The kick-off event to summer, The July Block Party, was a HUGE SUCCESS. Thank you to everyone who came out and donated money.
We will be back out on Main Street for the Sidewalk Bazaar August 4th, 5th, and 6th with face painting, music, and more! Make sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with the latest news.
We also want to thank the Gloucester Daily Times for celebrating Katy Geraghty and the Hexacords participating in POP TV's "Sing It On." If you can't watch their performance Wednesday, July 27th at 9pm, the award-winning a capella group will be returning to GHS this fall. Tickets will become available once the school year starts for the November 10th performance.
The Gloucester U Summer Drama program is having a blast filling the halls with the "Sound of Music." Having started the summer program July 5th, students are meeting twice a week to put on the "Getting to Know..." version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic. The performance will be August 11th at 10am.
Gloucester U also helped the Summer Drama Program have an extra special day this past Tuesday, July 19th. Not only did the group get to attend the North Shore Music Theatre's current production of Mary Poppins, but they also learned first hand about set design and set painting from Julia Lee, a working artist based in NYC.
The students had a blast trying to write with bamboo, testing different brush techniques, and even participating in the post-show talk back with the cast of Mary Poppins.
