“Is Happiness the Goal of Life?” Program

“The Winter’s Tale” at The Drama Group

In “Is Happiness the Goal of Life?” Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader, Philadelphia Ethical Society explores the nature of happiness from Aristotle to contemporary self-help books, 11 a.m., Sunday, November 5, 1906 S. Rittenhouse Square. Referencing 19th century agnostic, Robert Ingersoll, who proclaimed, “Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so,” Taft-Morales considers the questions: Is he correct? How does this fit in with Ethical Humanism’s emphasis on social justice? Can it support our version of the golden rule, where we bring out the best in others and thus in ourselves? All are welcome to the program and following coffee hour and dialogue. For info, contact the Society at office@phillyethics.org or 215-735-3456 or visit www.phillyethics.org. Free street parking by permit available on arrival.

Interfaith Family Shabbat with Rabbi Robyn Frisch – “What I’ve Learned from Working with Interfaith Couples and Families” Interfaith couples and families make up a large percentage of the liberal Jewish community, and growing up in an interfaith family is now the norm. In Rabbi Robyn Frisch’s four-and-a-half years working as the Director of InterfaithFamily/Philadelphia, she’s worked with numerous interfaith couples and families. She’ll share some of the lessons that she’s learned while accompanying people in interfaith relationships on their journeys, as well as some of the blessings and challenges that many of them face. She’ll also talk about why she sees interfaith couples and families not as a threat to Jewish continuity, but rather as an opportunity for Judaism to survive and thrive. Whether you yourself are in an interfaith relationship or someone close to you is, or you want to have a better understanding of interfaith relationships and how the Jewish community can respond, attend this program Friday, November 10 at 8 p.m. Main Line Reform Temple is located at 410 Montgomery Ave., Wynnewood, PA 19096, 610-649-7800.

TO

END ALZHEIMER’S

Continued from front page

Walk” – and was instrumental in growing the walk until it peaked at number one among all the Walk to End Alzheimer’s events in the nation in both funds raised and number of walkers. “The Philadelphia Walk to End Alzheimer’s became the first one in the country to raise one-and-a half million dollars and in 2014, we had ten thousand walkers for the first time,” said Campbell. “This year, we anticipate raising at least onepoint-seven million dollars.” Another new element to this year’s walk will be added to the Promise Garden Ceremony – a signature part of every Walk to End Alzheimer’s that features fabric pinwheel flowers in colors representing each walker’s connection to Alzheimer’s or a related disorder. Typically, during the ceremony, walk participants who hold a blue flower have the disease or another dementia, while those carrying a yellow flower are caring for someone living with dementia. A purple flower indicates the person holding it has lost someone to Alzheimer’s, and walkers holding an orange flower may not necessarily have a connection to dementia, but support the Alzheimer’s Association cause. “This year, though, we have added a new, single white flower to be held by a child,” said Kathryn DiSalvo, senior director special events for the chapter. “Alzheimer’s is a fatal, degenerative brain disease with no cure or treatment or way to prevent it. Because no one survives Alzheimer’s, the child and the white flower will symbolize Alzheimer’s first survivor.” News anchors and reporters from longtime television presenting sponsor, FOX 29 will emcee the pre-walk program, which will include live music by 60s and 70s band, Club Phred and other entertainment. Free Walk to End Alzheimer’s registration and Walk day volunteer sign-up are available at www.alz.org/WALK or the Chapter’s toll-free 24/7 Helpline, 800-272-3900 for anyone wishing to join or start a team with family, friends or coworkers. As many as 500 Walk day volunteers are needed. Early-Bird Check-In: Walkers who would like to bypass the registration lines on walk day, have two opportunities to register and turn in their fundraising dollars at these early-bird check-in events: • November 2 at the Canvas Valley Forge Corporate Office in the King of Prussia Mall, 160 Gulph Road next to the Bonefish Grill entrance in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, from 5:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. • November 6 at BAYADA Home Health Corporate Offices 4300 Haddonfield Road, Pennsauken Township, New Jersey from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. “This is a great opportunity to meet and greet fellow walkers, grab some light refreshments, submit the funds you and your team have raised, pick up your wristbands, and then, individual walkers who have raised at least $100, can pick up their t-shirts early too,” said Amanda Alderfer, the chapter’s Pennsylvania walk and athletic events coordinator. “Then you won’t have to stand in any registration lines at all on the day of the walk. You’ll be able to head straight to the promise garden flower tent to pick up your flower and join the crowd on Citizens Bank Way.” Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia, is the country’s sixth-leading cause of death. It is the only one among the top 10 that has no cure, can’t be prevented, or even slowed. Alzheimer’s affects more than five million people in the United States, including at least 200,000 who have younger-onset Alzheimer’s and have not yet reached the age of 65. The disease is also the nation’s most expensive—costing the U.S. $236 billion in 2016. Without a major medical breakthrough, the Alzheimer's Association projects by 2050, these costs will increase at least 400 percent and the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s will nearly triple. The Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Citizens Bank Park is the final one of the season. The Delaware Valley Chapter has already hosted several other Walk to End Alzheimer’s events throughout the tri-state region including, Rehoboth and Wilmington in Delaware; Atlantic City and Millville, New Jersey, and in Pennsylvania, Bethlehem and Reading. Genesis HealthCare is presenting sponsor of the Delaware Valley Chapter’s 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s series of events.

