“The Witness” comes across as a heavy weight contender, with Lee Weaver’s powerful performance, intelligent dialogue and moving visuals. This play written and performed by Lee Weaver touches on the past, but as the play progresses the present with its issues makes this piece of work poignantly relevant. The audience at the end could not help but to respond with a standing ovation.
This is a must see!

The Limelight Theatre rocks the house with a another wonderful musical evergreen “Hello Dolly”. The cast consists of 23 brave souls, with director Blake Osner, and Shelli Long as musical director the musical is awesome.
Performed at the Gamache-Koger Theatre and directed by Anne Kraft of A Classic Theatre, Inc. This staged reading is “a scrapbook of stories about unfortunate prom dresses, the traumatic lighting in fitting rooms, high heels, short skirts and the existential state of having nothing to wear. Accessorizing these tales – which are mostly comic but often sad or sentimental too – are the mothers who disapprove, the men who disappear, the sisters who’ve got your back.” -Christopher Isherwood, NY Times Comedy/drama
The play is by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman. Local actors will depict the characters.
