NYC musician/composer, Thomas Kozumplik
( 8 p.m. )
PYS Fringe opens its doors this summer and fall to the sublime (Pitchfork Media) music of cross-over indie artist, Thomas Kozumplik. Over a 3-month residency, Thomas will present a series of new works for TommyTom s Time-Machine - a hybrid, electronic and acoustic set-up created by the artist, as well as music by Loop 2.4.3 and Clogs. Performances occur the first Saturday of each month, with the next event being October 5, 8 p.m. Tickets are suggested donation ($10) at the door. TommyTom's Time-Machine is a performance vehicle that integrates ancient instruments and the human voice with vintage electronics and futuristic soundscapes. Kozumplik routes a sophisticated system of microphones and electronic hardware to Chinese drums (fitted with real skin heads), Tibetan bells, antique cymbals, and African log drums to create a reverberant and stimulating dreamworld of rhythm and color. He uses vocals, steel drum, keyboards, and the latest sampling technology to add melody, harmony, and dramatic narrative. The Portland residency provides an intimate environment for audiences to glimpse the creative process, pregnant with energy and possibility, as the artist forges new ground. PYS Fringe hosts this residency in an effort to foster creativity and bring community together for art and performance in downtown Portland. About the Artist: Thomas Kozumplik is a composer/performer and co-founder of Loop 2.4.3, Music Starts From Silence, Clogs, and the Yale Percussion Group (directed by Robert van Sice). He was a long time member of the Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble (classical, jazz, and world music), the Ron Parmentier Trio (modern and free jazz), and Uncle Jimmy's Dirty Basement (theatrical/multi-media rock and roll). His performances have been called "dazzling throughout" (Mojo, UK), "sublime" (Pitchfork, USA), "smart and engaging" (New York Times, USA), and "the hit for me" (composer Terry Riley via the New York Times). Saturday, October 5, 8 p.m.Suggested Donation at event: $10.

TAM - This Wonderful Life
( Varied )
This winter, Steve Murray's adaptation of Frank Capra's holiday classic, It's a Wonderful Life, returns to Theater at Monmouth. With its hilariously touching message of hope and love, This Wonderful Life reminds us of the power of perspective, family, and community just in time for the holiday season. After his acclaimed performance in 2012, audience favorite, Mike Anthony returns to reprise more than two dozen iconic characters from the beloved film. Anthony embodies Clarence the Angel, Mary, Old Man Potter, and the rest of Bedford Falls' finest citizens, while also serving as narrator, offering amusing commentary on George Bailey s journey to discover that the actions of one person really can make a difference in the world. This humorous adaptation celebrates the warmth of the season and the belief that hard work, fair play, and love of one's family and community is truly its own wonderful reward. Regarded as a holiday classic around the world, Frank Capra's 1946 film It's a Wonderful Life is based on Philip Van Doren Stern's 1939 short story The Greatest Gift. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence. Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. It's a Wonderful Life was nominated for five Academy Awards and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 Best Films Ever Made. This Wonderful Life features Mike Anthony as narrator and all the inhabitants of Bedford Falls and beyond; directed by Dawn McAndrews with set and lights by Jim Alexander, stage management by Kathleen Nation, and sound design by Rew Tippin. This Wonderful Life is sponsored by TexTech. Performance calendar: PREVIEW 11/28 at 7:30 p.m.**; OPENING 11/29 at 7:30 p.m.; additional performance dates 11/30, 12/1, 12/5, 12/6, 12/7 at 7:30 p.m.; 11/30, 12/1, 12/7, 12/8 at 1:00 p.m. Ticket prices range from $20-$30. For calendar and reservations, please contact the TAM Box Office at 207.933.9999 or visit www.theateratmonmouth.org. **Thanksgiving Night Performance, All Tickets $10.

