SMASH MUSICAL CABARET
A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE

MORRISVILLE, PA – The Actors’ NET of Bucks County concludes its 15th season July 15 –
31 with the brilliant musical blockbuster, Cabaret.

With a book by Joe Masteroff, based on the play by John van Druten and stories by

Christopher Isherwood, Cabaret boasts an explosive score with music by John Kander and lyrics

by Fred Ebb.

“The title song, Cabaret, along with Don’t Tell Mama, Tomorrow Belongs to Me and

the scathingly satirical Money, Money, Money, are just a few of the melodic treasures to be

presented,” explained Actors’ NET General Manager Joe Doyle of Morrisville, who directs the

show, with Pam Jorgensen of Franklin Park, NJ as assistant director.

“Our tiny Heritage Center stage in Morrisville has expanded out into the house – to

make the audience feel more a part of the action than ever before,” explains Doyle. “Set against

the backdrop of the rise to power of the Nazis in the 1930s, Cabaret follows the lives of the

performers and patrons of the scandalous Kit Kat Club in Berlin. . . .

“Cabaret is no simple ‘boy meets girl’ musical,” Doyle said. “It explores young love,

mature love, lust, bigotry, bravery and cowardice – showcasing mankind at its best and worst.

And ever present, demanding your attention, is the club’s enigmatic and androgynous Emcee,

played by Scott Lutz of Philadelphia.”

Running weekends July 15 – 31, Cabaret performs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and

Sundays at 2 p.m. There are also performances at 8 on Thursday July 21 and 28 and one special

Saturday matinee, July 30 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors (62+) and $10 for

children 12 and under. Due to mature themes and sexuality, parental discretion is advised.

The Heritage Center is located 635 N. Delmorr Avenue (Route 32), Morrisville – near the

Calhoun Street Bridge.

Penn Action and BuxMont Coalition for Peace Action are co-sponsoring a public meeting dedicated to Medicaid, Medicare and Defense spending reduction. These are the details:

Tuesday, July 19, 2011
7:00 p.m.

Pennswood Village Game Room
1382 Newtown Langhorne Rd
Newtown, PA 18940-2401
7:00pm

We are hosting the public meeting to explore the ramifications of Cong. Fitzpatrick’s April 15 vote to effectively end Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. We will also be talking about military spending and ways to reduce it beyond destroying America’s safety net.

On June 30, Penn Action requested, in writing, that the Congressman schedule a series of no fewer than four town halls around the district to explain his vote to destroy Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. He has not yet complied. His vote carries real consequences for the people of the 8th CD. For instance, 58% of nursing home patients in the 8th CD are on Medicaid. During the meeting we will discuss questions we all have about the impact of ending Medicaid (and Medicare) on real people.

We would like to fill the space, which means about 50 people turning out. Can we count on you to join us on Tuesday, June 19 and to encourage your friends to do the same? The meeting will be informative and energizing with time for attendees to discuss the issues at hand.

Thanks – please RSVP to let us know if you are able to attend.

The Big Uneasy — Harry Shearer’s (Le Show) New Film

Time
Wednesday, July 20 · 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Location
Theatre N at Nemours
11th & Tatnall Streets
Wilmington, Delaware 19801
Created By
Delaware Riverkeeper Network
More Info
Harry Shearer (Spinal Tap, The Simpsons, NPR’s Le Show) has made a documentary film, The Big Uneasy, about how the post-Katrina catastrophe in New Orleans was a man-made, not natural, disaster. He argues that the Army Corps caused the flooding by ignoring expert advice and building control systems that failed, and worse yet, the expensive upgrades the Corps has made to the flood control system have not improved the protection of the city.

This story of the Army Corps ignoring the science, facts and warnings is playing itself out right now, again, in our own Delaware River watershed. Despite warnings and concerns expressed by the environmental agencies and experts of New Jersey and Delaware, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the Delaware Estuary Program, the Delaware River Basin Commission, environmental organizations like the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, and even the Government Accountability Office; despite that there are two federal legal court actions challenging the Delaware Deepening project as a violation of major environmental protection laws like the Clean Water Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Clean Air Act, National Environmental Policy Act and more; the Army Corps is bulldozing the Delaware Deepening Project forward.
