The Stranger Comes to town May 1

The Stranger is socko melodrama, spinning an intriguing web of thrills and chills. Director Orson Welles gives the production a fast, suspenseful development, drawing every advantage from the hard-hitting script from the Victor Trivas story. - Variety

Sunday May 1st at the Gard Theater at 2:00PM

Doors open at 1:30PM

Admission FREE

Patrick McGilligan is the author of multiple highly-acclaimed books on Hollywood and the film industry, including works on Alfred Hitchcock and George Cukor, and biographies of Robert Altman, Jack Nicholson, and Nicholas Ray.

Share your thoughts on the arts

There is still room for the upcoming discussions on the Future of the Arts, hosted at the Wyoming Valley School and Cultural Arts Center and facilitated by Jennifer Moore-Kerr with the Interactivity Foundation.

 

Dates available are (note that each discussion is a set of two dates):

Wednesdays March 30 and April 6th from 6-9 pm

Thursdays March 31 and April 7th from noon to 3 pm

Wednesdays April 13th and 20th from 6 to 9 pm

 

The Foundation is committed to working with community members to expand their civic, civil discourse skills through the use of guidebooks on a variety of topics. This topic looks at the future of the arts from multiple perspectives: education, technology and its impact on the arts, intellectual property, and global and local economies. It asks, "Why Art?"

 

Bring your perspectives and voices to these discussions and hear what others have to say on the topic. Do this in an historic, local cultural arts building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, share food with others and enjoy a conversation in which being right is less important than being there and sharing ideas.

 

Please register by emailing, or calling, facilitator Jennifer Moore-Kerr with your name and preferred dates at jennifermrkrr2@gmail.com or 608-574-4569
