BWW Interview: MSMT's MAGIC TIME Draws Capacity Crowds
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Feb 26, 2017

“Are you ready for some fun and fairytales? We're going to need you to use your imaginations to help us.” The preschoolers in the front rows giggle and squeal in anticipation. Maine State Music Theatre's Artistic Director, Curt Dale Clark knows how to energize young audiences, and he clearly relishes the opportunity top perform for this morning crowd of over 160 ranging in age from several months to grandparents who have come to hear the special program of story and song, MAGIC TIME at Brunswick, Maine's Curtis Memorial Library. The two free forty-minute interactive programs, which featured readings, video, and live performances of the Robin and Clark musical versions of Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland, were created by MSMT in partnership with the Curtis Memorial Library with the help of a generous gift from the Maine Humanities Council and drew almost 300 people for both sessions. The idea, born of MSMT's desire to expand its outreach efforts, nurture young audiences, and draw a new diverse public to live theatre, began as a successful mini-grant proposal to Maine Humanities Council and by virtue of the enthusiasm of the MSMT and CML staffs and the community response mushroomed into something of a maxi event with lines cued up and out the library doors before the start of each show.

James T. Hughes Releases JASPER SONG
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2017

Dog Ear Publishing's new novel from author James T. Hughes tells the story of Alice and Tucker, the young stewards of Jasper Spring. Tucker's family has lived on the ranch for generations, and the two look forward to filling the homestead with children of their own. After two miscarriages, their hope of a family is fading quickly and they feel farther apart than ever before. The only living thing that either one of them feels truly connected with is their border collie, Tommie, a dog who senses their needs. Enter Ray - an ill-dressed 11-year-old boy sorely neglected by his single mother. Ray stumbles across the gorgeous and isolated valley while out on an aimless spin with his dilapidated bicycle. When Tommie finds Ray, the boy is transfixed by the beautiful dog, and the dog's natural instinct to herd spurs him to drive the boy into Tucker and Alice's empty arms. The couple develops affection for the forsaken boy, and he feels truly at home for the first time in his young life. As their relationship deepens, the trio fights to preserve the land they love. Can they stay together and keep Jasper Spring safe from outside forces? 'Jasper Spring' is a heartwarming tale of a couple that experiences trials that would test any marriage, and the boy who brings them back together again. Hughes renders Alice and Tucker's characters in a nuanced and sympathetic manner, with their plight moving the most hard-hearted reader. This is the first novel for Hughes, a Colorado native who moved to a homestead in the Black Hills of South Dakota with his wife and son. His love for training border collies inspired his description of Tommie, Tucker and Alice's beloved border collie.
