Newton Cultural Alliance | Highlights Arts & Culture | Things To Do

NCA is keeping you connected with each other and with your favorite local arts and culture organizations. 

*The Newton Free Library will host two fabulous events this week.  Chef Bill will demonstrate how to cook Shakshuka at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26th.  This popular Middle Eastern breakfast, brunch, or dinner dish is a tomato and egg combination that will impress your whole family.  Formerly a chef at the original Ritz-Carlton/Boston, Chef Bill worked at Harbor Sweets, makers of handmade chocolates in Salem, MA.  Register here to shake up breakfast with Shakshuka.   If you rather sing your heart out than eat your heart out join the Matt Heaton Family Sing-along event on Wednesday, June 2nd at 11:00 am. Matt Heaton brings an infectious energy to his sing-alongs. Peppered with well known classics and a few soon-to-be classics, this performer plays with panache on guitar & banjo.  The Newton Free Library knows what’s sure to please parents and kids alike. Sing your heart out virtually with Matt Heaton here.

*Kids Night Out is back!  The West Suburban YMCA will watch your children so you can have a night out on Friday, May 28th at 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.  Drop your kids off (grades K-8) at the Y for pizza, a movie, games, arts and crafts, and more.  The cost is $30 per child and is open to both members and nonmembers.  Call the Welcome Center (617-244-6050) to register.
