Message From Fremont Highway Commissioner, Alicia Dodd

Please keep kids out of roadside snow piles. Hurting a child while pushing back snow is every snow plow driver’s worst nightmare. Playing in snow piles after the roads are clear can be risky too—as snow accumulates, we may need to move piles to create space for additional snow and improve visibility.

The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940

By John Bishop

February 4 at 3:45 pm

Understudy Performance – February 5 at 2 pm.

The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious "Stage Door Slasher") assemble for a backer's audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy "angel." The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people- all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem that follows when the infamous "slasher" makes his reappearance and strikes again.
