OLIVET, Mich. The Olivet College Arts and Communication Department will present a double bill of the one-act musicals Marry Me a Little and One False Move at the Oaks Theatre in downtown Olivet. The production will run Friday, Nov. 4 and Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. The shows are directed by Timothy Flynn, music program director and associate professor of music, and accompanied by Ramona Kime Graessle, adjunct associate professor of piano.
