Aug

to Oct 15

Tale of Two Villages-The North and the South View of our Town

The "Art on Loan" program displays the works of local artists and cultural organizations on the meeting room walls in Barnstable Town Hall.  The current exhibit, “A Tale of Two Villages” is on display in the Barnstable Town Hall 2nd floor meeting rooms now through October 15, 2019.   From the ever changing Main Street of Hyannis to the evolving uses of Barnstable Harbor, the history of these villages is explored with photographs of work and life.  This exhibit is a joint project of the Barnstable Historical Society and the Hyannis Historical Society:

 Nancy Shoemaker, Town Historian, shares information about both historical societies:

 About the Hyannis Historical Society: 

This organization celebrates the rich history of the Town of Barnstable’s central village.  Its members are committed to the “protection, preservation and promotion of our community’s unique and diverse historic fabric.”

 

The Hyannis Historical Society had been defunct for decades with only traces of their artifacts left at the Hyannis Library. The Society was given a second life in May 2016. The Society is looking into a partnership with and home at the Hyannis Public Library.

 “The purpose of the Society shall be to create and foster interest in the history of the Village of Hyannis; to promote historical research; to collect and provide care and custody of historical documents and artifacts; to provide educational opportunities; and to provide analysis or commentary to Town or other organizations about historic structures within the village.”

 About the Barnstable Historical Society:

Barnstable Historical Society was founded in 1939 with a mission to preserve the cultural heritage and maritime history of the seven villages of the Town of Barnstable.

 Barnstable Historical Society’s home, the Phinney/Jones House was built c.1834 by Sylvanus Bourne Phinney.  Phinney was the founder and publisher of The Barnstable Patriot, a local newspaper founded in 1830 and still published today.

 The collection includes memorabilia from Barnstable’s seafaring days, ships’ models, a quilt collection, kitchen tools, paintings, documents from the 17th to 20th centuries, a children’s room, treasures from Barnstable residents of years past, and Donald G. Trayser’s collection of photographs and documents. Trayser was a former editor of The Barnstable Patriot, as well as the author/editor of “The Seven Villages of Barnstable.”

The Barnstable Historical Society’s Phinney/Jones House, is open to visitors mid-June to mid-October, Wednesday-Saturday, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Find them on Facebook: Barnstable Historical Society

 The Artwork on Loan program at Town Hall is free and open to the public. The current exhibit is on display now through October 15, 2019 in the Barnstable Town Hall Hearing Room and Selectmen’s Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Barnstable Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis. Free parking is available in the Town Hall Parking Lot. Town Hall is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm (except State and Federal holidays) and frequently opens during evening hours for scheduled meetings.

Democracy:  From Beginning to End
Sep

6:00 PM18:00

Democracy: From Beginning to End

Three Mondays: September 23rd & 30th, & October 7

Democracy: From Beginning to End is a three-part presentation that examines the theoretical and practical foundations of Democracy in history. The discussion addresses the elements of Democracy and compares it as a political system to other options. Three 90-minute lectures, given by Michael Darring, provide an overview of Democracy’s emergence and foundations; of the era of the founding of American democracy; and of Democracy’s status in the modern world and beyond. 

Michael Darring resides in Cotuit with his wife, Kate, and their two hounds, Winston and White Cloud. Michael earned a BA in Philosophy from the University of Tennessee and recently retired from an arduous career in the oilfields of the Gulf of Mexico; in between, he travelled and read widely and frequently. In the middle of 2018, after reading a book on the founding of the New England colonies, he became interested in the subject of democracy. These lectures are the result of his research since that time.

This program is free but please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events--activities or contact the Library.

from 6-8pm

$65 per person

One of the most coveted prawns in kitchens worldwide, Carabineros are a large deep-sea prawn species that hail from the Eastern Atlantic into the Mediterranean Sea.

Treating these jumbo prawns like small delicate lobsters versus simple shrimp is recommended. Their jumbo size and prominent red color give these prawns striking plate appeal! Perfect for when you need to impress dinner guests. None of this prawn should go to waste, and some Europeans consider the flavor of their heads a delicacy!

We will have carabineros prawn ceviche with apples, gambas a la plancha, gambas al ajillo and finish with fresh cheeses. We will taste Cava, rose and Tempranillo wines.

The number of white sharks has been rising off the coast of Cape Cod in response to dramatic increases in seal abundance. In 2018, Massachusetts experienced its first fatal shark attack since 1936.