the War for Independence on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 7 p.m. till 9 p.m. at Fort Mifflin on the Delaware. Following the American victory at Saratoga and the courageous defense of the Delaware River at Fort Mifflin in the fall of 1777, the French solidified their relationship with the fledgling United States by signing the Treaty of Amity and Commerce and Treaty of Alliance in February, 1778. From that point through the British surrender at Yorktown the French provided supplies, arms, ammunition, financial and naval support to the young nation. It has been concluded that without the support of the French the outcome of the war might have been very different. Jefferson and Lafayette went on to develop an abiding friendship following the Revolution during Jefferson’s time in Paris. Their engaging conversation will conclude with an opportunity for attendees to discuss politics, the Declaration of Independence and foreign relations with these most distinguished gentlemen at an informal reception with complimentary light refreshments. Musket and cannon demonstrations will add a little fire power to this “revolutionary” event! This special evening celebrates the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail at its central location, Fort Mifflin. This historic route was traveled by French and American forces on the way to Yorktown in 1781. Purchase your tickets (Adults $20, Seniors, Veterans & Students 12 and under $10, Members of Fort Mifflin on the Delaware FREE) to this historic experience online (https://fortmifflin.ticketleap.com) to reserve your seat. Members should call the office to reserve, 215-685-4167.

he Wayne Art Center’s “2017 Fall Members’ Exhibition” is on view from October 15 through November 18, 2017 in the Davenport Gallery. The exhibition was juried by Scott Noel, artist and PAFA professor of the Certificate/BFA and MFA programs. Noel selected 98 works from 195 that are featured by Wayne Art Center current members and include all mediums. Awards were announced during the opening artist reception on Sunday, October 15. Award winners included Gail Fox, David Rozek, Sarah Dubois, Laura Ducceshi, Barbara Machler, Carol Magner, Rebecca Bien, Susan O’Hanlon and John Cargill, Barbara Berry, Deirdre Young, Georganna Lenssen, Nancy Brenner, Scott Wayak, and Corinne M. Dieterle. Over $1,500 was given out in awards. Scott Noel will conduct a workshop “Drawing & Painting the Figure” on November 11 and 12. Registration is still available at www.wayneart.org. In addition, Noel will give a juror’s talk on Saturday, November 11 at 4 p.m. where he will discuss his jurying process and how he selected the exhibition works and award winners. Fall 2016, Noel curated The Nude, Mirror of Desire and juried The Nude Figure at Wayne Art Center. In the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery, “Imprint & Mark: The Language of Perception with Roger Chavez, Mashiul Chowdhury and Georganna Lenssen” is on display until November 18. Former students of Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, all three artists use subject matter as a vehicle or point of departure for their work. Exploring essence, form and gesture, the artists draw upon the repositories of their experiences to inform their subjects with reflection of memories of times and places. A sense of ambiguity and richly complex surface qualities unifies the body of work, which stimulates the viewer’s imagination to roam the endless possibilities of meaning and intent. The artists will present a Gallery Talk on Thursday, November 2 at 6:30 p.m. In addition, Georganna Lenssen and Michaud Chowdhury will teach a workshop, “Imprint and Mark” on Saturday, November 4 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Visit www.wayneart.org for info or to register. “Reflections of Betty Newitt” features over forty years of watercolor paintings. Newitt has been a long time student and member of Wayne Art Center. Influenced and trained by prominent local artists, Betty strived for strong light effects. In viewing her collection of 31 watercolors on display, one can observe her intricate style and use of color among a variety of subjects she enjoyed capturing on canvas. The Wayne Art Center is located at 413 Maplewood Avenue in Wayne.

