Newton's Festival of The Arts!

Newton's amazing Spring Festival of the Arts in coming to an end soon. But if you're looking for some family-friendly fun this weekend- check out these events that still haven't finished and take part in the community fun!

"The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde

Friday, June 3 & Saturday June 4, 7:30pm
$20 Adults, $15 Students & Seniors
Newton Cultural Center at City Hall

Originally produced in 1895 London, this farcical comedy treats triviality of the utmost social importance, and "minor" themes such as marriage, education and morality as inconsequential matters.  The results are a comedy of the highest order. Jack and Algy, two ne'er-do-well best friends, live double lives. They are upright citizens in certain social circles, and rascals under the same pseudonym of Ernest everywhere else!  When their façade is discovered the fun really begins!  


Spring Juried Art Show
Newton Open Studios
Now- June 17, Weekdays 8am to 6pm
Newton City Hall, 2nd Floor Hallway                                                                

NOS artists were asked to submit works that represent a new direction. The new direction might be an experiment, a conscious reinvention, or an accidental discovery. For each of these artists, this pivot has created fertile new ground for creativity. Conceived and Juried by Casey Curry, Manager of Exhibitions at the New Art Center
