Brazen Belles Summer Striptacular!

The Brazen Belles are one of New England’s premiere Burlesque troupes. These dangerous flirts, rowdy rabble-rousers, and saucy comediennes have been teasing their way throughout the country to sold out audiences since 2012. Winners of the Las vegas Burlesque Festival in 2015, They also performed at The Burlesque Hall of Fame’s “Movers, Shakers and Innovators” showcase 2016. The Belles bring a variety of talents: singing, dancing, wit, sass, and of course seduction to the stage. They will have you laughing, lusting, and longing for more!

Queens of the corset, sirens of the stage, dolls of the dance floor! WE ARE YOUR VILLAGE VAUDEVILLE.

Burlesque is a diverse form of entertainment pulling theatrical, dance, and sketch comedy elements from many historical eras together to provide a creative spin on society’s traditional, and often oppressive, stereotypes of women. While the art of burlesque includes acts of a sexual nature, the goal of performing these expressions is never intended to be offensive of harmful to others, but rather empowering, particularly to women, by embracing the existence of female sexuality in light of differing body types, genders, race and ethnicity, upbringings, and so on. Our troupe stands in firm belief that this beautiful art form is relevant in its mission and provides important empowerment to our friends, family, local community and Beyond!

Schuyler Grant Trio at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar
Aug

7:00 PM19:00

Schuyler Grant Trio 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).

Salon of Shorts - July

Salon of Shorts - July

Ongoing: 3rd Wednesday of every month, 7:30pm
Cotuit Center for the Arts offers an open mic series called Salon of Shorts on the third Wednesday of each month in the Art Studio. Award-winning poets, playwrights, and spoken word performers Christine Rathbun Ernst and Gregory Hischak host the series, which encompasses all types of performances: poetry, storytelling, essay reading, music, performance art, improv, and stand-up.

“Everyone has in them five minutes of good storytelling, song, stand-up—even genius,” said Ernst.

“This is the perfect venue to try something new,” said Ernst, “to try out new material, and to find a new audience.”

Teaming with Ernst is Gregory Hischak, who has been hosting an open mic at O’Shea’s in West Yarmouth until recently.

“I have wanted to do an open mic on the mid-Cape for a long time,” said Ernst, “and, when Greg became available after the O’Shea’s open mic ended, I was eager to involve him in this new project. I am a big fan of his work and we have a complimentary performance style.”

Both Ernst and Hischak will perform at Salon of Shorts, which has already attracted considerable interest from local poets and musicians.

Gregory Hischak’s book, “Parts & Labour,” was published in 2012. It contains poetry, a play, and an interview the author. His poetry has been published in “Bellingham Revue,” “Green Mountain Review,” “Mid-America Poetry Review,” “Third Coast,” and other journals. He has toured and performed with spoken word troupes and has written several plays which had been performed by regional theaters across the country. His play, “Center of Gravity” was the 2010 winner of the Clauder Prize for New England Playwrights and was a 2011 finalist with the Massachusetts Cultural Council for playwriting, in addition to other awards.

Christine Rathbun Ernst’s recent shows include “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch” and “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping,” which she has performed to sold-out audiences across the Cape. She will present her third show in the series at CCftA this summer. She describes her work as “the funny unapologetic, wickedly honest, poignant, hell-bent, pissed-off one breasted, loudmouth story of one woman’s examined life witty quirky unforgettable theatre of self-discovery, good story-telling, and pointed social commentary.” She has performed one-woman shows and at open mics throughout New England and is a two-time Mass Cultural Council Artist Grant finalist.

Each performer is limited to five minutes, including set-up.

Admission to Salon of Shorts is free.

“This is the perfect venue to try something new,” said Ernst, “to try out new material, and to find a new audience.”

Teaming with Ernst is Gregory Hischak, who has been hosting an open mic at O’Shea’s in West Yarmouth until recently.

“I have wanted to do an open mic on the mid-Cape for a long time,” said Ernst, “and, when Greg became available after the O’Shea’s open mic ended, I was eager to involve him in this new project. I am a big fan of his work and we have a complimentary performance style.”

Both Ernst and Hischak will perform at Salon of Shorts, which has already attracted considerable interest from local poets and musicians.

Gregory Hischak’s book, “Parts & Labour,” was published in 2012. It contains poetry, a play, and an interview the author. His poetry has been published in “Bellingham Revue,” “Green Mountain Review,” “Mid-America Poetry Review,” “Third Coast,” and other journals. He has toured and performed with spoken word troupes and has written several plays which had been performed by regional theaters across the country. His play, “Center of Gravity” was the 2010 winner of the Clauder Prize for New England Playwrights and was a 2011 finalist with the Massachusetts Cultural Council for playwriting, in addition to other awards.

Christine Rathbun Ernst’s recent shows include “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch” and “The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping,” which she has performed to sold-out audiences across the Cape. She will present her third show in the series at CCftA this summer. She describes her work as “the funny unapologetic, wickedly honest, poignant, hell-bent, pissed-off one breasted, loudmouth story of one woman’s examined life witty quirky unforgettable theatre of self-discovery, good story-telling, and pointed social commentary.” She has performed one-woman shows and at open mics throughout New England and is a two-time Mass Cultural Council Artist Grant finalist.

Each performer is limited to five minutes, including set-up.

Admission to Salon of Shorts is free.

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).

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.

The Sea Captain's Nutcracker

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

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.”
