Kudos to the students in the Dietrich's After School Theatre Arts program. Their performance at the end of February was truly amazing. We would like to thank the program's director Jennifer Jenkins, set design instructors Amy and Steve Colley and choreographer Judy Weist for their outstanding leadership.
The Dietrich also recently hosted a Folk Music Benefit Concert. Lorne Clarke and the gang did a spectacular job. More than 125 folks came out for the afternoon of music and stories. We would like to thank all of the artists who donated their time and talent for the event . This Saturday, March 10 from 9 a.m. to noon, the Dietrich will be hosting a free movie "Under Our Skin" on the subject of Lyme disease. A Q&A will follow this show with Dr. Daniel Cameron, M.D. Dr. Cameron is considered to be a pioneer on Lyme disease as an author of practice guidelines, analytic reviews and clinical trials. He has testified as an expert on Lyme disease for legislation in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania for physicians' rights to diagnose Lyme disease using clinical judgment without state interference. He is been interviewed as an expert on the subject on NBC's "Today Show" and "Good Morning America." He sees patients in his private practice in Mt. Kisco, N.Y. and maintains the website www.LymeProject.com.
After we started promoting this movie event with the Endless Mountains Lyme Disease Support Group a few weeks ago. For more information or to reserve your free tickets to this event, please call the Dietrich at 996.1500. It will hopefully answer a lot of our questions about Lyme Disease diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention.
At the end of March, the Dietrich will also be presenting a live theatre event "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Dale Wasserman based on the novel by Ken Kesey. The cast has been busy rehearsing for several weeks now and I can't wait for them to take to the Dietrich stage for their five-day run from March 21 to 25. The cast is impressive and I know we will be in for a treat. Tickets are $10 each. For more information about show times or to reserve your tickets, please call us at 570.996.1500.
As you can see the Dietrich is so much more than the movies!
