River Creek Blog: ‘Mary Poppins’

River Hawk Productions at Belmont Ridge Middle School will be dipping into Broadway and movie history by performing the musical “Mary Poppins” this spring. Organizers say River Hawk “will bring a spoonful of sugar and a whole lot of fun to audiences.” The show will open at Belmont Middle School on March 24 at 7 p.m. and will continue on March 25 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Look for more dates and tickets at LCPS.org/tickets.

River Hawk Productions is under the leadership of executive director and choreographer Jason Paul Augustowski. “The directors and producers are so excited to see these incredible middle schoolers bring P.L. Traver’s magical story to life,” Augustowski said.

A Toast for Loudoun Museum

The Loudoun Museum will be celebrating its 50 anniversary this year. The River Creek Club will be the host for an occasion to honor the museum on March 25 from 5:30-9:30 p.m. at the clubhouse. As a Martinis Matter event, those attending can sample a bit of history by purchasing and imbibing the signature martini, Lord Loudoun, at a cost of $10 —half of which will be donated to the Loudoun Museum. Should your tastes run otherwise there will be a number of other beverages both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Fund raising opportunities extend to a silent auction and a special event museum membership. A membership with the Loudoun Museum offers an extended blend of history that envelopes Loudoun County. You can find out more by at Loudounmuseum.org.

As an added feature, entertainment will be on hand in the form of guitarist Deane Kern with his “repertoire of rock, folk and blues.”

River Creek resident Anne Flam is spearheading this event. She has been working with Liz Whiting, the museum trustee president, who will be attending. Flam says, “We are so fortunate to live in a county steeped in history and progress. Loudoun Museum preserves and teaches this history to residents and visitors alike, through its exhibits, special programs and online resources.”

Members and guests are welcome to this free event.
