Take a trip to ‘Nocturne Falls’ for oddball fun

February 19th, 2016

If you want to trek to a land of hilarious, oddball fun, hit the trails to “Nocturne Falls” tomorrow night at the Establishment Theater. The show is one of Comedy Sportz’ regular after-hours studio series gigs, a slate of shorter performances with an R-rated slant that hit different distinct audiences, but have one thing in common – they’re all unique, hilarious and improvisational fun. “Nocturne” is part “Twin Peaks,” part Mayberry, part Weekly World News. It’s set in the town of the same name, and the show involves a group of its residents, each chatting, in monologues and... Read More

‘Moon’ a charming comedy of errors

February 19th, 2016

District Theater’s “Moon Over Buffalo” is a charming trifle, a comedy of errors and misunderstandings and ensuing hijinks made most entertaining by the goofy performances of its cast, particularly its leads. It’s infectious fun, a “Three’s Company” episode writ large, fluffy and ephemeral but a sweet escapism. Written by Ken Ludwig, “Moon” rises with the setting suns of two fading stars of stage, Charlotte (Nancy Sheesley Teerlinck) and George (Michael Kelly), who are attempting to keep up with the rising medium of film and failing miserably. Distressed and salty over being passed... Read More

There are jokes for all different kinds of fandoms in here, and if you are passionate about anything related to geek culture,... Read More

Tickets are $50 each and... Read More

‘Moon’ rises over District to start 2016 season

February 11th, 2016

Anyone who has been involved in a play knows that the story backstage is sometimes more compelling than the one being presented on. In the case of “Moon Over Buffalo,” the lines are blurred to hilarious effect. The District Theatre opens its 2016 season with Ken Ludwig’s popular backstage farce, and District owner and creative director Tristan Tapscott is chuffed with the choice. “This has been one of my favorites for years. I’m always obsessed with what happens behind the scenes and this is two hours of it!” Tapscott said. “It’s hysterical but also full of heart! We all... Read More

At this year’s Super Bowl parties, one of the hottest food items is going to be a “souper bowl.” “What’s really hot this year is multiple soups, with people bringing different soups, one person brings a lobster bisque, another brings a chicken noodle, and so on, and the host provides the bowls and the extras,” said Chef Bradley Scott, Director of the Culinary Arts and Hospitality program at Scott Community College. “That’s one of the most popular trends I’m seeing this year.” At any Super Bowl party, regardless of which team on TV hoists the championship trophy, the real winners... Read More

Beat the Cold: Escape Winter Today!

January 31st, 2016

We can usually tell if we get an early and lasting snowfall or cold snap, that travel will increase in January or February. This year, due to the mild temps (until just recently) we noticed that there wasn’t the normal “mass exodus” to warmer climates by air. However, now that we’ve experienced the below freezing temps for the past few weeks, we know that travel to the warmer destinations, such as the Florida cities and Phoenix-Mesa on Allegiant, for instance, will be filled. Sometimes, people do wait until the bad weather hits and they finally will book and get out of town. It’s never... Read More
