Iowa City Community Theatre brings 'George Washington Slept Here' to the stage this holiday season

Iowa City, Iowa – Envision the American dream this holiday season as the Iowa City Community Theatre presents GEORGE WASHINGTON SLEPT HERE by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, directed by Rachael Lindhart, December 2 – 11, 2016.

This comedic play brings the idea of the American dream to life, while throwing in several twists and turns along the way.

TICKETS: $17 adults, $14 students & seniors, $9 children.

Tickets are available online at www.iowacitycommunitytheatre.com or at the door, Johnson County Fairgrounds, Exhibit Hall A, 4261 Oak Crest Hill Road, Iowa City. Call 319-338-0443 for special seating needs.

THE STORY: Newton Fuller fulfills a lifetime ambition: to own his very own colonial farmhouse—a home in the country. He drags his wife, Annabelle, and their daughter, Madge, out to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to set up homesteading in a wreck of a house—broken windows, falling plaster, and a cow in the kitchen. But, Newton has faith—after all, George Washington slept there, so it’s even a part of history.

The cast features Karle J. Meyer (Hester), Chuck Dufano (Mr. Prescott), Eric Teeter (Leggett Fraser), Serena Collins (Sue Barrington), Caleb Borden (Tommy Hughes), Rip Russell (Uncle Stanley), Grant Blades (Raymond), Amy Schaefer (Rena Leslie and Miss Wilcox), Brad Quinn (Clayton Evans), Kristin Schneider (Mrs. Douglas), Evelyn Stanske (Kathie the Cook), Michael Hamlett (Steve Eldrige), Alexis Russell (Madge Fuller), Kathy Maxey (Annabell Fuller), David Priebe (Mr. Kimber) and Duane Larson as Newton Fuller.

Bachelor on the Cheap: Don't pay $4 or $5 bucks for birthday cards!

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

If you're the typical guy, you probably wait until the last minute to pick up a card for whatever, birthday, anniversary, graduation, etc., and you're in the grocery store card isle looking for a card that will do.

But why pay $4 or $5 for a cheesy birthday, anniversary, or holiday card, etc., when you can pay just 50 cents?

Hello Dollar Tree!  They've got you covered.  They've got cards for all events, simple cards, thoughtful cards and yes, even cheesy cards.  No, there's nothing musical or pop-up about their selection, but it's a good selection nonetheless.  And after all, it's about getting a card for the occasion, yes, it's the thought that counts, not how elaborate a card might be.

Save a few bucks, shop for cards for any occasion at Dollar Tree.  At 50 cents each, you can buy a number of cards for upcoming birthdays and holidays for that $4 or $5 and save yourself a number of last minute trips to the grocery store card isle!

 


Street View: Downtown Iowa City, Then and Now

The Johnson County Historical Society invites you to attend the unveiling of a new photography exhibition titled "Street View: Downtown Iowa City, Then and Now." This exhibition highlights images of the downtown area’s buildings and businesses from 1960 and 2016. The 1960s photographs were taken by an Iowa City firefighter and donated to JCHS by Rex Brandstatter. The scenes have been recreated over the past several months by local photographer, Rubin Flores. JCHS will display these street scenes along with period artifacts. The side-by- side views will encourage visitors to compare the buildings and businesses of downtown Iowa City “then" and “now.” 
 
 
The exhibition opening will begin at 3 pm, following the Irving Weber Award Ceremony.
This event is free and open to the public.
