Greenfield Resident SerahRose Roth brings “Two-Headed” home

From a GAN-e-meed Theatre Project press release:

SerahRose Roth is proud to bring GAN-e-meed Theatre Project’s production of Julie Jensen’s Two-Headed home as part of its New England tour.  This intimate exploration of the friendship of two women on the early Mormon frontier features Roth (GAN-e-meed’s Executive Artistic Director) and Brattleboro, VT native Kara Manson. Becky Webber, who played Horatio in GAN-e-meed’s 2011 all-female Hamlet starring Roth, directs.

“I am thrilled to bring a piece of art with which I am integrally involved into my own community, for the first time.  That doesn’t happen a lot with professional theatre” says Roth.  She moved here with her young daughter in 2011 after acting, directing and producing theatre in Boston and Chicago, and continues to lead GAN-e-meed, whose work is most often performed in Boston.  “In Greenfield, I found a vibrant community that supports the arts as integral to life. From the start, GAN-e-meed has valued the opportunity to bring high quality theatre to smaller communities.  Greenfield has a thriving culture that is simply aching for more theatre arts.”

Locals Provide A Chance to Bee Helpful

From a Piti Theatre Company Press release:

It's winter and honeybees and other pollinators are busy trying to survive. As you may have heard, winged workers are having a tough time these days. Ecologically, the plight of the bee is profoundly connected with a multitude of important environmental issues - how we grow our food, pesticide use, development, monoculture and GMO crops, etc., etc.

Backwards Week in Review

Because it's a short week, and we're involved in things happening this weekend, we want to take a few moments to talk about the end of the week first. 

Tomorrow is Veterans Day and Greenfield will be recognizing our servicemen and women with a parade through downtown and ceremonies at Veterans Mall.  Even though we're closed, one of our staff members will be on location tomorrow morning to film the parade and recognitions so that you can watch them on Cable Channel 15 next week or online as part of our Video on Demand Player.

GCTV's office will be CLOSED on Friday, November 11th, for Veterans' Day.

Our office will be closed on Friday, November 11th for Veterans Day but our studio will be open Friday November 11th & Saturday November 12th for Double Take Fringe Festival Performances beginning a ½ hour before each showtime.  For more information please see double-take.org.  Our office will re-open at 10AM on Monday, November 14th.
