The Miracle Worker at Florida Repertory Theatre
Florida Repertory Theatre’s 20th anniversary season continues with William Gibson’s hopeful and uplifting true story, The Miracle Worker, an American classic which was immortalized on the screen by Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft. The production runs in the Historic Arcade Theatre now through March 17. "We are proud to continue our tradition of bringing an American classic to vivid new life with The Miracle Worker," said Producing artistic director Robert Cacioppo. "This play is one of the most revered true stories of perseverance and determination, and its message of hope and the tenacity of the human spirit is a timeless one we must never forget. Annie Sullivan's strength and Helen Keller's bravery helped shaped a generation, and are still a lesson to us all." This timeless American classic tells the inspiring true story of how a determined teacher was able to save young Helen Keller from her isolated silence. Just before the turn of the 20th century, desperate for help, the Keller Family hires a young woman to help their blind and mute daughter learn to communicate with the outside world. Annie Sullivan sees that Helen is more than a spoiled and violent child trapped behind a wall, and against tremendous odds, she frees Helen’s spirit and opens her mind. Made famous by the film starring Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, The Miracle Worker is a moving, inspirational and electrifying story of perse6 - March 2018

LABORATORY THEATER OF FLORIDA
The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 Kayleigh OʼConnell, Patricia Clopton, Mark King and Madelaine Hayes.
The Laboratory Theater of Florida presents the zany whodunnit, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 by John Bishop. The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious "Stage Door Slasher") assemble for a backer's audition of their new show at the Westchester estate of a wealthy "angel." The house is replete with sliding panels, secret passageways and a German maid who is apparently four different people- all of which figure diabolically in the comic mayhem that follows when the infamous "slasher" strikes again. It’s the ultimate Whodunnit, complete with zany twists and murderous mayhem! Carmen Crussard (Play On!, The Smell of the Kill) directs. Laboratory Theater artistic director Annette Trossbach says, “This is one of the funniest scripts I have ever read. It is a zany, madcap whodunit with excellent surprising twists. The set is a character in and of itself, adding to the hilarity. You'll laugh your pants off!.” 8 - March 2018
The ensemble cast includes Danielle Channell (Crimes of the Heart), Kayleigh O’Connell (Whatever Happened to Baby Jane: a parody of the horror), Stacy Stauffer (Scrooge TV), Mike Edouard (I and You), Patricia Clopton (Sordid Lives), Maddy Hayes (Stop Kiss), Dave Cheseboro (The Rauschenberg Project Play), with Mark King and Nathan Ross making their Lab Theater debut. The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 plays from March 9 to March 31 at the Laboratory Theater of Florida. Performance dates are as follows: March 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 and 31 at 8 p.m. and March 11, 18, 25, and 31 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available to purchase on www.Brownpapertickets.com or by calling the box office at 239-218-0481.

BIG ARTS: Dames at Sea opens March 8 on Sanibel
BIG ARTS presents Dames at Sea at the Strauss Theater on Sanibel March 8 through April 7. In the early 1930s, a Broadway musical is in rehearsal. Mona Kent is its temperamental diva star, Joan a wise-cracking chorus girl, and Hennesy the producer/manager/director. The naive Ruby arrives from Utah, with “nothing but tap shoes in her suitcase and a prayer in her heart”, determined to be a Broadway star. She promptly faints into the arms of Dick, a sailor and aspiring songwriter (“It’s You”). Ruby gets a job in the chorus, but Hennesy informs the cast that the theater must be torn down, and they must find another place for the show. Joan and Lucky, another sailor and her former boyfriend, renew their romance (“Choo-Choo Honeymoon”) while Ruby admits her feelings for Dick (“The Sailor of My Dreams”). Dick and Lucky persuade their Captain to volunteer the use of their ship (“Dames at Sea”). Mona recognizes the Captain as a former boyfriend (“The Beguine”). When Mona kisses Dick, to persuade him to give her one of his songs, Ruby sees and is despondent (“Raining In My Heart”). Dick explains the misunderstanding and the couple make up (“There’s Something About You”). While rehearsing on the actual ship, Mona becomes sea sick (“The Echo Waltz”); Ruby steps in to save the show and becomes a
star (“Star Tar”). The three couples decide to marry (“Let’s Have A Simple Wedding”). The cast includes John Ramsey, Theresa Walker, Jack Delaney and Craig Smith. Craig John Ramsey (Lucky) returns to the BIG ARTS Smith Strauss Theater to work with some of his favorite people. Into the Woods, Spamalot and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee are all fond memories made with this wonderful company. A former Cape Coral resident turned New Yorker, he’s delighted to be in South Jake Florida for all of March.

