Church on The Street Fundraising Campaign

     The Church on the Street is conducting its fundraising campaign commencing 1 November 2014 to 1 June 2015. The purpose of the campaign is to pay for the church and adjoining facitlites. The church and facilities have been owned for many years by an indididual owner and he has informed the Pastor and the Board of Directors he must settle his estate soon.The owner has been so gracious to our church and we look forward to owing the church with your help...
     As many of you may already know, The Church on the Street has a great history. In 1880, the "Lone Star" Baptist Church was started in Prescott. This was the First Baptist Church to be established in the Arizona Territory. In 1884, the church was moved from the high elevation site due to the long uphill climb to the church. Thus, the building was placed on log rollers and today sits on the corner of Cortez and Carleton Streets. We are using the same building that came down the hill! The Reverend James Taylor has been the pastor for the last twenty-four years. The bibical foundation of the church comes from the scripture found in Isaiah, Chapter 58. A plan is underway to have engraved bricks laid along a walkway with the names of contributors. Be a part of history and may God Bless You.

Smoki Museum Exhibit: "An Essential Relationship"

 
“An Essential Relationship:
Amateurs and Professionals in Central Arizona Archaeology”
Exhibit Opening:  December 6th, 1:00pm
 
 
 
From the 1920’s until today, groups of individuals have pursued archaeological activities in the Central Arizona region.  While professional archaeologists can bring a unique level of sophistication to these explorations of the past through the science-based work they perform in the field, in the lab and in the library; amateurs have often led the way in prehistoric research.  Although they often lack the formal education and training possessed by professionals, these amateurs frequently offer surprisingly sophisticated skills and remarkable respect for the past.  Plus, what they may lack in traditional credentials is often more than compensated for through innate interest, enthusiasm and, yes, the love they may bring to the work.
 
Through the information we present and the stories we tell, exhibit visitors will see that Central Arizona serves as a particularly good example of how amateur archaeologists working in their own or in conjunction with professionals have made, and can continue to make major contributions to knowledge and understanding of the past.  Publication available in Museum Gift Shop.  Exhibit runs through May 31, 2015.
 
 
General Admission:
Adults:  $7.00
Seniors:  $6.00
Students with ID:  $5.00
Children under 12 and Native People are free of Charge
 
 
Museum Hours: Weekdays 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Sundays 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Sons of the Pioneers

“Sons of the Pioneers”
Presented by: Lonely Street Productions
Friday, May 8th - 7:00pm
Advanced:  $32/$36/$45
Door: $30/$34/$45
For over 75 continuous years the Sons of the Pioneers have been “the premiere Western singing group of all time.” (as described by the Western Music Hall of Fame.)  Elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Cowboy Hall of Fame, Western Music Hall of Fame, Texas Swing Hall of Fame and designated a National Treasure by the Smithsonian Institution, the Pioneers have become as legendary as the American West they represent. Their signature songs Cool Water” and “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” were placed in the Grammy Hall of Fame.  Other songs, such as “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” have become part of the very fabric of the American West.
Founded by Roy Rogers and the gifted songwriters Bob Nolan and Tim Spencer, the group garnered national and international recognition through appearances in more than 90 films, radio shows, recording and television appearances. As each prior member retired there has always been a carefully selected replacement enabling the group to keep its identity continuous and unbroken.  The sound today is still the sound which inspired the foundation of numerous other Western singing groups that followed.

National Theatre Live – Man and Superman

Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler’s List, Oedipus at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Bernard Shaw's witty, provocative classic.

Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary.

Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his.

A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.

Satellite broadcast of the National Theatre's production in London.

PCA Stage Too        
219 N. Cortez St., Suite E            
Chicago, May 21, 1924. Nathan Leopold Jr., age 18, and Robert Loeb, age 19, killed 14 year old Bobby Franks and were quickly apprehended when Leopold’s glasses were found near the corpse. Clarence Darrow defended them, pleading eloquently against capital punishment. Why would wealthy young men murder an innocent boy? What demons lurked behind Leob’s flashing good looks? Behind Leopold’s saturnine intellect? This exquisite Off Broadway hit explores the complex relationship between these two who longed to create a private world of fevered intellect and romantic passion. The author suggests that, given twists of fate and character, Leopold or Loeb could be anyone who has loved too much, had a broken heart, wanted to prove everlasting devotion, or looked at a loved one and thought “I’d die for you ... I’d kill for you.” This is a love story set to themes of crime and punishment, the press, the times, humanism, Nietzsche’s philosophy and the end of the jazz age.

