IceVelvet- Steve Rich http://www.twinlightscoffee.com/

In 2005 Steve met Amy, who had just recently moved back from Portland, the coffee mecca of the US. Coffee quickly became a hot topic between the two of them. When they married two years later and found out they were having twins, the idea for Twin Lights Coffee was born. They bought the domain name and then and there – a dream for someday.

Fast forward 8 years – Steven still, crazy about coffee: the craft, the process and the product. He perfected a small batch cold brew recipe at home – rich, tasty and so smooth it went down like ice velvet. He was so excited with the results, he mentioned it at his workout class, more than a few times — until one day his friends said, “Well, bring it in!”

HATS OFF to the Annisquam Village Players for a Spectacular Peter Pan

Sofia Gadbois, Elliot Davis, Jared Gilman, and Charlie Rousmaniere

A huge shout out to co-directors Terry Sands and Mary Curtis and the outstanding cast and crew of the Annisquam Village Players for once again creating a fabulously wonderful summer theatre event. The cast is stellar, the production flawless, and every act left you wondering, how can they top that! The children in the audience were especially mesmerized, rooting audibly for Peter Pan (played by the tremendously talented Elliot Davis), and grumbling loudly at the villainous and hilarious Captain Hook (featuring Rick Gadbois). Three Cheers and a Standing Ovation for All!!!

It was a joy to see families working together both behind the scenes and performing on stage, including the funny, fun, and talented Rousmaniere’s Will, Charlie, Julia, and Jack (Dana, when will we see you on stage?); the always entertaining Rick Gadbois with his beautiful and accomplished daughter Sofia (what stage presence!); and the charming Think Pink Flamingo, Lidi Sands, with her adorable son, Baby Rabbit Alex Sands.

With an extra special shout out to Terry and Mary for their superb direction and casting, Krisitna for her beautiful choral direction, to Chicki and her crew for yet another year of ingenious sets, to Deej Viau for brilliant choreography, and to Cem Uslu and orchestra for exquisite music. And with a special note of appreciation to Linette and her helpers for their always kind assistance to all.

An extra, extra shout out goes to costume designer Hanna Anderson and the very adroit costume committee for their utterly fantastic ensembles. Every costume was pitch perfect and beautifully executed. Hanna grew up in Annisqaum and now lives in Boston. She is only 21 years old. We’ll be saying—we knew her when…

And, to AVP’s newest stage manager, GREAT JOB Deb Michel!

__________________________________________________________

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow… In Annisquam.

You can bet your bottom dollar that this summer there’ll be fun. ANNIE is set in the

era of the Great Depression, which bears unfortunate but timely similarities to present

day events. But the show is far from depressing — it offers upbeat music and a fast-paced, humorous script with many zany characters.

There are numerous opportunities for children. There’s Annie and the girls from the orphanage,

the rapscallion boys of the hobo village, the “NYC” chorus including both boys and girls, and even as Sandy, the dog.

ANNIE has some of the best adult roles of the Broadway stage, starting with Miss Hannigan,

the mistress of the orphanage who everybody loves to hate, and whose song “Little Girls” is a

guaranteed scene-stealer. Miss Hannigan, her brother Rooster and his girlfriend Lily St. Regis,

soft-shoe to one of the best songs of the musical stage, “Easy Street.” And of course there is

bald Daddy Warbucks and his beautiful confident Grace Farrell. Politicians abound, starting

with FDR and members of his Cabinet. At the other end of the spectrum is the hobo village, replete with both savory and unsavory characters; there are the lovely Boylan Sisters, who croon a tune in long, slinky gowns, and the starlet who sings her way to fame in “NYC.”
