Albert Einstein - Relatively Speaking
Tuesday, February 26th @ 6:30-8:00 pm in Dexter Hall

In this one-hour interactive performance, actor and storyteller George Capaccio invites you to enter the boundary-breaking universe that is the mind of Albert Einstein. You will discover that time and space are inseparable, that time actually slows down the faster you go, and that if you could travel at the speed of light, time would actually stop!

But there’s a lot more to the story than Einstein’s insights into the nature of reality. George focuses on the great scientist’s very human qualities, including his sense of humor, his fondness for jokes, and his trials and tribulations as a family man.

As part of the show, you’ll time travel with George on the trajectory of Einstein’s life — from lowly patent clerk in a Swiss office to world-class physicist.

Friday, March 29th @ 6:30 pm in Dexter Hall

Spend an evening with America’s premiere Robin Williams tribute artist, Roger Kabler. You will feel that you are in the presence of one of the funniest and most heralded comedic icons of the 21st century. Robin was not only a wonderful actor and stand-up comedian, but a philosopher and humanitarian.

The show you will see is funny, poignant and sometimes just a wild ride through the mind of a lovable madman. Robin seemed to be teetering on the edge of childlike innocence, and if you never had the chance to see him in concert, now is the time.

Tickets are $5.00 in advance; $10 at the door. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Charlton Library.
