Ron Sharpe & Barbra Russell first met when they were playing the young romantic leads of Marius and Cosette in “Les Miserables.” The story they often tell is that after being married on stage hundreds of times, they decided to do it for real. Yes, Broadway brought this wonderfully talented couple together. And they are still married to Broadway – and all of the wonderful songs from the big Broadway musicals of the past and present. 

In Married to Broadway, Ron and Barbra (together with one or two of their fabulous and equally talented Broadway leading actors and actresses) share their love affair with the great music of the Great White Way, performing the big showstopping numbers that are audience favorites around the world — from Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Evita, and West Side Story, to Carousel, Fiddler on the Roof, and – of course – Les Miz.

www.fws.gov/refuge/Great_Dismal_Swamp

The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge holds its annual Birding Festival during the height of the spring Neotropical songbird migration, when the greatest diversity of species are on the fly. Bird lovers delight in catching a glimpse of the Swainson's Warbler and the Wayne's Warbler (a race of the Black-throated Green Warbler), two of the most secretive and least observed of all North American birds. Lucky visitors will most likely catch a "peep" of the White-throated Sparrow, the graceful Great Egret and even the regal Bald Eagle. Other birds of interest in the area include the Wood Duck, Barred Owl, Pileated Woodpecker and Prothonotary Warbler.

The festival is part of International Migratory Bird Day, which celebrates the incredible journeys of migratory birds between breeding grounds in North America and their wintering grounds in Mexico, Central and South America.

The FREE annual Great Dismal Swamp Birding Festival is open to the public and offers family-fun activities, such as guided bird walks, owl prowls, a bird banding station, guided nature walks, late day bird walks, canoe birding, nature crafts, bus tours and a motorized boat tour on Lake Drummond.

Presentations and workshops include:
• A Historical Look at the Great Dismal Swamp
• Birding Basics Workshop & Field Session
• Return of the Cockaded Woodpecker to the Great Dismal Swamp
• Nature Photography Workshop & Field Session
• Beyond the Bird Feeder: How to Attract Birds by Creating a Habitat at Home
