KCC Free Lecture Series Presents: How Ida changed my life - The power of an alter-ego, December 4, 7:00PM

Award winning writer and performer Susan Poulin is best known as her alter-ego, Ida, often called the funniest woman in Maine. In this humorous and engaging talk, Susan will reveal the inspiration for Ida, and what has kept their relationship fresh after twenty-two years, six plays, two books, and nine years of weekly blogs. She will also examine the lessons she’s learned from Ida, and what having an alter-ego has taught her about writing, life, and the healing power of laughter. 

Selected by Portland Magazine as one of the “Ten Most Intriguing People in Maine,” award winning writer and performer Susan Poulin is the author of eleven plays, six of which feature her alter ego, Ida LeClair, “the funniest woman in Maine.” She writes the popular Maine humor blog and podcast, Just Ask Ida, and is the author of Finding Your Inner Moose: Ida LeClair’s Guide to Living the Good Life and The Sweet Life: Ida LeClair’s Guide to Love and Marriage published by Islandport Press. As well as creating and touring her own work, Susan travels the country as an actor and facilitator for PowerPlay (unh.edu/powerplay), a professional applied theatre company based at the University of New Hampshire. In May of 2019, during a joint session of the Maine State Legislature, Susan was inducted into the Franco-American Hall of Fame honoring of her body of work and her promotion of Franco-American cultural identity. She continues to be a leader in bringing a female voice to New England storytelling and humor. For more on Ida, check out her website, idaswebsite.com

Seacoast Repertory theatre presents: elf jr.
december 12 - 22

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
