Theatre in the Pines Prepares for spring performance
Nan Webber, Director, Theatre in The Pines, announced recently that The Heiress, by Ruth & Augusus Goetz will be the spring program in May.
The Heiress, takes place in New York in the 1850’s and the story tells of a shy and plain young girl , Catherine Sloper who falls desperately in love with a delightful young fortune hunter. Catherine lacks the worldliness from realizing the young man proposing to her is not entirely drawn to her by her charm.
Performance of The Heiress will take place on May 15, 16, 17 & 18. at Sprian Hall, located on the corner of Broadway and School Street in Rockport.
Plans are also underway for the September performance of Romeo & Juliet in September at the Shlin Liu Performance Center, 37 Main Street, Rockport.
Further details regarding both performance will be shared as these date near.
I’m excited to share the news that a free community sing-a-long to celebrate the life, spirit and music of Pete Seeger has been planned for Friday, February 7 at 7:00 PM at the Lanesville Community Center.
Pete Seeger, one of America’s best-loved folksingers, an untiring activist, environmentalist, and an inspiration to many, passed away on January 27th, 2014.
This will be a participatory evening. Though a number of seasoned Cape Ann folk performers (roster is still growing!) will attend prepared to lead songs, all are welcome to bring acoustic instruments and a song or story to share. Song sheets will be available.
We hope the 7:00 start time will encourage families with young children to attend. It’s fine to bring snacks or non-alcoholic drinks to share if so desired. Spread the word! Bring friends! Bring family! And remember, there is no charge for admission.
