Theater, Thomas, Music, and Swim Team

Miners Alley Playhouse opens a new play tonight.  My Name is Asher Lev follows the journey of a young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing and his desperate need to fulfill his artistic promise. When his artistic genius threatens to destroy his relationship with his parents and community, young Asher realizes he must make a difficult choice between art and faith. This stirring adaptation of a modern classic presents a heartbreaking and triumphant vision of what it means to be an artist.

The Railroad Museum starts the first of three weekend visits by Thomas the Tank Engine tomorrow!  Tickets are available online, at the Museum’s website.  You should buy them ahead of time, since the most desireable time slots sell out early.

The Golden Marlins swim team start their fall session this Sunday, September 13th.  The program runs for 10 consecutive Sunday nights. Find more information and to sign up online, visit the website at:
