Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

7:30 PM19:30

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Second Wednesday Theater is a monthly play-reading series of rarely performed classics, undiscovered gems, and exciting new works. Our November offering is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams.

In a plantation house, a family celebrates the sixty-fifth birthday of Big Daddy, as they sentimentally dub him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed, sins of the past and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds. Maggie, Big Daddy's daughter-in-law, wants to give him the news that she's finally become pregnant by Big Daddy's favorite son, Brick, but Brick won't cooperate in Maggie's plans and prefers to stay in a mild alcoholic haze the entire length of his visit. Maggie has her own interests at heart in wanting to become pregnant, of course, but she also wants to make amends to Brick for an error in judgment that nearly cost her her marriage. Swarming around Maggie and Brick are their intrusive, conniving relatives, all eager to see Maggie put in her place and Brick tumbled from his position of most-beloved son. By evening's end, Maggie's ingenuity, fortitude and passion will set things right, and Brick's love for his father, never before expressed, will retrieve him from his path of destruction and return him, helplessly, to Maggie's loving arms.

An Evening with Tom Rush and Matt Nakoa

An Evening with Tom Rush and Matt Nakoa

A music legend the world over, singer-songwriter and folk rock pioneer Tom Rush brings his unique brand of blues-influenced folk/rock music to Cotuit. As a founding father of the folk rock genre, he's been credited with launching the careers of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Jackson Browne. From his early days at Club 47, through 16 albums, to his sold out Club 47 concert series, Rush is known not only for his own wonderfully written songs filled with healthy doses of both folk and blues influences but also for supporting and recording those of emerging artists such as Mitchell, Eric von Schmidt and Eric Kaz. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists.

Matt Nakoa’s first solo album, Light In The Dark (2012), is an eclectic pop opus. In contrast, A Dozen Other Loves (2014), explores a simple acoustic palette. This intimate collection has earned many songwriting awards, including a win at Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New Folk Competition. Additionally, Matt’s piano music has received favorable reviews in publications including The New York Times, and his film scoring has been featured by Disney. Matt now tours internationally, recently performing at The White House, throughout India, and regularly with folk music icon Tom Rush.

Publishing and Editing: A Conversation with Claire Polders, Daniel Presley, and Corey Farrenkopf

Topics include: 

How to pitch your novel/screenplay/story collection
How to submit to agents, magazines, and editors
How to market your writing
How to write a catchy synopsis
The steps to publishing novels and memoirs
Dealing with rejection
How to edit your work, and much more!

The Dreaded Question What is your book about? Every author will have to answer that question sooner or later. It’s best to be prepared. How you hook a reader is how you hook an agent, a publisher, a producer, and so on. What does high-concept mean and why does the market want it? What is an elevator pitch? From personal experiences at the Cannes Film Festival to concrete advice on how to write a catchy synopsis, Daniel Presley will speak about how best to answer the dreaded question.

The Long Game of Short Work The road to a published novel or memoir often begins with the publication of short work. Not only to capture an agent’s attention and assemble a body of work, but also to practice and benefit from feedback. From the submission process and dealing with rejection to social interaction and self-promotion, Claire Polders will speak about how to find your place in the writers’ community.

Food from a Christmas Carol

"The moment Scrooge's hand was on the lock, a strange voice called him by his name, and bade him enter. He obeyed. It was his own room. There was no doubt about that. But it had undergone a surprising transformation... Heaped up on the floor, to form a kind of throne, were turkeys, geese, game, poultry, brawn, great joints of meat, sucking-pigs, long wreaths of sausages, mince-pies, plum-puddings, barrels of oysters, red-hot chestnuts, cherry-cheeked apples, juicy oranges, luscious pears, immense twelfth-cakes, and seething bowls of punch, that made the chamber dim with their delicious steam..."

A week to go, all the lists have been mailed, preparations are still being made so let's enjoy a brief respite from all of it. We will dine on oysters, suckling pig, goose and cheeses!! Wash it down with holiday bubbles and Bordeaux!!

In a famous scene from the movie Amadeus, Mozart dictates his final opus to his rival Salieri, feverish on his deathbed as he hears the beautiful music in his head.

Jung-Ho Pak looks at the myths and facts behind Mozart's Requiem, an extraordinary affirmation of the power of the human spirit, and we perform the choral masterpiece from our hearts with our guest artists Musica Sacra, a gifted early music choral group. Incredibly, the Cape Symphony has never played Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music) until now, although this tuneful serenade may be his most popular work.

