SEAL at The Theater Project

SEAL will be onstage at The Theater Project September 28th through October 14th.  Performance times are Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, $10 for children (12 and under); Thursday shows are always Pay-What-You-Want. Tickets are available anytime at theaterproject.com or by calling the box office at 207-729-8584.  

The Theater Project in Brunswick is excited to open their new season with the world premiere of SEAL an original play written by Clay Graybeal and directed by Michael Rafkin.  This theatrical thriller will have audiences questioning whether lead character Greg Scott is the victim of a government conspiracy or whether he is one of the most deadly men in the world; the staff at the Cumberland Clinic search for answers but each new discovery, in a race against time, only intensifies the mystery.  Author Clay Graybeal is a Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of New England. His career, spanning more than thirty years, concentrates on training students and practitioners in the fields of mental health and substance abuse treatment. Speaking about SEAL, Graybeal reveals that “a good thriller should not be a spectacle but should examine real issues. We remember characters that we care about.” SEAL audiences are kept in suspense as to whether the main character is unreasonably mistrustful of his own government or if he is involved in complicit, covert operations.  Graybeal asks, “When do you call out or stand up to corruption? And what do you do when you discover that you have been manipulated? There is often a seed of truth, or a precipitating event that may be a real cause for concern. It’s not always true, but worth investigating to find out.” SEAL joins a list of other productions that Graybeal has written, including plays THE CALLING and SHADOW SOULS. The Rocky Coast Radio Theater Group has performed his Tumbledown Valley and It’s A Wicked Good Life, both of which were broadcast on Maine Public Radio.

Pihcintu Chorus Concert

The Pihcintu Chorus is a multi-national refugee and immigrant girls’ chorus based in Portland, Maine.  It was started by songwriter Con Fullam as a way to help restart the young lives of kids who had seen too much of war, famine, and refugee camps.   These amazing young people have performed all over the United States, including the White House and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.  There are lots of videos on YouTube if you’re curious, but hearing them in person and meeting them afterward is nothing short of inspiring.  They are fabulous!

Family Ministries at St. Paul’s is organizing special 45-minute pre-concert activities on the same afternoon (2:30-3:15) for students and their families.  The vision for these crucial minutes with the young people (and hopefully parents as well, especially if the students are on the young side) will be a conversation about how they can be open and welcoming to our guests who come from a variety of different countries, ones very different from ours.  Please call the church office at 207-725-5342 if you wish to participate in the pre-concert activities so we can have enough supplies for everyone.

There will be a reception following the concert, at which you can meet and talk with the members of the group.   We hope you can join us for a very special and unforgettable afternoon.  A free-will offering will be taken, all of which will benefit the Pihcintu Chorus.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: ELLIS PAUL Returns

Back by popular demand, Ellis Paul, one of Maine’s most lauded singer-songwriters, will perform again for the Concerts for a Cause series on September 29th at 7:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick.  Two-thirds of all proceeds will be donated to two local charities: The Gathering Place and The Brunswick Teen Center.

Born and raised in Aroostook County, Paul has a literate, provocative and urbanely romantic folk-pop style that helped ignite the folk revival of the 1990’s. Not only has Paul won 14 Boston Music Awards, but he is an artist/cartoonist, has published 3 books, played thousands of shows and released 19 albums and a documentary film.  His pop music songs have appeared in movies and on television, bridging the gap between the modern folk sound and the populist traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger.  In 2015 Paul was invited to give the commencement address at the University of Maine and was given an honorary doctorate.

As Roberta B. Schwartz states in her review in the Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, “Ellis Paul is one of the best singer/songwriters of his generation. And for many of us he is the face of contemporary folk music—few are as smart, as literate and as poetic as Paul.”

Indeed, he is all that, and in a very real sense, even more. He’s an observer, a philosopher, and an astute storyteller who shares with his listeners the life lessons he’s learned, and in turn, life lessons they ought to heed as well. By affirming and defining who he is, Ellis Paul affirms and uncovers the essence of us all.

Tickets: $20 in advance, $22 at the door. Available at the church office (729-8515), at Gulf of Maine Books (729-5083), or ONLINE at https://uucbellis.brownpapertickets.com/

Books & Brews: Tribe

The October meeting of Books & Brews will focus on “Tribe” by Sebastian Junger and will include a sample tasting of a featured beer.

More About “Tribe:”
Junger studies war veterans from an anthropological perspective and asks how “do you make veterans feel that they are returning to a cohesive society that was worth fighting for in the first place?” Junger’s premise is that “soldiers all but ignore differences of race, religion and politics within their platoon,” and upon return to America, find a fractious society splintered into various competing factions, often hostile to one another.

BDA Speaker Series presents Tim Sample

 The BDA Fall Speaker Series presents:  Tim Sample: “Hardscrabble Humor and the Power of Laughter”

The Brunswick Hotel & Tavern, 4 Noble Street, Brunswick.
Breakfast service will begin at 7:30 am. The event will start at 7:50 a.m. $25 per person

Join the BDA as we welcome Tim Sample to Brunswick! Tim will speak about Maine humor and the power of laughter and his career as “New England’s premier native humorist”.

A native of Boothbay Harbor, Tim Sample lived in Brunswick and Portland before moving to Calais in Downeast Maine.

Novelist Stephen King has likened Sample’s work to that of Mark Twain, and Charles Kuralt called him “Maine’s humorist laureate.” Tim’s books, albums, and videos have sold over a million copies. For eleven years he was a correspondent for CBS News and a regular essayist on the Emmy award winning television show CBS News Sunday Morning, hosted by veteran newsman Charles Osgood.

Tim was born and raised in Maine and has never lived (or for that matter wanted to live) anywhere other than the Pine Tree State. Tim’s first album of downeast humor was recorded in 1979 and produced by Noel Paul Stookey, “Paul” of Peter, Paul, and Mary with liner notes by the late humorist Marshall Dodge, who along with his partner Rev. Robert Bryan, created the world-famous Bert and I recordings back in the 1950’s.

Tim has also written and/or illustrated over a dozen books, including regional bestsellers Saturday Night at Moody’s Diner and his most recent Maine Curiosities second edition. 

Tim’s national TV appearances include The Today Show and Good Morning America, and he has narrated award-winning films and books on tape, including Robert McCloskey’s children’s classic Bert Dow Deep Water Man and Stephen King’s The Sun Dog.

Join our providers and instructors on this collaborative journey using yoga, acupuncture, and physical therapy to explore and learn about your body and mind as you travel through this amazing life.

Find the workshop that will support and strengthen your wellness!

PART 1:

Yoga and Acupuncture for a Healthy Cycle

Navigate the natural hormonal shifts in a 4 week menstrual cycle with Yoga and Acupuncture for a healthy cycle.

This workshop explores how Tradition Chinese Medicine views the phases of a healthy menstrual cycle and integrates yoga poses and essential oils  to support its natural rhythms. Our menstrual cycles often display patterns that reflect our wider health and from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective they provide a useful insight. Rectifying underlying patterns can help to adjust your cycle as well as help with other symptoms that may seem unrelated. Even women whose periods are not disrupted, may gain insights into their wider health by looking at their cycles.

**Acupuncture will be provided according to each individual participant’s cycle. Flexible looser clothing is recommended to allow access to points on the abdomen, hands and legs to just above the knee.
