You Can’t Take It With You
Friday, April 13, Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach
A ballerina who can’t dance. An accidental playwright. An amateur illegal fireworks engineer. An aspiring xylophonist. At first the Sycamore family seems insane, but it is not long before you realize that if they are crazy, then the rest of the world is crazier. When Alice Sycamore falls in love with Tony, the son of the very wealthy and uptight Kirbys, the pair must find a way to bridge the gap between the two families— and of course, hilarity ensues! Featuring a cast of local teens, this production is sure to delight! More info at whbpac.org.
The 1st Annual Spring Flower Show Reception

Spring has sprung early this year, and just as gardeners are out planting beautiful arrangements in their gardens, artists are taking to their canvases to create beautiful floral works of art.

A new blown glass collection of vessels and containers to hold garden and cut flowers is also a new addition to this show. And Kramoris herself is re-presenting a striking 3 ft. stained glass amaryllis panel in antique European glass—etched and leaded.
Participating artists are: Maryann Lucas, Muriel Hanson Falborn, Mary Milne, Alan Nevins, Pingree Loucheim, JoAnne Carter, Roxanne Panero, Barbara Pintauro-Lobosco, Maria Orlova, and Amy Fischman.
Romany Kramoris Gallery is open Friday through Tuesday from 11 to 7 and open late on weekends. First Annual Flower Show runs through April 26.
