    Carl Casper Custom Cars and The Louisville New Car Show

    The Carl Casper Custom Auto Show and Louisville New Car Show combine “stars and cars” with a plethora of custom and new cars and appearances by celebrities. Carl Casper is a name that is synonymous with car shows and his longest-running event, the Carl Casper Custom Car Show in Louisville, Kentucky celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2002. Of course, the tribute to Casper’s cars iss only a portion of the show. The real meat of the show consists of hundreds of fine automobiles of every description from all over the US and surrounding area. The show fills the huge Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville Kentucky and car enthusiasts can spend a full day at the show attempting to take it all in.

    The Louisville Ballet Presents La Sylphide
    La Slyphide’s human realm of a small Scottish community meets the spiritual realm of the enchanted forest.

    Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less at The Bard's Town
    Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less is a campy and fiercely comedic parody of the Star Wars Trilogy, performed by a cast of five actors playing multiple parts. As the name implies, the show is fast, frantic, and always under one hour. The show received its world premiere at The Alley Theatre in December of 2011, and has been running to rave reviews ever since. Following engagements at the 2012 Wonderfest and Fright Night/Fandom Fest science fiction conventions, Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less is now available for private bookings, events and parties! Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less will be running throughout the year at both The Alley Theatre and The Bard's Town.
