BIG EYES

2014, 105 minutes, PG-13

Director: Tim Burton

Stars: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman

Walter Keane became a worldwide celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950s after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, and used his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret, his shy wife. The ruse broke up their marriage and led to a divorce and a dramatic courtroom battle to prove authorship of the paintings.

Priority seating given to Great Neck School District residents. Please bring your library card or driver's license. Ten (10) minutes before the film begins, no seat may be held, and non-residents will be seated if space permits.

Levels' 2015 Summer Musical is actually two, two, TWO musicals in one!


 

The first mini-musical, Manhole! Manhole!, features book, lyrics and direction by Solly Kasab and Zach Lee, and music by Zach Lee, with choreography by Julia Prager-Hessel.  It begins on one fateful day when a boy named Billy falls into an open manhole.  His cries for help draw the attention of many people walking by, including construction workers, military officers and even the President.  But everyone who tries to assist Billy also falls into the manhole.  When things get hopeless, Billy plans to lead the group into the sewers to find an escape. But what, or who, could be lurking in the labyrinth below?  

It’s followed by Troll 2: The Musical Parody, a take-off on the cult classic horror movie Troll 2.  It’s written by members of the Levels Make-a-Musical Workshop and directed by Daisy Korman, with choreography by Molly Racsko.  This musical tells the tale of young Joshua Waits, who joins his family on a trip to the town of NILBOG (spell it backwards!)  He soon realizes the inhabitants of the town are evil vegetarian goblins (NOT trolls) who want to perform “vegimication” on his family and eat them.  The only things that can help Joshua defeat the goblins (NOT trolls) are his dead Grandpa Seth (who’s a ghost) and a double-decker baloney sandwich.

The shows are produced by Peri Litt, with set design by Spencer Berman and Aaron Young, costume design by David Epstein, and lighting design by Aral Soykan.    Both shows are performed by a repertory cast of students representing all five Great Neck secondary schools, including Aryaman Bahri, Spencer Berman, Ricky Cole, Max Cruz, Nicole Cruz, David Epstein, Janaé B. Fouché, Solly Kasab, Daisy Korman, Zach Lee, Ben Lesser, Ishaan Pathak, Julia Prager-Hessel, Molly Racsko, Winston Riggs, Ashley Schlusselberg, Rachel Schlusselberg, Aral Soykan, Berk Soykan, Omeed Tartak, Justin Wooster, Aaron Young and Emma Young.

Admission is FREE. Tickets are intended to guarantee prime seating, and can be requested at the Circulation Desks of all Great Neck Library facilities.  Doors open 45 minutes before showtime for ticketholders and 15 minutes before showtime for non-ticketholders.  Please contact us at levels@greatnecklibrary.org for more information!

ent_masks_bw 8:00 PM  -  10:30 PM Levels' Summer Musical(s) at Saddle Rock School: TROLL 2: THE MUSICAL PARODY and MANHOLE! MANHOLE! Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Levels' 2015 Summer Musical is actually two, two, TWO musicals in one!


 

The first mini-musical, Manhole! Manhole!, features book, lyrics and direction by Solly Kasab and Zach Lee, and music by Zach Lee, with choreography by Julia Prager-Hessel.  It begins on one fateful day when a boy named Billy falls into an open manhole.  His cries for help draw the attention of many people walking by, including construction workers, military officers and even the President.  But everyone who tries to assist Billy also falls into the manhole.  When things get hopeless, Billy plans to lead the group into the sewers to find an escape. But what, or who, could be lurking in the labyrinth below?  

It’s followed by Troll 2: The Musical Parody, a take-off on the cult classic horror movie Troll 2.  It’s written by members of the Levels Make-a-Musical Workshop and directed by Daisy Korman, with choreography by Molly Racsko.  This musical tells the tale of young Joshua Waits, who joins his family on a trip to the town of NILBOG (spell it backwards!)  He soon realizes the inhabitants of the town are evil vegetarian goblins (NOT trolls) who want to perform “vegimication” on his family and eat them.  The only things that can help Joshua defeat the goblins (NOT trolls) are his dead Grandpa Seth (who’s a ghost) and a double-decker baloney sandwich.

The shows are produced by Peri Litt, with set design by Spencer Berman and Aaron Young, costume design by David Epstein, and lighting design by Aral Soykan.    Both shows are performed by a repertory cast of students representing all five Great Neck secondary schools, including Aryaman Bahri, Spencer Berman, Ricky Cole, Max Cruz, Nicole Cruz, David Epstein, Janaé B. Fouché, Solly Kasab, Daisy Korman, Zach Lee, Ben Lesser, Ishaan Pathak, Julia Prager-Hessel, Molly Racsko, Winston Riggs, Ashley Schlusselberg, Rachel Schlusselberg, Aral Soykan, Berk Soykan, Omeed Tartak, Justin Wooster, Aaron Young and Emma Young.

Admission is FREE. Tickets are intended to guarantee prime seating, and can be requested at the Circulation Desks of all Great Neck Library facilities.  Doors open 45 minutes before showtime for ticketholders and 15 minutes before showtime for non-ticketholders.  Please contact us at levels@greatnecklibrary.org for more information!

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, she is unable to get close to anybody, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings.The Language of Flowers" is a heartbreaking and redemptive novel about the meaning of flowers, the meaning of family, and the meaning of love.
