The Sherman Players - Dark Of The Moon

09/22/2017 to 10/15/2017

5 CT-39, Sherman, CT Phone: (860) 354-3622.

A perennial favorite Dark of the Moon is based on the haunting folk ballad of "Barbara Allen." Employing a large cast and imaginative settings in the Smoky Mountains, Dark of the Moon recounts the story of John, a strange "witch boy" who upon first beholding the beautiful Barbara Allen immediately falls in love. He is given human form to woo and marry her on the condition that she remain true to him. Dark of the Moon was produced on Broadway in 1945.

Theatreworks Merrily We Roll Along

09/22/2017 to 09/30/2017

5 Brookside Ave., New Milford, CT Phone: 860-350-6883.

SEPTEMBER 22,23 28,29,30. Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Franklin Shepard and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered. Merrily We Roll Along is a modest-sized show that crackles with the wit, humor and intensity that embody the spirit of New York City. With a brilliant "Broadway-style" score and that deep insight one expects from any Sondheim endeavor, Merrily We Roll Along is a spirited and moving cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.

Gunn Memorial Library The Bulls Bridge to Waterbury Power Line in Washington, CT

09/23/2017

5 Wykeham Rd, Washington, CT Phone: 860-868-7756 .

Gunn Historical Museum, in collaboration with Steep Rock Association and Hollister House Garden, present Steve Jones and Zac Mirecki who will give a free, illustrated presentation titled, "The Bulls Bridge to Waterbury Power Line in Washington, CT", in the new program barn at Hollister House Garden at 300 Nettleton Hollow Road in Washington, CT. Following their presentation Steve and Zac will lead a history hike in Steep Rock Preserve in Washington, where participants will see and hear more about the remaining features of this power line. The Bulls Bridge hydroelectric power project, built on the Housatonic River in 1904, was the largest power project of its kind at the time east of the Rocky Mountains. Remarkably, the electricity generated here was not used locally, but transported 26 miles over to Waterbury. This created both amazement and disdain for the project. In their continuing research on this fascinating power line Steve and Zac have discovered new information which they will be sharing in their presentation. Steve and Zac will discuss the short but turbulent history of this power line, and rediscover its long-lost route through the southern part of Washington, Connecticut, including Nettleton Hollow, and they will have a display of the actual artifacts found along the route.
