What do you wish for?

Do you base our choices on what you want, or what you think you're supposed to want? Let yourself feel what you feel and want what you want, THEN engage your mind in the process. The best wishes are born from your heart.

by Jane Austen, adapted for the stage by Donald L. Hardy

Playing through August 26
in two parts - see website for detailed schedule
Cue Productions Live, 1835 Colfax Street, Concord
Part 1: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/246153
Part 2: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/246157

“Join us once again for Jane Austen's enduring tale of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage among the landed gentry of early 19th century England, a show Charles Jarrett called ‘...a melded work of translational genius.’ and ‘...a stunning production.’

This revival of last year's world premiere four-act adaptation, created specifically for Butterfield 8, is once again presented in two parts. Based on audience feedback, there will be two opportunities to see the production as a double feature - both parts on the same day!

The Mission of Butterfield 8 Theatre Company is to provide audiences a fresh take on classic plays, and foster the creation of new works.

Our Vision is to present audiences with examples of both ends of the theatrical spectrum: new productions of classic works, focusing in particular on text-driven plays (such as the works of Shakespeare), and new works devised by the company or written by local playwrights.  Our work often examines perceptions of gender, both within the context of the play and the larger context of society as a whole.  We strive to create an immersive environment, believing the audience’s experience starts when they buy the ticket, and shouldn't end when they leave the theatre. We honor that the audience has come for a live theatre experience to engage with a story or an idea; to be taken on a journey. This is our responsibility, and our craft.”

San Jose Pride
Saturday-Sunday, August 18-19
Discovery Meadow, 180 Woz Way, San Jose
see website for detailed schedule and ticket information

“Equality for Everyone

40 years ago, in 1971, a few dozen people organized and congregated for the first Gay Rights rally in San Jose. The following year, the first gay newspaper, Lambda News, began to promote the event. In 1976, hundreds would gather for the first official Gay Pride Festival, held at St. James Park in downtown San Jose, featuring political speakers, community booths, and local entertainment. In 1977, the first Gay Pride Parade kicked off what had become the yearly San Jose Gay Pride Festival.

The 80s gay movement named Stockton Street home of San Jose Gay Pride. In the years following, many gay-owned businesses began to spring up in this quiet west-downtown neighborhood, creating one of the first gay communities in Santa Clara County. This Rose Garden neighborhood offered a familiar and safe place to gather, socialize, and live. Prior to its current location on The Alameda, Stockton Street was also home to the first Billy DeFrank Center.

As the city continued to grow in the 90s, gay culture started to show itself in the mainstream, and attendance began to increase. Soon the yearly celebration outgrew the Stockton Street area. In 1995, after receiving an offer from the City of San Jose to return to Downtown, the Pride Parade and Festival was relocated to its current home in Discovery Meadow Park on San Carlos Street. With year-round support from hundreds of community volunteers and sponsors, thousands from near and far continue to gather annually to celebrate San Jose Pride, our diversity, and our community.

This year, we celebrate unity, community, partnership and Equality for Everyone!”

Beach Clean-Up
with Community Seed
Saturday, August 18, 12:00-3:00PM - last beach clean-up of the year
Bonny Doon Beach, Bonny Doon Road at Highway 1, Santa Cruz
(see website for directions)

“We meet on the third Saturday, April - August from Noon to 3:00PM, and in September we meet at 9:00AM to Noon for Coastal Cleanup Day. Don't miss another opportunity to serve your community and your planet. (Not to mention socialize and have fun!) We'll provide the bags if you will do your part and help us fill them. Bring your drums, songs, chants and food to share. As the cleanups progress, we'll also post stats about what we've been picking up, so you can see the difference we make.

Bonny Doon Beach is known for its beautiful large cliffs and powerful tide. It is also a favorite nighttime gathering place for many people. Unfortunately, many of these visitors bring in cans, bottles and other trash. Wood pallets are often burned here leaving behind sharp nails in the sand, and broken bottles that get thrown into the fire.
I am very pleased to say that over the last several years, a visible difference has been made in the amount of trash that we find on the beach. I am sure that our further efforts will continue making a difference.

