Judy Collins in Concert at the Tilden Arts Center

Payomet & Cotuit Center for the Arts are ecstatic to welcome Judy Collins at Tilden Arts Center in West Barnstable!!

Few singers have the staying power of folk icon, Grammy award winner and legend Judy Collins. For nearly 45 illustrious years, her dulcet tones have graced our ears, and her poetic lyrics have galvanized a generation. She has released more than 40 albums, has had numerous Top 10 hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums.

Judy has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

As creatively vigorous as ever, Judy is still writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. She continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Schuyler Grant at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar

Schuyler Grant, (born January 16, 1990) is an American songwriter and performer based out of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

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 (available at www.schuylergrantmusic.bandcamp.com).

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.

Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham Headlines the Cape Cod Melody Tent

Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham Headlines the Cape Cod Melody Tent

Record-breaking global Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham, is bringing his cast of characters on the road, as America’s favorite ventriloquist tours North America on his 60-city Passively Aggressive tour through spring 2018. Tickets on sale now at jeffdunham.com.

Dunham recently released his latest stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix in September 2017. The special, filmed in Dublin Ireland, features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters for a gleeful skewering of family and politics. Dunham and his famous cohorts Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut also consider what a new member to their already dysfunctional family could mean, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster. 

Dunham, a Guinness World Record holder for “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour,” has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and innovation. With over a million YouTube subscribers amassing over a billion views, he has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world, leading to record-breaking viewership with his comedy specials on Comedy Central and NBC. His 2015 stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Primetime and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.

And finally, adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments, Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy was recognized when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, commemorating over two decades of superstardom. Said Dunham recently, “When I moved to Los Angeles in 1988 with a car full of clothes and a couple of dummies, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would be tripping over my own star on the Walk of Fame. It’s truly fantastic and a great honor; I just hope it’s not in front of an adult store. Okay, actually, that would be hilarious.”

Nancy Witter’s new show opened in New York City on Thursday September 21st at Don’t Tell Mama to rave reviews! This new show has Nancy regaling her audiences with stories of her unique childhood growing up in a large Irish Cathoholic family. Nancy learned early on, thanks to her happy hopeful and hung-over parents how to find the comedy in catastrophes, and hope in despair.
Growing up in a very large Irish “Cathaholic” family, and struggling as a working single mother for 20 years, gave Nancy Witter all the comedic material she needed to sustain her thoughout her long-standing comedy career. Nancy has won three New York City MAC Awards for “Outstanding Female Comedian” and a MAC Award for her one woman show “Dignity Check… Please”. Nancy was one of five finalists on Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America” in 2005. Soon after, she joined two other finalists and for five years they toured in sold out theaters across the country in the hit comedy show “Mama’s Night Out”. “The New York Times” has described Nancy as having “a razor sharp wit” and Backstage Magazine named her to their list of “Comedy Best Bets”. Nancy performs at comedy venues throughout New York City and the country.
