KRCB http://krcb.org/ Sun, 21 Sep 2014 18:12:03 GMT FeedCreator 1.8.0-dev (info@mypapit.net) KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/who-cares-about-kelsey kelsey 200 2Monday, September 22 at 9 pm. Kelsey Carroll has one goal—to graduate from high school—and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. Who Cares About Kelsey? is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive "problem student" to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age and play important roles in an education revolution that's about empowering—not overpowering—youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.

KRCB http://krcb.org/staff-picks/masterpiece-classic-the-mystery-of-edwin-drood drood 200 2Sunday, September 28 at 8 pm. By all appearances, respected choirmaster John Jasper (Matthew Rhys, Brothers & Sisters) should have a quiet life in the small village of Cloisterham. But the serenity is pierced by Jasper's opium-fueled dreams and surreal fantasies. At Jasper's despairing epicenter is his obsession with his nephew Edwin Drood's fiancé, Rosa Bud. When the handsome and cheerful Drood arrives for a visit with Rosa Bud, Jasper's previously hidden longings are slowly and unnervingly revealed. Simultaneously, orphan twins Neville and Helena Landless arrive from Ceylon to receive the charity of the community. But what could their connection to Cloisterham be and why would Jasper seem so shaken by their presence? And, when someone goes missing, is it all just a dark dream or are there very real sinister secrets yet buried in Cloisterham? From the Primetime Emmy Award™ winning producers of Little Dorrit, The Mystery of Edwin Drood also stars Freddie Fox, Julia McKenzie (Miss Marple) and Tamzin Merchant in a new adaptation of Charles Dickens's unfinished tale of passion and betrayal.
