Eastport Arts Center’s annual International Dinner, a tradition of more than twenty years, will be held on Saturday, February 15 at 6 pm. The candle-lit buffet is made possible by the contributions of many enthusiastic cooks, who create dozens of tempting ethnic dishes. With flags from around the globe making the center bright and gay, the feast is a great way to reconnect with friends in spite of winter’s chill, with toe-tapping tunes by Keltic Schmeltic and dances by EAC’s International Dance group adding to the festive atmosphere. As well as a social highlight of the season, the event is an important fundraiser for the center’s extensive slate of year-round programming.
Directed by Island Institute Fellow Mark Macey, and starring Brian Schuth and Jenie M. Smith, "Dear Elizabeth" captures the extraordinary 30-year friendship between poets Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell. The play is composed exclusively of excerpts from the poets correspondence. The play will be staged intimately, giving viewers the opportunity to enter into the world of these two poets. The venue is the former band room at Shead High School, thus seating is limited, and patrons are urged to purchase tickets on-line at stageeast.org beginning February 1.
