Rotary Club of Rockport Presents: Living the Island Life, A Musical Comedy
Saturday, January 19, 2018 | 7 PM
Sunday, January 20, 2018 | 2 PM
Rockport Middle/High School Auditorium
Rockport Rotary is presenting the first-ever original musical comedy about living here — on this side of the bridge! Don’t miss LIVING THE ISLAND LIFE — a new musical comedy that follows a family of six (including a large dog named Kitty) from Buffalo on vacation in—they think—Rockport, Maine. They land, instead, on Cape Ann and learn about life on our side of the bridge through eleven locals’ colorful interpretations of “island” life and its people.
In between uproarious laughs, the players sing very familiar musical tunes—with all-new lyrics. A grand showcase of community talent and local heroes will add to the audience’s delight.
TWO SHOWS: Saturday, January 19 at 7:00pm and Sunday, January 20 at 2:00pm. Come laugh off the January cold with LIVING THE ISLAND LIFE!
Featuring the talents of Jeff McKeen, Wendy Betts, Guy Parsons, Emily Marques, Kathleen Morgan, Bob Ellis, Sue Bonior, Andy Heinze, Jack Reed, Chas Kreis, Gordon Baird, Evelyn Reed, Carolyn Howard, Derek van Gulden, Anne Hyde, and Frances Fleming.

This is one of my boys’ favorite events of the year. We weren’t able to squeeze it in this year, but it gives me the excuse to share the video of them tearing up the car show a couple of years ago.
It’s the Biggest Auto Show in New England… and the perfect place to browse hundreds of the newest vehicles! Located at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in the Seaport District, the New England International Auto Show is the premier showcase of the newest model year imported and domestic vehicles — cars, vans, crossovers, hybrids, light trucks and sport utilities – cars to suit every budget and lifestyle. Factory and dealer representatives are on hand to answer your questions in a no pressure environment, and with your favorite car lines all under one roof, it’s easy to compare prices and features, saving both time and money.
So come sit in the cars, pop the hoods, inspect the trunks, kick the tires. The New England International Auto Show is great entertainment for serious shoppers, car buffs and the entire family!
