A beautiful vehicle parked on the sidewalk in front of the Sampson Community Theatre is an example of what waits for you at Performance Dodge, the sponsor of “Grease.” Those of you who were not able to see “Grease” at the community theater last weekend are in luck because there will be more performances this weekend, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 26-28 at 8 p.m. and a matinee performance Sunday, June 29 at 3 p.m.
The audiences this past weekend were treated to some of the best teenage talent we have in our county, and the cast was rewarded with multiple rounds of applause and cheers. You don’t want to miss Sandy as she sings “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” or as the whole cast sings “You’re the One That I Want.”
Because of family vacations, director Angela Martin will hold a third audition for for Disney’s “Little Mermaid Jr.” Sunday, June 29 at 7 p.m . She has had a large number audition already, but does not want to leave anyone out who might want to try their talents out on the big stage. Actors needed are ages 4-15.
In July, the board will begin considering plays for our 2015 season. If there is a special show you would like to see on our stage, you are requested to call us at 592-8653, leave us a message to include the play or plays you would like to see and your suggestions will be considered.
Our website is available at: www.sampsoncommunitytheatre.org and we are on Facebook but if you visit us there, we ask that you “like” us while there.

Thoughts until next week:
• Rudeness is a weak person’s imitation of strength
• A dog own’s nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied
• Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, and take care of your words when you are with people
