ST. PAUL'S TONIGHT: Come see me being silly!

On Saturday,  May 2, at 7:00pm, and Sunday, May 3, at 3:00pm, I'll be wearing a very short poodle skirt and leading a cast of fellow crazy Episcopalians in a tribute to the music and culture of the 1950s.


  • Your favorite tunes, from Bill Haley to Elvis Presley!
  • Men's synchronized swimming!
  • Terrible vintage commercials!
  • A real rock-and-roll band!


It's a ton of fun: what we may lack in skill, we more than make up for in enthusiasm and joy. Tickets are $10; all proceeds support the ministries and programs of St. Paul's.

COME SEE US!

ST. PAUL'S TONIGHT: ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK.
Saturday, May 2, 7:00pm
Sunday, May 3, 3:00pm
Tickets $10 at the door
John Glenn Middle School auditorium, 99 McMahon Road, Bedford, MA 01730.
