We offer a delicious vegan meal for $14 at 6:30pm. Please RSVP to reelandmeal@newdealcafe.com if you are joining us for dinner. The free performance starts at 7pm.

Location: New Deal Cafe – 113 Centerway in historic Greenbelt, MD

19 is the dynamic and little-known story of Alice Paul, the suffragists and their fight to get women the right to vote — the 19th Amendment.

This special live production is performed by local award-winning theater, film and media company Through the 4th Wall. Original song, dance and spoken word bring to life the heroines and challenges of this historic effort. 19 highlights the work of playwrights Jennifer Schwed and Doug Bradshaw and the original music of Charlie Barnett.

Following the performance, the audience will have the opportunity to discuss the craft of this production with the playwrights and composer.

For the past 11 years, Reel and Meal and the New Deal Cafe have been mutually beneficial partners. Reel and Meal, 11 years ago, was instrumental in raising funds through its program, which were then used to pay the rent for the New Deal Cafe. Since 2007, the program has evolved as has the New Deal. Currently, volunteers cook and serve the vegan meal allowing the program to raise money to continue to support the New Deal.

Reel and Meal thanks the New Deal Cafe for 11 years of hosting its film program. Reel and Meal would also like to thank its loyal and always evolving audience and the Greenbelt community which has made Reel and Meal a longterm success. Additional thanks are owed to the Greenbelt News Review for their ongoing inclusion of our events in this weekly newspaper.

Thanks to all! We look forward to more years of community partnering, networking and highlighting issues impacting our society and planet, with all of its inhabitants.

On Sunday, January 24 at 2 p.m., Beech Tree Puppets bring their new show, Rainbow Crow Brings Daylight, to the New Deal Café. The show combines two American Indian creation stories from the Lenape and the Inuit tribes. Crow has been revered by many cultures throughout the ages. Follow Crow on his journey to the Sky Spirit, as he saves the animals and then travels to the Land of the Light. The show premiered in December 2015 at Greenbelt Elementary School as part of a two-year artists-in-residency, funded by the PTA, the GES Family Art Fund, and a grant from the Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council (PGAHC). This free performance at the New Deal Café is Local Beech Tree Puppets To Perform January 24 sponsored by the Friends of New Deal Café Arts with support from the City of Greenbelt. The show, which is suitable for ages 4 to 104, lasts about 45 minutes. For more information, go to http://newdealcafe.com or http://beechtreepuppets.com.
