The Oregon Trail play opens in NYC

The Oregon Trail, playwright Bekah Brunstetter‘s original and unauthorized stage production of the classic MECC game, opens next week at the Fault Line Theatre in New York City. The play runs January 13–February 12, 2017, and tickets range from $9 to $24.

This production was previously performed at the Portland Center Stage at The Armory in Oregon. Apple II user Kevin Savetz’s review is in the December 2016 issue of Juiced.GS, and photos of that production are below.

WOzFest $04 Announcement

Europlus writes:

From: http://apple2.europlus.zone/community/wozfest-iv-announcement/

To celebrate KansasFest 2016 (and commiserate with other non-attendees) I’m proud to announce WOzFest $04 will be held on Saturday 23 July, kicking off at around midday.

At 1400 AEST we’ll try and get a video hookup with any KansasFest insomniacs (it’ll be 2300 CDT 22 July there) and share the KFest vibe.

Potential projects include ESR testing of PSU capacitors (feel free to bring some along), software preservation, assessment of some complete Apple //e education systems Jeremy from Canberra has recently secured from his high school Maths teacher, disk drive maintenance/recovery, and anything else people bring with them or decide on the day!

The usual munchies and cider will be present, with an expected dinner of pizza.

I expect it will be more low-key than WOzFest /// – but as I discovered last time around, anything can happen in 3 short weeks!

Hope to see you there!
