FRI. MAR. 6 @ 7:30PM

Don White celebrates his birthday with a show at The Rogers Street Theatre! There is no one-word description for what White does. He’s an award-winning singer/songwriter, a comedian, an author, and a storyteller. He’s been bringing audiences to laughter and tears for thirty years, released ten CDs – including his latest, Live At the Guthrie Center – three live DVDs, and a book, Memoirs of a C Student. His latest album is More Alive. Since 2015, he has joined master storytellers Bil Lep and Bill Harley in “Father’s Daze,” a hilarious three-man storytelling show about the triumphs and tribulations of fatherhood. He toured North America for nearly a decade with folk songwriting legend Christine Lavin, with whom he still plays the occasional show. BYO SHOW, doors open at 7pm.

MEN OF GLOUCESTER (1949)

NOW PLAYINGmen_of_gloucester

Shot in 1946 and released in 1949, this industrial film (sponsored by The Ford Motor Company), depicts the lives of the people who inhabit our humble Massachusetts fishing community. The film shows the home life, a deep-sea fishing trip, a storm at sea, and the yearly observance of the feast of St. Peter, patron saint of fishermen. This is the best version of this 22-minute documentary available, rescued for the Cape Ann Cinema & Stage from a dumpster of a Pittsburgh public school by Skip Elsenheimer of AV Geeks.
