The Upper Falls News is an email newsletter about what's going on in our village.  The Upper Falls News is brought to you by the Upper Falls Area Council but it's intended to cover any and all news in the village. 

This is just a quickie, mini-version of the News

Ghosts on the Greenway - On Halloween night (Friday) there will be some spooky happenings on the Greenway.  Any time from 6:30 - 8 PM, head down to the Biltmore parking lot and turn right on the Greenway route. The path from the Biltmore to the Charles River will be lit and there might be a few surprises down there.  If you make it to the deck on the river, there'll be some candy waiting for you.

FREE Theater Tickets For You - Our new Upper Falls based Newton Nomadic Theater opened its critically acclaimed run of Brian Friel's "Faith Healer" here in Upper Falls at Carriage House Violins.  Since then it's been on the road (Lower Falls, Newton Centre, Auburndale, Jamaica Plain, Salem MA).  We will be bringing the production back home to Upper Falls for the closing night performance on Sunday Nov 16 at 7:30 PM at Dunn Gaherins Restaurant.

Thanks to the generosity of Dunn Gaherins and Better Life Food, all tickets for the closing nights show will be given away FREE to Upper Falls residents to celebrate the success of our new neighborhood's theater's first production.

There are only 40 tickets available and they will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis this Sunday, Nov 2 at exactly 5PM on the theater's web site http://NewtonNomadicTheater.org.  So get them while you can.

Capturing the View From High Street - One morning this week, these two painters turned up on High St across from the old Emerson School and began painting.  They were from Framingham and just thought they'd come down and paint the view from High St.  They were just beginning when I stopped by.  I'm just sorry I didn't get back later to see the completed paintings.

What People are Saying - Here's a few quotes about The Nomadic Theater's production of Faith Healer:

“Three luminous performances are at the heart of this elegant production. It was a pleasure to experience this powerful and strangely haunting play in an intimate setting right here in Newton. Theater at its best is cleanly staged, excellently acted and touches themes that have you thinking and talking about the experience days later. NNT’s inaugural production hits all those marks. If the concepts of sophisticated theater and Newton don’t naturally go together in your mind, then see this show and be moved by the talent and excellence that is right here in our community.” - Jennifer London

"Powerful performances, a great story, and an intimate setting -- they add up to a spellbinding evening of theater in Newton. We were captivated from start to finish as the three compelling characters shared their stories. Be warned, you may want to immediately see it again to try to unravel the layers at work here." - Jeremy Sacco

"The story unfolds slowly, layer by layer, and by the end the audience
is on the edge of their seats. Well-acted, well-directed, everybody in this region should go see it."
- Christine King

"Nomadic Theater of Newton is just getting off the ground, and it is already making an enormous contribution to the cultural life of this city. Go see The Faith Healer–it is a beautifully directed & acted piece–an evening in the theater that will linger in your mind long afterwards–at least it has for me!" - James Rutenbeck

"If you love theater that challenges your imagination, you must see Newton Nomadic Theater's version of "The Faith Healer"! Be prepared for powerful acting, great direction, and a script that weaves an intriguing story!! Don't miss it. - Bruce Schneider
