   11:00 AM  -  1:00 PM Shakespearean Acting Workshop With the Bay Colony Shakespeare Co.  
    Contact: Kelsey Socha   781-834-5535   ksocha@ocln.org
   
Marshfield: Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 24th at 11 am for a premiere event: a Shakespearean acting workshop with Marshfield's own Bay Colony Shakespeare Company (http://www.baycolonyshakespeare.org).
 
Join us for a remarkable first time Ventress event: an acting workshop with Marshfield-founded Bay Colony Shakespeare Company. Tom Grenon, the BCSC's Education Director, will lead this two hour workshop for high schoolers and adults focusing on understanding Shakespeare's texts, relishing the words, and telling stories. The workshop will engage participants in performance, improvisation, group-building, and story-telling, and promises to be accessible for both passionate fans of the Bard and those coming to it for the first time. No acting experience is required to participate: all that participants need to bring with them is a willingness to play, try something new, and engage with the text. 
 
The event is free and open to high school students and adults; registration is required for this event.
 
 For more information, contact librarian Kelsey Socha at 781-834-5535 or ksocha@ocln.org and visit our website at ventresslibrary.org. Don't miss this fun-filled collaboration!

    Contact: Kelsey Socha   781-834-5535   ksocha@ocln.org
   
Marshfield: join us at the Ventress Memorial Library for a magical and inspiring evening of music! On Thursday, March 15th at 7 pm, we will be presenting a very special concert: Let the Music Set You Free: An Evening of Music with Katie Dobbins and Friends. Dobbins, a Boston-based musician with folk and country influences who released her first album just last year, will lead this deeply personal night of music and empowerment in our New Program Room. Other artists TBA.
 
Have you been looking for something to inspire you to be your bravest self, or just longing for a night of music here in town? Join us for this one night performance! This program is free and no registration is required--just show up! Doors will open at 6:45 pm. 
 
Katie Dobbins draws from a music palette of contemporary folk and new country. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift spirits and challenge the soul. Dobbins' powerful yet comforting vocal tones draw you in and paint her lyrical truths into images that stay with you. Dobbins' Let The Music Set You Free movement, which inspires personal freedom and self-empowerment, has brought her to stages all around New England, including Boston-Area favorites The Lizard Lounge and The Burren. Her debut album She Is Free (released 2017) was described by The Deli Magazine as "a deeply personal record that is full of reflective poetry and messages of love . . . bringing to mind Jewel's Pieces of You." Throughout her record and live performances, Dobbins creates a warm inviting atmosphere that leaves her listeners longing for more. www.katiedobbinsmusic.com

    Contact: Chris Woods   781-834-5535   cwoods@ocln.org
   

Wednesday Night Lecture/Virtual Tour – Wednesday, March 21, Special Time: starts at 6:30 p.m., “Edward Hopper: Capturing the Outer Cape Light”, presented by tour director Beth Chapman.

From 1930 to 1964, Edward and his wife Josephine spent summers in South Truro, first in a tiny rental where Edward painted on the screened-in porch for four summers, and then in the 1,000 square foot studio they built in 1934. He captured the famous Cape Cod light using both watercolor and oil to paint landscapes, churches, homes, sheds, chicken coops and barns. This lecture discusses more than 50 of his Truro and Wellfleet paintings. Ms. Chapman has deep roots in South Truro (Hopper painted her family’s farm five times), and describes herself as a lover of family history, not an art history expert. Ms Chapman has been running tours of some of Edward Hopper’s houses and landscapes in Wellfleet and Truro throughout the summer and fall. Free and open to the public; no tickets required.

Wednesday Night Lecture/Series Finale Performance – Wednesday, May 30, 7-8:30 p.m. “Meet Julia Child!” presented by Delvena Theatre Company.

Meet Julia Child – the beloved French Chef! A live performance featuring Lynne Moulton as Julia Child doing what she did best. Learn more about her life – from her privileged childhood in California when she had no interest in food except for eating what the family’s private chef prepared, to becoming one of the culinary legends of all time. The audience will have the opportunity to view Julia on the set of The French Chef television show, an amusing and fun experience! After the performance, the cast will open up for discussion regarding Julia Child. Free and open to the public; no tickets required. Light refreshments served! This program is supported by a grant from the Marshfield Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.  Visit www.delvenatheatrecompany.org
