Weeping Water 14 and Under Softball Team Takes Third In Tournament
The Weeping Water girls 14 and under softball team traveled to Syracuse on Saturday and Sunday June 5th & 6th for their league tournament. Nine teams from the area competed in this tournament and our ladies faced tough competition from the other eight teams.
Weeping Water won all three games that they played on Saturday against Plattsmouth (8-0), Johnson-Brock (1-0), and Syracuse (6-1). They then headed into the semi-finals on Sunday facing Falls City. After a disappointing 3-2 loss in 2 extra innings, they went up against Syracuse again and lost 7-1. Falls City took home the championship trophy this year.
Congratulations Weeping Water on your great performance! Good luck in districts June 25-27.

Missoula Children's Theatre
Auditions for the Missoula Children's Theatre production of "King Arthur's Quest" will be held on Monday, June 14, 2010 from 10am to 12pm at the Lofte Community Theatre near Manley. There are roles for students entering 1st grade through 7th grade. There is no cost to participate in this production. Those wishing to audition must arrive by 10am and be prepared to stay for the whole two-hour session. The first rehearsal begins 15-30 minutes after auditions. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. This is a group audition. No advance preparation is necessary, but a smile always helps!
The first rehearsal will begin at approximately 12:30pm on Monday, right after auditions. Subsequent rehearsals will take place at the Lofte each day that week (through June 19) from 10am to 2:30pm. Although not all actors will be needed at each session, they should make sure they have a clear schedule for the entire week. It is important that each child attends ALL rehearsals required for their role. A detailed schedule for each child/role will be distributed after auditions.
The Missoula Children's Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. This year they will work with more than 65,000 children across the globe. Missoula's residency week at the Lofte Community Theatre is made possible by Home State Bank of Louisville.
The Lofte will hold two public performances on Saturday, June 19th, 2010. The first is at 3pm, the second at 6pm. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children under 12. More information about "King Arthur's Quest" can be found on the Lofte's website, www.Lofte.com.
