Fab 5 – November 1, 2018

Fab 5 – November 1, 2018

1. ‘Dancing Stars of Wilkes-Barre’
Local celebrities paired with professional dancers will face off on the dance floor Saturday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m. during ‘Dancing Stars of Wilkes-Barre.’
Presented by KISS Theatre in Joe Amato East End Centre, Wilkes-Barre, the show mimics the popular TV show, “Dancing with the Stars,” but with a local twist. Seven local celebrities will be featured in this year’s dance-off. TUX, the official mascot of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, will take to the stage along with Fast Freddie Fabbri, Kyle Reed, Anne E. Rodella, Bruce Lefkowitz, Kimberly McLendon and Ed Ciarimboli.
WNEP-TV anchor and reporter Julie Sidoni and Dave Reynolds, an associate professor of theater at King’s College and artistic director of Gaslight Theatre Company, will host the event.
A People’s Choice trophy will go to the dancing team that receives the most votes from the public, and a Judge’s Choice trophy will go to the team that receives the highest score.
Tickets cost $25 and $35 for adults and $15 for students and are available at dancingstarsofwilkesbarre.com.

2. Founders Art Exhibit
View the artwork of three former faculty members who helped found Keystone College’s Linder Gallery in the Founders Art Exhibit, now showing at the La Plume college.
On display until Saturday, Dec. 1, the exhibit is a part of a series commemorating Keystone’s 150th anniversary and features pieces from Karl Neuroth, Cliff Prokop and Bill Tersteeg. The three professors worked together to develop the art department and, combined, have touched the lives of more than 10,000 students.
The gallery is on the first floor of the Miller Library, and entry is free. For gallery hours or more information, call 570-945-8335.

3. ‘A Bad Year for Tomatoes’
Join Actors Circle as it presents the story of a television actress who, over her career, moves to a town to write her memoirs in “A Bad Year for Tomatoes.”
The show will take place at Providence Playhouse, 1256 Providence Road, Scranton, on Thursday, Nov. 1 through Saturday, Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. Directed by Art Walsh, the show stars Kelly Ann Walsh, Chris Eibach, K.K. Gordon, Carol Davis, Lorrie Loughney, Warren Cox and Justin O’Hearn.
In the play, the actress settles in Beaver Haven with the expectation that it will be a quiet place to write, but it always seems that someone is around to interrupt her.
Tickets cost $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and $8 for students. For reservations, call 570-342-9707 or email tickets@actorscircle.com. Visit actorscircle.com for more information.

4. A Taste of Greater Pittston
Spend the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 4, sampling food and drinks from local restaurants, breweries and wineries at A Taste of Greater Pittston.
Pittston Memorial Library, 47 Broad St., will host the event from 2 to 5 p.m. in its John P. Cosgrove Center.
Only 200 tickets will be sold and cost $30 in advance, available at the library.
In addition to the food and drink samplings, guests can enjoy such activities as basket raffles and entertainment by Mike Dougherty. They will be able to vote for the best red wine, best white wine and best brew.
All proceeds raised from the event will benefit the library. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.

5. ‘Nick and Ophelia’ 
Join Scranton Films for the premiere of its first feature film, “Nick and Ophelia,” on Friday, Nov. 2, on the second floor of the Marketplace at Steamtown, 300 Lackwanna Ave., Scranton.
The event will run from 6 to 9 p.m., with the film starting at 7. A question-and-answer session will follow the screening, and audience members can meet the filmmakers and Scranton Films team.
The movie falls into the genres of romance, drama and horror. Parental discretion is advised, as the film is not suitable for small children.
Vendors at the food court will be open to provide food and refreshments.
For more information about the event or Scranton Films, email scrantonfilms@gmail.com.

Day of the Dead in limelight at annual bonfire

Day of the Dead in limelight at annual bonfire

A fire will once again alight in downtown Scranton for the annual Bonfire at the Iron Furnaces.
On Saturday, Oct. 20, the eighth annual festival will continue its mission of celebrating different autumnal cultural festivals and will feature several activities, food and live music. Money raised from the event will benefit Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum in McDade Park, Scranton.
The festival will take place from 6 to 10 p.m., and the bonfire will be lit at 8. In addition to offering entertainment, the festival also serves as an educational and cultural event, honing in on a different culture each year. This year’s theme is the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos, or the “Day of the Dead.”
“It celebrates our heritage, our families, our ancestors,” said Alysia Scazafabo, one of the event founders who has stayed involved with it since its creation in 2011. “It’s very important to a lot of us.”
Like previous years, the event will be packed with things to do, but she said organizers have set it up differently so it has more space to accommodate the expected crowd. From face painting and music to food and tarot card readings, there will be activities for the entire family to enjoy.
Entertainment will take place on two stages as well as on the grounds. Symmetry Dance Company, Grupo Zona and Indigo Moon Brass Band will take the main stage. The Double “R” Twirlettes will return to the festival, too, accompanied by Scranton Black Diamonds Pipe Band.
The Crufeli Sideshow will perform a show featuring stilt walkers, fire breathers, acrobats and more on the Firebowl Stage, and Mariachi Tequila will provide entertainment on the festival grounds.
Guests can visit the festival’s cultural tent to enjoy hands-on educational activities and arts and crafts. The activities are sponsored by several organizations, including the Everhart Museum, Scranton Cultural Center at The Masonic Temple, the Greenhouse Project at Nay Aug Park, United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Bonfire Committee. The cultural center will have a selfie station where guests can take pictures with La Catrina to commemorate the event.

Some of the food guests can look forward to include barbecue from B3Q Smokehouse, Mexican cuisine from Tortilleria El Buen Amigo, desserts from the Sweet Lush Cupcakery and other dishes from Backyard Ale House.
A community altar known as an ofrenda for Dia de los Muertos will be created at the festival. Everyone is welcome to bring photos and favorite food and drink items of departed loved ones to put on the altar. The festival has had an ofrenda before but did not include it last year, entertainment coordinator Pamela McNichols said, and people missed it. The Greenhouse Project will provide marigolds, which are symbolic to the holiday, for the ofrenda.
Scazafabo said one of her favorite things about working with the festival has been seeing its growth. Attendance has risen from 400 in its first year to approximately 1,300 attendees in 2017, she estimated.
“It’s fantastic to see it grow the past eight years,” Scazafabo said. “It’s overwhelming.”
This year, students from West Scranton High School will help. Brian Murray, chairman of the planning committee for the 2018 festival, stressed how important community engagement is for the bonfire.
“Last year, we had some high school students that came down to volunteer,” he said, adding that the event “had a pretty profound effect on one of the students,” who left feeling like he had some ownership of the event after helping out.
Admission costs $20 at the gate and includes $5 in “Bonfire Bucks” for guests to spend on activities, food and drinks. Children 12 and younger accompanied by an adult can enter for free.
A of people say the bonfire is their favorite event, McNichols said.
“The bonfire is huge,” she said. “It’s the biggest bonfire you’ve ever seen.”
