    The Beaver Believers (2018; 64 minutes)
    The Beaver Believers is an award-winning feature documentary sharing the urgent yet whimsical
    story of an unlikely cadre of activists - a biologist, a hydrologist, a botanist, an ecologist, a
    psychologist, and a hairdresser - who share a common vision. They’re all working to restore the
    North American Beaver, that most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed little engineer, to the
    watersheds of the American West. The Beaver Believers encourage us to embrace a new paradigm
    for managing our western lands, one that seeks to partner with the natural world rather than
    overpower it. As a keystone species, beaver enrich their ecosystems, creating the biodiversity,
    complexity, and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers
    can show us the way and do much of the work for us, if only we can find the humility to trust the
    restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it. Shot in 8 western
    states, Mexico, and Canada, through desert drought, raging wild fires, forceful floods, and wetland
    tranquility, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to take a
    bite out of the challenges we face, one stick at a time.

About half ofthe current generation of children will developa mood or behavioral disorder or a substanceaddiction by age eighteen. Contemporary kidsneed to learn independence and responsibility, yet our old ideas of punishments and rewards are preventing this from happening.Katherine will show you how innovators arerebuilding lost-self control, resolving familyconflict and changing the trajectory of young lives.

    Clipper Career Fair Fuels Student Futures
    Future Directions Career Fair, April 2, 2020

    Newburyport, MA. (February 13, 2020) - Newburyport High School is joining with the local business
    community to host the Future Directions Career Fair on Thursday, April 2, 2020 from 8-10:15am.

    It will offer the NHS sophomore class the opportunity to learn about careers. Panelists will engage with students in a dialogue to help them match their passions with career interests.
    Andy Wulf, Newburyport High School Principal, spoke very highly of the career fair and the impact it
    had on the community and the students, “At last year’s Future Directions Fair, it was great to see our
    students make connections with so many community members.”

    Shelley DeSimone, VP of Human Resources at Anna Jacques Hospital, and the committee chairman
    concurs. “AJH employees have participated in this event since its inception … we’re confident that the
    career stories we’ve told have inspired future doctors, nurses and others to pursue careers in health
    science careers,” she said.

    This is the fourth year the career exploration event is being held. We hope to increase the number of
    local employers and business owners who will come to inspire the students. The committee is looking to attract businesses and professionals as presenters in these vocations:

    • Business Management • Health Science
    • STEM • Education & Training
    • Finance & Banking • Law, Law Enforcement and Public Safety
    • Human Services • Arts, Audio, Visual Technology and Communication

    By encouraging employers to connect with students, the committee envisions mutually beneficial
    internships could be developed as a by-product of this interaction. “The fair is a great example of the
    community coming together to help students better connect school to their future interests,” Mr. Wulf
    complimented.

    Actors Studio - Collaboration 6

      The Weekend Writers Workshop (WWW) is bringing "Collaboration 6 to The Actors Studio for three performances. Previous work by these playwrights has been performed at hundreds of play festivals around the country and Collaboration 6 is this talented groups most ambitious show to date. According to Marc Clopton, Executive Director of the Actors Studio, You don't have to go into Boston to get great theater. The Collaboration 6 plays guarantee three evenings of unique, not-to-be-missed entertainment - funny, clever, stunning, compelling and provocative."

    Audiences will be treated to twelve plays, eight a night, with each nights line-up different than the previous, says Jack Rushton, co-founder of WWW. Were grouping the twelve plays into three sets of four. If you take in two shows you'll see all twelve plays. If you attend all three shows, you'll see the unique line-ups, because no two nights will be the same.

    WWW meets every third Sunday at The Actors Studio, where local writers and actors work in harmony to craft and fine-tune plays. Every year we choose some of our best to perform as a fundraiser for The Actors Studio, says Rushton, a place that's not only a valuable cultural resource in our community but also a theatrical home-base for many of us.

    Actors Studio - The Gin Game - A Staged Reading

    This Pulitzer Prize Award winning play uses the card game as a metaphor for life. As an aging couple in a seedy nursing home play the game, the intimacies of their pasts spill forth like the cards from the deck as they reach out to make some sense of their damaged lives. By Donald L. Coburn. Featuring M.Lynda Robinson and Richard McElvain.

    Richard McElvain, co-founder of BOSTON READS, has been working in the Boston area as an actor, director, writer, translator and teacher for more years than he cares to count. He is a recipient of both the Elliot Norton Award and the IRNE for his acting. His directorial and acting credits are too numerous to mention.

    M. Lynda Robinson, co-founder of BOSTON READS, has been working on Boston theatre stages for the last 35 years. There is virtually no stage in Boston she has not tread upon multiple times.
