Photo album: ‘Jesse’ reunion party at the NAG theater

jesse_tn The musical comedy/melodrama Jesse opened last night at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater. A number of those involved with previous shows (1976, 1977, 1986, 1994, 2001) were on hand for a little post-show reunion party.

See the post “Jesse” Rides Again on the NAG 50th blog for the complete history of the play, sponsored this year by Hvistendahl, Moersch, and Dorsey.

NAG 50th joins the blogosphere and the twittersphere

NAG 50th sshot Northfield area organizations are increasingly seeing the advantages of setting up blog sites (a website with regular pages but built with a blog platform) for special events (eg, ArtSwirl, JuneBug).

The latest is the NAG 50th Blog, "Celebrating 50 Years of the Northfield Arts Guild." Of course, they’ve also joined the twittersphere (twitter.com/nag50).

Perry’s new book, Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs and Parenting, is out.  Local author Tom Swift (right photo) was on hand to help with on-site book sales.

Jerry hates Twitter and Facebook but Michael apparently sees merit in them. Follow Michael Perry on Twitter and visit his Facebook page.

Photo redux: NAG’s Auction for the Arts

edvolta4 The Northfield Arts Guild’s annual Auction for the Arts is tonight, 7 pm at the NAG’s Division Street headquarters. It’s a 1970’s theme with Mr. Ed Kuhlman doing the live auction Travolta style. “Learn to throw a pot and undulate your middle in a belly dance; try out some theater costumes or makeup while listening to strolling performers; play an ongoing ‘70’s trivia game while taking part in our silent and live auctions…”
