Dear Friends and Patrons,

The Waterfront Playhouse has been bringing fantastic stories to life for
80 years, and we have certainly weathered storms, but now on the eve of
our 81st season we pause. Our hearts are with those who have been
affected by this pandemic and our heartfelt thanks goes out to those who
are working selfishly to keep us safe.

Although our season was cut short, we were able to revel in the antics of
our Youth Theater production of Shrek,jr; do the time warp in the sold
out production of The Rocky Horror Show, ‘Let the Sunshine’ in the sold
out production of Hair, go Around the World in 80 Days, hear the music
of Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, experience a
world premiere with Michael Aman’s Glass and have the time of your
life with Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Thank you, thank you and thank
you! To those who did not see Priscilla, thank you for donating your
tickets back to the theater or transferring it to a gift certificate or just
giving us time to process exactly what was happening!

While shows have been cancelled, we have been busy planning what to
bring you next.

On Saturday evening, May 2 at 8pm , tune in to US Radio One for the
Waterfront Playhouse Radio Players production of The 39 Steps: A
Live Radio Play. Featuring Dave Bootle, David Black, John McDonald,
Erin Mckenna and Carolyn Cooper this radio play will be broadcast live
from the stage of the Waterfront. It will be great fun!

Our youth theater production of Disney’s Frozen, is on hold, but rest
assured you will be able to  Let It Go  later this year!

Neil LaBute’s Bash,  featuring Arthur Crocker, Belle Jampol, Lauren
Thompson and Ross Pipkin is preparing for the day we can open the
doors or live stream the production. (Don’t worry, we are playing safe).

A revival of our popular Trunk Material:  a musical review is on the
drawing table along with a fabulous season of plays and musicals to
entertain you throughout the year!
We thank you again for your support and look forward to the day we can
“See you at the theater!

4) Thank you for the shout out on my piece, “Atoms,” on the front page of the Citizen yesterday. I’m so humbled and excited to be part of the Art Garden at the Key West Botanical Gardens for another year!

Up Next after the May Exhibitions (Directly Below) is a NEW On-Line Course from TSKW
This Link https://tskw.org/all-exhibitions/ Will give you details on the May 2020 Exhibitions Here they are "ART STORIES" by CHRISTINE FIFER, "BEACH BODIES" by CAITLIN ALBRITTON, and "COLOR CONVERSATIONS" by JILL CALDWELL . Then Of course ; the Every Year Anticipated Summer Exhibition from TSKW Member Artists "2020 Annual Member's Show / Exhibition" in June (This Exhibition uses ALL the Space in the Building) MORE INFO DIRECTLY FROM THEIR WEBSITE (Below)
Christine Fifer’s paintings and sculptures revolve around books – their history & their contents – all woven together with puns, puzzles, and didactic intent to both amuse and encourage conversation. Still life paintings of precariously stacked first editions are simultaneously realistic and surreal, prompting extended investigation. Leaping from the canvas, Fifer’s sculptures utilize actual books suffering from wear or neglect that have been repurposed to create playful and thoughtful sculptures in search of their own Renaissance. In the Sanger Gallery.
Culled from her ongoing Gym Series, Albritton’s colorful, awkward, and very funny paintings ultimately offer a profound commentary on the lengths people will go to in search of the perfect body. In the XOJ Gallery

Caldwell’s mostly abstract, mixed media paintings capture the exuberance of an island bursting with color: the endless shades of green foliage, the magnificent variety of flowers, the amazing aqua-teal-turquoise water, the billowing clouds highlighted peach-pink with the last rays of sun, followed by the blue-purple-indigo of nightfall. They are made of layers of water-based paint, graphite, markers and scraps of paper, which add texture and evoke the feeling of experiences and relationships that are built over time.

The mango is not only a fruit best savored under a tropical sun, mingled with the sea water beading on your face. It’s not only a color that radiates joy like sunshine. It’s a metaphor for the annual bounty of our island, meant to be shared with friends and neighbors, and as such it’s the perfect symbol for our yearly summer members’ exhibition, where everyone in our amazing artistic family is invited to submit a work of art, and the results never fail to nourish the soul.
Join The Studios Online for a brand new style of learning!

