Fair Trade Night with Sudbury Valley Trustees

Fair Trade Night with Sudbury Valley Trustees
Wednesday, November 8, 7:00 – 8:00 pm
18 Wolbach Road, Sudbury

Sudbury Valley Trustees is hosting a Fair Trade Night with local startup FairTrade Caravans, on Wednesday, November 8, 7:00 pm at Wolbach Farm, 18 Wolbach Road in Sudbury. At this presentation, learn more about the history of the fair trade movement, what the term “fair trade” means, and the impacts of consumers choosing fair trade products. There will be samples and tastings on hand of the high quality, fair trade products including coffees, teas, chocolates, honey specialty items, and handmade cards. RSVPs appreciated at www.svtweb.org/calendar

Carol Fassino of Framingham founded FairTrade Caravans to raise awareness of the fair trade industry and the origins of the products many Americans consume and use every day. Fair trade is a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability. According to Fassino, “World trade practices that currently exist promote the unequal distribution of wealth between nations. Buying products from producers in developing countries at a fair price is a more efficient way of promoting sustainable development than traditional charity and aid.” Principles of fair trade promote fair pay and working conditions for vulnerable farmers and artisans, environmental sustainability, children’s rights, stable economies and empowered communities.

During the month of November, SVT will be offering an assortment of coffees, teas, chocolates, honey, handmade cards through FairTrade Caravans, with 25% of the proceeds benefitting SVT.  Visit www.svtweb.org to learn more about the items, and RSVP for Fair Trade Night at Wolbach Farm.

SVT is a regional land trust protecting and caring for land in 36 communities surrounding the Concord, Assabet, and Sudbury Rivers.

Vokes Players Announce Their Fall Production of the Classic Musical Chicago

The Vokes Players of Wayland present Chicago, directed by Maryann Zschau, with musical direction by Howard Boles and choreography by Daniel Forest Sullivan. The music for Chicago was written by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse. Performances will be held at Beatrice Herford’s Vokes Theatre, Route 20 in Wayland from November 2 through November 18, Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8pm with a 2pm matinee on Saturdays, November 11 & 18. For tickets and information call 508-358-4034, or order online via www.vokesplayers.org. Ticket prices are $23 for Thursday evenings and Saturday matinees; $28 for Friday & Saturday evenings.

Kander and Ebb’s classic musical tells the twisted tale of killers Roxy Hart and Velma Kelly, who became famous for the salacious murders they were accused of committing. Chicago’s storied success over the decades stems from its unique vaudeville-style story-telling and continual flow of wonderful songs (beginning with All That Jazz). The show is set in 1920s Chicago, but its heart is in the America of the late 60s and early 70s. Much of the show’s character flows from the creative insight of the legendary Bob Fosse, whose Razzle Dazzle showbiz sensibility infuses every aspect of Chicago. It’s a show about people who crave the spotlight, and will do anything for fame – what’s more American than that?

The cast for the show includes: Jessica DePalo, Alecia Thomas, Barbara Pierre, Stephen Murray, Shawn Gelzleichter, Stephanie Mann, Pier Lamia Porter, Noa Baker-Durante, Allison Russell, Jenny Gratz Owens, Cynthia Krebs, Jill Braverman, Tracey O’Farrell, Rebecca Mayersohn, Billy Del Sesto, Francis Sheehan, Andrew Swansburg, Kai Chao, Doug Hodge, and John Crampton.

The 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. Chicago is the first production of our 2017-18 season. The theatre is wheelchair accessible. For more information about the Vokes Players, visit their website, www.vokesplayers.org.