The Best of the Woods Hole Film Festival

Keepers of the Light by Liz Witham and Ken Wentworth, feature documentary, 2018 | 61 min. | USA

Synopsis

Built over 200 years ago in a small Wampanoag community at the tip of an island in the Atlantic, the Gay Head Lighthouse is one of America's most famous beacons. From whaling days to electrification, "Keepers of the Light" tells the story of evolving technology, heroism and shipwrecks, and the people who are called upon in each generation to keep the light, woven with the story of the recent race against time to save the historic beacon from falling over the edge of the rapidly eroding cliffs.

At the end of the 18th century, as whaling Captains amassed fortunes from the oil of whales, Senator Peleg from Massachusetts requested the light to protect ships from the treacherous “Devil’s Bridge.” President John Adams authorized the lighthouse and the Federal taking of the property to put it on. The check to pay for its construction was cut by Alexander Hamilton. Paul Revere supplied metal for the roof.

Before American highways, the waterways off of the East Coast were an important way to transport goods and commodities up and down the coast and beyond. Martha’s Vineyard Sound, at the height of its nautical traffic, was second only to the English Channel in number of vessels per day. It was in the context of the importance of whale’s oil and then the industrial revolution that the Gay Head Lighthouse became one of the most important lighthouses on the East Coast.

In recent years, it became clear that the receding cliff was beginning to threaten the lighthouse itself. The community understood that if they did not take decisive action, the lighthouse would be lost forever. In 2013, the lighthouse was declared one of America’s 11 most endangered places, and the island’s residents began to rally to save the iconic lighthouse from the encroaching edge of the cliff. The story of the lighthouse quickly became of interest around the world, and journalists encroached on the town of Aquinnah from all corners of the globe, attracted by the story of the Gay Head Light and the community’s efforts to save her. The film weaves the modern narrative arc of community efforts to save the light with the history of the lighthouse. 

Winner, Director's Choice Award, Emerging New England Filmmaker (2018), sponsored by Talamas. The filmmakers will participate in a post-screening Q&A.

Sunset trips: 2 PM- After sunset
Sept 7
Sept 23
Oct 5
Oct 21

COST: Day Trip $70 Members/$95 Non-Members
Proceeds benefit the SNB house at the Halfway Point program
 

Application: SNB Art Excursion 2018

A quiet time to create . . .

In the quiet of Sandy Neck Beach Park, the rustic cottage at the halfway point stands in the middle of the dunes, marsh and water.  It provides solitude, scenic landscapes and an endless source of beauty and inspiration. The Town of Barnstable, in partnership with the Cape Cod Art Association, offers day excursions to this unspoiled landscape. It is a special place to create and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. From time to time a Sandy Neck Beach Park naturalist will travel out with the group and share their firsthand knowledge and expertise of this “living museum”.

Who is this for?   This artist experience is for the plein air painter, photographer, musician, writer or anyone who craves some time away to create without the usual everyday interruptions.  The cottage is very rustic.  While out you will be exposed to the elements, and need to dress appropriately.

When can I go?   Trips are often scheduled for September and October as the colors in the marsh are heightened by the sun, as well as early and late spring.  You will be transported by a Beach Ranger for the 3.5 mile drive through the dunes.   The excursions are six hours long, either 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or a later departure with an after sunset return.  For full details and FAQ’s, visit:  www.CapeCodArtCenter.org or www.HyArtsDistrict.com.

How do I sign up?   The cost of a day trip is $70.  If you are not a Cape Cod Art Center member, there is an additional excursion fee of $25 per trip.   Participants have asked if they can give more and others have donated a portion of the proceeds they made from the sale of one of their art pieces created while out at the Halfway House.  All donations are welcome.  Donations and program fees directly support this program.  Complete the application form and mail or email your form to the indicated address.

 

Applications will be considered as they are received.  Excursion dates will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. A maximum of ten people can be transported out to the cabin for a day. Trips may be postponed or cancelled due to low enrollment or inclement weather.  If this is the case, participants will receive a full refund. Cancellations by a participant up to two weeks prior to date, will receive a refund less $25 processing fee. Cancellations by participant within two weeks of excursion will only receive a refund if spot is filled.  A processing fee of $25 will be charged.

Cape Cod: Light on the Landscape with Mark Bowie

Cape Cod: Light on the Landscape
with Mark Bowie

October 2018: Thursday, Oct 18-Sunday, Oct 21- starting at 6:30PM Thursday

Cost: Members $330  Non-Members $400

Program Description

It all starts with the light… and the Cape has a special quality of light.  Here it interacts with the convergence of land and sea, the salty atmosphere, a variety of coastal environments and distinctive subject matter, all of which make this place unique.  In this brand new workshop, we’ll explore Cape light from pre-dawn to deep night, to experience the essence of this place and craft meaningful images — images with feeling, that come from the heart.

