A Changing of the Guard
There will be a changing of the guard at the Manhasset Press on January 1, when Eileen Brennan retires as editor after 19 years. The steady flow of information can be maintained by e-mailing your photographs, announcements, press releases and letters to Pat Grace, who will assume the editorship, at email@example.com. Another option is to place your material in the drop box provided at the back entrance to Raindew Family Centers at 465 Plandome Road. Contents of the box will be picked up on Friday and Monday mornings.
Manhasset residents should mark their calendars for Monday, Jan. 10, when registration begins for Broadway's hottest new ticket...Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring John Lithgow. Your library has tickets for the matinee performance, Wednesday, March 9. Based on the popular 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is a suave and sophisticated con artist who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other is a small-time crook who more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. This is a hilarious battle of cons, bringing out the best and worst in each man, along with a fun, unexpected twist that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end! The fee of $98 per person includes orchestra seat, bus and gratuities. The bus departs Christopher Morley Park at 10:30 am, leaving ample time for lunch on your own before the 2 p.m. curtain at the Imperial Theatre. Non-residents may register beginning Jan. 17.
