PLYMOUTH — Be ready to laugh until your sides hurt when comedienne, actress, singer Sandra Bernhard brings her one-of-a-kind show, Sandyland, to the Hanaway Theatre at the PSU Silver Center at 8 p.m. April 25.
Bernhard's live performances are a raucous mix of political satire, pop culture commentary theatre, rock'n'roll and stand-up with a little burlesque and cabaret. Her brilliant unity of hilarious diatribes on the state of modern culture burns smart without loosing all the energy of youth.
Always entertaining, Bernhard has been wowing, and sometimes shocking, audiences since starting her career at LA's famed Comedy Store in the 1970s, going on to become a favorite on the live-show comedy circuit nationally, while also forging a career in film, television and on Broadway.
The stage and screen comic diva broke into the film industry in the Martin Scorsese film The King of Comedy and later became known for her television role on Roseanne as Nancy Bartlett, an openly lesbian character. She has also appeared on Hot in Cleveland, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Law & Order:SVU, Will & Grace, The Sopranos and The L Word.
After a five-night sold-out run at New York City's famed Joe's Pub over New Year's 2013, a New York Times reviewer said of Bernhard, "Just below the surface, you sense the same roving critical eye that misses nothing."
Tickets for Sandyland are $35-30 for adults and $33-28 at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869. Tickets are also available online at silver.plymouth.edu.
Due to mature language and subject matter, SandyLand is recommended for adults only.

MEREDITH — A few of the Inter Lakes Senior class officers assisted Mrs. Jamie Edge, School Outreach Counselor, in drawing the winners of the "Best Raffle Ever". The raffle was sponsored by the I-L After Prom Parents Committee to raise funds for the upcoming chem-free event, which will follow the Senior prom in May.
The lucky recipients are: Nancy Sapack winner of the stay at Mill Falls, Susan Lirakis will receive the Apple ipad, and Mary Mailand was the lucky winner of the $750 Best Buy gift card.
"The chem-free after prom was started years ago as a way to keep our kids safe. There tends to be a lot of fatal accidents around this time due to prom parties with alcohol and other drugs. We wanted to allow our kids to have fun in a safe environment and have a memorable time with their friends. This is a great way for parents and kids to come together senior year and have fun. We are always looking for positive experiences for our kids where there is no alcohol and/or drugs present", said Mrs. Edge.
Parents of the I-L Class of 2014, are planning a full night of fun, friends, food, festivities, prizes and memories! Proceeds from the raffle along with many donations received from area businesses, will help to make this event a success.
Those interested in making a donation or providing a prize for this event can contact 279-9912 or donations can be mailed to ILHS After-Prom, 1 Laker Lane, Meredith, NH 03253.

GILFORD — The start of the eight week Pub Mania Shuffle Spring Series, a 2 1/2 mile fun run/walk every Wednesday will begin on April 23 at 6 p.m. The course begins at Patrick’s parking lot in Gilford and meanders over and through the Meadowbrook property before looping back to Patrick’s.
Created as a fundraising event for the Patrick’s Pub Mania event and the WLNH Children’s Auction, the Shuffle has similar intentions as the Pub Mania event itself.
“This is about participating, having fun and making an impact in our community” explains Patrick’s co-owner Allan Beetle and Pub Mania Head Referee. “It’s a unique way to be part of this great event while getting outside for some exercise and fun”.
Organizers stress that the Mania Shuffle is not designed to be a competitive event. The $10 entry fee will be donated to the Pub Mania team of your choice and includes a complimentary beverage and chance to win in a post-shuffle raffle. Participants are encouraged to arrive 20 minutes before the walk begins to register. All of the proceeds of the Mania Shuffle will pass through to the WLNH Children’s Auction and on to children, families and programs here in the Lakes Region.
