The Pajama Game
The Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory is a tip-top model of efficiency – so why are things getting so steamy? It could have something to do with how hard new superintendent Sid Sorokin has fallen for Babe Williams, the troublemaking head of the union grievance committee. Sparks really start to fly when a workers’ strike pits management against labor and ignites an outrageous battle of the sexes. With an energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross (Damn Yankees), The Pajama Game is brimming with songs and dances that have become musical theatre standards, including “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.” Warm up your early spring with this Tony Award-winning, fun and fiery, romantic comedy.When:

Tabletop Studio Photography
Interested in selling on Etsy or EBay? Want to create still-life images as the basis for paintings? Need product photos for your website, social media feeds, or promotional materials? Want to create photos of your artwork for an online portfolio or to preserve your child's artwork through digital images? Or perhaps you'd like to create professional-looking greeting cards?Whatever the need, this Tabletop Studio Photography class will take you through the process of using a small, portable tabletop studio "softbox" which we will practice using with both natural window light and simple studio lights.During the first portion of this workshop, we will put together our softboxes and set up a tabletop tripod and small studio lights. We will mount different colored fabrics inside the softbox to create seamless backgrounds for photographing products, artwork, jewelry, flowers or other small items that are under 22" in any dimension. Each participant will be able to take home this entire setup. Once our setup is established, we will use it to photograph a variety of different objects, experimenting with both natural light and studio light conditions. We'll begin with some easy, non-reflective objects and then move on to more challenging shiny objects. After working together on a few of the same objects, you are welcome to photograph your own objects. If you choose not bring your own, there will be plenty of practice items available to photograph.You may use any type of camera you wish for this workshop, including a smart phone camera. If you do bring a DSLR or point-and-shoot camera, please be sure you know how to operate the camera. There won't be much time in class for the instructor to help with adjusting camera settings.At the end of the class, the instructor will demonstrate some basic photo editing techniques that you can use to enhance your images. She will also demonstrate how to drop out the background of an image, expanding the ways you will be able to use your photographs. The formal part of the workshop will end at 1pm, but participants are welcome to enjoy two hours of studio time to continue shooting or practice editing photos.

Amours Contrariées — Tragic Loves: Cantatas of Clérambault & Rameau
The period-instrument ensemble Les Bostonades has been sharing chamber music with New England audiences since 2005. Collaborating regularly with renowned Baroque specialists, the ensemble presents spirited, polished performances. Their playing has been described as “most engaging . . . generous, voluptuous, well delineated,” with “a poignancy of emotion” (Early Music America). An ensemble of flexible instrumentation, Les Bostonades has developed under the direction of Akiko Enoki Sato, an acclaimed harpsichordist who trained in Japan, the U. S. and finally Montreal, where her study of French Baroque music — stage works and music of the French clavecin school — influenced her artistic vision. The ensemble has an abiding interest in bringing to light the music of lesser-known French Baroque composers.
For this program, the performers will be Akiko Sato (director & harpsichord), Sarah Darling (baroque violin), Teddie Hwang (traverso) and Emily Walhout (viola da gamba). They will be joined by American tenor Zachary Wilder, who is recognized internationally on the operatic and concert stages in repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries. He works with many leading ensembles, including Les Arts Florissants, The Boston Early Music Festival, and The Monteverdi Choir & Orchestra. With Les Bostonades, he will perform two much-admired cantatas by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault (d. 1749). These are small dramatic gems inspired by ancient myths, stories of the tremulous hopes, tender joys, and utter despairs of star-crossed lovers: Pyramus and Thisbe (the story adapted for Romeo and Juliet), and Orpheus and Euridice. From Jean-Philippe Rameau, there will be a romantic-pastoral cantata in which an impatient lover awaits “the charming object” of his affection, as well as several pieces for harpsichord, which are charming objects in themselves.When:

Commonwealth Ballet Company: "Beauty and the Beast"
Beauty and the Beast: The Ballet Tale as Old as Time
Once upon a time, a merchant lived with his three daughters ... In this classic tale of true love, when Belle asks her father for a simple rose, the seemingly harmless act of plucking the beautiful flower from a bush during his travels results in a death sentence from The Beast. Belle courageously offers her life in place of her father's, and thus sets the stage for the discovery that true love is based on inner beauty. Commonwealth Ballet Company dancers are joined by a cast of young dance students and guest artists, performing to the music of Respighi. This narrated tale of charity, honor, grace and true love comes to the stage of the Regis College Fine Arts Center.

Learn to Design a 3D-Printed Solar Car
March 24 - May 5, 20186 Saturdays (no class on April 14th) In this 6 week course you will learn a 3D modeling tool in order to design your own prototype solar-powered car. Working within the design constraints of the provided solar panel and solar-powered motor, you can use your imagination to design a unique car of the future. Part of the design process will involve thinking about how best to design a car to meet a set of challenges posed by the instructor. For example, how can you build the fastest possible car? How can you build a car that stays upright around tight curves? How can you build a car that can go over obstacles without tipping over? Once the design is complete, you will learn to prepare your design for a 3D printer. Once printed, you will assemble your car and then test it out to see how well your prototype car meets the design challenges. The course is limited to 10 participants, 14 years or older, and the price includes a $40 materials fee for a solar kit and 3D printing supplies. Computers and software will be supplied. This course is taught by Tinker & Create instructor Doug Tepe who is an experienced 3D printing, game design, and web development instructor.
