Turner Center for the Arts Celebrates 50 Years of the Presenter Series


With an office in Manhattan, psychiatrist Dr. Susan Turner offers individualized consulting for a wide range of psychological disorders and provides holistic care that incorporates traditional biological therapies and lifestyle changes. Active in contributing to Doctors Without Borders, Dr. Susan Turner also supports the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts in Valdosta, Georgia, which her family helped establish and fund.

In 2017, the Center is commemorating the Presenter Series’ 50th anniversary, which recognizes Lowndes/Valdosta Arts Commission Inc.’s longstanding efforts to bring major theater productions to the Valdosta community. Starting with 1967 events at the Mathis City Auditorium, the South Georgia organization presented a variety of musical acts and touring Broadway shows, including Fiddler on the Roof and Chicago.

For the 2017-18 season, the Turner Center for the Arts is organizing three highly regarded productions, including the original musical Amazing Grace and 50 Years of Rock & Roll by Neil Berg. Also being performed is A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, a comedy that received several Tony Awards, including 2014’s Best Musical recognition.
