The New Old Time Chautauqua is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing laughter and inspiration to communities that need it most.

Following Chautauqua’s stop in the Bend, the troupe of 50 volunteer performers and educators will travel north to offer free performances and arts education in Madras and on the Warm Springs reservation, in addition to outreach performances at the Deer Ridge Correctional Facility, and the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institute.

The organization was founded in 1981 by the Flying Karamazov Brothers, Patch Adams, and Faith Petric. Inspired by the traveling Chautauquas of the early 20th century, Chautauqua aims to be a catalyst for strengthening communities and elevating lives through laughter, inspiration, and learning. For the past 36 years, the dedicated group of performers and educators have volunteered their summer months to bring high quality live entertainment and arts education to communities throughout the United States; visiting rural communities, Native American reservations, schools, prisons, youth correctional facilities, assisted living facilities, and hospitals.

The organization has brought joy and entertainment to communities throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Alaska and British Columbia, and post-Katrina New Orleans.

Proceeds from the performance at the Tower Theatre will help to offset costs of the New Old Time Chautauqua’s 2017 summer tour to rural communities in Central and Eastern Oregon.

Location: Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall Street

Tickets: $20 for adult, $14 for children, available at www.towertheatre.org

Just in from Alpha Centauri will be Godfrey Daniels, 8 feet high and with a red bulbous nose, a red bulbous ball, and a red bulbous heart just for you! We'll be joined by the legendary Artis the Spoonman, Joey Pipia's magic, the hooping mastery of Harmony Lyrics, Noodlini, and many other performers demonstrating acrobatic skills, comedic verve, and a certain je ne sais quoi...

These benefits help keep our all-volunteer, intergenerational troupe on the road. All proceeds from the benefit are going to support NOTC's Summer Tour and Projects.

The 2017 Summer Tour to Eastern Oregon will take place July 10 - August 3. Celebratory parades, workshops ranging from juggling and acrobatics to storytelling and history, and top-notch vaudeville extravaganzas will be presented in Central and Eastern Oregon. The tour will stop in Bend, Madras, Warm Springs, Culver, Enterprise, and Pendleton.  The tour organizer is Port Townsend’s own, Sophie Pipia.

This year the proceeds will also support NOTC's "Hands Across the Border Project”. The love for nature, strength, dignity, courage and determination of the Water Protectors and allies at Standing Rock inspire us. We stand in solidarity and friendship with the Greater Northwest Native Nations--sister tribes that have been divided by the international Canadian/US border. The project will be co-created and presented by Native and non-Native people.  The facilitators are Port Townsend’s Joanne Murayama and Paul Magid.

*

The NOTC is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization.  If what we do appeals to you, we’d love to receive your end-of-the-year tax-deductible contributions.  These funds support our mission of entertainment, education and laughter.  This summer we will support and extend a hand of friendship to small towns, communities and Native Nations in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Alberta, British Columbia.

From the turn of the century thru the 1930’s, thousands of Chautauqua’s brought culture, education and entertainment to rural towns and cities across America.  In 1924 there were over 10,000 Chautauqua productions that played to 40 million Americans. Teddy Roosevelt called Chautauqua, "The most American thing about America"”. However, radio, movies, television and automobiles made Chautauqua obsolete.  People could now listen, watch or travel to cultural events previously available only in urban areas, and the Chautauqua Movement lost popularity.

Today, the New Old Time Chautauqua is the only traveling Chautauqua in the USA.  Our first tour was in 1981.  We will celebrate our 36th anniversary in 2017.

Everyone Welcome!

Join the pre-party festivities (at 11:30 am) in celebration of the Co-op’s completed downtown improvement projects. We'll celebrate and then parade down Holly Street in grand fashion from the Downtown store parking lot to Maritime Heritage Park.

This year we are especially pleased to welcome The New Old Time Chautauqua—a perennial crowd favorite and America’s only traveling Chautauqua—back to the party.

Chautauquas are based on the idea that learning continues throughout life. The Chautauqua Movement began in 1874, bringing a mix of education and entertainment to communities throughout the nation. When a Chautauqua came to town, all normal activity stopped while citizens dedicated a week of their lives to learn, be entertained and join with their community. 

The Flying Karamazov Brothers will headline the variety show, along with The New Old Time Chautauqua! After the show, members from the troupe will host circus arts workshops.

Local up-and-coming talent in the Bellingham Youth Jazz Summer Band opens the party at high noon, and powerhouse old-school rock-and-roller Jasmine Green will close it down from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Deep Clowning

Find your freedom in silliness and serious fun!  Called by some "the smallest mask" and "the mask that reveals," the red nose of the clown connects us to the understanding of the heart.  We find ourselves transformed when we put on the nose, and reconnect to our essential selves. Discover yourself and the way the world looks with a nose!

Heart and Lung Health

Tom Anderson of the Cardiopulmonary Department at the Columbia County Health System will present on the health of the heart and the lungs using a pig lung as a visual aid!

 

How to Use Listening to End Oppression

In this workshop we will walk step-by-step through the basics of using deep listening to help move through a hurt, grief, or basic every day struggle; to access the inherent clarity, peace, and love we all need to be able to treat other people, and ourselves, in ways that help dismantle fear and hatred. We will engage in a discussion about oppression- what it is, how it functions, and how it affects us all everyday, And then learn some basic tools, specific theory and finally: practice!  Absolutely anyone is welcome.

 

Hula Hoop

Everyone gets a turn in this in this group hoop jam and skill-sharing workshop.  All ages and experience levels are encouraged.  A trained teacher will be available to guide you through a dizzying array of tricks or help you master the basics.  Don't be left out of the loop in the hooping revolution.

Loving Your Watershed

Think of the lymphatic system as the body’s watershed, a fluid-transport system conveying lymph filled with hormones, nutrients, lymphocytes, white blood cells, proteins and enzymes as well as chemicals, cancer cells, bacteria, viruses, toxins and heavy metals through the body to be recycled and eliminated from the body. Clogged lymph nodes result in weight gain, fat and toxin storage, cellulite, exhaustion, cancer, and weakens the body making it vulnerable to disease. This workshop is designed to help participants understand the importance of a healthy lymphatic system, the potent effects of lymphatic drainage massage, and how to use daily self-care methods and tools that encourage healthy lymphatic flow.

Medicinal Salves and Dreamcatchers

Qiqong

Together we’ll practice a gentle form of exercise that involves simple free-flowing movements that are evocative and fun!  Like painting a Chinese landscape with your whole body.

THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY BY PAUL MAGID

Did you know that there is a law based on a unanimous United States’ Supreme Court decision that governs the Federal government’s right of sovereignty over all of what it considers formally Native American territory? Legally it is called, “Johnson vs. McIntosh 1823” This workshop will explore how this law came into being, how it remains the judicial bedrock of land ownership in the United States, and how it continues to control every aspect of Native American life even to this day.

 

Life Behind Barbed Wire

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, ordering all persons of Japanese ancestry to be removed from the west coast, creating the mass removal and confinement of over 110,000 men, women and children, the majority of whom were American citizens. This story is about my mother, Michi Murayama’s experience in a Japanese Internment camp in Jerome, Arkansas during World War II. Her words describe what it was like to be an American citizen swept up by the nation's fear, panic and wartime hysteria. Mom was an "ordinary" person living in extraordinary times.  Perhaps it's this "ordinariness" that makes her story compelling and reveals the resilience of the human spirit. Photographs from our family albums and the National and Smithsonian archives and Michi’s award-winning Memory Quilt will illustrate her narrative.
