Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

The play tells the story of three siblings, all in their mid 50’s, each feeling some regret about how their lives turned out and some unease about the future at this point in middle age. The theme touches on the plays of Anton Chekhov in a general sense (but the audience – or the actors – need no background information to fully enjoy the play.) They are named for Russian characters because their parents were college professors who enjoyed doing community theatre. CALL BACKS (if needed):  Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 7:00 pm  (by appointment).  All to be held at the Players Studio, 435 Josiah Bartlett Road, Concord. INFORMATION NIGHT:  Monday, Nov. 20 at 7:00 pm

A sculpture, a machine, a robot, a Rube Goldberg Machine…you name it and you can make it with cardboard.
Businesses, don’t be shy! This would make a great team building exercise.
Teachers, take note! Include it in your plans, and then have a reunion with your students at the Dover Mini Maker Faire on August 26th.

All entries will be displayed and judged by a panel of Makers at the Dover Mini Maker Faire on August 26, 2017. http://dover.makerfaire.com/2017

Calling all nonprofit arts organizations - U-Mass is looking for Case Studies for their upcoming spring and Fall 2017 semesters. Students will work closely (remotely is fine) to create a 3-year plan for the organization, or assess the work being done and provide recommendations of what is done well, where tweaks could be made for improved effectiveness.
Additionally U-Mass is also seeking ideas for candidates to work with us on creating a new Cultural Equity course.
