What's happening in Cookeville
The No. 1 complaint from most people on campus is, "There's nothing to do here!" But that's simply not true. While Cookeville isn't a huge metropolis, the community still strives to implement new happenings of all kinds. Here are a few things you can enjoy this weekend.
'Cabaret'- This exciting musical, opened Thursday at the Backdoor Playhouse and is full of dance and pizzazz. The show runs at 8 p.m. Nov. 9, 10, 12, 13, 16 and 17, with a late show at 10 p.m. Nov. 15 and a 2 p.m. matinee Nov. 17. Tech students get in free with their Student ID. This production is Student Directed by Adam Combs, with Music Direction by Mendy Richards, and features Choreography by Stage One Dance studio owner Jennifer Dotson-Creter This production contains adult situations and language that may be objectionable to some audiences.
The ART Prowl - The ART Prowl is Cookeville's annual two day, free, mostly walkable tour through the West Side. Happening today and tomorrow, the historic West Side and its shops will be hosting activities, artists and cool demonstrations of all kinds.

'Annie' - Also in Cookeville's theatre community, the Cookeville Children's Theatre will present "Annie," the timeless classic of the little orphan who finds a home with millionaire Oliver Warbucks. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17 with a 2 p.m. matinee Nov. 10, 11 and 17.
The Miss Fabulous Pageant - The second annual Miss Fabulous Pageant will take place tomorrow at the Cookeville Community Center. The Miss Fabulous Pageant was started last year by Cookeville High School student Madison Hill as a way for girls with disabilities to shine and build self-confidence. This year, 50 girls are participating in the pageant with nearly 30 male escorts. The pageant begins at 10 a.m. Participants are asked to donate supplies for the Cookeville Animal Shelter, and those who are attending are asked to pay $5. The money generated will go to non-profit organizations in Middle Tennessee.
