February 7 OFS Hosts Songwriter Series

| No Comments
On Saturday, February 7, winter will get a bit warmer -- as a quartet of top local and regional singer-songwriters present an intimate, candlelit evening of music at the popular Schoolhouse Songwriter Series held at the historic Old Franklin Schoolhouse. The evening, which includes coffeehouse-style cafe tables and refreshments, will be the third installment of the quarterly music event, which is sponsored by the Metuchen Arts Council and hosted by Metuchen-based singer-songwriter Sharon Goldman. Doors open at 7:30 pm and music starts at 8 pm.
The cost is $10 per person ($5 for kids under 12). BYOB is encouraged!For this winter show, Goldman has invited three talented performers, including two local Metuchen favorites to share their original music in round-robin style (made famous by Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, in which each artist sings a song and then passes on the next performer round-robin style). They are:
 
MARK ALLEN BERUBE
: Brooklyn-based Mark Allen Berube is far more entertaining than any single human being with an acoustic guitar is allowed to be under current law. His punchy, well-crafted songs and rapid-fire delivery allow audiences little time to indulge in the laughter he frequently provokes without feeling like they've missed something. His brand-new album is called "Sticky."
 
BRUCE DONNOLA
: Metuchen's own Bruce Donnola has recorded five albums and composed an abstract instrumental score for the 2011 theatrical production, Nosferatu: the Vampyre. In addition to his own recordings, his songs have been recorded by numerous artists including frequent collaborator Jono Manson, John Popper, Shawn Colvin, David Hamburger, the Barnetti Bros Band and many others.
 
RENEE MASKIN
: A native Metuchen-ite who currently lives near Asbury Park, Renee Maskin's unique, somewhat-raspy voice serves as a compliment to the whiskey soaked world of alternative folk where her songs reside. In addition to her solo performances, Maskin has played and toured with bands of a variety of genres for over ten years.
 
Host
SHARON GOLDMAN
offers sophisticated songwriting for grown-ups -- the born-and-bred New Yorker (now based in Metuchen, NJ) has been called a "brilliant tunesmith" (New York Music Daily) whose vivid imagery and intelligent, inventive storytelling -- combined with clever, catchy melodies and pure, precise vocals -- take folk-pop to new, more powerful places.
           
Door open at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 7th.  The Old Franklin School is located next to the Metuchen Fire Department at 491 Middlesex Avenue in Metuchen.  Parking is available on Middlesex Avenue and in the Borough Hall parking lot across the street.  For more information about the Schoolhouse Song Writers Series performance on October 18th contact Nancy Goldberg at (732) 632-8502 or at
ngoldberb@metuchen.com 

Metuchen Film Students Gain Entry to Garden State Film Fest

| No Comments
GSFF15.jpgAn original short dramatic film by Metuchen film students who attend the Write Stuff Writers Workshop has been selected for the Garden State Film Festival, to run in Atlantic City March 19-22, 2015. The entry is titled LUCY.

Metuchen High School freshman Molly Babos wrote the script for LUCY and stars with Metuchen High School sophomore Sandy Fairclough. The short film was directed by Metuchen High freshman Ada Nelson and edited by Edgar School 8th Grader Julia Memory. Additional members of the Write Stuff Writers Workshop and local teen actors also played supporting roles in the film, notably Geneva Lawson, an Edgar 8th grader. Sebastian Zuniga, who was Aladdin in Edgar's production of the musical ALADDIN JR. last spring rounded out the main cast. The script was workshopped in the Thursday class of the WSWW throughout the year. The film was shot in Metuchen locations.

The Write Stuff Writers Workshop is headed by local writer/filmmaker Jana Sicliano who runs workshops and private classes in academic writing, creative writing and filmmaking in Metuchen. For more information on tutoring, classes or other questions, please contact the program at thewritestuffwc@gmail.com. Check out the trailer here for their showcase from last year's Junebug Arts Festival:
