Tonight: Idylls Show and launch party!

Performances, music, refreshments 

...including a wine tasting (funny thing happened on the way to Virginia's ABC Banquet license: the standard temporary liquor's license wasn't available to us, but we were offered a "tasting license" - so this adds another element to the evening, for sampling of wines and idylls...  )

Enter the Mindscape of 
a Sorceress and a Saint, a Horse and a Captive Woman
A Mother feeling her estranged daughter's labor pains 
Antigone burying her brother's body
Palamedes (inventor of numbers, alphabets and lighthouses)
and Leda (after the swan)
and more 

Featuring Actors’ Center performers:  Margaret Anthony, Genna Davidson, Carol McCaffrey, Kimberly Mikec, Rachel Morrissey, Paul Morton, Harlie Sponaugle, and Sue Struve.

Musical Guest: Old Songs, with Mark Jickling, Chris Mason,  Rebby Sharp, and David Brumbaugh.  Songs from Hipponax.

The show will begin soon after the 7pm arrival time;  please arrive on time so that you won't miss any of the performances.

And for those of you taking public transportation: closest stop to the Athenaeum is the King Street Metro stop in Alexandria. Walk down King Street (1.1 mi) turning right onto S. Fairfax then Left onto N. Prince. You can also take a free dashbus that travels every 20 minutes from the King Street Metro Station towards the Potomac River waterfront from 11:30 am until 10 pm, and stops at the corner of King and Lee Streets.The Athenaeum is located one block south, at the corner of South Lee and Prince Streets.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
