Changing Climate, Changing Fisheries: Florida and the Caribbean
at The Vero Beach Community Center, 7PM - 9PM. "Dr. Lindeman’s lecture for Pelican Island Audubon will focus on the effects of a changing climate and fisheries in the Southeast U.S. and Greater Caribbean. The increasing local and regional ocean heating has diverse cascading effects that include: shifts of some fisheries to the north, increased potential for algal blooms, physiological stresses on fishes, mangroves, and seagrasses that can modify reproduction and other ecological processes, and the loss of coral habitats to bleaching events. Ocean acidification is also changing the larval development processes of fishes and the prey they depend on. Other challenges are also present, yet, we are in the early stages of understanding what these processes mean for the future. Free. Open to the public.  For more info: pelicanislandaudubonsociety.wordpress.com ." Browse SupportStLucieCounty.com for more events. 2266 14th Avenue, Vero Beach

"Join us for a family friendly team scavenger hunt, have fun and raise funding for cancer research!

What is Hunt for Hope?

Hunt for Hope is an family friendly team scavenger hunt! Hunters will be given a list of items, some to find, some to snap a photo, some tasks to be performed. All funding raised from Hunt for Hope Florida will underwrite IBC research.

How do I join in the fun?
Sign up! Forms will be available starting early summer 2019.

The suggested $25 donation (or more if you wish) includes you in the activities for the afternoon.

What is IBC?

Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare but most fatal form of breast cancer. While it accounts for 2-6% of all breast cancers, the 5-year overall survival rate is 40%, as compared to near 90% for all types of breast cancer combined. Since IBC, inflammatory breast cancer, can not be detected until a stage III, so we need more research for this more aggressive breast cancer.

The IBC Network has funded at least seven major IBC research projects in the last few years with the Hunts. Your $$$ will directly support IBC research. Please share, please plan to attend, and ask friends and family to share and attend. We can only fund if you help. Thank you for allowing us, no, enabling us to fight IBC." www.theibcnetwork.org .

Become a Faerie Forrest Sponsor - Full Media Opening at the Port St Lucie Botanical Gardens
12PM - 2PM. (Date subject to change). "Faeries are mysterious and magical creatures (ask any child!) They’re selective and persnickety. After perusing the entire Treasure Coast, the PSL Botanical Gardens is pleased to acknowledge the faeries’ decision to soon call Port St Lucie home!

The faeries have selected a very special area within the PSL Botanical Gardens to call their own. Flitting among the ancient oaks, the faeries invite all children (young and old) to explore and commune. How many faeries can you spot among the trees? Could you name them? Have a favorite?

The Faerie Forrest will be a passive, open exploration area, not a playground. Imagination and a sense of magic is required.

Sponsorship opportunities for Faerie Faenatics, including a corporate sponsorship, are available for a limited time as outlined below. Are you interested in becoming a Faerie Faenatic or a Corporate Sponsor?" Opportunities range from $100 - $10,000. For more Information call Joleen today at 772-337-1959. www.facebook.com .

$43. "Chinese circus is a feast for the eyes, with non-stop action and brightly colored costumes on performers who seem to defy the laws of physics with acrobatics, contortion tricks, juggling acts and balancing feats. Cirque Mei comes directly from Hebei Province in the People's Republic of China, bringing with it a company of 40 elite circus activists and acrobats performing many of the most popular Chinese circus routines, including Hoop Diving, Lion Dance, Collective Bicycle Skills, Flying Meteors, Foot Juggling with Umbrellas, Female Contortion and the Ladder Balancing Act.

Chinese acrobatics has a long and proud history going back some 4,000 years. It developed from people's everyday lives, using instruments used in daily life like tables, chairs, jars, plates and bowls. Wushu, which is traditional group gymnastics, and the Lion Dance come from folk sport and games. Like so much of folk lore, Chinese acrobatics is the art of working people and was not considered theater-worthy. That has changed as skillful performers amazed audiences and led to a resurgence of interest in the national arts in China.

The Lion Dance evolved from an old folk dance in China. In the dance, there are two types of lion, the large, played by two acrobats, and the small, portrayed by one. They perform traditional movements of lions like rolling and jumping and portray the lion's strength and agility as well as the playful side of the King of Beasts.

Hoop Diving developed from the "Swallow Dance" of some 2,000 years ago where the acrobats imitated the flying movement of swallows as they leapt through the rings.

In Flying Meteors, the performer swings glass bowls that move like meteors in the sky. Using rope and two glass bowls filled with water, the performer does forward rolls and backward somersaults without spilling any water.

