Getting into the Christmas spirit At one of Mr. and Mrs. C’s famous parties last weekend, I tried Pinnacle Whipped Cream Flavor Vodka. It’s really weird, I’m not going to lie. But we mixed it with cranberry fizzy soda and it took the sweet edge off. Bring it to your next holiday party simply for the novelty factor. After an evening of sweet cocktails, I needed to (wo)man up and put on a happy face to meet the boyfriend’s sister. I am not an antique shopping kind of girl. When the boyfriend’s mom asked me to go with them, I was looking forward to it like I looked forward to my root canal last year. But it’s Christmastime, so I laced up my tennis shoes and gave myself a pep talk. I was ready for a day of girly

shopping and it was going to be fun. Within the first 10 minutes of being in the store, they told me they found the perfect thing. As I turned my head, I saw the magical twinkle of sterling silver. It was a Tiffany & Co. bracelet staring back at me. My mouth dropped. Every girl — even this girl — loves Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Boys who are still looking for a gift for your wife/girlfriend, you simply can’t go wrong with it. It’s timeless jewelry that’s pricey but not to-

art scene. Brantner also happened to get his start in a different medium. “I started out painting in college,” he explained. “When I left college, I worked in Washington, D.C., at the Phillips Collection. After a year with that, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. There’s no telling why but I just started getting interested in pottery. I took books out of the library and read a lot about pottery.” Brantner wanted to get some experience with the art form, and when he was looking at moving to North Carolina, a friend pointed him in the direction of Seagrove and into the shop of Dirtworks Pottery, where he became an apprentice for a year. “(Seagrove is) an art-

ist community,” he said. “There are about 125 potters in 50 square miles. I stayed in town and worked in several different stores over the next two years.” What he was able to get out of Seagrove was a full list of connections and artists who were very willing to collaborate. “I really enjoy collaborating with other potters. The art really lends itself to it. It’s very rare to hear about a potter who works by himself,” he said. Brantner has since learned to develop his own voice and emphasize his work on form and lines. His work can be seen at a number of galleries, including The Village Artisans Gallery and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. Area residents can get a first-hand look at Brantner’s pottery during his open house this weekend.

tally out of the budget. My bracelet was only $22. Merry Christmas to me. The thrill of the bracelet find carried me through the next four hours of shopping, and I still can’t stop staring at it on my wrist. The question around the office is, “Is it really real?” Listen, people, to me, it’s real — it’s heavy, it looks authentic, and anyone who says otherwise gets a stern look until they promptly shut up. So, my dear friends, go antiquing this Christmas season. You never know what you’re going to find. If you’re also into the finer things in life, check out Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s performance of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” this weekend. It’s at the Hershey Theatre

Saturday and Sunday, and the music will be provided by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. I don’t know about you, but I get tired just watching these dancers. They just move their feet so ding dang fast! Either way, the performance is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit. And speaking of Christmas spirit, next week I’ll be doing my good deed of the holiday season by wrapping gifts at the Capital City Mall. For a donation to United Cerebral Palsy, you can make fun of my heinous wrapping skills, and, if you’re nice, I’ll even give you a bow. We’ll be across from Old Navy from 7-10 p.m. on Dec. 20. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Happy New Year’s! Well, not quite, but it is time to start planning for your New Year’s celebration. I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve; it always carried so much pressure to have fun. I guess part of the problem is not that New Year’s Eve is not fun (although, I think it is one of the most bittersweet holidays), it’s that I was never sure what to do to make it fun! So, for those of you who are like me, here is a list of some fun ways to ring in 2011: • Host, or go to, a party. Some of my favorite New Year’s Eves were spent with small groups of friends, chatting and watching the great “Year in Review” specials that are on every

station. • If you like roses, wrenches, goats or strawberries, then you live in the right area. These items are dropped at midnight in several local and neighboring towns. Check out a full roundup of all the area New Year’s Eve celebrations in the Dec. 30 issue of Alive. Who needs a crowded Times Square and Waterford Crystal ball? • You could always do dinner, drinks and dancing with that special someone. This year, I’m taking my sister! Make sure you make your reservations now, though. The Green Room right here in Carlisle is offering a three-course Prix Fixe Menu for $60 per person (including tax and gratuity).

