Garrettsville - Over a few hours, you will take a journey through the production and run of the play Nothing On (that is correct, not a typo). You will experience what really goes on behind the scenes during a production. Sometimes the drama behind the scenes is funnier than the drama on stage.  Act One takes place during a rehearsal of Nothing On. Act Two, takes place, behind the set during a matinee, and Act Three is once again during a performance in another town. As the tension between the actors from “Nothing On” grows, the comedy in the play “Noises Off” increases. Each actor from Curtains up Theatre not only plays their character in the play Nothing On, but they also play the part of the actor, playing the part, in “Nothing On”. Sounds confusing huh, you should have seen the actual rehearsals of this production – half the time the...

Now that the clock tower lights are lit, Santa has made the first of his (many) local appearances…for lunch, for breakfast, for pizza, etc….it’s time to get down to some serious shopping—preferably local, but wandering off into the exotic every so often. So, in pursuit of exotica (Try looking that up on the internet some times; Sears & Roebuck , it ain’t), I looked in some recent publications for inspiration.  A couple of the items located were more likely to bring about palpitations than inspiration….  But I digress (and aren’t you surprised to find THAT out?). If you’re looking for gift items that are NOT run-of-the-mill…have I got news for YOU! How about  an invisible bike helmet?  Apparently, this has been all over the internet—as well it should be.  A couple of female design student in Sweden had a project/exam problem to produce a safer bike helmet and took the entrepreneurial attitude,...
