Sunday, September 26 @ 10 AM, Boston AIDS Walk

Support the Boston AIDS Walk at DCR’s Carson Beach in South Boston!

The Boston Prime Timers have for many, many years supported this important gay community event and we continue this traditional support this year. Over the years, BPT have raised over $26,000 for this more than worthy cause that is so important to our community. Last year 25 BPT members pledged $1,310 exceeding our goal of $1,000. This includes the generous contribution of $100 made by the BPT Board. Hopefully, we can match or even exceed last year’s donations.

Hasty Pudding Theatrical: France France Revolution!

We have reserved 30 tickets for the Thursday, March 7th Hasty Pudding Theatrical, 9 of which are still available as of this publication. You can get yours at February’s meeting. Tickets are $28.00 and are in the front four rows, so we will have great seats. The performance is at 8 PM.

So don’t delay, send in your tearsheet today, after Monday, February 18th, they’ll go away.

Location: Farkas Hall, 12 Holyoke Street, Cambridge, just outside of Harvard Sqaure.

“Vive la France! Paris is in ruins all thanks to Queen REINA TERROR and her evil regime. When Reina’s pompous right-hand man and tax collector NEVILLE LETCHAGAURDOWN takes cowardly bovine BELLE ROUNDERNECK, the townspeople are fed up—and this time not by baguettes! We follow the story of star-crossed lovers PHIL AYMIGNON, the town butcher, and sparky Princess THERESA SPARKINME.

Phil leads the townspeople in la révolution with the help of the overly optimistic and somewhat devilish SELMA COOKIES and the brainless but loveable blacksmith BRANDON IRON. As Reina tries to send her own daughter off to Siberia to be wedded to the boastful Russian Prince EMMANUEL HAFTAMARRY, Theresa will have to choose between standing by her mother and following her heart. Will wacky mime PAUL AYVOUSFRANCAIS stay loyal to Reina? Will pirate-parrot duo JACQUES SPARROW and IVY LEEVAYECANFLY ever find the booty they seek? Will DESDEMONA LISA finally meet a man after being stuck inside that darn painting for the last 300 years? We shall Merci in HPT 171: France France Revolution!

This year’s writers: Michael Perusse ’20 & Max Weiss ’20.

Lifesongs

[Lifesongs advertisement]

Friday, March 8th (2 PM & 7 PM)
Saturday, March 9th (7 PM)
Boston Center for the Arts, Plaza Theatre
539 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116

Lifesongs celebrates the stories of LGBTQ seniors in our community. Lifesongs was originally conceived by Palaver cellist Matthew Smith as a songwriting collaboration between Palaver musicians and elders from the community, who write original lyrics based on their lived experiences. Over the years, participants have created powerful stories of love, loss, courage, and affirmation that we are excited to showcase on a larger scale as part of our residency at Boston Center for the Arts. In addition to new Lifesongs participants, the program will feature Samuel Barber’s iconic Adagio for Strings, a new comission by Akenya Seymour, performances by the Theater Offensive, and arrangements of Lifesongs pieces for Palaver Strings and the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus. As rising bigotry threatens hard-won rights ard freedoms, these stories become more important than ever as reminders of where we are coming from and where we are going.
