Horizon Theatre's RIGHT ON to Run 7/18-8/31
Putting the sizzle in the summer at Horizon is the world premiere of Darren Canady's Right On, a soul-filled story with laughter, tears and a funky beat.

Right On runs July 18 - August 31, 2014. Performances are Wednesday through Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 3 PM and 8:30 PM, and Sunday at 5 PM. Tickets are $20-$30. Tickets and information are available at horizontheatre.com or 404.584.7450.
