Ukrainian Easter egg demonstration scheduled
The Hub on Canal will hold an Ukrainian Easter egg demonstration from 2 to 5:30 p.m. March 2, at The Hub on Canal, 132 Canal Street, New Smyrna Beach.
Jo Swindell has been decorating eggs since 1989, the first few years hand-painting with acrylics. In 1994 she began studying pysanka, Ukrainian Easter eggs decorated using a wax-resist method, to create simple objects of great beauty. The pysanky process involves building the final egg design by applying multiple layers of hot wax and dyes and requires several days to complete. The finished eggs are protected with a light coat of lacquer and have been blown to eliminate any possibility of spoilage.
This demonstration is free to the public.
The Little Theatre will conduct auditions for "Good People" at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 3, and Monday, March 4, at 726 Third Ave., New Smyrna Beach.
This humor-laced drama takes place in a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo...where this month's paycheck covers last month's bills...and where Margie Walsh has just been fired from yet another job. From Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, "Good People" looks at the perilous costs of choosing to hold on to the past or leaving it behind.
Performances will be April 12 to 21. Copies of the script will be available for reading at the New Smyrna Beach Public Library.
