Theater, Music, Career Oppotunities, Hazardous Waste and More

Barrymore Award recommended!
The usual weekly events can be found on the Town and Norristown Project Calendars (links to these to these in the righthand column). Below are the special events for the week.

Tonight from 6:30 to 8 pm, Beagle Tavern (1003 East Main) is hosting a Montco Marriage Equality Toast. Come celebrate. (21+ only).

You can still get tickets for tonight's 8 pm performance of "Hitchcock's The 39 Steps" at Theatre Horizon (DeKalb and Penn Sts.). That's saying a lot because Saturday's 8 pm and Sunday's 2 pm shows are SOLD OUT. They've added a 7 pm show Sunday (June 1). After that there are only 5 more chances to see the play (which has earned a recommendation for the 2014 Barrymore Awards): Monday at 7:30, a Wednesday matinee at 1:30 pm, next Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and next Sunday (June 8) at 2 pm. Tickets range: $20-31. See the Theatre Horizon website for information or call 610-283-2230.

Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm, Montgomery County will be collecting household hazardous waste at Norristown Area High School. Items you should bring: gasoline, oil, kerosene, turpentine, paint thinner, oil paint, stains, varnish, pool chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, antifreeze, caustic cleaners and solvents, mercury, thermometers, flares, fire extinguishers, lead acid batteries, rechargeable batteries, fluorescent tube light bulbs, and CFL bulbs. For complete information, go to the Montco website for the event. An Electronics Collection event is scheduled for next Saturday, June 7, same location. Info about that next week.

Sunday morning from 10:30 am to 1 pm, Coffee Talk (507 W Marshall) will host an Open Mic. This will continue the first Sunday of each month. Donation $5.

Sunday at 6 pm, Elmwood Park Zoo is hosting "Say I Do at the Zoo" wedding showcase, a bridal expo  with dozens of local vendors. Admission is a suggestion donation of $5 and includes hor d'oeuvres and 2 drinks per person (21+ only). Go to to RSVP and for a list of vendors.

Sunday night at 7 pm: Summer Concert Series presents Dean Garofolo (Elvis), at Elmwood Park bandshell. Sponsored by The Arcadia Foundation. Food/drinks available at the snack stand. Any questions call 610-270-0467.

The Community Meeting scheduled at Jus Java for Monday evening has been cancelled.
Tuesday from 9 am to 1 pm, there will be a MEGA Manufacturing Youth Summit for high school juniors and seniors at the Montgomery County Community College Science Center Auditorium. This seminar will encouraged teens to consider a career in manufacturing by letting them know what the industry has to offer. Registration is a must. Contact Carol Kelly NOW at .

Tuesday at 7:30 in Municipal Hall, Municipal Council meeting. No agenda yet.

Thursday from 11 am to 4 pm, the Norristown Farmer's Market starts up again on East Main, in front of Montgomery County Courthouse. Hosted by CADCOMM. A few people last year told me they were turned away because they were told this was only for those with very low income. I was recently told this was not supposed to be the case. If anyone goes, please let me know what the deal is.

"The Fantasticks" opens next Friday, June 6th, at the Centre Theater (208 DeKalb) with an 8 pm performance. I'll have more info next week, but in the meantime, you can go to for ticket information.
