Naughty and Nice! 

When: Sun., Dec. 11, 6 p.m. 2016
Price: $75-$125

Leave it to a bunch of good ol' girls to take on the challenge of maintaining one of the state's earliest schools for young women. On Sunday, Triangle writers Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle will reunite with Nashville singer-songwriters Matraca Berg and Marshall Chapman for "Naughty AND Nice!" to raise funds for much-needed exterior renovation of the Burwell School Historic Site in Hillsborough. Originally known as the Burwell Academy, the antebellum institution set the bar high for young women who, through scholarship, would become "useful members of society." Sounds like any number of them easily could have become one of the characters bucking convention in Smith or McCorkle's distinctly Southern novels. A reception and the holiday-themed performance, based on the foursome's 2010 off-Broadway musical Good Ol' Girls, begins at 6 p.m. at Leland Little Auctions. It will be followed by a rollicking after-party at Hot Tin Roof featuring Cajun favorites from LaPlace Louisiana Cookery. —Jill Warren Lucas
