Musical to be Performed on Anderson Stage...

     Director Henry MacCarthy has moved the prologue from its original location in ancient Rome and transformed it into a vaudeville style theatre set just before the turn of the 20th century.

MacCarthy's efforts are supported by an array of talented associates, including Christina Smith (music director), Michele Rusinko (choreographer), Andrea Gross (costume designer), Micah J. Maatman (set designer), and senior Michael Rueckert (lighting designer), as well as 20 performers onstage and a small orchestra. Tickets are available at the Gustavus Ticket Center (x7590).

The forum will be held at the St. Peter Community Center's Senior Meeting Hall, from 6 to 8 p.m. It is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Events Complement New Group Show at Arts Center... "Furniture & Fiber" opens on Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Arts Center of Saint Peter (315 S. Minnesota Avenue) and will run through March 30. The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, March 8, 2-4 p.m., for the four artists featured in the exhibition—furniture makers Mark Kreykes, Adam Marti, and Douglas Nimmo (music), and fiber artist Shelley Cords-Swanson.

Cords-Swanson, who has a degree in geography with a specialty in cartography, taught for many years at Minnesota State University, Mankato, in the Geography Department. Her interest in creating quilted maps grew out of her love of map making as she transferred her cartographic skills to a fiber medium.
     Other opportunities to view the exhibition are during Arts Center hours Tuesdays through Sundays, 1-5 p.m., and Thursdays, 1-8 p.m. The Center is closed Mondays. There is no fee and the community is encouraged to attend the showing and the reception.
