OLIVER — March 2016 to April 201
Oliver! A special exhibition hosted at the Dedham Community TheatreOpening Reception: March 3, 6pm to 8pm
Exhibition Dates: March 3, 2016 to April 30, 2016
What does grit look like … courage, bravery, strength of character? We’re paying tribute to Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist in conjunction with the Parish Players production of OLIVER! Dickens sets the innocence of childhood against the squalor and corruption of the city. He showed us what grit meant to him in his novel. We challenge you to define grit in your art… in a portrait of a hard scrabble city dweller? In the stark landscape of urban industrialism? Show us!
This show will be hosted in the lower gallery at the Dedham Community Theatre! 580 High Street, Dedham, MA. http://www.dedhamcommunitytheatre.com
This show is being produced in conjunction with the Parish Players’ newest production, Oliver!
The Parish Players is an amateur theater group consisting mostly of First Church members and friends. It started over ten years ago when one of the R.E. teachers, a drama teacher by profession, led her class in a production of “Sadako and the Thousand Cranes.” Many parents supported the production and found that they enjoyed working with one another and the kids in such a group effort. Two of those parents wanted to see this intergenerational fun continue so they created the Parish Players as an adjunct R.E. program.

We have a special photo entries by Dedham Resident and Physical Therapist, Cara Crisafulli. Cara has entered her photos from a recent medical trip to Guatemala. She found a company called Partners in Development. She decided she was going to help the people in need in Guatemala. Her church helped me pay for the trip. She loved being there and helping people. She took her pictures with Oliver! art show in mind and just so she could remember the trip.
