To fund his friend’s efforts to court the resourceful lady Portia, Venetian merchant Antonio borrows money from the much-abused Shylock. When Antonio defaults on his loan, Shylock demands his due: a pound of the merchant’s flesh. Shakespeare’s provocative comedy asks tough questions about mercy, justice, and belonging that resonate today. Tony Simotes, artistic director of Shakespeare & Company, returns to UMass to direct alumnus Stephen Driscoll ’73** as Shylock in this production.

Bad Company's Simon Kirke and Amy Fairchild are combining their talents, for a limited number of shows this fall, and this is the first one. Sharing a band, each will be showcasing their own material and collaborating on some fan favorites from their respective musical careers. Simon Kirke (officialsimonkirke.com) first hit American shores in 1969 as the drummer in Free, when they opened for Blind Faith at Madison Square Garden. Over the next few years, Free's impact on rock music was immense. Allmusic notes that the band "helped lay the foundations for the rise of hard rock, stripping the earthy sound of British blues down to its raw, minimalist core", and Kirke's stylized drumming was a crucial part of that sound. In 1974, Kirke and Paul Rogers formed Bad Company, and their self-titled first CD went on to sell over 10 million copies. In addition to his years with Free and Bad Company, Kirke has also worked with countless other legends including Bo Diddley, Wilson Pickett, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ronnie Wood, Ray Charles, and four tours with the Ringo Starr All-star Band. Despite all the success as one of rock music's most in-demand drummers, Kirke had another musical itch he wanted to scratch, and in 2011, he stepped out on his own with his first solo album. Filling the Void, on Megaforce Records. Kirke wrote or co-wrote all of the tracks on Filling The Void, playing not only drums, but guitars, bass, and keyboards as well. Commenting on the CD, he said, "I've been writing songs for many, many years and I just wanted to get them out, like an exorcism."The result was an autobiographical look back at where he had been over the previous ten years. Rolling Stone called it, "a heartfelt disc that evokes eminent West Coast singer-songwriters, particularly Jackson Browne and Don Henley". Amy Fairchild (amyfairchild.com) has had much success in her musical career, including winning both the NYC Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999, and the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition in 2001, (putting her in the company of past winners Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett and Nancy Griffith). Fairchild truly came into her own when she teamed up with songwriter/producer/multi-instumentalist Adam Steinberg and in 2002 released, Mr Heart. Songs from this record were placed in independent films, TV shows, including Dawson's Creek, and Joan of Arcadia, and the stage show, Spiderman Live!. She also received high honors in multiple songwriting contests, including consecutive first place honors in The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, with "Falling Down" taking the contest's 2002 Maxell Song of the Year, and also won the Billboard World Song Competition. Dave Marsh of Rolling Stone said, "If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you'd be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good." Now living in Boston, she released her third album in June 2014, the eponymous, "Amy Fairchild", also produced by Steinberg, with guest appearances by Jim Weider on guitar (The Band) and Jon Graboff on pedal steel (The Cardinals, Ron Sexsmith, Nora Jones). "Her new album is a masterstroke of hooky melodies and razor-sharp lyrics that address the never-easy battlefield of the heart. It's all held together by Fairchild's richly charismatic voice, which moves through the many moods on this album with a ruthless honesty that captivates throughout" - Steve Morse

This week we'll be meeting directly at Josiah Quincy School (where we went to last session after Boston Ultimate Fitness) When the weather takes a nasty turn we'll be having lessons indoors!
At a Project Freerun Parkour 101 Clinic, we will introduce you to the art and world of Parkour. The philosophy of Parkour - to be strong is to be useful will be our focus and feel of the sessions, something to show how the mentality behind Parkour will apply to not only physical obstacles and challenges, but mental hurdles aswell. Students will learn the core foundation skills of Parkour, such as proper landing and rolling technique, obstacle vaulting, balance, wall running and more.
What to Expect:
At Parkour 101, we will be learning progressively how to move and work the techniques of Parkour to become more efficient and in control of our biggest and best possession – our bodies. You should expect and dress to be moving around freely, on all 4’s, jumping, bounding and most importantly having fun. Class structure is based on a basic formula of:
What to Bring:
Shoes: Bring shoes that are made for running/active wear. Think low profile, strong arch and light construction. Bad examples: Crocs, Hiking Boots, Skateshoes.
Clothing: Wear comfortable clothing, something that wont constrict movement but also isnt baggy enough to fall off/trip over. Bring a sweatshirt to aid in some movements on ground and for outdoor sessions.
Accessories: Not necessary, but its a good idea to bring water. Some athletes bring towels for sweat, foam rollers to warm up with, and even tape for small cuts and injuries. Again, not a requirement but pack accordingly to the sport!
Warm up – Skill Round 1 – Skill Round 2 – Conditioning and cool down
October 18th, 2014
Our first lesson will be a very basic round, something to get introduced to Parkour, our warmups and movements before we take our skills outdoors or really dig deep into progressing even the most basic skills. This first class will be slow paced enough to allow anyone to jump in, and most importantly to learn the safety features of Parkour as to reduce injury in the future.
We will end class with an optional training session outdoors, where we’d love to see you all come train freely!

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting.
What if I have to miss a session? Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.
What Mommybites Moms are Saying:
Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...
The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...
I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!
