Quincy Smelter Tour

Shows & Events
11:00 AM To 03:00 PM
Location: Hancock
$5/person, children under 10 free, AAA discount. The Quincy Smelter Association hosts tours monthly so visitors such as yourself can see the only intact copper smelter from the American Industrial Revolution around the turn of the 20th Century. See much of the original machinery used to turn ore into copper ingots. Not only can you see the original equipment from the smelter's construction in 1898. But our guides will point out the major changes in the Great Expansion of 1920. We look forward to showing this and much more. Since much of the tour is spent in the buildings, this is a great event even on rainy days. Directions: Turn right after crossing the bridge on to M-26, go 1/4 mile to the sign on the right. The smelter is a former industrial site. We recommend wearing closed shoes for your safety.

Aquila Theatre presents: Romeo & Juliet at Rozsa Center

Arts &Theater
08:00 PM
Location: Rosza Center, Houghton
Recognized world-wise as one of theater's most iconic couples, Romeo & Juliet are the very archetype of tragic young lovers. Set against the backdrop of warring households, as young Romeo sneaks into a masked ball where he first beholds Juliet and in thunderstruck by Cupid's arrow. As fate dictates, they succumb to the passion of forbidden love against the will of their powerful and unforgiving families. So ensues a story of romance, murder and tragedy as famous as any that has graced the stage. Through Shakespeare's beautiful prose, these star crossed lovers, in Aquila Theatre's striking and moving adaption of the Bard's classic tragedy, will take your breath away. Aquila Theatre will bring its innovative style and dynamic physical approach to Shakespeare's most famous and heart-breaking play. The New Yorker has raved that Aquila Theatre's productions are "Beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect."

Ethel's Documerica at Rozsa Center

Music
07:30 PM
Location: Rozsa Center, Houghton
ETHEL IS A PROGRESSIVE STRING QUARTET CREATING CONNECTION AND COMMUNITY THROUGH PROFOUND MUSICAL EXPERIENCE Documerica is a landmark visual and musical snapshot of America in the tumultuous 1970s. The work pairs ETHEL’s dynamic playing with the evocative imagery of the EPA’s Project Documerica in a synthesis of score and projections that explores Americans’ connection to their environment. A multimedia meditation interweaving over 3,000 vintage photographs from an astonishing trove of images from the National Archive, ETHEL commissioned the composer Mary Ellen Childs, Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr., Chickasaw Nation’s Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate and James Kimo Williams to create a work that seamlessly fuses contemporary composition with stunning projections by renowned artist Deborah Johnson of big sky vistas, ghost towns, mountains, and slices of urban environments. Coupled with ETHEL’s own original works, the commissioned music explores a range of American styles, genres and techniques — blues, jazz, Native American traditional, bluegrass, and old-time string band — filtered through a distinctly 21st-century lens.
