COLBERT COUNTY-The Colbert County Tourism has a March Calendar choked full of fun and educational events for March.  Check it out there is something for every coming up in March:

February 29-March 3, 2024 – COMPANY: A Musical Comedy, The Ritz Theatre – 111 W 3rd St, Sheffield. Join us at the Ritz Theatre in Sheffield on Feb 29 at 7:30 PM, March 1 at 7:30 PM, March 2 at 7:30 PM, and March 3 at 2 PM for Company: A Musical Comedy. On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Throughout a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends – “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. Company features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of Stephen Sondheim’s best-known songs. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid yet real characters, meaning impressive technical aspects aren’t necessary to convey the story. It can be told as effectively with a cavalcade of automated set pieces as it can with a chair or two. Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in at least one of the characters onstage. Information/tickets: 256-383-0533 or.tennesseevalleyarts.org.
