Lewisville, LISD, DEA Team Up for Medication Disposal Event

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/4/9 20:24:48 (738 reads)

Open in new windowThe City of Lewisville is teaming up with LISD and the DEA to hold another medication disposal event. The goal of this operation is really two-fold, to reduce the risk of prescription drug abuse and increased awareness of this critical public health issue.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 28th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. As with past events, the Lewisville disposal location will be the parking lot of Lewisville High School at 1098 West Main Street. This is the only Lewisville location, but other locations include Flower Mound High School, Hebron Valley Elementary, Marcus High School and The Colony High School. For more locations, visit www.dea.gov. For more information, call 469.948.8680.

This is a great opportunity for those who have missed previous events, or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of those medications.

Rotary, Scouts to Hold Retirement Ceremony for Unserviceable U.S. Flags

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/4/4 20:14:16 (1727 reads)

Open in new windowOn May 19th, 2012 from 1 - 2 p.m. the Lewisville Morning Rotary, with participation from Voices of Praise Choir from First Baptist, Lewisville, the local Boy Scout and Girl Scout districts, and with help from the City of Lewisville will be hosting a US and Texas flag retirement. The ceremony will be at the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater in Old Town Lewisville.

The U.S. Flag code prescribes that when a flag is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Since burn bans and city ordinances make it difficult for an individual to properly burn a flag in a dignified way to retire it, these organizations will be collecting flags from individuals and businesses who need to retire them.

Collection boxes for unserviceable flags are at City Hall, and the MCL Grand Theater, or you can drop them off at Lewisville Fire Stations, year-round.

For more information, contact Lewisville City Councilman T.J. Gilmore: tgilmore@cityoflewisville.com

GLCT Presents Hilarious "Room Service"

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/2/10 1:40:00 (844 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowMamaSk8z and I just got back from viewing the final rehearsal for Greater Lewisville Community Theatre's production of "Room Service", a play by John Murray and Allen Boretz, directed by Harry Friedman. GLCT was kind enough to host the Old Town Business Association for the preview. I still am chuckling about it. I'm not practiced at writing play reviews, but I'll take a stab at it, because this was a good one.

The play, set in 1937 New York City, is about a Broadway producer trying to pull off a play called "Godspeed" on a shoestring. (Yes, it's a little bit "meta", but not overly so) The entire play takes place in a hotel room where the producer and his shyster cohorts rely on their creativity to pull together resources (by any means necessary) to get Godspeed to opening night. Meanwhile, the hotel manager has learned of their over-extended credit, and wants to throw them out. Hilarity ensues when the characters use ever-more ridiculous tactics to hold on to their dreams.

The play is very well cast, with all the characters very believable in their roles. The main character, Gordan Miller, was played by a very convincing Nelson Wilson. We were highly amused at how genuinely, yet comedically freaked out the character of Joseph Gribble was, played by Craig Boleman. Gribble's boss, Mr. Wagner, was played by Tom Moore, who couldn't have been more closely matched with the part. Michael McCray plays Leo Davis, the young bumpkin writer of Godspeed, who is pulled into the schemes from the first minute he arrives.

It's a laugh a minute, and just when you think the shysters can't get any more ridiculous, or stoop any lower they outdo themselves.

"Room Service" plays from February 10th - 26th, Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 3:00 p.m. at the Greater Lewisville Community Theater on Main Street in Old Town Lewisville.

Tickets are a very reasonable $15 for adults, and $12 for seniors and juniors 18 and under.

Seriously, do yourself a favor; grab someone and go to this play.

Symphony Presents "Stars of the Future", Featuring Winning Young Artists

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/2/8 2:41:29 (655 reads)

Open in new windowThe Lewisville Lake Symphony presents “Stars of the Future”, a program of Mozart, Chopin, Vieuxtemps, and Weber featuring the Grand Prize Winners of the Vernell Gregg Young Artists’ Competition. The concert begins a 7:30 p.m. on February 17, 2012 at the MCL Grand, 100 Charles Street in Old Town Lewisville across from City Hall.

Adron Ming, the Music Director and Conductor of the Symphony who judged the Competition along with three professors from UNT’s College of Music, said that the number of competitors doubled this year. The first round of 65 was winnowed by listening to performances submitted on CDs. Nineteen contestants were invited to perform, live, in front of the judges.

“The terrific musical talent from all over North Texas made the judging particularly hard,” said maestro Ming. “After considerable discussion, the judges decided that, this year, three contestants would be declared Grand Prize Winners. They are Rhiana Caterisano, clarinet, Claire Wells, violin, and Ximei Li, piano.” In addition to performing with the all-professional Symphony, they share the $1,500 prize money.

The program features Mozart’s Overture to Così fan tutte, and Vieuxtemps’ Violin concerto No.5, plus movements from Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor, Von Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No.2

Top of the Strings - January 27th

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/1/26 23:30:00 (584 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowThe Lewisville Lake Symphony's International Chamber Series presents "Top of the Strings", a program of Bartok, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky played by young artists from The Institute For Strings. The concert is on Friday, January 27, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5500 Morriss Road in Flower Mound. The program is presented in cooperation with the College of Music at the University of North Texas. The concert is free. A donation to the Symphony is appreciated.

The Institute For Strings was established in 1996 by Jan Mark Sloman, for many years the Principal Associate Concert Master of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. It runs for two weeks each June and attracts young musicians from all over the United States.

The four Institute artists performing in the "Top of the Strings", each with the prospect of a great musical career ahead of them, are Jordan Lee and Christine Wu, violins, Matthew Geise, viola, and Brian Zhao, cello. The Symphony's website, www.lewisvillesymphony.org, has a YouTube of the quartet practicing for the concert.

The two violinists play a series of duets by Bella Bartok, each requiring increased virtuosity. Christine Wu and international pianist Pamela Mia Paul, recently back from a concert tour in China, perform Schumann's Sonata for Violin and Piano. The quartet joins together for Tchaikovsky's String Quartet Number 1.

MCL Grand to celebrate first anniversary with “Mama’s Party” on Jan. 14

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/1/12 23:44:09 (480 reads)

Open in new windowTalented performers from across North Texas will converge on the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater on Saturday, Jan. 14, to help celebrate the facility’s first anniversary.

The event also will include the opening reception for “Our Town,” a new gallery exhibit by Visual Art League (VAL). Admission is $10, with all proceeds benefitting the 88 Keys campaign toward a Steinway concert grand piano at MCL Grand.

“Our Town” will open at 6:30 p.m. with a reception and cash bar. The exhibit theme is historic Lewisville, and VAL artists will present interpretations in various media of historic and contemporary scenes reflecting Lewisville’s rich heritage. The show will remain in the gallery through Feb. 25. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m. To schedule group visits during other hours, call 972.219.8446.

“Mama’s Party” will start at 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall. This popular activity brings together some of the finest musical theater talent in North Texas for a casual showcase of scenes and songs. It has been a weekly fixture at Contemporary Theater of Dallas, making a special visit to mark the MCL Grand anniversary.

Amy Stevenson (“Mama”) is an experienced local entertainer with deep ties to regional theater, and she invites her friends to come sing, play and perform. The result is a mixture of new and veteran North Texas performers who combine to put on a show that audience members will never forget.

Steinway Hall has donated the use of a nine-foot Steinway grand piano for the evening. Scheduled performers so far include Stephanie Riggs, Jay Gardner, and Michael Smith, but the lineup is always changing and many more familiar faces from local theaters are expected.
