‘Peter Pan’ at Firehouse Sunday
The Methuen Ballet Ensemble will return to the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport on Sunday to present “Peter Pan,” the tale of the boy who never wants to grow up, and his adventures with The Lost Boys in Neverland, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook and the Darling children.
The ballet performance begins at 3 p.m. Tickets are $22. To purchase, call The Firehouse box office at 978-462-7336 or visit www.firehouse.org.
Author talk at Emma Andrews
Rowley author Constance Johnson Hambley will speak at The Emma Andrews Library in Newburyport next Thursday, April 18.
The manuscript for Hambley’s first novel, a thriller called “The Charity,” sat in her drawer for 15 years before she made a move last year to self-publish it. She will read from her book and discuss the process she went through, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
The library is located at the corner of Marlborough and Purchase streets. It is free to attend these sessions, but space is limited. To reserve a seat, call 978-358-8097.