At one of Mr. and Mrs. C’s famous parties last weekend, I tried Pinnacle Whipped Cream Flavor Vodka. It’s really weird, I’m not going to lie. But we mixed it with cranberry fizzy soda and it took the sweet edge off. Bring it to your next holiday party simply for the novelty factor. After an evening of sweet cocktails, I needed to (wo)man up and put on a happy face to meet the boyfriend’s sister. I am not an antique shopping kind of girl. When the boyfriend’s mom asked me to go with them, I was looking forward to it like I looked forward to my root canal last year. But it’s Christmastime, so I laced up my tennis shoes and gave myself a pep talk. I was ready for a day of girly

shopping and it was going to be fun. Within the first 10 minutes of being in the store, they told me they found the perfect thing. As I turned my head, I saw the magical twinkle of sterling silver. It was a Tiffany & Co. bracelet staring back at me. My mouth dropped. Every girl — even this girl — loves Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Boys who are still looking for a gift for your wife/girlfriend, you simply can’t go wrong with it. It’s timeless jewelry that’s pricey but not to-

tally out of the budget. My bracelet was only $22. Merry Christmas to me. The thrill of the bracelet find carried me through the next four hours of shopping, and I still can’t stop staring at it on my wrist. The question around the office is, “Is it really real?” Listen, people, to me, it’s real — it’s heavy, it looks authentic, and anyone who says otherwise gets a stern look until they promptly shut up. So, my dear friends, go antiquing this Christmas season. You never know what you’re going to find. If you’re also into the finer things in life, check out Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s performance of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” this weekend. It’s at the Hershey Theatre

Saturday

Saturday and Sunday, and the music will be provided by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. I don’t know about you, but I get tired just watching these dancers. They just move their feet so ding dang fast! Either way, the performance is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit. And speaking of Christmas spirit, next week I’ll be doing my good deed of the holiday season by wrapping gifts at the Capital City Mall. For a donation to United Cerebral Palsy, you can make fun of my heinous wrapping skills, and, if you’re nice, I’ll even give you a bow. We’ll be across from Old Navy from 7-10 p.m. on Dec. 20. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

ist community,” he said. “There are about 125 potters in 50 square miles. I stayed in town and worked in several different stores over the next two years.” What he was able to get out of Seagrove was a full list of connections and artists who were very willing to collaborate. “I really enjoy collaborating with other potters. The art really lends itself to it. It’s very rare to hear about a potter who works by himself,” he said. Brantner has since learned to develop his own voice and emphasize his work on form and lines. His work can be seen at a number of galleries, including The Village Artisans Gallery and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. Area residents can get a first-hand look at Brantner’s pottery during his open house this weekend.

Brantner also happened to get his start in a different medium. “I started out painting in college,” he explained. “When I left college, I worked in Washington, D.C., at the Phillips Collection. After a year with that, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. There’s no telling why but I just started getting interested in pottery. I took books out of the library and read a lot about pottery.” Brantner wanted to get some experience with the art form, and when he was looking at moving to North Carolina, a friend pointed him in the direction of Seagrove and into the shop of Dirtworks Pottery, where he became an apprentice for a year. “(Seagrove is) an art-

5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Happy New Year’s! Well, not quite, but it is time to start planning for your New Year’s celebration. I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve; it always carried so much pressure to have fun. I guess part of the problem is not that New Year’s Eve is not fun (although, I think it is one of the most bittersweet holidays), it’s that I was never sure what to do to make it fun! So, for those of you who are like me, here is a list of some fun ways to ring in 2011: • Host, or go to, a party. Some of my favorite New Year’s Eves were spent with small groups of friends, chatting and watching the great “Year in Review” specials that are on every

station. • If you like roses, wrenches, goats or strawberries, then you live in the right area. These items are dropped at midnight in several local and neighboring towns. Check out a full roundup of all the area New Year’s Eve celebrations in the Dec. 30 issue of Alive. Who needs a crowded Times Square and Waterford Crystal ball? • You could always do dinner, drinks and dancing with that special someone. This year, I’m taking my sister! Make sure you make your reservations now, though. The Green Room right here in Carlisle is offering a three-course Prix Fixe Menu for $60 per person (including tax and gratuity).

