This Saturday, catch an 11 am showing of celebrated British playwright Alan Bennett’s filmed play People at the Tivoli. “People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one’s house. But with the park a jungle and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy (Frances de la Tour) wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.” Sounds funny!

Runners of all paces meet every Wednesday at Little Shark and set out promptly at 6pm to run a beginner-friendly 3-mile route. This weekly session is year-round and what better time to get into shape than spring! Little Shark’s friendly and knowledgeable staff can also give you more details about this year’s Big Shark New Town Triathlon, to be held July 13th and 14th in New Town, St. Charles.