ARTS & CULTURE

East Coast Premiere of “The Manor” Continued from front page

A two-act play by Kathrine Bates, directed by Sam Barrett ONLY 7 ES ORMANC F R E P SEATING LIMITED

The “Stage” is Chester County’s Greystone Hall – the audience and cast move in and out of the grand and intimate rooms of the mansion.

November 2 - 12 • Evening & Matinee Performances $60pp • Advance Tickets Required: www.colonialplayhouse.net/the-manor Inspired by real events, “The Manor” has previously had fifteen years of performances at the Greystone Manor in Beverly Hills where it all occurred.

Info: www.greystonehall.com • www.facebook.com/greystonehall

performances at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, November 2 and 9, on Fridays November 3 and 10; and matinee performances at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 4, and Sundays, November 5 and 12. Both evening and matinee performances are $60 per person, including light refreshments at the intermission. Seating is limited. Purchase tickets online at www.colonialplayhouse.net/the-manor/. Money, marriage, murder and madness played out in a mansion—all are part and parcel of “The Manor,” a family saga based on real events. Instead of a proscenium stage or a stationary theater-in-the-round set-up, the audience follows members of the cast in designated groupings in and out of the mansion’s stately rooms where multiple scenes of the play are performed in coordinated rotations. The idea for the play was conceived in tandem with the idea of it being performed at the Greystone Colonial Playhouse’s twelve-member cast of the upcoming Mansion in Beverly Hills on the production of “The Manor” at Greystone Hall in West very site where the real life Chester. See performaances November 2 - November 12. drama occurred. Los Angeles audiences have been enjoying this in situ play over the past fifteen years, often returning back to see it again with guests. Inspired by real life events, the play is a fictionalized account of the “triumphs and tribulations” of the fabulously wealthy Edward Doheny family renamed in the story as the “MacAlisters.” Doheny (1856-1935) drilled the first successful oil well in Los Angeles, starting the oil boom of the early 1900s in Southern California. In 1928, Oil tycoon and philanthropist Doheny was accused of bribing Albert Fall, the U.S. Secretary of the Interior in exchange for obtaining a lease 32,000 acres of federal land in California. His “gift” to Fall became a part of the infamous Teapot Dome scandal that plagued President Warren Harding administration; his son Ned and a trusted employee who together delivered the money in cash were also indicted. Although Secretary Fall was convicted of accepting a bribe, Doheny was ultimately acquitted. In its wake, however, a terrible tragedy took place in grandiose mansion he built and gifted to Ned. In the end the family patriarch died an invalid and recluse. The mansion – a symbol of wealth, power and political intrigue – is the star of the show. The plot and grand setting the likes of “Downton Abby” and as timely as today’s news and politics – add up to a perfect recipe for a theatrical feast. Nestled on a hillside above Sunset Boulevard, the Los Angeles Tudor Revival style Greystone Mansion was designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann and completed in 1928. With the blessing of playwright Kathrine Bates, “The Manor” is being transplanted and presented in another grandiose mansion— the English Renaissance-style Greystone Hall designed by Philadelphia architect Charles Barton Keen and built in 1907 for P.M. Sharples, West Chester inventor, industrialist and philanthropist. In 2015 Greystone Hall was the location site and “stand in” for its Los Angeles namesake for the filming of a TV docudrama for the Investigation Discovery Channel. The mansion setting in both locations is centerpiece of the story. The Colonial Playhouse whose home stage is located at Arden, PA, in Delaware County, is a community theater established in 1940. It has a long tradition of offering a variety of fine theatrical programs. This year’s shows include Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” Garson Kanin’s “Born Yesterday” and Tom Firth’s “Calendar Girls.” Sam Barrett, Dramatic Director of Colonial Playhouse, has immersed herself in directing this transplanted production of “The Manor” – an extraordinary and logistically challenging play – with exceptional dedication and passion Although Greystone Hall is celebrating its 25th anniversary as Chester County’s most elegant conference and reception venue and is rented for private events, it is not generally open to the public. It remains a private family residence of the Jerrehian family, its owners for the past 75 years. A goal of both the Colonial Playhouse and Greystone Hall is that future performances of the play will become a local theatrical tradition as the play has become in LA.

