Two plays in the region end this weekend, but there is enough time for you to catch each of them before the curtains close on their final performances.

“Sylvia,” the hilarious off-Broadway play about a dog, Sylvia, and the couple who adopts her, has its final performances at Warner Robins Little Theatre tonight and Saturday at 8 p.m.

Nominated for a Tony Award for best play, “Deathtrap,” which holds the distinction as the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway, is being performed tonight and Saturday at Perry Players Community Theatre. The shows begin at 7:30 p.m.

Influencing The Brand

The Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority has launched a series of millennial outreach initiatives targeted at engaging a new generation of young thought leaders in economic development. Toward that end, the authority is conducting a design-a-logo contest for the signature initiatives and related events under the theme “reImagine Macon-Bibb.”

In a statement about the contest, Brittany Childs, MBCIA administrative coordinator and project lead, said, “The Industrial Authority is all about innovation so we wanted to engage millennial artists to help us brand this series of events. The logo will help to ignite creativity and begin new conversations about what we believe our future can and should be for Macon-Bibb.”

The logo design contest, which runs through Sept. 30, is open to anyone 18 or older. Contest rules and guidelines are posted at mbcia.com.
