Park Players completed the 2010-2011
season with extensive participation in
June Day activites, followed by their
June cookout meeting marking the
end of another successful year. We
look back nostalgically at the powerful
production of Palmer Park and the
effervescent Hairspray. As another
chapter closes, we open the book on
what's to come.
Co-producers Mary Davis, Carly
Matkovich, and Sarah Hedeen are busy
planning Our Town. A music director
has been hired. What, you say, I didn't
know Our Town was a musical. Well
of course, you're right. However, this
production is not your father's (or
mother's) version. It will have an active
choir with live music. Actors will
serve multiple roles such as customer
greeters, food servers, and sound
effects. The play will truly be "our
town", North Rosedale Park.
                                            Auditions will be held at the North     prior to Thanksgiving. Scripts and

        A mom-to-mom sale is a lot like a garage or yard sale, but it’s specifically for parents who want to sell their gently
        used kids’ stuff, like toys, clothes, books, videos, and baby furniture – and for parents who want to buy great stuff
            for their children at discounted prices. You can sometimes even find used maternity clothes at these sales.
