“So the shortest day came and the year died and everywhere down the centuries of the snow‐white World came people singing, dancing, to drive the dark away."
A poem by Susan Cooper
Come join us in celebrating the solstice season!
Decorate beautiful candles and listen to a heartwarming winter story before creating a splendid winter spiral to walk!
We will use colorful modeling beeswax to decorate candles (a wonderful holiday gift!). This is a celebration of carrying light within darkness, and sharing that light with others. Families are welcome (children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult). All materials, general merriment and wonder are supplied 1-3pm Dec 10th.
The wonderful instructors are Georgia Williamina Zildjian & Kelly Mirado Cutler
Georgia grew up along the coast of Maine. She is a playwright, dramaturg, actor, and teaching artist. She holds a BFA in Theatre Arts from Boston University’s College of Fine Arts, School of Theatre. She has taught theatre up and down the Maine Coast at Portland Stage, Ellsworth High School, The Grand Theatre, and in her home town of Castine. She is the founder of the Castine Arts Association’s Youth Summer Theatre Camp, which has run consecutively since 2010.
In addition to teaching theatre, she has worked consistently as a playwright, actor, producer, and dramaturg for numerous productions, six of her own creation. She is the co-founder and playwright-in-residence of Tandem Theatre Collective, a geographically separated, though aesthetically linked, group of artists dedicated to innovative methods of creating theatre and devising new works.
Kelly grew up on the coast of Maine. She studied storytelling, improv, stand up, and sketch comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC. Kelly loves creating opportunities for others to engage their imaginations and access their creativity through collaborative exploration of theatre arts. She has worked with Georgia Zildjian at Castine Arts Association’s Youth Summer Theatre Camp for roughly a decade and adored every wild moment of it.
