“The Homesteaders” Panel Presentation and Tea at Remington Museum

Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum concludes its annual Art Highlights and Tea lecture series with a panel presentation by the Morristown Area Readers’ Book Club that explores depictions of the West in the work of Laura Ingalls Wilder in comparison to those by Frederic Remington. The presentation, entitled, “The Homesteaders,” will take place at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, May 9th at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. The talk is free and open to the public, and will be presented in the Museum’s ​Tiffany Room. “Remington and Wilder are leading figures in the creation of our national mythos of the Western Frontier,” says Museum Education Specialist Laura Desmond. “The stories of pioneer homesteaders’ independence, self-reliance, and fortitude brought to life in the novels of Laura Ingalls Wilder are a fascinating counterpart to Remington’s depictions of cowboys, soldiers, and mountain men.” Immediately following the panel presentation, at 3:00 pm, a delicious tea will be served in the Museum’s parlors, courtesy of​ Doris Whitehead and friends. The cost is $10 for Remington Museum members and $15 for non-members. Please call (315) 393-2425, email [email protected], or reserve seats at the tea online at fredericremington.org.

Fort Salem Theater Announces Summer Schedule

SALEM, NY — Fort Salem Theater, Washington County’s Theater Home for Music, Musicals, and Cabaret in Salem’s Main Street Business District, has announced its 2018 season. In addition to its bread-and-butter musical and cabaret lineups, the Fort will feature three comedies without music. Several of the shows will play more than one weekend, in repertory. Every summer the theater presents the World Premiere of at least one musical. This year’s entry, by the theater’s artistic director, Jay Kerr, and television newsman Jerry Gretzinger, is an homage to the two hundredth anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein. It is entitled Frank and Stein: A Karaoke Musical. The authors submit that had Shelley been writing today, her work would have indeed been a musical, and quite possibly would have involved karaoke. June 16 — The Whiskey River Band, Mainstage, 7 PM. Equally at home playing in honky tonks or in concert venues, the band’s repertoire features the classic country of their youth and that of their loyal following. Join them for some line dancing.
