Lookout: Watercolorists host show in Newbury

A group of local watercolorists will hang an exhibit of their work at the Newbury Town Library. The show, which opened yesterday, continues through June 1.

The public can attend an opening reception with the artists tonight from 7 to 9 in the library’s meeting room.

The featured paintings include landscapes, seascapes and still lifes.

‘Sing-along-a-Grease’ comes to Newburyport

“Grease” is the word at the Firehouse Center in Newburyport tomorrow.

After last winter’s blizzard forced the cancellation of “Sing-a-long-a Grease,” the interactive show will go on. Audiences are invited to come to the Firehouse tomorrow, beginning at 7 p.m., to watch the famous movie on the big screen.

Similar to other interactive shows, such as the “Sing-along-a-Sound of Music” that came to Newburyport last year, the festivities include a free goody bag and assistance by the show’s master of ceremonies who will offer some tips — such as how best to hand-jive — while also directing the audience as they sing along to the popular lyrics and comment along with John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and the rest of the T-Birds and Pink Ladies.

A costume competition will be held, so participants should come dressed in their best 1950s, Rydell High School garb, from poodle skirts to powder pink bomber jackets, chiffon scarves and skinny ties.

Tickets are $24 for adults, $22 for seniors and students. To purchase, call 978-462-7336, or go online at
