If you've been wondering about the signs all over the place, Greg has a wonderful post...Steel Magnolias comes to LEH! (For those not from the area, that's Little Egg Harbor Township, off exit 58 on the Garden State Parkway).
You can't have missed the signs as you're driving about town!
Greg explains we've got our own local stars, and the best (drum roll please)...a portion of the net proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.
Take a read, it's fun for a cause in Little Egg Harbor,NJ!

The theater group assembled several years ago and began by putting on their debut production in the summer of 2006 with their own interpretation of the Gilbert and Sullivan play "Pirates of Penzance" with a local flair for America's 3rd port of Entry, Tuckerton titled "the Pirates of Tucker's Island". And, performed for its audience at the reconstructed Little Egg Harbor Lighthouse, aka Tucker's Lighthouse. The theater group has grown in experience and popularity with their performances of their productions of; The Boor, Taxi, Mornings at Seven, Dinner, Tony at the Heiress, Angel Street, Lend me a Tenor, Dracula, Love Letters, and Plaza Suite. They are yet another reason why the community calls itself "Little Treasure by the Bay".
