Two sisters try their talents at iPop

Two sisters, Kelsey Tripp and Gabrielle Doughty are trying to raise money to pursue a chance to audition in front of hundreds of agents in California this July. Their goal is to raise approximately $6,000 for airfare and the stay in the hotel that includes the convention, workshops and auditions that they will be attending. Once there, the pair will be going from audition to audition trying to catch the eye of one or more of the hundreds of agents that will be in attendance.

Poetry Month Rockland

Written by Katy England

ROCKLAND The coastal town of Rockland is well known for its vibrant visual arts community. But what Poet Laureate of Rockland Carol Bachofner wanted to do was highlight the art of poetry as well. Four years ago, she brought the idea to the local library staff, and Poetry Month Rockland was born.

'It is the one written medium that will connect with a wide range of people's emotions and life experiences,' said Bachofner. 'It's kind of a small taste, like going to a buffet of life: you get a little bit of emotion that you don't touch on an everyday basis. Loss. Or the joy you feel when you connect with nature. The pride you feel in your children. There are a lot of little emotions that can get encapsulated in poetry. It is also a way to connect with the dark areas in our lives that we don't want to deal with in too big of a bite.'

Poetry Out Loud

Written by Katy England
10 Maine Students compete in State Finals at Gracie Theatre

BANGOR Bards used to be big deals. They held court with kings and queens, spoke many languages, and could recite verse and stories from memory. They were highly regarded, valued, and sought after. And for some reason, that regard as faded with time. There is a disconnect between the written word and the audience of today, and poetry in particular seems to have fallen from grace.

LEWISTON/AUBURN - The recent Broadway hit, 'Time Stands Still,' makes its Maine premiere March 15-24 at The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn's Professional Theatre. Intelligent, witty and thought-provoking, 'Time Stands Still' explores the romantic and professional relationship of a photojournalist and a war correspondent hoping to make a difference in the world by traveling to the hotspots of global conflict.
