If you thought The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was a wild ride, then this “lost play” will knock your socks off! Rowdy, rollicking, zany, silly and irreverent, this is a great production to introduce youngsters to Shakespeare in madcap fashion. Enjoy watching Shakespeare get “roasted” in this wacky spoof as you sit under the stars and witness every character the Bard ever wrote go crashing into each other! We will once again be offering FREE tickets to young people 18 and under, and discounted tickets for customers of Bank of America — our long-time sponsor of the Outdoor Stage.

The 1957 award-winning film, starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn, was based on this great American stage classic, as was the musical, 110 in the Shade. Author N. Richard Nash calls the play a romantic comedy but it is so much more. Set in rural, dust-bowl America, it is about a parched land desperate for rain, and the tough but lonely people who live there, thirsting for love. This is a play about yearning, family, hope, and the magic that sometimes pours down on us from the unlikeliest of sources.

By popular demand, we are thrilled to have Marjorie Wang return to the Madison Library once again to talk about tea! This time, we are in for a sweet treat along with the tea - cupcakes!
Marjorie will be teaming up with a baker who specializes in cupcakes, and will be coordinating with Fred to develop the cupcake pairings. At the moment, they are anticipating a green tea paired with a lemon ginger cupcake, an oolong with an espresso chocolate, and a red tea with a blackberry cupcake. This is subject to change. But, whatever, the pairings, we can guarantee that you won't be disappointed!
Register early as this will definitely fill up fast!

What may be a surprise to many Morris County residents is that within a short driving distance there are hundreds of public gardens. Most of them are free and offer an incredible variety of plants and designs. In some instances these gardens were once part of a private estate and the original mansion may be open for viewing. This presentation covers a range of gardens from pocket size to multi-acre arboretums. Pictures are shown of each garden along with access information and the speaker’s highly subjective rating. A list of all local gardens will be provided.
This program will be presented by Bill Moran, Speaker's Bureau Master Gardeners of Morris County Rutgers Cooperative Extension.
