Here are a few of the things going on in the South Logan County and surrounding area in the coming days.
The Fort Smith Little Theatre will conclude its run of Sense and Sensibility with 7:30 performances on Feb. 15-18.
An adaptation of Jane Austen’s much-loved novel that revolves around love and heartbreak. Set in England in the late 1700s, this work of romantic fiction follows the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. When their once-wealthy family is thrust into sudden destitution, they move to a meager cottage on a distant relative’s property and are forced to seek financial security through marriage.

Heartbreak In Peanuts
Love is everywhere in Peanuts-Charlie Brown loves the Little Red-Haired Girl, Lucy adores Schroeder, Sally pursues Linus-but sadly these sentiments are rarely returned.
Experience the joys and sorrows of unrequited love Peanuts-style in the traveling exhibition, Heartbreak in Peanuts. Join the Peanuts characters as they continually return to their hopeless quests for love, undaunted by defeat.
Heartbreak in Peanuts, which runs Feb. 15-April 16, at the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum in Fort Smith, features 50 high quality digital reproductions of original Peanuts comic strips which focus on narratives of lost love. These one-sided love stories include Sally and her “Sweet Babboo,” Snoopy left standing at the altar, Lucy throwing Schroeder’s piano in the sewer, and Charlie Brown’s mission to meet the Little Red-Haired Girl.
Visitors can also practice the lost art of letter writing by making their own valentine to send to Charlie Brown or practice penning a love poem in our special Peanuts Love Letter Writing Room. Valentines and letters left in the Peanuts mailbox will be displayed in the gallery.
Heartbreak in Peanuts is organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, California.
