Annunciation School Shines Spotlight on Art and Music Programs

Annunciation School Shines Spotlight on Art and Music Programs

The arts are alive at Annunciation School in Elma, where students recently performed the annual spring school musical in front of a packed house. Guests were treated to a spectacular performance of “Aladdin” on March 31, starring members of the eighth grade class. Playing the lead roles were Daniel Bielli, Quinn Coughlin, Madeline Dake, Taylor Panaro, Luke Przybyla and Nicholas Tredo.

In addition to the annual spring musical, Annunciation students enjoy being creative in art class and showcasing their talents in music class. The school also offers a Christmas program, school choir/chorus, the Paul Effman Band Program, and a Drama Club and Reading Club.

Personal History: The Aurora Theatre

Personal History: The Aurora Theatre

by Kirke Rockwood

Visiting East Aurora this past October brought back many memories, especially of the Aurora Theatre.

We moved from Buffalo on Feb. 28, 1933, which happened to be my eighth birthday. I was immediately aware of the theater. In those days, the townspeople were very lucky as it was good entertainment during the Depression, and inexpensive. Tickets for children were just 15 cents and adults were 30. (Later during World War II, a tax increased them to 17 and 33 cents.)

The Dramatic Life of Margaret Fuller

The Dramatic Life of Margaret Fuller

Celebrate Women’s History Month by attending an original solo drama, "Men, Women, and Margaret Fuller," performed and written by actor/author Laurie James.   Based on journals, letters, articles and books, the play brings to life the bold character and words of an American foremother. The one-woman show will be staged at The 1891 Fredonia Opera House on Thursday, March 10 at 7 p.m.   There is an admission fee of $10/person, $6.50/students and seniors and groups of 20 or larger.  Tickets will be available at the door, or reserve in advance by calling the Opera House, (716) 679-1891.
