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.

Life Aboard a Whaling Ship 
Performed by Anne Barrett

Tuesday, April 23rd @ 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in Dexter Hall

The morning of November 25th, 1856, Mary Chipman Lawrence set sail aboard the whaling ship Addison bound for the Pacific on a voyage that would last three and a half years. In this performance, Mary will bring forth from her meticulously kept journal, the joys and tribulations of life at sea with her husband, Captain Samuel Lawrence, and their daughter Minnie.

The sights and sounds of foreign ports and their inhabitants, the sailors’ sea shanties, the surprisingly robust social life amongst whaling ships, and the challenging everyday details, all will come to life as Mary takes you on a journey so real, you’ll feel the pitch of the ship and the spray over the rails.

Come join us as re-enactor Anne Barrett takes you through the adventures of Mary Chipman Lawrence.
