Pick #2

The Whodunnit Scavenger Hunt

Join Watson Adventures at the Museum of Fine Arts and try to solve the murder mystery.  1:00 on Saturday for ages 10 and up.


A crazed killer is on the loose!

And it’s up to you to stop him! The killer has created a scavenger hunt that, when completed, reveals his name, the weapon he used, and where he hid the body in the museum. He sent the hunt to the police and dared them to try to solve it. The police need your help. You’ll get a list of suspects, weapons, and hiding places that are all items in the museum.

By following the trail of clues and answering tricky questions, you’ll narrow the list of suspects, weapons, and places and provide the police with the evidence they need to catch and convict the killer. Can you figure out whodunnit?

No knowledge of the museum or art is necessary, but good reading skills are helpful. Contact us to learn more and find more fun!

Pick #3

Egg-cellent Easter Adventure at Appleton Farms


Say goodbye to the cold and celebrate the arrival of warmer weather here on the Farm! While we often associate eggs with the Easter Bunny, in many cultures eggs symbolize new life and are tied with the coming of spring. At this event, we celebrate spring, new life on the farm, and the bounty of fresh eggs produced by our hens.

Go on the “Egg-cellent” Quest around the farm and learn about the journey from egg to chicken, collecting Easter eggs at each station to complete the Quest! Enjoy homemade refreshments in our Carriage Barn, visit with the calves, and play games in the stone paddock!

Stop by anytime between 10am -12pm to start your Quest. Please bring a basket of your own to collect the Quest eggs. Note: It is only necessary to register for one ticket per family.

Little Mermaid Rockport Middle School

Hi Joey-
Would it be possible to insert info on the Rockport Middle School’s
production of The Little Mermaid?  I’ve attached the poster.
Last year’s production of the musical “Grease” produced several nominations
for the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild Awards.
Thank you!

Rockport Middle School Performs Annie This Weekend


Rockport Middle School Performs Annie.  This weekend.

The cast of this year’s middle school musical, "Annie," has been hard

at work rehearsing every day after school since the first week of

school. Due to the large number of performers, there will be two

casts: one cast will handle the Thursday night and Saturday matinee

performances and the other will perform on Friday and Saturday nights.

Additionally, our crew members have begun work on our complex,

multi-level set.  Putting together this show has been a team effort

involving over 75 middle school students and several high school

student assistant directors, in addition to the support of teachers,

staff, and parents.

       Annie is sure to be a production you won’t soon forget, so don’t miss

out! Performances will be October 28 and 29 at 7:00 pm and on October

30 at 2:00 and 7:00 pm. There will be no performances on Sunday the

31st (Halloween). General Admission tickets are $10. Tickets for

students and seniors are $7. For more information, call the middle

school office at 978-546-1250.
