Abenaki Ski A Thon held Jan.25

WOLFEBORO — The inaugural Abenaki Ski-a-Thon will be held on Saturday, January 25 at 4:30 p.m. at Abenaki Ski Area.

The event will serve as a fundraiser for the Friends of Abenaki and construction of a new Ski Lodge at Abenaki Ski Area. The event is co-sponsored by Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation and the Friends of Abenaki.

The Ski-a-Thon will be a 60 minute endurance skiing event between up to 50 skiers and snowboarders to see who can ski the most laps in that hour. Participants may ski on any trail and the hill will be closed to the public during the event. Spectators are welcomed and encouraged to come cheer on the skiers during this exciting event. Prizes will be awarded for most laps skied and most money raised per lap. First place award for most laps will receive a $75 gift card to Ski Works.

The event is for ages 5 and older. Adults are encouraged to participate. The $10 participation fee helps cover costs of the event. Each person participating is asked to fill out a donor pledge form. Each pledge is per lap completed during the 60 minutes of the Ski-a-Thon. For example, a donor can pledge $3 per lap, and for each lap completed by the participant the donor would owe them $3. Thus, if 7 laps are completed then the donor would owe the participant $21. Each participant will need to collect at least 5 pledges of at least $1 per lap each in order to participate. Minimum pledge is $1 per lap. All donor pledge forms will need to be turned in on the day of the event. Participants do not need to collect money from donors. Friends of Abenaki will mail them their bill following the event. All proceeds go towards the construction of the new Abenaki Lodge in 2015.

The music will be cranking and food, burgers, hot cocoa and more will be available for sale. Young and old alike are encouraged to sign up to take part in this event that will also include the annual Christmas tree bonfire from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and will be followed by a Kingswood varsity hockey game from 7 to 9 p.m. To register for the event visit www.wolfeboronh.us/abenaki.

Kid's Theater Workshop to stage Xanadu, Jr., Announces Auditions


PITTSFIELD — Pittsfield Players Director Maye Hart has announced that this year's Kid's Theater Workshop will stage the 1980's phenomenon, Xanadu, Jr. Auditions will be held on Sunday, December 15 at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, December 16 at 4 p.m.at the Scenic Theater.

Auditioners will learn a part of a song from the show and some simple dance steps at the audition, and they will be asked to read from the script.
It's 1980 and the magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California, on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, as he strives to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time - the first roller disco. But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.

This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams, rolls along with a hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar which has been adapted for the MTI Broadway Junior Collection.

With songs including, "Magic", "All Over The World", "Suddenly", "I'm Alive", "Evil Woman" and "Xanadu", to name a few. This Jr. title still has all the fun and excitement of the original production. It's hilarity on wheels for children, adults and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.
The Kid's Theater Workshop is a program designed to introduce kids to performing on stage, and the show is presented to local schools in two matinee performances and three evening performances. This year, the show will run February 18 to February 22, right before winter vacation. The program is open to kids from age 8 to 18, and is for kids who want to be on stage and for kids who would prefer more technical positions, such as lights, sound, and stage management.
