Cue Zero Theatre Company tackles some heavy material in its third and final mainstage production of the season, Next to Normal, which continues its run at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord Friday, Aug. The rock musical centers on a mother suffering from bipolar disorder and how her mental illness affects her husband and two teenage children as they struggle to maintain the suburban status quo.
It separates fiction from reality and finds the true grittiness [of mental illness] without overdoing it. The company decided to go with another show, but Pelletier said he knew he had to direct Next to Normal at some point in the future. The musical sheds light on the effects of living with bipolar disorder and living with someone who suffers from bipolar disorder; one day the mother tries to bleach the whole house and retile the roof while other days she cannot get out of bed and argues incessantly with her family, Pelletier noted.
Now, what can we do better? After five years of sporadic performances, the company held its first full season this year, which featured three mainstage productions, including Next to Normal, plus a series of staged readings of Shakespeare plays done in unconventional venues and a Laboratory Series, which included side projects like theater workshops and classes, small-scale performances and staged readings, and online content including a blog and podcast.

Hopkinton Fairgrounds, Kearsarge Ave. Ferns are under-rated and largely ignored by gardeners but should not be. They can add much to a garden.
There are just 28 common ferns in the book, and there are silhouettes of each at the beginning of the book. Imagine a frond of a fern that is all one big blade or leaf.
Then imagine taking scissors and cutting that blade into leaflets. That is Group 1, once-cut ferns. Group 2 includes ferns that are twice-cut, and then divided into two groups based on how the fronds stems are arranged, either in a vase shape or in a random arrangement.
And so on. There are five thrice-cut ferns, five ferns with three parts instead of one long blade, and one unique fern, the maidenhair fern which is unlike all the others. Pretty straightforward. Here are 8 common ferns you can easily learn to identify.
Group 1: Once-cut Christmas fern Polystichum acrostichoides. Unlike nearly all others, this fern stays green all winter, and has very dark green leaves. It grows in free-form clusters, and has simple leaves. Sensitive Fern Onoclea sensibilis : Light green leaves. It is very frost-sensitive, hence the name. Often grows in big colonies, either in sun or shade. Can be a pest in the garden as it spreads by root.
A big fern with fronds up to 5 feet, this will grow in wet or dry shade. When spores are produced, they interrupt the arrangement of leaflets with smaller spore-producing leaflets that are not like the other leaflets. But not all plants will have an interrupted section, so look at a colony to find some that do to confirm I. The little leaflets that produce spores get dry and turn brown in mid-summer.

Though the history of dragon boats dates back to ancient China, the sport of dragon boat racing has experienced a revival in North America since appearing at the Vancouver Expo in The aquatic sport will make its debut in Concord on Saturday, Sept. In addition to high school crew races, live music and Super Duck Boat Tours, the festival will be bringing in two dragon boats from 22 Dragons, a company based in Montreal and Burlington, Vt. Throughout the day, teams of 21 will go head to head to see who can paddle these behemoth boats the fastest.
Matt Robert, owner and founder of 22 Dragons, said dragon boat racing is a sport that almost everyone can take part in because the team with the most brute strength is not always the one that wins. The best strategy by far is timing and good synchronization. Visit mjwrabbit. See gatecitycorvetteclub. Concord Parks and Recreation director David Gill said the annual Black Ice Pond Hockey Tournament has been a huge success for fundraising and community building in the winter, and adding a summer event will help push the project forward.
He said the festival is a family-friendly event, and while young children will be better suited to watching the dragon boats as opposed to rowing them, kids can take part in a rubber duck race and ride aboard a Super Duck Boat Tour, which will be giving a historical tour of Concord.
The evening also includes raffles for prizes and a drawing, from which half the proceeds are donated to local charities. The races will be sprints of approximately meters and each race is expected to end within one minute. Once all of the head-to-head races are complete, Robert said, representatives from 22 Dragons will determine which teams will compete in the finals.

As an experienced falconer and co-owner of the New Hampshire School of Falconry, Cowan lets her bird and dog do most of the work when she goes into the field.
Cowan and her husband Jim have taught this style of hunting since they helped introduce a bill 25 years ago to legalize falconry in New Hampshire.
For the first time, the Cowans will be bringing along some of their birds to demonstrate what they do at the Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair in New Boston. At their school in Deering, the Cowans teach the art of falconry, which by definition is hunting using a trained bird of prey. To train the bird, Cowan said, the falconer and animal must spend an immense amount of time together. But once the falcon or hawk is ready to go on a hunt, Cowan said, the human can stand back and let the bird and dog work together.
The dog sniffs out game and flushes it out. The falcon quickly learns to follow the dog so it can swoop in and collect the hunted animal. Cowan said if the conditions are right at the fair in New Boston, she will conduct a flying demonstration with one of her birds of prey.
During a flying demonstration, the bird will. If she determines that the conditions at the fair would not be safe to do a demonstration, there will still be other ways visitors can interact with the birds.
In past years, the pulling competitions were relegated to tractors and small trucks, but this year, big rigs will be competing to see to can pull a heavy load the farthest. The fair has also expanded a series of agricultural talks and workshops led by local people with experience in various farming fields. Some of the topics for this year include beekeeping, raising pigs, farm work horses, dairy cows and other farm animals.
George said the fair is hoping to host a talk by a giant pumpkin grower to share some tips and tricks on how to grow a prize-winning gourd. Other attractions include live music from local bands, equestrian competitions, including a demonstration by the New Hampshire Mounted Cowboy Shooters, and exhibits featuring nearly every variety of livestock. Cowan said she is excited to bring her love of falconry to the fair for the first time. She recently retired from 16 years as the town clerk and tax collector in Deering and said she plans to spend her newfound free time working with the birds and sharing her passion with as many students as she can.
A harvest dinner will begin at 5 p. Admission to the fair is free, but a separate ticket is required for the dinner.
