*Newton Theatre Company is proud to introduce its first Radio Hour: “Sorry, Wrong Number” on Thursday, April 23, at 8:00 p.m. NTC’s Radio Hour Series will feature a variety of one-act plays performed live over Zoom. They will also teach you how to make a themed cocktail before each production that you can enjoy during the show–what better way to spend an evening inside? “Sorry, Wrong Number” is a classic noir thriller–when an isolated woman accidentally overhears two people plotting a murder over the phone, she must try and stop the crime before it occurs. FREE. Register to view the production here. More info about Newton Theatre Company at

*New Art Center is pleased to present the online class Exploring the Beauty of Letterforms on Thursday, April 30 and Thursday, May 7 from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Learn to take a closer look at what we often take for granted: the letterforms all around us—shop signs, packaging labels, subway posters, newspaper/magazine headlines and ads, even the numerals on clocks. Each typeface has its own unique DNA that expresses the history of typography. In this two-session drawing workshop, you’ll design your own sign, create your own letterforms, play with shape, negative space, pattern, rhythm, embellishment, etc. No drawing skills necessary. Suitable for beginning artists and those with prior experience. Cost is $75. Register today here. More info about New Art Center at
