The 2016 season opens June 17 with the stage version of the popular British TV comedy, Are You Being Served? Other shows this year include Agatha Christie’s Black Coffee, Kauffman and Hart’s The Man who Came to Dinner, and a comedy entitled The Zombie.
The club hosted Ryan Kneeland of the Reach & Rise Mentoring Program at the YMCA of Greater Waterville. The program provides support for at-risk youth (ages 6 to 17) in need of extra attention due to difficult family situations. Mentors are volunteers who receive training to be effective friends, counselors, role models, and guides to the young people in the program. Mentors are typically members of the local community who are able to provide consistent one on one attention to the sponsored youth. Ryan noted that the program is an outgrowth of an effort originated at the Office of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention.
