A Cherry Orchard in Maine...

  • Portland Ballet Studio Theater (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

An ancestral farm with a unique cherry orchard in mid-coast Maine is about to be auctioned off for tax debt, and the soon-to-be-displaced family and their friends are at loggerheads as to what to do – develop the land? Abandon the property? Throw a party and forget about it?  Twelve unforgettable characters come together to determine the fate of the cherry orchard, and in the process, find out where they fit – or don’t fit – in the changing face of Maine.

By MK Wolfe
From the Ronald Meyer translation of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard
Directed by Al D'Andrea

Portland Camera Club Annual One Shot Competition

Portland Camera Club Annual One Shot Competition

Come early to get a seat to the most creative and funniest photo competition in Maine!

This is an annual photo scavenger hunt of sorts for the clubs members to complete and compete in. Humor is a large part of the competition and to see what the makers come up with for the 16 different categories is a very creative process considering the confines that only 1 image can be made to submit for each category.

This is always a fun competition and the public is cordially welcome to attend this session for free. For more information, contact Mike Leonard at 207-210-4819 or visit portlandcameraclub.org.

Portland Camera Club: Annual Slide Show

Please join us as members of the Portland Camera Club present “slide shows” of their work, usually photos of a particular place or theme. We no longer use actual slides – it’s the digital age – so these are mini-movies assembled from still shots with musical accompaniment, usually 3 to 4 minutes in length. This is an opportunity to see some great photography as we present dozens of our members’ images in the space of an evening.
