This weekend are your last chances to see and hear a wonderful cast of teenagers present to you and your family the final three performances of “Fame” on the big stage of the Sampson Community Theater.

Please don’t miss watching the tons of talent you will see as this musical is full of songs and dances that will have you tapping your toes and wishing you were young enough to be on stage. Fame’s flames will go out this Sunday afternoon after the matinee performance at 2:30 p.m., but at 7:30 p.m. this Friday, April 27, and Saturday, April 28, they will be burning bright.

“Fame” is being sponsored by Performance Dodge & Ford and the Sampson Arts Council. Tickets may be purchased now at Inkspot and Matthew’s Gifts.

Thoughts until next time

Do you, like me, still find each day too short to think all the thoughts you want to think, all the walks you want to take, all the books you want to read, and see all the friends you want to see?

Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.

Nature, time, and patience are three great physicians.
