    Harvardwood Heads To... OBERON's Old School Game Show

    Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 08:00 PM · $20.00 USD
    OBERON in Cambridge, MA

    Break out the eggnog and your favorite ugly sweater: Old School Game Show is back for our Holiday Special. This isn’t your Auntie MiMi’s holiday feast—OSGS is staying on the naughty list with more game show antics to keep your holiday season bright! Whether you’re celebrating the holidays or you just like to laugh, play, and win fantastic prizes, OSGS is the perfect present for you and your friends!

    Old School Game Show is an interactive trivia experience like no other. Audience participants can get the chance to play our original pop culture games, competing to win fabulous prizes from local sponsors. Or we invite you to sit back and enjoy the spectacle of live music, special guests, dancers, and sketch comedy. You’ll feel like you’re in the audience of your favorite retro variety show. It’s all the fun of an afternoon spent rolling around in the rumpus room — without the rug burn.

    Please note that all game play takes place on OBERON’s stage, which is 30 inches high and only accessible via a set of stairs.

    OBERON is the second stage of the A.R.T., a destination for theater and nightlife on the fringe of Harvard Square.

    In addition to offering work from the A.R.T’s main season, OBERON is also a thriving incubator for emerging artists to imagine new projects that could only exist in this exciting club theater environment. Hundreds of artists and performance groups brought work to the space each year. OBERON regularly features local performers including aerialists, beat poets, food artists, tap dancers, gender-bending sketch troupes, comedians, hula-hooping burlesquers, and pop-and-lock human statues to name but a few.

    Harvardwood Heads To... "Harriet" Screening and Talkback Panel with Producer Debra Martin Chase (HLS '81 ) - Fundraiser

    Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 06:00 PM · $25.00 USD
    Regal LA Live in DTLA in Los Angeles, CA

    Posted on behalf of Nancy McCullough, HLS '92:

    To Our Harvard Southern California Community:

    I am excited to invite you to attend a very special "Harriet" screening on Tuesday, December 17, followed by a talkback panel featuring producer Debra Martin Chase (HLS '81), whose film career has been stellar and ground-breaking for many years.

    Event organizer Black Design Collective is a nonprofit that raises scholarships for black fashion & costume designers. It is founded by clients of mine, who are amazing, talented fashion designers working tirelessly to build industry opportunities for future designers.

    Please join us Tuesday Dec. 17 at 6 pm at the Regal LA Live in DTLA for this pre-holiday celebration of a film profiling Underground Railway "conductor" Harriet Tubman, an iconic figure in Black American history. 

    In addition to Debra, the follow-up panel will feature actress Vanessa Bell Calloway, who plays Harriet’s mother, and costume designer Paul Tazewell, who won a Tony Award for ‘Hamilton’ and an Emmy Award for ‘The Wiz Live!’, providing a behind-the-scenes retrospective on making this epic film.

    Hope to see as much of our community as possible for this exciting event -- cost is only $25, benefitting Black Design Collective's scholarship fund. Student rate is $15, so please spread the word to any interested students. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you, and a happy holiday season to everyone!

    Best regards, Nancy L. McCullough, Esq.,