This spectacular performance is a colorful and lively celebration of the Chinese circus arts and a delight for the entire family." Browse SupportStLucieCounty.com for more events! 59 SW Flagler Avenue, Stuart

A Peter White Christmas with Euge Groove, Vincent Ingala and Lindsey Webster
at the Lyric Theatre. Show times at 6PM - 8PM, and 8:30PM - 10:30PM. $45. "Every year, Stuart has a White Christmas, or at least A Peter White Christmas as the guitarist, singer and songwriter comes to town with several of his closest friends. This year, Peter White will bring along Euge Groove, Vincent Ingala and Lindsey Webster to put their own special take on the music of the season. It's a rockin' good time and the very best way to get the holiday season underway. For White, who has been coming to The Lyric for years, the Christmas show is personal. "When I was a kid, Christmas was a big part of my life," he said, "My father taught me the recorder and we played Christmas music he arranged going door-to-door."

White did his first Christmas tour in 1995 and it was so popular that it became an annual event with White and his friends.

The musician who would become synonymous with jazz and Christmas grew, up in Luton, north of London. As a child, he played several musical instruments, including the clarinet, trombone, violin and piano. With the Beatles and Rolling Stones dominating the music world, he turned to the guitar. He started on the acoustic and then bought his first electric guitar as a teen and studied Hendrix, Clapton and Jimmy Page. His electric career came to a sudden end when his brother, Danny, accidentally started a fire that destroyed the guitar. White returned to the acoustic guitar and never looked back. He loved early Fleetwood Mac and was introduced to jazz by a friend. His ability to play multiple styles caught singer/songwriter Al Stewart's attention, first as a pianist and then as a guitarist. White played on Stewart's Top 10 album, The Year of the Cat, in 1976 and co-wrote "Time Passages," the hit title track on the next album. He spent 20 years as a sideman for Stewart and others, but in 1990, he set off on his own. His 1996 Caravan of Dreams sold more than 300,000 copies and he learned that jazz aficionados appreciated his musicianship. "I never thought I'd be in a position of having a career playing my instrumental music," he noted. "When I started out, that road wasn't opened to me. Then it worked."

Lyric favorite Euge Groove returns with his magic saxophone artistry. Groove, whose real name is Steve Grove, began playing the piano in the second grade. He turned to the sax when he was a pre-teen and he received a classical education in the instrument. At the University of Miami, he discovered jazz. After graduation, he played with Tower of Power, and as a session or back-up musician for Joe Cocker, Huey Lewis & the News, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt and Aaron Neville. At the end of the 1990s, he developed the persona of Euge Grove and recorded a demo. A recoding contract with Warner Brothers followed and he has continued recording with other labels.

Twenty-something and with matinee idol good looks, Vincent Ingala has already been at the top of the Billboard Contemporary Jazz charts, garnering him four Billboard #1s and nine top 10 hits. He is a wizard instrumentally, playing everything from tenor sax to piano, drums, guitar, bass and lead vocals. He was handpicked to open for Dave Koz when he was 16 and has collaborated with or opened for Chris Botti, Jonathan Butler and Kim Waters. He is known for his consummate musicianship, fun-loving stage presence and energized and inspired performances.

Lindsey Webster, a sultry and soulful young singer and composer, has already scored two Billboard #1s on the Contemporary Jazz Chart, making her the first vocalist to garner that position since Sade. Webster holds her own in a largely male-dominated genre made up of artists often twice her age, and she has quickly become a favorite on the charts and international touring circuit." www.lyrictheatre.com. 772-286-7827.

My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish and I'm Home for the Holidays at the Lyric Theatre
7PM - 9PM. $50. "Steve Solomon spent a good chunk of his professional life as a physics teacher and high school administrator in Brooklyn. He took a chance and left the stability of a steady paycheck to follow his heart into comedy. The newly-minted comic found he was competing against comedians 25 years younger, and while he could hold his own, he couldn't make a living. Comic Pat Cooper heard his repertoire of some hundred voices, dialects and sound effects and told him to take his act to Florida.

It was a good move. Solomon came up with the name for a show, My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish, and I'm in Therapy, and then built an act around the title while perfecting it on a cruise ship. The show went on to an award-winning stint on Broadway. Now Solomon has trained several people to do the show and it is performed around the world. He followed that show with My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish and I'm Home for the Holidays, which takes family togetherness to a new level when everyone gets together for the holidays.

Solomon said that the play is successful around the world because families are the same around the world and that family is the best source for material. "You don't have to be Jewish or Italian," he said. "You just have to be able to leave a family dinner with heartburn and a headache. There are 32 people at the dinner and one bathroom and one plunger. When you grow up in a big family, as I did, you grow and change. You tolerate things as a kid because you didn't know any better. When you come back, one uncle has dementia and the other has terminal gas."

Lest you think Solomon's family members might take offence at his good-natured barbs, he said that they are among his biggest fans. "They love knowing they're in it and they love coming to see it," he said. "My Stupid Cousin Kenny comes, but he gets annoyed. Of course, he thinks that Hamburger Helper comes with somebody to help. I impersonate my Sister the Smoker so well that my family thinks it's her."

