It will include performances by Julia Othmer (from Kansas City) at the Mary Fischer Theater on May 25, Daring Greatly (from Canada) at the Sedona Creative Life Center on May 26, 12+ performers all day and all night at the Sedona Creative Life Center on May 27, 2 hit shows by Swedish jazz legend Gunhild Carling with Six String Society’s Pianotastic production at the Sedona Performing Art Center on May 28, and the festival finale at the Posse Grounds Pavilion with four major bands on May 29 .

This festival is programmed to feature music in all genres, including jazz, blues, soul, rock, boogie-woogie, trihop, and folk music. Yes, that’s right, something for everyone, says festival producer Kenneth Rexrode.

“Last year when we performed the Celestial Sirens show in Sedona, we had a great time with many people coming over from Southern California for the weekend. This year we hope to attract even more locals and tourists from the Verde Valley who appreciate good music.

Music is scheduled for the Sedona Performing Arts Center, Mary D. Fisher Theater, Sedona Creative Life Center and Posse Grounds Pavilion.

Rexrode said, “Our goal is to provide an intimate musical experience in many of Sedona’s already established venues. So far the response has been very strong as people look forward to seeing so many international and national acts in Sedona.

Full list of festival performers: Gunhild Carling, Whitney Shay, the Six String Society, Henri Herbert, Julia Othmer, Daring Greatly, Gregory Page, Brockett Parsons (from Lady Gaga) Anthony Cullins trio, Piatt Pund, Robert Parker, the Mother Road trio, Sergio Gutierrez, Tommy “Rocks” Anderson, Patrick Ki & Eric Miller & other special guests.

Gabbie Black focused on getting kids moving at Butler Lab School 55.

INDIANAPOLIS — On Monday, students at an IPS school received a visit — and fitness lessons — from a 500 festival princess.

Gabbie Black focus on getting kids moving at Butler Lab School 55.

“I’ve taken this passion that I have for fitness and I’m bringing it into IndyCar drivers and the racing world, and I’m teaching kids a bit about how IndyCar drivers are athletes,” Black said. “I ask them, ‘Are they athletes? Aren’t they? Why do they think that?’ and kind of grab their attention and educate them why they are athletes and why fitness is important to being an IndyCar driver.”

Students learned about drill and why IndyCar drivers need to stay in top shape.

As Black shared stretching lessons, the kids heard about all the fun things that await IMS drivers during the month of May.

Black, a graduate of Brownsburg High School, is a freshman at Indiana University majoring in exercise science.

The 500 Festival Princess program began in 1959 and is sponsored by the National Bank of Indianapolis. Each year, 33 princesses are selected to serve as ambassadors, representing the 500 Festival as well as their hometowns and universities.

The princesses receive a $1,000 scholarship made available by Marlyne Sexton, Indianapolis philanthropist and president of The Sexton Companies, and the 500 Festival Foundation.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KPTV) – Regence BlueCross BlueShield and the Portland Rose Festival Foundation will come together to donate $20,000 to North Pole Studios, a nonprofit that helps people with autism and developmental disabilities intellectual to succeed as artists.

Rich Jarvis of the Portland Rose Festival Foundation says the encouragement to educate in the arts and community was a perfect fit.

“The art and education aspect that comes through here shines brightly because we see people developing their skills who have developed wonderful works. That’s the purpose of the rose festival, is to be able to develop creative talents and to provide platforms for that,” says Jarvis.

North Pole gives artists the opportunity to complete projects from painting, drawing, sculpting, and even t-shirts. The donations will go towards things like hiring staff, materials, and hosting workshops, but their primary focus is accessibility for artists.

“A huge element that we support is just facilitating connections between opportunities for artists like this in the community who are really changing careers and often not performing blindly around their work,” says Sula Willson, Director of the North Pole Studios program.

The artist co-founder, Davis Wohlford, has already sold his art. It will be displayed inside the wrapper of a Moonstruck chocolate bar. Wohlford even has an ongoing project with the Oregon Zoo.

