Epic

Epic is an animated adventure that centers around Mary Katherine, aka M.K ( voice by Amanda Seyfried). She is a teenager who doesn't believe that there are tiny creatures living in the forest. After witnessing Queen Tara's death, who entrusts her the bulb that holds the key to the forest future, M.K. magically shrinks into a miniature and starts on an adventure with Ronin and Nod to guard the magical bulb from the Boggans in order to prevent the forest from destruction. Epic is a funny, exciting movie with a twist of romance that keeps children and adults entertained.

Youth Advisory Panel Update

Father Daughter Ball

The Father Daughter Ball was a magical night. It was included a sit-down dinner, dancing, photographs, and even a horse drawn carriage ride. The girls looked stunning in their dresses and danced to their hearts’ content. It was truly incredible to help make their fairy tale dreams come true.  

Les Miserables

Les Miserables is absolutely breath taking. It is amazing to have a book turn into a musical and then turn into an Oscar nominated movie. There are so many great actors (Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe- just to name a few) who work so well to bring this movie to life. Jean Valjean, Prisoner 24601, is released from prison, but breaks his parole, in order to create a new life. However Inspector Javert has made it his mission to bring him back for justice. It is amazing to see how well this musical/ movie worked out.

IMAGINE DRAGONS (night visions)
Where do I even began? Imagine Dragons is an American Indie rock band and they're amazing. I love this CD!! My favorite song on their album is "Radioactive" and "Demons". For some reason, every time I listen to their music, I get the shivers and it just makes me daydream about good things and makes me think more positive. I advise you to check this CD out!
