Newtown Community and the Pandemic.
POSTPONED, New time TBA.
Challenges and opportunities during the hardships of Covid-19.
Panelists of local Newtown leaders and Mr. Walter Gilbert III of Newtown Alive
The African American community in the Newtown area of Sarasota has been severely impacted by the pandemic. Within the community people have banded together. Hear about how they have reacted to the events of the past year and provide support to the community. Listen to a panel of local stewards discuss the “real” issues of the health and economic hardships of 2020 and how the Newtown community responded to help. Walter Gilbert III, a long time resident of Newtown and active in bringing the community together to address issues, will lead the panel. Vicki Oldham of Newtown Alive will be joining him. Additional information and history of Newtown can be found at NewtownAlive.org.
For all of you who went on the Newtown Alive Trolley tour, don't miss a chance to see Vicki and Walter again!
Katie McCoy and her guide dog Bristol will enlighten us on how 'Together We're Changing The World, One Dog At A Time'. The extraordinary labradors, golden retrievers and goldadors of Southeastern Guide Dogs are smart, fit and highly trained. They are like elite athletes prepared for the challenge!
Southeastern's guide dogs are superheroes who help the visually impaired. They give people with vision loss the independence they need to live life to its fullest. Service dogs give veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and other disabilities the help they need to emerge from seclusion and overcome anxiety. And skilled companion dogs give hope to children facing significant challenges like vision loss or the loss of a parent in the military.
As this is our annual meeting, we will also hold CCSM Board Elections, more to be posted later.
Page to Stage, How New Musicals are Born at Asolo Repertory Theater
Knoxville, based on the Pulitzer prize-winning work of James Agee comes to the Asolo Rep stage this Spring--but that's just the end of the story...
Join us for a discussion on Knoxville with James Monaghan, Dramaturg & Literary Manager, Asolo Repertory Theater. During this event, you will get a behind the scenes look at the creation of a new musical, from the first idea until the curtain goes up.
Shortly after his death in 1955, James Agee's partially autobiographical novel, A Death in the Family, was compiled by an editor and released to great acclaim. It was later adapted into a lauded play titled All the Way Home and, in 1963, a film by the same name. Fast forward nearly 60 years and the story is once again being transformed by some of the greatest theatrical minds of our day. Get an inside look at how the author's original work has been treated, learn the new considerations when introducing music to the story, and discuss how the work resonates today.
Here's a link that shares just a tid-bit of the fantastic music from the show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj_rGD4feec
Zoom link will be sent in your confirmation email and the reminders the day before and at the time of the event.
