FALMOUTH THEATRE GUILD PRESENTS: “JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR”

November 4, 2011

November 4, 5 & 6 AND 11, 12 & 13

Highfield Hall, 56 Highfield Dr, off Depot Ave, Falmouth

508-495-1878

Website: www.highfieldhall.org

Fri/Sat @ 7:30p.m. & Sun @ 2p.m.

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.

ROAD CLOSURES IN MASHPEE

November 1, 2011

The Cape Cod Times reports –

MASHPEE — Several road closures slated for the next few weeks are not expected to cause substantial delays for drivers, Mashpee Department of Public Works Director Catherine Laurent said.

Beginning this week, two intersections on Great Neck Road North will be under construction, and another road will close on Nov. 14, she said.

Across from town hall, the intersection of Collins Lane and Great Neck Road North will be realigned. Collins Lane will be closed to all traffic except residents, but should be reopened by the end of the week when construction finishes, Laurent said.

On Monday, the intersection of Great Neck Road North and Quashnet Road was closed, she said. Currently, Quashnet Road has two intersections with Great Neck that will be replaced by a single intersection in the same area.

Quashnet Road will not be closed during construction, Laurent said.

Neither construction project should cause severe backups on Great Neck Road North, she added.

Beginning Nov. 14, the public boat ramp on Mashpee Neck Road will be closed while workers complete stormwater and drainage improvements in the area. Funded through a Cape Cod Water Resource Restoration grant, the work aims to improve the nearby Shoestring Bay shellfish beds, which have been closed on multiple occasions, Laurent said.

The boat ramp will reopen for Thanksgiving weekend, Laurent said.

***Great Neck Road North is the road taken off the Mashpee Rotary which heads towards Sandwich (passes the 99 Restaurant & Cooke’s Seafood).  The closures appear to be at the end of the road where Great Neck Rd North meets Route 130/Main St.

GOOD MORNING!

November 1, 2011

Hello All,

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween yesterday!  We heard the towns who didn’t have power and/or were hit hard with snow postponed their Halloween festivities.  We are hoping those towns have their power restored soon! 

The weather here has been quite cold.  We have averaged in the low-mid 50’s during the day.  We even got a dusting of snow Saturday night, but rain washed away any evidence early in the morning.  Needless to say, anyone visiting the Cape should get their cold weather apparel ready! 

Even with the cold weather the resorts have been pretty busy!!  Captain’s Quarters has had about 20-27 occupied rooms per week out of 33 rooms!  Surfside was sold out on the weekend, and averages about 30 occupied rooms out of 57 total during the week!
