"A Party to Flaunt the Glorious Unnecessary"
    What does it take to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary? Sometimes grand efforts. Sometimes herculean lifting. Other times a mere tweak of the moment, a nearly imperceptible shift, a head-tilt perhaps, and suddenly everything’s changed.
    The Turners Falls Lost-and-Found Fashion Show is a party to flaunt the glorious unnecessary birthed from the detritus of the mundane, a time to wring the celebratory from the ash of trash. Saturday, September 24 at The Shea Theater in Turners Falls from 5-10pm.    Come meet the designers who transform laundry abandoned at Suzee’s Third Street Laundry into runway fashions. Featured designers include Rachel Teumim, Andrea Glampyre, Anne Harding, Vic Maillo, Richie Richardson, Gretel Schatz and many more. Expect fashion, dance from Craze Faze, and other obtuse performances that celebrate the ways in which we can all transform a garment, a moment, a perspective or an evening. Live music byDaniel Hales and the Frost Heaves and Rebel Base. Also beer and snacks!
After 3pm: Pick up on-line tickets at The Shea
5-6pm: Open House! Behind-the-scenes look before the show begins.
6:30-8pm: Part One - Fun for all ages!
8:30-10:00: Part Two - Ooo la la!
We are a volunteer-run community event, and we are trying to keep the tickets as cheap as possible – and to give some away for free – please pay what you can. All proceeds after paying for the venue and other expenses will go to participants of the show or to future shows.

The Turners Falls Lost-and-Found Fashion show is the latest incarnation of an evening of amazing, glamorous, and sometimes wacky designs and performances that began on 3rd Street in 2004. After ten years, the show took a hiatus to revamp, in part because the laundromat was too small to contain the madness – that is, to offer enough room for the whole community to celebrate. This year a group of volunteer producers have spent the last year working to bring the show to the Shea Theater and, through workshops and open meetings, offer opportunities for the local community to plan, sew, or just goof off with colorful socks.