New this week: a LIVE Figure Drawing Workshop, the next #DiscoverKeyWestArtists drawing, plus additional sessions added of iPhoto Critique!
3 day online course with LOTHAR SPEER
Students will meet via Zoom Wed, Thu & Fri May 13-15 at 10am
Registration: $150/$125 mbrs
Limit 8 students

Popular instructor Lothar Speer leads the first virtual Figure Drawing workshop at The Studios of Key West. This workshop will adapt Speer’s instructional goals to the virtual environment. Emphasis will be given to the principles of the classical studio practice such as placement, edges, proportion, anatomy, form, rhythm and value which provide a vigorous foundation for personal style. The students will have the privilege of drawing from a professional live model. Students will draw from direct observation of the model and receive feedback and ongoing instruction.
As an alumnus of Vienna’s National Academy of the Fine Arts and recipient of the Academy’s prestigious Johannes Fuger Medal, Lothar Speer leads his students to higher levels of self-sufficiency and visual acuity. This workshop is designed to turn every participant into their own successful teacher and fortify general drawing and design skills by providing the secrets and tricks of 500 years of European Old Master studio practice – powerful tools that have withstood the test of time.

We now Continue with a New Series from the Gang at The Key West Film Festival : FLASHBACK FRIDAY

May 1, 2020

Remember that time one of the world's biggest movie stars of all time came to Key West? We do, and you can relive that moment below.

Burt Reynolds - who still holds the record of being the number one grossing box office star for 5 years in a row (1978-1982) - graced KWFF with his presence in 2016. He was on hand to be honored with our Golden Key Award along with a a screening of "The Bandit" - a highly personal film about his former stuntman and later director - Hal Needham. Hal directed him in "Smokey and The Bandit" and their relationship was definitely complex, while cherished.

The screening featured all the bells and whistles one would expect when regaling Hollywood royalty. A limited edition replica of his Trans Am from the film was parked outside of the San Carlos Theater, and
Mr. Reynolds was escorted to the screening in an old-time police car complete with a keystone cops dressed driver.

Check out a snippet of the conversation Mr. Reynolds had with David Fear of Rolling Stone, and an interview with KWFF's Andrew Shortell. 

FUN FACT: "The Bandit" is directed by Jesse Moss, whose latest film,  "Boys State,"  premiered at Sundance and sold for over $10M to a24. KWFF's Programming Director, Michael Tuckman, saw the film at Sundance and can honestly say it's the best doc he's seen this year and quite possibly one of the best of the last ten years. Along with being a US Grand Jury Prize Award Winner at Sundance, it's a sure fire lock for an Academy Award nomination.

Watch "The Bandit" on any of these platforms:

A Brief Thank you Letter to Keys Technology here in Key West and Dell Computer

. . I want to give Thanks to Keys Technology here in Key West and Dell Computer. About a month ago (Early March) my Dell 5559 that I've had for about 4 Years needed a new LCD Screen or a New LCD Screen Cable or both. Travis Hollman at Dell Computer ( https://WWW.DELL.COM ) just as this crisis was really escalating was Brilliant in making arrangement for these parts to be shipped to Keys Technology..I also in the next few weeks ordered from Dell a Battery Charger, A Dell Battery for the Dell 5559, and a 2 Carrying case. One of the Carrying Cases is for my new Dell 5584 that I purchased the week my 5559 went down.  The Support that I get from Dell on the Phone (software and hardware) for decades is Tied for First Place with Constant Contact ( A Brilliant Vehicle for my weekly Magazine Production and of Course Database Mgt. and Distribution of the Magazine). Keys Technology 916A Kennedy Dr.  https://WWW.KEYSTECHNOLOGY.COM 305-296-8775 was Brilliant in keeping their shop open for many weeks into this Crisis; and through a series of parts being delivered over a few weeks; was nice enough to fix the Dell 5559 ( especially the first few days of a Temporary Close when they came into to their shop) to complete fixing mine as well other clients computers. Thanks so very much Keys Technology and Dell Computer. Ed Krane

We Now Continue with the last batch of photos from the Photographic Exhibition "LA IN THE 1930s"Up Next but First an Important Announcement from WWW.HOMETOWNKEYWEST.COM

The 2020 election resource
for candidates, voters and media.

Dear Incumbents and Candidates in the 2020 Elections,

Hometown has canceled its “Call for Candidates’ forum scheduled for April 13, at Salute. It has become a tradition to open the campaign/election cycle with this event so that incumbents, candidates and those simply “testing the waters” can speak to the voters as to proposed ideas and concepts for our vibrant community.

This year Hometown again unveils its candidate and election information resource for Monroe County voters, incumbents, candidates, the media and all those interested in good government. Remember: Hometown members are SuperVoters—they vote in every election-primary & general, making it more important than ever to take advantage of this platform.

Hometown's Design Team has developed individual candidate spaces that will offer the Hometown website visitor (voters and media) more information about you!

