The Week of September 14th-18th, 2015

In the coming weeks MCTV is excited to be bringing you new and interesting programming about our area!

The MCTV team was hard at work this past Saturday the 12th at the Discovery Center in Turners Falls filming an event presenting the history of the Spiritualist Community of Lake Pleasant.  Memories and images were shared from the book Spirit and Spa: A Portrait of the Body, Mind and Soul of a 133-Year-Old Spiritualist Community written by Louise Shattuck and David James as well as discussion surrounding one of the oldest continually-existing spiritual centers in the United States.  Stay tuned for this program to join our online streaming and schedule line ups.

This Saturday the 19th MCTV will be documenting a plethora of events happening in our area. 

  • Montague Soapbox Derby and Mutton and Mead founder Mik Muller is championing the Traveling Rhubarb Circus this Saturday as their documentary videographer. Started in 2012, the TRC is comprised of area youth from ages 6 to 17 with an enthusiasm for performance, storytelling and magic. This year's performance, Timeless (September 18, 19 & 20 2015) is a tale about the secret lives of dolls who come to life at night. They grow tired of having to go to sleep when the clock chimes six, and decide to take matters into their own hands... by stopping time. For more information about tickets go to their website.
  • MCTV will be shooting "What Really Happened at the Fall" at Turners Falls High School between 1 and 4pm. Mapping the 1676 Battle of Great Falls/Wissatinnewag-Peskeompskut this event is spponsored by the Town of Montague and the National Park Service.
  • MCTV videographer Bret Leighton will be capturing a live and silent auction of artwork featuring all kinds of creatures on over 70 discarded paintings at LOOT found and made, between 4 and 7pm with a preview of the work starting at 11am.
