February Happenings

Looking for some music and dancing on the 18th? Then head over to The Crown & Anchor at 9 pm for “Iced Tea Dance” at Paramount, which will benefit Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund.

What better representative for the “month of love” than the America's original sexpot, Mae West? This February, the Provincetown Public Library invites you to their Wednesday night “Mae West at the Movies” series, to be screened at the Provincetown School Building on Winthrop Street, at 6 pm.

The line-up of classic films has been carefully selected by Marc Strauss, Professor Emeritus in Theatre and Dance from Southeast Missouri State University.. Professor Strauss will give a short presentation on each film, and host a question and answer session at the conclusion of each screening. All films will be screened at the Provincetown School Theater as part of the Provincetown Winter Wednesdays program. Coming up on February 8th is “I'm No Angel,” and on February 15th, it's “My Little Chickadee” from 1940, which features the once-in-a-lifetime teaming of Mae West and W.C. Fields!

Back at the Library, the UUMH Social Action Committee Film Series continues on Saturdays at 2 pm in February, to bring public awareness to social and environmental concerns facing the U.S. This film series takes a closer look at situations, events and data to help raise awareness of moral injustices that are happening here in America. When we understand what is happening, in our name, we can begin to address the issues, collectively. The movies are free.
On February 4th, there will be four short films – “Becoming American”, discussing health issues facing Latino immigrants; “Bad Sugar,” examining the connections between diabetes, oppression, and empowerment in two Native American communities; “Place Matters,” about how your address can be a strong predictor of your health; and “Collateral Damage,” which examines how natives of the Marshall Islands “pay” for globalization and U.S. military policy with their health. Following on February 11th is “Not Just a Paycheck,” which compares why layoffs take such a huge toll in Michigan but cause hardly a ripple in Sweden, followed by “Awake – The Life of Yogananda”

For the 7th year, the Provincetown Playwrights' Lab presents its 24-Hour Theater Festival, to be held at the Provincetown Theater on February 17-18th!
This year eight writers and eight directors will be chosen. Each writer/director pairing will then be randomly assigned 3 actors (total of 24). All participating artists will show up on February 17th at 5 pm for a brief orientation, selection of teams, scheduling rehearsals,unveiling of three “mystery props” and pizza. After the meeting, writers work to create a 10-page script. On Saturday the 18th at 7 am, teams of actors and directors begin rehearsals. At 7:30 pm on Saturday, the performances of the eight scripts will begin! After the show, there will be a short talk-back period and a potluck in the lobby! Admission to the performance is free.

Looking for some music and dancing on the 18th? Then head over to Crown and Anchor at 9 pm for “Iced Tea Dance” at Paramount, which will benefit Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund. DJ Maryalice will be your “record-spinner-with-the-mostest” for the evening! Admission is only $10, and helps to end LGBTQ youth homelessness.
