12/28/12 – Join us for an amazing acoustic performance by The Mallett Brothers Band
Dispatch Magazine calls them a "six-piece living inferno."
They have been “gobbling up accolades like sunflower seeds” since their 2009 inception, according to the Portland Press Herald.
They were voted Best Local Act, Best Live Act, Best Roots Act, and won additional awards for Best Local Album (Low Down) and Best Song (Low Down) in the 2012 Portland Phoenix Best Music Poll. They were voted Best Local Act, Best Live Act, and had their debut album named Best Local Album in the 2011 Phoenix BMP, after their first full year of playing together. They were nominated for "Best Emerging Artist" of 2011 by Deli Magazine, Boston, and "Best Band/Act in Maine" in the 2011 New England Music Awards.
01/03/13 – The Kings of the Hill (KOTH) use the theatric tradition of drag to blend humor, sex, politics, and music with character-driven story telling. KOTH's humble beginnings include a garage, sangria, and a hot summer night in July 2006. Since then they have produced and performed over a dozen full-length shows at venues including St. Lawrence Arts, Portland Performing Arts Center (home of Portland Stage Company), Geno’s Rock Club, the NorthStar Music Cafe, and One Longfellow Square. They have also performed in collaboration with other drag kings, drag queens, burlesque entertainers, and comedians in group shows around New England and on the main stage for Portland's Pride in the Park.
11/01/13 – Claudia Diller, a professional graphic designer and illustrator, has spent the past 40 years living and working in Maine. Dividing her time between the western mountains and the coast, her paintings represent those two worlds.
For Diller painting is an opportunity to occupy space that has no rules, boundaries or critics. Having spent only 2 1/2 years in college, she is essentially self taught and considers painting to be a simple reflection of her own mental meandering and a diary of the way she sees the world.
She uses acrylic, watercolor, and gouache, and has completed commercial illustrations, posters, children’s books and individual commissions in all three mediums.
Diller produces a weekly painting blog, and also paints 12 images every year specifically for her “Peaceful Places” wall and desk calendars.
12/05/13 – Broadway at Good Theater is back this year with two Broadway stars and a cast of 12 plus a 3-piece band. This annual fundraising event is a musical masterpiece featuring Broadway hits and holiday favorites. Shows tend to sell out, so be sure to get your tickets early and ring in the holidays with plenty of Good Theater cheer.
12/13/13 – As night descends on a snowy evening, the dancers take their places. The story is familiar, yet new. Set in the contemporary world, a holiday party for an IT office is mistakenly held at a dive bar on the outskirts of town. The Nutcracker Prince is a mild-mannered office worker who falls for a waitress, Clara, and struggles to work up the courage to make his move. When the Rat King and his biker gang come and crash the party, a combination of magic and mischief provided by the mysterious Drosselmeyer takes us on a whirlwind adventure through the night.
Adapted in satire from the original Nutcracker, The Nutcracker Burlesque inverts the conventions of traditional holiday shows. Performed by a live band at St. Lawrence Arts on Munjoy Hill in Portland, the show features a wide array of dance genres including ballet, gogo dancing, disco, hoedown, and classic burlesque. The music is adapted from the classic Nutcracker ballet to fit a keyboard, drum set, electric guitar and bass. Some patrons will recognize their favorite standards reinvented as Tchaikovsky never could have imagined.
Tickets for this 11th season of The Nutcracker Burlesque will go on sale at 12:01am, November 29th. The entire run of the show is typically sold out in a few days, so planning to purchase tickets on “Black Friday” is encouraged.
