The Towne Players Present: Twentieth Century

The Towne Players Present: Twentieth Century

TONAWANDA, NY - The Towne Players present their spring show “Twentieth Century,” written by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur and directed by William Hooley beginning this Friday, March 4th. 

A comedy set in the observation car of the Twentieth Century Limited, travelling from Chicago to New York, tells the story of an egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffe, and his former protégé, Lily Garland, who abandoned him for a Hollywood career.  Oscar is determined to sign her for his new show, and Lily is just as determined to ignore his advances, both professional and personal.

The show will be presented at the Sheridan-Parkside Community Theatre, located at 169 Sheridan-Parkside Drive.

Shows will be performed on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM until March 12th.  There will also be one Sunday matinee, performed on March 6th at 2:00 PM.

Local Author to Sign Copies of Latest Book

Local Author to Sign Copies of Latest Book

TONAWANDA, NY – Albion resident and author Sheryl Stewart will be on-hand to sign copies of her latest work this Saturday, February 26th from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm.

Hosted by Payne Avenue Christian Church, 1451 Payne Ave., the book signing is designed to promote Stewart’s latest work, a Christian Children’s book, The Friendly Beasts: Stories of Jesus.

The novel is being raved as “a charming collection of short stories about the Nativity including modern versions of traditional legends and completely new stories. Within these tales, we see Jesus' birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection with new eyes: the humble eyes of our closest relatives in Creation, the animals. As they discover their part in God's Plan of Salvation, the friendly beasts—and a few not so friendly—enable us to discover the miracle of God's love for us all.”