Boiling Springs potter keeps work local Love of area theater not just academic Kurt Brantner uses almost all local material for his pieces. ■■

Kurt Brantner isn’t all that interested in decorating. The Boiling Springs artist likes the look of antiquity — solid, if worn, pieces with strong lines. It certainly helps that with his work as a potter, much of those features stand out simply by following the regular process for creating a piece. “I’m not a decorator — I’m basically a very traditional potter,” Brantner said. “I like to really let the kiln decorate and glaze the pots. There’s a certain atmosphere to them. The (firewood) kiln imparts texture and color to

of pots that he’s built up over the last few months. Many of those pots are completely local — not just because they are made by a Boiling Springs native, but also because almost all of the materials used to make the pottery are from around the area. Brantner digs his own clay, mixing and stretching it until it’s usable on the pottery wheel. The artist also finishes it off by using local firewood for his kiln. “I keep it very local,” he said. “I really enjoy that. There’s something about using local materials and turning out a product. I make pots based on what I have, not search for material to buy for a pot.”

The story of the ill-fated love between a barker (a person who attempts to attract patrons to entertainment events) and an innocent young woman, human error and redemption is based on “Lilliom,” by the playwright Ferenc Molnar, and contains such wonderful songs as “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” “When the Children Are Asleep” and “When You Walk Through a Storm.” Edward R.

College students may be on break already, but it won’t be long before they’re back on campus — and acting up a storm. Several area colleges and universities have active theater departments, which not only teach students the theory of acting, directing and the technical aspects of stage, but put on diverse and sophisticated productions — ranging from musicals to comedies to often lesser-known dramas. The latter description applies to the next production of Dickinson College’s Department of Theater and Dance — “The Caucasian Chalk Circle,” by German playwright Bertolt Brecht. Based on a Chinese parable, the play is both a dramatic and often-comic tale of one woman’s efforts to protect a child during the turmoil of war. “Brecht’s play challenges theatrical conventions and political ideas,” says Associate Professor of Theater Dr. Karen Lordi-Kirkham. The focus of the Dickinson theater department is on teaching the art of theater and dance in a liberal arts setting. In that spirit, classes and productions are open to the entire student body. The department also sponsors two clubs, The Mermaid Players and Dance Theatre Group, which are co-curricular and have primary faculty involvement. “We have used people

Dickinson does a musical every other year, and Shakespeare or another classic in the “off year.” “The Caucasian Chalk Circle” will be staged at 8 p.m. March 4, 5, 7 and 8 in Mathers Theater in Holland Union Building. Tickets are $5, but $3 for students with advance purchase. Following less than a month later is “Spring Repertory at The Cubiclo,” which presents two plays highlighting the talents of senior theater majors. “Spring Repertory” will be staged at 8 p.m. April 1; 2 and 8 p.m. April 2; and 2 p.m. April 3 on the second floor of Carlisle Theatre, 44 W. High St., Carlisle. All performances are free.

Messiah redefines classic “Classic” in theater means more than the Bard or Brecht. Messiah College’s Theater Department is presenting one of the classics of the musical theater world — Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel” — next term. The story of the ill-fated love between a barker (a person who attempts to attract patrons to entertainment events) and an innocent young woman, human error and redemption is based on “Lilliom,” by the playwright Ferenc Molnar, and contains such wonderful songs as “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” “When the Children Are Asleep” and “When You Walk Through a Storm.” Edward R. Cohn of the Messiah faculty will direct the show. The department currently has 31 theater majors and 13 theater minors. To become a theater major, a student must undergo an audition/ interview process, says Tymberley A. Whitesel, department co-chair. There

Any Messiah College student may audition for our productions, which range from ‘Godspell’ to ‘Dead Man Walking’ to Shakespeare’s ‘Comedy of Errors.’” “Carousel” will be staged at 8 p.m. Feb. 3-5 and 10-12 and at 3 p.m. Feb. 6 and 13. Senior Showcases follow, running at 8 p.m. March 35. And, on the mainstage, Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” will be presented April 7-17.

College students may be on break already, but it won’t be long before they’re back on campus — and acting up a storm. Several area colleges and universities have active theater departments, which not only teach students the theory of acting, directing and the technical aspects of stage, but put on diverse and sophisticated productions — ranging from musicals to comedies to often lesser-known dramas. The latter description applies to the next production of Dickinson College’s Department of Theater and Dance — “The Caucasian Chalk Circle,” by German playwright Bertolt Brecht. Based on a Chinese parable, the play is both a dramatic and often-comic tale of one woman’s efforts to protect a child during the turmoil of war. “Brecht’s play challenges theatrical conventions and political ideas,” says Associate Professor of Theater Dr. Karen Lordi-Kirkham. The focus of the Dickinson theater department is on teaching the art of theater and dance in a liberal arts setting. In that spirit, classes and productions are open to the entire student body. The department also sponsors two clubs, The Mermaid Players and Dance Theatre Group, which are co-curricular and have primary faculty involvement. “We have used people

