TriArts Sharon Playhouse just down the Road from Hilltop House B’nB

Hilltop House is going to give you a glimpse at what’s playing at TriArts, the summer stock (do they still call it that?) theatre across the border in Connecticut. Here’s what’s playing now, and coming up.

FYI Bok is the small stage, where rehearsals often happen, or smaller kids’ shows, readings, off-season events. TriArts has been working to extend and develop their season, and looks like Georgie gets them open a bit earlier than usual.¬† May I add: TriArts is a very buttoned up operation. Their main stage has a nice sized house–straight down to the proscenium–nice sight-lines, and the casting and staging are usually well done.

Ed Dixon wrote and stars in “Georgie” and you can find out more on TriArts Sharon’s website.

Music by Frederick Loewe
This is a new version: Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Play and Gabriel Pascal’s Motion Picture Pygmalion.

We’ll try to give you enough notice. We highly recommend TriArts Sharon; driving there takes 5-8 minutes over nice country roads.



Got a Small Space? Paint it with Charcoal Gray.

The best thing about owning a bed and breakfast is that I have this 3-D palette to play with. At the drop of a hat–or way more important things–I can redecorate.picture of bathroom with new charcoal paint, photos hung

Of course, one might think, How can I go wrong with a neutral gray? Well ask yourself, is it grey or grey? No, not the 50 shades of stuff…but battleship gray? dress grey? bluish grey? slate gray? Yes it is–a clean slate that will easily stand up to the scrutiny of returning guests. Whatever color grey, frankly it doesn’t matter, I just love the opportunity to show off my handiwork; makes for such a lovely background for a wall of assorted art too. Cheers! Gray is no longer a down-in-the-mouther!
