Yoga for Cancer

Mid Coast Hospital and Maine Pines Racquet & Fitness are again partnering to offer a yoga program designed to limit stress, reduce fatigue, and promote healing for cancer patients. “Yoga for Cancer” takes place weekly, beginning September 21 . It is free and open to cancer patients before, after, or during treatment.

Research suggests that yoga can improve the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment, while helping patients cope. Benefits include a decrease in fatigue, pain, and anxiety as well as an increase in appetite, better quality sleep, and improved bone density. The Yoga for Cancer program will help cancer patients develop a better sense of well being, stimulate the immune system, and increase flexibility and strength.

Register at Maine Pines, 120 Harpswell Road in Brunswick, or by calling (207) 729-8433.

What's Its Story? Pop-Up Museum!

A Pop-Up Museum is a temporary exhibit created by the people who show up to display objects and share information about them. It lasts a few hours and then it is gone! This year’s Pop-Up Museum will feature objects that tell a story that is important to you – the memories it evokes about how you acquired it, who made it or gave it to you, what it reminds you of, or its own history. Bring an object to display and share its story with the community. One item per person, please. No live animals or plants, and no weapons.

Free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum and Arctic Studies Center.

Pop-Up Museum will be held in the 2nd floor gallery of Hubbard Hall.

Detroit, by Lisa d'Amour

DETROIT – by Lisa D’Amour- The Professional Ensemble 

October 12 – 29 

Thursday – Saturday at 7:30
Sunday at 2:00

All tickets Pay-What-You-Want

A dark comedy by The Theater Project’s Professional Ensemble, directed by Christopher Price.

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American backyard party quickly turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential.

“A sharp X-ray of the embattled American psyche as well as a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.” —NY Times.
