This real-time/live-streamed performance and the educational initiative was created by Boston Brass in recognition that presenting organizations and music programs across the country are also experiencing the COVID-related difficulties of keeping their doors open, maintaining the interest of their patrons and helping school music programs in their communities to keep students engaged. With over 35 years of international touring behind them, Boston Brass offers a terrific, artistically entertaining “something-for-everyone” program featuring familiar classical works to popular jazz standards, all delivered with the ensemble’s signature audience interaction and charming rapport.

WATCH NOW!

IN HARDY HALL OR VIEW ART ONLINE

The mind of an artist is seldom still. There are ideas all around us, each waiting to be explored. It is this desire to search and experiment that has driven Mary Wahr to become an eclectic, experimental artist. Mary’s retrospective begins with a charcoal from high school then moves through her life of exploration. The show includes drawing, painting, printmaking, paper casting, scratchboards, and collage. One highlight is her work in fractals, which she developed while getting her Masters in Art Education.  Then while waiting out her ‘stay at home orders’ Mary used printmaking as a diversion. You are sure to see something to make you smile, think, and maybe laugh.

Opening on Friday, October 16! Available through November 13. The exhibit is available for viewing on Friday only from 12pm – 3pm. Due to COVID-19, guests will be asked to reserve a time and day online.

IN HARDY HALL

AND DOWNTOWN MANISTEE

The Lamplighter harks back to the early days when streets of most towns and cities were lit by gas lamps. By means of long poles, ladders, and even tall bikes, these lamps had to be lit each night as dusk turned to darkness. Lamplighters provided not only light but also safety in their communities. More than just a job, these harbingers of light represent a way of life: illuminating darkness. We all carry light within us and The Lamplighter symbolizes a collective connection to spread that light.

IMPORTANT

An interactive sculpture will be placed next to the Christmas tree in downtown Manistee.

An art exhibit will be available in Hardy Hall Dec 4 – 28. Open 12-3 during sleighbell weekend (Dec 4 – 6, 2020).

AT THE THEATRE

SCREENED (NOT LIVE)

One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the Ramsdell in the largest-ever production of the breathtaking musical. The musical, set in 1933, tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-the-musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva, and star of the show takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found —someone like Peggy Sawyer!).

Filmed in 2018 at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards (“Lullaby of Broadway”, “We’re in the Money (the gold digger’s song), “42ndStreet” and more), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
