'Just Another High School Play' presented by the Independent Teen Theatre Club

Our teen actors have been working hard this summer under the direction of Briana Garside to put together this production of "Just Another High School Play". Performances are Friday, August 15th and Saturday, August 16th at 7pm.

A group of actors, who have apparently been abandoned by their drama teacher, have to fend for themselves opening night in front of a live audience. The student assistant director and the stage manager step in, find a box of scripts which they pass out to the cast, and try to throw something together. What follows is a rollicking show full of physical comedy, gags, and satirical re-writings of many plays from Shakespeare to Albee.

Tickets are $5 each and will be available ahead of time or at the door.

14th Annual Joe Bishop Memorial Golf Outing

Monday, September 8, 2014

8:30 AM Shotgun StartMerrimack Valley Golf Club

210 Howe Street

Methuen, Massachusetts 01844

Year after year we continue to be amazed by the support we receive from friends and family for our Dadís memorial golf outing. Itís hard to believe that this year marks the 15th†Anniversary of Joeís passing. His memory continues to live on and we are fortunate to be able to do this every year as part of his legacy.

Joe was a man who cared deeply about his family but equally focused his time and energy on those in need in the communities that surrounded him. Throughout his life, Joe was an avid supporter of Lazarus House Ministries and advocated the good deeds they perform on a day-to-day basis.

Lazarus House has been a pioneer in assisting the homeless, the poor and those in need. Lazarus House operates a shelter, soup kitchen and assists food pantries, among many other services. They are continuously working to help move people beyond poverty and crisis, into the mainstream.

Join us this September to celebrate the life of a man who dedicated so much of his time to helping those in need. We look forward to seeing all of you and having a great day of golf in honor of Joe!