ME State Museum - Maine Voices in Civil War Series
( 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sat 10-4 p.m. )
Maine State Museum Opens New Exhibition: Maine Voices from the Civil War. Museum's Commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War Features Many Artifacts on View for the First Time; Free Museum Admission All Day. Saturday June 29, 2013 marks the opening of the Maine State Museum's newest exhibit, Maine Voices from the Civil War. Organized to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the exhibit's opening also coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, fought from July 1 - 3, 1865. Maine Voices from the Civil War draws almost exclusively from the extensive collections of the Maine State Museum, notes Museum Director Bernard Fishman. These collections include thousands of letters, documents, diaries, sketches, paintings, flags, and other objects from the turbulent Civil War period. Museum Chief History Curator Laurie LaBar chose the objects because they highlight historic events or themes from a Maine perspective. We are also pleased to feature many items that will be on exhibit for the first time. Over 70,000 Mainers from every corner of the state and every walk of life, representing more than 10% of the state's whole population in 1860, fought in the Civil War, says LaBar. The voices of these Maine people will be heard in Maine Voices from the Civil War through the letters they wrote to loved ones and the diaries they kept. The objects and photographs carried, used, and made by Maine soldiers and their families will also be featured, as they tell of wartime experiences, hopes and fears, and prejudices and heroism. The exhibit's documents, objects, and photographs reflect the political climate of the day and how Mainers viewed and experienced the war in all its complexity, glory, and horror. The exhibit will have a web presence including photos of artifacts, full transcripts of the letters quoted in the exhibit, and brief biographies of the soldiers and civilians whose thoughts or possessions are featured. The museum has also published a companion volume, titled Maine Voices from the Civil War and authored by Laurie LaBar. Available exclusively in the Museum Store, the book includes objects and stories from both of the Maine State Museum's Civil War exhibits: Maine Voices from the Civil War and To the Highest Standard: Maine's Civil War Flags. Maine Voices from the Civil War will remain on view until spring 2015. With this exhibition, the Maine State Museum joins 22 other museums and historical societies in Maine s Civil War Trail, a statewide collaborative effort to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. The Maine State Museum, located at 230 State Street in Augusta, is open from Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, contact the Maine State Museum at (207) 287-2301 or visit the museum s website: www.mainestatemuseum.org.

Winter is Coming. Which means... Kringleville! This year, Kringleville has a new location! Come join the holiday tradition, and meet Santa this year inside downtown Waterville's REM Forum in The Center, Mrs. Claus may even be reading some stories for you while you wait! And all this starts with the annual Kringleville Parade on November 29. Dear Friends of Kringleville, Welcome to our 2013 Kringleville.com website. A whole year has passed since I last saw so many of you at my little cottage in Castonguay Square. For the last 43 years, it has been my honor and distinct pleasure to be with you during the Christmas and holiday season, and I look forward to another great season coming up. Yes, my friends, my Elves have been hard at work in Downtown Waterville, Maine, making sure my visit with you will be extra special this year. Some wonderful changes will be happening to make your visit with me more comfortable and special in 2013. This year, all of you will be able to visit me in the REM Forum at The Center (in the building formerly known as Stern's). My new home away from home will be in the front window of The Center. This will be reminiscent of my old house from the 1970's, when passersby were able to see children and families visiting with me. Although steeped in tradition, I do believe there is a time for change and improvement. I truly believe this new space will be just as wonderful an experience. We will still be located in the center of town, but this year there will be many wonderfully fun activities for everyone to experience and see while waiting to visit with me. Best of all, this will allow everyone to have a magical time at Kringleville while remaining warm and dry. We are hoping this new opportunity helps with the excessive wait times we ve had these last couple years as well. Nothing else will change! Our friends form Central Maine Photography will once again be taking photos. Mrs. Claus will even have her own weekly visiting hours at Kringleville. Your Friend Forever, Santa Claus. Santa's Visiting Hours: Kringleville 2013 Schedule: Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elves will be accepting visitors from November 29, immediately following the Parade of Lights, through December 22.
