Comedy Improv Returns To Northwood Theater Workshop

Comedy Improv returns to the Northwood Theater Workshop on Saturday,  April 25 at 8 p.m. with a show by “Random Acts Of Senseless Theater.”

Specializing in “Whose Line” style shows, RANDOM ACTS performs improvisational comedy based around a diverse list of both musical and non-musical improv games in which the content is derived from the audience’s written or shouted suggestions.

Made up of seasoned stage veterans, professional musicians and actors, the troupe has been performing improv together since 2005, usually to sold out audiences.

Tickets are $12 and can be reserved by calling NTW’s ticket line at (603) 339-2080. Reservations are recommended. This is a BYOB event, and light snacks will be available. Due to the unpredictable nature of comedy improv, this show is recommended for mature audiences.

Northwood Food Pantry Reaches Out for Support

The Northwood Emergency Food Pantry (NEFP) is reaching out to the community for support due to the unusually high demand for food and related supplies over this past winter. The food pantry been very busy over the past year and is at a point of need for both food and monetary donations. Many of the people who have been served include those who are unemployed or recently lost a job, people with serious medical problems, and people on fixed incomes unable to meet their basic needs.  Formed in the early 1980’s, the pantry has been able to continue to provide this service due to the generous support of many individuals and organizations throughout Northwood. At this time the food pantry is seeking assistance so that the work of local food distribution may continue. It has been the hope of NEFP that no child or adult in the community would be without needed food or basic health supplies. All donations, of any size, are greatly appreciated. If you would like to donate food or a monetary contribution to your local food pantry, please contact Food Pantry Coordinator Pat Jacobsmeyer at 942-8912.
