Jan. 10, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The League of Women Voters is hosting a viewing party for the short play "Cassandra" and the film "Climate of Change" at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church's basement, 469 Norway Ave., Huntington.

The event is open to the public.

The story of "Cassandra" focuses on the reaction of neighbors to mountaintop removal mining. The play was written by Elinore Taylor and the actors include Carolyn Thomas and Norm Branch.

"Climate of Change" concerns environmental action by communities' world-wide. Featured in the film are 13-year old schoolchildren from India who are educating their neighbors about environmental problems as well as making changes; a public relations woman from London who promotes sustainability; an African leader who organizes a solar festival; West Virginians who respond to the environmental problems of mountaintop removal mining; and New Guinean timber operators who selectively log the trees rather than deforest its portion of the rain forest.
