The Wrathskellar is the new dark cabaret from The Boston Babydolls and the denizens of that dank tavern will be at  Mariposa Bakery tomorrow night — Friday, October 1 from 7pm to 9pm.

From October 1 through October 31, The Wrathskellar is holding a scavenger hunt throughout Central Square. Collect ephemera from The Wrathskellar universe, follow the clues into the darkness, possibly win a prize. The world of The Wrathskellar is a shadowy maze of riddles and half-truths. Unravel the mysteries and save yourself... some money on tickets.

Your first stop is Mariposa Bakery (424 Mass. Ave., Cambridge). You can stop there any time during the month to collect the first puzzle, but stop in on Friday night, October 1 from 7pm to 9pm and and sample some delicious food and drink along with members of our cast.

Once you've collected your first puzzle and followed it to the next stop, you'll be given another puzzle to solve... solve all the puzzles and you're given a key. Every key reaps a reward — a discount on admission to this remarkable Halloween experience — but some small number of keys will open The Chest at The Theater. What's inside The Chest? No one knows... but if your key unlocks the padlock, the contents are yours (whether you want them or not).

Good hunting... and Happy Halloween.

Insect pests of New England

On Wednesday, June 9th, the Somerville Garden Club will sponsor a short course by horticulturalist Debra Elson, on the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) and other pests. The meeting is 7-9pm, 167 Holland St., second floor. The public is invited; the space is accessible.

The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) has a well-deserved reputation for being an aggressive, voracious pest. A video, "Lurking in the Trees," about the ALB crisis in Worcester, MA, will be shown. Elson will address the importance of vigilance about this beetle, as well as steps for containing the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid, Winter Moth, Eastern Tent Caterpillar, and Gypsy Moth Caterpillar.

Elson is a horticulturalist with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). She attended Green School, a comprehensive certificate program offered by UMass Amherst, and has done extensive research on insect pests of New England Forests. She has worked in nurseries and as a designer, and belongs to the Lexington Field and Garden Club and the Beth Shalom Garden Club.

Somerville Garden Club meetings begin with announcements and a roundtable of garden questions, feature an educational program, and conclude with a raffle of garden items and plants. The meetings are at 167 Holland St., 2nd floor, 7-9pm and are free & open to the public.

The Boston Babydolls are holding auditions for our next show on Sunday, March 14 starting at 2:00 p.m. and Monday, March 15 starting at 7:00 p.m.

We are auditioning burlesque dancers, back-up dancers, and variety performers for "French Kiss", a show at The American Repertory Theater's OBERON, outside of Harvard Square (where The Donkey Show is currently playing). The show will take place in the end of April.

We expect a short, intense, rehearsal cycle beginning in late March/early April. During the month of April we will have 2-3 rehearsals each week, typically Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. Dancers who are cast in this show will also have the inside track on future and on-going shows

Auditions are at B.A.B.E., 119 Braintree St., Suite #208, Allston, MA 02134. Directions are on-line at http://www.119bsr.com/location/directions.php There is plenty of free, off-street parking and the building is about a 10 minute walk from the Harvard Avenue stop on the 'B' green line. Please arrive promptly. We expect the audition will last about two hours depending on how many participants we have.

There's more information you need if you intend to audition. Please drop us a note telling us you'll be at the auditions; don't just show up!

Please feel free to forward.

Any photographers want to see Sleep No More tonight? Ours had to bail; we're looking for a replacement. There's a 1940s style jazz bar as part of the installation and, after the event, we're going to be hanging out there in our finery. We want it recorded for posterity and the Am Rep marketing folks said they'd shoot the photos out to their press list, so it's great exposure for everyone involved.

You need to be able to be in Brookline Village at 7 p.m. and be able to stay until 11:30 p.m. or so.

It doesn't pay, but you do get a ticket to Sleep No More, which is totally sold out.

CALL SCRATCH (don't email or comment) 617-869-2000. Thanks!

Q. Are they really naked?
A. Yes.

Q. Are they really girls?
A. Yes.

Q. Are they really reading?
A. Yes.

You can tell NAKED GIRLS READING is coming to Oberon (Two Arrow St., Cambridge, MA) on Friday, January 15th because the temperature is going up by 20 degrees by then! Doors open at 10:30 p.m., but you want to get their early for the best seats! Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, but we do not guarantee availability at the door.  Boston loves NAKED GIRLS READING and The Boston Globe, The Phoenix, Boston Event Guide, Bostonist.com, even N.P.R. are all doing pieces on Naked Girls Reading in Boston.

Get you tickets at http://bit.ly/ngrtix before they're all gone!

About Michelle L'Amour's Naked Girls Reading
Naked Girls Reading was started in Chicago in March 2009 by international showgirl Michelle L’amour and producer Franky Vivid. At the very first event it was obvious to all in attendance that something big had just happened, something spiritual. Immediately, the press took hold and emails started coming in from cities all over the country from ladies interested in starting their own franchise. Now Boston joins Chicago, L.A., New York, Denver, and a whole host of other great cities as an official Chapter (yes, we said it) of Naked Girls Reading.

It's only a few short weeks until Somerville Open Studios throws open the doors of Somerville to artists and residents alike. Come out to meet your city's artists on Saturday and Sunday May 2 + 3 between noon and 6pm!
This is a once-a-year chance to see some of the amazing arts being produced in homes and studios all around the city, meet your neighbors, and tour Somerville. Every year, hundreds of artists register to share their art and lives with the public, and every year, thousands of visitors take advantage of this dazzling opportunity.
 
Somerville Open Studios is a non-profit organization run by the artists themselves, and in order to make this event happen every year, they rely on volunteers to make sure that things run smoothly while they're in their studios. Volunteers can offer anywhere from an hour to several days to help SOS run smoothly, either during SOS itself or before it starts.
 
Some of the most-needed volunteer positions are:
  • making sure that maps and flyers are distributed all over town (not just Somerville!);
  • working to ensure that the trolleys run smoothly; and
  • maintaining the physical signs for the studios and trolley stops; and
there are many other options, as well.
 
If you'd like to help or contribute, please contact volunteer@somervilleopenstudios.org for more information.

Lily Ann Rose was born in Cambridge, raised in burlesque, and banned in Boston. On Monday night, March 23, the City of Cambridge made up for it's more prudish neighbor across the river. Mayor Denise Williams sponsored a resolution naming Friday, April 10, 2009 (the opening day of The Great Boston Burlesque Exposition) as "Lily Ann Rose Day". The proclamation was passed unanimously by the City Council.

At fourteen, Lily Ann Rose followed her mother and three aunts into the world of Burlesque. She learned to twirl tassels from Sally Keith, envied Sally Rand's famous feathers, and emulated Ann Corio, Boston's most beloved stripper. Comic Totie Fields introduced her with 'body beautiful' jokes, and she worked with some of the most famous baggy pants comics of the day. She was befriended by mob bosses, champion boxers, politicians (including Jack Kennedy), and held captive by the Chicago Mafia. She paraded and stripped to the songs of boy tenors including Robert Goulet, was banned in Boston when she mistakenly bared her breasts on-stage under the watchful eyes of Boston's Watch and Ward Society, and was imprisoned by an overzealous State Trooper – all before she turned eighteen.

You can meet Lily Ann Rose and half a dozen other legendary burlesque performers at The Great Boston Burlesque Exposition, April 10-12, 2009. For tickets and more information, please visit www.Burlesque-Expo.com