At one of Mr. and Mrs. C’s famous parties last weekend, I tried Pinnacle Whipped Cream Flavor Vodka. It’s really weird, I’m not going to lie. But we mixed it with cranberry fizzy soda and it took the sweet edge off. Bring it to your next holiday party simply for the novelty factor. After an evening of sweet cocktails, I needed to (wo)man up and put on a happy face to meet the boyfriend’s sister. I am not an antique shopping kind of girl. When the boyfriend’s mom asked me to go with them, I was looking forward to it like I looked forward to my root canal last year. But it’s Christmastime, so I laced up my tennis shoes and gave myself a pep talk. I was ready for a day of girly

shopping and it was going to be fun. Within the first 10 minutes of being in the store, they told me they found the perfect thing. As I turned my head, I saw the magical twinkle of sterling silver. It was a Tiffany & Co. bracelet staring back at me. My mouth dropped. Every girl — even this girl — loves Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Boys who are still looking for a gift for your wife/girlfriend, you simply can’t go wrong with it. It’s timeless jewelry that’s pricey but not to-

tally out of the budget. My bracelet was only $22. Merry Christmas to me. The thrill of the bracelet find carried me through the next four hours of shopping, and I still can’t stop staring at it on my wrist. The question around the office is, “Is it really real?” Listen, people, to me, it’s real — it’s heavy, it looks authentic, and anyone who says otherwise gets a stern look until they promptly shut up. So, my dear friends, go antiquing this Christmas season. You never know what you’re going to find. If you’re also into the finer things in life, check out Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s performance of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” this weekend. It’s at the Hershey Theatre

Saturday

Saturday and Sunday, and the music will be provided by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. I don’t know about you, but I get tired just watching these dancers. They just move their feet so ding dang fast! Either way, the performance is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit. And speaking of Christmas spirit, next week I’ll be doing my good deed of the holiday season by wrapping gifts at the Capital City Mall. For a donation to United Cerebral Palsy, you can make fun of my heinous wrapping skills, and, if you’re nice, I’ll even give you a bow. We’ll be across from Old Navy from 7-10 p.m. on Dec. 20. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

ist community,” he said. “There are about 125 potters in 50 square miles. I stayed in town and worked in several different stores over the next two years.” What he was able to get out of Seagrove was a full list of connections and artists who were very willing to collaborate. “I really enjoy collaborating with other potters. The art really lends itself to it. It’s very rare to hear about a potter who works by himself,” he said. Brantner has since learned to develop his own voice and emphasize his work on form and lines. His work can be seen at a number of galleries, including The Village Artisans Gallery and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. Area residents can get a first-hand look at Brantner’s pottery during his open house this weekend.

Brantner also happened to get his start in a different medium. “I started out painting in college,” he explained. “When I left college, I worked in Washington, D.C., at the Phillips Collection. After a year with that, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. There’s no telling why but I just started getting interested in pottery. I took books out of the library and read a lot about pottery.” Brantner wanted to get some experience with the art form, and when he was looking at moving to North Carolina, a friend pointed him in the direction of Seagrove and into the shop of Dirtworks Pottery, where he became an apprentice for a year. “(Seagrove is) an art-

5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Happy New Year’s! Well, not quite, but it is time to start planning for your New Year’s celebration. I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve; it always carried so much pressure to have fun. I guess part of the problem is not that New Year’s Eve is not fun (although, I think it is one of the most bittersweet holidays), it’s that I was never sure what to do to make it fun! So, for those of you who are like me, here is a list of some fun ways to ring in 2011: • Host, or go to, a party. Some of my favorite New Year’s Eves were spent with small groups of friends, chatting and watching the great “Year in Review” specials that are on every

station. • If you like roses, wrenches, goats or strawberries, then you live in the right area. These items are dropped at midnight in several local and neighboring towns. Check out a full roundup of all the area New Year’s Eve celebrations in the Dec. 30 issue of Alive. Who needs a crowded Times Square and Waterford Crystal ball? • You could always do dinner, drinks and dancing with that special someone. This year, I’m taking my sister! Make sure you make your reservations now, though. The Green Room right here in Carlisle is offering a three-course Prix Fixe Menu for $60 per person (including tax and gratuity).

