Stump Swamp/Norwood Farm Hike
Aug 6 @ 8:00 am
Stump Swamp/Norwood Farm Hike

Duration
2 Hours

About
Two island ecosystems, a shrub swamp wetland and island moors dotted with kettle holes makes for fascinating hike through a section of the island molded by 500 feet of ice bearing down on it 21,000 years ago. A trail meanders along the edge of the Stump Swamp offering views of water and the birds that reside here. Connecting with Almanac Pond Road, the trail continues past Almanac Pond, a kettle hole itself, and over into the Nantucket Islands Land Bank’s portion of Norwood Farm, the result of a joint purchase of 207 acres with the Nantucket Conservation Foundation.

Norwood Farm is a unique mashup of much of the island’s terrain including forest, upland meadows, small ponds, a former cranberry bog and one of the island’s true flowing streams. This dual property hike can last 90-120 minutes depending on the group’s interest in seeing more or less of the area.

This hike costs $40 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. Check the Hike Calendar to see when we are hiking the Stump Swamp/Norwood Farm trail and to book it. To arrange for a private hike on this route, call or email us for our rates and to discuss your hiking needs.

Seussical the Musical @ Bartlett's Farm

Dr. Seuss’ beloved characters characters come to life in this musical tale; including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Seussical is fun for the whole family!

Performances run July 23 – August 10th at 10:30am; Saturday’s at 1:00pm in Bennett Hall.

History of The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company with Bill Lynn @ Nantucket Whaling Museum
Aug 6 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
History of The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company with Bill Lynn @ Nantucket Whaling Museum

The Herreshoff Manufacturing Company (HMCo.) was founded in 1878 and operated until 1945. It was founded by brothers John Brown Herreshoff and his younger but better-known brother Nathaniel Greene Herreshoff, the “Wizard of Bristol”. HMCo. designed and built over 2,400 boats, both power and sail, including the mega-yacht RELIANCE, the largest boat to ever sail in the America’s Cup. RELIANCE, built for the 1903 America’s Cup races, was a package of superlatives relating to its advanced structural and materials engineering, the number of crew required to sail it, its incredibly short build time and it’s sheer size.

In its heyday, HMCo. was a global leader in industrial design, engineering, naval architecture, disruptive innovation and post-Industrial Revolution New England manufacturing. Many of the techniques and processes pioneered by HMCo. are still used today, and the rise and fall of HMCo. still holds many compelling lessons for today’s business leaders.

Bill Lynn serves as President and Executive Director of the Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol, RI. A lifelong sailor and classic yachting enthusiast with a background in marketing and communications, Bill is leading the transformation of the Herreshoff Marine Museum from a relatively undiscovered treasure to the vibrant, inspirational cultural and educational institution that he, the HMM staff and the HMM Board of Directors believe it has the potential to be.

Bill also serves as Managing Director of the Classic Yacht Owners Association, an organization founded to help promote classic yacht ownership, encourage fair and friendly competition among owners and to add value to the classic yacht ownership experience. CYOA administers the CRF rating rule and is the organizer of the Classic Yachts Challenge Series.

Grease by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs @ Bennett Hall
Aug 6 @ 7:00 pm
Grease by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs @ Bennett Hall

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hubcaps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby socks and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious.

At the heart of the story is the romance between hot- rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance over the summer, but now back in the context of school, peer pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “We Go Together,” and “Mooning,” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens!
