Drilled! the Musical is a rollicking song and dance political satire that joyfully and irreverently skewers right and left-wing fanatics, the health care system, the Executive Office, the 1% and, of course, dentists. Featuring performances by Snell Isle Resident, Bailee McQueen, and music direction by Constantine Grame.
Writer/director of Webb’s City: the Musical, local playwright, Bill Leavengood, brings us Drilled! the Musical, hailed by Tony Award Winning Writer/Lyricist Joe DiPietro as “a broad, go-for-broke political satire, chock full of expert and very witty lyrics."
Here is a brief summary:
Larry the Laborer, a blue-collar celebrity and conservative icon who helped his party win the White House, has fallen on hard times. Jobless, loveless and plagued with a painful toothache, Larry journeys to the office of the only dental conglomerate that will accept his lousy insurance. And that’s where his comic nightmare really begins…
General Admission is $18 in advance and $22 the day of. Reserved Seating is $36. Student tickets are $15 with a valid ID and $10 for the 9pm show on Friday, July 19th. Tickets are available at: https://www.mypalladium.org/drilled-the-musical/ Book your ticket today! It will be the most fun you’ve had in a dentist’s office.

Numerous St. Petersburg museums offer summer programs that you may want to look into. For sure the James Museum (892-4200), Museum of Fine Arts (896-2667), The Dali (823-3767), Imagine Museum (300-1700), Morean Art Center (822-7872), American Stage (823-7529), Practically Pikasso (822-5204) and these are just the few that come to mind. I’m certain there are many others as well.
I hope these resources will provide ideas and opportunities for the upcoming summer! Bonnie Hargrett, SIPOA President

We heard today from SPPD that Snell Isle’s property crime report for the month of March was near perfect. There were no residential or vehicle burglaries for the entire month! GREAT GOING to everyone who is LOCKING UP and moving valuables out of sight. Thanks too to all our wonderful Block Captains for keeping everyone in the loop regarding crime. However, I do have sad news to report to you this evening…
The recently beautified Snell Isle Fountain area was hit by vandals who maliciously sprayed a chemical that killed 2 wide swaths of grass abutting Brightwaters Blvd (adjacent the stop sign) and the spray carried into one of the planted beds causing the beautiful purple Lantana and some of the gorgeous silver Dusty Miller to shrivel up. This was very painful to observe as so much time and energy has gone into our beautification projects and when one person or persons can do this harm, it causes serious angst!
Please, if anyone saw anyone or anything suspicious - at any hour - milling around this Fountain area in the last 24 hours, please let me hear from you. We know this spray had to be applied sometime between Monday 1PM and today when we found it at 4PM. We have filed a Police Report and will be pressing charges if the culprit(s) can be caught. Thank you for your vigilance and support…this will NOT deter our continued plans for beautification throughout Snell Isle!
