these words, Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is inspired by a voice he can't ignore to pursue a dream he can hardly believe. Supported by his wife Annie (Amy Madigan), Ray begins the quest by turning his ordinary cornfield into a place where dreams can come true. Along the way he meets reclusive activist Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), the mysterious "Doc" Graham (Burt Lancaster) and even the legendary "Shoeless Joe" Jackson (Ray Liotta). A heartwarming experience that has moved critics and audiences like no other film of this generation, Field of Dreams is a glowing tribute to all who dare to dream.

This special two-day event includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

Crochet Circle - Counterpoint Throw-This is a relaxing 2 or 3 hour informal class where we all sit around the table or on the couch and talk, listen and learn how to make this beautiful blanket. You will make your blanket square by square every session until it's done. You can continue at your own home if you want or just save it for 'circle' time. I would suggest saving your first 10 squares for Circle time as it can be a little confusing and you don't wont to have to rip it out and start over but it's your choice! There is no time frame for completion! Must have 2 per class. Bring your own yarn and crochet hooks. I would love to help with your yarn and hook choices if needed. First session - $35. The following 3 sessions - $15 then after that $10 per session. Wine, Tea  and light snacks will be available. We will be meeting on Tue. and sometime Thurs. nights beginning at 6 PM. Get in touch for exact dates.@ http://AndreaLucasStudio.Art   Wine and light snacks will be served!

No prior dance experience is required! Introduction to Flamenco is the ideal way to start dancing flamenco. Long time flamenco dancer Victoria will teach 1 hour classes introducing basic flamenco for students without prior dance experience. Classes will focus on strong footwork, upper body coordination, understanding flamenco music and compás (rhythmic/melodic patterns), and proper posture. We will begin to develop the muscle strength and dance skills necessary for flamenco dance.

The latter part of class will introduce the very popular Sevillanas. Prepare for the Feria! This regional dance of Seville is performed in schools, parties, weddings, bars, and of course the annual Spring Fair, the Feria. Danced in four short sections called coplas, Sevillanas are known for their charismatic, lively gracefulness. Each copla ends with a sudden stop as dancers strike a pose, inspiring the audience to shout ¡Olé! Beginners will learn basic steps and arm movements to the First Copla.

Stop by Barrister's Tavern in Hoover every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:00pm (sharp!) and catch some laughs at the end of your work day! This FREE show features both veteran and rising stand-up comics as they work out new material and perfect their craft. The show is just an hour, so you can catch our show and still have time to meet up with friends, see a movie, head out for dinner, or whatever else you're up to on a Tuesday night!

THINGS TO KNOW:
* FREE ADMISSION! (But buy something. Barrister's lets us perform because they're in the tavern business! Keep the show going!)

* LOCATION: Barrister's Tavern is at the corner of Montgomery Hwy + Lorna Road, set back from the street. Look for the green awning next to Waffle House - 1535 Montgomery Hwy, Hoover, AL 35216. Take EXIT 252 off I-65, the US-31/Montgomery Hwy exit.

* This is NOT a family friendly show; age 21+. We don't have language or content restrictions. This is Grown Up Comedy for grown ups.

* NOTE FOR COMICS. There are approximately 10-12 slots (up to 5-minutes each) per week. Sign-ups are 6:45-7pm, choose your slot. Once the show starts, your name goes on a "standby" list, and if we have time we'll fit you in before the show ends at 8pm. (There's almost always enough room for everyone!). If you are a travelling/professional comic in town for a gig and would like to work out a longer set, email us - we can usually accommodate you. If you are driving more than 60-minutes, you can email (grownupcomedyal@gmail.com) a request to sign up in advance to secure a slot, or message us via Facebook the day of show. Never tried comedy before? Give it a shot! This is a very friendly and supportive bunch for newbies.

Gerald Kelly was born in the Bronx, New York; the eldest of four and raised by a single mom. As a youngster, his point of view about life made him a class favorite. Gerald would often captivate the students and teachers by telling stories, spontaneously poking fun at anyone who dared to challenge his comic ability. He even impersonated teachers’ voices on the P.A. “This is a fire drill!!” All hell would break loose and he’d disappear into the school crowd without getting caught. Actually, he would be the first to stand near his teacher outside the school, “Are they going to send us home? Are we going to be safe?” One of his teachers looked down at him one day and said, “Young man, you should be a comedian.”

From March through June, Dr. Dudney is whitening teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in Alabama and around the world. 100% of the teeth whitening proceeds will go to children’s charities. Fifty percent of the donations will go to local charity “Smile A Mile” that serves the children of Alabama battling cancer. The remaining balance goes to “Smiles for Life Foundation” to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the world. When you pay for your discounted teeth whitening you’ll write a check directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation, not to the dental practice.

Dr. Dudney is a member of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their local communities through charitable work. Since 1998, The Smiles for Life Foundation has raised over $40 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities.

Dr Dudney has had a patient-center private practice in Alabaster since 1982 as a general dentist with focus on cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Dudney teaches hands on programs and has presented workshops and lectures at dental meetings and conferences around the world. In addition, he has authored several articles on aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Now is the time to schedule your teeth whitening for a good cause!

In Birmingham, the event will be broadcast at the Patton Creek 15 and Trussville Stadium 16 theaters.

