Masks in Clay Workshop In several cultures, humans have developed different ways of blending in with nature, re-interpreting ourselves as individuals by wearing elements on our bodies such as masks or jewelry, everything that adorns us, that accompanies us, that dresses us. Ceramics have played an important role in witnessing these objects that were often used in ritual ceremonies, battles, celebrations, and animal hunting. In order to embody new characteristics within our own sense of humanity, using animal symbols wishing to have their strength, adding fangs, and feathers, some use symbols, anthropomorphic mixtures, symbols of nature, and representations of gods, among many more symbols, according to each cosmology. Masks can help us to reveal the identity of who we are or who we would like to be, using the attributes and strengths of animals, colors, elements of nature, symbols and reinterpreting our reality and corporeality. In this workshop students will be creating masks by hand in clay, based on the idea of identifying in ourselves symbols that represent our identity, relationship with the natural and mythical. All supplies included in this workshop.
The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged) Reduced Shakespeare Company They’ve skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright. Now, the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged) covers comedy through the ages. Tickets to The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged) are more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. The bad boys of abridgement leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes. Warning! Side-effects may include uncontrollable milking and painful running gags. CONTENT ADVISORY: In the spirit of Shakespeare’s comedies, RSC shows contain comic depictions of violence, mild innuendo, bawdy language, and the occasional rude work. All children (and parents) are different, so we’ve chosen to rate our shows PG-13: Pretty Good If You’re Thirteen.

Hulda: The Other Legend of Sleepy Hollow Hulda: The Other Legend of Sleepy Hollow, previously seen at New York's Old Dutch Church, comes this fall to New Jersey's Old Dutch Parsonage. The churchyard of the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow, made famous as haunt of the "Headless Horseman" in Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," is resting place for Hulda of Bohemia. Shunned from society as a witch, Hulda would later win acclaim as a Patriot hero of the Revolutionary War. Featuring Carla Lynne Hall, with an original score performed by Jim Keyes, this one-woman show tells the story of Hulda from the perspective of Abby, an enslaved African girl Hulda befriends at a time when both are forced to live on the edges of society. Please bring your own lawn chairs or blankets for this outdoors autumnal dramatic presentation by Carla and Keyes. This program is sponsored by the Wallace House and Old Dutch Parsonage Association as part of a series “Early Black American Women in Words” observing the 250th anniversary in 2023 of Black American poet Phillis Wheatley’s journey to London in the summer of 1773 and publication of Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral.

Raritan Valley Symphonic Band Fall Concert “Jubiloso” The Raritan Valley Symphonic Band returns to Franklin to start its 41st season with its Fall concert, “Jubiloso”, on Sunday November 5 at 3 PM. Under the direction of Frank Amato, the concert will be held at Franklin High School, 500 Elizabeth Avenue, Somerset, NJ where the RVSB performed a well-attended concert last April. Admission is free! “Jubiloso” is a musical term used to direct musicians to perform in a jubilant or exalted manner. Throughout the upcoming season, the RVSB will be jubilantly performing works from its initial concert in March 1984. For this Fall concert, the RVSB will perform a musical journey of the history of the Concert Band through some of its most popular composers. The concert begins with one of America’s most popular marches: E.E. Bagley’s National Emblem March. Next is Percy Grainger’s Irish Tune from County Derry using the theme from the traditional old air “O Danny Boy” with colorful sonorities, straightforward accessibility, and a memorable climax. The band will then perform two concert band standards: Frank Erickson’s Toccata for Band and Robert Pearson’s Minuteman March. The first half concludes with Eric Osterling’s regal arrangement of March & Procession
Raritan Headwaters Lantern Walk Raritan Headwaters continues the tradition of celebrating a historic European festival celebrating autumn at the end of the agricultural year and the beginning of the harvest. Festive music plays as we carry our lanterns through the meadows of Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve on a moonlit night. The first day of the fall time change can seem unsettling, with sunset arriving an hour earlier. But there’s a bright side to the earlier night: Raritan Headwaters Association’s (RHA) annual Lantern Walk! This year’s Lantern Walk will be held from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5 – the same day clocks are set back an hour – at RHA’s Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve at 2121 Larger Cross Road, Bedminster. The Lantern Walk is modeled after a traditional European festival celebrating the end of the agricultural year and the beginning of the autumn harvest. Festive music plays as revelers carry glowing lanterns through the meadows of Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve on a moonlit night. “Lantern Walk is a fun and magical celebration for all ages, as we light up the night by parading with colorful lanterns on Fairview Farm’s beautiful meadow trail,” said Cindy Ehrenclou, RHA’s executive director. “Over the
