Letter: Barrett Will Help Cheshire as State Representative

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

This last year the parents of Cheshire children faced terrible choices. Because a lack of planning and more important a lack of state funding for our schools, we were forced to close our local school. Rather then see their small children spend hours on the bus to schools in Adams or see their young children mixed with high school students, parents chose to move or take their children out of the HVRSD [sic] or even move out of town.

We need leadership that will make sure that funding is made available to re-open our local school, not only for children but to help Cheshire grow.

Others in the past have promised to,help, but paid little attention to needs of Cheshire. I urge everyone who cares about our children and our town to get out and vote for the one candidate that will keep his promise to help. Vote for a John Barrett, who has proven he can do the job.

Jim Boyle
Cheshire, Mass.

'It's A Wonderful Life' Radio Play Being Staged in Cheshire


This particular production is intended to be "script-in-hand," a full reading/performance of a play where the actors are allowed to have their scripts in their hands so lines need not be memorized.

CHESHIRE, Mass. — The Cheshire Community Association will present a community production of the Frank Capra family classic "It’s a Wonderful Life," adapted by Tony Palermo, at Tuesday, December 17, at 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall of St. Mary of the Assumption Parish at 159 Church St.

Brought to the stage as a 1940s radio broadcast in front of a studio audience, a dozen actors play radio dramatists, who, in turn, portray 30 characters from the heart-warming holiday film. Featuring live sound effects and an original score, this is a rare opportunity to see how a 1940s radio show was produced.

Producer/director Marya LaRoche has put together a cast of acting newcomers and seasoned veterans, featuring Simon Cole as George Bailey, Tommy Towne as Clarence, Elizabeth Kozik as Superintendent of Angels, Casey McShain as Mary Hatch Bailey, Travis Mille as Radio Announcer/Uncle Billy, and Shevaun Keogh-Walker as Potter, along with Curtis Elfenbein Asch, Mary Lou Burdick, Michael Morin Garrity, Patricia Kelly, Tyne LaRoche, and Larry Leavitt covering multiple roles.

This particular production is intended to be "script-in-hand," a full reading/performance of a play where the actors are allowed to have their scripts in their hands so lines need not be memorized. The director will utilize blocking, limited costumes, props and sound effects to create a performance experience for the audience.