YOUNG PERFORMERS LEARN ABOUT D E A F -B L I N D C O M M U N I T Y Continued from front page

During the workshop, Lockard passed around the manipulatives that replicate a deaf-blind environment, giving the cast a better sense of Keller’s world. Lockard communicated with students using sign language in addition to speaking aloud. Additionally, Lockard explained both Sign Language and Tactile Sign, allowing students the opportunity to “get the feel” for these languages. Lockard invited a discussion about communication in general and how essential it is to human life. “The students involved in the workshop were eager to learn more about what Helen Keller experienced so that they can portray such important historical figures with accuracy, sensitivity, and understanding,” said Regn. Performance dates for “The Miracle Worker” are: Friday, December 8 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, December 9 at 3 p.m.; and Sunday, December 10 at 3 p.m. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 13 and can be purchased at www.wolfperformingartscenter.org or 610-642-0233.

he 2017 Festival of Music and the Arts at The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill on the weekend of November 3-5 will feature art, drama and music that take as their subject the men, women and children whose lives have been tragically altered or cut short by gun violence. The Festival will open with an art exhibition entitled “Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence” on Friday night at 6 p.m., continue with a Readers’ Theater production of 26 Pebbles on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., and conclude with a performance of Mozart’s Requiem, James MacMillan’s A Child’s Prayer, and the premiere of Lewis Spratlan’s Unspoken Words by the church’s Gallery Choir on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. At each event, a free-will offering will be taken in support of Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, a faithbased movement committed to the prevention of gun violence. Telling just some of the stories of the lives lived by the victims of gun violence is the goal of “Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence.” For this important project twenty-five artists were paired with families or friends of victims in Philadelphia. The portraits created illuminate those precious lives to encourage the viewer to focus beyond the statistics and see the individuals and the poignant cost of gun violence. The opening on November 3 at 6 p.m. will include a reception and 7:30 p.m. program featuring Senator Art Haywood and The Healing Presence Singers. The exhibition will be on view throughout the month of November from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. New York actor Eric Ulloa wrote 26 Pebbles in response to the unthinkable deaths by gun violence of 20 children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Ulloa found himself so consumed by this tragedy that he went to Newtown to speak with residents of the town about what life was like there both before and after that life-changing morning. Six members of the church’s congregation will portray 21 residents of Newtown, all of whom were profoundly affected by the shootings and their aftermath. This moving and deeply personal play explores the themes of family, community and what it is like to be thrust tragically into the spotlight. The reading will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 4. On Sunday, November 5, at 4 p.m., the PCCH Gallery Choir and soloists will be joined by the Prometheus Chamber Orchestra in a performance of three pieces. Mozart’s Requiem will be offered as a prayer for the eternal rest of victims and as a comfort for those left behind. A Child’s Prayer, by Scottish composer James MacMillan, was written in response to Britain’s worst mass shooting in 1996 which left 16 students dead at a primary school in Dunblaine, Scotland. Unspoken Words, by Pulitzer Prize winning composer Lewis Spratlan with text by Paul Kane, is a raw, bold, impassioned response to the gun violence epidemic in our country and was commissioned by the church for this Festival. The Memorial to the Lost, first installed on the lawn of The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill in February of 2013, will occupy the lawn again during the Festival and continue until the end of November. A project of Heeding God’s Call to End Gun Violence, the memorial remembers on tee shirts that double for tombstones the names, ages and death dates of all who have lost their lives to gun violence in Philadelphia in 2017. All events will take place at The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill, 8855 Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia. For info call 215-247-8855 or visit www.chestnuthillpres.org.

