Now here’s something to get “hyped” about! HYPE (Heartwood Youth Performance & Education) is taking on a brand new look, this season. Eight exciting workshops, presented by a group of dynamic and highly qualified artists, are scheduled in the Poe Theater at Lincoln Academy, from February vacation thru April, for students 8 years and older.
At last, the quiet, post-holiday evenings of January have arrived, and Heartwood Theater Company is on stage in the Poe Theater to fill a few of these evenings, with an engaging, award winning three-character play by Michael Hollinger, “Ghost-Writer.” Actors featured in this absorbing tale include two who are well known to the Midcoast Community, Dixie Weisman of Newcastle and Millie Santiago of West Boothbay, and a newcomer to Heartwood, Dwight Burtis of Thomaston.
A double dose of family entertainment awaits - at family prices - as Heartwood presents two unique performances of storytelling to the Midcoast. Friday, Dec. 7th, the public can experience “American Tales,” an original production currently touring Midcoast schools, as part of the Heartwood Goes to School outreach program. Monday, Dec.
For two nights only, Heartwood Regional Theater Company features John Farrell, presenting T.S. Eliot’s crowning poetic achievement, Four Quartets. Why poetry? One listener put it this way. “Because something happens in the twilight of the room, in the intimate space among performer and listeners, in the openings between the words and ourselves as we lean forward and toward the poetry, as we hear the language that Farrell listens into being.” - Kristin Langellier, Professor, University of Maine.
