Hidden Hymns [Saturday, June 17]

Hidden Hymns is an evening of Modern Dance by Meagan Woods & Company set to live original music by Shayfer James – and it all goes down at the 407 Theater-County Prep HS (525 Montgomery Ave.) this Saturday, June 17th at 7pm.

Meagan wanted to create a night with dance at the forefront, a show to highlight professional dancers, feature students, and honor a true coming together of friends and dedicated collaborators, such as Shayfer, who she’s worked with throughout the years.

“I can feel something building, something really meaningful,” says Meagan of choreographing and rehearsing these six dances, with a collective cast of 21 dancers.

Tickets are $15/general; $6/students. Purchase online here. You can also pay at the door, but door tickets are cash only.

Meagan Woods & Company can use your support to continue bringing arts programs to the community. Think: costumes, lighting, sound, rehearsal space & venue rentals, professional musicians and dancers, and so much more that goes into making these shows possible. You can donate to the cause here, and your gift is tax deductible.

Stephen King at Jersey City’s Landmark Loew’s Theatre 6/7

WORD Bookstore and the historic Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre (54 Journal Square Plaza) are hosting Stephen King for the inaugural event of his END OF WATCH tour Tuesday, June 7th at 7:30PM.

Tickets are $32 each and you must buy a ticket online in advance to attend. Official ticketing guidelines:

  • Due to capacity limits, each person is allowed to purchase a maximum of 2 tickets. If you purchase more than 2 tickets on our website, your order will be adjusted down to 2 when we process it. Please be nice to the WORD employees who are processing these orders and purchase no more than 2 tickets per person!

  • All tickets are non-transferable. No exceptions. At the date of the event you will be required to show a valid ID to enter. If you purchased more than one ticket, your plus one must arrive and enter with you.

  • Purchasing a ticket guarantees entry to the event as well as a hardcover edition of END OF WATCH. As a special bonus, we’ve been told that a limited number of attendees will randomly receive signed copies, so we wish you luck!

  • Seating will be assigned. The first people who purchase tickets will be assigned front row seating and we will continue to fill the rows in the order that the tickets were purchased. While we will try our absolute best to accommodate groups of 2 next to each other, there is a possibility that you and your plus one will be seated in different rows (though likely close together, directly in front/behind each other).

There are no refunds. To learn more about End of Watch, click here.
