Gardening
Millbrook: Cary Institute: For three years, Chris Woods traveled the world seeking out contemporary gardens and found fifty of the best. With wit and humor, he describes the most arresting features in public parks in exotic locations like New Delhi and Dubai, mission-redefining botanic gardens in Chile and Australia, and the most enviable details of lavish private estates and gemlike city yards. Throughout, he reveals the fascinating people, plants, and stories that make these gardens so lust-worthy.  Chris is perhaps best known for his work at Chanticleer, the acclaimed, 47-acre "pleasure garden" in Wayne, Pennsylvania, where he was director and chief garden designer for twenty years. Since then, Chris has held top leadership positions at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden, the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, Canada, the Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden, and the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society’s Meadowbrook Farm. He has received several major awards, served as a board member and consultant at key nonprofits in the garden world, and written several books. A book sale and signing will be held after the lecture. Advance registration is strongly suggested and space is limited. Free, 2 pm.   845.424.6500  https://www.gardenconservancy.org/open-days/open-days-schedule/digging-deeper-gardenlust-a-botanical-tour-of-the-world-s-best-new-gardens
Theater
Rhinebeck: Center for Perfroming Arts: Up In One Productions is proud to present Disney’s Newsies. Based on the 1992 motion picture, the Broadway musical hit features a score by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). Set in New York City at the turn of the century, and inspired by the real life “Newsboy Strike of 1899”, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. Timely and fresh, the fictionalized adaptation of Newsies addresses age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices and David-versus-Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment. Directed and choreographed by Kevin Archambault, music directed by Cheryl B. Engelhardt, produced by Diana di Grandi.Starring Terrence Boyer, Maria Coppola, Dietz Farcher, Brayden Giannelli, Mark Grunblatt, Jody Satriani, & Wendell Scherer. With Chris Backofen, Jordan Castro, Erin Hebert, Joe Felece, Howie Riggs, Ken Thompson, Jessie Truin & Thom Webb.
