While maintaining an architectural studio in South Beach for 24 years prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale about six years ago, Marcus continued to take photographs of the south Florida architectural environment. His practice currently specializes in historic preservation consulting. A native of Philadelphia, Marcus graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University and a Master of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Marcus joins historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey 4/8/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey on April 8
Thursday, 04/08/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature writer/historian John Bailey on the next April 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBailey.

Bailey is author of A New River Runs Through It, an exciting, comprehensive story of a river and the city that grew up along its banks. Beginning with the legend of how the river acquired its name, this narrative brings to life the story of the rugged men and women who settled along it and built the city of Fort Lauderdale into a world class international business and financial center. It ends with the latest events: the recent expansion of rail commuter service, the city’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic, and a look forward to our future. The book is available on Amazon and in signed editions at History Fort Lauderdale’s Museum Shop.

In 1946, at the age of nine, John Bailey arrived at the New River with his parents. He attended several of the area’s different schools – West Side, Davie, Naval Air, Central, and Fort Lauderdale High School. Through his various local teachers, Bailey developed an abiding interest in his home town. Many of his personal experiences of growing-up and living along the River are sprinkled throughout this book. His previous best selling history books include Sentinel of the Jersey Cape, The Story of the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape Island, The Jewel of the Jersey Shore and Juet’s Journal, Henry Hudson’s Explorations on the Half Moon.

Bailey joins Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors to History Fort Lauderdale will be required to wear a mask, have a digital temperature reading and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center will present Through the White Door, a documentary photo project by photojournalist Smiley Pool that portrays the interconnected human experience of families affected by HIV/AIDS, at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Blvd.) from April 8 – 30. The exhibition, consisting of 40 poignant images from South Africa, Romania, North Carolina, Texas and beyond, depicts the life struggles and triumphs of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS captured by Pool from his inspirational book of the same name.

The Through the White Door photography project by Pool spans over two decades following a remarkable group of people who faced the HIV/AIDS crisis head-on and saved a generation of children. The project began with two newspaper stories at the Houston Chronicle in the 1990s with the rest of the work completed on his vacation time for the 20 years that followed — around his staff photographer positions at the Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News. Over the years he continued to follow one of the first children in the world on a drug trial for highly active antiretroviral therapy until adulthood, and documented the formation and rise of the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) from the organization’s inception in Texas to what it is today – the largest provider of care and treatment for HIV positive children in the world.

The project culminated with an oversized hardcover book with 212 pages of his photography. Text for the book was written by Jessica Johns Pool, his spouse, who is a writer specializing in health care. Together, TTWD is their way of sharing the stories of the extraordinary and inspirational people they have met along the way.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center’s presentation of the Through the White Door exhibit is sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale and supported by the Broward County Cultural Council and Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

Junior Achievement of South Florida launches Girls Rule – one amazing initiative and two exciting virtual events that celebrate, empower, and inspire women and girls.

Girls Rule with Title Sponsor Comerica Bank and Presenting Sponsor Bluegreen Vacations, kicks off with The Girls Rule Launch Event on Tuesday, March 16, from noon-1:15 p.m. “We are bringing together today’s resilient and forward-thinking women together to connect around a common vision to transform and advance the world for future generations of women,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President & CEO.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network. Guests will be inspired by Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Her company is best known for its award-winning Hint® water, the leading unsweetened flavored water, with more than 150 employees and $150 million in sales.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

Breakout session topics will cover self-care, goal setting, financial wellness, self-invention, personal branding, making responsible choices, building positive relationships, self-acceptance, effective teamwork, the power of positivity and effective communication/public speaking.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

She has served as the national spokesperson for the “Girl Power” campaign, which was a youth empowering initiative run by the Clinton administration.

Raffle items will include a weekend in Broward County with hotel stays and dining (one entry for $25 or five entries for $100), and a basket of fun excursions (one entry for $100).

“‘Magnolia After Dark ― Engines Off, Party On!’ is certain to be a spectacular, memorable event celebrating the 10th anniversary of Magnolia,” said Miller. “A safe, socially-distanced girls’ night out, it will be incredibly entertaining and feature speakers, a mesmerizing light show, optional food, and much more.”

“This year’s Magnolia event is truly special because amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a unique, exciting evening for all ages to enjoy, safely,” said Villarroel. “We are pleased to have event proceeds benefitting those who have been impacted this past year due to the pandemic and those who were in dire need before COVID-19.”