Dr. Skomal is an accomplished marine biologist, charismatic speaker and senior fisheries biologist with Massachusetts Marine Fisheries since 1987. He currently heads up the Massachusetts Shark Research Program as well as directing the scientific research on Great White Sharks off the coast of Cape Cod. Join Dr. Skomal for this fascinating lecture.  

Doors will open for wine and cheese at 6 pmLecture at 6:30pm

Schuyler Grant at the 19th Hole Tavern
Sep

8:00 PM20:00

Schuyler Grant at the 19th Hole Tavern

Schuyler Grant is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Grant’s songwriting is greatly influenced by his years in New Orleans and Manhattan’s West Village. Working with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans (Tori Amos, Sarah Mclaughlin), Schuyler released his first studio EP, “Moving On” (available now at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com), in May of 2016. Called “gritty and soulful” by one reviewer, “Moving On” explores the softer side of Grant’s songwriting, drawing much inspiration from likes of Bob Dylan and Ray LaMontagne.

Grant’s second LP is a departure from the folk-inspired songwriting of his first, replacing the gentle ballads of “Moving On” with a rough and tumble exploration of the harder, blues driven rock and roll the songwriter holds close to heart. “It is the music I have always wanted to play— growing up on Clapton, Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, I developed a love for fuzzed-out guitar riffs at an early age,” Grant laughs. Working with Bradley Conant on percussion and again with Evans on bass, the album was released at the end of 2017

On Mount Desert Island, we’ll explore picturesque locales such as Bar
Harbor, the Acadia coast, Jordan Pond, Eagle Lake, as well as places off the beaten track.

Most days will begin with a sunrise and morning shoot, then break and free time around lunch, editing classroom lessons, discussion and reviews in the afternoon, and a late afternoon/early evening shoot.
We’ll also have an optional night shoot. The weather, sun, moon and tides will guide our itinerary.

With two instructors and a limit of 12 students, you’ll have plenty of time for personalized instruction. John and Betty will offer tips and techniques in the field and classroom to help you get the most out of
your workshop and develop your skills. Instruction includes:
– Classic and creative landscape photography
– Long exposure and camera movement
– Depth of field
– Night photography
– Use of filters

FROM CIVIL RIGHTS TO HUNGER STRIKES 1966-1981

with Sean Murphy


Wednesdays, beginning October 9

4 weeks

6-7pm

$75/$70 members

With the partitioning of Ireland the Parliament of Northern Ireland built a new state designed to ensure ongoing control by Unionists. They marginalized the nationalist community, the progressive labor movement and those unionists not committed to the realization of a sectarian state.

They ensured their control through gerrymandering of constituencies; the use of Special Powers and the formation of a sectarian police force; and the use of social and economic policies designed in the interest of the majority population.

Reforms after World War 2 in education and in the provision of welfare benefits played a part in radicalizing the generations in the 1950's and 1960's who sought to change the reality for their communities. The Civil Right Movement sought to reform the Unionist state but their efforts were met with violent resistance on the basis that changes would undermine the nature of the Unionist state. Reform was not an option.

The Civil Rights campaign was criminalized and attacked to the point that nationalist areas had to rely on self defense against drive-by shootings, bombings and pogroms by loyalists, police raids, and after 1969 from British army activity. By the late 1960's the IRA had been weakened and had little capability to effectively defend nationalist areas. The violence against the nationalist population led to the formation of the Provisional IRA and to another devastating war in the centuries old imposition on the people of Ireland by a foreign government.

Anglo Irish Treaty and Civil War in Ireland

with Sean Murphy


Wednesdays, beginning October 9

7:15-8:15pm

$75/$70 members

The Anglo-Irish Treaty was an agreement signed in 1921 between the government of the of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and representatives of the Irish Republic that concluded the Irish War of Independence.

It provided for the establishment of the Irish Free State as a self-governing dominion within the British Empire". It also provided Northern Ireland, with an option to opt out of the Irish Free State, which it exercised.

The contents of the treaty divided the Irish Republic's leadership, with the President of the Republic, Éamon de Valera, leading the anti-treaty minority.

The main dispute was centred on the status as a dominion (as represented by the Oath of Allegiance and Fidelity) rather than as an independent republic. The Dáil voted to approve the treaty but the objectors refused to accept it.

The split over the treaty led to the Irish Civil War (1922-23).

