This Weekend

 

First Baptist Church of Lilburn invites the community to "The Journey of Christmas"  Musical/Drama, Saturday, Dec. 17th at 1:30 pm and Sunday, Dec. 18th at 10:30 am.  

On Dec. 24th all are invited to Christmas Eve Candleligth Service at 5:30 pm. and Dec. 25th - Christmas Day Monrning Worship Service at 10:30 am.  First Baptist is located at 285 Main Street in Lilburn. www.firstbaptist.net.

  

Staged Right Production of "Almost, Maine"

Two performances remain- Saturday night at 8 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm; tickets are between $10 and $15  - and great small group seating. For ticket information, visit www.stagedrighttheatre.org/tickets.php or e-mail tickets@stagedrighttheatre.org. Venue is located at 5331 Lawrenceville Hwy. in the Lilburn Square Shopping Center near the Dry Cleaners.

A Review:  This is not-to-be-missed holiday entertainment. Friday night's play was so well done; the crisp, cold air of Lilburn certainly helped transport attendees to Almost, Main. From there the actors took over with a series of poignant vignettes that tickled and challenged our inner selves. Lighting, sound effects, music and the set itself was professional and creative as Staged Right presented this first season tight-budgeted play in a made over retail space in Lilburn Square Shopping Center. Once started the production moved quickly with precision timing. Each scene was very entertaining with a thought provoking message and before one knew it, it was approaching 10 pm and time to bid adieu to our new stage friends. 

The set, the music, the acting were incredible - hard to imagine that here in Lilburn we have attracted actors and stage support who have  experience in a variety of well-known community theatres: New Dawn, Lionheart, New London, Horizon, Aurora, Live Arts, and Alliance, to name a few. Yes, real theatre is here reaching out to our community - time for our community to check them out.  - DP

Another review:  “ What a delightful confection of a show. Heather Kapp, Ilene Miller, Joshua Howe, Paul Franklin, Deidre Odell, and Jimmy Groove turn in hilarious and heartwarming performances, with some brilliant physical comedy thrown in. Spencer Estes's set makes perfect use of the intimate space. Kudos to director Robbie Summerour for concocting a wonderful way to start the holidays….This is a truly sweet show. No wonder it's one of the most produced plays in America. And Staged Right does a great job with it.”

From the Website:  “On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.” (From the Publisher's Website) Directed by Staged Right's founder, Robbie Summerour, "Almost Maine" is the perfect holiday treat! 

When "Almost, Maine" closes, Staged Right will begin preparations for "A Doll's House" to be performed in the Wynne-Russell House in March, 2017. Auditions will be Jan. 3 and 4 in the evening at the Wynne-Russell House. go to the website for more info: http://stagedrighttheatre.org/

Publisher's Note:  Recently my husband and I took the tour and found it to be a great experience for family groups and out of town guests. We spent around 45 minutes touring the out buildings - barn with farming implements, smoke house, blacksmith's shed and ended with a leisurely tour of the house complete with hot cider/chocolate and a take home craft. While it wasn't lit with real candles - it was better with the battery lighted candles and LED laterns.  Really fun, informative and highly recommended. - DP

From SafetySmart Lilburn

Excellent suggestions for holiday safety:

"Reduce the chances of becoming a victim of a crime. Consider these tips as you get ready for shopping this holiday season.

Parking Lots / Walking to the Store

• Avoid shopping alone, there is safety in numbers.

• Park in a high visibility area with good lighting and plenty of other shoppers/pedestrian traffic.

• Try not to park next to vehicles with dark window tint or other concealment.

• Don’t leave anything in plain view! Put shopping bags, packages and other valuables in the trunk. If a potential thief is walking by your vehicle and doesn’t see anything inside, it drastically reduces the chances they will break in.

• Make sure the vehicle is locked and the alarm is set.

• Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Don’t just park and get out. Do a quick scan of the lot to make sure no one is looking at you or approaching you. Make eye contact with others as you walk. This will allow you time to react and avoid being surprised.

• Walk briskly and confidently through the parking lot. Criminals choose a victim who looks like an easy target. Don’t be distracted with your phone; have your head on a swivel as you walk.

• Be wary of strangers who attempt to start meaningless or odd conversations. This includes people giving you a sob story about needing money for food or gas. Many times these people work in PAIRS. Even though you are talking to a seemingly “harmless” person, the 2nd suspect might be coming up from behind you.

• WOMEN: If you carry a purse, carry it close to the body preferably in front. Avoid having the strap on your shoulder or across your body. If someone tries to grab your purse, you could get seriously injured by being thrown to the ground if you have straps attached/around body parts.

If you see something, say something. Don't hesitate to call 911 to report suspicious activity.

Wynne-Russell Historic Preservation Committee

The WRHPC had a great turn out for their grounds clean-up this past Thursday.  Volunteers raked, blew off the leaves in the parking lot and freshened the pine beds. The crowning touch for the historic house was the hanging of wreathes inside and out.  Be sure to come out Dec. 10 to the Open House.

The committee meets the second Wednesday of the month at the Wynne-Russell House. The next meeting is Jan. 11 at 5:00 pm. New members welcomed.

Also, many thanks to one of the committee member's mother who painted the beautiful donation jar that you can view in the photo gallery sidebar.
