Called “the funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.

Thursday, February 25th

Friday, February 26th

Saturday, February 27th

Thursday, March 4th

Friday, March 5th

and Saturday, March 6th.

All shows are at 7 PM.

Be sure to include the following information: Name, date of the show, and the number of seats needed. We are selling seats in 2, 3, and 4 person blocks for social distancing purposes and have a limited capacity, so get your tickets now! You won't want to miss your chance to see this hilarious, chaotic farce!

Nutrition Services Shout Out - Monica Peyton and the CVE Nutrition Services Crew

Big picture
This week's shout out goes to Monica Peyton at Cactus Valley Elementary. She and her staff helped out when Elk Creek needed help. The Elk Creek kitchen staff had to go into quarantine and the CVE staff came to help. Monica and Jennifer helped out while Stephanie of course held down the fort at CVE, and we got through, and ECE Principal Ryan Fideldy was very happy.

So this week's shout out goes to the Cactus Valley kitchen crew for helping us make it through.
