Performed poetry is even older than theater, and Robert González imagines and recreates what poetry was like delivered from a stage to an audience — just the pure language and people to listen to it. Town Players will welcome Robert González in a solo stage performance of great and beloved poems on Sunday, July 12, at 7:30 pm, at The Little Theatre, 18 Orchard Hill Road in Newtown.

My favorite watering hole, the fountain at The Pleasance on South Main Street, is out of commission for a bit. The main stem has rusted out after these many years, and work is underway to repair it. I’m feeling mighty thirsty these hot summer days (yes, summer officially started on Sunday!) so hopefully, it won’t be long before the fountain is bubbling over again.

Congratulations to the “Sandy Hook Fredericks Clan.” Sawyer Fredericks, nephew of Bonnie Fredericks, owner of Sandy Hook Hair Co, was named the new champion on NBC’s The Voice Tuesday night. Bonnie hosted a number of The Voice viewing parties this past season, in support of him, at the VFW. Sawyer spent his early years here in Newtown, in case you want to puff up with a little pride. I’m sure all of his local relatives and friends are already doing so!
