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!!

The members are, Micah Christian, a teacher from Randolph, MA and the lead singer for the group; Cordaro Rodriguez, an attorney from Charlotte, NC, is pianist and guitarist; Kendall Ramseur, a performer and cello instructor from Charlotte, NC is cellist and vocals; and Mason Morton, a teacher from Atlanta, GA, is the harpist.

The Sea Captain's Nutcracker

The Sea Captain's Nutcracker

  • CC Community College Tilden Arts Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Cape Cod holiday classic, The Sea Captain's Nutcracker, makes its return to the stage with three performances over Thanksgiving weekend! Directed by Laura Sciortino,  Artistic Director of Falmouth’s Turning Pointe Dance Studio. 

The shows are held at the Tilden Arts Center at the Cape Cod Community College on Saturday, November 24 at 2pm and 6pm and Sunday, November 25 at 2pm.  

This lovely production is an excellent way to kick off your holiday season and is perfect for all ages.  The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker, set to the original Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker score, opens in a Chatham Sea Captain’s home in the mid-1800’s.  Local authors Donna Smith & Anne LeClaire’s script transports the audience on an enchanting journey through local history and folklore invoking elements of the natural environs of Cape Cod. The heroic battle scene takes place aboard a sailing ship as it is attacked by mooncussers off the coast of Eastham; a swift and violent storm off Monomoy Point then threatens the voyage.  The salty old Sea Captain, who replaces the traditional Drosselmeyer character, returns home to Chatham bearing exotic gifts from his voyages for Clara.  Audiences will be charmed by the Waltz of the Sea Grass and will be thrilled by the Dance of the Icy Winds.
