Wilbury Theatre Group presents the Rhode Island premiere of Tony-Award® winner for Best Play (2016) The Humans by Stephen Karam, directed by Josh Short. Running November 17th – December 11th, the production features Jim O’Brien, Jeanine Kane, Rachel Dulude, Jessie March, Dave Rabinow, & Carol Varden. The New York Times calls The Humans, “piercingly funny… [a] bruisingly sad comedy-drama about an American family teetering on the edge of the abyss.” Tickets for all performances are $5-$55 through the Wilbury Theatre Group’s innovative Name-Your-Price model and are available at thewilburygroup.org/ humans.

“Few plays ride the line between comedy and drama as perfectly as The Humans,” said Wilbury Artistic Director Josh Short. “Stephen Karam captures the love and struggle of an American family celebrating a holiday together in manner that is funny, poignant, and moving, while also capturing the anxieties and fears that so many of us carry with us as well. The group of artists that have come together for this production is creating something so touching, and sometimes terrifying, and we can’t wait to bring it to our audiences for the shared experience that only theatre can provide.”

Irish American Erik Blake has brought his wife and his mother for Thanksgiving at the new home of his daughter and her boyfriend. His mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”) is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter Aimee has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and worried that they are abandoning their values. The Humans tells the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: old age, abandonment, poverty, and death.

The Humans is hailed by critics on Broadway and around the country. The Los Angeles Times said of the playwright Stephen Karam; “[Karam] captures contemporary American domestic life in such wincingly accurate detail that something at once eternal and urgently of the moment is achieved.” The Chicago Tribune said of its world premiere in 2014; “Stephen Karam’s kind, warm, beautifully observed and deeply moving new play…is a work filled with uncommon compassion for the kinds of people whom the theater often ignores.” The Humans was adapted into a film in 2021 starring Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Jayne Houdyshell, Steven Yeun and Beanie Feldstein.

This production is made possible through a generous donation from the Florence Family Fund.

The Los Angeles Times said of the playwright Stephen Karam; “[Karam] captures contemporary American domestic life in such wincingly accurate detail that something at once eternal and urgently of the moment is achieved.” The Chicago Tribune said of its world premiere in 2014; “Stephen Karam’s kind, warm, beautifully observed and deeply moving new play…is a work filled with uncommon compassion for the kinds of people whom the theater often ignores.” The Humans was adapted into a film in 2021 starring Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Jayne Houdyshell, Steven Yeun and Beanie Feldstein.

This production is made possible through a generous donation from the Florence Family Fund.

Event Details

Wilbury Theatre Group presents the Rhode Island premiere of Tony-Award® winner for Best Play (2016) The Humans by Stephen Karam, directed by Josh Short. Running November 17th – December 11th, the production features Jim O’Brien, Jeanine Kane, Rachel Dulude, Jessie March, Dave Rabinow, & Carol Varden. The New York Times calls The Humans, “piercingly funny… [a] bruisingly sad comedy-drama about an American family teetering on the edge of the abyss.” Tickets for all performances are $5-$55 through the Wilbury Theatre Group’s innovative Name-Your-Price model and are available at thewilburygroup.org/ humans.

“Few plays ride the line between comedy and drama as perfectly as The Humans,” said Wilbury Artistic Director Josh Short. “Stephen Karam captures the love and struggle of an American family celebrating a holiday together in manner that is funny, poignant, and moving, while also capturing the anxieties and fears that so many of us carry with us as well. The group of artists that have come together for this production is creating something so touching, and sometimes terrifying, and we can’t wait to bring it to our audiences for the shared experience that only theatre can provide.”

Irish American Erik Blake has brought his wife and his mother for Thanksgiving at the new home of his daughter and her boyfriend. His mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”) is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter Aimee has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and worried that they are abandoning their values. The Humans tells the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: old age, abandonment, poverty, and death.

The Humans is hailed by critics on Broadway and around the country. The Los Angeles Times said of the playwright Stephen Karam; “[Karam] captures contemporary American domestic life in such wincingly accurate detail that something at once eternal and urgently of the moment is achieved.” The Chicago Tribune said of its world premiere in 2014; “Stephen Karam’s kind, warm, beautifully observed and deeply moving new play…is a work filled with uncommon compassion for the kinds of people whom the theater often ignores.” The Humans was adapted into a film in 2021 starring Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Jayne Houdyshell, Steven Yeun and Beanie Feldstein.

This production is made possible through a generous donation from the Florence Family Fund.

Event Details

Top Of The World is The World’s Premiere Tribute to The Carpenters! Fronted by singer Debbie Taylor, her Karen Carpenter vocal resemblance is absolutely astonishing. She is backed by a seven-piece band consisting of top-notch, professional industry musicians who have had amazing careers in their own right. The band members are all multi-instrumentalists and at times use 3 keyboards to recreate the incredibly complex arrangements created by Richard Carpenter. The attention to detail paired with saxophone, trumpet, flute and many more instruments complete every song to perfection!

Who can forget the incomparable music of the Carpenters? No doubt, you will be singing along as the Top of the World band performs Carpenters hits like; “Close To You,” “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Rainy Days And Mondays,” “Please Mr. Postman,” and “Yesterday Once More” to name a few.

Enjoy an old-fashioned sleigh / wagon ride down our quiet backcountry roads or through our beautiful farm trails with our majestic draft horses as your guides!

A sleigh ride stirs the senses and relaxes the soul: strong horses, crisp country air, and jingling bells—when you crawl into bed after a sleigh day, you will sleep deeply, wrapped in the ride’s wonders. Dress appropriately for outdoor weather. Hats, scarves, mittens, boots, and a warm coat are essential. We have lap blankets available for use. Please ask, or feel free to bring your lap blanket if you would like.