Professional landscape photographer and night shooting expert Mark Bowie will lead this power-packed workshop on the innovative techniques he uses for taking extraordinary landscape imagery.  He will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, dunes, coastal waterways, lighthouses and fishing villages.  Our schedule and selection of shooting locations will remain flexible to take best advantage of the weather and lighting conditions.  Indoor instructional sessions will be held at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable.  Mark will explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll also offer strategies, tips and techniques for the field and the digital darkroom on:

 

  • The quality, direction and color of light
  • Reading weather and shooting the light
  • The interaction of light and subject matter
  • Shooting at sunrise, sunset, twilight and at night
  • Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  • Seeing from different vantage points
  • Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  • Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  • Determining exposure at night
  • Achieving critical focus-day and night
  • Using Live View
  • Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  • Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  • Targeting color and tonal palettes
  • The artistry of long exposures
  • Creating expressionistic abstracts
  • Shooting multiple exposures — layer masks, HDR’s, panoramas, star trails and time-lapse sequences — and blending them with state-of-the-art software
  • Focus stackingto maximize depth of field
  • Processing images for maximum impact

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to take their landscape imagery to new levels.  Join Mark to explore the wonders of Cape Cod light.  “Find the light and shoot what’s in it.”

 

Bio:

Mark Bowie is a professional nature photographer, writer and much sought after public speaker.  His work has been published internationally in books, on calendars and posters, and in advertising media.  His first two coffee table books, Adirondack Waters and In Stoddard’s Footsteps have become landmark regional publications.  They were followed by The Adirondacks: In Celebration of the Seasons.  He is an expert on night photography and has produced two comprehensive e-books on it: The Light of Midnight: Photographing the Landscape at Night, and After Midnight: Night Photography by Example.  He has also produced an e-book on his remarkable Finding November project, his search to find the hidden beauty of this under-appreciated month.  For more on his work, see www.markbowie.com.

 

What To Bring

For questions contact Mark Bowie at mrbowie@earthlink.net

Photo Equipment Suggestions

In addition to all your basic equipment like cameras and lenses, I consider the following items important.  You can learn more about them at the workshop, but I made this checklist as a reminder to bring them if you already own them.  Items essential to this workshop are in bold:

Camera  – and extra camera body if you have one, just in case.

Lenses – Lenses from wide-angle zooms to telephotos will be of use on this workshop.  Also consider bringing your other favorite lenses, including macro and fast super wide-angle lenses in the 14-24mm range, especially for night photography.

Tripod – Light levels are usually too low early in the day and at night to photograph properly without a sturdy tripod.  If you need to purchase one, I can offer recommendations.  Hunt’s Photo often offers discount specials to my students.

Lots of Memory Card Storage.

Camera Battery Charger and Extra Batteries.

Non-abrasive Lens Cleaning Cloth and Wipes.

Polarizing Filter

Neutral Density (ND) Filters, Graduated Neutral Density Filters – To extend exposure times.  I use Tiffen 3- and 6-stop IR neutral density filters.  See www.tiffen.com.  Lee Filters also makes quality filters.  See www.leefilters.com.

Graduated Neutral Density Filters – Primarily for daytime use.  I use Singh-Ray 2-stop soft and 3-stop hard-edge graduated filters.  See www.singh-ray.com/grndgrads.html.

Shutter Release ­­– You can use a locking cable release, a wireless remote, or the camera’s self-timer (usually good only for exposures up to 30 seconds).  Shutter releases are available for specific camera models, from simple units that only trip the shutter, to more advanced units that allow the photographer to program exposure time, count down the exposure, shoot multiple exposures and timed intervals. These are available from photo retailers, including Hunts Photo and Video.  I use a wireless remote shutter release, the hahnel Giga T Pro II, about $99.

Intervalometer – For time-lapse photography.  If you are a Canon shooter, consider the Canon TC-80N3 Remote timer, or an equivalent. See

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/164271-REG/Canon_2477A002_Timer_Remote_Controller_TC_80N3.html.

 

Here’s a less expensive alternative, but identical in structure and function: http://www.amazon.com/Cowboystudio-Timer-Remote-Control-Shutter/dp/B003PFYKGW/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1378831815&sr=8-6&keywords=canon+remote+timer.

 

 

Many Nikons have a built-in intervalometer, or you can use the Nikon MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord, about $190.  See http://www.huntsphotoandvideo.com/detail_page.cfm?ProductID=27032&mfg=Nikon&show=yes.  My hahnel Giga T Pro II remote has the same features for about half the price.

