Broadway’s Biggest Musical Flops and Hits (Tea)
Wednesday, October 18, 2:00PM

When it comes to Broadway musicals, many creative minds conspire to put on a show aimed for greatness, but in the highly competitive Broadway theatre scene, more shows bomb than succeed. Some of these failed productions have managed to attain a degree of fame—or infamy. Join Eric Hafen, Producing Artistic Director of our Bickford Theatre, as he explores some of the productions that make you scratch your head wondering, “How did that ever get on Broadway?” Plus, get the inside scoop on the Bickford’s newest production, Bakersfield Mist! (opening October 26)

Veteran Expressions (Tea and Tour)
Wednesday, November 15, 2:00PM

Combat Paper has helped many veterans make sense of their experiences in a constructive, safe and artistic environment. Join Walt Nygard, former Corporal, USMC, and Vietnam Veteran as he describes Combat Paper, the exhibit, and the fascinating process by which artists deconstruct American military uniforms such as those on display in our “Evolution of Military Fashion” exhibition, reclaim them as paper and communicate their stories through art.
