Sport produces great human drama and there is no

Hall of Fame football coach, Vince Lombardi,
unquestionably one of the most inspirational and 
quotable personalities of all time.  Though football's
Super Bowl Trophyis named for him, few know the 
real story of Lombardi the man--his inspirations, his
passions and his ability to drive people to achieve
what they never thought possible.  Based on the book,
When Pride Still Mattered--a Life of Vince Lombardi
written by David Maraniss. 

Performance dates are:  
February 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, & 21 of 2016.

Something's Afoot
Location: Spencer Community Theatre

The final stage performance for the 56th
Season of Spencer Community Theatre will be
Something's Afoot by James McDonald, 
David Vos, and Robert Gerlach.
This is a zany entertaining musical that takes 
a satirical poke at Agatha Christie mysteries
with a specific nod to her Ten Little Indians. 
Ten people are stranded in an isolated English
country house during a raging thunderstorm.
One by one they're picked off by cleverly
fiendish devices.  As the bodies pile up in 
the library, the survivors frantically race to 
uncover the identity and motivation of the 
cunning culprit.

Performance dates are:
April 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30 and May 1, 2016.
Evening performances are at 7:30pm and 
Sundays at 2pm.

For more information, contact the SCT
Box Office at 712-262-7336.

a way that grabs the listener and makes them
want more.
