In addition, pump demonstrations will be shown and mothers will also receive instruction on pumping strategies for the early weeks.

We kick off the season with the beloved annual Washington tradition, Free For All, bringing back STC favorite Ethan McSweeny with The Tempest. In McSweeny’s glittering production, Prospero’s magical island explodes with life, hosting sprites, goddesses and fools that hold court and delight all ages. Prospero, the deposed Duke of Milan and now a powerful magician, raises a great storm to wreck the vessel bearing his betrayers onto the shores of the mysterious island he has made his home. There, attended upon by his daughter, a magical sprite and a villainous prisoner, Prospero leads them through a mysterious dream on the course from vengeance to reconciliation. Trickery and magic, romance and revenge set the stage for Shakespeare’s crowning masterpiece.

The Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum will host the 13th annual Maynard Sundman lecture Thursday, Aug. 18, from noon to 1 p.m. in the museum’s Discovery Center. Admission is free, with no reservation required. “Parks, Postmarks and Postmasters” combines the real-life drama and human interest of the people, places, and events that created our national park system with a study of the post offices and postmasters that connect them to the outside world.

Speaker Paul Lee was born in West Virginia in 1944. After earning degrees from Wittenberg and James Madison universities, he became a high school biology teacher and held summer jobs in Rock Creek, Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains national parks. He eventually left teaching and became a full-time National Park Service (NPS) employee. As an interpretive planner, Paul developed dozens of visitor centers, exhibitions and media presentations at NPS sites in the U.S., American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands. He retired in 2000 and lives in Colorado, where he volunteers at the Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library in Denver.

The Smithsonian National Postal Museum’s Maynard Sundman Lecture Series was established in 2002 through a donation by his sons, David and Donald. The Sundman lectures feature talks by authors and expert philatelists on stamps and stamp collecting.

Address:
3901 Rhode Island Avenue
Brentwood, MD 20722

New work by Carol Barsha and Jackie Brown
Between the Real & the Imagined is a two-person exhibition that explores the interpretation of nature in imaginary and fantastical forms. It uses imagination, observation, and invention to transport us to a place where things we recognize as nature blur seamlessly into places we know aren’t real. Chevy Chase, MD-based artist Carol Barsha creates colorful paintings of garden scenes that are as enjoyable in their playful, painterly style as they are in their stylized depictions. Brunswick, ME-based Jackie Brown constructs sculptural biomorphic installations that evoke mutation, growth, and movement, and expansion with an ambiguity that hovers between playfulness and malignance.
