The Edge Ensemble Theatre Company is excited to be doing its part in keeping the Arts alive in these dark times by entering the new world of digital theatre! Out of an abundance of caution, The Edge has cancelled all live performances for the remainder of 2020. But a crisis is also an opportunity.  And The Edge is seizing this opportunity to rethink how theatre can be presented in a time of lockdown and isolation. Three virtual productions are planned for the fall.

  • The first production is Mark Twain’s The Diaries of Adam and Eve, which will air on September 20-October 10.
  • The second production will air October 11-31, to coincide with Halloween, will be Spooky Tales of Edgar Allan Poe, including The Premature Burial (read by Damien Licata), The Murders in the Rue Morgue (adapted and directed by Catherine Behrens), Annabel Lee (read by Sherman Morrison), The Tell Tale Heart (read by Kim Dupuis), and The Bells (read by the company).
  • The third production, to air November 1-30, is Here It Is, an original play written and acted by Cynthia and Jonathan Austin.

All three productions will be free on YouTube, and a $400 gift card to the Monadnock Food Co-Op will be raffled off on the closing night of each production. Raffle tickets are $5.00 and may be purchased by mailing a check to The Edge Ensemble, P.O. Box 1815, Keene, NH 03431. Include your name and contact information for the drawing. Tickets may also be bought online through PayPal for $5.42 (to include the servicing fee); go to The Edge’s website, Money must be received a week before the drawing. You may buy as many tickets as you wish.

The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) invites creators of all ages to design and build original LEGO sculptures and display them at the Museum in BMAC’s 13th Annual LEGO Contest & Exhibit, taking place November 13 through 16.

This year’s LEGO Contest & Exhibit blends virtual events with a socially distanced in-person exhibition. On Wednesday, November 4th, “LEGO Masters” finalist and brick artist Jessica “Ragzy” Ewud presents a pair of LEGO workshops via Zoom, with a session for ages 9-14 from 1 to 2 p.m. and another for ages 4-8 from 3 to 4 p.m. Ragzy will give participants a “challenge build” in which they have 30 minutes to create a LEGO piece based on a prompt. She will conclude by offering an expert “brick tip” to participants. Admission is $35, and registration is required. Because the event is virtual, participation is open to children ages 4-14 anywhere in the world.

LEGO Contest & Exhibit entries must be delivered to BMAC on Monday, November 9, 3-7 p.m., or Tuesday, November 10, 3-7 p.m. The online entry form must be submitted before dropoff, including a $5 entry fee. Contest guidelines and entry forms are available at Participants may call BMAC at 802-257-0124, ext. 101, with any questions.

BMAC will display every entry submitted to the contest. The LEGO creations will be on view from Friday, November 13, to Monday, November 16, 10-4 daily. Admission to BMAC is pay-as-you-wish, with advance registration of parties available at Walk-ins are also accepted. Masks and social distancing are required.

The Awards Ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 14, at 5 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live. A panel of judges will award prizes based on creativity and craftsmanship in six age groups: preschool, grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, adult, and adult/child collaborations. Other prizes will be awarded at the judges’ discretion. Every contestant will receive a personalized certificate of participation.

Entries from past years have included a replica of BMAC, an amusement park, a model of Brattleboro’s Harris Hill ski jump, and a working pinball machine. “One thing we want to emphasize,” says BMAC Director Danny Lichtenfeld, “is that, although it’s a contest, no one is really focused on the competition. This is all about celebrating creativity and having fun.”
