ALICE DEAL MIDDLE SCHOOL PRESENTS SHAKESPEARE'S "12th NIGHT"

March 5 & 6 at 6:30 PM at Alice Deal Middle School, Saturday Matinee on 3-7 at 2:00 PM
Adult tix -$12 - Students $5 and All Matinee Tickets are $5

Get your tickets in advance here.

Alice Deal Middle School is very proud to put on an annual Shakespeare play. This year we're doing 12th Night, one of Shakespeare's funniest comedies, and we have an incredible cast featuring 6th, 7th, and 8th graders from across the community. Come on out and cheer on your friends, family and former schoolmates. Here's a brief synopsis. Thanks for supporting student theater and Alice Deal.

Combine a shipwreck, a cross-dressed Lady, a lovelorn Lord, a fickle Countess, a drunken uncle, a flamboyant fop, an uptight servant, a mischievous clown, a protective pirate, an identical twin, and one pair of yellow stockings and what do you get? William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. A rich, romantic, lyrical, and funny story of longing and love.

Wilson Drama presents Peter and the Starcatcher March 13 and 14

A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

When: March 13 and 14 at 7 pm and March 14 matinee at 2 pm.

Where: Wilson High School Auditorium (enter on Chesapeake Street)

Tickets: Adults $15 (matinee $10). Child/Student/Staff $5 all performances.

Cash/checks only at the door. No online ticket sales. Tickets go on sale at 6 pm for the evening performances and 1 pm for the matinee.

Snacks available for sale before the show and during intermission.

Proposed WMATA Updates

Two weeks ago, as part of its annual budget proposal, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) proposed a series of cost-saving measures that would significantly reduce or alter current Metrobus stops and routes that serve our neighborhood.

WMATA's proposals include consolidating the E6 and M4, eliminating the stops from Pinehurst Circle to the McKinley and Broadbranch stop. We encourage all who are affected by these changes to submit their comments before the deadline on Monday, March 2 at 5 p.m. via WMATA's online survey.

WMATA's full budget proposal can be found on the WMATA website, and all of the proposed Metrobus service changes, including maps and alternative service options, for the District of Columbia are also available.
