Swift Creek Mill presents ‘The 39-Steps’

The clowns carried the show during Swift Creek Mill’s latest production of “The 39-Steps.” Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film of Alfred Hitchcock, the four cast members give a superb performance for a small theater with a small budget.

Changing Gears: Art center moves to a more public presence

Evoking a spiritual and emotional response to those who participate in a presentation of all art forms, it is well known that visual art, music, dance and performance art is an aesthetic elevator for those who observe and are engaged by it.

Drugstore was once Chester’s epicenter

Take the turn off of Route 10 in Chester onto Harrowgate Road and you will immediately see it straight ahead. An old, two-story, odd-shaped brick building that has been painted over with gray paint. Odd-shaped to fit the plot of land where it was built, it’s sort of our southern version of Fenway Park.