Getting into the Christmas spirit At one of Mr. and Mrs. C’s famous parties last weekend, I tried Pinnacle Whipped Cream Flavor Vodka. It’s really weird, I’m not going to lie. But we mixed it with cranberry fizzy soda and it took the sweet edge off. Bring it to your next holiday party simply for the novelty factor. After an evening of sweet cocktails, I needed to (wo)man up and put on a happy face to meet the boyfriend’s sister. I am not an antique shopping kind of girl. When the boyfriend’s mom asked me to go with them, I was looking forward to it like I looked forward to my root canal last year. But it’s Christmastime, so I laced up my tennis shoes and gave myself a pep talk. I was ready for a day of girly

shopping and it was going to be fun. Within the first 10 minutes of being in the store, they told me they found the perfect thing. As I turned my head, I saw the magical twinkle of sterling silver. It was a Tiffany & Co. bracelet staring back at me. My mouth dropped. Every girl — even this girl — loves Tiffany & Co. jewelry. Boys who are still looking for a gift for your wife/girlfriend, you simply can’t go wrong with it. It’s timeless jewelry that’s pricey but not to-

art scene. Brantner also happened to get his start in a different medium. “I started out painting in college,” he explained. “When I left college, I worked in Washington, D.C., at the Phillips Collection. After a year with that, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. There’s no telling why but I just started getting interested in pottery. I took books out of the library and read a lot about pottery.” Brantner wanted to get some experience with the art form, and when he was looking at moving to North Carolina, a friend pointed him in the direction of Seagrove and into the shop of Dirtworks Pottery, where he became an apprentice for a year. “(Seagrove is) an art-

ist community,” he said. “There are about 125 potters in 50 square miles. I stayed in town and worked in several different stores over the next two years.” What he was able to get out of Seagrove was a full list of connections and artists who were very willing to collaborate. “I really enjoy collaborating with other potters. The art really lends itself to it. It’s very rare to hear about a potter who works by himself,” he said. Brantner has since learned to develop his own voice and emphasize his work on form and lines. His work can be seen at a number of galleries, including The Village Artisans Gallery and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. Area residents can get a first-hand look at Brantner’s pottery during his open house this weekend.

tally out of the budget. My bracelet was only $22. Merry Christmas to me. The thrill of the bracelet find carried me through the next four hours of shopping, and I still can’t stop staring at it on my wrist. The question around the office is, “Is it really real?” Listen, people, to me, it’s real — it’s heavy, it looks authentic, and anyone who says otherwise gets a stern look until they promptly shut up. So, my dear friends, go antiquing this Christmas season. You never know what you’re going to find. If you’re also into the finer things in life, check out Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s performance of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” this weekend. It’s at the Hershey Theatre

Saturday and Sunday, and the music will be provided by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra. I don’t know about you, but I get tired just watching these dancers. They just move their feet so ding dang fast! Either way, the performance is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit. And speaking of Christmas spirit, next week I’ll be doing my good deed of the holiday season by wrapping gifts at the Capital City Mall. For a donation to United Cerebral Palsy, you can make fun of my heinous wrapping skills, and, if you’re nice, I’ll even give you a bow. We’ll be across from Old Navy from 7-10 p.m. on Dec. 20. ——— As a friendly reminder, please drink responsibly.

5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Happy New Year’s! Well, not quite, but it is time to start planning for your New Year’s celebration. I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve; it always carried so much pressure to have fun. I guess part of the problem is not that New Year’s Eve is not fun (although, I think it is one of the most bittersweet holidays), it’s that I was never sure what to do to make it fun! So, for those of you who are like me, here is a list of some fun ways to ring in 2011: • Host, or go to, a party. Some of my favorite New Year’s Eves were spent with small groups of friends, chatting and watching the great “Year in Review” specials that are on every

station. • If you like roses, wrenches, goats or strawberries, then you live in the right area. These items are dropped at midnight in several local and neighboring towns. Check out a full roundup of all the area New Year’s Eve celebrations in the Dec. 30 issue of Alive. Who needs a crowded Times Square and Waterford Crystal ball? • You could always do dinner, drinks and dancing with that special someone. This year, I’m taking my sister! Make sure you make your reservations now, though. The Green Room right here in Carlisle is offering a three-course Prix Fixe Menu for $60 per person (including tax and gratuity).
