Meshuggah-Nuns! Brings Side-Splitting Laughter to the Coaster Theatre Stage this Summer

Submitted By: marketing@coastertheatre.com – Click to email about this post
MESHUGGAH-NUNS!
Written by Dan Goggin

DATES: June 28-September 1, 2024
TIME: All performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
TICKETS: $35 and $30. Tickets available online, at the theatre box office or by calling 503-436-1242.

The hilarious Meshuggah-Nuns! makes its home on the Coaster Theatre stage this summer. Opening Friday, June 28 and running for 27 shows through Sunday, Sept. 1.

Meshuggah-Nuns! is the fifth installment in the Nunsense series and follows the sisters of the Little Sisters of Hoboken on an all-expense paid trip on the “Faiths of All Nations” cruise. After a week at sea, the ship runs into a storm. Several people become ill, including all of the actors in the ship’s production of Fiddler on the Roof. (All except the actor playing Tevye, that is.) The captain of the ship, knowing of the sisters’ show biz savvy, requests that the sisters and Tevye put on a revue. The result: a hilarious musical celebration of Catholic and Jewish
traditions.

Meshuggah-Nuns! is directed by Patrick Lathrop and features Katherine Lacaze as Sister Mary Regina (Reverend Mother), Rhonda Warnack as Sister Mary Hubert, Rachel Stahly as Sister Robert Anne, Cathey Ryan as Sister Mary Paul (a.k.a. Amnesia), and David Sweeney as Howard Liszt.

The production crew includes Sondra Gomez (costumer), Mick Alderman (set builder/lighting
design), Juan Lira (set painter) and Nancy McCarthy (sound and light operator).

Tickets are $30 or $35; they can be purchased at the theatre box office (503-436-1242) or online at coastertheatre.com. The box office is open 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 12:30 p.m. to curtain on performance days.

Get tickets at link below:
www.northfork53.com/events/p/sunday-grief-salon-and-sauna-june-16th-10am-2pm

Join us for a healing Sunday Salon with therapist and grief work facilitator Joshua Lowe.

As we enter summer it feels good to lighten our spirits by releasing the weight of grief that many of us carry for ourselves and for the world.

This Sunday Grief Salon is a gentle intro to working with the ”5 gates of Grief” discussed in Francis Weller’s book “The Wild Edge of Sorrow”.

After a cleansing sauna and cold plunge (optional) and light brunch we will sit in circle and work with the sacred emotion of grief.

Northern CA based grief facilitator and therapist Joshua Lowe will be leading us through the 5 Gates:

First Gate: Everything we love we will lose.
Personal loss of loved ones, relationships, careers, loss of health. Here we are initiated into the medicine of vulnerability.

Second Gate: The Places that have not known love.
Parts of us that have been shamed, not allowed, or harshly judged. Here we are initiated into the medicine of compassion.

Third Gate: The Sorrows of the World.
Climate change, poverty, war and the collective pain of humanity.
Here we are initiated into the medicine of entanglement.

Fourth Gate: What you expected and did not receive.
Things we don’t realize we’ve lost, because we weren’t born into a village with full joyous welcome of our gifts.
Here we are initiated into the medicine of belonging.

Fifth Gate: Ancestral Grief
Unacknowledged and untended sorrow of those who came before us.Here we are initiated into the medicine of wisdom.

www.northfork53.com/events/p/sunday-grief-salon-and-sauna-june-16th-10am-2pm

This gathering is about sharing what is true for you, whether it’s tears, anger, numbness or fear. It‘s about authenticity and connection.

There’s no expectation that you express your grief in any specific way. It’s not designed to “fix or process” you.

We’re hear to listen and express gratitude and share your feelings and experience.

This isn’t a depressing event, it’s a joyful, life affirming one.

All of you is welcome to share, witness, and honor grief and joy.

About the facilitator:

Joshua Lowe is a licensed therapist, public educator, musician, and nature-oriented rites of passage and grief ceremony guide.

He brings 20+ years experience supporting others in transformational journeying and has supported teens and adults in various communities including high school, men’s groups, nature, prisons, and in the therapy office.

He brings a deep reverence for the power of grief ritual as a healing force and is humbled by the opportunity to support others in deepening their relationship to self and community through honoring and expressing grief and joy.

LNCT Wheeler Highway Clean-up

Submitted By: lnct@nehalemtrust.org – Click to email about this post
Join LNCT for our quarterly Highway 101 clean up event! We will collect litter along Highway 101, on both sides of Wheeler, between Paradise Cove and the intersection of Highway 101 and Highway 53. Trash on this stretch of highway washes into wetlands along the Nehalem Estuary, including wetlands protected and stewarded by LNCT; help us protect our valuable wetlands!

When: June 15th 9am-11am

Where: Meet at the intersection of Highway 101 and Hemlock Street.

We will provide safety vests, grabbers, and trash bags. Please wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves.

*Please note: Only persons 16 years of age or older may participate in an ODOT Adopt-A-Highway cleanup event.
