Ruston Community Theatre will present “Anybody Out There?” with special arrangements from Dramatists Play Service. The play is sponsored by Northwood Medical Center and Dr. Ben Grigsby and will be held March 7-10 at the Dixie Center for the Performing Arts.
The play is written by John Patrick and will be directed by Billy Chandler. Satish Bharadvaj will assist as stage manager and Don Mitchell will be responsible for lighting.

At the young age of 80 years old there is one thing that still holds true for Ruston resident Fred Beavers — fiddling.
Learning to play at the age of 13 from his father, grandfathers and great uncles, Fred picked up a hobby that would fall to the wayside at times and yet still come back into his life.
Originally from Homer, Fred said by the time he was 17 he thought he was “really good stuff.”
