Southern Oregon Lavender Loop


Introducing  Southern Oregon Lavender Loop!

At the Southern Oregon Visitors Association symposium last week I met a few “Lavender Ladies”.  They offered up a huge serving plate of homemade lavender shortbread dipped in chocolate.  Of course many of us had to sample; and just to make sure that what we were tasting wasn’t a fluke, go back for seconds — err o.k. thirds.

In recent years, nestled among the wineries, some lavender farms have cropped up in the Applegate Valley.  I can barely wait until the mid-summer when the lavender is blooming and the lavender farms, gardens and nurseries are open to the public.  What a lovely way space out the wine tasting, by walking through lavender fields!

July 12–14, 2013 the Southern Oregon Lavender Loop will put on a festival in Jacksonville. For more information, on the festival, please go the Oregon Lavender Destinations website. For specific information about the individual lavender farms, and a map of the Applegate go to the Southern Oregon Lavender Loop’s Facebook page. For more ideas on day trips throughout the Rogue Valley

Shrek The Musical at the Craterian


Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

Shrek The Musical

This hilarious, high-spirited Broadway hit draws its inspiration from the hugely popular movie, a sardonically witty, yet touching fractured fairy tale featuring a lovable ogre, a wise-cracking donkey, a pint-sized, big-headed villain, and a damsel in distress, who is more than she seems.

Boasting a book and score by award-winning writers Jeanine Tesori and David Lindsay-Abaire, Shrek the Musical is family entertainment at its most sublime!

VocaPeople at the Craterian


VocaPeople

VocaPeople

VocaPeople an a capella group at the Craterian

This internationally renowned vocal ensemble takes the art of a capella singing into the stratosphere.

But then that’s only natural: they claim to be extraterrestrials from a planet where people communicate exclusively through music. Whatever their origin (rumor has it they’re actually from Israel), Voca People produces a truly intergalactic sound by melding soaring vocals and beat-box wizardry. You’ve never seen or heard anything like them!

Ashland Contemporary Theater, “Pompadour”


Ashland Contemporary Theater premiers Pompadour — a new play by Molly Best Tinsley

Pompadour at Ashland Contemporary Theater

Pompadour” at Ashland Contemporary Theater

Pompadour” plays three weekends starting January 19th, produced by Ashland Contemporary Theater, at the Ashland Community Center, 59 Winburn Way.

Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm, from Jan. 19  thru  Feb. 3.
Tickets: Regular admission: $15  Senior/student, $12.

Tickets can be bought at Paddington Station in Ashland, and Grocery Outlet in Medford, as well as online on the ACT website, by credit card thru Paypal.

Ashland Contemporary Theater presents the play as though you were a guest at the tiny private theater in Versailles — which means seating is limited.  ADVANCE PURCHASE is recommended.

Voltaire called Mme Pompadour a “soul born sincere,” “with good sense,” and “justice in her heart.”

Tinsley’s play begins at the end, when Pompadour has had a potentially fatal confrontation with the King’s latest young lover.  As she clings to life in her chambers at Versailles, she begins to make sense of her own. Read More

Nordic Ski Weekend at Mt. Shasta


Mt. Shasta Nordic Ski Weekend

Southern Oregon Nordic Ski Club is hosting its “annual” ski weekend at Mt. Shasta.

Save the weekend of January 11–13, 2013. Edgar & Karen are planning the somewhat annual Mt. Shasta Nordic Ski Weekend with details to come.

The traditional Mt. Shasta weekend can be a full 3-day outing or a one-day event. Your choice, with the big “wine and cheese” after ski gathering and dinner on Saturday January 12th.

While past Mt. Shasta events have been postponed or canceled because of too much snow, or too little snow, we are planning, or at least wishing, for a Mama Bear amount of snow this season.

Check with Edgar & Karen Hee  541 734‑4872, for information and details.
