The date is March 14, 1923, the day before silent movie star, Rudolf Valentino, came to Crown Point to "get hitched". The event made headlines nationwide. It's the era of flappers, and prohibition and silent movies. The story follows three comical mismatched couples and the people who are trying to stop them from getting married.

    Music and fashions of the 20s will be an integral part of the show and laughter will punctuate the evening. The doors, and the music and bar open at 6:30 and the catered dinner will be served 7:00.

    FROZEN STIFF, a farcical murder mystery dinner/theater play was produced by the Lake Court House Foundation in 2012 and played to sold out audiences. LET'S GET HITCHED looks to be even funnier.

  • Culver’s® of Schererville Unlimited Possibilities Drawing Contest - In celebration of National Library Week, April 12 - April 19, the Dyer-Schererville Branch of the Lake County Public Library System will join Culver’s® of Schererville in the Unlimited Possibilities drawing contest for children ages four to eleven. Every child who completes a drawing will receive a Culver’s Be Our Guest certificate for a free single scoop of Culver’s Fresh Frozen Custard and will also be entered into a random drawing to win a Scoopie Kids meal certificate.

    "Books allow children to explore worlds both real and imaginary," said Culver’s of Schererville owner John Gates. "Any time we can encourage a child to read and use their imagination, we want to take part in that effort. National Library Week provides all of us with an important reminder of the positive role books play in shaping young minds and developing reading and language skills."

    The drawing contest encourages children to read and celebrate their favorite book characters. Children can enter the contest by picking up drawing sheets from the Dyer-Schererville Branch beginning April 12th and are encouraged to draw a picture of the main character or theme.

    Drawings will be displayed at Culver's of Schererville through the month of April.

    "We are excited to partner with Culver’s to help get kids, and the community, excited about reading," said Babs, Director of Children's Services with Dyer-Schererville Branch.

    First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and state library associations and libraries across the country each April.

The date is March 14, 1923, the day before silent movie star, Rudolf Valentino, came to Crown Point to "get hitched". The event made headlines nationwide. It's the era of flappers, and prohibition and silent movies. The story follows three comical mismatched couples and the people who are trying to stop them from getting married.

    Music and fashions of the 20s will be an integral part of the show and laughter will punctuate the evening. The doors, and the music and bar open at 6:30 and the catered dinner will be served 7:00.

    FROZEN STIFF, a farcical murder mystery dinner/theater play was produced by the Lake Court House Foundation in 2012 and played to sold out audiences. LET'S GET HITCHED looks to be even funnier.

    LET'S GET HITCHED! Is scheduled for April 17th and 18th at 7:00 and April 19th at 2:00, and the next weekend April 24th and 25th at 7:00 and April 26th at 2:00.
