An Evening of Jazz & Tap with Ayan Imai-Hall & Friends

Kick it on down to Kittery for an exciting merger of jazz music and tap dancing. Dancer Ayan Imai-Hall has been honing his craft since childhood and started touring the country with professional dance companies when he was 17. You’ll be tantalized by his taps while you hear Mark Shilansky on keys, Andrew Emanuel on sax, Scott Kiefner on bass and Brodie Cavanaugh on drums playing red-hot jazz tunes that pair sublimely with Imai-Hall’s fabulous feet.

‘Clue’
7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. Through April 24. Russell Hall, University of Southern Maine, Gorham, $16, $12 seniors, $8 students. usm.maine.edu
Whether you played the board game as a kid or just love a good whodunnit, don’t miss the University of Southern Maine Department of Theatre’s take on “Clue,” adapted from the 1985 film version. A dinner party at Boddy Manor turns dark, yet quite entertaining, as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock and Mustard try to figure out who the murderer is. Twists and laughs are plentiful, and it will be a hilarious “dark and stormy” night in Gorham no matter when you go. Head to the show on April 20 or 21 for pay-what-you-can nights.
