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!

Regional Forum on Broadband Technologies

Broadband is the foundation to deliver better education, healthcare, local government, and residential competitive access.

This regional forum convenes municipal and technology leaders to talk about education, economic development, local government, and other sectors to share and learn best practices for expanding broadband access and to improve our quality of life. We do not need super-fast broadband to play online games or download software. We need it to compete in the global digital economy.

What can you expect at the Broadband Forum?

Elected leaders and community volunteers will join technology experts to highlight case studies from Gloucester, Newburyport, and West Newbury.

Confirmed speakers include Don Skane, IT Director for the Newburyport School Department; Glenn Kemper, chair of the board of selectmen in West Newbury; Ryan Sawyer of the Gloucester Cable Advisory Committee; and Greg Whelan of Greywale Management.

With the exception of a few communities with Verizon FiOs, most of us in the lower Merrimack Valley and Cape Ann are contracted with Comcast cable modem technology or Verizon DSL. Both have high prices and neither is economically healthy for our region. We need affordable, state of the art, broadband access. We need a regional fiber backbone supporting anchor institutions and government agencies with extensions to homes and businesses.

Our keynote speaker is Dan Vortherms, the chief executive officer of OpenCape Corporation. OpenCape is a non-profit organization that received $40 million in state and federal grants to construct a 350-mile fiber-optic broadband network spanning Cape Cod and the Islands, and Southeastern Massachusetts.

Who should attend the Broadband Forum?

We are contacting community leaders from local government and regional entities, libraries, community and economic development professionals, school technology leaders, technology providers, small business entrepreneurs, and the general business community. Please come, spread the word, and discover how we can work together to compete with the duopoly of Comcast and Verizon.

Greg Klyma
GREG KLYMA ( an old school troubadour with contemporary savvy 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.

Susan Levine
Singer-songwriter Susan Levine draws inspiration from a life full of contrasts. She has been an itinerant performer, a student at Harvard, an actress in New York, a waitress in Santa Fe, a music therapist, and most recently, a mother. Her songs chronicle the emotional and physical landscapes of the in-between – the haves and have-nots, the loved and the abandoned, the sad but hopeful. A finalist in the 2008 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition, a 2008 Tri-Centric Showcase Artist at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, and a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition, the 2004 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, the 2004 Rose Garden Coffeehouse Performing Songwriter Competition, and the 2002 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Competition, she is described by Marilyn Rea Beyer (WUMB Folk Radio) as ?®? smart writer with a warm voice that can send chills down your spine.” Susan's songs are unique and memorable blends of folk, pop, Americana and country, suffused with poetic vision and sung with a distinctive voice described by Richard Fox, of WCUW FM, as "flowing and expressive, powerful yet capable of wrapping you up with warmth and tenderness." This voice, completely her own, yet often likened in its range and flexibility to Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Nanci Griffith, causes audiences to take notice; the poetry and heart in her lyrics, and the emotional investment in her performances cause audiences to really listen and come back for more. Susan's 2nd cd, Atlas (2007), produced and recorded by Tom Eaton at Thomas Eaton Recording, Newburyport, MA, was lauded by the Boston Herald: "Introspective, melodic folk-pop simply doesn? get much finer than the new CD by Newburyport?-? Levine. That rare album where a whole mind and heart is revealed."

Whether insert ‘09er here is hunkered-down find their way in the business world, studying from the bounds of our hometown, gracing the big screen of a theater near you or working hard to figure it out… we all have reason to celebrate!

Your $09 ticket price (+fees, sorry) includes two drink tickets, lots of tasty food to munch on, entertainment from a surprise musical guest, and the overall good vibes that come from being around such a rad group of ’09 grads. We've aimed to make this reunion as cool and (sometimes) classy as the NHS Class of 2009 is itself so no, you won't be expected to wear a nametag with your current life stage.  That being said, please limit guests to ‘09ers only if possibleSpace is limited.

Please come celebrate where the lives of ’09 have gone so far and where we’re going next! Can’t wait to see you there!

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.
