Saturday April 13, 2019
9:00 AM

Join us for Earth Day celebrations on April 13 as a volunteer and help us remove trash, litter, and debris from local rivers and streams at our 13th Annual Stream Cleanup.

In past years, volunteers have pulled vacuum cleaners, toys, car parts, dog houses, furniture and other items from our waterways. Plastics in all forms – from single-use drinks, bags, cups, food wrappers – are the most common trash that are removed each year.

Over the past twelve years, these efforts have helped remove more than 105,000 pounds of garbage with the help of 5,400 volunteers. This year's cleanups in 13 locations are a great way to get outside, improve the scenic beauty of our region and positively impact our wildlife habitat.

Walk-ins are welcome at this rain or shine event.

April 4 - May 5

Based on the 1993 film starring Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson, this new musical is a smart, funny, tender-hearted celebration of love: between children and parents; romantic partners; friends; and, most of all, siblings. The pair at the heart of the show are Joon, a young woman dealing with mental illness, and Benny, the big brother who’s determined to take care of her. When a charmingly eccentric stranger comes into their lives, he throws their carefully calibrated world off-kilter—maybe for the better. Large in emotional scope and artistic ambition, Benny & Joon embraces a difficult subject with warmth, honesty, and wit.

In fact, she has written a painfully long screenplay in a desperate attempt to revive her career. Enter struggling screenwriter Joe Gillis, who accidentally stumbles onto Norma’s property, and she quickly sees an opportunity. The drama gradually gets darker as Gillis discovers this wounded star is one whom you won’t walk away from unscathed.

Sister Orchid was conceived in solitude, executed in darkness. It comes from a place of quiet, a world of low lights and cool drinks, up against a hard wall.
