Easy Street founders to share memories
Easy Street Productions’ founders Todd Hancock and Maureen Collins will share “Memories of a Lifetime” at the William Holmes McGuffey Historical Society community engagement program series, which is open to the public. The event will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday at Kravitz’s Deli Meeting Room, 3135 Belmont Ave. Admission is $5, and light refreshments will be served. Entertainment will be by Dolores DePietro, and a 50-50 raffle will take place to benefit the society’s education mission. Reservations are suggested, and walk-ins are welcome.
Easy Street Productions has produced many sellout performances of family-centered musicals. Hancock has been in many of the area’s most successful musicals. He was in “Pump Boys and Dinettes” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at Powers Auditorium last May. Collins has had the opportunity to work with a large number of talented young people in our valley in “101 Dalmatians,” “Monster Mash Bash,” and others.
Easy Street began a new chapter recently, by forming exciting collaborations, with the Youngstown Symphony Society by moving upstairs into the DeYor Performing Arts Center’s Adler Arts Academy, to expand their Little Rascal Musical Theater Workshops, with classes and shows for children of all ages. For information or to make reservations, call Richard S. Scarsella, WHMHS chairperson, at 330-726-8277.
