Featured Event: WDPAC Repertory presents Mamma Mia!
March 6th-15th

Sophia Sheridan is 20 years old and lives with her mother Donna on an idyllic Greek island. She is about to be married and wishes for only one thing: that her father walk her down the aisle and give her away. The only problem is that she doesn't know who her father is and her mother won't discuss it with her. After she finds her mom's diary from the year she was born, she invites three men who could possibly be that man. Sophie is convinced that she will know her father as soon as she sees him but soon realizes that she hasn't a clue. Mayhem ensues when her mother is displeased and confused that the three are there, the men all think they're the father and her fiancé is getting fed up with the whole mess.

Challenge: Smith’s Barroom Challenge-A self-guided drinking tour
April 1st-30th

Mark your calendars! Save the date! Our Smith’s Barroom Challenge is returning for the second year. Happening only in April, it will be a self-guided tour of historically-inspired concoctions, taking you on a journey to your favorite downtown Sanford drinking establishments!

But just what is Smith’s Barroom? Here’s a brief backstory: In 1887, Sanford experimented with being dry and disallowed the sale of alcohol for a time. Unfortunately for Sanford resident John Smith, this maybe have led him to close down his popular drinking establishment called The Barroom, located on the Welborne block downtown. In 1892, Mr. Smith hand wrote a deed of sale, and included a detailed list of every alcohol he sold, and hilariously, every resident who owed the Barroom a debt. We’ve transcribed that list of 1880's alcohol and are challenging downtown Sanford bars and breweries to create their own historically-inspired drinks, and for the month of April the sale of those drinks will benefit the Sanford Historical Society.
