April 8-9: The Man Who Came to Dinner, Nashua, NH. The play is set in the small town of Mesalia, OH, in the weeks leading to Christmas. The exposition reveals that the famously outlandish radio wit Sheridan Whiteside of New York City was invited to dine at the house of rich factory owner Ernest W. Stanley and his family. However, before Whiteside enters the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the front door and injures his hip. He is attended by Dr. Bradley, the absent-minded town physician, and Miss Preen, his frantic nurse. While there he completely takes over the home, forcing the family to remain upstairs while he entertains a series of eccentrics and Hollywood types. In the meantime, his devoted secretary has become smitten with a local newspaper man and Whiteside devises a plan to stop the romance before she quits on him. Admission fee. Janice B.

April 12: By a Lady of New Hampshire: Women as Innovators in American Writing, Plymouth, NH. New Hampshire women have been innovators in American literature from the beginning. Tabitha Tenney of Exeter wrote on of the first satirical fictions to be published in America (1801). Newport’s Sara Josepha Hale pioneered writing in several genres and edited Godey’s Lady’s Book for 50 years. Harriet Wilson, who grew up in Milford, became the first African- American to publish a novel in the U.S. Celia Thaxter, a poet from the Isles of Shoals, was also a forerunner of today’s nature writers and ecologists. Barbara White, UNH, presents this program, which is co-hosted by the Plymouth Historical Society. 7 p.m. Pease Public Library. (603) 536-2626. April 12: Four Centuries of Fishing in NH: Yankee Character, Yankee Priorities, Salem, NH. Fishing history in New Hampshire runs the gamut of nets, spears, guns, clubs, weirs, seines, fish pots, and hooks. Overfishing, inadequate or unenforced fishing regulations, and dams ended once-enormous spawning runs of salmon, shad, and other sea-run fish up from the ocean. The Yankee tinkering and tampering instinct, coupled with confidence in new technologies and the rise of sport fishing, brought many new fish species to New Hampshire after the Civil War, often with unforeseen results. Short-term economic self-interest and environmental/economic compromises seem to have taken priority over long-term natural resource health, resulting in a tailspin of environmental degradation. Jack Noon shares the history of fishing that illustrates these complex changes. 7:30 p.m. Salem Historical Museum. (603) 893-8882. April 14: The Old Country Fiddler: Charles Ross Taggart, Claremont, NH. Taggart grew up in Topsham, VT, going on to perform in stage shows across the country for over 40 years, starting in 1895, including the famous Red Path Chautauqua circuit. A fiddler, piano player, humorist, singer, and ventriloquist, he made at least 25 recordings with the Victor, Edison, and Columbia companies and appeared in a talking moving picture four years before Al Jolson starred in The Jazz Singer. Adam Boyce portrays Taggart near the end of his career, c. 1936, sharing recollections on his life and career, with some live fiddling and humorous sketches interspersed in this living history program. 2:15 p.m. St. Joseph Church Parish Hall. (603) 542-5335. April 14: Your Hit Parade: 25 Years presenting America’s Top Popular Songs, Rochester, NH. The radio and television program Your Hit Parade chronicled American popular music from 1935 to 1959. Clavin Knickerbocker will outline the quarter-century during which the show served as a “tastemaker,” featuring songs inspired by the Great Depression and on to the advent of rock-and-roll. We’ll explore the show’s relationship with sponsor American Tobacco and Lucky Strike cigarettes and hear about the artists the show helped launch and promote. You will be treated to excerpts from original records of the songs that Your Hit Parade showcased on its weekly Saturday night show, from one-hit wonders to classic numbers still familiar today. 7 p.m. Rochester Historical Society. (603) 332-0348. April 15: In the Mood, the 1940s Big Band, Swing Dance Musical, Lowell, MA. Features a 13-piece big band orchestra and six singers/

April 20: Italian Gardens: Then and Now, Peterborough, NH. “The garden is a home’s most important room.” Cornish resident Charles A. Platt (1861-1933), architect, artist, and landscape designer, practiced what he preached. A jump ahead of Edith Wharton and Maxfield Parrish in admiration of the gardens, Platt photographed and applied Italian design principles for villas and gardens so that Americans could follow them. This illustrated program by James B. Atkinson focuses on Italian gardens as Platt photographed them in 1894. Re-photographed in a pilgrimage by Atkinson a century later, we’ll explore what these gardens look like today, from the same vantage point, and discuss the history of designed spaces. 2 p.m. Mariposa Museum. (603) 924-4555. April 20: Having a Fine Time in Manchester: Vintage Post Cards and Local History, Windham, NH. Post cards have stories to tell about the built landscape, disastrous events such as fires or floods, daily folk customs, and the identity of place. During the Golden age of the post card, before telephones, personal messages could contain anything from the mundane, “Having a fine time, wish you were here …” to more profound reflections on family life or colorful portraits of towns and cities from the perspective of newly landed immigrants. Vintage post cards of Manchester offer a lively, nostalgic adventure through a major industrial center, home to people from around the world. Robert Perreault presents this program, which is hosted by the Windham Historical Society. 7:30 p.m. Windham Museum. (603) 898-7433. April 18: Boston Marathon, Hopkinton to Boston, MA.
