A new space for the arts

Insider staff When we first heard about Hatbox Theatre, the idea of a performance space in a former mall store intrigued us. And when we learned how quickly things were going to take shape to be ready for opening night, which was slated for April Fools Day, we needed to know more. But instead of just describing what Hatbox Theatre was going to be, we wanted the full experience. And what better way than to take in opening night. When...

WinantMemorial-CI-082515

On Aug. 14, people who looked pretty important gathered in front of the N.H. State Library for the unveiling of a sign at the site of the future John Gilbert Winant Memorial, Winant was a decorated pilot during WWI, elected to the N.H.

SixtiesInvasion-CI-081815

Eagle Square took a trip back in time with the ultimate throwback Thursday last week to see a performance by Sixties Invasion, a show band that performs a wide variety of music from the 1960s. With sing-alongs and a “guest appearance” from the one and only Roy Orbison, the crowd returned to 2015 having seen an impressive tribute.

Quilts-CI-040715

Since this is the quilting issue and we spent most of last week talking to people about quilts, it was only right that we devote some space to some of the best ones we saw during our travels. Plus we’re big fans of things that keep us warm and wanted to share it with all of you. And trust us, this is only a fraction of what we saw. We could probably fill every page with pictures of quilts and still not get them all in.

Cannon-CI-033115

Turns out about three months is long enough for a gingerbread house to sit in a place of business, so we asked for suggestions on how to destroy Tim’s creation. The winner? A tiny cannon! And boy did the cannon do its job. We found pieces of gingerbread shrapnel a good 50 feet from the blast site. Wish you could have seen it happen?
