Please join NOFA-NJ at the beautiful Firefly Farm in Hopewell, NJ for a grafting workshop with Tom Molnar, PhD. Dr. Molnar is an Associate Professor in the Plant Biology Department of the Rutgers University School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. Our host, Tessa Desmond, is a farmer and a scholar. She is a Lecturer and Associate Research Scholar in American Studies at Princeton University, where she teaches courses on food politics, agrarian thought, racial justice and multiethnic literature.

During this workshop, we will be learning the basics of different grafting methods and diving deeper with some hands-on work. Participants will graft established plum trees and work with apple rootstocks and scions. Each participant will take home a grafted apple rootstock for planting. Materials will be supplied. The workshop will be followed by an optional potluck dinner at Firefly Farm. Those wanting to stay for the potluck are asked to bring a side dish, salad, or dessert.

Titanic, Kelsey Theater, Mercer Community College

Friday April 20, 2018
8:00 PM

Titanic, Kelsey Theater, Mercer Community College, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, 609-570-3333

Set on the ocean liner RMS Titanic, which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912, the haunting story of the great ship Titanic is transformed into a riveting musical that examines the lives of its passengers in the nights leading up to the ship's fateful encounter with an iceberg. Not to be confused with the blockbuster film, this epic musical follows characters named for actual cast and crew members (unconnected with the tale of Jack and Rose of movie fame.) Playful Theatre Productions will win your heart with compelling characters and moving personal stories, but the uniqueness of TITANIC is that the central character in the drama is the great ship herself. You won't want to miss - the boat on this one!

Friday April 20, 2018
8:00 PM

American Repertory Ballet returns to McCarter Theatre with a triple-bill program of critically-acclaimed works. The program begins with the much-loved There is a Time, a deeply evocative work by José Limón, a true pioneer in modern dance and choreography. Limón’s classic work is based on Ecclesiastes 3 and evokes rich feelings from the audiences as it dances its way through the time-worn words familiar to all of us. Sea Shadow, choreographed by Gerald Arpino, is, as described by The New York Times’ Anna Kisselgoff, “his neo-romantic tale of love between a mortal and a supernatural with contemporary naturalness.” The evening concludes with Rite of Spring, a ballet by Martin, inspired by revolutionary works that the legendary Ballets Russes brought to America in the early 20th century, showing how the relationships of men and women transcend time.
