“Foxcatcher just floors you. It’s one of the year’s best.” – Rolling Stone
Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is struggling in obscurity and poverty in Wisconsin when he is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to his lavish estate to form a team and to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Schultz seizes the opportunity, eager to step out of the shadow of his revered older brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), a prominent wrestling coach and Gold Medal winner himself.
With his vast financial resources and state-of-the-art training facility at Foxcatcher Farm, du Pont appoints himself head coach of the team, eager to win the respect of his peers and the approval of his condemning mother (Vanessa Redgrave).
The dynamic between Schultz and du Pont deepens as Mark embraces his benefactor as a father figure. But du Pont’s mercurial personality and psychological gameplay begins to weigh heavily on Mark’s shaky self-esteem, undermining his abilities on the mat. When du Pont’s favoritism shifts to brother Dave – who possesses the authority and confidence both he and Mark lack – the trio is propelled towards a tragedy no one could have foreseen.
The evening will include light refreshments and discussion and readings by several community figures. There will be a cash bar, as well as a book sale and signing after the readings. The topic of discussion will be The Middle Age Bogeyman: Taking Career Risks for Happiness
So What are the Guys Doing? by David Figura is a thought-provoking read and the type of book that will spark conversation as readers reflect on a wide range of subjects from marriage and career, to sex and religion. Figura offers us the male perspective on some of life’s toughest questions.
In the 1960s, Cambridge University student and future physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) falls in love with fellow collegian Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones).

He and Jane defy terrible odds and break new ground in the fields of medicine and science, achieving more than either could hope to imagine.

An evening of original compositions from Perform 4 Purpose artists along with some Classic Rock Favorites!
Perform 4 Purpose is a not-for-profit organization comprised of three student-driven programs: fundraising events, after school student workshops, and summer camps.
Through the fundraising events program, Perform 4 Purpose organizes several events annually that feature local artistic performances. We seek to include events for those involved in all forms of artistic expression such as music, theater, and dance. At these events, students perform alongside seasoned veterans within their area of interest. Through the after school student workshops program, students are able to gain knowledge in specific artistic disciplines. Through the summer camp program, students are provided with the opportunity to attend arts-based summer camps. Perform 4 Purpose also provides scholarships to students who are interested in attending a student workshop, Perform 4 Purpose Summer Camp, or another approved arts-based summer camp.
