To entertain or to be entertained
(Page 3 of 3)

John Blenn and SallyAnn Esposito, who have known each other since their days of working at Sam Goody at the Green Acres Mall, have teamed up to bring several new arts and entertainment classes to the Valley Stream Community Center.

One of the local performers will be Hannah DeLeon, who graduated from Valley Stream North High School in 2009. She used to take part in the Central High School District’s summer theater program, did backyard productions with her friends for many years, and studied acting in college.

DeLeon said she likes having a theater program in the neighborhood. She performed in Blenn’s production of “X’s and O’s” in the courtroom in June, and has also done “American Dating Catastrophes” in Bellmore and East Meadow.

The village courtroom will eventually be moving to Rockaway Avenue, and Fare said the current court facility would be turned into a theater. Money raised from this month’s production will be used toward future renovations.

Blenn said he envisions the theater being used for both local theater productions and performances by internationally known artists.

The cost for each of Blenn’s courses is $200. Tickets for the play are $15 in advance, with a discount available for senior citizens. For more information about these programs, call Esposito at (516) 506-1989 or stop by the Community Center.
