Performing Arts- Theater
Celebrate summer the old-fashioned way: with two short stories, vividly performed by professional actress Michèle LaRue. Michèle unique presentations of century-old American TALES WELL TOLD have garnered admiration from Maine to Oklahoma: =It's difficult to find the words to describe the wonder of what you do!=; =You could hear a pin drop!=; =LaRue is as close to perfect as possible.= In Jewett's THE NICE PEOPLE (1890), a charming young couple creates confusion at a rustic New England resort. In Bunner's MISS ESTHER'S GUEST (1893), a charitable spinster invites a stranger from the City to her country home. A member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA, Michèle has specialized in performances from America's Gilded Age for two decades. Born in Oswego, NY, Henry Cuyler Bunner was for most of his professional life editor-in-chief of Puck, the earliest American comic weekly. His stories about New York City foreshadowed the work of O. Henry. Sarah Orne Jewett lived her entire life in South Berwick, Maine. MISS ESTHER’S GUEST appeared in THE COUNTRY OF THE POINTED FIRS, her best-known and “finest” work, which chronicles a fictional town on the Maine coast.

It shows how boys and girls from El Canal del Dique region in the Carribean coast of Colombia love to paint their bodies with black paint as a remembrance of the period in slavery and the freedom from it. A special characteristic in this story is the use of facial gestures.
