In ISHMAEL, a country schoolteacher signs on to a whaling trip with a captain he’s never met.  From the original text of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, this play conjures a funny, thoughtful and harrowing tale of one man’s drive to see the world.


Lead actor, Jack Weston, is the husband of local, Mary Ficke, a 1977 Falls High School graduate.

The Hunts
With a harmony-laced take on alt-folk that’s both breathtaking and sweetly ethereal, The Hunts are a Chesapeake, Virginia-based band made up of seven brothers and sisters who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives.  They taught themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums—then started experimenting with songwriting.

Rhythmic Circus "The Holiday Shuffle"
Don’t miss out on a wildly-imaginative, “not-so-silent night” the whole family can celebrate together.  A perfectly un-traditional holiday experience for the entire family — Four world-renowned hoofers and a swingin’ seven-piece band inject the signature Rhythmic Circus style of rapid-fire tap into upbeat holiday classics.

Tuey Wilson has always had a passion for physical skills. He grew up skiing, skateboarding, waterskiing, and anything else that satisfied his self-described personality: “introverted show-off.” He learned to juggle in eighth grade from his older brother, but didn’t take it seriously until he was a senior in high school, after a friend let him borrow some professional juggling equipment. His life has never been the same!

Sam Miltich brings greater awareness, tolerance, and education focused on mental health issues through the lens of his own life experience and music career. Sam uses his personal story of recovery and management of his own condition to help inspire light and hope for a meaningful life. Sam speaks about jazz as an American art form and profiles one of its greatest practitioners, Thelonious Monk, to illustrate how the story of his life and music has influenced Miltich’s art and aided his personal recovery.