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

An enhanced reading of the cult classic The Bad Seed is set to scare CCftA audiences on October 16. Before The Bad Seed was a Hollywood hit, it was a Broadway play, and before it was a play, it was a novel. The reading, directed by Jo Brisbane, will also draw comparisons between these three major versions of The Bad Seed, which has been described as “a chilling study of evil…totally mesmeric." Fans of the play will enjoy the camp of its melodrama and dark humor. Brisbane also promises a special prize for the best Rhoda Penmark look-alike costume, and a special Best Penmanship Award.

The Bad Seedis a play “dramatized” by Maxwell Anderson (in 1955), and is based on The Bad Seed, a book written by William March (in 1954). Screenwriter John Lee Mahin wrote the movie adaptation, which was directed by Mervyn LeRoy for Warner Brothers Pictures (in 1956).

Creating a Character (or, The Art of Doing Nothing: Ensemble, Extras, and Background Work)
Oct

9:00 AM09:00

Creating a Character (or, The Art of Doing Nothing: Ensemble, Extras, and Background Work)

We all know what to do when we’re the lead or a major supporting character, but the background performers help to set the mood. Whether you’re onstage or on set, directors appreciate an actor who can immerse themselves in the world the director has envisioned and create a genuine atmosphere. This class will discuss the art form of doing “nothing” as both stage and screen ensemble with an emphasis on continuity, consistency, and creating a believable world that both the audience and all the actors in the scene can be fully immersed in.

Our classes and workshops are open to students of all abilities and needs. We are currently unable to provide one-on-one instruction, though we will make every attempt to address accommodations for full and successful engagement whenever possible.
If a student requires individual supports, parent/guardian/PCA/teacher/ABA Therapists/etc are welcome to attend.
Please contact Christine Ernst, Director of Education, for more information at

Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain - Reception

Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain - Reception

"Terra Incognita: Exploring New Terrain is a record of my personal journey as an artist as I step out of my comfort zone by dramatically altering the scale of my work. Working intuitively, I moved deep into new terrain where mystery and unpredictability dictate where the process will lead.

This exhibition of large-scale mixed media digital prints is the result of a pilgrimage into the unknown territory of my creative life. While reflecting on my early influences, overcoming fear, and celebrating new discoveries, my emphasis was on process, inner reflection and spontaneity.

Each digital print begins by choosing images from an extensive collection of my scanned original drawings, paintings, monoprints, and photographs. These elements are then layered over one another. Blending modes are used paying careful attention to hues, form and composition. Hard edges, line and color fields combine in surprising ways. Transparent multilayers echo fainter versions of shapes and textures. The finish work may be altered with pastel, paint, colored pencils or inks. By keeping the process fluid, I enjoy a cross-pollination of the various disciplines."

Black and White: Launch Point - Reception

5:00 PM17:00

Black and White: Launch Point - Reception

What do we think about when we hear the words Black and White? For years, contemporary artists have explored both the literal and figurative ideas expressed in the term “black and white."
We propose a contextual exhibition exploring the various ideas of black and white related to our lives and living spaces. We envision a gallery that looks and feels like you are walking in to an artist’s studio, or a collector's home. We hope to create a space that uses artisan created furniture, utilitarian objects, art objects, and lighting to set a stage that highlights each artist’s reference to the idea of Black and White.

We have a carefully curated group of artists representing both 2 dimensional and fine craft media. Sarah Caruso, ceramicist, Andreas Kuehn, photographer, Neil Grant, sculptor, Arthur Levi Rainville, photographer, Jacqueline Reeves, painter, Matthew Bielen, painter, Seth Rainville, ceramicist, Yukimi Matsumoto, glass blower, Barbara Willis, fiber artist, Catherine Pritchett, fiber artist, and Kenneth Wadoski, fine furniture maker, Steve Swain, metalsmith, who will create the “bones” of the space. This eclectic group of artists come from culturally diverse artistic and educational backgrounds and each brings to the space their approach to the concept of “black and white."

Wine and Music Wednesday is an open house held in our Gallery on the third Wednesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm, with wine tasting and live music. The first event was held in March of 2010 and it has become a very popular event at the Center. It’s the perfect way to end your day, start your evening or just join friends for a night out looking at terrific art. Join us for a splendid selection of wines and entertainment featuring Gary Girouard.

Gary Girouard is a self-proclaimed piano ‘troubadour’ – spinning intimate confessions and emotional stories through evocative solo piano melodies. Girouard’s expressive style of contemporary piano combines equal parts classical (think Chopin), and new age (George Winston) into “a masterpiece, a testament to a fluid live recording” (Boston Live), and “a must-have for your solo piano collection” (SoloPiano.com). Girouard’s Naked Piano series is heard by over 3.4 million Pandora listeners and has garnered critical and popular acclaim including multiple “Album of the Year” awards and nominations.

