Chimera Productions presents Dead Man's Cell Phone

- $12 ACP Member, Student, Senior; $15 General Admission

Dead Man’s Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl is a fast and witty dive into isolationism, mortality, and the vice grip that modern technology has on all of us. Jean makes a fateful decision at a café and begins a whirlwind turn that pits her against societal norms and one man’s offbeat family. As she continues deeper into his crazy world, she finds herself feeling more alive than ever before, but at what cost?

About Chimera Productions:
Chimera Productions was founded by a group of artists who produce plays solely for their artistic merit. Why Chimera Productions? A Chimera is an imaginary monster comprised of incongruous parts; an illusion or fabrication of the mind; something that is fantastically visionary, improbable or the product of an unchecked imagination.

The company’s goal is to only produce work that is interesting, enlightening, and not often seen; to explore the power of theater, and the bond between artist and live audience. Dead Man’s Cell Phone is our 12th consecutive production at the Arts Council of Princeton.

Support Chimera Productions by backing the project here.

Doors: 7:30pm
Curtain: 8pm

Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven: Princeton Paintings by James McPhillips

“Having worked for McCarter Theatre, I gained an appreciation for Princeton’s people, architecture, university and businesses. All of which have been natural inspiration for my paintings and even my graphic work like the Prince-TON art. After McCarter, I partnered with jane shop (7 Spring St.) to showcase my Princeton work and beyond (currently a Paris series). I am grateful, honored and thrilled that Arts Council of Princeton and The Princeton Public Library asked me to share these pieces for the launch of the second floor renovation.”

Developing a Vision Board

- $45

Join an exclusive artistic workshop where life goals are the focal point. Art gives us the ability to express ourselves by sharing our passions, ambitions and emotions in bold, often colorful ways. In this workshop – led by Taneshia Nash Laird, the Executive Director of the Arts Council of Princeton – you will use collage art to create personalized vision boards that express your desires for the future. You can choose to focus on personal or professional goals or both!

This supportive group event merely requires you to bring a list of your goals—either on paper or in your head—and a positive attitude. We will talk about the steps you need to reach your goals and then use the medium of a collage to create an art piece that best represents to you the milestones you want to reach. Upon completion of the workshop, each participant will leave with a collage that visually represents their goals. 

All supplies provided. Light refreshments will be served.

All revenue from this workshop will go towards the funding of the Arts Council of Princeton’s community outreach programs
