  • ‘Cotton Club’ the new hot spot

    At the entrance to The Cotton Club, Old Hostess (Greta Kremer) stands by to receive the nightly guests, while gangsters Speak Easy (Jonah Trillana) and Peg-leg Bates (C.J. Johnson) lean in to wait for their boss, Big Frenchy, to enter and hustle up some dough for their bootleg hooch. The joint really starts jumping when the band starts tootin’ for the YS Kids Playhouse production of The Cotton Club, begining tonight, Thursday, July 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the college amphitheater. The show runs this weekend and next. (Photo by Lauren Heaton)
