Georgia Ensemble Theatre remounts its 2013 jukebox musical “Almost Heaven, John Denver’s America” starting Thursday at a site that offers a measure of the natural beauty that so inspired the late singer-songwriter, Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell.

The show will be presented through Aug 8 under the Ben Brady Pavilion, with the audience allowed to bring a picnic or order from a catered menu from Talk of the Town with meals available for pickup at the event. Performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, with the nature center (9135 Willeo Road) opening at 6:30 p.m., allowing ticket-holders to take in the exhibits and grounds.

Tickets ($15 lawn seating, $30 reserved table seating under the pavilion): 770-641-1260, www.get.org.
