Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis @ Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis
Dec 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

As Dickens wrote, the ghosts of Christmas are really the past, present and future, swirling around us in the dead of the year. They’re a reminder that we’re all haunted, all the time, by good ghosts and bad, and that they all have something to tell us. Winter may seem like a quiet time, but it is actually filled with bizarre tales and stories of cannibalistic spirits, Krampus the anti-Santa Claus, stories of little people, werewolves, witches, people being buried alive, and numerous other Holiday traditions for the darkest days of the year. Sip a cup of cocoa or cider and join us for chilling and mysterious folklore perfect for this time of year, sponsored in part by the Hiawatha Public Library.

 

For over two decades Chad Lewis has traveled the back roads of the world in search of the strange and unusual.

Not Another Christmas Letter @ Old Creamery Theatre Main Stage
Dec 13 @ 7:30 pm

Book, Lyrics and Additional Music by Paul Cozby. Music and Arrangements by Laura Berquist.

An original musical comedy that celebrates everything that drives us crazy about Christmas… and why we love it anyway!

Theatre Production: The Wolves @ Armstrong Hall: Plumb-Flemming Black Box Theatre
Dec 13 @ 7:30 pm

By Sarah DeLappe, directed by Katy Hahn. Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

“The scary, exhilarating brightness of raw adolescence emanates from every scene of this uncannily assured first play by Sarah DeLappe.” — The New York Times

“The Wolves is a delightful meditation on society, sex, and soccer … DeLappe’s dialogue is hilarious and idiosyncratic, moving swiftly from gross-out humor to pain […] She offers us ninety minutes in a smart, sympathetic, female world. It’s a patch of Astroturf I would gladly set foot on again.” — The Village Voice

Saturdays at the Stanley: Get Cozy at the Stanley @ Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
Dec 14 @ 2:00 pm

Put on your comfy clothes and snuggle up. Join us for an afternoon of hygge, the Danish word for coziness, comfort, and well-being, especially important in the winter months. Director Lauren Lessing will guide visitors through some of the coziest works in the collection to help us embrace the comforting possibilities cold winter afternoons can offer.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.