Rigoletto March 10 & 13 Gulfshore Opera announced the season finale of the professional artists in residence. The resident opera singers, all with New York management, have been touring the region since Jan. 15 during their nine-week contract period. The great Verdi opera Rigoletto is their swan song and by far the largest and most challenging production of the season. The tragic story of lust and revenge revolves around the hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto, the licentious Duke of Mantua, and Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda. This full scale production with orchestra and chorus will have two performances at difDan Scofield ferent locations to ensure that everyone in Gulfshore Opera’s tri-county service area has a chance to see this great and famous opera; the first performance is March 10 in Port Charlotte at the Cultural Center Theatre, a lovely 500-seat auditorium with full stage. The second performance takes place March 13 at the border of Lee and Collier counties in the 800-seat Parish Life Center of St. Leo Catholic Church. Based on record ticket sales a warm reception of the company’s first partnership at this venue (Madama Butterfly), plans are under way to augment the existing stage to create better sightlines and acoustics for the second grand opera production at the venue. General director Steffanie Pearce is working with set, costume and lighting designers to create a unique “Game of Thrones” inspired setting 14 - March 2018
for the production. “I’m a big fan of the Game of Thrones costumes, especially in season one. Rigoletto has certain parallel characters, like the Duke who believes himself to be all powerful and entitled to take whatever he wants. So those who follow Game of Thrones will see references to some of those characters in our production”, explained Pearce. In the title role baritone Daniel Scofield, a native of Binghamton, NY, continues to garner acclaim for his performances of the leading baritone repertoire across the United States, including St Petersburg, San Jose, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and New York City. For his appearance in Rigoletto with Opera in the Heights, the Houston Press declared, “He’s the finest court jester I’ve seen in years.” Tenor Jonathan Tetelman plays the Duke, a role which he will repeat later this spring at the Berkshire Opera Festival. Returning after great success last season, his current engagements include Flavio in Bellini's Norma with Metropolitan Opera and the Verdi Requiem Milan Festival Orchestra in Lake Como, Italy. Praised by Opera News for his “galvanizing presence,” all agree he is an exciting star in the making. The role of Gilda is performed by soprano Camille Ortiz who recently debuted in the role at International Festival of the Aegean in Syros, Greece. Ortiz has appeared in venues such as the Sala Manuel de Falla in Granada, Spain, the Carlos Chávez Hall of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, D.F., and in New York City, Avery Fischer Hall at the Lincoln Center.

London Amara exhibit at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center
On Friday, March 2, celebrate the opening night of London Amara’s “Ethos” exhibit at the Sidney and Beren Davsi at Center. London Amara’s “ethos” explores themes of convergence, context and perspective through a series of immersive photos created using the collodion photography method. For her second solo exhibition at the center, artist London Amara created “ethos,” an assemblage of both hand-made, silver gelatin prints created from film negatives as well as images created by the alternative photographic process known as collodion photography. This technology was developed during the birth of photography in the mid 1800s, and employs a large format camera to record images on glass and metal plates. A hand-mixed combination of cotton cellulose, iodide, bromide, alcohol and ether are poured onto the plate in the darkroom before sensitization in a silver nitrate bath. The plate is exposed in the camera, then brought back to the darkroom to be developed. Each plate must be cleaned, colloidal poured, sensitized in silver bath, exposed, developed, washed, fixed, three additional washes, allowed to dry overnight and then var-
nished. The end result is a virtually grainless image, and because this type of photography requires 75%-80% UV light, it “sees” things our human optic coverage does not. Various factors (humidity, temperature, wind) change the way the colloidal chemistry behaves in a single moment of time, never again to be experienced or reproduced. It’s an extremely contrasted recipe of rapid, back-to-back steps that require slow movement, including a naturally occurring film speed of .5-2, so low light exposures can easily be 10 minutes or longer. That’s an eternity of time in photography for the shutter to remain open, and that’s when it gets phenomenal. This is evident in Amara’s 12 minute exposure of a Pacific fern frond titled “Praeter Naturam,”meaning beyond what is natural or normal. This image visually describes the air filled, fluid space of spirit and spontaneity where our extra sensory perception is required. Amara works as a full time, professional artist in Bonita Springs, and Columbus, Ohio. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First St. in the historic downtown Fort Myers River District. For more info, visit www.sbdac.com

Sea Grape Gallery will be featuring two of their artists, Cheryl McClure, photographer, and Lise Lindsay, glass artist, from March 1 to April 5. Cheryl McClure and her husband moved from Chicago to Colorado where they enjoyed skiing the beautiful mountains of that area.

