IN OUR COMMUNITY
As part of its year-long celebration of the city's 125th birthday, the city is hosting free performances of "An Evening With Simeon West." The performances are scheduled for April 5-6 at the Theater Courts Building. Seating is limited.
The City of Deer Park would like to cordially invite all citizens to a special performance of “An Evening with Simeon West, Celebrating 125 Years of Deer Park.”
While admission is free, there are only a limited amount of seats left for Wednesday, April 5 and Thursday, April 6, so call the Art Park Players box office today to reserve your spot!
Each evening, the reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 6 p.m.
“We are so looking forward to sharing ‘An Evening with Simeon West’ with our citizens,” City Manager Jay Stokes said. “The cast consists of a lot of the City’s elected officials, administrators and staff members, as well as Deer Park Chamber of Commerce members and staff.
“Many of the cast have never participated in a production like this before. This is going to be a very fun event, and we hope our community will come participate with us!”
“An Evening with Simeon West” – written in honor of the 125th anniversary of the City by Lisa C. Bunse – is a whimsical musical review of Simeon West and the founding of Deer Park.
Stokes said Susan Mele - Art Park Players Theater Supervisor – is preparing the group to put on a professional-caliber performance, featuring song and dance as well as insight into the founding and history of Deer Park.
“Our audiences won’t be walking into a regular history lesson – they’ll be engaged in what will certainly be a fun, exciting evening for everyone,” Mele said. “The individuals volunteering their time to be part of this production are taking part in a true labor of love – they are passionate about this community and telling our story.”
