Alice is pressured to try a crumpet during tea, which could land her in trouble. The scene was part of dress rehearsal for Bardstown High School’s production of “Alice in Zombieland” by Craig Sodaro. The production consists of 24 cast and crew and features Alice, who returns to Wonderland only to find it has become overrun by zombies. The students will perform Saturday at 7 p.m. in the BHS auditorium. Admission is free but a $1-$3 donation is encouraged.

The 70th annual Bourbon Open tournament began this week, and after a full day of golf, Friday night was packed with social events.
From bourbon tasting to karaoke and dancing to daily prizes for the golfers, there was a wide array of activities to be enjoyed. Many participants were highly enthusiastic concerning the festivities provided throughout the evening. Despite the high temperatures and humidity, there was a sizeable crowd in attendance.
For nearly the first 50 years of the Bourbon Open, it was a man’s world.
With a full field on a yearly basis and the number of spots available restricted by the nine-hole golf course at My Old Kentucky Home, the female golfers were relegated to being behind the scenes, providing assistance with the scoring, helping with the social activities, and taking a lead role in the production of the Bourbon Open program.