Also at the party are Uncle Willie, Stuttering Cousin Bob, Steve's new therapist, Cousin Sal and his parole officer and a variety of characters every one of us knows from our own families.

While the show is scripted, there is room for improvisation. "On any given night, there will be 10-20 percent off-script," he said. "If I get a good laugh, the stage manager writes it into the script. You can't ignore a cell phone. I ask for the phone and say, 'It's my mother.' If someone is late, I stop and say, 'Sit down, can I get you a watch?' I lean over and tell him, 'Here's what you missed.'" Solomon said that he can only see two or three rows off stage and it's the "grumpies" who are always looking at him. "In South Florida, you get a lot of grumpy old people," he said.

You've been given fair warning. If you're late, have a ringing cell phone, or are grumpy, you may well become part of the show. It won't bother Steve Solomon at all." www.lyrictheatre.com. 772-286-7827. Browse SupportStLucieCounty.com for more events! 59 SW Flagler Avenue, Stuart

Their love affair with each other and with Broadway has never altered and they have asked some of their talented friends to join them in a special show, Married to Broadway, which features the best of The Great White Way from the past to the present. There will be songs from Phantom of the Opera, Carousel, Guys & Dolls, and West Side Story, as well as surprises for the audience.

Ron Sharpe was the first actor to have played both male leads, Marius and Jean Valjean, in Les Miserables on Broadway. Other Broadway credits include original productions of The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Civil War, and in Disney's King David. He reprised his role of Jean Val jean for the 25th anniversary production of Les Mis when it returned to Broadway in 2014 and he was featured in the production of Sweeney Todd at Live at Lincoln Center with Emma Thompson.

Barbra Russell performed as Cosette on the national tour of Les Miserables. She has performed as Luisa in The Fantasticks and Laurie in Oklahoma and has appeared in The Little Shop of Horrors, Side by Side by Sondheim and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. She has performed in concert around the world and conceived, produced and performed on the CD Sweethearts, the music of Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. Both have performed at the White House for Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

The Sharpes are producers and directors and a recent high point was co-directing a production of Les Mis by the New Jersey Repertory Company. The romance and music continue." www.lyrictheatre.com. 772-286-7827. Browse SupportStLucieCounty.com for more events! 59 SW Flagler Avenue, Stuart

$50. "Take the seductiveness of the Argentinian tango and French burlesque. Add the oohs and aahs of European circus techniques. The result, Cirquesco, an unforgettable evening that explores the art of choreography while testing the limits of the human body. From beginning to end, Cirquesco is a breathtaking production featuring state-of-the-art lighting, costuming and choreography.

Cirquesco was developed by Kevin Black, a former dancer, who decided that being on the stage was not fulfilling enough for him. He enjoyed choreography, costume design and set design, as well. He worked for several years at Norwegian Cruise Lines, developing and producing shows for onboard entertainment. In 1992, he settled in Florida and began Kevin Black Productions to provide entertainment for everything from cruise lines to resorts and theaters. He has presented Dance D'Amour and Dance Your Pants Off to sell-out crowds at The Lyric. Recently, he has directed Spamalot, Tommy and The Rocky Horror Show at The Crest Theatre in Delray Beach. He has designed several Cirque-style shows, spurred in part by the success of Cirque du Soleil.

"Before Cirque du Soleil, the circus theme was thought to appeal only to younger audiences," he said. "It was all about fun and clowns and silliness in three rings. Cirque du Soleil made circus a form of art that would appeal to the intellectual side and brought it into the adult world."

For Cirquesco, Black has brought professionally-trained dancers and acrobats and added state-of-the-art lighting and costuming and an electrifying soundtrack for a titillating and jaw-dropping exploration of the human body in action. Black considers it "Cirque du Soleil meets Moulin Rouge." You'll consider it simply amazing." www.lyrictheatre.com. 772-286-7827.

Steve Trash Loves Garbage at the Lyric Theatre, 7PM - 9PM
$15. "The self-proclaimed garbologist and green magician does magic tricks using everyday things people have thrown away. His goal is to entertain with magic tricks and illusions while telling the story of how nature works and how we need to preserve and conserve it. This is an interactive one-hour show that is perfect for the whole family!

Trash grew up in Alabama and has a degree in theater from the University of North Alabama. He moved to New York and studied at the Stella Adler School of Acting. In a 2010 interview with Gazette.net, he explained how he fell into garbage. "I wanted to make a living in entertainment," he said. "I was an actor, but that didn't really fulfill what I wanted. I wanted to reach people with fun, comedic entertainment. I stumbled onto doing tricks with trash and it just grew into this big thing, being able to share ecological principles through really high-quality magic tricks and stage illusions."

