Atlantic Steps is a breathtaking and energetic new ensemble from Ireland’s Western Atlantic coastline. Combining an exceptional cast of Irish musicians and dancers along with a splash of song and humor, this is a production that is certain to lift your heart. The journey across the Atlantic during the waves of emigration from Ireland may have been tough for many, but it couldn't stop the fun and excitement of the rich culture these immigrants shared in their new home. The Atlantic Steps brings the spirit and enduring fun of the traditional Irish music, song, step dance, sean-nos (old-style) dance, and the spoken word. Join us for a fun-filled journey along Ireland’s Atlantic coastline exploring the tunes, dances and songs that draw so many to this mystical landscape. Purchase tickets online or call (603) 535-2787.

The exhibition, A Walking Practice, is a series of prints and watercolors that have been inspired from the natural world. The artist, Lauren Sayers, says that these prints are a response to her “walking journeys” referencing specific regions, trails, water (ice), rock shapes, and roads. She records what she is drawn to as line, shape, and color.

Pressure from the etching press adds an element of surprise creating unique textures that resemble those found in the natural world.

Lauren Sayers is pursuing a bachelor of science degree in art education with a concentration in printmaking. These artworks are a sample taken from her portfolio.

On the surface, the musical A Man of No Importance, which is about the inner struggle and turmoil created when shame and desire collide, tells the story of an amateur theatre group in Dublin and their leader, Alfie Byrne. Alfie is determined to stage a version of Oscar Wilde’s Salome at his church, despite the protestations of church authorities. Through moments of honesty, self-discovery, and deeply felt emotion, A Man of No Importance offers us hope for a future where those who are considered to be unwantedly different and outcasts are, indeed, recognized as being equal, good, and welcomed.

This performance is not recommended for children due to adult themes.
