Plan to join us as Kimberton Hills Productions presents a new musical: Singing Crow - A tale from the Brandywine, 1738, May 7-9 in Rose Hall.
This year’s production is special, as it is an original musical written by Veronika Roemer who has directed previous Kimberton Hills productions including Heidi - The Musical and The Sound of Music.
The story takes the audience back to the early pioneer time in the Brandywine Valley. Two new settler families have arrived from England, looking for a new and better life. They have been told that all the native people, the Lenape, have left the valley. But one day 12-year-old Maggie meets a Lenape boy, named Singing Crow, while she is out in the forest picking berries.
Instead of writing new music, Ms. Roemer chose to find original music from that time period. As the story unfolds, we hear songs from the early 1700s, songs that settlers from the British isles would have brought with them as part of their cultural heritage, as well as Native American music.
Performances dates are:
Friday, May 7: 8 p.m.
Saturday, May 8: 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 9: 2 p.m.
All performances are located at Rose Hall, Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, 1601 Pughtown Road, Kimberton, PA 19442.

Big news -- we have a sponsor! The international story, branding, marketing, and strategy consultancy Benari has partnered with Conversation on Networking, the leader in speaking, writing, and consulting on networking…to be our first ever sponsors…or half sponsors we think. They will share the 1.35 minutes and each gets to name ½ the oardoor. (If you don’t know what this means, review the other announcements…too much to repeat.)
So far a bunch of people have made reservations, most of them have called Bernadette at 610-935-0300 x 12 to pay up…thank you very much, some who came last year have the nerve to be out of the country so sent regrets, and many of you haven’t responded and made a reservation yet.
To refresh your memory: Food Meister Extraordinaire Francis Trzeciak will prepare huge amounts of his famous oardoors to go with the wine chosen by Grape Stomper Magnificent Marnie Old. And not only that, Marnie will be signing her new best seller Wine Secrets…one per couple but the 2 or 3 coupleless attendees can each have one of their very own. And not only not only that, but each and every person will leave with a nice piece of jewelry from Bead for Life, the amazing program in Uganda that uses paper beads to lift women out of extreme poverty. Wow! All for $145 a person.
Since our Board President has said he will guarantee a full house, help him out. Come and enjoy this amazing opportunity to listen to no speeches, eat no rubber chicken, get no requests for money (of course if you just happen to want to leave a few bucks…). You get to just stand around while great food is brought right to your waiting hand to balance out the wine glass in the other hand, while engaging in amazingly interesting conversations with the exceptional people who will be there with you.
The Camphill Village Kimberton Hills Second Annual Wine & Dine Talkfest…Be There.

If you want to learn more about biodynamics, you may be interested in reading STELLA NATURA, the Kimberton Hills Biodynamic Agricultural Planting Guide and Calendar. In print since 1978, the calendar is edited by Sherry Wildfeuer and published by Camphill Village Kimberton Hills. It can be ordered online at www.stellanatura.com or via phone at 610-469-9686. Locally it is available at Kimberton Whole Foods and at the Camphill Kimberton Craft Shop.
This Calendar has many aspects: a basic introduction to astronomy, a simple ephemeris, a planting guide, a star map, aid for following the movement of the planets in the night sky, and articles by ten different authors. All of these attempt to provide a true picture of the world outside us and ideas to assist in developing a healthy relation to that world.
Four dollars from each calendar sold goes directly to support the work of Camphill Kimberton.
