SIST Presents: Richard III
Sep 22 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company Presents:

RICHARD III

By William Shakespeare

Richard III chronicles the cataclysmic end of one of history’s greatest villains. Richard is as charming as he is cunning. Being seduced by Richard’s shameless treachery is one of theatre-going’s most delicious guilty pleasures. Through scheming and seducing — and a few murders along the way — Richard secures the crown for himself…but can he hold it? Richard III is a fast-paced master class in political intrigue with a character that is as alluring as he is obnoxious.

Although set in a somewhat traditional, though somewhat fantastical setting in Fort Wadsworth’s epic Battery Weed, the play’s narcissistic tyrant should seem all-too possible and familiar.

September 14, 15, and 21, 22
3:00pm

FREE ADMISSION
Seating is limited and a ticket is required.

Free tickets can be obtained at the door before each performance (if still available),

Sunrise Tai Chi @ H.H. Biddle House (in Conference House Park)
Sep 23 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Tai Chi focuses the mind while training the body — meditation through movement. Once learned, it can be maintained easily as a healthy life-long practice, easily adapted to your abilities and/or limitations. Due to continuous movements, especially shifting body weight from one leg to another, Tai Chi delivers countless benefits, including increased strength, conditioning, balance, coordination, flexibility, stamina, range of motion, bone density, joint lubrication, mind/body connection; and more confidence, peace of mind thru-out the day, improved sleep at night. Note that this is the oldest original Chen-Style Tai Chi, taught by traditional instruction, where each student learns at their own pace and builds up their knowledge bit-by-bit.
