Night at the Museum V: More Voices from the Cemetery

Call for Cast Members: Woodman Museum’s “Night at the Museum” event returns in October

For its 5th annual re-enactment event, the Woodman Museum will present “More Voices from the Cemetery” on October
14-15, 2017 on the grounds of Dover’s picturesque and historic Pine Hill Cemetery.
Approximately 60 cast members are being sought to act, lead tours, or provide event assistance during this 2-day
production when dozens of famous (or infamous) Dover residents will rise from the dead at their gravesites to entertain
you with details from their most interesting lives! All acting roles are for adults, but no acting experience is required! We
are seeking individuals with an interest in bringing history to life, and in helping Dover’s oldest museum, now in its 101 st
year.
In two dozen scenes, laid out all over Pine Hill Cemetery, history will come to life in October during the 90-minute
escorted tours of this burial ground that dates from 1731. More than 40 noted, nefarious, or notorious Dover citizens
will come to life beside their headstones, regaling visitors with tales of mirth, woe, and amazement! Among the
residents lifting their voices in the cemetery will be sea captains, business leaders, soldiers, politicians, ministers, lost
lovers, and even a famous opera singer!
For those thinking about participating, there will be a Cast Orientation Session on Thursday, August 24 at 6:30pm at the
Museum’s Keefe House (15 Summer St.). You are invited to meet the production staff, ask questions, and talk with
others who’ve participated in previous “Night at the Museum” events. After the orientation, you can decide if you’d like
to sign on to the cast as a character, as a Tour Guide, or help out behind the scenes.
Tickets for “More Voices from the Cemetery” will go on sale in September at the Woodman Museum and on its website.
This is a family-friendly tour, suitable for all ages. Prices are $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. For additional
information and/or to volunteer with “More Voices from the Cemetery”, call the Woodman Museum at 603-742- 1038.

Day of Caring (United Way of the Greater Seacoast)

For 26 years, United Way of the Greater Seacoast has brought hundreds of volunteers together to participate in Day of Caring.  This annual, full day opportunity offers teams of volunteers from local companies and organizations the chance to roll up their sleeves and make a difference in the community.  Projects are available at nonprofits, schools, and libraries throughout the Seacoast region.

The Woodman needs your help! We need at least 20 volunteers for yard work, painting, carpentry, landscaping and demolition. And, of course, we will have food and beverages for the volunteers!

We hope you will join us this year on September 13th and help us increase these numbers and impact.

Thanks for your support!

The Port of Dover Exhibit

The Woodman Museum’s new gallery exhibit, “The Port of Dover,” is open to the public. Our exhibit highlights the prominence of our lovely city as a bustling trading port. Dover’s history is inextricably linked with the Cochecho River, upon which it was founded. Our show offers a glimpse into its spectacular past, from the humble gundalow captains to the massive schooners that docked at the landing. To tell the story, we have put together a collection of artifacts, maps, original fine art, and models!

Come visit! The Port of Dover exhibit will be open for the months of June and July. There is no admission fee.

The Art Talk is scheduled for June 14 at the Thom Hindle Gallery from 6-8pm.

Castaways Speaker Event with George Maglaras

Explore Dover’s link with the Atlantic and beyond! A short hop down the Cochecho and Piscataqua Rivers will land fishermen and trading vessels in Portsmouth Harbor. The Isles of Shoals have, for a hundreds of years, an excellent fishing ground for local fishermen. Dover itself was once a rival to Portsmouth and eastern seaboard trading cities. Around the turn of the century, great schooners would dock right at Dover Landing!

Join us at Castaways (31 Cocheco St, Dover, NH 03820) from 5pm – 7pm to hear colorful waterfront and nautical stories from Dover’s own George Maglaras, owner of George’s Marina.
