It’s spring musical season at the high schools!

Webster Schroeder High School has announced that their production of The Addams Family will be staged on Friday April 23 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday April 24 at 2 and 7:30 p.m.

They’re hoping to accommodate small audiences at these performances, but most patrons will be able to see the production live through a professional streaming service. Tickets for that will be available beginning this Friday April 16 at wsmusicals.booktix.com. Tickets are $10 each.

Some of the accommodations Schroeder Drama has made for their musical this year include a smaller cast, having no permanent on-stage set, which allows for social distancing, and having the orchestra perform from the band room. The actors and musicians have had to deal with a lot of challenges to bring The Addams Family to the stage, so consider grabbing a ticket to show your support!

Stay tuned for more details about Webster Thomas’ spring play, Cabaret, scheduled for June 17 to 19 at the Penfield Amphitheatre. (Now THAT’S a creative way to beat Covid.) All shows will begin at 7:30 and tickets will be $12. Tickets will go on sale the beginning of May.

St. Martin Lutheran Church’s Spring Chicken BBQ will be held Saturday May 1 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the church, 813 Bay Rd.

The event will feature dinners of ½ chicken, salt potatoes, coleslaw, roll, and butter for $10.00.

The event this year will be drive-through only, first come, first serve, with no advance sales. Cars will enter the parking lot, follow signs, and purchase dinners using exact payment. Cars will then proceed to the front entrance to pick up boxed dinners. Dinners will be assembled according to CDC recommendations. Due to current health restrictions, pie slices and other desserts will not be available.

Proceeds will support St. Martin’s Christmas Stocking Project, which reaches more than 500 local youth in Monroe and Wayne counties.