Visions from Cape Breton and Beyond

Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy have created a new show to bring their fans the next chapter in their musical and personal journey. For the first time on stage, they'll feature their children alongside dancers and singers from the traditions of their hometowns of Cape Breton and Lakefield, Ontario. The evening will highlight the unique talents, influences, and stories of the first family of traditional fiddlers through dancing, singing, and, of course, world-class music-making.

"To call Natalie MacMaster the most dynamic performer in Celtic music today is high praise, but it still doesn't get at just how remarkable a concert artist this Cape Breton Island fiddler has become." – The Boston Herald

They have collaborated with artists like Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers) on their recent EP, Run for Your Life, and opened for Rascal Flatts at the 2014 Country Explosion in Utah.

The Lives of the Men of the Az Frontier!

The Phippen Museum is pleased to present Dr. Barbara Marriott on Saturday June 6 at 1pm as she shares the stories of the pioneer men who first rode into the Arizona Territory.  A saga of incredible action with gun battles, deadly weather, outlaws, and evasive fortunes!  Some found success, some found poverty, and some found an early death. Hear the true-life stories of these Arizona characters including outlaw John Ringo, tough Pete Kitchen, Rough Rider Bucky O’Neill, and Henry Wickenburg, the man who found a rich mine but died a pauper.  Barbara Marriott has been everything from a fashion copywriter to a management consultant, from a newspaper editor to a university professor, her insatiable curiosity has taken her down many paths. Now her hunt for Western history has added another twist of excitement to her life.  Marriott uses her Ph.D. in cultural anthropology as a tool for understanding the Old West and its fascinating characters. After nine books about the Southwest’s pioneers and legends (with many of the books award winning), she is on the trail searching for the next bit of unknown and unique history. This program is present with the cooperation of the Arizona Humanities.

All Hat and No Cattle: The Language of the West

Every day we use words and phrases whose roots lie in the American West. Words like “brand,” “maverick,” and “railroaded,” along with phrases like “climb down off your high horse” and “passing the buck” all grew out of the culture and experiences of those who resided west of the Mississippi. These creative words and phrases are poetic, descriptive and often quite humorous, like the saying “He’s got a ten-dollar Stetson on a five-cent head.” Ride shotgun with Steve Renzi as he explores the meanings and historical origins of these Western words at the Phippen Museum on Saturday June 27 at 1pm.  Steve believes that every generation must learn about who and what came before them or else the lessons learned are lost. As a writer and photographer with a teacher’s certificate in secondary education, He is always searching for new ways of exploring our history. He has written and been published in over 200 magazine and newspaper articles and is currently a writing and photography teacher, as well as a basketball coach. This program is present with the cooperation of the Arizona Humanities.

“One of These Nights”
Presented by: TAD Management
Saturday, July 11th - 7:00pm
$22/$25
 
One of These Nights promise you exactly that....AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT!
  Join One of These Nights as they take you on their version of a hit filled show featuring the music of the  Eagles, one of the most successful rock acts of all time. Our show takes the audience on a journey thru
all the Eagles’ ‘sounds’, from tasteful country rock, complete with full harmonies, to hard rocking tunes
that highlight the Eagles’ extraordinary catalogue.  The show of course features the band’s greatest hits, including ‘Hotel California,’ ‘Desperado,’ Lyin'
Eyes,’ ‘Life In The Fast Lane,’ ‘Take It Easy,’ ‘Already Gone,’ ‘One Of These Nights’ and many others;
all presented in a highly entertaining production with uncanny accuracy. It was these and other EAGLES tracks that earned the band seven number-one singles, six Grammys, five American Music Awards and six number one albums.  John Waxman and JD Madrid have teamed up with fellow stellar musicians to create one of the best sounding Eagles tribute bands touring today. Recognized for their uncanny accuracy to the original, One of These Nights is a pure and simple tribute to the Eagles.