Audience members may watch Trash saw Mother Nature in half, but not to worry. She will be put together by "reusing, reducing and recycling." "I'm always looking for a way to make the magic play into a story I tell about how Mother Nature works and how we can conserve resources. I always want to do very high-quality magic. Magic should never suffer from trying to tell the eco message."

Trash aims his show at the entire audience, but performing for children is his passion. "Probably the greatest thing on the whole planet is a kid laughing out loud. Because they are very pure about the things they laugh about. You can really get at their hearts in a meaningful way if you can make them laugh."

Trash walks the magic walk. He created the world's first eco-friendly green magic set that can be used by adults and kids. It is made up of renewable bamboo and rubber tree wood. In 2013, he and Kelvin Holly released an album called The Trash Tunes, and he is a creator of The Recycle Cycle, a mobile recycling edu-station, to help kids learn the importance of keeping the earth clean and litter free. He has been given the Environmental Educator of the Year award, and his Green Magic Set won an American Specialty Retailers Association Award in 2009. He was a featured guest on LeVar Burton's Reading Rainbow Magic Week and has appeared on CBS, ESPN and CNBC. He has appeared in theater, fairs and festivals around the world, spreading his message of going green and being kind.

"Be good. Be amazing. Don't be mean." Those are his watchwords. Come and watch and join the fun." www.lyrictheatre.com. 772-286-7827. Browse SupportStLucieCounty.com for more events! 59 SW Flagler Avenue, Stuart

Mutts Gone Nuts at The Lyric Theatre, 2PM - 4PM and 5PM - 7PM
$38. "If you go onstage with kids or animals, you may well find yourself overlooked. If the animals are the cutest rescue dogs on the planet, it's a given, but that doesn't bother Scott and Jane Houghton of Mutts Gone Nuts. They are happy to share the stage with their adorable friends for a high-energy, high-wire show that is perfect for the entire family. Kids, parents and grandparents will love the pooches and the adults they let share the stage. The show is billed a "Canine Cabaret" and that should tell you that you're going to get a little of everything. The Houghtons, who are known as the "disorderly duo," have been performing together as a comedy team since 1984 and are known for blending physical comedy and circus artistry. They traveled the world and spent several years at Lee Greenwood's theater in Tennessee and as the featured act for Greenwood in Las Vegas and Tennessee. The duo also spent seven years with Dolly Parton's production, Dixie Stampede. In 1996, they adopted their first rescue pooch and began fostering dogs in the off-season for a local rescue group. They brought Chico into their act in 2005 and by 2007, they'd reinvented themselves as Mutts Gone Nuts.

The Houghtons are very serious about keeping their shows funny, and they're also serious about the welfare of the dogs in their care. Their rescue dogs are trained using positive, reward-based methods like toys and praise. They look for what each dog likes to do and cultivates that talent. The dogs live indoors, have two acres of fenced area to run when they are at home and travel in large, padded, climate controlled kennels for safety when on tour. Chico, who is (probably) a Chihuahua and Pomeranian mix, is only 15 lbs., but he's the top dog. Feather, the group's first Greyhound, is a rescue dog who was saved after she couldn't run fast enough. She may not be a racer, but she has jaw-dropping jumping skills and has the unofficial world record for the highest jump by a dog. Pixel, also known as Wheels, is a Border collie mix. She can run and out-maneuver much bigger dogs and is Chico's understudy.

Charlie is a Jack Russell terrier who was rescued on his last day, He's agile and loves to climb, which makes him the perfect high-wire walking dog. Chuck Taylor is a Frisbee-playing border collie who was given up because he preferred to herd sticks instead of cows. Geronimo is a cattle dog mix who is the only dog in the world to jump into two spinning ropes at the same time. Rox Steady is a Heinz mix who looks just like Geronimo. Her specialties are agility and tricks. Paco, who was picked up as a stray in Wyoming, does everything from high jump to barrel. McNerdy's favorite toy is the Frisbee and he could play all day, dazzling the crowd with his athletic ability.

To even up the sides, the Houghtons have brought some two-legged creatures on board. Samantha Valle is one of the world's top trainers and a spokesperson for animal rescue. She and Geronimo hold the Guinness World's Record for a dog jumping rope Double Dutch. They have appeared with David Letterman and Steve Harvey. Jonathan Burns is a contortionist who became fascinated with magic as a child and learned that he could make a living contorting his body. He has appeared at colleges and festivals around the world. If you are lucky enough to have a kid in your life, you don't want to miss this show. If you don't have a kid, you might want to rent one. They'll have an awful lot of fun, and you'll laugh yourself silly, even at Scott's corny jokes. Try your doggone best to see this show. You'll be glad you did." 772-286-7827, www.lyrictheatre.com .