Sleigh Ride Policy: We need frozen ground and a sizable snowfall to provide a sleigh ride. If conditions are unsuitable for sleighing on the day of your reserved ride, Liberty Farm will substitute your sleigh ride with a wagon ride of the same length. If conditions are not ideal for a sleigh or wagon ride, we will reschedule you for our next available date.

Liberty Farm is located in the beautiful northwestern corner of Burrillville, Rhode Island, 20 minutes from both Providence & Worcester locations. Our farm is not only a working farm but our home. We are open by appointment only.

A Judy Collins Christmas: Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter to Curate Special Seasonal Concert, Holiday & Hits.
_
The Concert Program features Holiday Evergreens, Judy Collins favorites, and songs from her critically-acclaimed latest album, Spellbound Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Judy Collins will be performing a Holiday & Hits concert program for the winter 2022 season. The Christmas concert series will feature a program of holiday classics, songs from Judy’s latest album, Spellbound—her 55th album and her first ever complete album of originals—and beloved songs culled from her six-decade career.
_
Holiday & Hits will be an intimately elegant Christmas experience curated by Judy. Her singular baroque folk sensibility is uniquely suited to entries from the Great Christmas Songbook. Under a Christmas tree of classic songs, Judy thoughtfully places gifts from her era-defining oeuvre—including evergreens by Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Judy original favorites—future classics from her latest album, Spellbound. On Holiday & Hits, a cultural icon welcomes you to a winter wonderland.
_
Since her debut album, 1961’s Maid Of Constant Sorrow, Judy has remained a restlessly creative force with a vibrantly varied artistic palette. Today, she is recognized as a noted author, an Academy Award-nominated documentary director, a Grammy Award-winning recording artist, and a boldly vulnerable storyteller. As prolific and inspired as ever, Judy released her 29th studio album, Spellbound, on February 4th , 2022. The 13-song album is her most autobiographical and personal, and it is a special entry in her oeuvre, as it marks the first time ever she wrote all the songs on one of her albums.

Event Details

Wilbury Theatre Group presents the Rhode Island premiere of Tony-Award® winner for Best Play (2016) The Humans by Stephen Karam, directed by Josh Short. Running November 17th – December 11th, the production features Jim O’Brien, Jeanine Kane, Rachel Dulude, Jessie March, Dave Rabinow, & Carol Varden. The New York Times calls The Humans, “piercingly funny… [a] bruisingly sad comedy-drama about an American family teetering on the edge of the abyss.” Tickets for all performances are $5-$55 through the Wilbury Theatre Group’s innovative Name-Your-Price model and are available at thewilburygroup.org/ humans.

“Few plays ride the line between comedy and drama as perfectly as The Humans,” said Wilbury Artistic Director Josh Short. “Stephen Karam captures the love and struggle of an American family celebrating a holiday together in manner that is funny, poignant, and moving, while also capturing the anxieties and fears that so many of us carry with us as well. The group of artists that have come together for this production is creating something so touching, and sometimes terrifying, and we can’t wait to bring it to our audiences for the shared experience that only theatre can provide.”

Irish American Erik Blake has brought his wife and his mother for Thanksgiving at the new home of his daughter and her boyfriend. His mother (affectionately referred to as “Momo”) is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and his other daughter Aimee has recently been the victim of a nasty breakup. The parents are disappointed that their daughters have left home to struggle in New York City, and worried that they are abandoning their values. The Humans tells the story of the quintessential family reunion: a group of people who love each other but still wrestle with basic human fears: old age, abandonment, poverty, and death.

The Humans is hailed by critics on Broadway and around the country. The Los Angeles Times said of the playwright Stephen Karam; “[Karam] captures contemporary American domestic life in such wincingly accurate detail that something at once eternal and urgently of the moment is achieved.” The Chicago Tribune said of its world premiere in 2014; “Stephen Karam’s kind, warm, beautifully observed and deeply moving new play…is a work filled with uncommon compassion for the kinds of people whom the theater often ignores.” The Humans was adapted into a film in 2021 starring Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Jayne Houdyshell, Steven Yeun and Beanie Feldstein.

This production is made possible through a generous donation from the Florence Family Fund.

A holiday mash-up for the whole family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is celebrating its 10th anniversary this season as it returns for another spectacular tour.
Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, this contemporary dance spectacle is a re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, smashing hip hop dance and Tchaikovsky’s timeless music together into a heart-stirring and inspirational holiday event.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker is brought to life by a powerhouse cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip hop’s founding fathers, who opens the show with a short set.

“For over three decades, the Ocean Mist has remained a destination for top-shelf live entertainment and great food. Their menu includes appetizers, burgers, wraps, tacos, grilled flatbread pizzas, entrees, and more. Breakfast is served daily until 2:00pm. The Ocean Mist wears many hats, breakfast joint, beach bar, restaurant, nightclub, and concert venue. When it’s all said and done the Mist can be wrapped up in one word, FUN.

Summer weekends at the Ocean Mist are packed with nonstop entertainment. Regional and national live bands perform every Friday and Saturday night. Saturday afternoons feature live music from the Ocean Mystics with a special feature artist each week from 2pm – 5pm. Sunday Fundays at the Mist is the perfect way to wrap up your weekend. Each Sunday there is a rocking band from 4pm – 7pm. Come to listen & dance to some great music while enjoying your favorite beverage and a bite to eat.

In addition to live bands, the Ocean Mist often has special entertainment and food events like a Wing Night, Taco Night, Bingo, and Movie nights. These events typically can be found during the cooler months of the year when the beach is not the star attraction.” – RI Blogger
