Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Queen City to host movie?
"Rebecca's Rising" imagines the possibility that a real coven of Satan worshippers was behind the Salem witch trials and is still at work in Salem today. Glimpses of Heath's real life can be found throughout the fictional tale. He grew up near Salem, Mass., in Marblehead, and is a direct descendant of both Rebecca Nurse, the last person tried and hanged during the witch trials, and her accuser Ann R. Putnam. Heath was once news director at WMUR; his main character, John Andrews, has a history in television news.
It is clear he will do everything in his power to keep filming in New Hampshire, and I hope he is successful. Maybe there is even a role for me as an extra. I would make an excellent witch, just ask my husband.
Noon Year's Eve
I love how many events The Currier Museum of Art has for families. I just wish I wasn't on the verge of a heart attack every moment we're inside.
"XANADU" is a simple story about a Greek muse, Clio, who descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest creation of his life — a roller disco. Sounds weird, right? It is, but so much fun because the actors are performing on roller skates.
Tickets range from $15 to $45; the show runs through Jan. 25. For more information on this and other fun shows around Manchester, visit www.NH365.org.
