Unity Theatre presents Little Mary Sunshine


June 9-26, 2011
Little Mary Sunshine a musical by Rick Besoyan
     It's a simpler time, There's a good man for every virtuous woman, justice always triumphs, and God blesses America.
    This is a musical spoof of old-time operettas.  It's not modern.  It's not edgy.  It's the sweet story of Little Mary, who knows the handsome hero is courageous, villains will be defeated, and nothing must dim a sunny dispositions.
When you book your stay 
we will be glad to secure your tickets!
You can add them to your stay if you book online or give us a call to book and we will make sure you get your tickets.
979 251-9947

How Do You Keep Brown Sugar from Getting Hard Lumps

Do any of your out there have trouble with you brown sugar getting hard?
-I know I have heard of placing a piece of bread in 
with the brown sugar and
-Placing brown sugar in plastic baggies
... But here is my solution
This is a piece of clay that has been fired, but not glazed.  You simply soak it in water, pat it dry and place it in you brown sugar jar or bag.
It can be used over and over again by simply soaking it again.
I got mine at Martha's Bloomers, but any specialty store will probably have them.
