We are pleased to introduce Eagle Cleaners as our newest Harris Whalen member!

Mike & Darlene Micciche have been the owners of Eagle Cleaners since its inception in 1995. Since then, Eagle Cleaners has had a simple goal, to distinguish ourselves from the competition by providing the best possible garment care and outstanding customer service. Quality, Service and Value is our core foundation and we live by it at Eagle and as our staff says, “it’s because we care.”

As an Eagle customer, you can expect your clothes will be treated by the most knowledgeable, professional and caring staff in the area. They care, and their pride shows in every garment they handle. We are also a select GreenEarth cleaning provider, the most advanced sustainable dry cleaning system in the industry. Your clothes are cleaned in an eco-friendly, odor free, non-toxic cleaning solution. Better for you, your clothes, our employees and our planet. See for yourself and check them out here!

The Penfield Players’ spring show, Art of Murder, by Joe DiPietro, opens on Friday, April 29 for seven performances. Directed by Mary Ellen Blanchard of Brighton, Art of Murder is the story of an art dealer, his disgruntled client, his client’s wife, and their housekeeper.

Set in the sitting room of a Connecticut country estate, no one is as they seem in this play that combines mystery with a healthy dose of comedy. DiPietro’s Art of Murder won the 2000 Edgar Award for Best Mystery Play, an honor bestowed by the Mystery Writers of America, and he is the author of one of Penfield Players’ most popular productions, Over the River and Through the Woods.

The cast features:
Doug Curry (Rochester) as Vincent, the art dealer; Devon Harris (Greece) as Jack Brooks, the art dealer’s client; Kelli Hobins (Penfield) as Annie Brooks, Jack’s wife; and Shawnda Urie (Irondequoit) as Kate, the Brooks’ housekeeper.

“Expect to be surprised and entertained,” says Blanchard. “Full of twists and turns, we expect this play will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.”
