The Palace Theatre Waterbury WAMS presents Appointment with Death

11/03/2017 to 11/06/2017

100 E. Main St, Waterbury, CT Phone: 203-346-2000.

An assorted group of travelers find themselves thrown together on an expedition to the rose red city of Petra. At the center of the group are Mrs. Boynton and her four stepchildren who never leave her side. This apparent devotion however is actually a facade for something far more sinister. Sarah King, a young English doctor, and her colleague, the eminent psychologist, Dr. Theodore Gerard, find themselves embroiled in a battle to free the children from the sadistic grasp of a tyrannical woman. This chilling play offers a unique take on the classic murder mystery, where Christie explores the realms of the sadistic mind and the devastating effects of long term psychological abuse. The play was adapted by Agatha Christie from her story, Appointment with Death, which was published in 1938.

We will discuss what the term 'true hibernator' means as well as discuss what the terms 'hibernation' and 'migration' mean while exploring one of our shorter nature trails here at the Barnes Nature Center. As we walk, we will also discuss what types of habitat, animals who hibernate, look for in the forest as potential hibernation spots. Jessica Maak came to be a volunteer for ELCCT through her own personal interest in environmental education, sustainability, preservation, and the overall joy it gives her to be involved in outreach programs in general. Jessica has worked for DEEP at Sleeping Giant State Forest, Nature's Classroom, and The National Audubon Society at Bent of the River, and is currently a preschool teacher.

Accumulated data supports the black bear is seldom aggressive toward humans. Felicia has been studying about bears for over 30 years. In the mid 1990's Felicia turned her passion for learning about bears into a passion for teaching about them. She created an education program called The Bear Reality. In 2008 Felicia developed a presentation for bear education programs she presents on a volunteer basis. Her audiences include libraries, nature centers, conservation groups, scouts and more. Since then, Felicia has provided presentations reaching over 8000 people at programs in CT, NY, MA, NH and, VT. Felicia believes outreach and education is key in having a better understanding about the life and behavior of bears. Hopefully this will lead to a higher tolerance which is instrumental in creating a strategy of coexistence between humans and bears. v Bears in Our World and Backyard v Bear Awareness, Safety and Conservation v Bear Folklore and Legends, Truths and Myths v Wildlife and Natural History.
