Northern Essex holiday showcase Sunday

The Northern Essex Community College chorus will perform their annual holiday show on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the David Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. Admission is $5. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

The program will include a mix of holiday music from across a 600-year time frame.

“You can expect to hear everything from William Byrd to Regina Spektor. Mozart, Handel and Irving Berlin are also included in the program,” chorus director Alisa Bucchiere said in a statement.

‘All the King’s Women’ at Firehouse

The Firehouse’s new Senior Readers’ Theater program will stage a performance of Luigi Jannuzzi’s “All the King’s Women” at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Market Square, Newburyport.

The production, which is free to attend, will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday. It is the debut performance for the new arts education program, which is solely for community members age 55 and older. The program is funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. “All the King’s Women” consists of eight vignettes that explore the impact of Elvis Presley on culture and society, through his interactions with 17 different women.

“This play is more about the man himself, though, rather than his music, and shows the playful, generous and often warm-hearted side of the King — and how he touched the lives of countless individuals through his fame, his humor and his kindness,” organizers noted.

The play is directed by veteran actor Charles Van Eman. Participants include Victor Atkins, Terry Blanchard, Joyce Cejka, Maureen Daley, Evelyn Kovach, Arlene McCormack, Kathleen Moore, Gloria Papert and Ann Staffeld of Newburyport; Muriel Angelil and Susan Grilk of Amesbury; Gretchen Stone and Barbara Stygles of Salisbury; Janet Gillman of Seabrook and Roberta Low of Burlington.
