    Presented in partnership with Historic New England, Firehouse Center for the Arts is thrilled to present Spookley the Square Pumpkin: The Musical. The live musical theater experience will be presented “drive-in” style with audience members enjoying the production from the comfort of their own vehicle and the show being broadcast straight to their radios. Due to the recent update in guidance, all audiences members must remain in their vehicles throughout the performance.

    Based on the wildly popular books and animated special, Spookley The Square Pumpkin: The Musical combines the spectacle and joy of Halloween with delightful songs that people of all ages will love! Airing every year on Disney, the animated television special, adapted from the bestselling Spookley book series, has been a long time Halloween tradition for families all across the country. A Theatre For Young Audiences (TYA) musical with a big heart, Spookley The Square Pumpkin: The Musical is no tricks and nothing but a treat for all ages!

    Spookley The Square Pumpkin: The Musical tells the story of a square pumpkin living in a round pumpkin patch on Holiday Hill Farm. Shunned by the other pumpkins, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch. Encouraged by kindly Jack Scarecrow, Spookley tries his best, but he isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens Holiday Hill Farm. Spookley realizes it is up to him and his square shape to save the day. As a result, all the pumpkins in the patch learn that the things that make you different make you special.

    Join the Custom House on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 6:30pm on the Custom House Museum YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/user/CustomHouseMuseum) for their continuing series: Virtual First Friday! This month’s Virtual First Friday will feature Ship model builder Rob Napier. In his talk, he will be sharing his decades of career experience both as a craftsman, and regarding the conservation work that he does for cultural organizations and private collectors on historical ship models. This event will be an opportunity for viewers to interact directly with Rob, and ask questions in order to learn about the process of maintaining and preserving these types of beautiful maritime artifacts.

    About the Presenter:
    The ship modeling world called to Rob Napier when he was a boy, and he turned to it into a career when he was 27. It has occupied him professionally ever since. He has worked with private and public model collections including the Forbes Collection, the Kennedy Library, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the New York Yacht Club, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Custom House Maritime Museum here in Newburyport.
    Rob also creates original models, which are grounded in historical, photographic, and artistic documentation. His work has won awards at both national and regional competitions, and he has judged numerous ship modeling events himself. He also has experience with small boat building and commercial fishing, and is an avid sailor.
    Rob Napier shares his experiences and views by lecturing and by contributing frequently to publications that feature ship modeling and maritime history, including editing the Nautical Research Journal for five years in the 1990s. He also served as a US Navy journalist during two late-1960s combat cruises to Southeast Asia.

    A New Virtual Yoga Event Benefits Children with Cancer

    Lucy’s Love Bus is holding a new online yoga fundraising event to help kids with cancer and their families. Yoga Ohana will be held online Sunday November 8th from 10am to 1pm.

    Adults and children will enjoy a fun day of virtual yoga where they will learn from expert instructors, relieve stress, and connect with other like-minded people. The money they raise from friends and family will help children diagnosed with cancer or life-threatening illness to receive free yoga classes and other integrative therapies before and after medical treatments. During the COVID-19 crisis, donations will also provide families with emotional support and financial help with housing, groceries, utilities, gas, and medicine.

    “We are excited about Yoga Ohana because it’s a really fun way for families all over New England to help raise funds for Love Bus families who are in desperate need,” said Beecher Grogan, Executive Director of Lucy’s Love Bus. “Ohana means family and this event brings everyone together to help families coping with childhood cancer. This level of support and togetherness is especially crucial in times like these. People of all ages and abilities will be able to experience the benefits of practicing yoga, from the comfort of their own home.”

    Yoga Ohana will feature 20-minute sessions from well-recognized yoga instructors including Sarah Oleson, David Vendetti, Elissa Shoreman, Erica Nunnally, Sienna Creasy, Emily Wiswell and Ann Biese. Classes include: family yoga, supported alignment, meditation, restorative yoga, Reggae yoga, and gentle yoga. For more information visit: https://lucyslovebus.org.

    Major sponsors of the event include: Boston Solar, Bryony and Birch, Cummings Foundation, Gould Insurance, the Iannuccillo family, Nikki Vazeos of Allstate Insurance, North Shore Magazine, Salem Five bank, and STAG Industrial.

    About Lucy’s Love Bus Lucy’s Love Bus is a local Amesbury-based nonprofit that comforts children coping with cancer or life-threatening illness and their families by providing free integrative therapies such as massage, Reiki, meditation, acupuncture, music therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding. These therapies help alleviate the pain, stress, and anxiety caused by illness and are fun and beneficial activities that inspire hope and healing.

    During the pandemic, the organization is helping families with emergency funds for housing and utilities, and gift cards to gas stations, grocery stores, and pharmacies.