ld Academy Players presents FAST GIRLS, the hilarious comedy written by Diana Amsterdam. Directed by Sarah Labov and produced by Terri Bateman, Michelle Moscicki, and the dear, late beloved Christopher P. McCollum. Show dates are November 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, & 19, 2017; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. A precursor to Sex and the City, the comedy FAST GIRLS (which won the Montreal equivalent of a Tony Award (in French)), is a buddy story about two single women during the late eighties, when the sexual revolution hit a definite snag. Lucy Lewis loves men, being single, and playing the field; she is a successful career woman and a “fast girl.” Her neighbor Abigail McBride seeks a suitable husband and is definitely desperate, declaring that she realized, too late, that “high standards and loneliness are one and the same thing.” Lucy’s mother Mitzi comes to town to convince Lucy that she has to settle down before it’s too late. She sends over Lucy’s ex-boyfriend Sidney to seal the deal. Lucy pretends to cook for Sidney and be a “good girl” to show him how ridiculous it is; but the charade backfires. A special Autumn Open House performance of FAST GIRLS will be held on Sunday, November 5 at 4 p.m. This event is perfect for first-time attendees to the theater and friends. Members of Old Academy Players will share a brief history of the theatre and its famous members Grace Kelly and Robert Prosky. The event is $20 per person and includes light refreshments pre-show beginning at 3 p.m. and a post-show 10-minute Question and Answer session with the actors. Come and meet the talented, award-winning playwright Diana Amsterdam on opening night, November 3, for a Question and Answer session. Amsterdam’s plays have been produced in New York, London, Berlin, Montreal, Los Angeles and many American cities and have been reviewed by the New York Times and Washington Post. Her newest play THE DODGERS opened in Los Angeles in January 2016. She is currently writing a commission for Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company in Houston, TX. She is a New York State Council on the Arts grant recipient and was selected for HBO’s Stage to Screen series. She won the BBC American Radio Play Contest leading to three radio play commissions from BBC Radio 4. Her screenplay won 1st Prize in NYWIFT’s 25th Anniversary Screenplay Contest. The stellar cast members are Eric Rupp as Sidney Epstein, Jennifer Sivers/Roberts as Abigail McBride, Maggie Cummings as Lucy Lewis, Susan Lonker as Mitzi Lewis and Tom England as Joe Malone. Features adult themes – not recommended for children. Old Academy Players, a member of the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, is a non-profit community theater located at 3544 Indian Queen Lane in East Falls (Philadelphia). Constructed in 1819, the Old Academy building has been the OAP home since 1932. Old Academy welcomes groups! If you have 15 or more in your party, you can take advantage of group discount pricing. Parking for all performances is free. Individual tickets are $20 each. Tickets may now be purchased online at www.oldacademyplayers.org. Tickets may also be reserved by calling 215-843-1109.
