Susan MacQueen


Susan MacQueen explores themes of community and individuality through the creation of images of sheep, which she sculpts, paints, or draws.



Fink


Hannah Fink works with a variety of found objects and recycled materials, forming garments that are often either enormous or diminutive in size. These objects hang from the ceiling, attach to the wall or are freestanding, with highly textured, nuanced surfaces that appear to be well-worn relics from a distant past.

Princeton Variety Theater "Peter Pan" Auditions

- Free & Open to the Public!

In March 2016, The Arts Council of Princeton Variety Theater group will stage Peter Pan at the Princeton Public Pool: Pirates, Pandemonium and Panto! The first Audition session will take place on November 17 in the Solley Theater at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, NJ from 7 to 9pm.

This will be Princeton Variety Theater’s seventh show and our third Panto in the British style, following our success with Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella, the UGGly Version in 2014 and 2015.

In typical Panto tradition, we’re writing our own version of a well-known tale and adapting it for our local setting. Expect to see the tensions familiar to America’s best small town played out in song and plenty of gentle fun-poking at local institutions.

We are looking for actors, singers and dancers to perform in the show plus lots of backstage help: front of house, costume, stage management, lighting, sound, effects, props and more. Both adults and children are welcome. Rehearsals will start in the first week of December and continue through the first week of March with a Holiday break.

We’re staging the show at the Little Theater at Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart on March 5 and 6.

To perform in the show, you must attend one audition. Audition dates are November 17 & 19. Adults and teens should attend the whole audition; younger children may leave at 8pm.

Felted Mittens: ACP

- $75

Wooly Wearables: A series of single workshops to make all your winter accessories. Sign up individually or come to all 3!  Please note that these three workshops take place in various locations: 10/24 at Morven; 11/21 at ACP; 12/5 at Stony Brook – Millstone Watershed.

To complete our series of winter accessories students will make a pair of mittens that will actually fit them! Similar in technique as the felted hat, we will be using a piece of plastic between layers of carded merino wool and silk fabric to create a 3D shape. At the final stage the mittens will be shaped on our hands. Please bring 2 old towels and 10 plastic shopping bags to class.  Materials used: dyed merino wool, silk fabric pieces and other silk fibers. Materials will be supplied by the instructor for an additional cost of $15.
