Cheryl Wheeler

7:30 PM - Peterborough

She’s Back. Don’t miss……. Two Cheryls It has always seemed as if there were two Cheryl Wheelers, with fans of the New England songwriter relishing watching the two tussle for control of the mic. There is poet-Cheryl, writer of some of the prettiest, most alluring and intelligent ballads on the modern folk scene. And there is her evil twin, comic-Cheryl, a militant trend defier and savagely funny social critic. The result is a delightful contrast between poet and comic. Poet-Cheryl writes achingly honest songs of love and loss. Contrasting the prosaic landscapes of her native small-town America with the hopelessly rootless life of the traveling performer, she touches the common chords with any who feel the tug between our busy, noisome times and the timeless longing for simplicity and silence. Her deceptively plain-spun songs have been hits for such mainstream stars as Suzy Bogguss (Aces) and Dan Seals (Addicted), and have been recorded by everyone from Bette Midler, Maura O’Connell, Peter Paul and Mary, Juice Newton, and Garth Brooks. Comic-Cheryl comes on like Groucho-in-a-housecoat; a fiercely everyday woman with a barbed-wire tongue. Shredding the mores of our gossipy, greedy, trend-obsessed culture, Wheeler always aims enough darts at herself to never seem sanctimonious.

MoCo Arts Teens Musical Theatre Presents 'Singin' In the Rain Jr.'

7:00 PM - Keene

‘Singin’ In the Rain’ presented by MoCo Arts Teens Musical Theatre, April 29, 2017 at 7:00pm & April 30, 2017 at 2:00pm at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. $20 General, $14 Seniors/Youth, visit or call the Redfern Arts Center Box Office for tickets, 358-2168. www.moco.org. As the days of silent movies end with the premier of The Jazz Singer, Hollywood is frantic and studios are forced to change their movie-making rules to accommodate sound. In doing so, they leave silent pictures, and some of their stars, behind. When Monumental Studios turns silent The Dueling Cavalier into The Dancing Cavalier, a musical picture, in order to stay relevant, they are faced with a problem: their star, Lina Lamont can’t sing, and can’t even really talk. Lina’s voice sounds something like nails on a chalkboard. Enter Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress whose dulcet tones are able to cover Lina Lamont’s, calling into question what it means to act, how credit is distributed, and what it means to get a fair shake in the movie business. Singin’ In the Rain is performed by MoCo Arts students 6th – 12th grade, and includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers, and love songs ever written, including “Good Mornin’,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” and – of course – the show-stopping dance number, “Singin’ in the Rain.” http://www.moco.org/performances/singin-in-the-rain-jr/

Family Clay Workshops

1:30 PM - Manchester

NOTE: This is not a wheel-throwing class. If you are interested in wheel throwing with your child, please reserve a spot in our “Family Pottery Workshop” (every first Saturday from 12-1) or the “Try it! Clay Workshop from 3-6” (every Saturday). Wheel throwing tends to be more appropriate for kids 9+ Come in Saturday afternoon 1:30-2:30 with your kid (or a couple of kids) to share the magic of clay together. You will each get to hand-sculpt a clay project from scratch. Kids of all ages are welcome, but if your child is 5 or under, you may spend a bulk of the workshop helping your child sculpt their piece. There is no defined lesson plan, as clay leaves a lot of room for creativity! No worries if you don’t know what to make. If you are stumped, the teacher will have projects to suggest. If you know what you want to make, the teacher will help guide you. Leave your creations with us to fire and we will let you know when they are ready to pick up. Please allow 3-4 weeks for completion. The first parent and child pair is $30. For each additional parent or child it is $10. The class is open to younger children that would not normally take a class alone (ages 4-6), but parents accompanying these ages should be prepared to work mostly with their child to make a project together. Parents of older children (7-14) can make their own pieces. Price includes all materials, instruction, and finishing of work. Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome if there is room in the workshop. Sample projects: Mini-Coil Bud vases Crazy Creature Box Slab built Mugs Pinch Pot Bowls Coil Bowls A tunnel for your pet lizard to sleep in Fancy Fish Sculptures Textured Trivets Ornaments or wind chimes

MoCo Arts Teens Musical Theatre Presents 'Singin' In the Rain Jr.'

2:00 PM - Keene

‘Singin’ In the Rain’ presented by MoCo Arts Teens Musical Theatre, April 29, 2017 at 7:00pm & April 30, 2017 at 2:00pm at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. $20 General, $14 Seniors/Youth, visit or call the Redfern Arts Center Box Office for tickets, 358-2168. www.moco.org. As the days of silent movies end with the premier of The Jazz Singer, Hollywood is frantic and studios are forced to change their movie-making rules to accommodate sound. In doing so, they leave silent pictures, and some of their stars, behind. When Monumental Studios turns silent The Dueling Cavalier into The Dancing Cavalier, a musical picture, in order to stay relevant, they are faced with a problem: their star, Lina Lamont can’t sing, and can’t even really talk. Lina’s voice sounds something like nails on a chalkboard. Enter Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress whose dulcet tones are able to cover Lina Lamont’s, calling into question what it means to act, how credit is distributed, and what it means to get a fair shake in the movie business. Singin’ In the Rain is performed by MoCo Arts students 6th – 12th grade, and includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers, and love songs ever written, including “Good Mornin’,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” and – of course – the show-stopping dance number, “Singin’ in the Rain.” http://www.moco.org/performances/singin-in-the-rain-jr/
