PLYMOUTH — IMPACT, the children's theatre company of Jean's Playhouse in Lincoln, will present their repertoire of children's stories adapted for the stage at 2:00 p.m. each Thursday from June 25 through August 13. Performances will be held at the Silver Center for the Arts, Plymouth State University. The audience will have a chance to meet their favorite princess, bear, puppet, cat and all the other characters from the show in the lobby after each performance.
The schedule for 2015 includes:
June 25 Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Goldilocks is a curious little girl all alone in the forest...they are porridge-eating bears. BEARS? What could possibly go wrong?
July 2 The Pied Piper of Hamlin. Help! Our town is overrun with rats! A stranger with a magic flute saves the day, but what happens when the greedy Mayor refuses to pay the Piper?
July 9 Puss in Boots. The poor Miller's son receives a cat as his inheritance. He is very upset at first, but this is no ordinary feline...a purr-fect pet for a simple man.
July 16 Arabian Nights. Aladdin, Ali Baba and Sinbad the Sailor! Scheherazade, a clever girl, weaves magical tales of wonder and enchantment for 1001 nights...in only 45 minutes.
July 23 The Three Little Pigs. Straw, sticks and bricks...and one very hungry wolf. A hilarious story about brotherly love and the importance of building a solid foundation.
July 30 The Emperor's New Clothes. A terribly vain and foolish emperor demands the finest clothes in the land for a Grande Parade, and in the end, he gets what he deserves.
August 6 Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Don't be Grumpy, Doc! This Dopey story will make you so Happy, you'll never be Bashful again! Or Sleepy! Or even Sneezy (achoo)!
August 13 Pinocchio. Geppetto wants a son. Pinocchio wants to be a real boy. An evil fox, a carnival boss, a hungry whale and a classic story about the value of telling the truth.

MEREDITH — Potter Lars Turin will be Artist of the Month in June at the League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Fine Craft Gallery, 279 Daniel Webster Highway, next to Church Landing at Mill Falls.
A June exhibit, tilted Connections to Nature, will feature Turin's functional and sculptural pieces.
Turin's works-in-clay are inspired by his interpersonal relationship to self and others and from the forces within nature and the patterns that those forces create, especially those on the Seacoast. He uses a number of different clay techniques and processes to create his distinct textured pieces.
The public will have a chance to meet Turin at a reception at the gallery on Sunday, June 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. During that time Turin will demonstrate how he works, answer questions, and tell stories.
More information can be obtained by calling the Gallery at (603) 279-7920.
