I have been bitten by the acting bug. Nothing serious, the only side effects are a great deal of fun and lots of laughs. I have a lovely itty bitty role in the melodrama "The Great Ice Cream Scheme," that will be playing at the BellRock Schoolhouse Theatre, BellRock Hall. It is a delightful play that will keep you in stitches. The comedic timing of veteran actors, Connie Shibley and Dick Miller is brilliant as they take on the roles of the villains Parfait Deluxe and I C Custard. The performances by the other cast members, as they foil the villains, are outstanding and will provide the audience with a wonderfully entertaining evening. Come out and enjoy an evening of fun and laughter. Three "Dinner Theatre" performances on Friday, June 7, Saturday, June 8 and Saturday, June 15 starting at 6 pm. Tickets are $20. Dessert Matinee on Sunday, June 16. 2:30 pm. Tickets $ 12. Tickets at Verona Drug Mart, Local Family Farms, Verona Hardware and Asselstine Hardware.
