Just discovered a few more events to add to tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) roster:

Wit’s End Premier Party is the first of what will be a monthly event at Antik; this celebration of all things Jazz Age is sure to be a great addition to the vintage scene. Wear your best party attire and sip fancy cocktails in between dancing the Charleston and the Jitterbug. Grandpa Musselman & His Syncopators will play live jazz and Shien Lee from Dances of Vice will sing.

Leading up to the actual celebration of Purim, the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre will perform its “The Historye of Queen Esther, of King Ahasverus & of the Haughty Haman”until March 7 at The Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater of the West Side Y.

In this production of Queen Ester, downtown meets folk tradition. High and low, live performers and puppets of disparate sizes are blended for a startling comical and touching effect. The cast of puppets includes marionettes designed and constructed by Prague master carver Jakub Krejci, two marionettes composed from household and carpentry tools by Michelle Beshaw and Emily Wilson, and giant paper mache puppets made by CAMT’s Associate Director Theresa Linnihan.