“We at United Way of Broward County’s Women United are thrilled to have Dominique Dawes speak in-person at this 10th Annual Magnolia event,” said Albritton. “From Olympic gold medalist to Broadway performer, to TV analyst, to president of the Women’s Sports Foundation, Ms. Dawes continues on a path to inspire, motivate and lead, something that our women value and implement into their daily lives.”

The webinar series will help educate, highlight and reflect on critical black Florida stories of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, Florida’s Lynching and the African Diaspora Experience.

Hosted by Mr. Guy Forchion, Executive Director of the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust, these stories are to unify rather than divide communities by highlighting our priorities of family, equal access, economic stability, and community.

Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune (1875–1955) was the founder of Bethune-Cookman University. She served as a New Deal government official—in one of the 20 highest-level offices held by women in the administration, and the highest held by an African American woman; was founder of FDR’s “black cabinet;” served as president of the National Association of Colored Women; and founded and served as president of the National Council of Negro Women.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will celebrate Women’s History Month and World Water Month with “Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” a visual narrative by award-winning artist Lisette Morales. The exhibit will open on Monday, March 8, International Women’s Day, with a special livestream virtual reception via YouTube where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A with Morales, at 4 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 28 in the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale) and available digitally via History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is a project created entirely in 2020 and 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This exhibition at History Fort Lauderdale begins with a series of images highlighting Miccosukee Grandmother and Everglades conservationist Betty Osceola, Panther Clan, and her work promoting respect and awareness for our planet by organizing Indigenous prayer walks through the Everglades. It also highlights a collection of portraits of women who work or live in Immokalee and whose strength and perseverance are admirable and worthy.

Lisette Morales is a Nicaraguan-born photojournalist and interdisciplinary artist based in Florida. Her camera has been her tool for activism since the early ‘90s when she traveled through war-torn areas of Central America, documenting the disruption from military conflicts. After surviving domestic violence in her own life, Morales turned to painting and illustration as a mode of catharsis and self-expression. Her work echoes the feminist worldview that she now embodies and has been featured in numerous publications. In recent years, Morales has returned to photography as her media of choice. Morales was an official delegate to the United Nations Women 2018 Commission on the Status of Women. She is a member of the Artful Activist, Zuma Press, The Authority Collective, ArtAid Naples and Colectivo Liminal.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is one of several stories that History Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer during Women’s History Month. In addition to this exhibit, History Fort Lauderdale and The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale will also present “Women Trailblazers: Champions of Change – Broward County,” another photography exhibition, March 4 -31. This exhibit, to be displayed at The Galleria (2414 East Sunrise Blvd), will showcase six prominent women of today who are proponents of change along with historical female predecessors who helped to pave the way for our community. A ticketed exhibition preview and recognition ceremony honoring these women of today and benefiting History Fort Lauderdale will take place on Wednesday, March 3, at 5:30 p.m., at The Galleria. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/HFLWomenTrailblazers.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

The graffiti icons and legendary artists reflect on their longstanding friendship and their processes in their street and studio practice. Artists who have both pioneered cross-disciplinary practices in their own way, Lee Quiñones and Futura reflect on their own evolving identities as artists, and what it means to be a cross-boundary creator today.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr. 2/11/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr.
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will launch the first segment of its “Meet the Author,” interactive Zoom series with Palm Beach County-based Donn R. Colee, Jr. author of Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press), on February 11 at noon. The series, featuring local writers of all genres, will continue on the second Thursday of each month.

Colee Jr. is a seventh-generation Floridian and a direct descendent of George Colee, who immigrated to the St. Augustine area from England in 1821. Donn grew up in Orlando but frequently visited relatives in the ancient city, where his curiosity was piqued by stories about a massacre of long-ago family members at Fort Lauderdale’s New River. While the “Colee Massacre” story was later debunked, it refused to die. His Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River began as an attempt to finally resolve the last vestiges of that myth, but the power of New River quickly propelled the book to become a history of the river, its fascinating people, and the transformation of its wilderness into a metropolis. This is his second book. His first, Towers in the Sand, is the history of radio and television stations in Florida and the people who brought them to life. His family has been engaged in Florida broadcasting for three generations. Colee is a member of the Florida Historical Society, History Fort Lauderdale, St. Augustine Historical Society and Historical Society of Palm Beach County. He is a former commissioner of the Florida Inland Navigation District, the state agency responsible for maintenance and improvements of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from Fernandina Beach to Key Biscayne. It was built by a company that was cofounded in 1881 by his great-great-great-grandfather, who became its civil engineer. Donn and his wife, Martha, reside in Palm Beach Gardens.

Upcoming authors will be announced. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthor .

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with

About Sweet Caroline Bar

Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar was opened in 2018 with one purpose in mind – to bring people together through singing, dancing, laughing, and drinking! Since then, that’s exactly what we’ve accomplished.

