TOUCH OF RAPTURE
WHEN: January 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 320 Sawkill Road, Kingston
“Touch of Rapture,” a new comedy by Fengar Gael, is TheaterSounds’ first production of the new year. A magic, romantic comedy celebrating the love of art and the art of love.
As she lies dying, Quince Dillingham’s wife Clovis clasps his hands, thereby passing to him her artistic gift for sculpting. His wife’s sister recognizes Clovis’ genius now in Quince’s work. At first she threatens to expose him as a thief but then conspires with him. Ultimately the artistic talent is passed to another, as the play explores art as creation versus art as commodity, the relationship of art to character, and the mystery surrounding an artist’s legacy.
Marnie Andrews* stars, supported by James Occhino* and Eileen Schuyler*.
Jonathan VanGieson directs.

Have you experienced Cosmic contact or think you may have? At times do you feel separate yet connected to something, somewhere else? Perhaps you have physical anomalies that perplex health care practitioners! If you resonate with any of these or other remarkable aspects of yourself then learning about your Cosmic lineage may offer you solace. Opening to your Cosmic Family can allow a shift in perception, alignment with higher integrity and promote well being.
Darlene Van de Grift, Transformational Counselor and Medical Intuitive, returns to Sage from her 4 year hiatus to share experiences, lessons and methods to deepen your connection with your Cosmic Family.