Flashlights &/or Headlamp – preferably with a red light, or cover with a red filter to prevent stray light from distracting others during night photography sessions.  Bring both small and large lights for light painting.  Bring other light sources, like LED’s or glow sticks, for painting with wild colors.

Rain/snow Cover – For camera and lens protection.  An inexpensive plastic shower cap works well in many instances.

Heat wraps – placed around the lens barrel to inhibit condensation.  I use Therma-Care heat wraps and similar brands.  About $5 for a box of 3.

Small towel, cloth or gaffer’s tape for covering the viewfinder to prevent light leak during long exposures.  Most cameras come with a viewfinder cover, but they’re often inconvenient to use.

Battery-powered Alarm Clock/Watch

Cell Phone.

 

Computer Equipment Suggestions

Laptop Computer – I highly recommend bringing your own laptop computer for downloading, processing and viewing your images.

Processing Software – Good choices include Adobe Lightroom, Elements, and Photoshop. We use Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography Plan, about $10/month.  Free 30-day trials of these programs are available from Adobe.

To create time-lapse movies you may also want the following software:

  1. Lightroom. A free trial version is available at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_lightroom

 

  1. QuickTime Pro: $29.99. Available at: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/extending/
  2. LRTimelapse: The free down load will allow you to load up to 400 images: http://lrtimelapse.com/download/.This software is particularly good at reducing flicker.

Back-up device – Such as an external hard drive.

Clothing & Outdoor Gear Suggestions

Warm Clothing – It is preferable to dress in warm layers for field trips as temperatures can change significantly and quickly.  Night can be very chilly at this time of year.

Warm Jacket or Coat.

Fleece Underlayer/Wool Sweater – Can be added or removed as the temperature falls or rises.

Rain Jacket & Pants – For wind as well as rain protection.

Warm Gloves/Mittens, Hat, and Hiking Boots or Sneakers.  Several pairs of warm, moisture-wicking socks.  Two pair of footwear is wise, in case one gets wet.  Sandals or muck boots are great for getting in the ocean and streams.

Hand Warmers.  Foot warmers.

Dress for the indoor sessions will be casual.

Other Suggestions

Water bottle.

Energy bars or other snacks.

The Best of the Woods Hole Film Festival

Afghan Cycles by Sarah Menzies and Shannon Galpin, feature documentary, 2018 | 90 | USA and Afghanistan

Synopsis

What lengths would you go to in order to ride a bicycle? Following a new generation of young Afghan women cyclists, Afghan Cycles uses the bicycle to tell a story of women’s rights - human rights - and the struggles faced by Afghan women on a daily basis, from discrimination to abuse, to the oppressive silencing of their voices in all aspects of contemporary society. These women ride despite cultural barriers, despite infrastructure, and despite death threats, embracing the power and freedom that comes with the sport.

Afghan Cycles follows members of the National Cycling Team in Kabul, and young riders in the Bamiyan region who are mountain bikes to commute to school and run errands. For all of them, the bicycle is a symbol of freedom. But sometimes, the danger and obstacles can prove too much, as we learn when one of the main characters flees to France to secure a better situation and future for herself and her family.

The 2,000-acre Schoodic Peninsula offers a wide array of opportunities to experience Maine’s rugged coast from the cliffs at Raven’s Nest to the summit of Schoodic Head along a spruce and fir trail to the giant slabs of pink granite that extend into the open Atlantic at Schoodic Point.

Nearby the seaside villages of Birch Harbor, Prospect Harbor and the quaint Corea will be an opportunity to photograph classic downeast Maine.

ABOUT WORKSHOP:

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henri David Thoreau

The art of seeing is the active process of observing the world around us with deliberate thoughtfulness. In photography it’s what you do with what you see that counts. Subject matter provides the building blocks while composition acts like glue holding it all together, and light sets the stage for capturing a moment capable of conveying a sense of being there.

The workshop begins on Thursday with an orientation and power point presentation on “The Art of Landscape Photography” covering the aesthetics of photography and technical aspects of digital imaging.

The workshop features approximately 15 hours in the field with 3-hour sessions beginning each day in the pre-dawn and in the afternoons until twilight. Ronald had an intimate knowledge of these regions and designs an itinerary based on habitat, tides, and weather. Walking distances will vary from roadside vantage points to moderate trail hikes.

Complimenting the field experience will be 8-10 hours of classroom time where we will meet each day for an open dialogue covering subjects from capture to post processing and how to create a digital workflow using Lightroom and Photoshop. In the digital age our ability to teach has been considerably enhanced. Individual instruction, viewing images and group critiques to evaluate results is done in an environment that seeks to help you build confidence in your creative and technical skills and become a better photographer.
