The Inlaws & The Outlaws, formerly known as The Overby Family Band, are appearing at the Glenn Massay Theater on Friday night.
The newest venue in the Mat-Su Valley already has an impressive lineup of events planned for the fall and winter, giving Valley residents an exciting new place to enjoy concerts, film festivals, musicals and much more.
The 520-seat Glenn Massay Theater (www.glennmassaytheater.com) on the campus of Mat-Su College opened earlier this spring, and has already become a favorite among locals. The theater is completely state-of-the-art, from the color-changing LED lighting system to the industry-leading acoustics. The theater is capable of hosting events like conferences, lectures and recitals, as well as community events.
The lineup the staff has assembled this fall is amazing. Things get off to a fishy start this Thursday, with the International Fly Fishing Film Festival, featuring short and feature-length films produced by professional filmmakers from around the world, focusing on the passion, lifestyle and culture of fly fishing.
The IF4 event is one of three this weekend at the theater, and on Friday and Saturday, it will have a more local twist. On Friday night, The Inlaws and the Outlaws perform on stage - this group of talented local musicians used to be known as the Overby Family Band, and their bluegrass and down-home style captivates the crowd.
On Saturday, local filmmaker Chad Carpenter and his cast of local actors are screening "Moose: The Movie" at the Glenn Massay Theater. The independent movie was filmed in Wasilla and around the Mat-Su Valley, and has been screened around the state.
The theater is filled with events almost every weekend this fall and winter, with musicians like John Sebastian and Chris Smither appearing, as well as "Chicago: The Musical."
