            Coming Up at Lapham Center                
     We have reduced-price tickets for the Westport Playhouse's world premiere of the musical revue "Sing for Your Shakespeare," featuring songs from 'West Side Story,' 'Kiss Me, Kate,' 'The Boys from Syracuse,' and music and dance numbers from many greats, including Duke Ellington, Frank Loesser, jazz legend John Dankworth, and others. "Through dance, song, and verse, six amazing performers and a band of seven versatile musicians will celebrate the way Shakespeare's words inspired some of the hottest music from some of the greatest 20th Century songwriters."
     Tickets, which cost $25, are for the Wednesday matinee at 2 p.m. on June 18. If you are interested, please drop off or mail a check, payable to Senior Center, by noon on Friday, June 6. You will be able to pick up your tickets at the Box Office after 1 p.m. on the day of the performance.

     A new program, Arthritis Exercise, will be offered on Fridays, June 6-August 9, from 12:05 to 1:05 p.m. This Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program claims participants will experience less pain, more flexible joints, stronger muscles, better sleep, increased energy and an improved outlook on life. Exercises can be done standing or sitting.

     Another new class, The Boxer Rebellion, will be held on four Wednesdays beginning June 11 at 10 a.m. Fred Chang will take students through the events in turn-of-the-century China that brought about the Boxer Rebellion, a key turning point in world history, and compare them to the American Revolution in the 1770's.

     On Thursday, June 12 New Canaan residents can schedule an appointment to get help accessing their Free Credit Report. Checking credit reports regularly is one of the best ways to protect against identity theft and misuse of credit cards. NCPD Officers John Milligan and Roy Adams will help participants get a copy of their credit report from one of the three national consumer credit reporting companies.
     Call 203-594-3620 for an appointment.

     A Very Beginning iPad class will be offered on two Wednesdays, June 18 and 25, from 1 to 3 p.m. Students will learn how to turn the iPad on and off and keep its battery charged. They will also find out how to surf the web, send and receive emails and download some really useful and fun apps.
