Stage West adds performance of musical 'Chicago'


Popular demand brings additional 'Chicago' staging

Stage West Community Playhouse has added a performance of the musical Chicago at 2 p.m. Saturday at the theater, 8390 Forest Oaks Blvd., Spring Hill. There was a waiting list of 65 people who wanted tickets for last Saturday night's performance, but the house was sold out, said Paulette Hess, production coordinator. Because of that and the number of calls for tickets still coming in, the board of directors voted to do the extra performance of the show, she said. Other performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday, but those shows are mostly sold out. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Thursday and Saturday and an hour before each performance. Call (352) 683-5113.

Tobacco cessation advocate to speak

A meeting of Tobacco Free Hernando will take place at 4 p.m. today at the Hernando County Health Department, 7465 Forest Oaks Blvd. The speaker will be William Cousins, a tobacco prevention and cessation advocate who lost his young son to tobacco use. For information, call Ann-Gayl Ellis at (352) 540-6817 or Tresa Watson at (352) 596-8000.


• Craig Quirolo, founder of Reef Relief, will speak at Green World Path on Thursday. Because of incorrect information supplied to the newspaper, Quirolo's title was wrong in Saturday's Business Digest.

• A community dance will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the High Point Community Center, High Point. Tickets are $5. For information, call (352) 596-2827. The wrong phone number was listed in Sunday's Events column.
