*Theater Ink debuts its production of Chicago on March 21st-24th at the Lasker Auditorium. You’ll love this sharp-edged satire featuring a dazzling score that sparked the immortal staging by Bob Fosse. Get your tickets here for the live stream or in-person production.

*Discover the art of preserving flowers through Waxing Flowers with Historic Newton on Thursday, March 21st from 7:00-8:30 pm. Draw inspiration from the beautiful gardens at the Durant-Kenrick House and create your own timeless floral arrangement. Participants will learn how to prepare flowers, how to properly preserve them, and how to create their own floral arrangements. Register here to make your bouquet.

*The Newton Art Association invites you to attend a virtual demonstration on Saturday, March 23rd from 10:00 am-12:00 pm with British Watercolorist Graham Berry. Using a palette of six colors and just two brushes Berry will paint a scene with multiple figures. His paintings are inspired by the effect of light and shadow on the environment, creating dynamic shapes and colors, and focusing on people going about their everyday lives. Watch this demo from the comfort of your own home with a Zoom link found here.

*On Monday, March 25th from 7:00-8:30 pm, The League of Women Voters Newton will be holding a Cultural Districts Topic Meeting to learn about the effort undertaken by Newton Community Pride, the Newton Cultural Alliance, the New Art Center, and the Charles River Regional Chamber to make the part of Washington Street which connects West Newton and Newtonville and adjoining streets a designated Cultural District by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, under the Cultural Districts program. Join us at The Allen Center to learn about this proposal, what it involves, and what a Cultural District designation would mean for Newton. For more information about the meeting visit The League of Women Voters site here.
