2nd Annual Friday Harbor Film Festival – November 7-9

imgres

imgresLast October, cinema buffs descended on our little island from all over the region for the inaugural Friday Harbor Film Festival. The theme was the Pacific Ocean and its Rim, with films about island cultures, marine ecology, environmental issues, great adventures and individuals who live and work near the world’s largest ocean. Many of the showings were accompanied by discussion panels with the directors and stars of the films, a very exciting thing to happen in Friday Harbor. My personal highlight was to see the now famous Blackfish for the first time, followed by an incredibly stimulating Q&A that had passionate opinions flying around the room.

This year’s festival will focus on the same theme, “Stories of the Pacific Rim.” Last year’s festival was a huge hit, with many of the films being sold out and getting rave reviews in local papers. The Journal named it one of the top 10 stories of 2013. You can donate now to help make the 2014 festival a success. Contributors of $300 or $500 will receive one or two All-Access Film Festival Passes with admission to all films, priority seating, plus admission to the special opening night soiree for film-makers, their guests, and event sponsors.

Throughout the spring, the festival will be showing thought-provoking films every Tuesday evening at the San Juan Island Grange to continue their mission to entertain, inspire and enlighten through film. Admission is by donation.

More information on when and where to purchase tickets will become available as the 2014 festival approaches.

Spring Musical – Annie – May 9-24

0
Annie_d

Annie_dAfter being the first musical to hit the San Juan Community Theater stage in 1989, it seemed only appropriate to celebrate the 25th anniversary season with the ever-loving Annie! 

Director Susan Williams has cast more than 30 islanders in this play based on the comic strip character, Little Orphan Annie (played by 9-year-old ElsaDora Arendt). Her story unfolds in 1933 New York City during the Great Depression where the young optimistic orphan lives in a dreary orphanage in the tenement section of N.Y.C. Then there’s the despicable Miss Hannigan, sweet secretary Grace and millionaire Daddy Warbucks, orphans, and the beloved music, including “Tomorrow,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile,” and ”It’s a Hard Knock Life”.

Susan says while the story and some of the costumes (including Annie’s dress) will be the same as presented in 1989, the scenery will be very different and the orchestra will be much larger. But there will also be islanders who were involved in the play originally, including Susan (who played Grace in 1989) and costume designer Anita Welch (who played Lilly St. Regis). “I thought it would be really fun to go back to where we started,” said Susan.

Admission: Adults $20, students $10, RUSH $5 – on May 15, Adults $16 and students $8

Date/Time: Friday and Saturday, May 9-10 at 7:30 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays May 15-17 and 22-24 at 7:30 p.m.,                                             Sundays May 11 and 18 at 2 p.m.

Location: Whittier Theatre, San Juan Community Theatre, 100 2nd St.
