Cost: $275

Elizabeth Smart, international child abduction advocate and New York Times best-selling author, will be the keynote speaker for Child Rescue Coalition’s (CRC) fourth annual “Eat, Drink and Be Giving” Gala. Proceeds from the evening will enhance Child Rescue Coalition’s technological developments, increase law enforcement training and rescue thousands of children from sexual exploitation and abuse.

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Despite this traumatic experience, she has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and national legislation. The founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, Smart has also helped promote The National AMBER Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. She chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, “My Story.” In addition, she and other abduction survivors worked with the Department of Justice to create a survivors’ guide, entitled, “You’re Not Alone: The Journey from Abduction to Empowerment.” Her most recent book, “Where There’s Hope,” is both an up-close-and-personal glimpse into her healing process and a heartfelt how-to guide for readers to make peace with the past and embrace the future.

Sponsored by TransUnion, the evening will celebrate law enforcement officers’ successful utilization of Child Rescue Coalition’s Child Protection System (CPS) Technology, with an elegant dinner, awards presentation and exciting live and silent auctions. To date, CRC’s CPS Technology is used free of charge by more than 11,000 law enforcement officials in 50 states and 90 countries and has been instrumental in helping to put an end to child sexual abuse. Child Rescue Coalition has assisted in the arrest of over 11,000 child predators and the rescues of over 2,500 abused children in the last five years.

“She plays the hell out of the guitar” – Matt “Guitar” Murphy

Rachelle earned a bachelors degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Miami. With all of these influences, Rachelle developed her own unique finger-style approach to blues rhythm and lead guitar playing. After college, Rachelle became known in Miami for her unique style and was cast in an indie movie, taught guitar for National Guitar Workshop, and worked on developing guitar methodology.

Her style eventually brought her to the attention of other blues artists. She worked with and toured as a guitarist with artists like Super Chikan, Albert Castiglia, Grady Champion and Ray Drew. After honing her skills as a side-woman, Rachelle stepped out on her own to front her own band. Since then, Rachelle has played around the world and she continues to grace the stage as one of the blues’ most original performers.

Rachelle’s band features AJ Kelly (bass), Raul Valdes (drums), Allen Paul (piano), and special guests. The Funky Biscuit is at 303 SE Mizner Blvd #59, Boca Raton, FL. Reserved seat tickets are $10-$20; General admission $15 the day of the show. Visit funkybiscuit.com or call 561-212-7115.

Market Analysis
In industries from agriculture to environmental science, biotechnology plays an important role in improving industry standards, services, and developing new products. Biotechnology involves the spectrum of life science-based research companies working on transformative technologies for a wide range of industries.
The global biotechnology market is expected to reach USD 727.1 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The emergence of certain key themes in the biotechnology market is expected to drive growth in this industry to a lucrative extent.
The biotechnology sector in Spain continues growing year after year. To a large extent, this is due to its transversal character, because more and more companies from different sectors incorporate biotechnology activities to their products and services
There has been a growing increase of the turnover of biotechnology companies in the Spanish GDP. And that evolution has been constant, even in the years of the crisis. As evidence we have the values of 2014, year when that economic figure stood at 10.35%, and 2008, when biotechnology just supposed 2.98% of GDP. The value of 10.35% has even equalled digits of tourism in the country, one of the pillars of the Spanish economy.
This type of biotechnology comprises approximately 50% of all biotech companies in Spain. These companies are mainly engaged in products for human health, not only with regard to drugs, but also products and services related to molecular diagnostics, both to treat and to prevent disease.
Currently, Spain ranks as the second country with the highest number of biotechnology-related companies in the world, only behind the United States. In addition, Spain is leader in personalized medicine and in the development of innovative drugs for the treatment of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, autoimmune and infectious diseases, ranking among the top ten European countries in drug development.
The topics of the Conference will truly reflect the current and future trends in on Biotechnology The Congress will cover a cover a broad spectrum of Plant and Agriculture Biotechnology, Genetics and Molecular Biotechnology, Nano Biotechnology & Biomaterials, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Cancer Biology and Immunology, Environmental Biotechnology, Biotechnology in Health Care, Animal Biotechnology, Marine Biotechnology, Stem Cell Biotechnology, Advances in Biotechnology, Food Biotechnology, Biosensors and Biomarkers, Industrial and Microbial Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering and r DNA Technology, Bioremediation and Biodegradation, Biotechnology and Bioprocess Engineering, Chemistry & System Biology, Chemical Biotechnology, Biotech Companies and Market Analysis.

Back by popular demand, Canada’s multiple award winning string slingers SULTANS OF STRING bring their genre hopping musical passport to Delray audiences.

For the past 10 years, 3x JUNO Award nominees and triple Canadian Folk Music Award winners Sultans of String have thrilled audiences with their global sonic tapestry of Gypsy-jazz, Spanish Flamenco, Celtic, Arabic folk, and Cuban rhythms, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity.

They’ve been celebrating this milestone decade of music-making with a digital and vinyl release, aptly titled ’10’ (featuring re-mastered cuts from their 6-CD catalogue).

Folk Radio UK recently described their music as “an enthralling, adventurous celebration of the power music has to transcend geographical and cultural boundaries, and Sultans of String wield that power with grace, eloquence and spirit.” Indeed ’10’, is more than a global sonic tapestry. It is a musical promise that embraces differences while finding common ground across culture, land, and time. While the album treks across all kinds of musical terrain, the fertile soil beneath each track is fed by hope unhindered and freedom found.

