Project Native is a non-profit environmental education organization committed to growing native plants, maintaining a native butterfly house and wildlife sanctuary, and promoting stewardship of the local landscape.
For the past three years Project Native has hosted a successful day-long environmental film festival. This year, the festival will kick off Saturday, March 29th at 7pm at The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington with a special screening of Revolution, an award-winning film by Rob Stewart, director of Sharkwater.
On Sunday, March 30th Project Native will once again host a full day of environmental films at the Triplex Cinema in Great Barrington. As in years past, the day will start at 10:00 am with a film for children and families.
Popular actress, Annie Potts, played - and this is really cherry-picking from her numerous credits - Mary Jo Shively for sevens season on the CBS series, Designing Women and Janine Melnitz in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. She received a Golden Globe nod for her work in Corvette Summer and voiced the memorable Bo Peep in Pixar’s Toy Story I and II.
Potts is currently playing Berthe in The Tony Award Winning Broadway Revival of Pippin at The Music Box Theatre.
Pippin has a book by Roger O. Hirson and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. This revival is directed by Diane Paulus and features sizzling choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and breathtaking acrobatics by Les 7 Doigts de la Main. Gypsy Snider helmed the Circus Creation and the choreography is by Chet Walker.
