How Would You Like to Save the World?
You can, in a fantasy performance that features the audience as heroes! When you attend a performance of the Forest of Mystery, you will become the travelers who have been foretold to appear before All Hallows Eve to free the world from the clutches of the great dragon. You will need help, from elves, mages, dwarves, fairies and a shining knight, but you can do it! Click here for more info and to buy tickets (on sale now).

Forest of Mystery - A Unique Theatrical Experience
Coming to Monson on October 2nd and 3rd is a unique outdoor theatrical experience, not to be missed! It will take place in the evening on the hiking trails at the Keep Homestead Museum on Ely Road in Monson. It is an interactive fantasy tour which will lead successive groups sequentially through a series of scenes, each with its own station and actors, as the audience walks the Keepís woodland trails on an autumn evening. What could be better than enjoying the night, the scenery and the enchantment all at once? Click here for more info and to buy tickets (on sale now).

Summer Art Camp a Blast
The 2015 Monson Summer Art Camp was a huge success! Held the last two weeks of July at Quarry Hill Community School, kids came for one week or two and made many pieces of art. In the first week there was also Young at Art Camp, for ages 5-7. The camp is put on by Monson Parks and Rec with support from the Monson Arts Council. Andrea Newland returned as the Art Director of the camp. Click here for a review and photos.

"Lend me a Tenor" a sidesplitting success
The Monson Arts Council spring play "Lend me a Tenor" was staged at the Palmer Historical and Cultural Councilís home, Harmony Hall, for two weekends in May and June, to enthusiastic audiences. The MAC production was directed by Stephanie Gilbert, who created a wonderful show. Click here for a review and photos.
