Four Funny Females
Saturday | 8-9:30 p.m. | McKinney Performing Arts Center | $22
The Four Funny Females are back for a new season at the McKinney Performing Arts Center.

Men are, of course, welcome too. Rated PG-13 for adult innuendo and observational comedy. General admission tickets are available online.

My Perspective: Photography by James Mason
Friday-Saturday | 6-9 p.m. | The Cove, 402 N. Tennessee
“I often see spectacular figures and patterns in clouds and water that resemble things we are familiar with just as most of us do. However, sometimes it’s the colors and the intensity of the clouds and the water that captivates the eyes and the mind. These things have an indelible effect on me when I photograph. There is a deliberate place and time for every one of us. I’m truly grateful that mine is presenting itself daily. This is my perspective. Enjoy!” - James Mason
