News from Chelsea Prospers, the city’s community initiative

Menorah Lighting & Public Art

Sunday, November 28, 2021

6 pm to 8 pm

Chelsea Square

The annual Hanukkah-themed celebration in Chelsea Square is expanding this year. On Second Street there will be an illuminated mobile art display called “Brighter Revealed.” Artists Tova Speter and Emily Bhargava focused on sharing the light and vibrancy we each have to offer. Commissioned by JArts Boston and incorporating artwork created by students and local partners throughout the Greater Boston area, this large-scale beacon reveals the inner strength and bright spirit contained within our community. The celebration of Hanukkah centers around sharing the miracle of light amidst darkness and the triumph of freedom prevailing over persecution. By bringing communities together to create art and by publicly showcasing their collaborative work, the work seeks to not only highlight the past miracle of Hanukkah, but also to reveal and acknowledge the present-day miracles, inspiration, and collective strength found in our Boston community.

 

At 6:30 gather with members of Tobin Bridge Chabad, Temple Emmanuel and Walnut St Synagogue for the lighting of the public menorah with song, prayer and refreshments.

Play Street Pilot on Walnut Street

Monday, December 6, 2021

2:30 to 4:30 pm

Walnut Street beside the Williams School

 

Play Streets are sometimes called Peatoniños (aggregation of the Spanish words for pedestrian + child). They’ve been hosted in cities for more than 100 years and all around the world.

 

Well more than half of the land in Chelsea is devoted to roadways. In cities like Chelsea with limited open space and lots of people, play streets are a way to reclaim, if only in a temporary way, some of this space for kids to engage in active play.

 

For the past several months a team of graduate students at UMass Boston, informed by a group of middle school students meeting at the Williams School, have been designing and planning a one day pilot of what a play street might look like in Chelsea. They’re trying out their ideas in this one afternoon event.

 

This effort is part of a project to revisit how the City of Chelsea regulates the use of public spaces for people-oriented, community uses.

 

Apollinaire Theatre Presents The Importance of Being Earnest

“One of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time.” —The Stage
“The most perfect comedy in the English language.” —London Telegraph
4 actors take on 9 characters for 15 nights of high octane fun with Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest! Join us for this classic comedy as some of Apollinaire’s favorite actors bring you on their wild ride through this Wilde production.
Actors Brooks Reeves (The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, Hamlet), Kody Grassett (The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart), Ron Lacey (Uncle Vanya, Pool No Water), and Apollinaire newcomer Abigail Erdelatz play the young romantics who fall in love with Ernest, the irresistible bad boy of London society. The trouble is, Ernest doesn’t exist. Under the watchful eye of Lady Bracknell(s), will the pairs of young lovers untangle their own web of lies, and will the newly minted Ernest win her approval despite an unlikely start in life in a handbag abandoned at Victoria Station?
Oscar Wilde’s “Trivial Comedy for Serious People” has entertained with its on-point social satire for over a century. Wilde’s much loved masterpiece throws love, logic, and language in the air for a dazzling evening of theatrical fireworks.

Oscar Wilde (born October 16, 1854, Dublin, Ireland—died November 30, 1900, Paris, France) was an Irish poet and playwright. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays including his comic masterpieces Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the circumstances of his criminal conviction for “gross indecency” and subsequent imprisonment.
