TUESDAY, June 25th at 7pm: MAKING SCENES at "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

A different kind of tour of Aoife Lorefield's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Project on LEA 2.  In the creation of the region, Aoife reflected many of the settings found in Shakespeare's play.

Tonight, Kayden, Aoife, Fayleen and Cale place the words of the Bard in those locations, as they read selected scenes at various locations throughout the region.  Slip on your walking shoes and be prepared for a Shakespearean story tour, and Kayden and friends "Make Scenes" on LEA 2

The story tour begins at

THURSDAY June 20th at 7pm: Monsters & Myth - HECATE pt1

"Death can be outwitted but never overcome"
Monsters & Mythology
HECATE pt1

Hecate, Queen of the Harpies. Sprung from the bowels of the Underworld, this leather-winged monster torments the enemies of Hades. Chief among these enemies are Orpheus, the poet whose songs call souls to life, Asclepius, son of Apollo and heir to that god's medical skills, and Telesphora, who possesses a healing touch. Each separately falls victim to Hecate's cruel schemes, but together they frustrate her efforts to deprive the mortal world of its two most divine practices, poetry and medicine. The tale of Hecate depicts a world where pain and suffering threaten human love, and where death can be outwitted but never overcome. It is also a world in which compassion undoes cruelty, joy supersedes rancor, and courage sustains human endeavors into death's mysterious realm. Here, then, are the great contraries of human existence -- encompassed in the world of myth.

WEDNESDAY, June 19th at 7pm: THE MENACE FROM EARTH

An encore 8 years in the making!  Derry McMahon, Bear Silvershade, and Caledonia Skytower come
together again to present Robert A. Heinlein's story of young love, life on a lunar colony, tourism, and taking flight in more ways than one.

Young love is often hard on those experiencing it for the first time. Take 15-year-old Holly, for example. A lunar colonist and aspiring starship designer, who has something of a crush on her closest male friend, Jeff, with whom she shares a particular passion: that of flying.

Another element to life on the Moon is that of tourism: playing host to “groundhogs”, as the locals call them, who like to visit the Moon. One such tourist is Ariel, a glamorous woman to whom Holly is assigned to as a guide.


It all goes well to start with – until Holly introduces Ariel to Jeff. To her dismay, Holly find herself facing The Menace From Earth: Jeff is quite smitten with Ariel. As her jealousy grow, so Holly starts to resent Ariel more and more – but what to do?

Presented, live on stream.

TUESDAY, June 18th at 7PM: THE PENDERWICKS IN SPRING Begins


Caledonia brings us to some old friends with a new adventure... Jeanne Birdsall's Penderwick Family.

Springtime is finally arriving on Gardam Street, and with it comes all the joyful chaos of the Penderwicks. The brood has grown to six with the addition of Lydia, the new youngest sibling, and there are surprises in store for all.

Some surprises are just wonderful, like Nick Geiger coming home from war. And some are ridiculous, like Batty’s new dog-walking business, which has resulted in her spending an inordinate amount of time with Duchess, a very fat dachshund, and Cilantro, a wrinkled shar-pei with a bark like a lovelorn tuba. Batty is saving up her dog-walking money for an extra-special surprise for her family, which she plans to present on her upcoming birthday. The timing is perfect: Rosalind will be home from college, Skye and Jane will put their bothersome teenage worries aside to celebrate, and Jeffrey, honorary Penderwick and Batty’s musical mentor, will be visiting from Boston. But when an unwelcome surprise arrives, the best-laid plans fall apart.

Filled with all the heart, hilarity, and charm that have come to define this beloved clan, The Penderwicks in Spring is about fun and family and friends (and dogs), and what happens when you bring what’s hidden into the bright light of the spring sun.

Caledonia presents, live on stream.

THURSDAY, June 13th at 7pm: HOWLING AT THE MOON - Stories & Poems of a Lunar Nature


“O, swear not by the moon, th' inconstant moon, That monthly changes in her circle orb, Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.” 

― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Okay, wrong Shakespeare play!

But why is the moon "inconstant", and what makes everyone from lovers to lunatics go a bit "loony" under it's cool lunar rays? Caledonia shares selected poem and stories to explore different views of the moon at Aoife Lorefield's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Project at Linden Endowment for the Arts Region 2, tonight.


TUESDAY, June 11th at 7pm: CRENSHAW Continues

What critics say about Katherine Applegate's Crenshaw: 

"... Applegate's prose is simple and poetic enough to appeal to literary adults, children who struggle with reading and just about everyone in between. And in “Crenshaw,” her human characters are everything the huge cat is not. Jackson is witty and wise and struggles against problems too big for him. His parents’ hardships are achingly real, but their love for Jackson is equally palpable. We love this intermittently homeless family — not because we pity them, but because we admire them.“Crenshaw” is not for every child. But if the reader can handle some tough facts of life, she will be richly rewarded. Not by the huge mammal. By the humans."

~ Adam Gidwitz, The New York Times

Caledonia continues Katherine Applegate's unforgettable and magical story about family, friendship, and resilience; proving in unexpected ways that friends matter, whether real or imaginary. Caledonia presents, live on stream.

WEDNESDAY, June 5th at 7pm: A THURBER SALUTE!

James Grover Thurber (December 8th, 1894 – November 2nd, 1961) was an American cartoonist,
author, humorist, journalist, playwright, and celebrated wit. His work as a humorist and cartoonist celebrated ordinary people as they faced the more comedic eccentricities and frustrations of everyday life.

Tomight, Kayden Oconnell and Caledonia Skytower read selections from three of Thurber’s most popular short stories. The first is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, written in 1939 and which is perhaps most famously associated with the 1947 film of the same name starring Danny Kaye, Virginia Mayo and Boris Karloff (there was also a 2013 film adaptation, but no-one betters Danny Kaye…). Also on offer are selections from his 1937 short, The Macbeth Murder Mystery, and his alternate history parody from 1935,  If Grant Had Been Drinking at Appomattox.

Presented Live.

TUESDAY, June 4th at 7PM: CRENSHAW Continues

Caledonia continues Katherine Applegate's unforgettable and magical story about family, friendship, and resilience.

He Surfs!  
He takes Bubble Baths!  
He chases frogs! 
He is a great big HUGE cat.

Crenshaw is not only very large, he’s both outspoken and imaginary. He has come back into Jackson’s life to help him. But is an imaginary feline enough to save Jackson and his family from losing everything? In a time when down-to-earth-just-the-facts Jackson is desperate to understand what is really going on, maybe a little magic will help him understand.

Author Katherine Applegate proves in unexpected ways that friends matter, whether real or imaginary. Caledonia presents, live on stream.

TEA TIME at Baker Street: "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"

Holmes & Watson continue to save the day!  


THIS WEEK: "The Adventure of the Illustrious Client"
Sir James Damery comes to see Holmes and Watson about his illustrious client's problem (the client's identity is never revealed to the reader, although Watson finds out at the end of the story; it is heavily implied to be King Edward VII). General de Merville's young daughter Violet has fallen in love with the roguish and sadistic Austrian Baron Adelbert Gruner, who Damery and Holmes are convinced is a shameless philanderer and a murderer.


The victim was his last wife, of whose murder he was acquitted owing to a legal technicality and a witness's untimely death. She met her end in the Spl├╝gen Pass. Holmes also finds out that the Baron has expensive tastes and is a collector and a recognised authority on Chinese pottery.Holmes's first step is to see Gruner, who is amused to see Holmes trying to "play a hand with no cards in it".

Da5id Abbot, Savannah Blindside, Kayden Oconnell, and Caledonia Skytower present the adventure, live on stream from the Seanchai Fireside Room.
