Who knew cabin fever would strike in April, but after this past week's storms and blustery temps, it's time to get out and have some fun. Here's a few ideas.

 

Saturday, April 9, all day: Second Saturday in Beacon. Enjoy a day celebrating the arts in Beacon. There will be a Calling All Poets Anthology book launch at the Howland Public LIbrary, opening receptions at Matteawan Gallery and Bau Gallery, a Howland Chamber Music Circle Pop-Up Concert: Rupert Boyd & Laura Metcalf at the Beahive, and much more.

Saturday, April 9 2-4: Auditions for Shakespeare Abridged to be held at the Sullivan County Museum, put on by the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop. Three actors are needed. Male or female, age irrelevant, but improv skills and a  sense of fun is a big help. The performance dates will be September 9-11 & 16-18.
