ACT NOW MovieExperience this Summer

ACT NOW is an exciting, improvisational movie-making program for girls ages 10-14 years old  Our original technique, the MOVIExperience,  is a fun week of improvisation, location scouting, brainstorming, storytelling, and hands-on movie-making. The girls do all of the on-screen and most of the behind the scenes jobs as well. ACT NOW movies themes take up what matters most to the girls; they are entertaining, educational and professionally produced. Playshops take place from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday.  At the end of each Playshop, a public screening of the original movie reveals hidden capacities and talents in every participant, allowing formerly passive viewers to become active makers.   ACT NOW playshops build confidence and character in girls, and are empowering, engaging, and fun!

The Magic Lantern: Songs, Stories and Projections From an Imaginary New England Village

TIM ERIKSEN TRIO PRESENTS
The Magic Lantern: Songs, Stories and Projections From an Imaginary New England Village

More info & Tickets: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/1128893

A mysterious trunk found in a Yankee attic, full of leatherbound tunebooks, letters, musical instruments, 8 track tapes, a handwritten sheaf of ballads, a machete and even an old “magic lantern:” an ancient projector, with a box of painted glass slides. Was this the trunk Silas had been looking for? The one his antiquarian great uncle promised would be full of missing verses, answers to family mysteries, the truth behind local legends, even the details of Silas’s own murky past? The Tim Eriksen Trio and painter Susan Brearey take you to Pumpkintown, revealing the mysteries of the trunk and the curious multicultural history of the village itself, through songs, stories and magic lantern projections.