Cape Cod Landscapes:  The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Cape Cod Landscapes: The Art of Seeing Creatively w/ Mark Bowie

Photographically, what makes Cape Cod landscapes so special, is how light interacts with this convergence of land and sea. Learning to see the possibilities and then translate them into images can elevate our picture-taking from the commonplace to the artistic. Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop to explore the Cape from pre-dawn to deep night, visiting some of its finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages. He’ll cover in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to creative images with feeling, that come from the heart.



We will typically shoot for several hours around sunrise and sunset each day, and other times as favorable lighting conditions present themselves. We’ll also photograph the moody blues of twilight and the Cape’s magnificent night sky. The landscape, so varied and photogenic in daylight, becomes ever-more mysterious and enchanting at night. Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.

State of the Waters with Association to Preserve Cape Cod

Cape Cod is connected by water. The groundwater we depend on for drinking water also fills our nearly 1,000 freshwater ponds, part of an extensive water network, many of these ponds drain to over 40 freshwater rivers and streams that discharge to 53 estuaries along 559 miles of coastline bordering the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound and Buzzards Bay.So, how healthy are our waters?

What do we know about the quality of the Cape’s waters and what don’t we know? With funding from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust, the Association to Preserve Cape Cod set out to answer these questions by gathering and evaluating existing water quality data and then making this information available to the public. APCC’s executive director, Andrew Gottlieb will share the findings and explain “STATE OF THE WATERS: Cape Cod.”

Free to the Public. Registration is appreciated!To register call 508-362-6636, email SturgisReference@comcast.net or online at http://www.sturgislibrary.org/event2/state-of-the-waters/

SKA-lloween with The NB Rude Boys

Celebrate Halloween with us as we rock out with The NB Rude Boys for SkA-lloween, October 25th from 6-9 pm at the brewery!

SKA - Three different types: "Traditional", "2-Tone" and "3rd Wave". Traditional came about in the late 1950s as new dance music straight out of Jamaica. 2-Tone is named such because whites and blacks came together to form ska bands to spread unity in the 1970s. 3rd Wave is when ska hit America in the late 1980s, and added a bit of punk flair.

Also a very flexible style of music, incorporateable into other styles, which is why it's still around today and has such a large and diverse fan base.

Love Letters from The Front

Love Letters from The Front

Sunday, October 27, at 3pm. Performers Robert DiCicco and Cyndy Gayle present Love Letter from the Front, a reading with music and images. The 1940s were the golden age of the American Songbook. It would seem that WWII and the music from that era go hand-in-hand. World War II was the centerpiece of the decade and, as one music critic wrote, "In a very real sense, American popular music was the popular music of World War II." The war was an emotional period, and these songs tapped a reservoir of emotions: hope, longing, loneliness, and love. Love Letters From The Front takes us back in time to the war years of 1940-1945 when American GI's were sending off letters to their spouses and loved ones. This production showcases some of those letters with the appropriate song from that era as a backdrop. We take time out to honor those brave men and women who fought valiantly for our country during that tumultuous time, and will look forward to an evening of beautiful music and hope through Love Letters from The Front. $20. Complimentary refreshments. For tickets click here, or call 508-394-7100.

18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball: Time Travel Revelry

18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball: Time Travel Revelry

Cotuit Center for the Arts will hold its 18th Annual Art and Souls Masquerade Ball, Time Travel Revelry, on Saturday, October 27, at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $10.

Time Travel is the theme of this year’s horrifyingly fun Halloween dance party. There will be a DJ, dancing, time-travel-themed decorations, and “bone-chilling” refreshments, and, if past Art and Souls Balls are any indication, a multitude of hilarious, frightening, and delightfully creative costumes.

“This is a wide-open category,” said Michelle law, coordinator of the ball and a member of CCftA’s curatorial committee. “Come as a time traveler, a time machine, or anyone from any period in history, past or future—from a sweet medieval princess to a 25th-century avenging alien. I’m always excited to see how people interpret the theme—they do such imaginative things.”

Law has put a link to a list of time travel books and movies on the Center’s Facebook page and website. “There is a huge variety of books and movies to inspire party-goers,” said Law, “from classics like Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Twain’s “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court,” and H.G. Wells’ “The Time Machine,” to contemporary movies like “The Planet of the Apes,” “Groundhog Day,” “Time after Time,” “Midnight in Paris,” and “Back to the Future,” there is something to inspire everyone. And, of course, people are always encouraged to put their own spin on the theme.”

