Oct.8-26, Civil War through Eyes of Thomas Nast

The Civil War through the Eyes of Thomas Nast. Throughout much of October there will be Tours, Workshops, Classes and Demonstrations  at Macculloch Hall Historical Museum. Before radio, TV or the internet, there was political cartoonist Thomas Nast. Nast illustrated battles, Union and Confederate troop movements, and their activities throughout the Civil war. He also captured the poignancy of those back home, who worried about their family members in combat. His work was the main source of information about the war for many people. His illustrations in publications like Harper’s Weekly brought the information about what was happening into the homes of the American public, the way mass media does today. Like all media agents, he not only depicted what was happening but also created propaganda by trying to stir emotions and support for the Union side. Mounted to commemorate the Civil War sesquicentennial (2011-2015), this second floor exhibit will include a number of these stirring images. The exhibit runs through August 2015.

October 27, 2014

Shakespeare Theatre of NJ’s 5th annual Something Wicked This Way Comes

This popular one-night only event kicks off Halloween week. This 90 minute delightfully bone-chilling evening is a ghoulish collage of dramatic readings from the classic canon of the macabre including Shakespeare, Poe and Lovecraft. “The stories come alive in front of an audience. We combine talented storytelling and haunting music to create a wonderfully spooky atmosphere,” says Director Brian Crowe.

Composer, musician and a prominent theremin player, John Hoge, will provide the music for this unique evening. The only instrument played without physical contact, the theremin is one of the first electronic instruments and became the iconic sound signature of  hundreds of B horror movies in the first half of the 20th century.  Now enjoying a resurgence, it is used by rock bands and symphonies.  Hoge has performed with the NY Theremin Society, is the editor of ThereminWorld.com and can be heard on Spellbound, the internet radio theremin show. He has also composed music for and worked as sound designer for various theatres such as The Public Theater of NY, The Shakespeare Theatre of NJ and Indiana Repertory Theatre. For many years, he worked as an organist and conductor in NYC churches.

Old Bottles, Potions and Elixirs at Morris Museum

Examine old bottles from the Museum’s collection and learn what they can teach us about their contents, manufacturing methods, and the time from which they came. But don’t let their claims fool you – in a time of little regulation, what was labeled as a “cure” could have been a poison to the consumer.
