Pledge Show Highlights

Music: We've got the Beat
Classic performances and a wide variety of great music are featured during our March Membership Drive. The line-up includes artists like Celtic Thunder Voyage (Mar. 7, 10, 11, 13), Joe Bonamassa: Beacon Theater – Live from New York (Mar 3, 12), and Peter, Paul and Mary 25th Anniversary Concert (Mar. 3, 6, 8, 18). Sit back, listen and let the music flow through you.

Musical Theater: A Classic
WCTE will mark the 25th anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera by showing the fully staged production from the wonderful Royal Albert Hall (Mar. 4, 14).

Documentary: Alone in the Wilderness
Dick Proenneke retired at age 50 in 1967 and decided to build his own cabin on the shore of Twin Lakes. The first summer he scouted for the best cabin site, and cut and peeled the logs he would need for his cabin. Dick Proenneke returned the next summer to  finish the cabin where he lived for over 30 years. Dick filmed his adventures, and Bob Swerer later turned the film into a video so we can all watch this amazing man build his cabin by hand.

Health: Stretch your Mind and Body
When it comes to arthritis and joint pain, look no further than expert yoga Peggy Cappy’s Easy Yoga for Easy Pain (Mar. 11, 13). If you’re wanting to look and feel younger, or having trouble thinking clearly, give your brain a workout with Use Your Brain to Change Your Age with Dr. Daniel Amen (Mar. 4, 11, 18), and The Distracted Mind with Dr. Adam Gazzaley (Mar. 11).

Self-Help: Five Steps to Easy Living
Using light humor, Dr. Wayne Dyer inspires you to look into your thoughts and attract your deepest desires. He outlines how you can come up with new thought patterns while remaining productive in the program Dr. Wayne Dyer: Wishes Fulfilled (March 4, 5, 9).

TSSAA: March Basketball Mania
You can watch your favorite high school teams go head to head in the TSSAA Basketball State Tournament in Nashville and Murfreesboro. Catch the action of the games on March 3, 10, and 17.
