Kids Halloween Festival at Stage Fort park a monster bash #gloucesterMA

Mayor Romeo Theken and friends, Gloucester 2021 Halloween Festival at Stage Fort Park was a smash. Congratulations to the party planners, Roseanne Cody, Jamie Margiotta, volunteers, generous sponsors and partners. All of Stage Fort Park was in use on this beautiful autumn day. I forgot to take a picture at the dog park but it was busy and festive, too.

Enjoy a few snapshots of the Gloucester Halloween Festival Stage Fort Park 2021. How fun to see not one, not two, but three tractor hayrides looping Stage Fort Park.

The YMCA of the North Shore Theater Company:

Now Offering Theater Training & Performance Opportunities at the Cape Ann YMCA

A Place and  A Purpose

Announcing professional theater training for young people ages 5- 18 at the Cape Ann YMCA taught by Gloucester native and award winning actress Heidi Dallin. Theater at the Cape Ann YMCA kicks off with a  Holiday Delights Performance Workshop during which student actors can learn the basics of professional theater as well as  be part of a Cape Ann holiday tradition.

The 7 week  session culminates in a workshop performance of scenes from Holiday Delights for family and friends at Ames Hall in Salem.  Set in Gloucester, Holiday Delights is a festive evening of stories, music and movement recounting the special traditions that other cultures and families experience as seen through a young child’s magical journey on Christmas Eve to discover what is really important during the holiday season.

Theater training at the Cape Ann YMCA provides young people an outlet to nurture their creative potential while developing self-confidence, communication and teamwork skills as well as introducing them to the skills necessary for professional theatre.

For the first week only: 5-9 year olds will meet Friday, October 29 from 4-6 pm for a skills workshop and intro to the play and 10-18 year olds will meet Saturday, October 30 from 10 am to 12 pm  for a skills workshop and intro to the play. Please note the workshop meets Fridays, 4pm-6 pm and Saturdays 10am -12pm. However, student actor schedules will vary according to their  roles and the scenes being rehearsed. 

All participants must wear sneakers to each session. The workshop performance of Holiday Delights will take place at 2 pm on Sunday, December 12 at Ames Hall in Salem.

This Is For the Ladies! Heated ORORO Jacket Available!

Whenever I wear my heated vest, I get comments (especially from women) who are intrigued by the heating element of the vest. It’s battery powered, provides heat front and back and I wear it throughout the spring and fall. However, I’d been wishing I had such a jacket and now Ororo offers a heated fleece jacket! Admittedly, this was Facebook clickbait that worked faster than anything else I had been mildly tempted by. I have ordered my heated fleece jacket (complete with battery…double check that if you are ordering) and will keep you posted but I am certain I will be thrilled.

Here’s a link to shop. There are also heated socks available, just FYI. This is just a recommendation, I am not receiving any benefit from sharing this info with you. I just love my heated outerwear and thought you might too.
