Beth has spent a full year as lead artist in Jumblies’ East Scarborough residency, and her presentation will give you a chance to find out about this project and see where it takes place, as well as hearing about what it’s like to be an intern in the world of community-engaged arts. Don’t be intimidated by the time or location. Cedar Ridge is a warm and beautiful place: if you’ve never been there, you’ll be amazed. We’ll feed and entertain you, and get you safely to and from the subway. If you drive, there is free parking, and we can send you a map.

Other than completing a year-long Metalf Foundation performing arts internship with Jumblies Theatre, Beth Helmers’ work includes co-facilitating the Creators’ Unit with the Paprika Festival, teaching in the drama school at LKTYP, writing her play Uglyful,  directing Tottering Biped’s premiere production, Thom Pain, in Burlington, and directing a section of  We Live Here, at Arts4All. Past projects include directing Ablaze and acting in HONK, If You Can Hear Me!
