Heroes With Sharon Kennedy

Thursday, September 11 at 7:00 p.m.

IT WAS FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY! SEPTEMBER 12, 1964 - SEPTEMBER 11, 2014!!!

Heroes is a short saga of Sharon Kennedy’s adventures as she set out to meet some of her idols in the 1960's. Join our favorite local storyteller’s reminiscence of how she crashed the Beatles'  1964 press conference at the old Madison Hotel in Boston at the age of 15, and how she was granted an interview with Martin Luther King in April of 1968.


For the Medford Library performance on September 11, 2014, four or five lucky people will tell their own five minute stories about some encounter (or wishful encounter or strong memory) having to do with either the Beatles or Martin Luther King.

To become one of those telling a story that night you need to contact Sharon at sharon@sharonkennedy.com and either write up your story for her or meet her in person to try it out. Remember there are only 4-5 slots and your story can only be five minutes long.

This program is presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library

Introduction to Playwriting : An 8 week course in writing for the stage With Bill Doncaster

Mondays, September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 20, 27 and November 3 at 7:00 p.m.

This intensive 8-week course will cover the basics of writing for live theater, from correct format to story construction with a focus on character and rich dialogue, culminating in a live staged reading performance of a finished 10-minute play.

During the course, participants will read plays and discuss the short play format, and (more importantly) read, share and revise their work through a peer review format.  Class discussions will include the production process – how directors, actors and designers approach a script – as well as Aristotle’s Poetics, and resources for seeking production in short play festivals.

The course is open to anyone, high school senior or older, with an interest in writing for stage.  Writers of other genres (fiction, non-fiction) with an interest in enhancing their use of dialogue in storytelling are also encouraged to participate.

To sign up, call the Information Desk at (781) 395-7950

Funded by The Medford Arts Council.

About the instructor:  Bill Doncaster is a playwright, director and producer, and the co-founder of Stickball Productions.  His short plays have been performed in festivals in Boston, New York, Chicago, Florida and beyond.  His adaptation of George V. Higgins’ classic crime novel The Friends of Eddie Coyle sold out OBERON, the second stage of the American Repertory Theater, and was a Boston Globe “critics pick.”  It was later reprised as part of the 2012 Emerging America Festival, a series of “groundbreaking performance by American artists” produced by ART, the Huntington Theater and the ICA.  He studied script writing at Emerson College (BFA) and Lesley University (MFA).

the “soundtrack” of the Italian Risorgimento.Recent scholarship, inspired by the 2011 150th Anniversary of Italian Unity and Verdi’s

Francesco Castellano is a professional linguist and a music lover. He is an opera enthusiast who has lectured on music in general and especially opera.   He has lectured here on Verdi and presented the opera Cristoforo Colombo by Alberto Franchetti.

Introduction to Playwriting : An 8 week course in writing for the stage With Bill Doncaster

Mondays, September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 20, 27 and November 3 at 7:00 p.m.

This intensive 8-week course will cover the basics of writing for live theater, from correct format to story construction with a focus on character and rich dialogue, culminating in a live staged reading performance of a finished 10-minute play.

During the course, participants will read plays and discuss the short play format, and (more importantly) read, share and revise their work through a peer review format.  Class discussions will include the production process – how directors, actors and designers approach a script – as well as Aristotle’s Poetics, and resources for seeking production in short play festivals.

The course is open to anyone, high school senior or older, with an interest in writing for stage.  Writers of other genres (fiction, non-fiction) with an interest in enhancing their use of dialogue in storytelling are also encouraged to participate.

To sign up, call the Information Desk at (781) 395-7950

Funded by The Medford Arts Council.

About the instructor:  Bill Doncaster is a playwright, director and producer, and the co-founder of Stickball Productions.  His short plays have been performed in festivals in Boston, New York, Chicago, Florida and beyond.  His adaptation of George V. Higgins’ classic crime novel The Friends of Eddie Coyle sold out OBERON, the second stage of the American Repertory Theater, and was a Boston Globe “critics pick.”  It was later reprised as part of the 2012 Emerging America Festival, a series of “groundbreaking performance by American artists” produced by ART, the Huntington Theater and the ICA.  He studied script writing at Emerson College (BFA) and Lesley University (MFA).

A Lecture by Dee Morris

Tuesday, December 2 at 7:00 p.m.

Join author Dee Morris as she navigates the complex history of Boston’s spiritualist movement in this lecture based

on her new book. Spiritualism flourished in Boston from the first rumblings of the Civil War until the early twentieth century. Numerous clairvoyants claimed to bring messages from beyond the grave at séances and public meetings. While many earnestly believed in the movement, there were those who took advantage of naïve Bostonians. Determined to expose charlatans, world-renowned magician Harry Houdini declared the famous medium and Bostonian Mina “Margery” Crandon a fake.

Dee Morris is a local historian and author of Medford : A Short History.  Her new book on spiritualism will be published by History Press in September 2014.

Presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.
