Stephen Sondheim is a stalwart of American Musicals. A lyricist and composer, he is famous for musical classics like A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sweeney Todd, and Sunday in the Park with George. He contributed the lyrics for West Side Story.
Into the Woods was written in 1987, and had a fabulous run on Broadway featuring Bernadette Peters as the witch (played by Meryl Streep in the movie). Now 84 years old, he hasn’t quit writing. As of 2012, he was working on a relationship play tentatively titled All Together Now.
Like many of our theatrical masters, Stephen won’t be with us much longer. So enjoy his work while you can.

We all know that by supporting local businesses, we create a vibrant local economy even when the general economy is struggling. That’s because money spent locally turns over multiple times right here at home.
We also know that not everything we need or want is available locally, and if, for example, what we want is a book, there isn’t a bookstore in town.
Shopping on-line is convenient. You can shop in your pajamas, there are no lines, and no waiting. It’s sweet, but it can also make us feel a little guilty. This is where Amazon Smiles comes in. Amazon Smiles is a program that sends 0.5% of the money you spend on eligible items to a charity you designate.
Start by going to http://smile.amazon.com/
It will ask you to enter the name of a charity or location. When you enter Webster City or our Zip Code, you will see a list of eligible charities, and Help Entertain and Restore Organization is one of them. That’s us!
Once you select your charity, HERO and the Webster Theater will benefit from your purchases as long as you ENTER the Amazon website via smile.amazon.com.
You can either bookmark the Smile page, or if you use Chrome or Firefox, you can install a browser app to take you directly to the smile.amazon.com login page. Click Here to get the extension.
When you’re shopping on Amazon, and click on an item, you will see a notice just above the Add to Cart button that says, “Eligible for Amazon Smile Donation.” That way you know when your purchase will benefit us.
Please, shop local first, but when you can’t shop locally, consider shopping in a way that still benefits your local community. Thanks in advance for your support.

I received some feedback recently complaining because we don’t offer free refills on our large popcorn. Unfortunately, it was delivered via a pathway that doesn’t allow me to respond directly to the person with the complaint. But perhaps he isn’t the only one wondering about our decision not to offer free refills, so I thought…Continue Reading
