“Insects of Whitefish Dunes” Hike

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Whitefish Dunes State Park

Hike leader: Dick Smythe

Meet at the Nature Center in the Park. Park sticker required.

The weather both before and during the walk as well as the environment will determine what you may find. Hope to find: butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, insect larvae; signs of insects: Ant lion depressions, galls, spittle etc.; and plant “bugs” of various kinds, perhaps a praying mantis.

Dick started collecting feathers and insects and watching birds before entering kindergarten. In college he majored in biology, then in graduate school obtained a PhD in entomology. Dick spent his entire professional career in the research branch of the US Forest Service, and for nine years was a research entomologist studying subterranean termites. For the last 13 years he was Director of soils, atmospheric sciences, water, fish, and wildlife research.

CANDIDE

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Third Avenue Playhouse


A Comic Operetta
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Richard Wilbur, John Latouche, Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler

Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein,  CANDIDE  is a witty and wacky satire of an operetta.  Based on Voltaire’s 1759 novella of the same name,  Candide  takes the audience on a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as it clashes with a series of absurdly unfortunate events. The young and naïve title character is betrothed to the Baron of Westphalia’s beautiful daughter Cunegonde, and along with the maid Paquette and Cunegonde’s brother Maximilian, they all subscribe firmly to the doctrine that has been instilled in them by their teacher Dr. Pangloss: that everything that occurs is for the best, no matter what.  They soon find out that isn’t always the case.
 
Directed by James Valcq
Musical Director:  Adam Baus
