The Member of the Wedding


The Phoenix Theatre’s Mainstage Proudly Presents
 
THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING
 
By:  Carson McCullers
Directed By:  Jeff Beard
Sponsored By:  Jim Johnson
April 25th-May 11th
 
Here is the story of the inimitable twelve-year-old Frankie, who is utterly, hopelessly bored with life until she hears about her older brother’s wedding. Bolstered by lively conversations with her house servant, Berenice, and her six-year-old male cousin — not to mention her own unbridled imagination — Frankie takes on an overly active role in the wedding, hoping even to go, uninvited, on the honeymoon, so deep is her desire to be the member of something larger, more accepting than herself. A marvelous study of the agony of adolescence” (Detroit Free Press).

The Farewell Drifters


The Phoenix Theatre
Proudly Presents an After Hours Performance by
The Farewell Drifters
Sponsored by Bluegrass Cellular
 
With their acoustic instrumentation and the anthemic thrust of their songwriting, the Farewell Drifters find themselves in the midst of what’s bound to go down in the annals of popular music history as an era-defining, youthful folk-rock boom. But the Drifters aren’t content simply to stomp, strum and sing with gusto. They bring a unique Brian Wilson-like sensibility to the movement, with intricately arranged harmonies and atmospheric, string-swathed studio shading that is newly showcased on Tomorrow Forever, the quartet’s first album for their new label Compass Records. Collaborating with roots pop producer Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones, the Apache Relay) helped solidify the band’s voice, elevating their crystalline harmonies and acoustic foundation with gutsy electric guitar and orchestral-style drums to create a sound that’s earthy, richly layered, and powerful.

The money she takes is at the heart of a conspiracy involving murder, blackmail and a powerful figure who’ll do anything to keep the past buried.  Andrew Gross is the author of The New York Times and international bestsellers The Blue Zone and The Dark Tide, and coauthor of five No. 1 best-selling novels with James Patterson, including Judge & Jury, Lifeguard, and The Jester.

Tony Wycihowski will exhibit his photography in the Porter Café at the Main Library.  His show is titled “Black, White and More,” and will feature mostly black and white photos and some of his award-winning prints.  “The reason I chose photography as an expression of my creativity is because it is easily accessible, ever changing, fun way to capture life moments and share them with family and friends,” says Wycihowski. “The late and great, American photographer, Ansel Adams is a true inspiration to my work and approach for capturing images that express both depth and a tight composition.”  Cheree and Ric Frederico will exhibit their photography at the Bob Kirby Branch.  Cheree Federico is the owner of Cheree Federico Photography (www.chereefederico.com).  A member of the Professional Photographers of America, Cheree specializes in fine art prints, pets, and portraits.  She also teaches private photography lessons.  “I believe that photography – like any creative art form – reflects the personality and sensibilities of both the photographer and the subject, whether the subject is an orchid, a Schnauzer, or a beautiful harvest moon,” says Frederico. Her exhibit at the library will feature botanicals and still macros.  Ric Federico is a relative newcomer to photography. Initially intrigued with nature and landscapes, his evolving style has quickly migrated to what he considers subjects of interesting and substantive character, which often consist of anything with peeling paint, ample rust, or vibrant color.  “My favorite past time is going on two-person photo walks with my wife in search of that next compelling image, which above all else must have a story to tell,”  says Ric.  His photo exhibit will be abstract and urban photography.  The Smiths Grove Sewing Circle will exhibit a quilt at the Smiths Grove Branch. The quilt is a nine patch quilt that started in a basic quilting workshop at the Smiths Grove Branch Library taught by K. O Blankenship.  “The group decided to form a sewing circle that would continue to work together on the quilt as a community project throughout the winter,” says coordinator Jessica Mather. “The group continues to sew together, and we are currently working on individual sampler quilts. About 12 people worked on the quilt and most of them had little to no experience quilting. For some, it was their first experience with sewing by machine. The youngest quilter was 10.”  All exhibits begin May 1 and will end May 31. For more information about exhibit at the library or these shows, please email Jayne Pelaski at jaynep@warrenpl.org.
