Feb 26: Movie Night

"Where the Crawdads Sing" – Watch the trailer at IMDB.com

Abandoned by her family, Kya Clark, otherwise known to the townspeople of Barkley Cove as the Marsh Girl, is mysterious and wild.

This is a coming-of-age story of a young girl raised by the marshlands of the south in the 1950s. When the town hotshot is found dead, and inexplicably linked to Kya, the Marsh Girl is the prime suspect in his murder case.

March Events

March 10: Spring Concert

CT Master ChoaleTime: 3 p.m.

The Connecticut Master Chorale will perform "LUX: The Dawn From On High" and other new and inspirational works by Dan Forrest.

"LUX" is Dan's third major work. Written in 2018, LUX filled with the beautiful harmonies, precise orchestration and uplifting vocals that characterize his earlier compositions. An evocation of shimmering light, unconditional love, heavenly joy and deep peace, this is classical composition at its best!

Tickets will be available at www.cmchorale.org or at the door.


March 22: Movie Night

Time 6 p.m.

"Jesus Christ Superstar"-- Watch the trailer on IMDB.com.

Film version of the musical stage play, presenting the last few weeks of Christ's life told in an anachronistic manner. This story looks at the life of Jesus Christ through the troubled eyes of Judas Iscariot. Too often mis-labeled a musical, this film is a "rock opera." There are no spoken lines, everything is sung.

What Else?

We provide a light meal and beverages during the movie, and babysitting is available for your young children. Join us for a discussion afterwards.

Admission is free. We will gratefully receive your donations.

When: Friday, March 22, 6 p.m.
