AUDITIONS FOR HAMILTON-GIBSON’S “A POUND OF FLESH” ARE THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, NOV. 14 & 15

Auditions for Hamilton-Gibson’s rousing revival of the courtroom farce “A Pound of Flesh” are at 7 p.m. this Thursday and Friday, Nov. 14 and 15 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

There are roles for adult men and women, ages 19 and older, including the pivotal two female lawyers, the male judge and the accused. There are a host of witnesses who have cameo roles and appear only during their testimony on the stand.

The auditions are open to all community members. Newcomers are warmly welcomed. No experience is necessary to audition.

HG originally produced this play in 1999 in the Tioga County Courthouse in Wellsboro where it is set. “A Pound of Flesh” is a goofy spoof of William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” written by Thomas Putnam, Hamilton-Gibson’s artistic director. “It’s a wild courtroom farce with puns, slapstick and laughs aplenty that has many contemporary allusions,” Putnam said. “Even though it is based on the Shakespeare play, no knowledge of the Merchant or Shakespeare is necessary to laugh with this court.”

The 2020 performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Jan. 24 and 25 and Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26 in the Warehouse Theatre.

The production is co-sponsored by William and Shirley Hebe and Spencer, Gleason, Hebe, & Rague, P.C.

For more information about the auditions, call (570) 724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.

STORYTELLER REGI CARPENTER PRESENTS “WHERE THERE’S SMOKE THERE’S DINNER: STORIES OF A SEARED CHILDHOOD” THIS FRIDAY, NOV. 15

This Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m., storyteller and award-winning performer Regi Carpenter will present “Where There’s Smoke, There’s Dinner: Stories of a Seared Childhood” in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. Her show is for families, adults and youth, ages 12 and up.

For more than twenty years, Carpenter has been bringing songs and stories to audiences of all ages throughout the world in schools, theaters, libraries, at festivals, conferences and in people’s back yards. She has toured her solo shows and workshops nationally and internationally.

Carpenter is the youngest daughter in a family that pulsates with contradictions: religious and raucous, tender but terrible, unfortunate yet irrepressible. These tales celebrate the glorious and gut-wrenching lives of four generations of Carpenters raised on the Saint Lawrence River in Clayton, New York. Tales of underwater tea parties, drowning lessons and drives to the dump give voice to multi-generations of family life in a small river town with an undercurrent.

This is the third show in the Deane Center’s Storytellers Series. Admission is $15. For more information or for tickets, call (570) 724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.

SECOND CONCERT IN WELLSBORO COMMUNITY CONCERT ASSOCIATION SERIES FEATURES AMERICAN PIANIST THOMAS PANDOLFI THIS SATURDAY, NOV. 16

This Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m., American pianist Thomas Pandolfi will perform “One Singular Night: The Music of George Gershwin and Marvin Hamlisch” in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. This is the second concert in the Wellsboro Community Concert Association’s 2019-2020 season.

Pandolfi is an exceptionally accomplished pianist known for “for his passionate artistry and amazing technique” as well as his skill “in engaging the audience before each piece with helpful comments on what they will hear.”

During the Wellsboro performance, Pandolfi will play American composer and pianist George Gershwin’s solo version of “Rhapsody in Blue”; “Prelude No. 2 in C Sharp Minor (Blue Lullaby)” and a medley that includes “Our Love is Here to Stay,” “The Man I Love,” and “I Got Rhythm.”

He will conclude the concert with “Hamlisch Fantasy,” his own virtuoso interpretation of melodies written by Marvin Hamlisch, an American composer, pianist and conductor, including “I Hope I Get It,” “What I Did for Love,” and “One”, all from “A Chorus Line” and “The Way We Were”.

Following the concert, Pandolfi will be available to sign CDs for audience members. In 2006, he released his first CD, and since then has recorded ten more, including “Language of Infinity” (Chopin), “Gypsy Passages” (Liszt), “Into the Night with Gershwin”, and the “Paderewski Piano Concerto” recorded in the Czech Republic with the Moravian Philharmonic.

Pandolfi has performed across the United States and around the globe. His orchestral appearances often feature masterpiece concertos by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Liszt. An outstanding cross-over artist, he is in demand for his critically acclaimed “Pops” genre performances of Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” and his virtuoso transcriptions of the music of Hamlisch, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Leonard Bernstein, Burt Bacharach and Barry Manilow.

