Putting the Oh! in Poetry

The Acadiana Center for the Arts will kick off the 2009 – 2010 Family Performance series on Wednesday, November 18 with a performance by author, poet, performer and educator Allan Wolf. Allan possesses the edgy intensity of a slam poet, the intellectual sensibility of an academic poet, the theatrical showmanship of an actor, and the aw-shucks ease of an Appalachian storyteller. He performs poetry from memory where one moment he’ll whisper a heart-felt story in verse, then he’ll transform himself into a hungry Tyrannosaur driving a Volkswagen. He’ll rattle off a hip-hop piece and segue into a quiet sonnet. This year’s series will feature six great shows with a range of performers including a puppeteer, musicians, storytellers and more.

All shows will take place at the Acadiana Center for the Arts on 101 W. Vermilion St. from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tickets are $3 for children 12 and under and $5 for adults. For more information or tickets call 337.233.7060 or email or visit
