At ages 101 and 103, these resilient African-American sisters have lived through historic events, such as the Civil Rights Movement, Jim Crow laws and women's suffrage. These cultural pioneers never married, stating "we were too smart, too independent for most men" and pursued education and careers during a time when it was unheard of to do so. Their endearing stories are humorous and historical as they invite the audience into their home for an evening of memories in this touching, biographical, two-person play, starring real-life sisters Camille Metoyer Moten and Lanette Metoyer Moore.

    Five time Grammy award winning country music superstar, Wynonna Judd, will take the stage on Sunday, December 15 at the Ralston Arena. The show begins at 7:00 p.m. with doors at 6:00 p.m.

    Wynonna will perform "A Simpler Christmas" mixing classic Christmas favorites with her own holiday songs, and sprinkle in a few of her biggest hits, all backed by her band, The Big Noise.

Wynonna, who has been a staple of the country music scene for more than 30 years, sold more than 20 million albums performing with her mother Naomi as half of the legendary duo The Judds.

It's just the latest in a string of hit albums that started with her quintuple platinum 1992 solo debut, Wynonna. That set spawned four number one hits and was the best-selling country album ever by a female artist at that time. In 1994, Wynonna received the coveted Top Female Vocalist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards, and Rolling Stone called her "the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline."
