A dramatic one-act adaptation by Bob Rini of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" will be performed by the Stage Actors' Workshop at The Freemason Hall Theater, 525 North Illinois Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. Masons and their families will be admitted free. Donations will be accepted for the Indiana Masonic Temple Association Building fund.

Call the Workshop at 634-9063 for information, directions, and reservations.

The Workshop’s stage adaptation of the Charles Dickens’ holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol” was inspired from the original novel. The well known scenes portraying all the characters are included to tell the story of the miserly employer who comes to understand the spirit of Christmas with the help of some spiritual intervention.

The Workshop’s one-act adaptation is followed, by a holiday variety show. Cast members sing, tell holiday stories, reminisce about personal holiday experiences, and along the way invite audience participation. The Stage Actors’ Workshop considers their Holiday show to be the highlight of their performance season.

The Stage Actors' Workshop is a not-for-profit community theater acting company comprised of talented people who do theater for the love of it. Their mission is to bring to the public live stage shows that are entertaining and educational at a cost that will not break the family budget. Children 16 years-old and younger are always admitted free with a paying adult. Bob Rini has served as the company’s artistic director since its inception in 1998. They offer affordable acting classes for adults and children. More information may be obtained by e-mailing them at saw_theater@yahoo.com

IMTA acquires new ice machine for main kitchen

The small ice machine that had been used for a number of years died about three weeks ago, and the Board voted to replace it with a new Manitowoc machine capable of making 215 pounds of ice every 24 hours. The machine can store 80 pounds of ice at any given time. It was professionally installed for us on Monday.

A member of Logan Lodge who prefers to remain anonymous (sure, whatever, Freddie) dispenses some of the first ice from the machine for Logan's stated meeting dinner last night:

With proper maintenance and regular cleaning, this new machine should last many years.

The article is also online here. A beautiful photo of the auditorium can be found in the accompanying multimedia section, here.
