November 24 to December 23-‘She Loves Me’-At The Wick TheaterShe Loves Me is a euphoric romantic comedy with a soaring score. Amalia and George work together at a modest Hungarian parfurmerie, and have disliked each other from the very beginning. He thinks she’s stuck up, and she thinks he’s arrogant and mean. But each rapturously writes to a lonely hearts pen pal when the work day is done, and it doesn’t take long for the audience to see that they’re in love without realizing it. Inevitably through some of the most iconic songs in the musical theatre canon (Vanilla Ice Cream, She Loves Me, Will He Like Me?), George and Amalia discover the truth as well and rejoice in their love for each other at the story’s sweet and musically delightful conclusion. The play runs until December 23 with performances Wednesday- Sunday; Located at 7901 North Federal Highway – Boca Raton, FL 33487; For tickets call the box office at 561-995-2333 or visit www.TheWick.org

PROTECT THE DOLPHINS

NEWS:  A UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFT: “ADOPT A WILD DOLPHIN”

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: harzen@nulltaras.org or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen@nullTaras.org or 561-762-6473