"If you build it, he will come." With these words, Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is inspired by a voice he can't ignore to pursue a dream he can hardly believe. Supported by his wife Annie (Amy Madigan), Ray begins the quest by turning his ordinary cornfield into a place where dreams can come true. Along the way he meets reclusive activist Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), the mysterious "Doc" Graham (Burt Lancaster) and even the legendary "Shoeless Joe" Jackson (Ray Liotta). A heartwarming experience that has moved critics and audiences like no other film of this generation, Field of Dreams is a glowing tribute to all who dare to dream.

This special two-day event includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

Crochet Circle - Counterpoint Throw-This is a relaxing 2 or 3 hour informal class where we all sit around the table or on the couch and talk, listen and learn how to make this beautiful blanket. You will make your blanket square by square every session until it's done. You can continue at your own home if you want or just save it for 'circle' time. I would suggest saving your first 10 squares for Circle time as it can be a little confusing and you don't wont to have to rip it out and start over but it's your choice! There is no time frame for completion! Must have 2 per class. Bring your own yarn and crochet hooks. I would love to help with your yarn and hook choices if needed. First session - $35. The following 3 sessions - $15 then after that $10 per session. Wine, Tea  and light snacks will be available. We will be meeting on Tue. and sometime Thurs. nights beginning at 6 PM. Get in touch for exact dates.@ http://AndreaLucasStudio.Art   Wine and light snacks will be served!

No prior dance experience is required! Introduction to Flamenco is the ideal way to start dancing flamenco. Long time flamenco dancer Victoria will teach 1 hour classes introducing basic flamenco for students without prior dance experience. Classes will focus on strong footwork, upper body coordination, understanding flamenco music and compás (rhythmic/melodic patterns), and proper posture. We will begin to develop the muscle strength and dance skills necessary for flamenco dance.

The latter part of class will introduce the very popular Sevillanas. Prepare for the Feria! This regional dance of Seville is performed in schools, parties, weddings, bars, and of course the annual Spring Fair, the Feria. Danced in four short sections called coplas, Sevillanas are known for their charismatic, lively gracefulness. Each copla ends with a sudden stop as dancers strike a pose, inspiring the audience to shout ¡Olé! Beginners will learn basic steps and arm movements to the First Copla.

Stop by Barrister's Tavern in Hoover every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:00pm (sharp!) and catch some laughs at the end of your work day! This FREE show features both veteran and rising stand-up comics as they work out new material and perfect their craft. The show is just an hour, so you can catch our show and still have time to meet up with friends, see a movie, head out for dinner, or whatever else you're up to on a Tuesday night!

THINGS TO KNOW:
* FREE ADMISSION! (But buy something. Barrister's lets us perform because they're in the tavern business! Keep the show going!)

* LOCATION: Barrister's Tavern is at the corner of Montgomery Hwy + Lorna Road, set back from the street. Look for the green awning next to Waffle House - 1535 Montgomery Hwy, Hoover, AL 35216. Take EXIT 252 off I-65, the US-31/Montgomery Hwy exit.

* This is NOT a family friendly show; age 21+. We don't have language or content restrictions. This is Grown Up Comedy for grown ups.

* NOTE FOR COMICS. There are approximately 10-12 slots (up to 5-minutes each) per week. Sign-ups are 6:45-7pm, choose your slot. Once the show starts, your name goes on a "standby" list, and if we have time we'll fit you in before the show ends at 8pm. (There's almost always enough room for everyone!). If you are a travelling/professional comic in town for a gig and would like to work out a longer set, email us - we can usually accommodate you. If you are driving more than 60-minutes, you can email (grownupcomedyal@gmail.com) a request to sign up in advance to secure a slot, or message us via Facebook the day of show. Never tried comedy before? Give it a shot! This is a very friendly and supportive bunch for newbies.

Gerald Kelly was born in the Bronx, New York; the eldest of four and raised by a single mom. As a youngster, his point of view about life made him a class favorite. Gerald would often captivate the students and teachers by telling stories, spontaneously poking fun at anyone who dared to challenge his comic ability. He even impersonated teachers’ voices on the P.A. “This is a fire drill!!” All hell would break loose and he’d disappear into the school crowd without getting caught. Actually, he would be the first to stand near his teacher outside the school, “Are they going to send us home? Are we going to be safe?” One of his teachers looked down at him one day and said, “Young man, you should be a comedian.”

From March through June, Dr. Dudney is whitening teeth to raise money for seriously ill, disabled, and underprivileged children in Alabama and around the world. 100% of the teeth whitening proceeds will go to children’s charities. Fifty percent of the donations will go to local charity “Smile A Mile” that serves the children of Alabama battling cancer. The remaining balance goes to “Smiles for Life Foundation” to be distributed to worthy and approved children’s charities across the world. When you pay for your discounted teeth whitening you’ll write a check directly to the Smiles for Life Foundation, not to the dental practice.

Dr. Dudney is a member of the Crown Council, an alliance of leading-edge dental teams that are passionately committed to promoting oral health, fighting oral cancer and serving their local communities through charitable work. Since 1998, The Smiles for Life Foundation has raised over $40 million, benefiting hundreds of children’s charities.

Dr Dudney has had a patient-center private practice in Alabaster since 1982 as a general dentist with focus on cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Dudney teaches hands on programs and has presented workshops and lectures at dental meetings and conferences around the world. In addition, he has authored several articles on aesthetic and restorative dentistry. Now is the time to schedule your teeth whitening for a good cause!