“I’m working on donating mod podge animals to the Oregon Zoo. The ones that come to mind, the ones that are at the zoo today, the ones from the past,” says Wohlford.

Artists say North Pole Studios gives them a sense of place and a sense of belonging.

“It’s very rewarding, and it also makes me feel a lot better about myself,” says artist Max.

“It’s so good to be around other artists who are like me; who are different, a good different and just be you and you make yourself,” Austin says.

There are currently 25 artists in the program, but North Pole Studios hopes with this donation they can expand later this year.

The check will be presented at the Distinguished Visitors Dinner during Fleet Week in June.

The Jersey City Theater Center kicks off week two of the 2022 New Play Festival on Friday, May 13, with selected works centered around the theme of strength. The festival is organized by Catalina Florina Florescu, Ph.D. and kicked off on Thursday, May 5.

“We live in times of war and intense change,” said Olga Levina, executive producer of JCTC. “How can we increase the emotional, mental and physical capacity to withstand the great force of daily trauma and the external pressure of our rapidly changing world? What is the source of your strength? These were the questions we asked ourselves as we approached this year’s festival.

“We dedicate this entire edition of this festival to our Ukrainian friends, who have shown the world their strength, beauty and resilience, and we are committed to helping them in any way possible. There is strength in life. love, there is joy in being together and there is the assurance that only we can overcome unspeakably painful times,” she said.

The second week of the festival begins Friday, May 13 and will feature a full-length play, “Woman with a Parasol”, written by Molly Kirschner de Montvale and directed by Hamutal Posklinksy. A question-and-answer session and discussion will follow the performance. Doors open at 7 p.m.

“Woman with a Parasol” tells the story of a neighborhood cat who frequents three homes and replaces something missing in each. The story is about interdependence, where a young man needs strength to love a cat that doesn’t belong to him; a couple takes a child to a polluted world; and a woman must choose to avoid a conventional life at the cost of giving up her child to pursue her dreams. The common thread is that they must find the strength to achieve their desires and this can cause harm to those closest to them.

The festival continues Thursday, May 19 with The Short Series, featuring a series of short plays directed by Lynne Marie Rosenberg and Michelle Chan with a Q&A and discussion to follow.

The series includes “A Universal Question” by Kathleen Maule Holen of Hays, KS, “Two Lovers and a Bear” by Tjaša Ferme of Slovenia and New York, NY, “The Men from the Mechanical Age” by Ioana Cosma of Romania, Pitesti, Arges, and “Unconventional” by Kristin Cotts of Washington, D.C.

JCTC Studios is located at 165 Newark Ave., Jersey City. You can enter at Barrow Street. Tickets for the New Play Festival are available at www.jctcenter.org.

The Southern Shakespeare Festival was in full bloom this weekend. Although bad weather forced the cancellation of Friday’s performance, Cascades Park was packed with fans on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
For the last two nights, a troupe of young people called ‘The Bardlings’ kicked off the evening with a condensed version of a famous Shakespearean tragedy.

“For there has never been a more unfortunate story than that of Juliet and her Romeo.”

This was followed by the adult troupe’s main attraction, the rambunctious comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing’.

“Because I have a lot of bad qualities.” “Oh, which is one?” “I say my prayers out loud!” “I love you all the better, even though the hero shouts, ‘Amen!'”

Veteran Southern Shakes actor Phil Croton played “Leonato” and noted that the plots were somewhat similar to modern television sitcoms.

“Misunderstandings and disappointments and people not opening up to their own feelings. So it’s very “soapy” and the subplots aren’t that mean and dark. Except of course for my poor daughter, but that’s another story.

Leonato’s daughter, “Hero”, must fake her death to stay alive. This year’s guest star was comedian Kevin McDonald of “Kids in the Hall.”

“Everyone is amazing! They are real actors, which hurts me to be with them. For their good!” he laughs.
