Ilion Little Theater- "Funny Money"

Posted by herkimerhabitat on May 27, 2014 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)

The Ilion LIttle Theater is once again running a special performance to raise money for Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity.

Join us on June 12, at 6 PM for a social hour before the show starts at 7 PM.  Tickets are $12.

"Funny Money" -

Hilarity ensues when a mild mannered CPA accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase - one filled with money! He tells his confused wife to leave everything behind, but before they can - the doorbell rings and the police show up as misunderstanding upon misunderstanding unfold. When a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry's suitcase shows up dead in the Thames, Henry's inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.

In addition to dedicating the home, Habitat recognized volunteers for the hours they put into the project

and individuals and businesses for their contributions. Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity President

Christine Mergenthaler presented a Bible to the St. Onge family. The Rev. Andrew Peloubet of the Ilion

First Baptist Church offered the opening prayer and benediction.

The Herkimer County Habitat board meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Annunciation Parish

Hall in Ilion. The next meeting is scheduled for June 25 at 7 p.m. All those interested are welcome to
