Arts Council Presents the Connections Project 2019 TOUR
The Florida Keys Council of the Arts works to support all the arts, in all the Keys, all the time. The local arts agency is launching its seventh annual Connections Project Keyswide road show with a grand opening reception at the Murray Nelson Government & Cultural Center in Key Largo from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. featuring a vibrant 24-foot mosaic mural created by local artists and art lovers. The reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres is open to the public. After connecting with the art, patrons can also collect art by making a $50 donation for one canvas or a $125 donation for three at any reception or online. Once the road show has ended, donors receive a randomly selected piece of the mosaic in the mail. Each work includes an artist statement providing insight into the origin of the work and the artist’s thoughts and inspiration. Proceeds from the Connections Project directly benefit Keys artists and arts organizations.

Jan. 10, 2019 – Feb. 2, 2019
Marathon Community Theater presents: Drinking Habits  Website    Drinking Habits takes place during the early 1960s in the impoverished Oregon convent of the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing. Two nuns at the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Sewing’ have been secretly making wine in order to keep their poverty stricken convent afloat – behind the back of their alcohol-detesting Mother Superior. Unbeknownst to them, a local wine (theirs) has won a $500,000 award, and Paul and Sally, two newspaper reporters, who are ex-fiancés, are trying to discover the winning winery and break the story. The reporters go undercover as a nun and a priest, but their presence, combined with the arrival of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves. Show times 8 p.m.

Waterfront Playhouse presents: A Doll’s House, Part 2
A Doll’s House, Part 2 is the continuation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House. Far from being dry or stuffy, ADH, Pt.2 is hilariously funny, whip-smart and resonant to our gender politics. The story picks up 15 years after Nora famously slams the door on her stifling marriage at the conclusion of A Doll’s House. In Mr. Hnath’s updated version, Nora is now a successful business woman, who finds her husband, daughter and wise-cracking maid to be as changed as she has become. Fireworks explode as the play explores the rules of society and gender. See website for show dates. Show times 8 p.m.
