Here are some of the entertainment and other options occurring in, or a short driving distance from South Logan County in the coming days.
Members of the Fort Smith Little Theatre will continue their newest production, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” at 7:30 p.m. June 12-15, at the theater, 401 N. Sixth St.
In the story, Randle (John Hall) is short on patience but long on trying to get his way. He thinks his stay in the mental ward is the easiest path, but Randle is wrong, as Nurse Ratched (Cindy Clark) rules the psych ward in a tyrant-like fashion.

Fathers Day Trolley Ride
The Fort Smith Trolley Museum wants to make Father’s Day a special day for day. On Sunday, June 16, fathers and grandfathers will ride free when accompanied by paid fares. Fares must be paid on the streetcar and you must mention this special to the operator when you board. This is a great way to thank Dad and Grandfathers by inviting them to ride on a vintage streetcar.
The Fort Smith Trolley Museum is located at 100 S. Fourth Street in Fort Smith.
