Teachers: we have daytime performances of Fahrenheit 451 on Sep.
27 and 28 at 11am, and a greatly reduced student group rate.
Bluebird Books Bus Days
The Bluebird Books Bus will be in front of the Shimberg Playhouse on Sundays Sep. 16 and 30 from 2–4pm for public enjoyment. There will be a selection of classical, counter-cultural, dystopic and banned books available. Visitors may even be treated to a gilmpse of typewriter work by a “captive poet!”
Bluebird Books is a literary-themed mobile project space housed in a converted bus – part bookshop, part art house; it’s a vehicle where readers of all ages can explore the written word. Donation-based sales of gently-used books, locally designed artist books, handmade notebooks and ephemera will support cultural events such as play readings, book-art exhibits, poetry readings, and bookmaking workshops for the community at large. At a time when public libraries and bookstores often struggle, Bluebird Books continues to celebrate the art of the book in all its forms.
Jobsite Producing Artistic Director David Jenkins offers that “this is a great way for us to continue to work with like-minded organizations in our community. We think this is a perfect partnership, and we hope that people will come down to the show early, enjoy the bus and a cold drink on a nice afternoon, and maybe even stroll over to the newly-appointed Curtis Hixon Park before the show.”
