The Music Man Starring Peter Scolari to Open at the Ogunquit Playhouse July 20th!

 

There’s Trouble in River City… Yes, the critically acclaimed Broadway classic, The Music Man marches onto the Ogunquit Playhouse stage July 20 through August 20. Starring Emmy Award winner Peter Scolari as Harold Hill, Meredith Willson’s all-American favorite follows the fast-talking traveling salesman as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a town band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef!

Special Town of Woodstock, Maine Voting Results

Special Town of  Woodstock, Maine Voting Results

The town of Woodstock had a special vote for 3 issues on Tuesday, June 28.  One item concerned the acceptance of this year's school budget.  The other two questions asked residents whether they would allow the sale of hard liquor specifically on Sundays and/or if the town would allow sale of hard liquor from Monday to Saturday.  All three questions were overwhelmingly approved by voters.  The results were: Question 1 (school budget) YES-65, NO-24; Question 2 (Sunday sales) YES-61, NO-28; and Question 3 (Mon.-Sat. sales) YES-72, NO-16.  Approval of questions 2 and 3 now allows the State to decide whether a local business could become an agency liquor store.  There is a separate process for this to occur, if at all.

So we met a Mammographer named Karen Welch who is actually a breast cancer survivor.  She really loves her job and is able to share a special connection with her patients.  She likes to be able to calm their fears and tell them that there is hope especially if the cancer is caught early.  We had a lot of fun with her.  She roped a number of colleagues into the cover video shots.  If you see the spots Karen's sister is in the shot with the doctor looking at the X-rays and our own Amanda Hill's Aunt is the one walking down the hallway on Karen's right!  Turns out Amanda grew up in that area and lots of pe
