Circus!

OK, I don't have all the details yet, but I will be performing as part of the Open Air Circus on July 31 at 7:00, August 1 at 2:00 and 7:00, and August 2 at 2:00. I believe all performances will be at the Nunziato Field/Growing Center (under a real tent, even, although I doubt it's an actual circus big top.) No clue about ticket prices or rain policies or anything like that yet, but count this as a save-the-date.

ETA: Also, I believe I will be marching on stilts in the ArtBeat parade with the Open Air Circus on Saturday at 2pm. If you're coming to ArtBeat, keep your eyes open for me!

Pride

Had such a great time at Pride today. We ended up with half a dozen T@F folks, and the weather, while cool, did not get as wet as we had feared. I haven't marched in Pride in a few years now, although I did go watch two years ago, mostly because there was no group I was really involved with enough to want to walk with them. So it was really wonderful to be a part of the parade again with a group that is so close to my heart -- thanks to those who joined us, and those who tried and were thwarted :)

It's so hard to describe the amazing energy at Pride; there's just such an atmosphere of celebration and love and support and, well, pride. Somehow there seem to be no strangers at Pride. I love to march along and smile at individual people in the crowd and have them smile back, or yell out compliments on a particularly impressive outfit and get an appreciative smile. I heard several people commenting on our Theatre@First signs, excited to see a theater group, which made me feel extra warm and fuzzy. Saw some friends in the crowds as well, which is always fun.

[livejournal.com profile] lifecollage and I wandered the booths at the festival at the end of the parade for a while, and got to catch up with some old friends on both our sides. But the hours of standing around and the long walk and all of the excitement caught up to me pretty quickly, so after one quick round we headed for the T and home and a well-deserved shabbos nap. I'm not sure which is going to hurt more tomorrow, my legs from walking or my cheeks from smiling so much.

Just a reminder that my concert with the Somerville Community Chorus is now less than a week away!

This season's program is "A Groovy Review of Pop Hits from the 1970s," and it includes songs from the Beatles, Billy Joel, Queen, and ABBA, just to name a few. In addition to the songs sung by the whole chorus, various chorus members will be performing special solos, duets, and small group numbers of their own favorite '70s songs.

Concert Details:
When: Saturday, May 19, 7:00 pm
Where: Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church, 155 Powderhouse Blvd., Somerville, MA
(Parking is limited in the area, and it is only about a 10-15 min. walk from Davis Square, so I recommend taking public transportation if you can.)
Tickets available at the door, $10 per person; there are discounts for students and seniors, and children under 12 are free.

Hope to see you there!

I've got a couple of little solo-ish things -- a very short solo to start off Imagine, I'll be one of a few people singing a solo in All You Need Is Love, and I'm in a trio that will be performing The Rose.

I do have two comp tickets, so if you want to come but the money is a problem, let me know. And they're also looking for volunteers to help sell raffle tickets at the concert, if anyone wants to help out.

Hope to see you there!

Chocolate!

[livejournal.com profile] oakenguy, a fabulous member of the Post-Meridian Radio Players, is also a chocolatier, and is making chocolate for an event this weekend. I'm hoping to make it Saturday night -- hope to see some of you there.

Willoughby and Baltic, Somerville's greatest Czech-style Marionette Theater and Art Gallery, is about to become Somerville's greatest Czech-style Marionette Theater, Art Gallery, and Chocolateria!

The kickoff of this bizarre-yet-savory blend of puppetry and gourmet chocolate is a weekend-long Valentines-themed Chocolate Tasting on February 10th and 11th. From wafer-scroll cookies with love poetry inside to chocolate hearts that are dark, bitter and broken, we have a holiday dessert to suit every mood.

To make the event even more interesting, appearing in the "Teeny Lounge" will be the musical stylings of Swanky Franky Velvet, noted puppet and entertainer. Mr. Velvet brings his show direct from Vegas, and will serenade you with songs that will thrill and amaze.

The chocolate bar will be open from 5-10, and Franky's performance begins at 8. Each ticket entitles you to sample one dessert, and proceeds from this event help support the Marionette Theater. Tickets cost $2.00 each, and you can purchase as many or as few tickets as you wish. Tickets purchased that aren't used can be used toward chocolates or puppet tickets at any time in the future.

Willoughby and Baltic is located at 195g Elm Street, in scenic Davis Square.
