5 Things to Know: Read Across America
Here's what you need to know to get your weekend started.
Today is Friday, March 1. Here are five things to know today in Peabody.
- Celebrate Seuss: National Read Across America Day will be celebrated today in Peabody at the Burke Elementary School where a panel of adults -- many of whom are city officials or educators -- will talk about why reading is such a great thing and then read some Dr. Seuss favorites in students' classrooms. The reading appreciation day is in honor Seuss' birthday.
- A festival of one act plays: Peabody's Cassie Trombley, a senior studying mass communication at Endicott College, will be among the student, alumni and faculty directors in a one-act play festival tonight (7:30-9:30 p.m.) at the college. Admission is $10. You can find more information on the festival here. And in other news, Trombley landed a paid internship last year with Country Music Television in Nashville, Tenn. You can read about her experiences here via the college newspaper.
- There's a beauty pageant tomorrow morning at the Holiday Inn. Read more about it here.
- DramaFest: Stage One, the drama club at Peabody High, will be performing in the preliminary round of the state DramaFest this Saturday at Marblehead High School. Stage One is performing "Night Train to Bolina" at 10 a.m. and the state champs are eager to repeat. A preview of the play was performed at PVMHS prior to February vacation week. Tickets are $10 and only available at the door. Marblehead High is located at 217 Pleasant St. in Marblehead. Covenant Christian Academy will also perform "Super Hero Sanitarium" at Marblehead High on Saturday at 3 p.m.
