Tickets for remaining Summer Theater shows are selling fast

To The Daily Sun,

Had my opportunity to see "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" over this past weekend and what a superb performance it was! I can really sun it up in one word: PHENOMENAL! The music, singing and dancing were exactly what I've come to expect from ILST, that being a wonderfully entertaining experience with outstanding performances by a great company.

This is the 10th Anniversary Season at ILST, and they have put together an outstanding series of musical theatre. You still have an opportunity to see three shows this season, and these are blockbusters: the music and magic of "South Pacific" beginning July 19 running through July 30; the music, dancing and joy of "Cats," beginning August 2 running through August 13; and the music and dancing of "Gypsy," beginning August 16 running through August 20.

Tickets for these three remaining shows held at the newly refurbished Inter-Lakes High School in Meredith are selling fast. You don't want to be left out! To purchase tickets, call the box office at 1-603-707-6035 Monday through Saturday at 9:00 am and Sunday at noon; or you can go to Interlakestheatre.com and place your order.

Meredith has indeed been fortunate over the past 10 years to have been home to ILST and this is an opportunity to say thank you to Nancy Barry, producing director, and to all those involved in the hard work of bringing quality musical theatre to the Lakes Region, shows such as "Anything Goes," "Grease," "Chicago," "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "West Side Story," "Footloose" and so many more.

I hope Nancy Barry and all involved in this outstanding organization bring us another ten years of musical theatre to the Lakes Region beginning in 2018. Their work should never be taken for granted!

World is watching & listening to us, let's show we have character

To The Daily Sun,

Respect has to be earned. We all want it for ourselves and our nation. It seems we have lost the respect of the rest of the world.

Respect is defined as "being decent or correct in character or behavior." Are we displaying character by ignoring the health care needs of families, veterans, the elderly and others? Are we showing character or deserving respect by pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement? If we don't respect our planet, why should we deserve respect as nation? It is obvious from recent events in Germany and elsewhere that the U.S. has lost the respect of the world.

Our president, our government and their actions speak for all of us. The world is watching and listening. Please, encourage our N.H. congressional delegation to show character and say, "We do care about the needs of our fellow citizens and our planet." Tell them that we, as citizens of the United States of America, will show character and that we still deserve the RESPECT we used to have.
