Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

May 4th @ 6:30 pm

2014 Nebraska Chautauqua Presents:

 

Beginning just after the bloody Sioux victory over General Custer at Little Big Horn, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee intertwines the perspectives of three characters: Charles Eastman, né Ohiyesa, a young, Dartmouth-educated, Sioux doctor held up as living proof of the alleged success of assimilation; Sitting Bull, the proud Lakota chief who refuses to submit to U.S. government policies designed to strip his people of their identity, their dignity and their sacred land - the gold-laden Black Hills of the Dakotas; and Senator Henry Dawes, who was one of the architects of the government policy on Indian affairs. While Eastman and patrician schoolteacher Elaine Goodale work to improve life for the Indians on the reservation, Senator Dawes lobbies President Grant for more humane treatment, opposing the bellicose stance of General William Tecumseh Sherman. Hope rises for the Indians in the form of the prophet Wovoka and the Ghost Dance - a messianic movement that promises an end of their suffering under the white man. This hope is obliterated after the assassination of Sitting Bull and the massacre of hundreds of Indian men, women and children by the 7th Cavalry at Wounded Knee Creek on Dec. 29, 1890.

Rated: NR    Running time: 80min 

Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even spoken with the people who grow and raise the food we eat. FARMLAND takes an intimate look at the lives of several farmers and ranchers, all in their 20’s, and all responsible for running their own agriculture businesses.

Academy Award-winning director James Moll traveled across the country to capture a first-hand glimpse into this high-risk/high-reward job, along the way discovering the passion these farmers have for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

   

Church Basement Ladies A Mighty Fortress is our Basement

May 02

 THE CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES ARE BACK WITH AN ALL-NEW MUSICAL COMEDY, A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT.

The fourth installment of the Church Basement ladies series of Musical Comedies, A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT, will be presented Friday, May 2, at 2:00pm & 7:30pm at the Historic Midwest Theater in Downtown Scottsbluff.
 
The popular series began at the Plymouth Playhouse in Minneapolis with the first installment, CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES, in 2005. It’s sequel, A SECOND HELPING, THE CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES SEQUEL, and the Christmas Musical, AWAY IN THE BASEMENT, A CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES CHRISTMAS, have been seen in venues coast to coast to cheering, sell-out crowds.
 
In the latest installment, these “bulwarks never failing” are at it again. The year is 1960 and a reformation is underway. With a new crop of Confirmands, Beverly, the youngest of the bunch, dons her first pair of high heels for her confirmation ceremony. Mrs Snustad, the matriarch of the kitchen, wins top honors at the County Fair for her “Grand Champion” pickles. Mavis, the ablebodied farm wife, must find a way to deal with the new “Super Highway” which cuts through her farm. Karin, the real homemaker of the kitchen, finds new freedom behind the wheel of her husband’s pickup truck and must reconcile a new world of change for her daughter, Beverly. Pastor, who has always found strength and solace in the church basement, has found new love and announces his impending nuptials. The Church Basement Ladies are once again required to face change head-on. Against the changing tide, these pillars of the church stand strong in their faith and in their friendships with more crazy antics, more great new songs and more lessons reluctantly learned.
 
With all new music by composer Drew Jansen who wrote the music and lyrics for the past Church Basement Ladies installments and script by sketch comedy writer, Greta Grosch, who also penned the sequel and the Christmas version, A
MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT continues to be inspired by the writings of author/humorists, Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson including the best-seller, GROWING UP LUTHERAN.
 
Audiences from coast to coast have fallen in love with these residents of the church basement, and all agree that each new installment gets better and better. What’s more, you do not have to have seen past installments in order to know what’s going on. As the St. Paul Pioneer Press says; “The genius in the writing of Church Basement Ladies is that familiarity with previous incarnations is optional.”
 
A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR BASEMENT tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 5th at 10:00am
 
Ticket Prices:
$24.00 Members All Seats
$28.00 Non-Members All Seats

For over four decades, the Institute for Creation Research has equipped believers with evidence of the Bible's accuracy and authority through scientific research, educational programs, and media presentations, all conducted within a thoroughly biblical framework.

On Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 7 P.M., Frank Sherwin, ICR research associate, senior lecturer, and science writer will be speaking at the historic Midwest Theater in Scottsbluff, NE. on Science and Creation. The accuracy of Genesis is paramount to the validity of all Scripture. Using the very scientific evidence that scientists have all had at their disposal since the earth was formed, Frank Sherwin will demonstrate that Scripture is indeed true and accurate.
 
This informative and educational event is brought to the Nebraska Panhandle by the Federated Church of Mitchell and other interested churches. It is free to the public, but a free will offering will be received to offset expenses incurred by ICR and Frank Sherwin.
