The Gifts of the Magi, a Musical
Academy Center of the Arts – The Academy Center of the Arts is excited to produce the O.Henry classic, The Gifts of the Magi, showing in the Warehouse Theatre November 30 – December 3! Pulled directly from the stories of O. Henry, the Gifts of the Magi is set in New York City around the turn of the 20th century. Christmas is approaching, but for one young couple (Jim and Della) the prospects for celebration are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless. The thread of their story is woven by newsboy-narrator Willy, who guides us along our journey with Jim and Della while introducing us to various city folk going about their holiday business, as well as the amusing plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy who longs to be arrested. A simple story about the consequences and significance of the act of giving, The Gifts of the Magi creates an aura of warmth in the cold, impersonal winter city. ----- Thanks to Areva for sponsoring the winter Community Through Theatre production. ----- SHOWS: Thursday, November 30 | 7:00pm Friday, December 1 | 7:00pm Saturday, December 2 | 7:00pm Sunday, December 3 | 2:00pm TICKETS: $12 students $14 seniors $17 adults ----- All tickets for this show will be sold through academycenter.org and our etix system.

Rikers Island Film Screening, Panelist Discussion & Poetry
Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College – In conjunction with Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College Carceral States Exhibition, Many Voices One Community presents.... A screening an award-winning Bill Moyer documentary film, Rikers Island An American Jail, panel discussion to include a previously incarcerated individual from Rikers Island, local individuals, and poetry reading of selecting writings from Parchman Penitentiary on Saturday, December 2, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Film Description: The United States is facing a crisis of mass incarceration with over 2.2 million people packed into its jails and prisons. To understand the human toll of this crisis, Rikers Island is a good place to start. Of the more than 7,500 people detained at Rikers Island on any given day, almost 80% have not yet been found guilty or innocent of the charges they face. All are at risk in the pervasive culture of violence that forces people to come to terms with what they must do for their own survival. RIKERS: AN AMERICAN JAIL, a riveting new documentary from Bill Moyers, brings you face to face with men and women who have endured incarceration at Rikers Island. Their stories, told direct to camera, vividly describe the cruel arc of the Rikers experience—from the shock of entry, to the extortion and control exercised by other inmates, the oppressive interaction with corrections officers, the beatings and stabbings, the torture of solitary confinement and the many challenges of returning to the outside world. http://rikersfilm.org/synopsis/ Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College Carceral States Exhibition, September 22 - December 15, 2017, http://maiermuseum.org/carceralstates/
