The HHS Drama Club will be presenting the musical “13.” With an unforgettable rock score from TONY Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, (Bridges of Madison County, Parade, and the Last Five Years), 13 is a musical about fitting in—or standing out. The stories that come to life are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless.

Fortune and Glory

First, allow myself to introduce.. myself. My name is Shannon Weidman and I am a volunteer/poster designer/board member/movie lover at the 7th Street Theatre. My involvement with the 7th Street Theatre began with my childhood hero, Indiana Jones.

I have always enjoyed the old time atmosphere of the theatre but my appreciation for it really picked up in September, 2008 when I found out that the 7th Street Theatre was showing “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. I was super excited to see it on the big screen for the first time in many years. You see, when I was a little boy I used to pretend that I was Indiana Jones and I was even the proud owner of an officially licensed Indiana Jones hat. (I’m pretty sure I wore out the garage door by constantly hitting the button, running through the garage, and rolling underneath the door as it closed.) Since I had successfully imparted my love for the Indiana Jones series on my son, I brought him along to the theatre and (of course) had him dress up in his Indy costume. We had a wonderful time and I was hooked on the theatre. He even brought home a souvenir T-Shirt.

We had such a good time that the next time the theatre showed an Indiana Jones movie (Raiders of the Lost Ark in 2012) we went again. This time I brought my daughter too and we all dressed up (big Indy, little Indy, and Marion).
Fast forward to March, 2015 and the theatre completed the original Indiana Jones trilogy by showing “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”. This time around I posed as Indy, my son reprised his role as “little Indy” and my friend Rick dressed as the evil Mola Ram. We posed for pictures with movie patrons and had a great time.
Those first experiences were so fun that I wanted to get more involved with the theatre so I volunteered to help make a movie poster for one of the theatre’s movies (Poltergiest – if you ever see the poster try to see the 3d image in the TV screen!). Then I made a few more movie posters.. then I joined the volunteer group selling tickets and concessions, then I joined the movie selection committee, the Hot August Frights committee, and finally the Board of Directors. It all started when my son and I went to watch our favorite movie at a beautiful old theatre. So come on out, bring the kids, and make some memories.
