International film series features ‘Duma’ on Monday

LACONIA — The Laconia Human Relations Committee in cooperation with the Laconia Public Library offers the film, Duma, Monday, June 1 at 6:30 p.m.

Set in South Africa, Duma is an orphaned baby cheetah rescued by Xan and his father, Peter. Duma is found by the side of the road. His mother was killed by lions. Peter is reluctant to take in the cheetah, but finally relents if Xan will take care of him on their farm.

Over the years Duma becomes part of the family. They teach him to run by having him chase alongside Peter's motorcycle. Peter eventually has difficulty keeping up with Duma. The time comes when Peter tells Xan that Duma must be released in the wild before it is too late for him to adapt to his native habitat.

Difficulties come when Peter falls ill and there is a move to Johannesburg. It does not go well when they must take Duma with them. This becomes a story of their journey through Botswana to find a life for Duma in the wild.

The Laconia International Film Series is open free to everyone. Brief informal discussion follows the film. Light snacks are provided. Feel free to bring a cushion for comfort in viewing the movie.

Little Church Theatre is N.H. Mag ‘Editor’s Pick’

HOLDERNESS — The Little Church Theater of Holderness has been selected by the editors of New Hampshire Magazine as the "2015 Editor's Pick for Best Local Theater."

Located on the shores of Squam Lake, The Little Church Theater serves as a gathering place for creativity in the performing and visual arts that was built at the end of the 19th century by the Catholic Diocese of Manchester. Sunday worshipers could ride to the Sacred Heart Chapel aboard a ferry run by the Asquam Transportation Company.

In 2003, George and Austine Howard purchased the desanctified church and added a stage, theater lighting, and seating for 144 people.

Each summer The Little Church Theater continues its commitment to big performances of known and new theatrical works, children's workshops and presentations, visual arts, education for all ages, and cultivating sustainability.

The first play of the twelfth season will be the original piece, "The Salon," by Jessica Hoffmann Davis of Holderness. Additionally, the theater will hold its annual High School Art Exhibit, a cabaret night, Young@Art Performance Workshops, a Broadway review by Terminal Hip Dance Theatre, an appearance by Medium Cindy Kaza, the popular Neil Simon play "The Odd Couple," the musical comedy "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change," art workshops, and Project Greenway, a design competition which encourages recycling, reusing, and repurposing. The last play of the season will be the premier of "Questions in a Quiet Café," an original play by Lowell Williams of Nashua.
