    Ole Plays Nursemaid at Heyde Center for the Arts

    Mon, May 6, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    With Lena having an unexpected bunionectomy, Lena's cousin Mildred has volunteered to head to the farm to take care of things while Lena is recovering at the hospital. Lena is looking forward to her hospital stay, especially since it means that she is free of caring for Ole for two whole weeks! Ole realizes that he will be a “bachelor” while Lena is away, so he is almost giddy at the thought of all that uninterrupted hunting, fishing and, of course, Muskrat Lodge time with his fellow Muskrats! But even the best laid plans can go awry. Instead of hunting and fishing, Ole finds himself playing nursemaid to cousin Mildred instead. Can Ole survive two weeks with Mildred? Will Lena recover and ever come to the rescue? See for yourself what happens in “Ole Plays Nursemaid.”

    Please note that this is a special, 45-minute performance of the play.

    Tickets: $10 adults, $9 seniors, $6 assisted living residents, Accompanying Caregivers Free

No calories. No carbs. This NYC-based quartet is just four mouths and four mics. Real voices and non-stop energy. In a world where seemingly everything is fake, Blue Jupiter is out of this world. Blue Jupiter was formed in 2001. What began as a way to make pizza money for hungry students at Berklee College of Music in Boston, quickly became a full-time professional career.