With two big screen tv’s for the lyrics, and DJs that know how to get the party going, the entire crowd and even our staff are part of each and every song.

We are proud to have opened a bar for the community to gather and have fun in a unique and exciting way. Whether you like classic rock or hip-hop, reggaeton or salsa, 70’s, 80’s, or 90’s music, we’re waiting for you to come sing and have fun at Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar!

Facebook
Cost: Free, Facebook Live Event

Set the table for romance this Valentine’s Day! Chef Stephen Puhr of Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, will show you how to prepare a seductive dinner for two featuring Filet Medallions and Parmesan Crusted Lobster Tails on the next Cooking with The Galleria free virtual tutorial series on Facebook Live, Tuesday, February 9, at 2 p.m. This special meal will be available for dine-in (Feb. 12 – 14) or as a take-home meal kit. One segment viewer will be selected to receive a deluxe salt sampler valued at $49.95 from The Spice Lab, now open at The Galleria across from Bath & Body Works.

Chef Stephen Puhr discovered his unshakable passion for cooking and warm hospitality at the tender age of 15 while working in a small pizzeria on the south side of Chicago. As a graduate of Chicago’s Le Cordon Bleu, Puhr landed his first position as executive chef for Redstone American Grill at the age of 26.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, is proud to spotlight the creativity and contributions of Broward County’s African American community. In honor of Black History Month, History Fort Lauderdale will host “Black History, Black Future,” a fine art exhibit featuring works for show and sale from Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) students, from February 2 – 28. The exhibit, curated by instructor Celestin Joseph, represents a contemporary view of Black History from the perspective of students at the very school that was instrumental in overturning segregation laws in the City of Fort Lauderdale 50 years ago. The exhibit will be open to the public at the New River Inn building of History Fort Lauderdale and will be accessible as a digital experience on History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Black History, Black Future” will feature a variety of styles and mediums reflecting African American culture, arts and entertainment and the ongoing struggle for equality. Featured pieces in the exhibition include works by Tayshaun Small and Mikayle Morrison, both currently AP studio art students mentored by Joseph, himself a Dillard alumnus.

“Black History, Black Future,” is one of several insightful experiences at History Fort Lauderdale. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting additional African American, Caribbean, Latin and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with
docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request.

RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

In honor of Haitian Independence Day, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is proud to host Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist Inez Barlatier, musician and surrealist visual artist Jan Sebon, and author Fabienne Josaphat for an intimate program of music and poetry on Jan. 1. This virtual performance coincides with the museum’s current exhibition “Life & Spirituality in Haitian Art: Selection from the Betty and Isaac Rudman Trust Collection,” on view through March 14, 2021.

Initiated by the voodoo ceremony of Bois Caïman on the night of August 14, 1791, The Haitian Revolution represents one of the key turning points in the history of the western world and human rights. Led by enslaved Africans in the French colony of Saint Domingue, the revolution resulted in the abolition of slavery in the colony, the first to do so in the western world, and the birth of Haiti on January 1 of 1804. Today, Haitian in Haiti and the diaspora celebrate their Independence in honor of a line of ancestors that fought for their freedom. At the center of the celebration is Soup Joumou, a traditional soup that becomes a symbol of their freedom. MOCA North Miami is pleased to celebrate our Haitian community.

The acts include:

Inez Barlatier is a Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist. At the age of 12 years old, she joined her father’s band, Jan Sebon & Kazak International. Inez later led her own band, Kazoots, for 6 years. She has received a Knight Arts Champion, a L.E.A.P. and an Artist Relief grant supporting her ongoing projects. Inez developed a children’s show entitled “Ayiti: Stories & Songs from Haiti” which was selected as a Spotlight presentation at the 2020 International Performance Art for Youth Conference.

Jan Sebon is a musician and visual artist from Haiti. He is a staple in Miami as pioneering Haitian Jazz music in Miami with his band Koleksyon Kazak. Sebon has hosted political radio shows in Haiti resulting in him being exiled and moving to Miami at the age of 22. He later became an activist and community organizer, fighting for Haitian immigrant rights and hosting another radio show on WDNA in Miami. He has been performing in Miami for over 30 years and has toured internationally while being a former board member at the Miami Light Project. Sebon is also a masterful African and Haitian drummer and surrealist visual artist.

