Performance Details for February, 2011

Saturday & Sunday, February 5 & 6 at 10:30am Makeshift Theatre Co.‘s Treasure Island This is a faithful adaptation of the classic tale by Robert Louis Stevenson, created to move quickly in exciting storytelling fashion as the shipwrecked sailor Ben Gunn greets the audience with an enthusiastically-delivered telling of his great adventure, which evolves very swiftly into a storytelling challenge between Gunn and rip-roaring pirate Long John Silver. As these two magnificently colorful sea squabblers square off and try to top each other with their renditions, the story comes to life and all of Stevenson’s beloved characters appear in gripping, intriguing, swashbuckling scenes leading to the great battle and chase at the end. Adapted by Jack Neary.  http://makeshifttheatre.com/

Saturday, February 12 at 10:30am Margot Fox—Folk-Rock For Families Clap your hands and wiggle your toes to Margot Fox’s family-friendly folk-rock! Her latest cd, “Moose Crossing,” gets the whole family dancing and singing. Join Margot and drummer, Pat Tambor, for some groovin’, participatory fun. Margot will play songs from “Moose Crossing,” “14” and some new favorites including “Jammin’ in the Van.”            Margot has been entertaining families and children for more than ten years in theatres, libraries, and schools.

Adults will appreciate the folk/rock influences that make her music a joy for any age.
