Dec 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show @ Pittsburgh Marriott City Center | Pittsburgh | Pennsylvania | United States

The Dinner Detective is the largest, award-winning, interactive comedic murder mystery dinner show in the United States. We are now running public and private shows in cities across the country every week. Our immensely popular shows are set in the present day. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don’t even realize it until they die…the performers, that is! Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more people die. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime.

What is Krampusnacht?

The Feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated in parts of Europe on 6 December.On the preceding evening of December 5, Krampus Night or Krampusnacht, the Krampus appears on the streets. Sometimes accompanying St. Nicholas and sometimes on his own, Krampus visits homes and businesses.The Saint usually appears in the Eastern Rite vestments of a bishop, and he carries a golden ceremonial staff. Unlike North American versions of Santa Claus, in these celebrations Saint Nicholas concerns himself only with the good children, while Krampus is responsible for the bad. Nicholas dispenses gifts, while Krampus supplies coal and the ruten bundles.
In German-speaking Alpine folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure. According to traditional narratives around the figure, Krampus punishes children during the Christmas season who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts.

Amahl and the Night Visitors tells the story of an imaginative, disabled young boy and his hardworking singlemother struggling to get by. When Amahl opens the door to three mysterious strangers on their way to Bethlehem, all oftheir lives are changed forever! Filled with humor, generosity, and hope, this timeless story reminds us all of theprecious, unshakeable optimism of a child. Resonance Works is the only professional performing arts organization inPittsburgh to produce Menotti’s heartwarming holiday classic, which was the first opera written for television(premiering on NBC on Christmas Eve in 1951.)

Starring in the title role of Amahl is Liam McCarthy , Aspinwall native and 8th grader at Sacred Heart ElementarySchool. Most recently seen as Miles in Opera Columbus’s production of Turn of the Screw (2017), McCarthy, a 7-yearmember of the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus, has also appeared with the Pittsburgh Opera, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra,and Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra.

Stage director Craig Joseph , who most recently directed Resonance Works’ production of Side by Side by Sondheim ,returns to spearhead this new production. “I remember going to see a local production of Amahl and the Night Visitorsseveral times when I was a child,” Joseph recalls. “Now, as an adult, it strikes me that, in addition to the miracle of theChrist child’s birth, the story is also about the miracle

of a child’s imagination: how Amahl begins to dream about and actualize a better world in which he and his mother canlive. Over the course of the story, what he believes becomes reality –a second miraculous incarnation. It’s thistransformation I hope to capture in our upcoming production.”

The first half of this year’s program features instrumental soloists from the company’s flagship ensemble, theResonance Chamber Orchestra . Harpist Marissa Knaub Avon is featured in Debussy’s Dances Sacrée etProfane for harp and strings. Bassoonist Andrew Genemans , who just won a position with the Grand RapidsSymphony, will perform Vivaldi’s Bassoon Concerto in E minor.

This holidayseason, the company will partner with both the W omen’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh and theGreater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank . Volunteers will be on hand before and after each performance tocollect both non-perishable food items and other essential needs for these organizations. “We hope that when peoplecome to our Amahl this year, they will also take the opportunity to help our neighbors in need this holiday season,” saysArtistic and General Director Maria Sensi Sellner.

This production also launches a new collaboration with the voice department at Slippery Rock University and Dr.Christopher Scott. Students in SRU’s voice department will understudy the roles in Amahl , gaining invaluableprofessional experience, and will have the opportunity to star in their own performance with the Resonance ChamberOrchestra on December 16th at 7:30 pm at Slippery Rock United Methodist Church. The Slippery Rock ChamberSingers will serve as the chorus for all of the performances.

Writing Outside the Lines: Experimental Forms and Process in Creative Nonfiction @ Creative Nonfiction Foundation
Jan 11 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Writing Outside the Lines: Experimental Forms and Process in Creative Nonfiction @ Creative Nonfiction Foundation | Pittsburgh | Pennsylvania | United States

There are many ways to tell stories that are true.

In this lively five-workshop series, examples and writing prompts will help writers practice innovative ways of breaking through traditional essay structure and thinking about how form can complement content in creative nonfiction.

Activities and prompts include writing a short food memoir in the form of a recipe card, a flash nonfiction piece about a transformative moment that leaps in time, a six-word memoir, an encyclopedia entry, and a sensory map. Participants and peers will examine how the fine art of perhaps-ing, or the speculative, can broaden the reach of storytelling. Between sessions, writers will revise their work to share with the instructor and their peers at the next meeting, and for the final workshop, they will choose one piece to revise for possible publication. Writers will also learn more about magazines that publish experimental and traditional forms.

Activities and prompts include writing a short food memoir in the form of a recipe card, a flash nonfiction piece about a transformative moment that leaps in time, a six-word memoir, an encyclopedia entry, and a sensory map. Participants and peers will examine how the fine art of perhaps-ing, or the speculative, can broaden the reach of storytelling. Between sessions, writers will revise their work to share with the instructor and their peers at the next meeting, and for the final workshop, they will choose one piece to revise for possible publication. Writers will also learn more about magazines that publish experimental and traditional forms.
