The Lookout: Local illustrator celebrates ‘monster’ release


Theater Workshop’s “Sweetly Ever After” continues the story of Charlie Bucket, who inherits Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory only to find himself in a fantastical and unpredictable world where rules and time are irrelevant. Newbury Elementary School teacher David Williams plays Wonka, joining a number of characters who are familiar yet fresh and new.

The show is written and directed by Stacey April Fix and features a cast of 78.

Show times are 7 p.m. on April 10, 11 and 12 and 1 p.m. on April 13 at Newbury Elementary School, 63 Hanover St.

Tickets are $10, $15 and $25, and reservations are recommended. Contact

Theater Workshop is also offering a scholarship to graduating seniors who are alumni of Theater Workshop and Workshop in the Woods.

The scholarship was created to continue Theater Workshop’s efforts to serve and support the members of the young creative community. The amount will depend on the success of the “Support Our Senior Class Front Row” ticket sales, which started this past fall and will continue during the spring production of “Sweetly Ever After.”

Applications are available at and are due by April 15.

Baseball-inspired art on display

Watercolors by Salisbury resident Joe Farnham are on display through the month at April at the Carry Out Cafe in Newburyport.

“Drawn to the Game” features vintage baseball imagery. Farnham was working as an advertising art director more than 30 years ago when he painted a watercolor of “Casey at the Bat.” It struck a chord that led to this collection.

A free reception will be held tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at the cafe, 155 State St. Stadium-themed snacks and beverages will be served.

Free tickets to Cantemus concert

The Cantemus Chamber Chorus is offering free tickets for its upcoming shows in Newburyport and Hamilton.

Thanks to grants from the cultural councils in Newburyport, West Newbury, Georgetown and Hamilton-Wenham, the libraries in those communities will each have 16 tickets available, for a total of 64 free passes.