Admission at the door is $20 for adults and $5 for students and children.

ALLARM DIRECTOR TO SPEAK AT WEDNESDAY, NOV. 20 JOINT MEETING OF TROUT UNLIMITED TIADAGHTON CHAPTER #688, TIADAGHTON AUDUBON SOCIETY OF TIOGA AND POTTER COUNTIES, THE PINE CREEK WATERSHED COUNCIL AND THE PINE CREEK HEADWATERS PROTECTION GROUP

This coming Wednesday, Nov. 20, a joint meeting of four organizations will be at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center at 134 Main Street in Wellsboro. The meeting is free and open to the public.

A social hour with drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be at 6 p.m. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and is being hosted by Trout Unlimited Tiadaghton Chapter #688, the Tiadaghton Audubon Society of Tioga and Potter counties, the Pine Creek Watershed Council and the Pine Creek Headwaters Protection Group.

Featured speaker is Julie Vastine, who will talk about citizen science and the power of local engagement. For seventeen years, she has been working in the volunteer monitoring/citizen science field.

As the director of the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa. since 2007, Vastine is responsible for leadership of the ALLARM program and providing technical assistance to watershed communities interested in using science as a tool for change. ALLARM is Dickinson’s nationally renowned community science center that has been working with Pennsylvania and New York volunteers for 33 years, since 1986.

A native of the Chesapeake Bay region, Vastine enjoys helping community organizations build their capacity to monitor, protect, and restore water quality in Pennsylvania and New York.

In 2018, she was elected to the Citizen Science Association and in 2019 was appointed to a four-year term on the National Water Quality Monitoring Council as the volunteer monitoring representative. In that role, she is helping communicate the work of the 1.3 million U.S. volunteers across 1,300 programs and connect their data and efforts to national initiatives.

“No one person or organization can do it all, so collaboration is crucial to achieving a collective goal,” Vastine said. “This appointment to the council signals that my community ethos is valued and that I’m making positive strides to cultivate a strong national volunteer monitoring community. It also affirms that ALLARM is doing vital and important work,” she added.

In addition to her love for working with communities on stream monitoring, Vastine enjoys hiking, biking, cooking, and yoga.

LÚNASA WITH SPECIAL GUEST ASHLEY DAVIS CONCERT IS WEDNESDAY, DEC. 4

In Ireland, families, friends, and neighbors gathered in kitchens in years past to celebrate with music, stories, songs, and, if the room was big enough, dancing. On Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m. “Christmas from Ireland” will bring back those times in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Lúnasa, “the hottest Irish group on the planet,” according to the Irish Echo, will be on stage. Joining them on their “Christmas from Ireland” tour across the United States is vocalist Ashley Davis, an internationally recognized recording artist and songwriter and longtime friend of the band. Together, they will perform spirited vocal and instrumental music, evocative airs, and songs both unknown and familiar.

With six CDs under her belt, including two that are seasonal, Davis brings a wide repertoire of Celtic and original songs, tempered by the influence of her birthplace, the Kansas plains and the country music traditions borne of America’s Appalachian Mountains. Her 2019 CD, “Burning Down” embraces the electronic compositions of her rebellious youth.

Lúnasa is composed of flautist, whistle player, and lead man/comic Kevin Crawford, piper and whistle player Cillian Vallely, fiddler and whistle player Colin Farrell, Trevor Hutchinson on upright bass, and guitarist Patrick Doocey.

The all-instrumental quintet is noted for double bass and guitar-driven rhythms, original compositions mixed with material from Celtic regions such as Brittany, Galicia, and Asturias, and slower melodies involving three-part harmonies played on the traditional pipes, fiddle, and flute. Their most recent CD, “Cas” features guest vocalists for the first time.

Since forming in 1996, Lúnasa has performed over 2000 concerts, and achieved a worldwide reputation as a different breed of Irish traditional music group – one with the repertoire of lifelong traditional musicians, the intricate harmonies of a jazz combo, and the energy of a rock band.

Also performing with Lúnasa and Davis will be American stepdancer and choreographer Cara Butler doing Irish stepdancing. She dances with the Chieftains whenever this traditional Irish band comes to North America and is also a principal dancer with The Step Crew, a percussive dance company that traces Irish stepdancing from its roots in Ireland to North America.

Admission is $30 and $25 for seniors. 65 and older. For tickets, call (570) 724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.
