We want to hear from you! example thumbnail

The Baldwin Library is planning for the future! The Library is in the process of developing a new strategic plan to ensure that it is supporting the needs of the Baldwin Community. This survey is a part of that effort.

The survey has 5 questions and will take approximately five to seven minutes to complete. All survey participants will be entered into a drawing to win a McCormick and Schmick’s gift card or a pair of movie tickets. There will be multiple winners. Prizes will be awarded August 31.

Participants also have the option of remaining anonymous, however if you choose this option, you will not be eligible for the drawing.

Please help us make YOUR Library the best that it can be!    TAKE THE SURVEY TODAY!

Thank you

TEEN DRAMA CLUB PERFORMANCE

CRUMPLED CLASSICS by Craig Sodaro

Friday, August 8 @ 7:00 PM
  (please do not arrive before 6:45pm)

J E Harrison Middle School
129 Windvale Drive
Pittsburgh, PA 15236


Talented youth within the community present your family with an entertaining production. Donations to support this program will be accepted at the door. No registration required.

Summary: With first year teacher Ms. Collins out sick, a quirky cadre of students take it upon themselves to pull together the school’s annual “Classics on Parade,” acting out famous stories that they studied in their literature class. The students, however, decide to make the stories relevant to today’s audiences, with hilarious results! The authors are surely rolling over in their graves and Ms. Collins is terrified of losing her job, especially when the principal calls the superintendent in the middle of the show! You’ll love the hysterics of these plays-within-a-play. Romeo and Juliet set in a fast food place! Frankie Stein trying to assemble the perfect prom date! A second rate theatrical agent becoming the Phantom of the Opera so he can force a good deal! A desperate Shirley Holmes and Joni Watson jump-starting a new detective agency! And teenage slacker Artie surprising his unimpressed mother with a sword he pulled from a stone! It’s a comedy treat sprinkled with outrageous takes on some very familiar characters.   [Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado - Copyright 2010, Pioneer Drama Service, Inc.]

Please join us to support our cast of characters!
