In addition to the annual Magazine Homecoming Saturday, here are a few of the things going on in, or a short distance from South Logan County in the coming days.
Fox on the Fairway
The Fort Smith Little Theatre’s production of the Ken Ludwig play the Fox on the Fairway will continue through June 6 though 9 at 7:30 p.m. nightly at the Theatre, located at 401 North 6th Street in Fort Smith.
Mistaken identities and over-the-top romantic shenanigans are part of this mad-cap adventure set at a stuff country club. You don’t have to love gold to love this furiously paced comedy about how far arch rivals will go to win the annual inter-club tournament.

Grimm Brothers’ Twisted Tales

Annie, Get Your Gun, The Musical
The Young Actor’s Guild will present Annie Get Your Gun, the Musical on June 8-10 at Fort Smith Northside High School. The June 8 show is at 7 p.m., three will be performances at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on June 9, and at 2 p.m. on June 10.
Rough-and-tumble Annie Oakley is the best shot around. A backwoods gal, Annie uses her skill to support her family by selling the game she hunts. When she’s discovered by Buffalo Bill and persuaded to join his Wild West Show, Annie is plucked from obscurity and becomes the toast of Europe. Annie meets her match in Frank Butler, Buffalo Bill’s leading man and star marksman. She falls head over heels for Frank, but soon eclipses him as the main attraction in the show.
Tickets: $10 for kids 12 and under, $15 for 13 and older. Box office opens one hour prior to showtime and the theatre opens 30 minutes prior to showtime.

The show will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. on Friday, June 8, at 4701 Windsor Drive in Fort Smith.
