Middle school anxieties are infamous … raging hormones, trying to fit in, breaking away from parent controls to name a few. While those years are notoriously full of struggles and sometimes painful self-discovery for most adolescents, it’s great fun to remember those years from the safe distance of adulthood. Halifax County Little Theatre’s upcoming production of the Tony Award winning musical 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee touches on many of those classic teenage struggles, and they’re betting audiences will recognize and remember some of the same issues portrayed on stage.
The Prizery arts center in Downtown South Boston has three great shows remaining in its regular performance season:
Halifax County Little Theater musical director, Bob Thomasson raised the roof in 2008 with “Smokey Joe’s Café.” For HCLT’s current season, Thomasson has raised the bar … and raised it so high that even the stage has been lifted into the sky --- about eight feet, to be exact --- in order to showcase the back up band for HCLT’s current production of “SUDS: The Rocking 60’s Musical Soap Opera.”
Just in time for summer, Caffe Peroni in Downtown South Boston is making, on-site, its own gelato. Gelato is sometimes known as Italian ice, but there’s nothing icy about these creamy, luscious concoctions except the temperature.
