Consecutive packed houses greeted children from the MPB Player’s production of the sixties play, Everything’s Groovy held Thursday and Friday night on the stage in gymnasium of the Hazleton One Community Center. Twenty six children in grades 2 through 8 from several schools in the area filled every role in the play.
“We have a wonderful mix of children from all area of the region, all ages and all ethnic backgrounds,” said Judiann McGrogan, the show’s producer. “We all had a great time putting the play together. It has truly been a joy to watch the children learn about theater and make new friends at the same time.”
Eugenio Sosa, Executive Director of the Hazleton One Community Center, said, “We are particularly happy to be working with the MPB Players again in the building where they started, and we hope to have many more collaborations with them in the upcoming years.”

CTC: Together We Can

 Our Youth Outreach members: Communities that Care (CTC) created and painted a mural with the guidance of artists Jason Braun. All that were involved worked numerous hours to accomplish this beautiful peace of art, that just by looking at it inspires unity and acceptance. Our HOPE is that from this mural many more can be created around Hazleton, so that everytime "Hazletonians" take a look at one they feel unified and not alone. Thank you CTC members, and Thank you Jason Braun!
