This Is Our Youth

June 21, 2018 at 8:00 pm at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater
This is Our Youth: LAST WEEKEND TO SEE June 21-23 at 8:00 pm at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater.

This is Our Youth at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, THIS IS OUR YOUTH follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era.

Celebrate Provincetown’s unique heritage with food, dancing, food, games, workshops, food, concerts, parades… did we mention food? People come from around the world to remember the hard-working immigrants who built this town. Feel the sadness of a fado concert, listen to Portuguese poets and authors, dance the night away under the Bas-Relief tent, watch the Commercial Street parade, and cap it off with the 71st annual Blessing of the Peovincetown Fleet at the end of Macmillan Pier. Throughout the whole festival there will be some of the best food you’ve ever eaten, so this is one not to miss!

James Judd “Funny Stories”

June 28 at 7:00 pm at the Cabaret Room

Stand-up Storyteller James Judd is often compared to David Sedaris and Oscar Wilde as he shares his stories of “spectacular public embarrassments and utter failures.” Judd’s stories include battling a viciously competitive fifth-grade mean girl for the grand prize in The Book Report, and they affirm that part of being human is telling the stories that have happened to us, and even in the face of failure, it’s getting up and moving forward that matters.

Barbies Dreamhouse: Incidents and Casualties

Reception: June 22 and June 23, 2018 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Runs through August 2, 2018
Gary Marotta Fine Art at 162 Commercial St.

June 22 & 23, visit Gary Marotta Fine Art at 7pm for the artist’s reception of Barbie’s Dreamhouse: Incidents and Casualties. The show runs through August 2.

Artist Carola Doll says, “The Barbie doll was first designed in 1959, inspired by a visit to Switzerland by Mattel’s co-founder. There she saw a German doll named Bild Lilli. The doll was originally a sexy blonde comic-strip character known to be a “gold digger, exhibitionist, and floozy.” With this encounter, the idea of Barbie was born, and many a young girl’s life changed forever.”

Artist-grade wax crayon is used as a medium in order to tangibly symbolize childhood innocence and the insecurity of adulthood. A wide range of subject matter is presented in comical situations involving the absurd dolls and their plastic retro household. The purpose of these drawings isn’t to say Barbie is a good or bad role model. The intent is to use the dolls as symbols for the more depraved sides of humanity, with humor and a good dose of kitsch.
