The Great Globe Itself: A world-premiere play from Great Lakes Theater Festival. Cleveland, 1936: One young man’s magical experience performing on the stage of a replica Globe Theatre on the shores of Lake Erie marks the inception of the modern resurrection of that historical play house on the Thames. What must one man give away to keep what he has created? From Shakespeare’s London to Cleveland and back again, what’s past is truly prologue in this imaginary tale of three Globe theaters, inspired by true events and the Bard’s final glorious gift to the theater, "The Tempest." This one-hour touring play, written and directed by Cleveland Heights resident David Hansen, is appropriate for all ages.

Permaculture from the Ground Up. Presenter Mari Keating will define and apply the term "permaculture" into theoretically manageable bites and techniques appropriate to small-scale dwellings and yards typical of urban/suburban lots. Attendees are invited to discuss possibilities for implementation on their own properties. Participation in all three sessions (the program continues April 16 and May 14), is recommended to extend brainstorming and design time.