Many attendees make their own costumes, from the very simple to the intricately crafted. Couples and groups are encouraged to develop themed costumes.

“But, you don’t have to have an elaborate or handmade costume to have fun,” said Law. “A mask or make-up will get you into the party mood too.”

Law is happy to give costume hints. She says that many people find inexpensive costume materials at vintage stores and consignment shops. “Do take into account safety considerations,” she said. “Make sure the costume does not restrict your movement or your vision.”

There will be prizes for Funniest, Scariest, Group, and Best Time Travel-themed costumes.

Cotuit Center for the Arts is at 4404 Route 28 in Cotuit. For more information, visit artsonthecape.org or call 508-428-0669.

Artwork Submissions for Winter Art 2020: Heroes and Villains at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

From the wilds of nature, classic tales, popular tunes, and computer-generated creations, Heroes and Villains abound!

Heroes and villains come in many different forms: From comic book characters to a favorite teacher to Mother Nature, heroes can inspire us to be better and do better. Likewise, villains from Darth Vader to world dictators to ocean polluters, show us what we can become when we give in to our darker selves.

We’d like you to show our young audience your interpretation of heroes and villains through your artwork.

Interactive Fun for Kids

Keeping younger arts patrons in mind, artwork for the show will be displayed at a height of 4 feet throughout the exhibit – right at children’s eye level and some of the artists themselves will drop in to discuss their works with the students as they tour the exhibit. The visit to Heroes and Villains is accompanied by a hands-on workshop in the Art Studio, where students will create their own piece inspired by the exhibition.

LOCATION: Cotuit Center for the Arts, 4404 Falmouth Rd, Cotuit, MA, 02635

KEY DATES:

11 Nov 2019 deadline for submission

9 Dec 2019 notification to artists

An Evening with Matt Nakoa

7:30 PM19:30

An Evening with Matt Nakoa

"Nakoa does not disappoint. In fact, between his piano chops, charismatic stage presence, and heartfelt originals on guitar, he drops jaws.”

The Boston Globe

MATT NAKOA is an internationally touring singer/songwriter, recently appearing at The White House, throughout India, and regularly with folk icon Tom Rush. Growing up on a small goat farm in rural NY State, Matt discovered music as a means of teenage escape and trained to be a concert pianist. Matt was ultimately accepted as a vocalist to Berklee College of Music where he studied alongside soon-to-be Grammy winners St. Vincent and Esperanza Spalding among others. After school, Matt landed in NYC’s vibrant piano bar scene. There he quickly became a star performer at Manhattan’s famous Brandy’s Piano Bar, with lines waiting outside the door each Saturday night.

As if illustrating two sides of himself, Matt’s first album, Light In The Dark (2012), is a sweeping pop opus, while A Dozen Other Loves (2014) explores an intimate acoustic palette. Across the board his song craft has garnered awards, including a win at Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New Folk Competition. Though not easily pinned down, “In sum,” as a recent review on CoverLayDown.com put it, “Matt Nakoa is a musical adept, one of those well kept secrets you just can’t help but celebrate: intimate and genuine, soulful and bittersweet, a rich poetic songbook sung in praise to a complicated, emotionally present world.”

Stop, Look, & Listen: Poetry with Marjorie Block, Late Fall 2019

Walt Whitman said, “I think I will do nothing for a long time but listen.” Do you ever wish you could stop and simply listen? Together we will stop. We will look and listen to the world around us inside and outside of ourselves. We’ll keep a list of what we see and hear. We’ll play with these ordinary words and use them to write our feelings into poems. A secret: poetry lets you show how you feel without having to tell the whole story. Most importantly I want to say we are not going to grade ourselves in any way! So come and do nothing but listen to each other’s words. Listen to the songs of ourselves.

Flowers in the Desert

After 14 years of marriage, Britt and Joe called it quits, so Joe is surprised when, three years later, Britt asks him to try again. Cheater Joe still loves his ex and their boys, so he’s willing to go along with date-nights and counseling — until he realizes that Britt has a very specific agenda.

This play was a finalist in the inaugural contest of the American Association of Community Theaters.

Written by Donna Hoke, presented by Jade Schuyler.

