101 Dalmatians performances continue

Linda Jewel Carr helps one of her Dalmatians get ready for the show.


The dogs have been let out for the next two weekends at the Sampson Community Theater and you will be able to see Scotties, Boxers, Chihuahuas, Poodles and over a hundred Dalmatians thanks to the efforts of Director L.J. Carr as “101 Dalmatians” come to life on the big stage of the Sampson Community Theater sponsored by Prestage Farms and a Grassroots Grant and featuring 2 casts of Sampson County young folks. Tickets are available now at Inkspot and Matthews Gifts.

Make your plans to come out and support this great group of kids who are having a wonderful time during rehearsals singing about their favorite friends, their dogs. If you need something to make you feel good just make plans to come on down to the Sampson Community Theater. Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. on June 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. on June 21 and 28.

Thoughts until next week:

There is no such thing in anyone’s life as an unimportant day.

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed-there’s so little competition.