Cheryl became fascinated by the wonderful living creatures that inhabit the waters and began photographing these creatures and the rare plant life that lives in the sea. Living in Florida, Cheryl’s photography passion has also spilled over to the beautiful flora and fauna of Florida and its wildlife. Her photographs of eagles, egrets and other Florida birds are a must to see. As Cheryl says, “I am always on a quest for a better photo, or one of a strange new creature colored by nature’s paintbrush.” When seeing Cheryl’s photography, the viewer realizes that Cheryl has a true passion for the beautiful subjects she captures in her artwork. Lise Lindsay was always creative and decided to major in fine arts when going off to college. She soon realized that it would be in her best financial

Celebrate Bernstein’s 100th with the Symphonic Chorale
The Symphonic Chorale of Southwest Florida will present Leonard Bernstein at 100 in the chorale’s final self-produced concerts of the 2017-2018 season. Join the chorale on Saturday, March 24 at New Hope Presbyterian Church, 10051 Plantation Road in Fort Myers, at 7 p.m. or Sunday, March 25 at Bower Chapel at Moorings Park, 130 Moorings Park Drive, in Naples at 4 p.m. Leonard Bernstein would have been 100 years old in 2018 and was one of the most prodigiously talented musicians in American history. He is best known as the Music Director of the New York Philharmonic from 1958 to 1969, film scores for On the Waterfront and West Side Story, symphonies and choral works such as Chichester Psalms, which the Chorale will perform in Yiddish, with organ and harp accompaniment. Dr. Trent Brown, artistic director and conductor of the chorale,
says, “Our performance celebrates the work of Bernstein, but also looks at the works that influenced him. When Bernstein conducted Haydn, Mozart, Stravinsky and Gershwin, his tastes developed. The chorale looks back to those influences, as well as pondering new directions after the legacy of Bernstein.“ Bernstein, as a composer, conductor, author, music lecturer and pianist, was one of the first American musicians to receive world-wide acclaim. The Symphonic Chorale is proud to celebrate his accomplishments and talent as they present many of his best-known compositions. Both concerts of Leonard Bernstein at 100 will be presented free of charge by the chorale, although a good will donation taken at the concert is appreciated. Pre-register for seating is requested at www.symphonicchorale.org prior to the concert. Call (239) 560-5695 for more information.

Maestro Nadler to conduct Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers in Haydn program
The Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers will present two major works in concerts this April in a program called, Nadler Conducts Haydn. Conductor Emeritus of the Southwest Florida Symphony, Maestro Paul Nadler will lead the full Mastersingers chorus and the Mastersingers Festival Orchestra in performances on Friday, April 6 at Faith Presbyterian Church, 4544 Coronado Pkwy, Cape Coral, at 7 p.m.; and on Sunday, April 8 at Moorings Presbyterian Church, 791 Harbour Drive, Naples, at 4 p.m. The program will open with Haydn’s Symphony #92, known as the Oxford Symphony. The second half will feature the Mass in Time of War, with the chorus and a
quartet of professional soloists joining the orchestra. Both of the Haydn masterworks date from the final years of the 18th century. Symphony #92, one of the so-called London Symphonies, was actually written in Paris several years earlier. It became known as the Oxford Symphony when Haydn conducted an acclaimed performance of it upon receiving an honorary doctorate from Oxford University. Scholars have said that the piece “defines the Classical era”. The Mass in Time of War was composed in 1796, as Austria was mired in an ongoing war with Napoleon’s France. It is also called Paukenmesse (Kettledrum Mass) because of
its extensive use of timpani throughout. In this magnificent piece Haydn uses the timpani to great effect, as in the Agnus Dei, where the drums mimic the sound of far-off canons before the words Dona Nobis Pacem, grant us peace, close the work. Soprano Karin White, who performed with the Mastersingers last spring in the premiere of Dr. Jason Bahr’s Symphony No. 2, returns to sing the technically challenging solos in this piece. She will be joined by Tenor Matt Morgan and Bass Ed Pember. Tickets are $25 for either performance, with a special $15 ticket price for students. They are available on the Mastersingers website at www.mastersingersfm.com.

