Next from Arís:
Our Annual BURNS NIGHT Celebration!
Friday, January 25, 7:30pm at Manuel's Tavern

“We’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne . . . ”

Come join Aris on January 25th as we commemorate the life and works of the great Scottish writer and poet, Robert Burns, on the occasion of his 260th birthday. Through music and poetry we’ll celebrate his love for Scotland, his musings on nature and romance, and of course his humor!

The event will feature the talents of Ryan LaMotte, Lindsay Mitchell, Judy Thomas, Winslow Thomas, and Caitlyn and Matthew Trautwein

So join us as we honor “the best laid plans of mice and men” which, we can assure you, will not “gang aft agley” on Friday, January 25th.

Tickets are $15 at the door, or GET TICKETS NOW!

For directions, go to Manuel's Tavern.

Evan Weisman, 1938-2018

Arís fondly remembers Evan Weisman, who passed away this month. Actor, doctor, colleague, and friend. Evan played the Canon in our production of "Philadelphia, Here I Come!" (2014), bringing love and compassion to the show, onstage and off. Evan's warmth, generosity, and humor were very much part of everything he touched, and every one who had the pleasure of working with him continues to carry a bit of that beautiful spark. When working with Arís, he wouldn't stop thanking us for having been asked to be a part of this group. The irony of it - the privilege was ours. Rest in peace, Evan.

Aris presents full productions and staged readings of contemporary and classical plays. We celebrate annual events such as Burns Night and Bloomsday. We participate in other events that feature the literature, poetry, and music of the British Isles. Aris is committed to breathing fresh life into timeless classics as well as introducing our audience to the work of new and emerging contemporary playwrights.
