On the Scene


The Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) once again hosted the Christmas in the Sky theme announcement party on March 17. After much speculation and fanfare, SRAC Executive Director Pam Atchison revealed that this year’s Christmas in the Sky theme is “Kiss a Frog: An Evening of Tall Tales, Fairy Tales and Cocktails.” The last time Christmas in the Sky was held was in 2018, as the event in 2020 could not happen due to Covid. This year’s event is on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022. — Mark Crawford