SAM GALLOWAY CONCERT SERIES
Eric Paslay - March 23
The Outlaws - April 5
Aaron Lewis, Eric Paslay & The Outlaws at The Ranch
The Sam Galloway Concert Series in conjunction with Gator Country 101.9 continues with more national artists at The Ranch Concert Hall & Saloon in Fort Myers this spring. Aaron Lewis returns to The Ranch on March 14. If it sounds like Aaron Lewis is long past defending his country music pedigree, that would be a correct assessment. Lewis would prefer the music speak for itself and, with the release of Sinner, Lewis’ stunning Dot Records follow-up to his groundbreaking full-length solo debut The Road in 2012, any would-be detractors will be pretty much out of ammo. Lewis, however, is not. Sinner blasts through today’s country music doldrums like a shot of 100-proof whiskey, with the singer making zero compromises with either himself or the restrictions of a format that seems to have abandoned its rougher tendencies in favor of pop and ‘70s rock inclinations largely lacking in grit. “I’d like to think that Sinner is a newer take on classic, traditional outlaw country, Waylon and Merle and Willie, and Hank Jr. and Johnny Cash and all that stuff,” says Lewis. “That was the music I heard as a kid, and that’s the Country music that permeated my soul and stuck with me my whole life.” Tickets for Aaron Lewis start at $35. The Sam Galloway Concert Series welcomes Eric Paslay back to The Ranch on March 23. EMI Records Nashville breakout country artist, Eric Paslay, delivers a powerful punch as a renowned, Platinum-selling, hit songwriter and dynamic performer. Paslay has celebrated five No. 1 hits including “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (Eli Young Band), “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” (Jake Owen), “Angel Eyes” (Love & Theft), Aaron Lewis “Rewind” (Rascal Flatts) and “Friday Night,” Happenings Magazine
the smash lead single from his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. The Temple, Texas native earned nominations for Grammy Best Country Song, ACM Song of the Year and CMA Song of The Year for “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” in 2013 and earned his first Grammy nomination as an artist in 2016 for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “The Driver”- a collaboration with friends Charles Kelley and Dierks Bentley. Most recently he was honored with an ACM Song of the Year nomination for “She Don’t Love You” at the 2016 ACMs in Las Vegas. Tickets for Eric Paslay start at $20. Other upcoming shows in the Sam Galloway Concert Series include The Outlaws on April 5, High Valley on April 7, Joe Diffie on April 13, Tracy Lawrence on April 21, Colt Ford on April 27 and Billy Currington on May 25. The Sam Galloway Concert Series was started in the fall of 2014 to help bring awareness to Community Cooperative (The Soup Kitchen) and the good work they do in the community, says Brian Tidwell, general sales manager of Sam Galloway Ford. The concert series features rock and country artists on a regular basis at the venue. Portions of the profits of each concert go to help Community Cooperative feed the community, Tidwell said. For every pound of food donated, Sam Galloway Ford donates $1 to Community Cooperative. Concert goers are also encouraged to bring canned food items to the concerts at The Ranch. For tickets & details, visit www.theranchfortmyers.com. The Ranch can be reached at 239-985-9839.

That’s how the 23rd Annual ‘Taste of Key West’ will roll onto its new site, Mallory Square, on Monday, April 16, from 6 to 9 p.m. A benefit for AIDS Help, the 3hour, open-air event promises a bounty of beverage and palate-pleasing plates at the famous “Home of the Key West Sunset.” Taste of Key West 2018 gates open at 6 p.m. for free general admission. Foodies can stroll edibles and drinkables, including seafood, tropical and Caribbean flavors, European delicacies, vegetarian dishes and more and buy tickets based upon what looks best. Advance food and beverage ticket packages will be made available for online
purchase in the weeks ahead. Every fork lifted, every plate cleared, is due to the generosity of donating food service owners and managers, AIDS Help executive director Scott Pridgen notes. “Participating restaurants give us their time, staffs and product…chefs create gourmet bites of Keys cuisine influenced by the island’s seafaring heritage, subtropical climate and multicultural atmosphere.…vintages from 100 wineries and vineyards are provided by Republic National Distributing Company, with a larger beer selection than ever,” Pridgen says. Biking or walking is strongly suggested…for both convenience and to work off those calories. For Key West visitor information, go online to www.fla-keys.com/keywest or call 1-800-LAST-KEY

Texas Tony’s Rib & Brewhouse
With a goal of bringing a first-class experience and barbeque product Texas Tony’s Rib and Brew House was born. Tony Phelan grew up in Texas, took those roots and his love of Texas barbeque and set out on a plan of introducing a unique brand of barbeque to Southwest Florida. Taking a combination of Hickory and Oak woods to smoke with and cooking at low temperatures, it created the perfect formula for Award-Winning Barbeque. Texas Tony’s barbeque is “all about the rub and the ring.” The rub is made from his secret recipe. The ring occurs when you smoke meat over a long period of time; the pink is where the smoke has permeated the meat.
