Theater Workshop Presents: The Mermaid and the Merrimack
PRESS RELEASE : The Mermaid and the Merrimack makes a splash on the Theater Workshop stage. A present-day fairy-tale set in Newburyport tells the story of a teenage fisherman named Jack who befriends a brave mermaid named Merissa who takes a risk by leaving her deep-sea home to explore the Merrimack River where she hopes to find the cause of pollutants pouring into the sea. They join in their efforts to solve the mystery and secure clean water to save the eco-system. An original script written and directed by Stacey April Fix brings a charming under-sea community of characters to the stage when the mermaid kingdom discovers Merissas connection with humans and her family loyalty is tested. Jack becomes an advocate raising awareness while the adventures ensue with hilarious pirates, a crustacean army in pursuit of the lost mermaid, and a deep-sea courtroom lead by an octopus judge. This is a magical story with a meaningful message for our coastal community that will touch audiences of all ages. Theater Workshop is celebrating 20 years of professional childrens theater, an enrichment program of Workshop Arts Inc., a non-profit foundation. Children from different schools in the surrounding towns are included in this cast. This Workshop Arts program is supported in part by Cultural Council grants from Newbury, Salisbury and Rowley.

The Art of Pairing

Art is all around us, it just depends on what inspires you. What makes your mouth water on a cold bomb cyclone day in Boston might not be appealing at all on a hot July Sunday on the Cape. Just as weather impacts your appreciation of a meal, your choice of beverage can take a meal from good to great, or even from great to extraordinary. The art of pairing is an educational piece where you can learn the key to a successful meal–the passport for a beautiful harmonious marriage between food and drink. We will be serving Tenure Peach Fizz with smokey pulled pork sliders, Garden Punch- a Rosemary Rhubarb Lemonade, with cornbread, and a Coldbrew martini served with Pecan Pie! This event is 21+.
