Touch of Life Chiropractic Opens A New State of the Art 
Wellness Center in the 
Camp Creek Marketplace

Relocating their practice of four years, Dr. Patrice and Bryson Thompson decided that it was time that South Fulton had a place of their own where everyone could come to rally around the principles of holistic healthcare.  Focusing on the function of the body and helping individuals improve the quality of their lives, Touch of Life Family Chiropractic moves to surpass just looking at aches, pains, and symptoms into understanding how your body is actually working.

The Thompson Family looks to continue to be a vital part of the #healthysouthfulton community.  Be on the lookout for them at the various events, fairs, and festivals throughout South Fulton and the city of Atlanta.  For more information on Touch of Life Family Chiropractic, please visit TouchOfLifeChiro.com.

Serenbe Playhouse’s “Cabaret” 
Stars Brian Clowdus & Broadway’s Molly Tynes

Serenbe Playhouse, recipient of the prestigious American Theatre Wing grant and recently honored with the most Suzi Bass Awards for a musical (“Miss Saigon”) in Atlanta, was pleased to present “Cabaret,” by Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb. Directed by Brian Clowdus, the show opened August 3 and ran through August 27. “Cabaret” was produced at the Open Air Room in Serenbe.

ABOUT “CABARET”

Inspired by Christopher Isherwood’s triumphant novel, The Berlin Stories, “Cabaret” takes place in 1931 Berlin, as the Nazis begin their ominous ascent to power. The musical revolves around the vibrant and sensuous nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, where a young American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, pursues an English cabaret performer, Sally Bowles (played by Broadway’s Molly Tynes). In one of the most iconic roles of the genre, Serenbe Playhouse’s founder and Artistic Director Brian Clowdus played the Kit Kat Klub’s devious emcee. This racy rendition took place in our own underground Kit Kat Klub—where not just anyone could go—only those with the required password were admitted!

ABOUT THE CAST

Playhouse favorites Deborah Bowman (“A Streetcar Named Desire”) and Lee Osorio (“Macbeth”) took on Fräulein Kost and Clifford Bradshaw, respectively. Rounding out the leading players were Heidi Cline McKerley as Fräulein Schneider, Robert Wayne as Herr Shultz, and Edward McCrearry as Ernst Ludwig. The Kit Kat Klub was brought to life by the vibrant dancers: Lily Dickinson, Brian Jordan, Imani Joseph, Taryn McFarthing, Shannon Murphy, Hayley Platt and Terrence Smith. Direction was provided by Brian Clowdus, with associate direction by Ryan Oliveti. Musical direction was led by Chris Brent Davis and choreography by Bubba Carr.
