“The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” (W.B. Yeats) All around us is the wider world - of nature - that often goes unseen and unheard. Awaken your curiosity and come explore your journey in nature through art and words. Using cloth-bound journals and a variety of media and subjects, focused on both the biological and artistic sides, you will create beauty as seen through your eyes. Various found objects - and please bring your own finds - will be used for contour drawing, cyanotypes, prints, sketches, poems, and more. We will journey outdoors for a portion of the time, as weather permits. Ages 17 and up are welcome. A $10 material fee is payable to the instructor at start of class. Limit 12 students.
On Your Feet! Broadway in Boston W18
with Jane Lee
From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything.
On Your Feet! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and ground breaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.
Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman). On Your Feet! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century and one of the most inspiring stories in music history.
The bus will depart from the Elm Plaza Shopping Center parking lot (closest to Main Street and in front of K-Mart) in Waterville at 7:30 a.m. and will make another pick-up at the West Gardiner Service Plaza at 8:00 a.m. After a “stretch-your-legs” break in Kennebunk we should arrive at Quincy Market at around 11:30 a.m. for some shopping and lunch on your own. We will then attend the 2:00 p.m. matinee at the Boston Opera House with our seats located in the mezzanine section!
We will head back to Maine after the show and after a “pit-stop” in Kennebunk and drop off in Gardiner, we should return to Waterville by approximately 9:00 p.m.
No refunds will be made after March 12, 2018. Fee includes transportation and theater ticket. You are expected to pay for your own meals.
