Hogs for the Cause 2014 Music Lineup Friday, March 28, 2014:
The purpose of Hogs For The Cause is to provide aid and relief of those variable expenses and economic burdens which families face while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer. Hogs For The Cause will operate as the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States.
While money devoted to pediatric cancer research is dwindling, there is an even bigger void in the periphery and variable expenses associated with cancer treatment. We will fill this void. Hogs For The Cause will take care of the small things, so families can worry about the big thing.
Join your fellow fishermen for an informal City Park Bass Rodeo pre-rodeo mixer at DBA on Frenchmen Street from 5 to 7pm on March 28.
Tim Zissis, who holds the City Park bass record (a very funny, loquacious guy) will be interviewed live on stage and will give tips on where and how to win the next morning's rodeo (March 29). He will discuss his own special bait, the "Who Dat Frog."
Fish-oriented drink specials, plus music by Lil Current Vocal Club.
The City Park Bass Rodeo is the oldest freshwater fishing contest in the entire U.S. This year, in testament to all the new life being breathed into Bayou St John, the rodeo is for the first time ever offering a "Boats on the Bayou" competition for trout, redfish, bass and more. The rodeo is nonetheless a casual affair with only a $10 entry fee.

The New Orleans/Louisiana premiere of "Zanna, Don't! (A Musical Fairy Tale)" will open at The Shadowbox Theatre, located at 2400 St. Claude Avenue-New Orleans, LA-70117, on March 14 and run March 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, and 30.

"Zanna, Don't" is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning 2003 off-Broadway musical written by Tim Acito with additional lyrics and material by Alexander Dinelaris. The show is set in a parallel magical universe where homosexuality is the norm and heterosexuality is taboo. Set in a mid-western all-American type town, the action takes place at heterophobic Heartsville High. Zanna, the school matchmaker (think Dolly Levi with more flair), brings together happy same-sex couples until the football team's handsome quarterback and the lovely captain of the Girls' Intramural Mechanical Bull-Riding Team begin to discover their feelings for each other.
In addition to receiving several 2003 Drama Desk and Outer Critic Circle award nominations, the original production of "Zanna, Don't" won the Lucille Lortel award for best choreography as well as the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York Theater Production and was voted Favorite Off-Broadway Musical in the Broadway.com Audience Awards.
Following the sold out run of the Big Easy Award nominated "Evil Dead the Musical", "Zanna Don't" will be quite a change of pace; going from the world of blood, dismemberment, and evil Candarian demons to a celebration of love and diversity! "See 'Em On Stage: A Production Company" is proud to continue its mission of bringing musicals to the New Orleans theater community that are brand new to local audiences.
"Zanna, Don't!" is produced and directed by Christopher Bentivegna. Choreography and assistant direction is provided by Lindsey Romig. Natalie True is the music director (leading a live rock band).
