Join us for this important board meeting of the F-ARTS (Friends of the ARTS) as the group determines who will receive funding for a wide variety of unique, and strange, Twin Ports arts projects.
The F-ARTS board is comprised of artists from a wide variety of mediums: visual art, theater, film, performance art…even Dad Rock musicians are represented. Each artist will be delivering a distinctive proposal to the rest of the board in hopes of receiving a grant for their constituents.
There will also be a Special Mystery Dancer who will be attempting to get funds for the Dances-That-Are-Not-On-But-Are-Very-Very-Near-To-The-General-Vicinity-Of-The-Lakewalk. The stakes will be high because, due to budget cuts, only ONE project will receive that coveted F-ARTS funding. Which one will it be?
The Twin Ports Annual Board Meeting of the F-ARTS features the comedic and musical talents of Greg J. Anderson, Brian Matuszak, Kaylee Matuszak, John Munson, Nathan Payne, Cathy Podeszwa, and Cheri Tesarek. Music will be provided by Ben Gagne.

It’s a story almost too incredible to be believed, but it’s true.
This Tony Award-winning play is the true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. During the height of World War II in Germany, this 65-year-old transgender German managed to live openly as a woman under the noses of both the Nazi and Communist regimes.
Based on conversations with Charlotte, playwright Doug Wright wrote this Pulitzer Prize-winning piece, which also scored two Tonys on Broadway.

Calendar Girls is the hilarious and touching true story of middle-aged friends Chris and Annie who, upon the sudden loss of Annie’s husband, resolve to raise money to buy a new sofa for the family room at the local Yorkshire hospital. Their racy plan to raise the money involves them and fellow Women’s Institute members tastefully posing nude for an annual calendar.
The successful sales and media storm that follows puts Chris and Annie’s friendship to the test, while also proving “the flowers of Yorkshire are like the women of Yorkshire, the last phase of life is always the most glorious.”
