Aztec Two-Step Performs

WILLIMANTIC — The Bread Box Theater, 220 Valley St., is pleased to announce the return of folk rock legends and Willimantic favorites, Aztec Two-Step, on Sunday, March 4.

After almost 47 years Aztec Two-Step finds itself in a transitional period. Due to the recent passing of Neal's beloved wife Karen, he is feeling the need to take an indefinite period of time off from performing. With Neal's blessing and encouragement to carry on the legacy of Aztec Two-Step, as lead singer and songwriter, Rex will tour for the foreseeable future with longtime ATS bassist Fred Holman (McKendree Spring, Jerry Jeff Walker, Richie Havens ) and the addition of John Korba (Hall & Oates, Phoebe Snow, Rosanne Cash) on keyboards, guitar and backing vocals.

Showtime is 4 p.m. Tickets are $30 and available at the Willimantic Food Co-Op, 91 Valley St. All proceeds go directly to the Covenant Soup Kitchen and Emergency Food Pantry. For information, go to or call 860-429-4220.

Windham Theatre Guild

WILLIMANTIC — Windham Theatre Guild presents the Fractured Theatre Series first production, "Fat Pig," by Neil Labute. Fat Pig premiered off-Broadway in 2004. Hailed as a provocative comedy that makes you think, it received the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best New Comedy in 2005.

Deemed as the "edgy little cousin" of the Windham Theatre Guild, Fractured Theatre shows are those productions that mat not quite fit a main Stage season, but provide a new outlet for more risqué, contemporary pieces for audiences, young and old.

Under the direction of Jim York, Fat Pig will be performed by newcomers to the Burton Leavitt stage: Justin Smith, Elizabeth Reynolds, Aaron L. Schwartz and WTG familiar favorite Meg Clifton.

Performances are Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 4, at 2 p.m. at the Burton Leavitt Theatre, 779 Main St. Tickets are $19 for adults, $16 for students/seniors and $12 for children under $12. UConn/ECSU/QVCC students may attend for $14, with ID. For reservations, visit windhamtheatreguild.org or call 860-423-2245.

Funding For Cleanup Efforts

AREA — The Last Green Valley, Inc. is making funding available to nonprofits and municipalities and organizations that wish to organize a cleanup event. In the last six years, 7,789 volunteers have collected 248,516 pounds of trash from parks, rivers, and roadways throughout The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor, thanks to the funding.

Recipients will be reimbursed up to $500 for expenses such as publicity, cleanup supplies such as trash bags and work gloves and food and refreshments for volunteers. TLGV will also help publicize your event and work with you to recruit more volunteers.

To apply, submit a letter to TLGV, on your organization's letterhead, at least four weeks before the proposed event. Applications should include: Basic details about your cleanup – what, when, where, and who – plus your contact information, including a phone number, street address, and email address; what you hope to accomplish; a budget detailing how you will use TLGV funds; who will be picking up and disposing of the trash (TLGV cannot cover that cost); how you will involve youth – the future stewards of The Last Green Valley; and describe how you will publicize not just the event, but the results. For nonprofit organizations, submit a copy of your 501(c) letter from the IRS.

TLGV reserves the right to approve or deny funds based upon the likelihood of project success and the availability of funds. They will contact applicants within two weeks of your submission. If TLGV approves funding, applicants will need to sign a short agreement and must promise to acknowledge TLGV's funding in publicity materials.

To help compile accomplishments, you must also complete and return the TLGV "Trash Tracker" forms after the cleanup. For more information, email LyAnn Graff or call 860-774-3300. The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor is the last stretch of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington, D.C.
