Join us at the Niles Public Library this Saturday (July 21) for a performance of an original play that has been written and produced by local teens! The Dinklebergs: Road Trip to Nowhere is a 30-minute comedy about a family road trip gone awry. Teenage hipster Brent introduces us to his quirky family: Mom’s obsessed with Twilight, his sister Melissa is obsessed with his best friend, Grandma and Grandpa (or Glozelle & Papa G, as they prefer to be called) refuse to act their age, and Dad doesn’t care about anything. Soon they’re stuck in the car on the way to a family reunion in far off Ar-Kan-Sas, and the GPS is acting a little strangely…
When: July 21, at 11:00am
Where: Large Meeting Room, 6960 W. Oakton St. Niles.
Rock out with Purple Apple at the Niles Public Library on June 29 at 7:30. Watch Purple Apple live in concert before they perform at the Lollapalooza Music Festival in August.