Hometown offers a chance for you to get your message out—we will post your photo, contact information (telephone, email address, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram info), and a short written statement (no more than 150 words) on Hometown’s website ( Hometownkeywest.com ). Hometown is also prepared to add, in light of the possible future lack of campaign rallies, Forums, Q&A Events and other voter contacts, the  posting of a three-minute video setting forth each candidate’s vision  of why he/she should be elected and what his/her views are on the most important issues facing his/her electorate.

IMPORTANT:  Please send the following information to Hometown’s computer agent: Kelli Funkhouser at  kelli@twooceansdigital.com

1.  Head Shot: High Resolution (if not already sent)
2. Email address and Telephone/Twitter –Instagram Info
3.  Address (for campaign contribution checks :-)
4.  Narrative 100 - 150 word count-to be strictly enforced--
5.  Facebook & Website link
6.  Video of Candidate Speaking-no longer than 3 minutes

Please send your video to  Ms. Funkhouser  and she will upload that to Hometown’s YouTube Channel and use that same video on the  HometownKeyWest.com  website. If you already have your own YouTube Channel and would prefer we use one of your existing YouTube videos (not exceeding three minutes), please send the URL of the page that has the video you would like.

Please keep in mind: Hometown cannot process your information if received in bits and pieces.

“It is important for voters to have access to candidate information before the Mail by Vote ballots land in voters’ mailboxes,” said Hometown Board Chairman Todd German. “Our mission is simple - Informed Voters Promote Good Government.”

It is uncertain when future events will be held prior to the primary. The primary deals in large part with contested partisan county, state and federal races to be ultimately decided in the November election. It is, however, a misnomer as to other non-partisan races such as Key West mayor and city commissioners, school board, etc—for these offices, it is the general election.

If candidates are limited in holding a pre-primary rally, and Hometown does not conduct events and forums that enable candidates to meet with and discuss issues with voters, then you, the other candidates, the voters, and the community are without the means to understand and opine on significant matters that may well alter our future.

Some candidates have already sent in a photo, contact info, and a brief statement. See for example,  Craig Cates Danise “DeeDee” Henriquez , and  Robby Majesk a . (Go to  hometownkeywest.com  and click on 2020 Elections and then click on the name of the candidate.)
DEADLINE —in order to be posted, Hometown must receive everything as soon as possible and in any event, no later than April 30. If you do not want to post everything requested or anything at all, that is your choice. Just please let us know. Thanks.

Why would you not take advantage of this?
Send in your info as listed (#1 to #6) above. 

What are you waiting for?

Reef Relief's Virtual Marine Science Lessons 
When schools closed all over the United States and the world, Reef Relief knew we had to do something to allow for students to continue their science education and to help parents keep their children busy! Since then, we have created virtual marine science lessons that are presented every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on our "Facebook Live" platform ( www.facebook.com/reefrelief ) . Each lesson comes with supplemental worksheets, activities, and videos that you can find here:  www.reefrelief.org/blog . These lessons are 100% free of charge and start at 10:30am EST. If you can not attend a "live" session, you can watch all recorded episodes on our Youtube channel the next day at:  www.youtube.com/reefrelief .
  Please share with parents, teachers and schools! Lessons are designed for students in pre K to 8th grade but, anyone is welcome to participate.  
Donate $10 to Help Support our Virtual Classroom Programs and Receive a Buff!
Reef Relief is offering a special sale on our buffs in order
 to help our community and followers cover and protect their face while partaking in essential activities such as grocery shopping, picking up medication, and exercising. 
Our buffs are regularly priced at $15 but, if you donate $10 to help support our programs such as our new marine science virtual classroom, you will receive a Reef Relief protective buff!
Coral Camp for Kids (Ages 6-12) registration information and the Coral Camp for Big Kids (Students entering 6th-9th grade) application packet will both be available on our website on  May 1st.   
COVID-19 is creating large uncertainty as to when the Florida Keys will open up and return to normal. As of today, camp is scheduled to operate as normal but, this issue is being closely looked at and could very likely change.

 In order to have an organized registration process, all campers registering for camp for the month of June (Session 1: June 1-5 , Session 2: June 8-12, Session 3: June 15-19, Session 4: June 22-26) will not be required to pay until the first day of camp. In the event we do have to cancel the first few weeks of camp, this will allow for an easy cancellation process. Big Kids Camp is scheduled for August 3-7. Please contact us for more information on Coral Camp for Big Kids (flyer attached below) or  click here.