At the core of the band’s sound is Queen’s Diamond Jubilee recipient Chris McKhool’s fiery fiddle, melded seamlessly with founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s (Jesse Cook) rumba rhythm. Together their musical synergy create Sultans of String’s signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar. Added to this rich foundation for the show is in-the-pocket bass master Drew Birston (Chantal Kreviazuk).

ROSE: An intimate Portrait of Rose Kennedy, by best-selling author Laurence Leamer, will kick-off the inaugural 2017-18 South Florida Season from Forum Productions, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Theater Center NFP, on November 29 at Mizner Park Cultural Center.

A special performance of ROSE on Tuesday, December 5, will benefit the Unicorn Children’s Foundation, a Boca Raton-based, international nonprofit organization dedicated to building communities of acceptance, support and opportunity for individuals and families challenged by special needs and neurodiversity. This performance will feature a special V.I.P. ticket with a Pre-show Champagne Reception and a show-only ticket.

ROSE, presents an intimate portrait of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Camelot’s “queen mother,” as she retraces the rise and fall of her great family. Set in 1969 at the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port compound, one week after Teddy Kennedy’s infamous car accident on a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Mass, Rose reflects on her life and her family’s triumphs and tragedies.

The play is based on never-before-heard interviews conducted by Robert Coughlan, the ghostwriter of Rose Kennedy’s 1974 memoir, and compiled by distinguished Kennedy biographer and Palm Beach resident Laurence Leamer. A renowned Kennedy expert, Leamer has penned three best-selling tomes: “The Kennedy Women: The Saga of an American Family,” “The Kennedy Men” and “Sons of Camelot.”

ROSE is directed by revered Chicago director Steve Scott and stars Linda Reiter, a Chicago theater veteran who originated the role at The Greenhouse Theater and recently won a Jeff Award for her portrayal.

ROSE, by best-selling author Laurence Leamer, will kick-off the inaugural 2017-18 South Florida Season from Forum Productions, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Theater Center NFP.

ROSE, presents an intimate portrait of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Camelot’s “queen mother,” as she retraces the rise and fall of her great family. Set in 1969 at the Kennedy’s Hyannis Port compound, one week after Teddy Kennedy’s infamous car accident on a bridge in Chappaquiddick, Mass, Rose reflects on her life and her family’s triumphs and tragedies.

The play is based on never-before-heard interviews conducted by Robert Coughlan, the ghostwriter of Rose Kennedy’s 1974 memoir, and compiled by distinguished Kennedy biographer and Palm Beach resident Laurence Leamer. A renowned Kennedy expert, Leamer has penned three best-selling tomes: “The Kennedy Women: The Saga of an American Family,” “The Kennedy Men” and “Sons of Camelot.”

ROSE is directed by revered Chicago director Steve Scott and stars Linda Reiter, a Chicago theater veteran who originated the role at The Greenhouse Theater and who’s currently nominated for a Jeff Award as best actress for her portrayal. Her numerous credits also include the television dramas Chicago Med (NBC), Chicago PD (NBC) and The Beast (A&E). Her voice can be heard in over 30 episodes of The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas (Falcon Picture Group) and she has received 13 Jeff Award nominations (Equity and non-Equity) and garnered six non-Equity Awards.

Cost: Free

Forum Productions, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Theater Center NFP, is seeking actors and actresses to portray the lead and supporting roles in Truman and the Birth of Israel, a world premiere play by Chicago playwright William Spatz. Auditions will be held on Friday, September 29, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Mizner Park Cultural Center, 201 Plaza Real in Boca Raton. The production will make its debut on March 21, 2018 and will run through April 8, 2018. Rehearsals start on March 4.

From humble beginnings as a poor farmer, soldier and failed businessman to the unimaginable: president and thrust headlong into global turmoil, Truman and the Birth of Israel tells the real story of how one Missouri man’s unlikely rise to power changed the future of the Jewish people forever. The show is directed by Clayton Phillips and produced by Forum Productions, the highly acclaimed comprehensive stage and theater company based in Chicago. The company has produced/co-produced 17 plays including the well-received Churchill and Solo Celebration!, a series of one-actor plays all staged at the Greenhouse Theater in Chicago.

Actors and actresses (including understudies) are being sought for the following roles:

HARRY S. TRUMAN: (Equity/Non-equity); 50s – late 60s, 33rd President of the United States; Proper and plainspoken but with a temper, Missouri Midwestern drawl with a blunt, yet folksy disposition.

CLARK CLIFFORD: (Non-equity); Early 40s – mid 50s; A lawyer and close friend of Truman’s, handsome, fit, calm and sophisticated.

MELVYN BELLI (Non-equity): Late 30s – 50s; An attorney for the defense who is sarcastic, aggressive and incites provocation.

EDDIE JACOBSON: (Non-equity); 50s – 60s; A close friend of Truman’s; in real life paunchy and balding, soft-spoken, under-educated, comes across as an awkward country fellow from Missouri but his easygoing personality makes him a good salesman.

BELLA ABZUG: (Non-equity); early 30s – early 40s; Truman’s attorney, an unmistakable New Yorker, born of Russian Jewish parents, with personality galore. Not a shrinking violet, though she’s both advocating for and attacking the former President of the United States.

AL SCHWIMMER: (Non-equity); 40s – 50s; Witness for the defense who is a handsome and commanding presence – forceful and confident.

Auditioning candidates should have a one-minute dramatic monologue and prior to the audition will be given a section of the script to be performed. For an appointment, please send a headshot and resume to wmspatz@gmail.com.
