This weekend, Jan 24th and 25th – opening performances of Heartwood’s popular winter staged readings event, featuring two seasoned casts presenting “Eleemosynary” by Lee Blessing and “Molly Sweeney” by Brian Friel.
The 8th annual collaboration between Heartwood Regional Theater Company and Lincoln Academy is well underway, as 7th-12th grade Midcoast students delve into the beloved Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof.Performances will open on Nov 1st, under a winning leadership-trio: Griff Braley (Director), Beth Preston (Vocal Director) and Sean Fleming (Music Director and Accompanist).
Legends are funny things. Over the years they expand, the numbers inflate ("He was seven feet tall!"), events twist, until the end product might have just a smidgen of truth left in it. They say Jim Cullen was such a man, a giant with the strength of five, his fearsome visage under a fiery head of red hair.
Right now a premiere production is blossoming at The Heartwood Regional Theater in Newcastle. The Legend of Jim Cullen, written and directed by the company’s Artistic Director, Griff Braley, offers each of us a chance to witness brilliant creativity in progress.
