META Performing Arts is presenting Disney's The Little Mermaid Broadway version for a three week run beginning March 10th. 
In Disney's beguiling animated romp, rebellious 16-year-old mermaid Ariel is fascinated with life on land. On one of her visits to the surface, which are forbidden by her controlling father, King Triton, she falls for a human prince. Determined to be with her new love, Ariel makes a dangerous deal with the Sea Witch Ursula to become human for three days. But when plans go awry for the star-crossed lovers, the king must make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter.

La La Land finally comes to the Lincoln's screen beginning Monday, March 27 at 7:30pm. La La Land made history in January, breaking the record for most Golden Globes won by a single film after winning all seven of the awards it was nominated for. Then the spectacular film was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, tying with All About Eve and Titanic for the most nominations of all time. On the day of the big show on February 26, it didn't break records for most Oscars won, but it did take home six including the best picture Oscar (for, like, 30 seconds.) 
The story of Mia, an aspiring actress, and Sebastian, a dedicated jazz musician, struggling to make ends meet while pursuing their dreams in a city known for destroying hopes and breaking hearts. With modern day Los Angeles as the backdrop, this musical about everyday life explores what is more important: a once-in-a-lifetime love or the spotlight.

In the Art Bar: Jeff Whidden

A middle school art teacher by day, Jeff Whidden enjoys capturing fleeting moments in nature with his camera.  His passion for surreal, abstract and impressionist art influence his approach to photography and are expressed in a series of images taken on the slopes of Little Mountain, right here in Mount Vernon. With the intent to encourage daydreaming, he is calling the series “Imagining Little Mountain.” Except for some manipulation of color, these pictures are pretty much straight out of the camera.
