    5. “Doubt” at Haines City Community Theater
      7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      Ah, the best laid plans . . .
      Haines City Community Theater had planned to present a play titled Ravenscroft as their April production. However, due to unforeseen circumstances that production has been replaced by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Doubt, written by John Patrick Shanley.
      It’s a drama from which the subject matter could be taken directly from news stories of the recent past. In this brilliant and powerful drama, Sister Aloysius, a Bronx school principal, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects Father Flynn of improper relations with one of the male students. The play is set in 1964, and takes place mostly in the offices of a Catholic school. Questions arise. Has the sister overstepped her authority? Is she reading too much into the situation? Is Father Flynn guilty? There is much to “Doubt” and the audience is left to draw their own conclusions. The play will be presented on Saturday evenings at 7:30 and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 from April 14th through the 29th. Please call (863) 421-1893 for reservations.
      The cast is comprised of Dorinda Garrard as Sister Aloysius, Curt Whirl as Father Flynn, Rose Cambron as Mrs. Muller, and Alicia Bush as Sister James; and is directed by Jeanette Hughes.

    1. Ovarian Cancer Support Group
      5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

      Ovarian Cancer Support Group of Polk is our name but we are here for all surrounding counties. The group was formed to support, encourage, empower & provide a place where women and their caregivers can express their fears, concerns and treatments.
      Ovarian cancer does not have the amount of following or support as breast cancer; however the mortality rate is much higher. This leaves ovarian cancer fighters feeling hopeless and alone. Our goal as a group is to get the word out that they are not alone and provide awareness to the community about this “silent killer” while supporting our warrior sisters in the battle for their lives.
      Our meetings are held the last Monday of each month at Watson Clinic Cancer Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m. with guest speakers, light refreshments and high energy.
      We can be reached at ovcas2015@gmail.com or our Facebook page Ovarian Cancer Support Group of Polk Fl.
