Hope Summer Repertory Theatre Launches 41st Season

Hope Summer Repertory Theatre Launches 41st Season

HOLLAND - The Hope Summer Repertory Theatre (HSRT) opens its 41st season with a revival of Chaps! at the Knickerbocker Theatre. Opening June 15 and running throughout the summer until August 10, Chaps! is a comedic portrayal of what happens when the worlds of BBC radio and cowboy music collide. Ticket prices range from $12 through $28. Making the world premiere at HSRT 17 years ago, Chaps! will be directed by playwrights Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner.

It’s 1944 London and the BBC is preparing a special musical broadcast for the troops on the front lines of World War II. Panic sets in when a singing American cowboy troupe fails to arrive. Prim-and-proper BBC employees scramble at the last minute to grab whatever they can slap together and perform as American cowboys in front of a live studio audience.

Saint Mary's School To Host Popular "White Elephant" Event June 29 & 30

SPRING LAKE, Mich., June 14, 2012 – For the first time in fifty years, Saint Mary’s Parish School is separating its crowd-pleasing, annual “White Elephant Sale” from its annual “Festival.” Event organizers are hoping that more members of the general public, as well as church members, will attend and take advantage in tough economic times of gently-used items at bargain-basement prices before the main summer travel season begins.

The White Elephant Sale will be held June 29 and 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day at Saint Mary’s School, 421 East Exchange Street, Spring Lake.  Local Spring Lake residents Jennifer and Tom Ladd, together with Jim and Becky Twa, are serving as co-chairpersons for this year’s event and also the Saint Mary’s Festival.
