Come see a Show!

by Peter Shaffer
presented by Ellipsis Theatre
Alan Strang is a disturbed youth whose obsession with horses leads him to commit an unspeakable act of violence. Psychiatrist Dr. Dysart struggles to unravel the motivation for Alan’s brutality, a challenge which forces her to question her own life and purpose, and doubt the very ethics of her work. Equus is a timeless classic that delves into the darkest sides of human sexuality, worship, and sanity.
Please note: there is nudity and adult content in this production.

At The Community Farm of Ann Arbor
Remember that the easiest way to fulfill your volunteer hours is to attend meetings! Plus, we love hearing from you! Join us!
Saturday, September 15
This joyous, annual event has a rich tradition on the farm. There will be children’s games, a pot luck feast featuring pizzas baked in our brick oven, music, hay rides, a bon fire and much more.
– We need volunteers! Sign up at distribution to help us make this a party to remember and fulfill some volunteer hours!
– Bring a dish to pass and your own place settings for the potluck. We will have some seating set up but it is also nice to bring a blanket if you would like to eat picnic style. It is also a good idea to bring a flashlight to make moving around after dark and getting back to your car a bit easier!
– We will have parking clearly marked but it is somewhat limited so carpooling is always a good idea!
– If you have instruments or a song to sing, bring them along for the sing-along!
– Think of a talent (joke, skit, skill, song, etc.) you would like to share at the talent show!
Biodynamic Prep-Making Workshop with Harald Hoven
Saturday, September 22 9am-4pm
1525 S. Fletcher Rd. Chelsea, MI 48118
Join us as we experience the biodynamic preparations both in a classroom setting and hands-on. We will work on developing a personal relationship with the preparations of: Horn manure • Nettle • Yarrow • Chamomile • Oak Bark • Dandelion • Valerian • Horn Silica (Valerian and Horn Silica will not be made but discussed and integrated throughout the workshop)
Please dress for the outdoors and pack a lunch and/or snack. A community potluck with an evening bonfire and star gazing will be held as nightfall closes the day. Camping is available for non-local guests at the farm. Please pack everything you need for your sleepover and take everything out as you leave the farm the following day. Thank you.
We are asking a $25.00-$150.00 sliding scale to be paid at the door as our workshop begins. All proceeds will go toward Harald’s airfare, the workshop fee, and the Chrysalis program (the non-profit educational arm of the Community Farm). No one will be turned away due to finances. Please contact us by phone or email to register: (734) 433.0261 or firstname.lastname@example.org
