On May 4 and 5, Carlisle Cub Scout Pack 135 camped out on the USS Massachusetts battleship at Battleship Cove in Fall River. The Cub Scouts slept on canvas bunks in the crew’s quarters and ate dinner and breakfast in the crew’s mess. The Battleship Cove staff taught the campers about the role of the USS Massachusetts in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters during World War II. The Cub Scouts and their parents were able to tour nearly all areas of the ship, including the 16-inch gun turrets, engine room and exterior deck. The USS Joseph P. Kennedy destroyer and USS Lionfish submarine were also open for tours.

The troop combined profits from their Girl Scout cookie sales with funds from troop member Avery D’Arienzo’s personal fundraising efforts to buy party supplies, including themed paper plates, napkins, tablecloths and candles. The troop members earned the Girl Scout’s “Give Back” badge for their charitable efforts.

Come see Carlisle residents perform an original musical! This season, Concord Youth Theatre’s Mainstage Company took on an exciting challenge, creating a devised theater project called Broadway Underground. Forty-one performers in grades 4 through 12 used brainstorming, writing, and improvisation to develop a show all their own. Come watch them perform a musical that emerged from themes of importance to the actors, and grew under the guidance of CYT Artistic Director Lisa Evans. Broadway Underground features several short plays, ranging from riotous to touching. These stories offer a glimpse into the minds of this creative group of young people. The show will also feature original, powerful, and fun music by CYT Music Director Rene Pfister.
The show will run at Carlisle Public School, Corey Auditorium, 83 School Street in Carlisle, on Friday, May 17th at 8 p.m., Saturday, May 18th at 4 p.m., and Sunday May 19th at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available at https://www.ticketstage.com/T/CYT or by phone at 1-978-371-1482.
