Theatrical presentations claim spotlight in November cultural calendar

For journalists covering arts and entertainment, the emphasis in November’s public arts and entertainment events at Bates College is on stage. Two productions apiece are planned by the college’s theater and dance programs, and three by the student theatrical troupe, making the month rich for performance fans. Another highlight for your story planning is the fact that Frank Glazer, an artist in residence at Bates and a pianist of international stature, has two concerts on tap during November. In addition, the month holds one must-cover in literature at Bates, a reading by Camden’s own Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, Richard Russo (Empire Falls).
