Dahlonega's Historic Holly Theatre's Summer Spectacular Show

Meredith Willson's

This Tony award-winning musical played on Broadway for 1,375 performances and is the delightful story of Harold Hill, a footloose con man who sets out to take advantage of the citizens of a small, turn-of-the-century Iowa town, promising to transform the children into a world-class brass band---for a price, with old accomplice Marcellus Washburn helping him with the scam. Hill figures he's home free until he is instead captivated and morally transformed by the townsfolk. Along the way he falls in love with the town's lovely librarian, Marian Paroo and inspires all with the joy of music. The show opens July 10th.

Tickets are available for purchase at WWW.HOLLYTHEATER.COM

or by contacting the Holly Theater Box Office at 706-864-3759.

Rachel Glazer and Dr. Janet Moss

Last week, our Rachel, a sophomore at North Hall High school, attended Piedmont College's First Annual Debate Camp. She learned about
public forum debate and was awarded the second place speaker's trophy.

Congratulations to Rachel and many thanks to the Gainesville Evening Optimist Club for granting her a scholarship to attend the camp.

And this just in! Rachel has been nominated for a Metropolitan Atlanta Theatre Award in the Youth Award category for her work in the Holly Theatre's production of "Into the Woods." She was Lucinda, one of Cinderella's oh-so-evil stepsisters.

Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at the The Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta on September 27th. Mazel tov, Rach!

Deal of the Week

One of the best grocery deals this week is the buy-one-get-one-free special at Publix for 3 lb. boxes of Velveeta Cheese. That means you pay only $2.70 per box. The special runs through Wednesday. Click
here to find cheese dip recipes, perfect for your Independence Day celebrations.

Here's a great main dish featuring Velveeta:

Tex-Mex Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can Rotel tomatoes- use the hot if you like it spicy
1 can (8 ounce) tomato sauce
1 large onion diced
1 large green bell pepper diced
2 tbsp. butter
1 pound Velveeta cheese sliced
1 package spaghetti (small box)

Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet and saute the onion and pepper until translucent. Add the soup, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and sliced Velveeta cheese to the onion and peppers and heat and stir until everything is warm and then set the mixture aside. Break the spaghetti into 3 or 4 inch pieces and cook according to package directions. While the spaghetti is cooking, add chicken to the soup and cheese mixture in the skillet, stirring to mix well. Strain the spaghetti and rinse it with cool water and then add it to the chicken mixture, stirring to mix well. Turn all into a large baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 300 degrees for one hour. This is a heavy dish, so a light side dish such as a vegetable or salad would be good with this, but really it's a meal by itself.

And then of course there's Velveeta fudge...
