About Newburyport

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. Funded in part by a generous grant from New England BioLabs Inc

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.

Joe Hanley
After spending the past 20 years playing around New England in his bands Beyond The Pale and more recently The Foggy Duo, Joe Hanley is getting back to his solo acoustic roots once again. Joe plays a diverse mix of tunes including original material, “deep cuts”, and classic favorites. “I’m excited about reconnecting with folks in the solo setting. The band and duo are still active and fun so this format will just fill out my musical palette. It’s been fun learning some great tunes people love but may not hear very often. And playing solo will facilitate pulling out some of my original tunes. I’ll even throw a couple of jazz tunes in the set just to keep things interesting!.”

Grade-A Group

Hey la-dey-la, Group is back!  That’s right, after a year of diligent writing, Group returns with another knockout production. This year we deliver Grade-A Group: three nights of our exciting short plays, as well as two performances of a full-length play.  Group members include: Cynthia Arsenault, Ray Arsenault, Joshua Faigen, Kim Holliday, David Houlden, Michael Kimball and Kathleen Miller.  

A Synopsis:

Take a gander at our menu:

 

It’s the morning after in Cynthia Arsenault’s "Booze Cruise Blues."  Two partiers, still fried from the night before, awake to discover they are alone, unmoored, and drifting out to sea.

"It’s My Wonderful Life," a monologue by Cynthia, coddles up to those xeroxed Christmas letters we get from friends who want to tell us about their perfect lives. 

 

In "Houston" by Michael Kimball two astronauts get a sunny-side-up look at privatization. 

In Michael’s "Disagreement at Dead Boot Saloon"  there’s gun control in the old wild west. Some hard-boiled types settle their differences without bullets.

 

In Kathleen Miller’s "Pumpkin" a woman visits her parents for Halloween but gets bedeviled by what she discovers.

 

Roger opens his door to a stranger in Ray Arsenault’s "Forward Flash" and reality gets flipped over - easy and often.

There’s trouble with costumes in Ray’s "Just a Party." A couple about to leave for a Halloween party scrambles to hash things out.
