Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will say goodbye to the Wicked Winter of 2015 and celebrate the 1st Saturday of Spring at the Harpoon Helps Cupid Splash plunge and pledge fundraiser on Saturday, March 21 at noon at the BCYF Curley Community Center at M Street Beach in South Boston.
Though there is still snow on the beach and ice on Boston Harbor we expect hundreds of costumed Cupid Splashers to take the plunge, which will raise funds to support free beach events and programs in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull this summer.
Registration is just $20, and includes a refreshing Harpoon Beer and a burger and the chance to win JetBlue flights for biggest fundraiser and best costumes, all for a very good cause. You can register online at www.cupidsplash.com and start a team, challenge a friend or simply sign up as a “Chicken” and join Save the Harbor for a beer and burger at the party.
The Eastern Nazarene College Theatre Department will present its production of Doubt at 7:30 p.m. April 23-25 in the Cove Fine Arts Center on the college’s main Quincy campus.
Set in New York City in the 1960s, Doubt takes place in a Catholic parochial school, where the school’s principal – a conservative nun – suspects a popular, progressive priest of molesting the school’s first African-American student. The play won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play before being made into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep.
ENC’s production of Doubt will be directed by senior ENC student Evan Detwiler.
“Doubt poses a number of questions for audiences to consider,” said Tara Brooke Watkins, the production’s producer and artistic director. “What is it like to be a woman in a man’s world? What is it like to be a black woman in a white world? What is it like to be labeled a homosexual? And is everything as black and white as we would like for it to be?”
To address the questions, Watkins noted, Detwiler has created a concept that uses tones of black, white and grey throughout the play’s set and costumes. The production will also be presented in a “black box” format in order to bring the audience into the story.
Eastern Nazarene College is located at 23 E. Elm Ave. in Quincy. Tickets for Doubt are $10 general admission, $8 students and seniors. For tickets or more information, call the ENC box office at 617-745-3715 or visit www.brownpapertickets.com.
