Theater Project Cafe

June 30 and July 1

Hello to all our friends and family!  Here's what's coming up next at The Theater Project:

We've debuted a new series this year called CAFE - it features area performers in a casual setting, getting the chance to show their stuff.  All our eclectic CAFE presentations have been very much enjoyed by our audience - and they are a lot of fun for us too!  If you missed CAFE in November or April, you'll have another chance to attend!  The third CAFE in our continuing series will be presented Friday, June 30 and Saturday, July 1 at 8:00 PM.

This time around, classical guitarist Brian Cullen, folk singer Kat Logan, poet Herb Coursen, singer/songwriter Matt Newberg and actor and dancer Don Weatherbee will join Master of Ceremonies Al Miller on stage.

Brian Cullen has been studying, playing, and teaching classical guitar since he began in South Africa, years and years ago.  Cullen's performances captivated listeners at our April CAFE.  He will play both Friday and Saturday, with a different program for each evening.

Kat Logan, proprietor of Maine Street Art in Brunswick, has also played and sung at an earlier Theater Project CAFE and is back by popular demand.  She will be performing Saturday night.

Herb Coursen, poet and Shakespearean scholar, has been involved for years with The Theater Project as a discussion leader, playwright, dramaturge and critic.  Coursen has published several books of poetry.  He will be reading Friday and Saturday nights.

Matt Newberg is a singer and songwriter who has been writing, composing and performing for years.  He is also a former Tiny Tim a long-time-ago Theater Project production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL.  He will be performing original acoustic folk music on Friday.

Don Weatherbee has been acting with The Theater Project for more years than he wants to count.  He began dancing before acting and continues to do his own choreography and to work with other dancers and choreographers in the area.  He will be doing some of his choreography for both CAFE's.

Coffee and refreshments will be available at the CAFE's. Performances run between an hour and a half and two hours.  Suggested ticket price is $10.
