Apr. 30, 2023 / Press Release
Outdoor Stage2

This year’s programming includes a new Monday Night at the Movies film series, concerts, stand-up comedy, family programming and much more. The 2023 summer season will kick off with a special performance of A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters performed by award-winning actors John Weltman and Linda Monchik. This performance will serve as a kick off to the summer season in honor of John Weltman, who's generous donation in partnership with the Massachusetts Cultural Council, funded the new outdoor performance area affectionately, now known as Tangle-Tuit. The season kick-off performance takes place on Saturday, May 20, and will feature a reception in the art gallery prior to the performance when winners of a love letter contest will be revealed. This event is free and open to the public.

“We wanted to provide more variety in our programming this year, so I engaged Jim Gilbert, who was instrumental in launching our Tangletuit inaugural season as well as all our streaming and video technology during and post-covid. In addition to planning an exciting array of concerts, Jim had the idea of introducing a series of popular movies, each with a music industry theme. He also partnered with Boston based John Tobin Presents to produce a mini-series of stand up comedy events we’re calling The Comedy Garden at Tangletuit.” says David Kuehn, the Center’s executive director.
