The Odd Couple at M&D at the Historic Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse

M&D at the Historic Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse
2760 White Mountain Hwy, North Conway, NH 03860


Felix Ungar, a neurotic, neat freak news writer, is thrown out by his wife, and moves in with his friend Oscar Madison, a slovenly sportswriter. Despite Oscar’s problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – he seems to enjoy life. Felix, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people’s mistakes and foibles. Even when he tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, his corrections and suggestions prove extremely annoying to those around him. Oscar, his closest friend, feels compelled to throw him out after only a brief time together, though he quickly realizes that Felix has had a positive effect on him. Performances are at 7:30pm Thursday through Saturday and Sundays at 3:30pm.  Tickets are $25.

Met Opera Live in HD: Der Fliegende Holländer

The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center

18 Bradley Street

Fryeburg, ME 04037


The Met Opera Live in HD series presents Der Fliegende Holländer at 1:00 pm. François Girard, whose mystical, blood-drenched vision for Wagner’s Parsifal became one of the Met’s most intensely visceral highlights in recent seasons, turns to another Wagnerian masterpiece, Der Fliegende Holländer, conducted by Valery Gergiev. For the first time at the Met, Sir Bryn Terfel sings the role of the mysterious Dutchman, condemned to roam the seas for eternity, with Anja Kampe as the devoted Senta, whose love can set him free. In a nod to Senta’s obsession with a portrait of the legendary title seafarer, the Met stage is transformed into a colossal oil painting. Franz-Josef Selig portrays Senta’s father Daland, Sergey 7 Skorokhodov takes on the role of the huntsman Erik, David Portillo sings the Steersman, and Mihoko Fujimura is Senta’s nurse Mary. Der Fliegende Holländer is a co-production with L’Opéra de Québec and Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam.


$26-Adults, $23-Seniors, $18-Students

2020 Valley Ms. Pageant

Theater in the Wood, Intervale


Mount Washington Valley Promotions will host the Valley Ms. Event on Sunday, March 15th at Theater in the Wood, in Intervale. Women of all ages will represent their favorite Valley Promotions member non-profit organizations for the chance to win $500 for that charity. You don’t have to be single, you don’t have to be a model – what you do need to be is passionate about your organization!
There are 4 easy sections to this event:
Each contestant will be interviewed by the Event Judges in a panel forum. The Judges will be scoring each contestant on her ability to talk with a board and answer questions about her interests and the organization she is representing. Dress conservatively. Wear a suit or dress you might wear to a job interview.
Each contestant will introduce herself to the audience and judges and deliver a prepared speech about her sponsoring organization and its impact on her life. We recommend a solid color dress, 3/4 to full length, with an even hemline. Choose attire that is appropriate for this occasion; an evening gown is perfect, as is a fancy pant suit.
Each contestant will present herself on stage in formal attire directly following Public Speaking. You can strut your stuff or be a proper lady – it’s all for fun and charity. The judges will be paying attention to the crowds’ interaction, so invite LOTS of friends to come and support you!
Each contestant and her organization will decorate a container with her name and the name of her sponsoring organization on it, where audience members may cast a “vote” with their money. The contestant with the most money will gain the most points and receive a special award. These “ca$h cans” may be displayed by the organization in advance of the event to collect more donations. Crowd funding pages through social media have been very successful in the past. Following the event, money from these containers will benefit their sponsoring organization!
The event is video-taped and aired on Valley Vision Channel 3, so the participating organizations get the added benefit of having their information shared again and again. Press releases and Facebook photos are shared, further promoting the organizations. Invite lots of supporters to attend the event and cheer you on.
The winners’ organization receives $500 in cash, plus all money raised by her organization by their Ca$h Can; the winner herself receives a crown and sash, plus prizes collected by the participants (the runner-up also receives prizes). All participants also get a swag bag, with items donated by local businesses.
The registration fee for the 2020 Mount Washington Valley Ms. Pageant is $150.00 in advertising sales (3 - 3 1/2” x 5” ads) and a prize donation valued at $25.00 or more donated by the sponsoring organization. The time commitment is only about 3 hours, although there are opportunities to attend events in the future.
