NJ Audubon: July Mushroom Meander Led by Dorothy Smullen, Teacher/Naturalist, former president of the New Jersey Mycological Association Join Dorothy for a “talk and walk” to discover the fascinating world of fungi. Fungi have been used for thousands of years by humans, not only as food but as medicine, fire-starters, insect repellants, decoration, for religious ceremonies and more. Fungi are very important to forests. Not only are they decomposers and recyclers in the forest ecosystem, but they also connect to tree roots – a mutualistic symbiosis that allows trees to communicate with each other. After a talk and display about fungi fun facts, we will walk the trails to look for the diverse groups of mushrooms and fungi. Hand-outs available.

Roomful of Blues at Ross Farm With a non-stop performance schedule for over 50 years, Roomful of Blues has earned critical, popular and radio success and a legion of fans across the globe. Even though the band lineup has changed over the years, Roomful of Blues has always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world. Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. Singer Phil Pemberton brings his sweet and soulful vocals and adds another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Along with bassist John Turner, trumpeter and Basking Ridge-native Carl Gerhard, drummer Mike Coffey, keyboardist Rusty Scott, baritone and tenor saxophonist Alek Razdan, and tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille, Roomful keeps on rockin’ into 2023! According to DownBeat magazine, Roomful of Blues “are in a class by themselves.” With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy, hard-edged blues and R&B, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I ever heard.” Since 1967, the group’s

Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder Experience Steven Lutvak’s and Robert Freedman’s Tony Award-winning operetta this summer at SOPAC! Set in London in 1907, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder focuses on Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk. After the death of his mother, Monty discovers he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst, a grand estate controlled by the wealthy D’Ysquith banking family. After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths inheritors (all played by a single actor, adding to the merriment) begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. Meanwhile, Monty is trying to woo money-minded Sibella Hallward—until he finds himself drawn to young Phoebe D’Ysquith. How will all these convoluted storylines come together? Famed New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood praised A Gentleman’s Guide upon its premier in 2014, saying: “Despite the high body count, this delightful show will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form: musicals that match streams of memorable melody with fizzily witty turns of phrase. Bloodlust hasn’t sung so sweetly, or provided so much theatrical fun, since Sweeney Todd first wielded his razor with gusto many a long
