Excitement is escalating as the cast rehearses and preparations are made
in anticipation of the upcoming February production of Woman from the Town, a play written by a native North Carolinian, Samm-Art Williams, for three performances as part of the area’s Black History Month celebrations. Directed by Hector Garza, professor in the East Carolina University’s School of Theater and Dance, the cast showcases a cast of six. Synopsis: Lila comes back to the town to exact revenge. What she finds instead is redemption. She finds her humanity. Lila learns how to let go of the past so that she can move on with her life.
Cast Members include: Kristina Janay Brickey, Brandesha I.M. Whorley, Amy Staton, Daure Stinson, Regina Epps, and Gene Mills. A brief talk-back is scheduled following the February 9th show to discuss the plight of the NC farmer with local Eastern North Carolina farmer, Melvin Huggins, and invited representatives from the NC Land Loss Project, Pitt Water District, and the Black Family Land Trust.
Show dates are:
Friday, February 7 at 7:30pm

You know the joy and excitement you feel while watching loved ones open a gift you have picked out for them? Join us in giving that joy as a gift to someone in our community.
This year Third Street Community Center is partnering with Covenant Church in providing a special experience for those in our community by building a toy store that is affordable. The Christmas Village Toy Store provides a "hand up" for Pitt County families who want to purchase affordable new toys for their children at Christmas. Rather than simply giving a handout of toys to at-risk families, we believe in empowering families to purchase Christmas gifts for their own children. Donated toys will be sold at deeply discounted prices. The funds generated will be reinvested back into the store, giving job opportunities to some of these same families to work in the store, while the training and experience they receive from being employed by the Christmas Store will expand their employable skills.
We are excited to join the Body of Christ in restoring Joy and Dignity at Christmas by empowering our community. Join us! We need lots of volunteers and donations to make this happen. Go to www.connect2covenant.com/toystore for more information or click on the links below to see how you best can impact your community during this Christmas Season.
For nearly one year, volunteers have been flooding the old Third Street School as we seek to transform the historic building into a fully functioning community center. In January of 2014, we are planning the launch of an Arts-Centered After School Program and there are still finishing touches that need to take place in order for the building to be ready for our first students.
So, beginning on Saturday, August 17th, we are kicking off our 10 Saturday Surge. A surge is a sweeping forward movement and that is exactly what we hope these 10 Saturdays in the fall will represent for Third Street and the city of Greenville.
Every Saturday from 8/17 to 10/19 we will be priming, painting and installing flooring in 8 new restroom facilities, installing flooring in three classrooms designated for the after school program, as well as placing the finishing touches on the paint jobs in those classrooms. Time permitting there will be other projects to tackle.
Each Saturday we are capping the number of volunteers to no more than 20 for the sake of efficiency and management.
