Nation's Only "Victorian Magic-Lantern Spring Show"
Saturday, April 25 ~ 2:00 pm
presented by the Litchfield Historical Society
and Litchfield Community Center
Join the Litchfield Historical Society and the Litchfield Community Center
for a special performance by The American Magic-Lantern Theater of their
"Magic-Lantern Spring Show" on Saturday, April 25 at 2:00 p.m.
 at the Litchfield Community Center.

In this gay nineties show, Sally O'Grady does battle with a rambunctious goat.  
Highlanders do battle with their King in Scott's "The Lady of the Lake."  

Spring lovers sing that their "love is like a red, red, rose."  And an animated clown,
 suffering a very severe case of hay fever, blows till his nose explodes.
 From an age before TV and before movies, Victorians mixed boisterous
fun and touching pathos in their entertainment.

Image credit: American Magic Lantern Theater
Terry Borton, Magic-Lantern Showman, uses an 1890s magic
 lantern to project the pictures in the Magic-Lantern Show

The show uses an antique "magic-lantern" -- the multi-media
projector of 100 years ago. The lantern rapidly projects spectacular
color slides on a full-size movie screen.  The slides, many of them animated,
illustrate Victorian stories, songs and comedy of Spring.  They're dramatized
by a costumed showman, singers, and musicians -- and by the audience, which
provides the sound effects, claps, stomps, and joins in chants and sing-alongs.
To learn more about The American Magic Lantern Theater,

Tickets are $5 for an individual member,
$10 for an individual non-member and
$15 for a family group (2+ people)

Space is limited. Registration is required.
Payment is required at time of registration.

Women's Forum of Litchfield Presents:
"From S&H Green Stamps to US Postage Stamps"
Acclaimed Photography Sally Anderson Bruce
Thursday, May 7 ~ 2:30 pm
Sally Andersen-Bruce
Sally Andersen-Bruce, a Connecticut photographer, is pictured with the
image she photographed for the international holiday stamp “Silver
Bells” that was released by the US Post Office this past Christmas

The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes Sally Andersen-Bruce,
an acclaimed photographer from New Milford, to speak on
 “From S&H Green Stamps to U.S. Postage Stamps”

Ms. Andersen-Bruce graduated with honors from the Art Center of Design
in Pasadena, California and is a former student of award-winning graphic
designer James Miho.  She has worked with museums and global design
workshops as well as taken photos of corporate executives and products
for annual reports and websites.  Her greatest artistic challenge,
however, lies in creating photographs that can visually translate to a
one-inch image that is instantly recognizable. Her exacting attention to
detail, design sense and perseverance come into play as she creates her
most impressive showcase: creating images for some of the most popular
postage stamps.

Although designing postage stamps is a laborious, bureaucratic and not
very lucrative endeavor, it brings her stunningly simple images to an
extremely wide audience.  She says, “My stamp sales are in the billions
because my press runs are so large.  Probably everyone reading this has
seen my work and probably many have used my stamps, although I bet not
one knows my name”

In addition to her holiday stamp designs such as gingerbread houses,
snowmen and holiday nutcrackers, she has also photographed a subject
close to her heart: shelter pets.  She has photographed animals at the
Little Guild of St. Francis shelter in Cornwall and met talk show host
Ellen DeGeneres, who helped dedicate one of the USPS’s biggest animal
rescue series in California.  One of her favorite animal subjects is her
own Irish setter, Brenna.

The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door,
which includes a High Tea reception. The contacts for more information
are 860.605.7027 and womensforumoflitchfield.org.

Winner of Outstanding Production, Best Actress,

Directed by Sharon Wilcox
photo credit CCTA/Deb Cryan

The story begins around 10:00 in the morning on the well-worn back porch of the
Jardinière home in Athens, Mississippi. We invite you to go on this journey with
two aging sisters. The older sister, Delphie, is the caretaker for her younger
brain-damaged sister, Rosie, who has the cognitive and emotional development
of a 5-year-old. Delphie is now seriously ill, and has the gut-wrenching
 task of planning her sister's future without her.

L-R: Jane Coughlin, Lily Rusek, Sharon Wilcox and Lea Dmytrych - BZ photo

Winter Flowers, by Lily Rusek, was originally performed at the
2nd Annual Warner Theatre International Playwright Festival in October of 2013,
and is produced by special arrangement with the playwright.

It features Lea Dmytrych as Delphie and Jane Coughlin as Rosie,
and was directed by Sharon Wilcox.
It went on to win the CT Community Theatre Association Festival
 in October 2014, when Lea also won Best Actress.

Then on February 28th of this year, they competed in the
New England Regional Theatre Festival, winning Outstanding Production,
with Lea and Jane tying for Best Actress,
 and Sharon Wilcox winning Best Director.

And now it's off to Grand Rapids, Michigan
 in June to compete in the Nationals!

Donations at door will be given to our local stars and crew to support
their trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan, to compete on the National Stage.

So come out and support two VERY excited Litchfield residents,
