Cancelled due to a scheduling conflict.

It’s going to be a creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, an altogether ooky Halloween night when you spend it with Gomez Addams, Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Kurt Weill, Thomas Wolfe, e.e. cummings, Ezra Pound and the usual suspects–also known as John Astin.  He’ll touch on the dark side of the human psyche as explored by some of his favorite authors for a chilling evening of theater.  Then, he’ll take you to the lighter side as he shares clips and stories from one of TVs most beloved comedies, The Addams Family.  He’ll give you a glimpse behind the scenes, discuss why it is such a cult classic and you’ll have the opportunity to ask him questions.  Come dressed in costume and enjoy a free Halloween treat at intermission!

Appropriate for all ages.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.

By blending her knack for melodic and rhythmic improvisation and interplay with elements of honky-tonk, western swing and golden-era pop standards, Miss Tess and her multifaceted supporting band have arrived at a style simultaneously refreshing and hauntingly familiar.  Now based out of New York, when Miss Tess lived in Boston, she and her group were nominated for Boston Music Awards in the categories of folk, roots and jazz, a testament to their wide appeal and musicality.  Their newest album The Love I Have for You is an album of covers that match their unique style from a diverse roster of artists such as Neil Young, Randy Newman, Willie Nelson, and Bonnie Raitt.  The title track, penned by Miss Tess herself, proves she can hold her own with this impressive group both in writing and performing.  Come hear why she has established a devoted following in northern New England and beyond.

The Threepenny Opera tells the tale of Macheath, A.K.A. Mack the Knife, a lady’s man of ill-repute and knavery who will stop at nothing to get what he wants when he wants it.  Raw intensity, rough reality, and unflinching honesty are hallmarks of this masterpiece that combines epic and musical theatre.  Created by two theatrical masters of the 20th century, Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, The Threepenny Opera, which gave us the pop hit “Mack the Knife,” offers insights into the underside of life to which, one way or another, even the most noble and honest of us may fall prey.
