COMPILED BY CLAY NARRON Headwaters: Songs and stories W DAVID GREEAR hat happens when outside forces descend upon a mountain community already struggling to keep itself together? Or when the Feds arrive to change a region’s way of life, ’cause it’s the law? This summer’s production, “Headwaters: Didya Hear?” is a play created from stories gathered in the counties of Northeast Georgia, a region that is the headwaters to 12 rivers. This original community story play at the Sautee Nacoochee Center tells the tales of what people hear, as well as what they don’t hear. This entertaining play, which runs from July 10-21, Wednesdays through Saturdays, features songs, movements, puppets and stories that have been refined for this final episode in the “Headwaters” series. It will conclude seven years of “Headwaters” performances by local volunteers.
