what-to-doIt’s almost time for the Weekend and Buckeye Honda has you covered with a couple of, sure-fire-sure-to-be-entertaining, events.

SNAP! Performance Productions Musical – “That Four Letter Word”  snapbanner

“That Four Letter Word” is sure to be a hit with everyone in attendance.  This Part Musical-Part Dance Crew-Part Rock Concert is a poignant tale exploring the dynamic of the ultimate four-letter word – LIFE – and the frenzy of feelings and forces that comprise it: love, hate, hope, fate, need, want, and more.

“That Four Letter Word” is showing May 9, 10 & 11 at the Lincoln Theater in Downtown Columbus.  Ticket information can be found here.

logo-that4letterSNAP! Performance Productions – a high energy singing and dancing group – was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 2003. The acronym SNAP! stands for Serving Non-profit Associations by Performing. The true purpose of this 501(c)3 non-profit organization is for members of the community who love to perform to use their talents to improve the lives of others. This is accomplished every year by a partnership with a chosen charity beneficiary.  Most recently SNAP is dedicated to helping keep the Arts accessible for Central Ohio Children by sponsoring Art programs in a Central Ohio School where the arts have been drastically cut.  SNAP! is proud to have contributed thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteer hours to our past partnerships with Recreation UnlimitedA Special Wish Foundation and St. Vincent Family Centers and they look forward to continuing to contribute to the people in this fine city.
