Award-Winning Theatre Reimagines Winnie the Pooh & Hosts Character Breakfast
Final Weekend October 19-21, 2018
NASHUA – Peacock Players, New Hampshire’s premiere award-winning youth theatre, proudly presents the new musical adaptation of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh for one final weekend in October at the Janice B. Streeter Theater, located at 14 Court Street in Nashua, NH.
Disney’s Winnie the Pooh KIDS is a delightful adaptation based on the beloved characters of A.A. Milne and the 2011 Disney animated feature film. Featuring favorite songs from the film, as well as new hits by the Academy Award-winning Robert and Kristen Lopez (Disney’s Frozen, Avenue Q), this honey-filled delight is as sweet as it is fun.
Welcome to the Hundred Acre Wood, where Winnie the Pooh is always in search of “hunny” for the rumbly in his tumbly. Along the way, Pooh meets his pals-- Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo-- but soon discovers that Christopher Robin has been captured by the mysterious Backson! As they prepare for a rescue operation, the animals learn about teamwork, friendship and (of course)… sharing snacks.
The cast of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh KIDS will be led by Grace Giannetti (of Amherst) as Owl. The rest of the ensemble is rounded out with New Hampshire’s most recognized and awarded young theatre performers, including Abigail Giannetti (of Amherst).
Disney’s Winnie the Pooh KIDS final performances are scheduled for Friday October 19th @ 7pm, Saturday October 20th @ 10am & 2pm, and Sunday October 21st @ 2pm. To purchase tickets, or for more information, call the Box Office at (603) 886-7000 or visit www.peacockplayers.org.

Milford Area Players Present Death of a Salesman at the Amato Center
Milford Area Players, winner of the 2013, 2011, and 2009 New Hampshire Theatre Award for Best Production in Drama/Comedy for Community Theatre, is proud to present Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts, 56 Mont Vernon Street, Milford, NH, October 19, 20 and 21.
Hailed as the quintessential American play, this classic Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama of a man’s desperate search for money and respect explodes with poignancy and relevance. Willy Loman desperately craves success for himself and his sons, but stark reality cannot live up to his dreams. The wall of delusions he has constructed quietly crumbles around him while a devastated and demoralized man searches in vain for a hidden path to greatness, losing the respect of his son Biff in the process. Death of a Salesman is a masterpiece that everyone should see performed live.
The cast of Death of a Salesman includes Vick Bennison of Amherst; Deirdre Bridge of Derry; James Haupt of Hudson; Katie Collins, Sierra Jones, Elliot Owens, and Anja Parish of Manchester; Neal Blaiklock, Jason Crowell, and Kevin Linkroum of Merrimack; Devereaux Merchant of Milford; Len Deming of Nashua; and Zachary Peacock of Weare. The play is directed by Vicky Sandin of Nashua.
Death of a Salesman will be staged by the Milford Area Players for two weekends, October 12-21, with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. General admission tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (60+) and students. Advance tickets are available at Toadstool Bookshop and online at www.MilfordAreaPlayers.org. Tickets are also available at the door. The theater is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible.

“Solstice Sunset” ©2018 Daryl D. Johnson 30 x 48” Oils on canvas
Exhibit at Fry Fine Art’s Pelletier Studio
PETERBOROUGH – Fry Fine Art, a gallery specializing in 19th, 20th and 21st-century works and located on Grove Street in Peterborough is pleased to welcome an exhibition of oil cloudscapes to its Pelletier Studio. “The Chi of Clouds — New Works by Daryl D. Johnson” will run through October 28.
Described by Art New England magazine as “…gestural realist landscapes with the overall effect of speeding through layers of lighted space,” Johnson's oil paintings of skies resonate with pulsing waves of clouds and rhythms of color.
Daryl D. Johnson was born in Manhattan, grew up in NYC’s suburbs and moved to New Hampshire in 1988. Johnson has a BFA from Hope College in Holland, MI and studied at the world including Fidelity Investments, Delta Airlines and Pepsico. She maintains the Vermont Studio School and The Art Students League of New York. Johnson's paintings have won numerous awards and are in private and corporate collections, and has a studio in Amherst.
Johnson says of her work: “Shifting water patterns and rising transient clouds reflect nature’s energy in my oil paintings. The views are familiar, but the subtext is the underlying chi, the sweeping momentum. The earth “breathes” in and out with compositions of uplifting shapes. These oils on canvas celebrate the vibration of the planet.” For more information, contact Mindy Taylor at 784-5420 or email Mindy@fryFineArt.com.

PR Tarbell – "Migration Relection II", oil on canvas, 36 x 48 in
“Fall Art Exhibit” at Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden
Artists: Stephanie Bush, Dustan Knight, Pamela R. Tarbell, and Soo Rye Yoo, four mature women artists with impressive resumes on exhibit through December 24.
CONCORD – As artists, they started drawing with crayons from an early age and never looked back. Their talent was noted in high school as their love of art expanded. Continuing to art school they honed their skills, receiving Bachelor of Fine Art Degrees en route to their successful careers.
Stephanie Bush grew up in Canada and received her fine art degree before moving to Vermont, where she settled and raised a family. Her love of painting cows is evident through the connection she establishes in their direct and gentle gaze.
Dustan Knight’s love of flowers lead her to write a book, and to give art lessons and demonstrations to numerous groups. With seasonal changes, she is moved to paint abstract birch trees in the so-called off season.
Pamela R. Tarbell is director of the Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden for the twenty-two years. She was recently picked by New Hampshire Magazine as one of the women artists in New Hampshire to keep your eye on.
Soo Rye Yoo is from South Korea and has settled into New Hampshire as her permanent home. Her contemporary paintings are inspired by the natural surroundings and her appreciation of the environment.
