  • - Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance (GSGD) Musical Theatre Workshop announces a new component to their already successful camp. In existence since 2006, GSGD got its start at the now defunct Windsor Hall on the Cumberland Mall. Students rotated between morning classes of Art, Music, Acting, and Dance for Theater. After lunch, students would take a walking fieldtrip to local art galleries such as the Saville Gallery, the Allegany County History Museum, the Gilchrist, and the Cumberland Theatre. When Windsor Hall closed, GSGD looked for a new home. Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) Continuing Ed. Dept. presented an opportunity to rehearse and perform on the stage in the Dr. Robert S. Zimmer Theatre. How could they pass it up? The new home became a great adventure for GSGD Musical Theatre Workshop.

    Boosting 90 participants, they now have a waiting list each year for its regular musical theatre workshop for students entering grades 3-5 and grades 5-8 running July 17-21, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. In addition, to the regular camp, directors Laura Godfrey and Desiree Witt have had requests to add a high school component to the camp. This year they would like to try to see if there is an interest in the next level. During the week of July 10-14, 2017, GSGD in collaboration with Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) will extend the camp to include students entering grades 8-12 to participate in the high school Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance Musical Theatre Workshop. Students will still rotate between classes of singing, choreographed movement, visual arts, and acting. Visiting artists present their craft and/or talent to the students in an open workshop as well. A free performance for the parents’ tops off the week. $190.00 includes art supplies, projects, music, t-shirt, and all classes. Teachers are Desiree Witt, Laura Godfrey, Sharon Schade, and Karen Johnston. For each additional family member, there is a 20% discount off tuition. To register for either camp, please contact Denise Ware at ACM by calling 301-784-5069 or emailing her at dware@allegany.edu.

This year’s Arts Walk is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, from 3 – 8 PM, in Downtown Frostburg. Designed to be a walking arts tour, attendees can expect a jam-packed evening with a wide array of entertainment for the whole family!

    This year’s participating artists include painters, photographers, metalworkers, jewelers, potters, seamstresses, glassblowers, soap makers, and more! Over 45 artists and craftspeople will be selling their wares in 28 participating businesses and locations in downtown. There will also be a full line-up of musical and theatrical performances throughout the day at several outdoor stages around town and inside local businesses..

    There is lots of fun to be had for the kids, too! Children can create unique crafts at City Place using recycled materials, hosted by Evergreen Heritage Center, or board the Arts Bus for more colorful fun with Kids Craft with Clare. Other children’s activities and demonstrations include a free pasta necklace station, a homemade play dough workshop, and a tie-dye workshop.

    Having earned a designation as Maryland’s eighteenth Arts and Entertainment District in 2009, Arts Walk is held annually to showcase the talents of a wide variety of local artists, craftsmen, and performers. Bethany Doyle, Main Street Assistant, says, “It’s so important to shop at independent businesses and to support local artists, and Arts Walk is the perfect opportunity to do both. It’s really exciting to see the many avenues of expression that can be taken.”


    This event is sponsored by FrostburgFirst, Maryland State Arts Council, and the Allegany Arts Council. Most special events and activities are free, and many Frostburg businesses will offer Arts Walk discounts, specials, and raffle opportunities.

  • - Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will once again present something for everyone during its 2016-17 season lineup – an adventure tale, a beloved children’s fantasy, a Christmas holiday ghost story, a Civil War drama, an 18th-century British comedy and two student dance concerts with original choreography.
    The season kicks off with “Around the World in 80 Days,” the classic adventure tale by French writer Jules Verne. Grab your passports and climb aboard for a whirlwind trip around the world! It’s 1872 and the eccentric and wealthy Phileas Fogg figures, with mathematical precision, that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. And he wagers half his fortune to prove it. Join Fogg and his loyal, yet unreliable, valet as they hop train, steamship – and elephant – in this fun-filled race against time that takes you around the world and into the heart. Performances will take place in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 20 to 22, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Oct. 15.
    The Fall Dance Concert, titled “Double Play,” will showcase the skill of Jamie McGreevy, choreographer and FSU Dance coordinator, as well as the spectacular talent of the FSU Dance Company, on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 10 and 11, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre. “Double Play” features two performances in one evening. Act I, “Weight on Me,” extends an exciting work presented during the spring 2016 dance concert. To the contemporary neo-classical music of composer Ólafur Arnalds, the piece explores various forms of physical, emotional and social weight the human body encounters and endures. During Act II, “Manipulations,” audiences will witness the investigative play between choreographers, dancers and designers as they each contribute to the movement through physical, audible and visual manipulation.
    Next, celebrate the holiday season in a toast to human kindness with an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, “A Christmas Carol.” After being visited by ghosts from his past, present and future, the notoriously grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge has a true meaning-of-life question on his hands. Should he continue to live as a wretched miser or join the world around him as a decent, caring human being? With an ensemble cast playing such memorable characters as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Christmas Spirits, “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect gift for families and friends to enjoy together. Drama Theatre performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, and Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 8 to 10, with matinees on Sunday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 11, at 2 p.m.
    In the spring, the Department of Theatre and Dance will present the powerful drama “Father Comes Home From the Wars, Parts 1, 2 and 3” by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (“Topdog/Underdog”). In this powerful drama, Hero, a slave, must decide between joining his master on the Confederate battlefield – for what may or may not be a chance to gain his freedom – or staying behind on the plantation with the woman and people he loves. Infused with music and contemporary wit, “Father Comes Home From the Wars” is a high-stakes drama about the mess of war, the cost of freedom and the pain of love. Performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4, and Thursday through Saturday, March 9 to 11, at 7 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, March 12, at 2 p.m.
    The fourth and final play of the season is “She Stoops to Conquer,” a delightfully witty and satirical romp that is as promising of laughter today as it was to audiences more than 200 years ago. When city slickers Marlow and Hastings travel to the countryside in search of love, they find themselves in a tangle of pranks and mistaken identities, including the belief that their prominent host (and Marlow’s possible future father-in-law), Mr. Hardcastle, is a mere innkeeper. To top it all, Marlow has a serious problem. In the company of barmaids and servant girls, he is strikingly self-assured, but in the presence of gentlewomen, including Kate Hardcastle, he is a shy and stammering schoolboy. The Hardcastle household becomes uproariously unhinged as Kate takes matters into her own hands, Hastings pursues his love and an outlandish cast of other characters burst their way into the escalating humor. Performances take place in the Drama Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, April 20 to 22, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, April 15, at 2 p.m.
    The season wraps up with the annual Spring Dance Concert, “Legends,” on Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Theatre. “Legends” pays homage to many of the great music icons we have lost, such as David Bowie and Michael Jackson. Featuring the FSU Dance Company, this variety concert brings together our favorites tunes – the ones that make us sing and dance in the grocery aisle – with one of the world’s liveliest art forms.
    Season subscriptions are available until Oct. 22. For $45, Main Stage subscribers receive four tickets (one ticket per show for Main Stage productions). In addition, Main Stage subscribers can reserve tickets in advance of the general public and may purchase tickets to the Fall and Spring Dance Concerts at student rates. Individual tickets are $14 for general admission and $7 for students.

  • | Health Seminars and Screenings
    - January is Cervical Health Awareness Month . The Town Planner
    wants you to know that there�s a lot you can do to prevent cervical
    cancer. About 20 million Americans currently have HPV (human
    papillomavirus), the most common sexually transmitted disease. HPV is a
    major cause of cervical cancer.
    The good news?
    HPV can be prevented by the HPV vaccine. Cervical cancer can often be prevented with regular screening tests (called Pap tests) and follow-up care.
    In honor of National Cervical Health Awareness Month, The Town Planner encourages:
    Women to start getting regular Pap tests at age 21 Women to get the HPV vaccine before age 27 Parents to make sure their pre-teens get the HPV vaccine at age 11 or 12 Men to get the HPV vaccine if you are under age 22
    Thanks to the health care reform law, you and your family
    members may be able to get these services at no cost to you. Check with
    your insurance company.
    Taking small steps can help keep you safe and healthy.
     
           
  • - CES at Frostburg State University continues its 60th anniversary season with a spring lineup of award-winning musicians and professional artists from around the world. Performers include French songstress Cyrille Aimée, contemporary violinist Daniel Davis, the Buddhist monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, the a cappella group The Filharmonic, the Irish musicians of the Brock McGuire Band, jazz musician Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Russian pianist Yuliya Gorenman, who will join the Maryland Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of Beethoven.

