At the end of this two hour workshop, most participants will have one completed brush painting.

    This class is free of charge and supplies will be provided. Limit 20 people. Registration is required and will begin Monday, November 5th. Please call 978-465-4428 x242, or register in person at the reference desk on the 2nd floor.

    Pop up Random Acts 14.5

    A spot opened up at The Actors Studio of Newburyport and what better, agile, and awesome community theater event to jump in but Random Acts! We are calling it Random Acts 14.5 falling between our 14th (last winter), and our 15th production (coming in 2019). Random Acts is a play in a day spun together by the Great and Mysterious Randomizer, otherwise known as Hailey Klein. Heres how it works: Writers names go in a hat. Playwright pairs are selected at random. They spend Friday night writing a new play. Saturday morning directors names are put in the hat. Directors are assigned to the plays by a random draw. Finally actors names are placed in the randomizer and they are assigned to each play by random pick. Then the teams go to work rehearsing and preparing for the production at 8:00 PM that night. 

    No time for doubt, no time for resistance its a dash to the finish line and everyone wins - the playwrights, directors, actors, and most importantly, the audience. The energy generated by the Random Acts process is over the top and everyone feels it.

    "We are thrilled to have this long standing Newburyport event come to The Actors Studio of Newburyport." Marc Clopton, Executive Director.

    Newburyport Public Library, 94 State St, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA
    Description

    Everyone knows that there's something about lighthouses that gives them broad appeal, but their vital role in our history and culture is little appreciated. Our early nation was built on a maritime economy, and lighthouses were part of the system that made that possible. Due to automation, traditional lighthouse keeping is a way of life that has faded into the past.

    Jeremy D'Entremont tells the history of New England's historic and picturesque lighthouses, primarily focusing on the colorful and dramatic stories of lighthouse keepers and their families. There will also be some discussion of the Newburyport Harbor Light on Plum Island for all of the local history aficionados!

    Jeremy D'Entremont has written more than 20 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouse history and other maritime topics. He is the president and historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation and the founder and chairman of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses. Jeremy has lectured and narrated cruises from Maine to California, and his photographs have appeared in many books and magazines. He has appeared on the Travel Channel, History Channel, Public Television, and National Public Radio speaking about lighthouse history. He is also editor of the website New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide and he offers tours to lighthouses via minivan, based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

    Location
    Actors Studio of Newburyport, 12 Federal St, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA
    Description

    omne trium perfectum

    The principle of the rule of three suggests that things that come in threes are inherently more humorous, satisfying and effective than any other number of things. On the strength of this timeless wisdom, The Actors Studio of Newburyport presents this trilogy of new plays for your complete enjoyment.

    Two unique plays by Josh Faigen

    "After the Party" proves the adage that a play is really music, just with words instead of notes. Join a chorus to tell the story of a dinner party! Written in a unique format, audience members will be able to join in the performance of this exciting piece. Feel the rhythmic energy and speak dialogue as song (material provided). Sheer fun!

    "Das Rheingold" is an opera written by Richard Wagner, full of magnificent music, exquisite arias, mythical grandeur, and the dumbest plot every imagined by a composer. Now, Josh Faigen has removed all the superfluous brilliant stuff and adapted the plot for American audiences. And, because there are fourteen roles, we will need help from the audience! Gods, goddesses, giants, magical river maidens, niebelungen (dwarves), magic helmets, gardens of eternal youth, and gold lots and lots of gold. Every single plot element in the opera is recreated in language we can all understand. Plus Schmeckenbecker. 

    One piercing play by Hailey DD Klein

    Neediness can be seductive. Being needed can be lethal. In Hailey Kleins, "KillJoy," one character sends out her siren song, or is it a call to her muse? The other character is a man caught in all too familiar quicksand. The play dips its toes into the murky waters of an addiction cycle being played out. This story gently lays down its message, as if the audience just discovered itself musing over past as prelude. In a contemplative moment an insight might occur that offers change. How do we cut the chords of habit when they are rooted in the soft cocoon of intimacy? Who will survive? At what price?

    Newburyport Public Library, 94 State St, Newburyport, MA 01950, USA
    Description

    kidnappings, earthquakes and a plague of caterpillars. The century that followed—marked by religious conflict, Indian uprisings and public scandal— proved no less challenging to the early Puritan community. In 1640, Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop noted, “As people increased, so sin abounded.” Through the turmoil, Newbury's citizens harnessed the region's abundant natural resources and developed a thriving community. 

    Author and local historian Bethany Groff Dorau introduces the compelling personalities that shaped the history of Old Newbury from its founding in 1635 until 1764, when Newburyport received its independence from the mother town. From the scandalous exploits of Dr. Henry Greenland to the courageous and sacrificing acts of founding families like the Emerys, Dummers and Pikes, A Brief History of Old Newbury provides a captivating glimpse into the verve of this early New England town. 

    As this talk is expected to possibly exceed our room capacity, we will be handing out free tickets starting at 6:30 pm. Get here early for a fun and informative evening!
