GABE STILLMAN BAND CONCERT THIS FRIDAY, JULY 10 IS CHANGED FROM INDOORS TO OUTDOORS AT NEW TIME

The Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro has made the decision to move six concerts originally scheduled indoors in the Coolidge Theatre to the outdoor stage and make them free with requests for donations, according to an announcement by Executive Director Kevin Connelly.

The Deane Center has been running a free series of seven concerts on the outdoor stage featuring local musicians. The first three were held on June 6 and 26 and July 3 with the fourth planned on July 17.

This Friday, July 10, the Gabe Stillman Band, based in Williamsport, was to open the series of six indoor BYOB concerts featuring regional musicians at 7 p.m. in the Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street.

Instead, that Stillman concert will begin this Friday, July 10 at 6:30 p.m. on the outdoor stage rather than in the Coolidge Theatre.

“We have successfully operated the Deane Center by listening to and trying to meet the needs and desires of the community,” Connelly said. “Based on people’s response to the three, free concerts we’ve held outdoors we know there is a pent up demand for live music. We also realize that under the present circumstances, even with coronavirus guidelines in place, many people are not prepared to enjoy a show within a confined space, like the Coolidge Theatre. With that in mind I feel it is in the best interest of our community, and the best way for the Deane Center to exercise its mission, to move the other concert series completely outside. This means there will be live entertainment every Friday with a mix of local and regional talent and all of the shows will be free. We are hoping that those who attend will support us by making a donation,” said Connelly.

“We are excited to be coming back to the Deane Center this Friday, July 10 and look forward to playing hard stomping blues, both fan favorites and new music, on the outdoor stage,” said Gabe Stillman, ace guitarist and singer who leads the band and is the 2019 Gibson Guitar Award-winner. “Hopefully the weather will be nice,” he added.
The band with Colin Beatty on bass guitar and Joel Vincent on drums will be performing fan favorites along with some brand new original songs from Stillman’s album “Flying High”, which is set to be released this summer. Stillman recorded “Flying High” with the legendary Washington, D.C. blues band, The Nighthawks. The title track, “Flying High” and “Shame Shame”, two of the new originals from the upcoming CD, can now be downloaded or streamed on all digital platforms.

While the trio’s electrifying sound is unmistakably rooted in American blues, the group draws deeply from influences of soul, R&B, funk, and New Orleans jazz and blues music.

For this concert, bring lawn chairs and sit on the grass in front of the outdoor stage or sit on lawn chairs on Central Avenue, which will be closed to traffic between Main Street and the Warehouse Theatre to provide space for social distancing. All donations are appreciated.

For more information about this concert and others, call the Deane Center at (570) 724-6220, email office@deanecenter.com or visit deanecenter.com.

REGISTER BY FRIDAY, JULY 10 TO AUDITION FOR RADIO PLAYS THIS SATURDAY, JULY 11 AND THIS SUNDAY, JULY 12

This Friday, July 10 is the deadline for people of all ages to schedule a time to audition in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro for radio plays being performed in August during the Fourth Annual Tune In To Radio HG Festival. Short sections of scripts known as sides will be provided to registered participants in advance.

Auditions are being scheduled in one-hour increments between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. this Saturday, July 11 and between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. this Sunday, July 12 so that not more than eight individuals will be in the theater at any given time. This will help ensure participants’ safety by providing space to follow CDC social distancing guidelines and time to disinfect all surfaces between each audition.

“Voice acting is a great way to try acting without the worry of memorizing lines or learning blocking for a stage performance,” said Gabe Hakvaag, festival producer.

The festival will be online this year so the audience can hear the performances in their homes. Each day of the festival a new slate of classic and contemporary audio dramas and comedies performed by voice actors with live music and sound effects will be posted to Hamilton-Gibson’s website for the public.

To schedule an audition time and receive a script section, call Hamilton-Gibson Productions at (570) 724-2079 or email WBFRHG@gmail.com.

WELL ARMED WOMAN SHOOTING CHAPTER, TIOGA COUNTY, PA TO MEET ON THURSDAY, JULY 30, NOT JULY 16

The date of the regular meeting of the Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapter, Tioga County, Pa. has been changed from Thursday, July 16 to Thursday, July 30 due to a scheduling conflict. Information will be released to the public just prior to the meeting. Those with questions are invited to contact Co-Leader Marilyn Jones at (570) 549-2794 or jones_mk@yahoo.com.

TIOGA COUNTY LYME DISEASE SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS, INCLUDING THURSDAY, JULY 16, ARE CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Tioga County Lyme Disease Support Group will not meet on the third Thursday of each month until further notice, according to Co-leaders Luke Dunham and Thomas Putnam. “We have canceled all upcoming support group meetings, including the one on Thursday, July 16, ” said Dunham.

The group has been holding meetings that are free and open to the public since January of 2018. They did not meet this March, April or May due to the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines initiated by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to slow the spread of COVID-19. The June meeting was held after Tioga County went into the green phase of Gov. Wolf’s reopening plan.

“Both Thomas and I are also the Tioga County regional co-leaders for the Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network,” Dunham said. “After discussing the ongoing coronavirus crisis with the network, we decided against holding indoor meetings for the time being,” Dunham said. “We will publicly announce when the support group will begin meeting again.”

The Pennsylvania Resource Network is a non-profit 501©(3) organization that has been the resource for Lyme disease prevention, education, patient support and advocacy. The network was founded in 2012 by individuals with personal experiences with Lyme, Lyme co-infections and other tick-borne diseases, which can be contracted from a tick bite at the same time as Lyme.

The network helps Pennsylvanians navigate Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses and also supports regional and independent all-volunteer Lyme support groups across the state that hold local meetings to provide support, education, and resources to their local communities.

Both Dunham and Putnam have been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease and live in the Wellsboro area. Those with questions about Lyme are welcome to contact either one by email at tiogacountylyme@palyme.org or by calling Putnam at (570) 439-2000.
