Stage play set for weekend

LIBERTY LAUNCHES PROGRAM: After nearly a 10-year absence, Liberty High School is bringing back its theater program. Members take to the stage Friday, Saturday and Sunday to perform “Little Shop of Horrors.”

The theater program officially was relaunched last school year but was forced to call it quits early due to the state’s stay-at-home order. Graduates who missed out on the opportunity to perform last year will take part in this year’s performance alongside the 21 cast members, four lighting and sound technicians, nine stagehands and five members of the jazz band.

The performances will take place 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Due to social-distancing guidelines, a very limited number of tickets is available. Tickets can be purchased at: libertytheaterclub.ludus.com/index.

STUFF THE BUS: Donations are being accepted at Corner House Christian Church, 6954 Chestnut Ridge Road, Hubbard, where local teens will host a Stuff the Bus event for The Youngstown Blue Coats. The theme of the project is “In America, Nobody Should Freeze To Death.”

Items needed are sleeping bags, coats, hoodies, dry boots, winter gloves, winter hats, hand / foot warmers, blankets, tents, tarps, gym / duffel bags and new socks.

To make a monetary donation, call 330-531-1762 or visit Ytownbluecoats.org.
