Movie: Dolittle @ The Dreamland

After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Robert Downey Jr.), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley, Wild Rose) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures. The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Dunkirk’s Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Oscar (R) winner Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Oscar (R) winner Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena, Bumblebee) and a headstrong parrot (Oscar (R) winner Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.

His father (Gerald McRaney) is an imperious sort who continually lambastes Bastian for daydreaming and falling behind in school. On top of his father’s badgering, he has to contend with a bunch of school bullies waiting for him in the schoolyard. One day he decides to play hooky and walks into a strange bookstore, where in the attic, he discovers a book called “The Neverending Story”. As Bastian reads the book, he’s enveloped in the unfolding tale. A sickly child-like empress (Tami Stronach) from a land called Fantasia is concerned about who will take over the land if she dies. She decides it is best for Fantasia if she remains alive, so she dispatches a young warrior named Atreju (Noah Hathaway) to find a cure for the empress’s malady. It turns out the land is consumed with a plague called The Nothing, generated by blighted dreams and hopeless fantasies. As Atreju continues onward to search for a cure for The Nothing, he encounters an assortment of strange creatures. Bastian is so consumed with the tale that he finds himself catapulted into the land of Fantasia himself. Atreju realizes that the only way to save the land from its blight is with the help of this strange earth boy, Bastian

Class: The Musical Genius of Richard Rogers @ Nantucket Atheneum

American composer Richard Charles Rodgers (1902 – 1979) was one of the most significant composers of the 20th century whose work significantly impacted popular music. The first creative to win an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards), he wrote or co-wrote 43 Broadway musicals and over 900 songs.

Rogers is best known for his songwriting partnerships with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s the Rogers & Hart duo wrote Pal Joey, A Connecticut Yankee, On Your Toes and Babes in Arms. In the 1940s and 1950s Rogers & Hammerstein created Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. Rogers & Hammerstein are celebrated for bringing the Broadway musical to a new maturity.
With the assistance of recordings and video, Mollie Glazer takes the class through the prodigious work of Richard Rogers and shows how the Queens-born composer reshaped American music.

Glazer studied the cello and viola de gamba at New England Conservatory and the Royal Conservatory of The Netherlands. She has taught island musicians cello, ukulele, piano and string ensemble as well as served as artistic director at the Nantucket Community Music Center.