Please Bring:
Leather gloves if you have them.
We will supply bags for nails, glass, and trash.
Bring a picnic lunch, or snacks to share
Your own water supply
Be advised that there are NO POTTIES AVAILABLE.
Come prepared.”

Americana Singer-Songwriters

Daniel Paige will be making a highly anticipated return to the Bay Area music scene after following a rather crooked path that included facing down cancer and then becoming a Bay Area acupuncturist. It’s been over 10 years since Daniel and his band, The Beggars Trail, played their last show at the Freight and Salvage, but always in the background he continued to write and record his music - devastatingly original songs that are both personal and timeless. His songs paint poetic and impressionistic pictures saturated with the American West.  With guitar and voice that deftly ranges from the darkly sublime to back-porch playfulness, Daniel stakes a unique place in the crowded world of singer songwriters. This is a rare opportunity to hear his new collection of songs, along with old favorites.

Aaron Calvert is an Oakland, CA musician who has been writing and recording music for 20 years. His band Winfred E. Eye. has a large local following, and has released 5 recordings and toured the U.S.A. This will be Aaron’s first time exploring his work in a solo show fashion (he dreams of someday having a residency in a hotel once a month). His songwriting, guitar playing, and singing can be heard in full band form by visiting the Winfred E. Eye website.  This will be a special intimate chance to hear his work played solo.  Daniel and Aaron with close this show with songs played together.

Ticket includes admission to the Garden before the show. BYO picnic and drinks welcome.”

“Standing under the moon, staring up into infinity... how many times have I rooted here... dreaming... transfixed, gazing at the beauty of the heavens and contemplating the mysteries of the Universe? How many more moons will wax and wane above as I weave the web of my magical life below? Life is such a sacred journey! And this class is a journey into my personal philosophies and practices of witchcraft. The methods I share in this class come from my twenty years of experience in making magic that works for my own purposes, and for the good of the world.

This class is a year and a day training in witchcraft, employing my methods. Suitable for beginners on the path, but also satisfying for advanced practitioners who are curious about new perspectives and practices. Be prepared to laugh, to explore your own magic with affection and humor, to wield your power mindfully, and to open to the wonder and adventure of life as a witch.

Who is OwlSnake?

Born into a long lineage of Medicine Men/Women, Spiritual Healers, Seers, and Shamans, on both her maternal and paternal ancestral lines, she was first called to this sacred path at the age of 4 years old from her Great Aunt. She was chosen to continue the family tradition of Spiritual Medicine work, some would call Shamanism. Through the years she would experience many of life's challenges and growth opportunities that have allowed her to learn and experience firsthand some of the greatest issues that plague this world today. From those experiences, along with her direct connection with Great Spirit, Guides, Angels, and Ancestors, OwlSnake has awakened into being a compassionate healer that is willing to be used as a ‘Hollow Bone’ for Spirit to assist all those that seek healing and inspiration on their journey.”

Join us afterwards at the Jupiter Pub at 2181 Shattuck Avenue in downtown Berkeley.
The particular styles and dances taught vary from year to year. If you attended last year, come back for something new!

Workshops for 2012 will be held on the following dates (all are Tuesdays beginning at 7:30PM):

August 28
September 11
September 18

Come and learn the basics of Morris Dancing at a series of free workshops in Berkeley. Each Tuesday we will teach a different variation and begin at the beginning, so come to as many as you want.  No partner needed; this is danced in a group rather than with a partner.

Morris Dance is a traditional English performance dating back hundreds of years, typically done in the spring by a team of dancers and musicians who have practised together over the winter months.  Berkeley Morris was founded in 1977. We perform throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Our team members cover a wide range of locations, professions, ages and genders.”

Generally we'll start each meeting with a specific topic to get the discussion rolling along, but after we get started it'll be rather open ended with the participants dictating where the discussion will go.

We hope you'll join us.

No donations required, heck, if you show up I just might buy you a cup of coffee.

If you've got questions, I might have answers. Email me (Jason) at panmankey@gmail.com
