In the new holiday comedy, HOLLY STAR, a young woman who barely makes a living as a puppeteer returns to Maine for the holiday only to get caught up in a mysterious treasure hunt involving her paintball-obsessed best friend, her tango-dancing grandmother and a childhood crush. Check out the trailer here

Directed by Saco resident Michael A. Nickles during one of the coldest winter’s on record, HOLLY STAR was shot entirely in the Saco-Biddeford area, using recognizable and beloved landmarks as locations. The film stars Katlyn Carlson (Broadway-bound musical Be More Chill), Brian Muller (The Deuce, The Good Wife), Teya Patt (Fear The Walking Dead, Weeds), along with a bevy of very talented local actors, crew and extras.

HOLLY STAR will be released in the United States, the UK and France in time for Christmas. It is rated PG (for language, some thematic elements and smoking.)

IMAGINE: The Beatles Solo Years

Friday, February 1, 2019  | 7:30 pm
Tickets $25
A HOB Winterfest Event to benefit BHS Music

On Friday, February 1 Biddeford native Joe Boucher brings his five piece band along with a classical string quartet back to the City Theater stage to present “IMAGINE – The Beatles Solo Years” to benefit the Biddeford High School Music Department.

In 2017, Joe presented “Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” to a sold out house at Winterfest for the first annual BHS fundraiser.  Joe (BHS Class of 1987) and his band have been performing Piano Men with symphony orchestras around the country since 2011 regularly playing to sold out theaters.

They returned for Winterfest 2018 presenting their follow up show “Classic Rock” which they like to describe as “The WBLM playlist performed by rock band and orchestra”. They again were welcomed by a sold out City Theater and were invited to play both Piano Men and Classic Rock at last summer’s La Kermesse Festival.

This year’s concert will again feature rock band and classical musicians and, as with the past two years, will involve BHS Student musicians from the Chorus and Jazz Band.  The concert features the solo songs of John, Paul, George and Ringo after the 1969 breakup of the Beatles.
