Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

An American doctor and an Irish journalist are being held captive by terrorists in Beirut. They exercise and they argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. They are joined by an English academic. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell. As time passes, resentments and recriminations give way to an acknowledgment of their characters, strengths and weaknesses. They learn that humor is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armor to protect themselves. They shoot imaginary films, they throw a big party for each other, they play a fantastical game of tennis, they laugh at and with each other, and they learn to lament what was lost in their lives before captivity. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others. At the end of the play, they are capable of standing together and alone. Category: Theater.

Whidbey Playhouse Auditions for Monty Python's SPAMALOT

Auditions for the Whidbey Playhouse production of MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT will take place Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5, 2014 in the theatre’s STAR Studio at 730 SE Midway Blvd, Oak Harbor, 98277. The Story: Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent, but it differs from the film in many ways, beginning with women slapping men in the face with fish. The Tony Award Winning Best Musical, Monty Python’s SPAMALOT has been hailed as “a no-holds-barred smash hit.” (The New Yorker). The musical will be directed by Jim and Sue Riney, and the choreography team is Claudia Samano-Losada, Daunne Zinger, Julie Rosenthal, Trent Oman and Wendy Rue.

Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

An American doctor and an Irish journalist are being held captive by terrorists in Beirut. They exercise and they argue, supportive in their mutual determination to survive. They are joined by an English academic. The three display their national biases and prejudices, which are intensified in the cramped confines of their cell. As time passes, resentments and recriminations give way to an acknowledgment of their characters, strengths and weaknesses. They learn that humor is their surest weapon against their captors and the safest armor to protect themselves. They shoot imaginary films, they throw a big party for each other, they play a fantastical game of tennis, they laugh at and with each other, and they learn to lament what was lost in their lives before captivity. Each comes to know himself through listening to the stories, sorrows and joys of the others. At the end of the play, they are capable of standing together and alone. Category: Theater.

The happy event will take place after St. Mary’s Sunday Catholic Mass in the sheltered breezeway between the church and the parish hall along NE 3rd Street, just off Main Street in Coupeville.

Let's Talk Books: The Dog Stars by Peter Heller

Hig somehow survived the flu pandemic that killed everyone he knows. Now his wife is gone, his friends are dead, and he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, Jasper, and a mercurial, gun-toting misanthrope named Bangley. But when a random transmission beams through the radio of his 1956 Cessna, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life exists outside their tightly controlled perimeter. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return and follows its static-broken trail, only to find something that is both better and worse than anything he could ever hope for. Did you love it? Did you hate it? Did it make you think? Come join the discussion and share your thoughts. Facilitated by Jamie Whitaker. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Cost: free.

Radical Wholeness: Coming to Our Senses in 21st Century with author Philip Shepherd

"The real adventure consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in seeing with new eyes." ~ Proust It's no wonder we feel anxiety, disconnection and stress in our lives: we live in a culture that actively promotes those feelings. Our architecture, language and customs all subtly inform us that to be human is to be independent: not just from nature or each other - but even from our own bodies, so we end up living in our heads. In this free wheeling talk, Philip reveals how particulars of our familiar environment create our deep sense of disconnection. Then, once you clearly see how that happens, you create a new possibility for yourself and can begin to step out of the undercurrent of anxiety, and return to a way of being that is deeply embodied, grounded in the present, and at ease with the world. A feeding on the oxygen of fresh ideas and liberating perspectives, this is more than a talk - it includes a couple simple practices to help you come home to yourself. Donation: $15 helps defer Philip's travel… Category: Classes & Lectures. Audience: Teens. Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms. Seniors. Cost: $15. Contact Name: Maureen Freehill.