    Romance is in store with a LIVE! at StarScape club performance on Friday, Feb. 10, from magnetic singer Cyrille Aimée. Winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition, Aimée displays her versatility with crowd-pleasing originals and new takes on old-time standards. This 7:30 p.m. Valentine’s Day celebration in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall in FSU’s Lane University Center features full bar service and a club menu. An additional dinner option offering a selection of entrées is served at 6 p.m.

    Contemporary violinist Daniel Davis performs on Thursday, March 2, at 8:15 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall as part of the On the EDGE club series. With charisma and brilliant technique, Davis and his band offer a performance that takes the violin into the modern musical landscape by fusing elements of hip-hop, R&B, jazz and pop.

    The Mystical Arts of Tibet presents Buddhist monks of the Drepung Loseling Monastery, who arrive in March for a five-day residency endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Events held Sunday, March 5, through Thursday, March 9, include the creation of a mandala sand painting and multiple lectures and workshops on Tibetan philosophy, art, meditation and culture. A public performance of “Sacred Music, Sacred Dance,” which combines multiphonic chanting, sacred music and dance, takes place March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center.

    The On the Edge series hosts the youthful a cappella singing group The Filharmonic on Thursday, April 20, at 8:15 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall. This talented group of young Filipino-Americans first gained national attention in the semi-finals of NBC’s competition show “The Sing-Off” and through their appearance in the popular movie “Pitch Perfect 2” as Team Philippines/Manila Envy.

    Traditional Irish music from the Brock McGuire Band is offered in a LIVE! at StarScape club performance on Saturday, April 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Lane Manicur Hall. The band is led by button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire and is supported by pianist Denis Carey and vocalist Garry O’Meara on banjo and mandolin. Their performance emphasizes traditional Irish music along with lively arrangements of American old-timey, bluegrass, French-Canadian and Celtic traditions.

    A LIVE! at StarScape club performance from iconic jazz musician Dr. Lonnie Smith takes place in Lane Manicur Hall on Saturday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. After a 50-year career, this authentic guru of the Hammond B-3 organ is still making waves. National Public Radio says, “You can probably count on one hand the number of people who’ve mastered the Hammond organ in jazz. Dr. Lonnie Smith can claim that distinction and more.”

    The Maryland Symphony Orchestra, led by Musical Director Elizabeth Schulze, presents a Masterworks concert, “A Fifth of Beethoven,” on Friday, May 12, at 7:30 p.m. in PAC Pealer Recital Hall. Two Beethoven works will appear in the program: “Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 73” and “Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67.” Award-winning Russian pianist Yuliya Gorenman, who has been hailed as one of the most exciting Beethoven interpreters of her generation, joins the orchestra in the piano concerto.

    Tickets may be ordered by calling 1-866-849-9237 or 301-687-3137 or by visiting click for details. Tickets can also be purchased at the CES box office on the second floor of the Lane Center, which is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering a Dog Obedience course at their main campus in McHenry on Tuesdays, April 4 to May 16, 6-6:45 p.m.

    This class is for new and experienced dog owners and focuses on the training that dogs need for good manners at home and in public, particularly when meeting new people and dogs. The class teaches people (not their dogs) the basic techniques of dog training and allows them to practice these techniques with their dogs in class. Over the course of the seven weeks’ students will learn how to train their dogs more effectively. Please note: not all students should expect to see dramatic changes in their dogs’ behavior over this short time period. They will need to continue to train their dogs regularly for many months after the class is over in order to realize significant changes. Instruction will be given in polite walking on a leash, sit, down, stay, recalls and help with behavior problems. Dogs must be six months old. Please note, dogs do NOT attend the first class on 4/4. Handlers ONLY.

    Instructors Susan and Tom Hertz have been training dogs for more than 25 years. Throughout that time, they have been members of the Capital Dog Training Club of Washington, D.C. (CDTC) where they trained their own dogs for AKC obedience competition and taught dog obedience classes. Tom is a past president of CDTC. After moving to Garrett County at the end of 2005, they began teaching dog obedience classes at Garrett College. Both are certified as AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluators and Susan is an evaluator for Therapy Dog International, Inc. Their current dogs, a greyhound and an Irish wolfhound, are therapy dogs who have worked with children and make weekly visits to Garrett Regional Medical Center.

    For additional information on this course, persons may contact Terry Beachy at 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register for this course, contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.
