‘Blithe Spirit’ cancelled, rescheduled for spring

By Bruce Caldwell - Contributing columnist

The most recent hurricane (her name was “Florence” in case you forgot) left a truck load of water inside your community theater with the results that “Blithe Spirit” is being prolonged until March of 2019.

Also the scheduled auditions for “A Christmas Story”will still be held at 10 a.m. this Saturday but in the choir room of the First Methodist Church which is located at 208 Sampson St. Dan Holland is the director of this fun show that has a large cast and features Christmas music and will be a joy for the cast as well as for the folks who attend the show. All ages are needed at auditions so young or old, come on down and get in the Christmas spirit early.

Thoughts until next week

Will the child you were be proud of the person you are today?

Never let yesterday use up too much of today.

The world is full of suffering but it is also full of people overcoming it.
