Around Cape Ann: 'Rumors' rings down curtain this weekend

After a debut weekend filled with laughter, the Cape Ann Theatre Collaborative offers four more presentations of the Neil Simon comedy "Rumors" tonight through Sunday at Gloucester Stage Company's Gorton's Theater on East Main Street.

The performances top a busy weekend of arts and entertainment activity around Cape Ann, with tonight's "Rumors" performance serving as a benefit for the Lanes Cove Fish Shack restoration fund.

Shows run tonight, tomorrow and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.

The show is under the direction of Pat Maloney-Brown. For reservations: visit or call 978-325-3153, or tickets available at the door.

Paul Ciaramitaro solo show

The Rockport Art Association, meanwhile, is holding a solo show of works by artist member Paul Ciaramitaro, with a free public opening reception Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.

Ciaramitaro, a lifelong Cape Ann resident, is recognized for his bold drawings and oil paintings. He creates full spectrum of images from semi-abstract, to cubist, to traditional styles.

He is an artist member of both the Rockport and North Shore arts associations. A number of his works are part of Cape Ann Museum's permanent collection.

"A painting must speak," Ciaramitaro comments in his artist statement. "It has to grab you by the shirt collar and say, 'Hey! Look at me!'

"Design is primary, color is secondary," he said. "When both balance each other, you have performed magic. Be brave and bold and above all experiment. Don't fashion yourself after anyone — create your own way."

The art association is at 12 Main St. in Rockport. The show runs through April 12. For more information, visit or call 978-546-6604.
