What’s Happening at Goodwood

Tallahassee Hispanic Theater

August 6th & 7th
Show starts at 7:30 PM

The Fourth Annual Micro Theater Festival will present a series of 15 to 20-minute plays written by Hispanic playwrights, performed in English. Some of these plays will be presented in English for the first time, and one of them is an adaptation of a Mexican short story by a local writer. And a fantastic group of directors and actors will make this festival a well-deserved back to the stage event.

This year the festival will be featuring live music by local musicians Panayotis (Paddy) League, who will be performing Brazilian popular music, bossa nova and samba, and Charles Santiago who will be performing Hispanic guitar music.

The audience will have the opportunity to enjoy drinks and Hispanic food provided by Tally Arepas (available for purchase) before and throughout the event.

Following the premise of bringing short stage performances up close to the audience, the festival will take place at the Carriage House on the historic grounds of the Goodwood Museum and Gardens, where the audience will be able to enjoy the setting, music, food, and performances (presented all in the same open space) while moving freely around the space and mingling with others.

Virtual Goodwood’s Got Game Nights!

Wednesday | August 11th | 4:30-5:30 PM

Just because we have to social distance, does not mean we have to give up socializing!  This is an opportunity to create memories through laughter and celebrate new traditions with your loved ones. Goodwood’s Got Game night is back this November, and while not all games can be played virtually, there are quite a few for number-loving and word-loving gamers that can be modified to provide some community interaction and downright virtual fun.

Test your cognitive health by exercising those brain cells with these quick-thinking games and puzzles. See if you can remember the old days by recalling popular bands of the decades or historic events, figure out movies from emojis or famous people by their silhouettes, or unscramble words you would find on a grocery list. Games will be designed to wake up and use all the parts of the mind, while also boosting our brain health through social interaction.  Please register to receive details and the Zoom program link.

This virtual program is supported by the Knight Foundation, AARP, and Leon CARES as part of Goodwood’s Pathways to Wellness Initiative.
