Flat River Community Players present “9 to 5”

The Flat River Community Players will present “9 to 5” in July. The show opens July 10, with additional shows July 11, 12, 17 and 18. Pictured from left to right is Emily Smith (Doralee), Lindsay Tallian (Judy), Ric Davenport (Mr. Hart), and Brenda Jolls (Violet).

The Flat River Community Players will present “9 to 5” in July. The show opens July 10, with additional shows July 11, 12, 17 and 18. Pictured from left to right is Emily Smith (Doralee), Lindsay Tallian (Judy), Ric Davenport (Mr. Hart), and Brenda Jolls (Violet).

“Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’!” Can’t you just hear Dolly Parton singing this from the iconic movie, “9 to 5”?  Well, get ready because the Flat River Community Players will present their production of Dolly’s stage musical of “9 to 5” at the Greenville Area Community Center coming up in July!

Women who loved the female-empowerment movie in the 1980s might want to bring their daughters to see this production, which is still relevant in 2015. This stage version of the workplace tale still has the three secretaries joining forces to bring their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot of a boss to heel, but their own worlds and backgrounds are more fully developed with songs, mates, and some new scenes. Of course, their plan spins completely out of control bringing wild hilarity with it!

Stage director Amanda Hall and music director Katy McDonough have chosen a funny and diverse cast for “9 to 5.” Brenda Jolls (Violet Newstead), Emily Rice Smith (Doralee Rhodes), and Lindsay Tallian (Judy Bernly) star in the Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Jane Fonda roles respectively. Longtime FRCP veteran Ric Davenport tackles the Dabney Coleman role of Franklin Hart, Jr., the chauvinist who makes the gals’ lives miserable at the office.

The stage musical follows the movie quite closely as the three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world! Music and lyrics are by the great Dolly Parton and the book of the musical is by Patricia Resnick, who wrote the film’s screenplay.

Besides the well known title song, the show features 16 new Parton songs written especially for the show.

“9 to 5” opens at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 10. Additional 7:30 p.m. performances are on July 11, 17 and 18, with a matinee at 2:00 p.m. on July 12. Tickets are $13 for adults, $11 for students and senior citizens.

Order tickets in advance with VISA or Mastercard, either by using the ShowClix link at the Players’ website (www.frcp.org) or at the ShowClix site (www.flatriver.showclix.com). If you prefer, call 1-888-71-TICKETS instead.  Tickets will also be available at the door.

MCC presents engineering summer camps

 

Students entering first through fourth grades can apply basic engineering and architectural principles using unique LEGO® kits during three summer camps at Montcalm Community College.

“Dreamworld” is July 20-23 from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. daily. This four-day camp combines elements of engineering and architecture. Students will learn fundamental architectural principles, and general application of design principles for houses and commercial buildings. They will build a pullback car, summerhouse and restaurant.

“Pullback Frenzy” is July 20-23 from 6 to 9 p.m. daily. This four-day camp is designed to stimulate problem-solving and creativity. Students will build up to 15 cars while becoming mini-engineers. They will learn concepts such as gravity, potential energy and kinetic energy.

“Journey into Space” is July 27-30 from 5 to 8 p.m. daily. This four-day camp develops campers’ architecture and design skills, problem-solving and team building. Students will learn the importance of simple machines while building a spaceship and Apollo pullback car.

Each camp meets on MCC’s Greenville campus. The camp director is Bradley Davison and the cost is $59.

“We chose these camps because they focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math, or S.T.E.A.M.,” MCC Dean of Community & Workforce Education Susan Hatto said. “These encourage, educate and prepare today’s youth to pursue careers in S.T.E.A.M.-related fields through fun, interactive activities. Focusing on the classes that use unique LEGO® kits in particular is a great start for even the youngest of learners. Children enjoy playing with these blocks at home, so combining one of their favorite toys with learning is a great way to teach science and technology skills.”

All three camps utilize kits from All About Learning, Inc. Children will not keep the building kits. For more information, visit their website at www.allaboutlearning.co/. To register, visit www.montcalm.edu/camps.

The Juggler

 

A state trooper pulled a car over and asked the driver why he was speeding.

“I’m a magician and juggler on my way to do a show for sick kids,” he explained, “and I don’t want to be late.”

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him, he wouldn’t give him a ticket.

“I sent my equipment ahead and don’t have anything to juggle,” said the man.

“I have some flares in my trunk,” said the trooper. “Do you think you could juggle them?”

“Sure,” said the man.

So the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him.

While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car and sat there for a minute. Then a man (who was obviously drunk) got out, staggered over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.

The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked him what he thought he was doing.

“You might as well take my butt to jail,” said the drunk, “’cause there ain’t no way I can pass that test!”

Host a student through an historic exchange

 

Be part of the solution! World Heritage International is now looking for American families to host high school students from Eurasia. All these students have received scholarships through the US State Department sponsored Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program and will spend an academic year in the U.S. This historic program seeks to foster democracy and values inherent in a free market economy. Your support of these students and this program reinforces the United States’ commitment to education and opportunity.

World Heritage International is currently seeking host families for well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, FLEX scholarship students acquire and understanding of American values and build on leadership skills. From the beginning of this program, FLEX scholarship students work together after returning home to share what they have learned while in America and are making a significant difference in their home countries!

If you or someone you know are interested in learning more about our programs and how to become involved, please call 1(800) 888-9040 or go online at www.whhosts.com.

Secret of life

 

A woman was walking down a residential street, and noticed a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch. She called out to him as she passed.

“Hello there! I couldn’t help but notice how happy you look. What’s your secret for a long, happy life?”

“I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day,” he replied. “I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat nothing but fast food, and never exercise.”

“Wow!” The woman was amazed. “How old are you?” she asked.

“Twenty-six,” he replied.
