Events

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers and theatre groups. We look forward to introducing more area talent through future performances and concerts. Who knows? Perhaps our next headliner will be you!

In the next 90 days…

Leaves by John Gurbacs

“Leaves” by John Gurbacs

In my paintings, I am interested in showing the similarity and contrast between natural and man-made forms. I look for connections and relationships between forms and scenes. By realizing these concerns, recognition occurs both visual a physiological. This helps define for me a fractal like oneness as is found in Buddhist mandala paintings which is a source of inspiration for me. This focus has allowed me to devolve imagery that reflects on a range of issues from social and environmental concerns to mediations on the patterns and actions of nature. By showing a shifting of scenes in my work, events and forms merge while at the same time retain their own individual identity. The interactions  between  the scenes and images help define new relationships and meaning.

NUNSENSE
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm

nunsense_bw - by Peter GergelyA Musical Comedy by Dan Goggin

Presented by MAS Community Theatre

Directed by Aaron Washington

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns,tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. (Visit the official Nunsense website at www.nunsense.com. Logo art by Peter Gergely.)
