 Copeland Lecture Hall Gerald Charles Dickens, great-great-grandson of the author Charles Dickens, returns by popular demand after his sold-out performances at Winterthur of A Christmas Carol. His fascination with the life and works of Charles Dickens led him to write and direct further one-man shows. This performance features two, one-hour shows—A Child’s Journey with Dickens and Mr. Dickens Is Coming!. There is one intermission and a meet and greet follows the performance. $10 per Member. $15 per nonmember. $8 for children 12 and under. To purchase tickets, please call 800.448.3883 or order online. A Child’s Journey with Dickens When Dickens returned to America in 1868 he was old, in poor health, and in constant fear for his safety following a narrow escape in a rail disaster a few years earlier. At the heart of this show is a young girl’s, Kate Douglas Wiggin, memory of meeting the great man on a train journey in New England, and Dickens’s enchantment with both her boldness and innocence. An enchanting tale for all ages! 
Mr. Dickens Is Coming! This entertaining, one-man show presents a light-hearted and varied look at the life of Charles Dickens as seen through the lens of his colorful characters, diary extracts, and observations by the people who knew him. Gerald Charles Dickens, great-great-grandson of the author, adds in a few of his own 21st- century views, painting a masterly picture of his famous ancestor with words, gestures, and feelings.

  • Bootless Stageworks : Time: 8:00 PM- 10:00 PM Location: Bootless Stageworks Description: Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. Writers Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as we watch the cast of memorable characters – all brought together seeking refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies. The zombies and humans alike take part in the memorable show tunes, original songs inspired from such disparate sources as George Gershwin and Green Day – complete with tap dancing, power ballads and street-smart rapping zombies. Musical of the Living Dead is a hysterical, hummable, 4D zombie doomsday adventure complete with Bootless’ infamous The Pit Splatter Zone ever.

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Location: 1 Hoffman's Mill Rd, Chadds Ford, PA 19317 Description: NEW TERRAINS: AMERICAN PAINTINGS FROM THE RICHARD M. SCAIFE BEQUEST Included with Museum admission New Terrains presents over twenty-five important works of American art from Richard M. Scaife, a Pittsburgh philanthropist and former trustee of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art. The exhibition showcases paintings by artists that are new to the collection, such as Hudson River School painters Martin Johnson Heade, John Kensett, and Albert Bierstadt, whose luminous, contemplative views of nature influenced the grand tradition of mid-nineteenth-century landscape painting in America. Other exciting introductions to the collection through the Scaife bequest are works by American impressionists William Merritt Chase, Theodore Robinson, and Edward Redfield, Julian Alden Weir and others. These late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century artists changed the course of American landscape painting through their adaptation of trends in European art. Their interpretive approach to rendering their surroundings with vibrant color and energetic brushwork is amply demonstrated in the exhibition. These paintings and more featured in New Terrains honor Richard Scaife and his generous vision for the Brandywine and represents a milestone in the museum’s collection of American art.

  • Brandywine River Museum of Art: Time: 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Location: Brandywine River Museum of Art Description: Flowery Thoughts: Ceramic Vases & Floral Ornament at Winterthur. Since antiquity, humans have been fascinated by the beauty of flowers. They created special containers to hold the blooms, reproduced flat images of flora on surfaces or, alternatively, modeled flowers in three dimensions. In this exhibit, Leslie B. Grigsby, Winterthur’s Senior Curator of Ceramics & Glass, presents a selection of some of the enormous range of ceramic vases and floral-decorated wares from the Winterthur Museum collection. These eye-catching objects primarily date from the 1700s and 1800s and, variously, were produced in America, Europe and Asia. The high-fashion wares among these ceramics originally found homes in elegant settings, while other objects reflect what was enjoyed by those of lesser means. Some of the featured floral designs studiously imitate imagery from botanical publications, while others display a freedom and originality not expressed in Nature.

In Delaware, very few families applied for grants last year. That’s why we are reaching out to you, as a broadcaster, because we know you are committed to informing your listeners about important issues such as this that will inform listeners about the foundation and encourage them to apply for grants. We created a Public Service Announcement campaign, to encourage parents and legal guardians to apply for grants of up to $5,000 (lifetime maximum of $10,000 per child) to help pay for medical services and equipment such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, counseling services, surgeries, prescriptions, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and hearing aids by completing an online application at www.uhccf.org; there is no deadline. Grants are available for medical expenses families have incurred 60 days prior to the date of application as well as for ongoing and future medical needs. To be eligible for a grant, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Families must meet economic guidelines, reside in the United States and have a commercial health insurance plan. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible. Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded over 10,000 grants valued at more than $29 million to children and their families across the United States for treatments associated with medical conditions such as cancer, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, hearing loss, autism, cystic fibrosis, Down syndrome, ADHD and cerebral palsy. Your radio station serves as a vital link in getting out important health information to the public.

  • Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library: Made in the Americas: The New World Discovers Asia examines the profound influence of Asia on the arts of the colonial Americas. Featuring some of the most extraordinary objects produced in the Americas, this scholarly exhibition is the first, Pan-American study to explore how craftsmen across North, Central, and South America adapted Asian styles in a range of media—from furniture to silverwork, textiles, ceramics, and painting. Exquisite objects from Mexico City, Lima, Quito, Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, dating from the 17th to the early 19th centuries, include folding screens made in Mexico in imitation of imported Japanese and Chinese screens, blue and white talavera ceramics copied from imported Chinese porcelains, and luxuriously woven textiles made to replicate fine silks and cottons imported from China and India. Time: 10:00am-5:00pm (Tuesday-Sunday). Location: 5105 Kennett Pike, Wilmington DE, 19807. Exhibition presented by DuPont, Glenmede and John L. and Marjorie P. McGraw with additional support from M&T Bank and Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP. This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.For more information contact: Information & tours, 800.448.3883 or visit www.winterthur.org/madeintheamericas
