Boston Musical Theater Performance
A Turn in the Weather is Boston Musical Theater’s new show, taking a look at the American Songbook from a new angle. Sun, rain, fog, wind, snow – all have been used to illustrate the trials and tribulations of falling in love. Either “It’s a Lovely Day,” or it’s “Stormy Weather,” we’re either “Singin’ in the Rain” or it’s “Too Darn Hot.” We are sure to sing a few of your favorites, a few you haven’t heard in years, and maybe even one or two songs you’ve never heard before. And since we’re coming to you, you can just say “Let it Snow!” since we’ll be there, “Come Rain or Come Shine”! BMT’s core group is comprised of pianist/ director Dan Loschen, soprano Mara Bonde and tenor Christian Figueroa.

WISE Program: Conspiracy Culture and Hollywood from the Red Scare to Watergate
In this course we examine an earlier era when conspiracy thinking was on the rise – the late 40s to mid-70s.We look at the role Hollywood films played in reflecting, and in some cases spreading conspiracy ideas. We will consider many of the conspiracy themed films from these years, among them Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Manchurian Candidate, and All the President’s Men. INSTRUCTOR: Gordon Arnold is the author of several books about popular culture and U.S. society. He is a Liberal Arts professor at Montserrat College of Art where he has taught Sociology and film history for over thirty years. All Southgate residents are welcome to join the class free of charge!
Art Matters - animals in art - wild & domestic
Humans are the only animals that communicate with pictures. But we Humans love animals, and we especially love art about animals. Wild or domesticated, beasts of burden or sport, we have a special relationship with the animal kingdom and depend upon them for the quality of our own existence. Join us for a journey around the world and throughout history to appreciate how connected we are with animals and how daily they improve the quality of our own lives.
We feel fortunate to live in a community where the Residents are friendly and the staff greets us by name.
