    Vonia and Sonya and Masha and Spike

    8pTrustus Theatre 520 Lady Street - The Vista

    ONE OF BROADWAY'S MOST HILARIOUS MODERN SHOWS COMES TO THE THIGPEN MAIN STAGE!

    Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is a hilarious adaptation of Chekhov themes (that doesn't require familiarity with Chekhov).

    6th Annual Long's Five Points Barstool Classic

    5pFive Points

    The 6th Annual Bar Stool Classic in Five Points. All proceeds from this event benefit the Babcock Center Foundation. The Bar Stool Classic was born out of the desire to increase community awareness of the Babcock Center and their mission to support people with lifelong disabilities.

    In 2009, the Five Points Association and the Babcock Center Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Babcock Center, hosted the first Bar Stool Classic with much success. The 9-hole putt-putt tournament attracted over 100 people in its first year and a great time was had by all. It attracted a group of people as varied as the patrons of Five Points, from college students in their best golf attire to couples in their 60’s. The event was deemed a success and the planners began looking to the next year. In 2012, the event sold out at registration and hosted over 400 patrons. Now in its 6th year, the Bar Stool Classic is a much anticipated annual event.

     This year, it's a 10-hole putt-putt tournament (including second chance hole) and after party immediately following with live music at Jake's!
