A Classic Theatre’s “1984” at Lincolnville Museum

A Classic Theatre’s first production of the 2018-2019 season is the iconic “1984” adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall, Jr., and William A. Miles, Jr. Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 is a provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century. The society portrayed was unbelievable. Yet, today it might not be impossible after all if we’re not vigilant and aware. The play is directed by Margaret Kaler.

The Fall 2018 St. Augustine Record Fair, presented by local record store ToneVendor, returned to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Sunday, October 21, 2018.  On Sunday, October 21, music lovers and collectors were invited to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre to shop thousands of music-related items including new and used vinyl records, CDs, cassettes, posters, turntable equipment and supplies, memorabilia, collectibles and more. This year, over 25 music vendors from across the Southeast United States were on site, offering shoppers the chance to choose from nearly every type of musical genre to grow their collection. DJ sets by DJ Dorian Lopez took place throughout the day. Food and beverages were available for purchase from several on-site food trucks as well as the Amphitheatre Concessions. Fun activities for the entire family included the new Vinyl Care Clinic and the return of the popular “DJ 101 Session for Kids.” Hosted by DJ Dorian Lopez, the “DJ 101 Session” is a 30-minute tutorial on how to DJ. After the tutorial, this hands-on event provided the opportunity for kids of all ages to test their newfound DJ skills on a real DJ setup! This event was FREE and opened to the public with free onsite parking. And Intuition Ale Works pints were just $2!

Promenade the Alcazar Anniversary Celebration

Upon entering the courtyard, guests enjoyed The Raisin Cake Orchestra and mini architectural tours of the historic Alcazar Hotel courtyard.  Wine tastings and food pairings (light hors d’oeuvres) were available throughout the museum’s four levels. Opportunities to engage with the museum’s collection and the rich history of the building further enhanced this milestone event. As an added bonus, a representative from NYC’s Museum Hack was in the galleries, interacting with guests in a fun and informative manner, creating an unforgettable evening.

Those who participated in the evening’s activities were eligible to win a Viking Cruise for two to a European destination.  This 8 day Viking River Cruise includes a river-view stateroom with deluxe accommodations, guided tours led by expert, English-speaking guides, all onboard meals, wine, beer, and soft drinks with onboard lunch and dinner service, visit(s) to UNESCO site(s), all port charges and free Wi-Fi.

Several newly restored exhibition spaces highlighting the museum’s permanent collection were unveiled as part of the museum’s evening activities.  Many items currently in storage were on view for the first time as part of the new exhibits.

The evening culminated in the Historic Pool and Mezzanine areas with additional food and wine. Light hors d’oeuvres were served throughout the event. It should be noted that this event was not a sit-down dinner.  New York’s Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra gave a special performance in the Historic Pool area. The Dreamland Orchestra is best known for performances at high-end events including the Cannes Film FestivalThe Manhattan Cocktail Classic, and the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island in New York City.  Arenella created the orchestra, and the lawn party, to fulfill his lifelong fascination with times past, and he transcribes all of the orchestra’s repertoire by hand.
