We had a fun breakfast meeting of the Jamesport-South Jamesport Civic Association at Angela DeVito’s house.

We missed you and you missed lots of food and fun! The next meeting is still to be announced, but we are shooting for a happy hour, or two, or three sometime in early August! Surely, you don’t want to miss that one! Stay tuned for more details!

On Saturday, June 25, at 7 p.m., the Jamesport Meeting House will present “Old, New and Blue,” a program of music from classic and current Broadway shows performed by future Broadway stars of New York City’s New Face Theatre. Peter Susser, the director of New Face Theatre, lives on South Jamesport Avenue. Tickets are $15 (students $10) and can be purchased in advance at Duffy’s Deli in Jamesport, Blue Door Gallery in Riverhead or Cecily’s Love Lane Gallery in Mattituck. Remaining tickets will be available at the door.

The program features rising stars of Broadway who hail from as far away as Australia and Canada and as nearby as Shelter Island! They will sing music from classic and current Broadway shows including “Les Misérables,” “Showboat,” “A Star Is Born,” “South Pacific,” “Company,” “Avenue Q,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and “The Witches of Eastwick,” plus contemporary theater music by Paul D. Mills. This program is presented in part through The New Face Theatre, director Peter Susser and musical director Paul D. Mills.

Many of you have enjoyed the many performances of Dayspring Performing Arts Training Center. The center’s instructors invite you to a showcase featuring a presentation by students, teachers, and former students, who will demonstrate what they have learned through their years of dance and drama training. The showcase will take place on Friday, June 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Living Water Full Gospel Church. For tickets and information, call 722-4969, ext. 204.
