Her artwork has been exhibited at the Scarab Club in Detroit, in EMU galleries, in the pop-up Downtown Rochester Gallery Art Stroll, and at the Paint Creek Center of the Arts. Her award-winning senior honors thesis, "Flower Symbolism as Female Sexual Metaphor" - which infused historic and cultural symbolism into a series of watercolor paintings of radiant, concealed, wilting, and injured roses - was featured on ARTV's "L'Art Erotique" television program in Quebec in 2016. Andrea grew up in Canton and has loved drawing with colored pencils on dark backgrounds for more than a decade - ever since taking Intro to Art, Drawing/Sketching, and AP Art at Salem High School.

Dr. Cecelia Monahan has a serious problem. As a therapist who runs a support group for single and divorced women, she must listen to a number of relationship problems from her unusual cadre of patients as well as dealing with the unsolicited advice of her live in mother on subjects ranging from dating to cooking recipes. The doctor however, is not above using some unorthodox methods of her own such as hiring out of work actors to role play with her patients. It is only when Cecelia meets the new substitute package delivery man that the doctor must learn to practice what she preaches! Rated PG-13. Biltmore Studio - General Seating.

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself, at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: ‘You’ll shoot your eye out!’ All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamp post; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is a theatrical holiday perennial!
