Submissions for Hallowell's 250th Birthday
( 1:00-3:00 PM )
The Hallowell 250th committee is planning a Community Variety show to help celebrate Hallowell's 250th Birthday. We are looking for acts, amateur and otherwise, that would include performance art including songs, skits, dances, monologues, and poetry recitation. These should be: 1) something created related to any period of time in Hallowell; or 2) a song, reading etc. from any period, that may have been familiar in Hallowell or 3) a song, skit or reading written at any time that had a theme that ties into any period. For the latter, an example may be for the time block that contains the 1936 flood, a song about that flood from anywhere in the US or even floods in general could be considered as appropriate to that theme. People can submit material for others to perform if they do not wish to perform themselves. The Variety show will be presented July 12, 13 and 14th. If you have any questions, contact Richard Bostwick at email@example.com. Proposals are due April 7th and information should be sent to Richard Bostwick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Auditions - Later on in April, we will audition people and their acts, as well as auditioning for people to read written material. We will also audition for people to be readers to perform the readings selected to introduce and keep the theme of the period block. People doing monologues and skits may also be asked if they would like to be reader as well. The performers don t have to be from Hallowell, but the topic should be.

Hallowell Walking Tour "Museum in the Streets"
Tourists, history buffs or those looking for something to do can now enjoy the newest version of The Museum in the Streets. City Historian and others have put together 19 signs that are part of the tour. The tour, which takes about an hour, begins at the waterfront, heads up Winthrop Street. The bulk of the signs are in the heart of downtown along Water Street. The panels (signs) reveal stories, events and traditions that helped shape the area. Hall-Dale French students were part of the translation team that made French subtitles so the panels could be bilingual. Visitors to Hallowell can find maps of the city's Museum in the Streets at City Hall, KV Chamber of Commerce or the Hubbard Free Library. Other Maine communities with a Museum in the Streets include Augusta, Waterville, Thomaston, Biddeford, Belfast and Searsport.
