BIGFOOT IS BACK IN FSCC CHRISTMAS PLAY

 

 

Much to the delight of children young and old, Bigfoot returns to the stage at Fort Scott Community College during the theatre department’s presentation of “Santa ‘Claws’ is Coming to Town,” an original children’s play by Allen Twitchell, theater instructor.

 

Performance of the 25-minute play is set for 7 p.m. Friday in the Danny and Willa Ellis Family Fine Arts Center on the FSCC campus. Admission is free.

 

“The play is actually a prequel to last year’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is Bigfoot’s Teeth,” Twitchell said. “This time around, Bigfoot is enlisted by his young friends to help save Christmas from the dreaded Doctor Virus. Of course, there is a chase scene, a couple of slow-witted henchmen, a few holiday songs, and a sweet treat, courtesy of Walmart of Fort Scott, for everyone at the end.”

 

The cast features Isabella Loyd, a freshman from Fort Scott, as Bigfoot; Jazmin Havens, a freshman from Pittsburg, as Ben; Annabelle Moore, a freshman from Lyndon, as Grace; Abby Sweat, a freshman from Pleasanton, as Jordan; Colton Hofer, a sophomore from Fort Scott, as the Newscaster; Kaleb Morrow, a sophomore from Fort Scott, as Doctor Virus; Anthony Oneri, a freshman from Gardner, as Thug 1; Connor Chiarelli, a freshman from Belton, Mo., as Thug 2; Kassie Fugate-Cate, FSCC’s Director of Strategic Communications and Student Activities, as Mrs. Claus; and a guest appearance by Santa Claus himself.

 

Also assisting with the production are Michael Woodward, a sophomore from Fulton, and Phoenix Burk, a freshman from Pittsburg.

Smallville Crossfit Reopens Today, Dec. 2

After a hiatus finishing up the new facility at 1905 Judson, Smallville Crossfit opens today for classes.

“Our first classes will be held here Monday,” owner Aaron Watts said on Nov. 29. His wife, Lindsey is his partner in the fitness business.

The reconfigured facility, once Fort Scott Lumber, is just off West 19th Street in the southern part of the city. They were formerly in a downtown location but outgrew the space.

Smallville Crossfit has 130 members, Aaron said.

They now have about 60 percent more space to accommodate those members, Aaron said.

“We now have three large heated rooms for classes, as opposed to two large and an auxiliary room,” he said.

Smallville Crossfit provides regular Crossfit classes, a “sweat class” and a pre-teen class for kids eight to 12 years old, Aaron said.

The Watts are going to add some new classes, a dance fitness class and strength and conditioning classes, in the future.

“We are going to get through a couple of months to determine new equipment that might be needed,” Aaron said.

New showers and bathrooms have been added to the building and Aaron was putting the mat floor down on Friday, while Lindsey was cleaning the walls in one of the new classrooms, with a little help from family and friends.

Smallville Crossfit classes are Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 7:15 a.m., 8 a.m. 11:15 a.m., the 4 p.m. pre-teen class to the last class at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday classes are at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Saturday there is an open gym which starts at 9 a.m.

For more information contact Lindsey at 620-619-9602 or Aaron at 620-719-7554.

A grand opening at the new facility will be after the first of the year.
