The theatrical production of “Snow White” presented by Beach Nuts Theatre Company and Amigos de la Educación was a huge success. Every seat at the Tamarindo Diria amphitheater had a great view. Homemade desserts and beverages were sold to raise money for local education. The cast and crew did a great job: Flamingo resident Olivia Goodloe played the dwarf Happy, Surfside resident Avery Wilson was Bashful, and his sister Camyrn made a special appearance as a young lady in adoration of the handsome prince.
The Blues Fest at Oki Doki B&B Dec. 11 was an outstanding event with good music, friends, food and different vendors selling their wares. The same groups played again on Sunday night at Marie’s.
The nonprofit CEPIA had a great turnout for its Christmas Dream program and received a lot of donations for local kids. The group plans to deliver the gifts Thursday and Friday before closing its office for the holidays.
