40th anniversary Anniversaries are always a time to reflect, and as we celebrate the 40th year of the Nantucket Arts Council’s (NAC) founding, it is a perfect time to renew our commitment to the arts and recall with fondness so many of the stories that are part of NAC’s history on the island. The Arts Festival itself, while only 21 years-old, is a testament to NAC’s dedicated effort to promote art in all of its forms, and our artists for all of their contributions. The Festival embodies the essence of our mission, and so many who have been part of the Festival’s legacy, the honor roll of advocates for art on Nantucket. Recently the Board of Directors of the Nantucket Arts Council recognized our former Board President Reggie Levine by awarding him the title and stature of President Emeritus of the Board. Reggie’s dedication to the NAC, and to promoting and protecting the value of art-in-our-lives precedes the Council, of which he was a founding member, and his efforts continue to drive this message forward. The Festival program this year attempts to acknowledge this monumental contribution by highlighting Reggie’s own work on its cover, and reminding us through his words at the end, the responsibility we have to nurture art and our artists. And, as all of you who know Reggie and know the Festival are aware, his careful hanging of the Opening Exhibit is his invitation to enjoy a very special week on Nantucket! Patty Roggeveen Chair, Nantucket Arts Festival On Behalf of the NAC Board of Directors

“SciFi Madness” Astronomy and space have long inspired movie makers, and many of the topgrossing films of all time have had some connection to worlds beyond Earth. Join us Saturday, October 5 at 7 pm for a double-feature presentation: A TRIP TO THE MOON was one of the first movies ever made. In this 1902 silent movie, based loosely on a Jules Verne story, astronomers travel to the Moon in a rocket fired from a giant cannon, where they encounter unfriendly moon creatures who try to capture them before they manage to return safely to Earth. Created by George Melies, one of cinema’s early pioneers of special effects, this film has been lovingly restored and is accompanied by an original new musical soundtrack. It’s a moment of cinematic history that everyone should see. Run time: 15 minutes PLANET 9 FROM OUTER SPACE a cult classic from 1957, is widely considered one of the worst movies of all time. The story is simple: aliens are worried that we earthlings will develop a deadly ‘solaranite bomb’ that could destroy the universe and so they hatch a plan to turn the dead into zombies to stop us. Written and directed by the infamous Ed Wood, the film was advertised as “almost starring Bela Lugosi” because the famed actor died just four days after filming began, and so a stand-in was hired who spent the rest of the film with a cape over his face so that viewers wouldn’t know it wasn’t really Lugosi. The special effects are laughable, the acting is terrible, and the cheesiness factor is enormous - but that’s all part of the fun! Run time: 78 minutes. Popcorn will be provided.

theatre PLAY READING: WORKSHOP PLAY # 1

Summerland by Barbara Hammond OCTOBER 4-6 October 4 - rehearsal open to the public: 10-1 and 2-5 October 5 - rehearsal open to the public: 10-1 and 2-5 October 6 - rehearsal open to the public: 10-1 Showing and talkback 5 p.m. SUMMERLAND is set in the present day on a small and sparsely populated island in the Caribbean. Maggie and Charles escape their English home and garden, their children and their predictable lives to spend the summer at a beachside inn frequented by writers and bohemians. There Maggie stumbles upon a young itinerant American painter (James Dean in female form) who threatens to rearrange the couple’s idea of life, love and marriage. The play explores the limitations of an ordered existence and the danger of letting chaos reign. In a way, it’s a primer on how to wreck your marriage, come alive and fall apart in one summer and questions the boundaries of acceptable behavior -- between wives and husbands, artist and subject, Brits and Americans... It asks the question: What would you do if no one would ever find out what you’d done?

WORKSHOP PLAY #2

The Limits of Admiration by Barry Kaplan October 8, 9 October 8 - rehearsal open to the public: 10-1 and 2-5 October 9 - rehearsal open to the public: 10-1 Showing and talkback 5 p.m

Synopsis

Buddy and Julie, both writers, have been friends since college, a mutual admiration society, though neither has been very successful. Julie published two novellas in her twenties, Buddy has had a few plays produced. Buddy announces that he is taking himself out of theatre history: no more submissions. Julie announces that she is getting married. Martin, her husband to be, is very rich. When Buddy and Martin meet, they are both suspicious of the other’s motives when it comes to Julie. Once Julie and Martin are married, Buddy feels Julie’s neglect. However, she arranges for Martin to help Buddy financially. Buddy is both grateful and resentful. Martin asks Buddy to evaluate the new novel Julie has written. Buddy can’t figure out whether Martin wants him to like it or not like it. Just tell the truth, Martin tells him. At this point, Buddy can’t quite tell what the truth is. And certainly, as the title of the play suggests, there are limits to admiration. The questions is: can friendship stand the test of ambition and the truth? Friendship is put to the test when success is the prize. Will loyalty trump self- interest?
