    The Bootstrap Boys including Jake Stilson, Nick Alexander, Josh McBryde, Jeff Knoll and special guest Tom Stolaski, are a country band who have developed a fresh take on the classic country sound. Their original songs might bring to mind the likes of Waylon Jennings, George Jones, or Johnny Cash. More than once The Boys have been compared to contemporary country acts such as Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapelton and other artists who have embraced the return of the country sound of the past. Based in Grand Rapids, the Bootstrap Boys have developed a unique sound. Their original tunes take their cues from that particular mix of country and gospel found in the small churches of rural Michigan, spiced with the redneck flavor of the small town honky tonks of the Midwest.

    The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater will present the classic story, Robin Hood!

    Who doesn’t know the story of Robin Hood and his merry men? Well, you can forget all about it. This version of Robin Hood is a hysterical, sprawling, action packed drama. Besides cleverly retelling the legend, the author has created roles that challenge and reinvent the myth. Including a wise cracking, superior swordsperson in Marian and a Robin who only by chance finds himself a hero. But true to the legend, all ends well; the Sheriff’s sleazy scheme to wed young Ellen fizzles, King John’s vicious taxes are rescinded, the Sherwood Foresters are finally legitimized, and justice descends on England’s green and pleasant land.

    The Dogwood Summer Youth Theater is directed again this summer by Chelsea Webb. Auditions were held on May 10 and 13 for interested youth ages 12 and up.

    Show dates and times are Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28, at 7:30 p.m. each evening.

    Free admission. Donations accepted at the door to support Dogwood Center programs. Main Stage. General admission seating.

    As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time with five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold, Sandi Patty is simply known as The Voice.

    Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards. She was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2004 and as an Indiana Living Legend in 2007. She has released over 30 albums, including her latest album “Everlasting” exclusively at Target Stores, through Somerset, Ltd. “Everlasting” features notable hymns and songs of worship in an intimate and acoustic setting. Her debut full length symphonic pops album “Broadway Stories”, conducted by Maestro Jack Everly, was released on October 18, 2011 to rave reviews.

    Sandi was introduced to the world with her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers. Her version of the national anthem has become synonymous with patrio

    tic celebration, including performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and ABC’s Fourth of July Special.

    While her thirty-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, Sandi has had the opportunity in more recent years to extend her career outside the genre. Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country, including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic. She also headlined the title role in sold out performances of the musical “Hello, Dolly!” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, co-starring Tony Award winner Gary Beach in January 2012.

    In addition to her prolific musical career, Sandi is also an accomplished author. For the bestseller Broken on the Back Row, Sandi received the 2006 Silver Angel Award. As an author of seven books, her other titles include Life in the Blender, Falling Forward, Layers, and her forthcoming book, The Edge of the Divine. Her down-to-earth style and sturdy common sense have endeared her to Women of Faith® audiences, with whom she has traveled with since 2005. She’s an example to all of us of the freedom that comes from learning how to move on, learning from her mistakes and letting God use her in any circumstance.

    “I am grateful for the many opportunities for God has given in my life and for how He has allowed me to spread my wings,” says Sandi. “Singing is my way to tell my story of hope, life, and love.”

    Sandi and her husband, Don, have eight children. They currently reside in Oklahoma City, OK.