Fabienne Josaphat is the author of Dancing in the Baron’s Shadow, a debut novel released with Unnamed Press and translated into French by Calmann-Levy. Her essay, Summer is an Empty House, recently made the Notable Essays mentions in Best American Essays 2016. Her fiction, non-fiction and poetry have been featured in the African American Review, The Master’s Review, Grist Journal, Damselfly, Hinchas de Poesia, Off the Coast Journal and The Caribbean Writer, as well as in Eight Miami Poets, a Jai-Alai Books poetry anthology. She was recently a national juror for the 2019 Scholastic Awards. She lives in South Florida.

The panel will be free and open to the public via the Zoom video conferencing platform.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present, “Where the Boys Are,” an exclusive 60th anniversary film photo exhibition at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. Opening on Wednesday, December 3, this free retrospective will feature 40 curated historical and never-before-seen oversized images chronicling the making of and local star-studded premiere (December 21, 1960) of the landmark film that cemented the City of Fort Lauderdale as a worldwide Spring Break destination. The walk-through exhibit will be available for the public to view near Swarovski until January 3, 2021.

Visitors to The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale will delight in seeing the making of Where the Boys Are, the 1960 American CinemaScope comedy directed by Henry Levin, via a variety of slice-of-life and candid on-set images enlarged for detail. These include captures of local resident and actress Connie Francis (who sang the film’s memorable title theme), as well as stars Dolores Hart, Paula Prentiss, George Hamilton, Yvette Mimieux, Jim Hutton, and Frank Gorshin. Some photos were captured on the actual site of The Galleria, then an open-air shopping center called the Sunrise Center. Many photos feature local South Florida extras and regional film crew who were called-upon to star and work on the film.

The Salvation Army of Broward County is seeking to fill 125 seasonal paid bell ringer positions at its Holiday 2020 Job Fair on November 4. South Florida residents with a positive outlook and an affinity for philanthropy and fun are encouraged to apply.

Synonymous with the Christmas season, “ringing the bell” at a Salvation Army Red Kettle has been a tradition since 1895. It’s not just about ringing a bell, however. All proceeds from the Kettle stay in Broward County and support the Salvation Army’s feeding, shelter and social service programs. Last year, the nonprofit organization raised more than $213,205 for the Greater Fort Lauderdale community.

The Job Fair screenings will comply with CDC-approved COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and applicants will be required to wear a mask. Bell Ringers will be selected for employment for the holiday period of November 13 – December 24.

The Red Kettle Bell Ringers program is only part of the nonprofit organization’s efforts to help those less fortunate. Last year’s Angel Tree Program secured and distributed more than 8,046 toys to 1,061 families with diminished resources. The Salvation Army is actively assisting thousands of residents-in-need through its Food Pantry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each Thursday, trusted Army experts provide non-perishable items and other pantry goods to more hundreds of underserved families. The organization also provides meals-to-go services for the homeless, its residents and other impoverished individuals.

The Salvation Army is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to “meeting human needs without discrimination.” For more information or to make a donation, visit www.salvationarmyflorida.org/fortlauderdale or call (954) 524-6991.

South Florida’s favorite Halloween show, IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS* (previously Hocus Pocus Live) is landing at The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park for two nights of holiday fun on October 30 and 31 (performances are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. each night; each runs 1 hour and 15 minutes). Tickets are on sale with the opportunity to save $10.

Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.

Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of QUEENZ The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $65 for general admission, and $75 for “front row” VIP, which includes a souvenir gift pack. To save $10 off any ticket, use coupon code SAVE10 at checkout to unlock discounted tickets which can be purchased by visiting www.hocuspocuslive.net, by calling The Kelsey Theater at (561) 328-7481, or the Boca Black Box Theater at (561) 483-9036. Performance tickets will be limited to comply with COVID-19 community health and safety guidelines. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the show’s displaced and furloughed cast of entertainers due to the pandemic. *Celebrity impersonators, no affiliation with the Walt Disney Company.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries – including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists – who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST was an official selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival, postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film’s virtual theatrical run reached 47 theaters across the USA in June 2020, and raised money for two organizations advancing women of color in STEM.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

In addition to the Kettle Krush 5K and the holiday Red Kettle program, The Salvation Army of Broward County feeds hundreds of families through its annual free Thanksgiving meal initiative in partnership with The Cheesecake Factory, and distributes over 8,000 gifts to over 2,100 children though its Angel Trees and Holiday Toy Shop.

During the virtual race time window, The Salvation Army of Broward encourages participants to email selfies, photos or short videos of their personal race with the hashtag #BrowardKettleKrush2020 for consideration to be posted on the organization’s social media sites. Participants can also display their chosen racecourse by uploading maps from the following fitness app trackers: Strava, Garmin, Polar, MapMyRun, RunKeeper, MovesCount, EndoMondo and TomTom Sports (course maps will be publicly viewable).
