About Newburyport
map
Local information about Newburyport, MA and the businesses that call Newburyport home including the local restaurants, real estate agents, hotels, antique shops and tourist attractions. Newburyport is on of the smallest cities in the state of Massachusetts, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful oceanside community!

The city has a strong tourist industry including a favorite destination for art lovers. Here you will find a most charming and large downtown area full of art galleries, specialty shops, historic B&B's, and terrific restaurants.

Newburyport is home to many large and gracious Federalist homes that were built by fortunes acquired by whaling and clipper ship owners living during the 19th century. Don't forget to visit Plum Island, an oceanfront wildlife refuge which also contains lovely beachfront and adorable summer homes and cottages.

Newburyport is very proud of its history and justifiably so, Newburyport staged the first tea party in opposition to England's tax on tea and it was well before the more famous one in Boston Mass. Newburyport is also proud to be the birth place of the United States Coast Guard since the first ship commissioned for the Coast guard was built here and named the frigate Massachusetts.

In the early 1960's, Newburyport used state and federal funds to launch a massive redevelopment scheme to reclaim its historic neighborhoods made of granite, cobblestones and to update their utilities such as water and sewer. At the same time in order to prepare for a profitable present and future, Newburyport built an industrial park which now houses many diversified small industries.

Many residents commute daily to Boston via Route 95 and on the commuter rail. Residents are proud of the fact that many families have lived in the city for generations, but they are just as proud of the fact that the city welcomes newcomers and the new ideas they bring. So come to Newburyport and experience the history, beauty and hospitality!

Summer Classics :Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest Directed by Anne Easter Smith First performed in 1895, this play's high farce and witty dialogue have helped make it Wilde's most enduringly popular play. The Importance of Being Earnest is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrief, maintain fictitious personæ in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the conventions of late Victorian society, the play's major theme is the triviality with which the culture treats anything that might be of personal value in favor of appearances.

Greg Klyma
Greg Klyma is a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and seasoned performer, bringing to every stage a catalog of material that assumes his audiences are both smart and able to laugh. His birth date puts him squarely in the middle of Generation X, but Greg is an old-school troubadour. His enduring themes, articulate and amusing stories, and populist ideals make him one of those rare young artists who is carrying the torch of Woody and Ramblin' Jack. He rolls in off the road, pulls out a guitar, and proceeds to take us back to the basics: family, love, gratitude, and laughter. It's the timeless art of the true troubadour, keeping alive the American folk tradition. 15 years into a career that has yielded seven albums, dozens of national tours, and the acclaim of folk's most prestigious reviewers, Greg's eager fans paid for his new album. Completing the online fundraising well ahead of schedule, Klyma delivers an emotionally charged blend of fan favorites from recent tours, and plenty of never-before-heard material on his eighth album, Another Man's Treasure. Long known as a passionate and largely positive populist, Klyma's new album showcases an impressively matured songwriting talent. Travelling the perilous landscape of love, Another Man's Treasure admits sadness, anger, regret and profound tenderness. Going beyond the Woody Guthrie/Mark Twain sass of recent years, Klyma shows himself navigating intimacy as a thoroughly modern man. But this blue-collar boy knows when to swallow the heartbreak, and so the album rallies with an equal measure of punky sing-alongs and bootstrap lifters.

His quest to understand these experiences sent him on a journey into Tibetan Buddhism, Yoga, mystical Christianity, Shamanism, the Taoism of China, and Egyptian alchemy The film follows Kenyon's journey from the stage on Broadway, to giant caves in the south of France, the golden-chandeliered symphony halls of Vienna and finally to the snowy peaks of Tibet, performing with his unique - almost four octave range - voice which has earned him a worldwide

Jack's Hat, A Stage Three Workshop Production of Charles Van Eman in his original one-man play
In Jack's Hat, writer and performer, Charles Van Eman, portrays four distinct and individually drawn characters. Although each is separated in time and station, their lives are connected in surprising waysthrough a hata hat with bullet holes and history. As their stories unfold, we see how each man tries to know, and do, the right thing. Through their successes and failures, we understand the threads of humanity that unite us in a common experience. Charles Van Eman brings a vast depth and breadth of experience to his one-man show. His numerous acting credits include stage, film (96 Minutes, The Joneses, Riddle) and television (CSI Miami, Vampire Diaries, Reckless, Chasing Life, The Colbys, Days of Our Lives, and All My Children, ). Up next for Charles is Sea of Trees with Matthew McConaughey, directed by Gus Van Sant. Charles has published two novels, On the Way to Pomona and The Weight of Loss. Original music by Matthew Bernstein. Jack's Hat runs with no intermission. There is adult content. This Stage Three Workshop Production is made possible by a generous grant from Friendship Foundation. At TASN, The Stage Three Workshop Production Series is a professional theater laboratory experience designed to promote the development of new works. In 2010, Jack's Hat was presented in our theatre as a staged reading by the North Shore Readers Theatre Collaborative (NSRTC), qualifying it to be considered for Stage Three. A workshop production is a full-scale production in terms of sets, costumes, lighting, and staging. Workshop productions are an integral step for the playwright in completing the piece before it makes its actual premier. Venues like TASN are vital for the development of new plays and introduction of new work into mainstream theater. The process: The director and cast work with the playwright during the rehearsal period, refining and trimming the play. Set and lighting design often become integral to the defining and refining of a new play as well. The purpose of such a production is to get a new play on its feet in a physical setting to see what works and what doesn't. Finally, a play isn't complete until it is presented to an audience.
