Vokes Players Announce Their Production of Shakespeare’s King Lear

The Vokes Players of Wayland present Shakespeare’s King Lear, directed by John Barrett. Performances will be held at Beatrice Herford’s Vokes Theatre, Route 20 in Wayland, MA from May 4th through May 20th Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8pm with a 2pm matinee on Saturdays, May 13th & May 20th. For tickets and information call 508-358-4034, or order online via our website www.vokesplayers.org. Ticket prices are $18 for Thursday evenings; $19 for Saturday matinees; $22 for Friday & Saturday evenings.

One of the great tragic figures of the English theater, King Lear begins his story at the height of power — unaware that by dividing his country among his daughters, he is kicking off a chain of events that will lead to a horrible end. This division of power sets in motion betrayals, battles and subterfuge. As Lear’s fate worsens, his descent into madness is made more poignant as it coincides with his growing awareness of his foolishness and the lost loves of his life. Over and again, events build to a crash of over-reaching desire that pits sister against sister, brother against brother, daughter against father, wife against husband. The lust for power, the disregard for civility, the savage brutality — all the passions held in the hearts of princesses, dukes, earls, and those who want more.

The cast for the show includes: Agatha Babbitt, Alex Thayer, Andrew Harrington, Andy Moore, Bill Stambaugh, Bob Zawistowki, David Frank, Jeff Robinson, Jenny Fielding, Joel Hersh, Julian Willard, Mason Beutler, Mike Lague, Nicholas Meunier, Shira Cahn-Lipman, Tom Dinger, Tom Kilgallen, and Webb Tilney.

nullThe historic Beatrice Herford’s Vokes Theatre in Wayland is one of the truly unique cultural and historical resources in Metrowest. The Vokes Players is a non-profit theatrical organization. King Lear is the third production of our 2016-17 season. The theatre is wheelchair accessible. For more information about the Vokes Players, visit our website – www.vokesplayers.org.

Wayland High School A Cappella Groups Gearing up for Spring Concert

Wayland High School’s talented a cappella groups – the Muses, T-Tones and Madrigals – are hard at work preparing for the spring College A Cappella Concert on Saturday, April 1, a wonderful tradition welcoming spring to the Wayland community.

The concert will be held at WHS at 7:30pm this Saturday and will feature the Wayland High School Muses, T-Tones, and Madrigals, along with three outstanding college groups — returning favorites Berklee’s Pitch Slapped and Tufts’ Beelzebubs, and performing for the first time in Wayland — Yale’s New Blue, featuring Wayland High School alum Anna Lifland!  WHS seniors Andrea Ponce and Clare Lippincott will MC this fun spring tradition!

A cappella music features fresh arrangements of both classic and contemporary songs performed by unaccompanied singers, though vocalists sometimes emulate instruments. Having experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent years, a cappella attracts the most talented singers on high school and college campuses nationwide.

Priced at $18, tickets are available now at Donelan’s, Russell’s Garden Center, and online at the WHS CAPA website. Tickets to these concerts frequently sell-out, so purchase early to guarantee a seat! You can find pictures, videos, and additional information on the concert’s Facebook page, and on the CAPA website.

The bi-annual college a cappella concerts (fall and spring) are the primary fundraisers for the Creative Arts Parents Association (CAPA), the organization that supports all Wayland High School arts, music and theater programs. For more information, to join the mailing list, or to make a separate donation, visit www.whsarts.org.

 

Pom-Pom Zombies, March 22-25 at WMS

The not-quite-dead overrun Wayland Middle School in this year’s Spring Musical Pom-Pom Zombies, written and composed by our very own choral director, Dr. Stephen Murray.

It’s the late 1960s, school’s out for the summer, and the teenagers of Ocean View High are ready to surf, sun, and have some fun. Their favorite hangout is Barnacle Betty’s Beach Club, adjacent to the nuclear power plant owned and operated by the evil Ivana Ratnick. But, oops! Cindy Sue, the head cheerleader, accidentally gets some nuclear slime on her hot dog instead of pickle relish, and soon the beach is swarming with pom-pom wielding zombies! The school football players, nerds, hippies, and the local biker gang rally to stop Ivana and the atomic attackers and save the world!

Staffer Tom Large directs, with choreography by Klara Sands and art direction by Peter Curran.

Performances of Pom-Pom Zombies will be given at Wayland Middle School Theater, 201 Main Street, Wayland, MA at the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, March 22 at 2:00 pm
  • Thursday, March 23 at 7:30 pm
  • Friday, March 24 at 7:30 pm
  • Saturday, March 25 at 12:30 pm

Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Tickets may be purchased at the door 30 minutes prior to show time. Senior Citizen admission is free for the Wednesday matinee at 2 pm. There is no advanced sale or reserved seating.