Gretchen Romey-Tanzer - Opening Reception

Gretchen Romey-Tanzer - Opening Reception

November 8 – December 22

Winter Art Exhibition Opening Reception:
Friday, November 8, 4:30pm – 6:00pm

Weaver Gretchen Romey-Tanzer uses the double layer technique, intricate design, and brilliantly colored cotton fiber to create works that appear to collect light, cast shadow and sparkle with prismatic ebullience. Her mastery is in her ability to create the appearance of visual depth, and to provide the illusion of three dimensions, through contrasting and analogous color placement.  Notable for the complexity of its strong graphic shapes and abstract alignment of patterns, City Planning, her most recent work, was inspired by hours spent in Chicago traffic. It took the artist nearly four years to execute, as it evolved from preliminary sketches, drawings, and paintings through to the completed woven artwork. Additional selections from her current projects, influenced by road maps and traffic patterns, will be among the works on view.

Romey-Tanzer has been weaving for over 35 years and is a 2019 recipient of the prestigious Artist Fellowship Award in Crafts from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. She has received numerous awards, including the top exhibitors prize in both Baltimore and Crafts at the Castle, Boston, and her work is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  She weaves and teaches out of her studio in Brewster, MA.

Soo Sunny Park: Boundary Conditions - Reception

The artist Soo Sunny Park is known for creating monumental, immersive installations that transform their environments into realms of moving light, reflection, and shadow. In Boundary Conditions, she weaves together a metal grid with iridescent Plexiglas that transmits, reflects, and refracts daylight to create an otherworldly installation. Changing light conditions reveal different facets of the sculpture, so that during different times of day it shifts from translucent and clear to colorful and prismatic.

Auditions for DRIVING MISS DAISY

Auditions for DRIVING MISS DAISY

Open auditions for Alfred Uhry's Pulizter Prize winning play, DRIVING MISS DAISY, will be held on November 12 and 13 at 7:00 PM at the Barnstable Comedy Club, 3171 Main Street, Rte. 6A in Barnstable. Director Ann M. Ring, seeks 1 female age 60-75 , an African-American male, age 50-60 and a 35-45 male. Cast descriptions and more information may be viewed online at www.BarnstableComedyClub.org. Actors will be asked to read from the script. Perusal scripts are available at the Sturgis Library and the Hyannis Public Library. Production Dates: January 9-26, 2020.

This award winning comedy-drama is a warm-hearted, humorous and an affecting study of the unlikely twenty-five year friendship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, uneducated, soft-spoken black man. This much-loved story explores themes of race, prejudice, friendship, and aging in a way that makes it movingly clear that they have both come to realize that they have more in common than they ever believed possible.

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2ND Wednesday Theater at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

2nd Wednesday Theater: a monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classics, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works.

On November 13, the Cotuit Center for the Arts presents a staged reading of Susan Lumenello’s new comedy The Sherlock Problem.

Arthur Conan Doyle has a problem: the great detective Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous, most beloved character.

At first, Arthur brims with excitement over Sherlock’s arrival. The young doctor and would-be author hopes his brainchild will bring him recognition and rescue him from a dull, unprofitable medical practice. That’s exactly what Sherlock does.

But as they do in any relationship, things change. The Sherlock stories prove wildly successful, beyond even Arthur’s expectations. So famous does Sherlock become that he outshines his creator, and the demand for more stories grows and grows. Arthur comes to hate Sherlock. And so, with pen in hand, he does something about it.

Author Susan Lumenello says of The Sherlock Problem, “The Sherlock canon has been well tried for a reason – Holmes is a fascinating character. But the fraught and complicated relationship between Arthur Conan Doyle and his signature creation has never been fully explored.”

Directed by Sue Lindholm.

Susan Lumenello’s one-act play Buzz was performed at the Boston Theater Marathon; her one-act The Annoying Minstrels was performed at the Cotuit Center for the Arts; her full-length comedy Easy to Love was given a staged reading at the Provincetown Theatre; and Dreamsville, a full-length, had a staged reading at the Barnstable Comedy Club in August 2019.

Doctor Dolittle

Doctor Dolittle

The classic tale of kindness to animals trots, crawls and flies onto the stage in Doctor Dolittle, the big Broadway-sized family musical. All of the characters we've come to love through the stories of Hugh Lofting and the magical movie musical are given new life in the stage version.

The musical tells the classic tale of a wacky but kind Doctor who can talk to animals. The show takes the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. Doctor Dolittle is wrongly accused of murder and, once pronounced innocent, continues with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail – the oldest and wisest of the creatures on earth.

Book, music, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. Directed by Jay Stewart.

Opens Tuesday, November 19 at 7:30PM

Fridays at 7:30PM, Saturdays at 5:00PM, Sundays at 2:00PM
