Try your best to slow down the last month of summer! Instead of smelling the roses though, take in a great cultural event! Right here in town!
6pm: Heritage House Blues Band
Dusk: The Princess Bride
Newton Country Players*
August 3-4 and August 10-11 at 8pm
MassBay Community College | $20
A matchmaker who can also do magic. A chess team that’s more popular than the football team. A high school where everyone can love whoever they want, however they want, whenever they want. Heartsville High, the setting for the Newton Country Players’ Zanna, Don’t!, may not be a typical high school. But it is within this setting that conceptions about homosexuality are challenged, love is encouraged, and high schoolers are accepted.
It’s a rare treat to see this show, which is set to a fun, pop score: when the Newton Country Players’ production opens on August 3, it will be only the fourth time this musical has been performed in Massachusetts.
