Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

Winter is a season of rest, darkness and quietude. It is the perfect time to tend to our spirit and nourish our creativity. Guided by Janine Grillo Marra, we will explore the potentiality that naturally exists at this time of year, as well as the greater potentiality that is always within us. In a warm, nurturing environment we will practice together:

  • simple, guided meditation
  • super fun and easy-to-follow Shake Your Soul® Dance (movement class focused on creativity, fun and great music)
  • gentle and relaxing movement
  • restful floor yoga
  • mini Reiki (energy healing) treatment

All are welcome - no prior experience necessary. Yoga equipment is available, but you are welcome to bring your own favorite items.
To maintain an intimate setting, space is limited for this retreat, so register soon.

About Love Letters: Through the time-honored tradition of letter writing, audiences meet Andy and Melissa and follow their love affair from second grade through college; as they grow apart and marry others, still maintaining a relationship across the miles. Spanning the years 1937 - 1984, this story will resonate with those who remember the Great Depression, WWII, the Cold War Years and the crazy '60's and '70's. Gurney’s performance piece is considered a rite of passage for most acting couples and was nominated in 1990 for a Pulitzer Prize in Drama. It opened on Broadway in October of 1989 with an opening night cast of Colleen Dewhurst and Jason Robards. In the play’s long history, many notables have performed the roles of Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner. The New York Times’ Mel Gussow calls the play “an evocative epistolary account” and Coral Andrews of Playwrights and Stage Actors goes on to say, “The most poignant element of Gurney’s piece is the story between the lines, the words Andy and Melissa cannot bring themselves to write.”

Love Letters is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Amy and Mark Cafazzo have lived in Hopkinton, MA, since 2010 with their twin sons. Amy Cafazzo has previously been seen at the HCA in Enter Stage Left Theater's production of Rumors (2016). This is Mark Cafazzo’s first performance at the HCA, where he has been a member of the board of directors since 2016. The Cafazzo’s have each performed in dozens of production at Boston-area theaters including Quannapowitt Players in Reading, Footlight Club in Jamaica Plain, Boston Center for the Arts, and Arlington Friends of the Drama. The couple met during a performance of A Christmas Carol at the Gloucester Stage in 2001.
