Music for Dani


Hospice of the Bluegrass music therapist Dale Lewis sang to, and with, Dani Pruitt, Lexington, a 5-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy who is part of a special Hospice program that helps chronically ill children.

It is unique to Kentucky and was started in honor of Rick Pitino’s son, Daniel. In this video, Dani’s mother, Beth, explains the benefit of music therapy during one of Lewis’ visits to Dani.

Studio Players present Dearly Beloved


Think your late spring wedding is getting kind of nutty? The Futrelle sisters might make you feel a whole lot better about your circumstances. Estranged sister Honey Raye is back stirring up old tensions, Twink is trying to turn the reception into a pig roast, and Frankie is juggling emotional crises that quickly multiply.

And we haven’t mentioned that Twink is trying to drag her drunk boyfriend to the nuptials because she thinks that’s the key to getting him to pop the question, the mother of the groom is trying to sabotage the ceremony and the bride and groom are MIA.

It could only happen in Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten’s fictional Fayro, Texas. Studio Players present the trio’s Dearly Beloved May 21-June 7 at the Carriage House Theatre on W. Bell Court., directed by Tonda-Leah Fields.
