The UO’s University Theatre is trying something a bit different this time around by mounting a production of Virginia Woolf’s final novel, Between the Acts, and staging it in the style of Seattle’s seminal Book It Theater, where actors read directly from passages of the work. It’s a gutsy, exciting move: Much of Woolf’s genius resides in her incomparable ability to float freely among her characters’ fleeting thoughts and emotions, creating an exhilarating web of meaning and feeling. “Characters in this play not only are in dialogue with each other, but also narrating descriptions and internal thoughts directly to the audience,” director John Schmor says. “It’s intentionally spare staging, emphasizing the actors and Virginia Woolf’s wonderful way with words.” 

Between the Acts plays 8pm Thursday, Friday & Saturday, July 31 - Aug. 2, at UO’s Hope Theatre. $5 door. — Rick Levin

Abraham Lincoln’s legacy lives on 149 years after his death, and on Friday, you can see Stephen Spielberg’s interpretation of his life when the Springfield Museum sponsors a free viewing of the epic historical film Lincoln at the Richard E. Wildish Community Theater. Featuring a haunting performance from Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th president of the United States, Spielberg’s film is a brutally sincere look into some rather dark days of U.S. history.

In conjunction with the film, the Springfield Museum hosts Lincoln expert Richard Etulain giving his lecture, “Lessons from Lincoln: Is Political Bipartisanship Possible?” on Aug. 8. Etulain will be available for questions after the presentation.

The showing of Lincoln is 7pm Friday, Aug. 1, at the Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., Spfd. The lecture is 6:30pm Friday, Aug. 8, at the Springfield Museum, 590 Main St., Spfd. Both events are FREE. — Samuel Wendel

Grab your bicycles and helmets and make sure you’re ready to chow down — the 16th annual Blackberry bRamble is here (no, that’s not a typo). Hosted by local bicycle collective GEARs, the bRamble offers bicyclists of all ages and skill levels the chance to enjoy scenic bikes rides of various lengths — 100, 62, 40, 20 or 10 miles — while also enjoying quality food and drink at rest areas along the way.

“We get lots of praise for our food by riders saying our food is better then most other century [100 mile] rides around the state,” says Mel Huey, one of GEARs’ directors. At the end of a day of cycling through the sun-kissed expanse of the southern Willamette Valley, riders get to enjoy blackberry pie, ice cream and a free beer (for those of age). 

The Blackberry bRamble is Sunday, Aug. 3. All groups begin their ride at the Hilyard Community Center, 2580 Hilyard St. For more info, see eugenegears.org/bramble. $39 early reg. ends Thursday, July 31, late reg. is $49.  — Samuel Wendel

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
