Directed by Tyler Dobrowsky

Providence, 1942: Oberon Play House’s director and leading men are off at war. Determined to press on, the director’s wife sets out to produce an all-female version of Shakespeare’s Henry V, assembling an increasingly unexpected team united in desire, if not actual theater experience. Together they deliver a delightful celebration of collaboration and persistence when the show must go on! A surprisingly modern and moving comedy about the singular way art and community reveal our boldest selves even in the darkest times.

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
In a city besieged with crime and pay-to-play politics, a corrupt deputy and a devout nun enter into a perverse bargain. Will modest Isabella surrender her chastity to save her brother from the sex crime he’s accused of? Or will she preserve her maidenhead and condemn her brother to death? In Shakespeare’s blackest comedy, Measure for Measure is a scathing indictment of political and religious hypocrisy as well as a darkly poetic quest to discover the true nature of justice.

J Studio, February 22-24 and March 1-3, 2018, 7:30 p.m., February 25 and March 4, 2 p.m.

Othello @ Trinity Rep
Feb 23 @ 7:30 pm
Othello @ Trinity Rep | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Whitney White
Featuring Jude Sandy as Othello, Rebecca Gibel as Desdemona, and Stephen Thorne as Iago
Friendship and betrayal, love and jealousy. Once Othello’s most trusted confidante, Iago’s envy-fueled passions unleash a betrayal with catastrophic results for Othello and his beloved bride Desdemona. Shakespeare’s profound tragedy is an enduring story of race, love, envy, and repentance. This stripped down retelling is the portrait of an unraveling mind amid a society engulfing and destroying its very best.

Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center
Feb 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Intro to Flamenco Workshop @ The Rhody Center | Coventry | Rhode Island | United States

In this workshop you will be introduced to flamenco dance. Flamenco is a very passionate dance form that ranges from fiery and exciting to very lighthearted and playful, while always displaying purposeful and thoughtful movement. No previous experience is necessary! Using flamenco’s 12 count palos (rhythms) Solea and Solea por Bulerias, we will develop our upper to lower body coordination through palmas (hand clapping), braceo (armwork) and zapateado (footwork) exercises. We will also take some time to review the Sevillanas from the previous session. Wear comfortable clothing and a comfortable shoe with a leather sole and slight heel. (Women and female-identified folks, if you have a long, flowing skirt and clean character shoes/comfortable shoes with a low, solid heel, please bring them! Men, if you have a clean pair of dress shoes or boots with a leather sole, perfect!) Led by Elizabeth Rivera. $25, or $20 through 2/5.

Dance Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall
Feb 25 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dance  Music Jam Sessions @ Goff Hall | Rehoboth | Massachusetts | United States

The dance music jam sessions continue in Rehoboth every Sunday night from 7-9 p.m. All are welcome!

Once a month throughout the year, the session is a Community Dance, at which we teach everything that needs teaching, depending on the experience of the dancers. The Community Dances go from 7 to 9 p.m. and are preceded by a potluck at 6 p.m.

All Jammers dances are held on Sunday nights from 7 to 9 with a potluck at 6 p.m.

For information or to check about cancellations, call Bob Elliott at 774-644-1369 or email him at bobolinkelliott@yahoo.com.

The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.

Now, to clear up those “mostly”s:
1) Sometimes we sing…or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other’s errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with “interesting” time signatures.

In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!
