St. Paul Performing Arts Performs The Penny Dreadfuls  (59,138 Views)


St. Paul Catholic High School performing arts department is excited to present the onstage performance of The Penny Dreadfuls. Over 40 talented cast and crew members have been preparing for this production. These last few months they have been playing orphans and runaways who spend their nights and days working for the dastardly Professor as pickpockets and thieves.

They have got far more than mischief up their sleeves! Stolen goods end up at an antique and collectibles shop run by the despicable Bethesda Nightsoil and Dorthea Sprockett. The Professor’s partnership with these ladies has been very profitable until Mad Aggie, a former Penny Dreadful now disguised as the town lunatic, vows revenge on the Professor for sending him to jail for ten long years. And revenge was never sweeter! Meanwhile, the Professor’s bizarre family, who thinks he’s a respectable businessman, comes for an unwelcome visit but the Professor has mysteriously disappeared. His family becomes suspicious and so does his girlfriend, Lola Foxglove. They all suspect Bethesda and Dorthea of doing him in. When the Professor finally does make an appearance, his desperate cruelty shocks even the ladies.
This is a fast-paced, comic play reminiscent of Dickens’ “Oliver Twist.” As in Dickens’ novel, all villains get their due. The Penny Dreadfuls opens on Friday, November 16th and runs through Sunday, November 18th at the St. Paul Catholic High School’s Performing Arts Theater. Performances are at 7pm Friday and Saturday with a 2pm matinee on Sunday.

Tickets go on sale Friday, October 26th and can be purchased online at www.spchs.com.

Special Screening: Donovan's Reef by Ed Beloin @ BPL  (60,167 Views)


Donovan's Reef was Written by Bristol, CT native Ed Beloin. Beloin had a successful career writing for Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Jerry Lewis. His television credits include: The Lucy Show, My Three Sons and Family Affair. Besides Donovan's Reef, Beloin's movie credits include GI Blues with Elvis Presley and Visit to a Small Planet with Jerry Lewis. Beloin was born April 1, 1910 in Bristol and passed away in Florida in 1992.

The Story:

Three World War II Navy veterans -- Donovan (John Wayne), Doc Dedham (Jack Warden) and Gilhooley (Lee Marvin) -- converge on the French Polynesian island of Haleakaloha and team up to deceive Dedham's prim daughter (Elizabeth Allen), who has just learned of her father's existence and his inherited stock from the company of which she is chairman, and hopes to find just cause to reclaim his shares. Dedham's marriage to an island woman serves to further threaten his share in the company.

No charge. RSVP at the library, online or by calling: (860) 584-7787 x 3.
