About Brookline
map
Brookline Massachusetts is a wonderful and unique mixture of busy streets - upscale shops - village pubs - large estates - gracious apartment buildings and rolling countryside. It is home for legions of scientific and academic professionals who work at nearby medical centers in Boston.

Brookline, MA became incorporated as a town in 1705 when this "Muddy River" farmland of Boston was named for the brooks that formed its boundaries. It has kept its town meeting form of government to this present day.

Brookline offers its own working farm-complete with farm stand, the oldest country club in the nation, a town golf course, a magnificent park on a hillside overlooking Boston which includes an open air skating rink, a highly interesting transportation museum, and the home in which John F. Kennedy was born.

Brookline is home to major retail centers that are alive with pedestrian- oriented shopping areas that are populated with a variety of shops. Here you will find antique stores, book stores, fresh fruit and vegetable markets, delis, restaurants, and coffee shops. BrooklineMA.com offers information about a town that has both a city atmosphere and a feeling of being in the country, thus making it a jewel of a suburb!

Love's Labour's Lost
Our production of Love's Labour's Lost takes place in 1929 at the University of the Nine Worthies, a private, all-male prestigious college. Ferdinand, the Prince of Navarre, convinces four of his friends, Lord Berowne, Lord Longaville, Lord Dumain and Lord Hawthorne, as well as some of the university staff (such as gardener Costard) to take an oath restricting them from seeing women. The Princess of France arrives then with her following: Lady Rosaline, Lady Maria, Lady Katherine and Lady Anne, and their overseer, Boyet. The men immediately fall in love with them but have to fight their desire because of their vows. Luckily for them, the girl are, initially, uninterested. Over the following two days they try to ignore, and later court the ladies. The wooing atmosphere is increased by love both requited and not, between Costard and cafe worker Jaquenetta; Jaquenetta and visitng Spanish professor Don Armado, and Professors Holofernes and Madame Natasha. Will the men end up with the women? Will the women end up with the women? Come see the show to find out!

Six Thinking Hats

Six Thinking Hats® is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. And once learned the tools can be applied immediately!

You and your team members can learn how to separate thinking into six valuable functions and roles. Each thinking role is identified with a colored symbolic "thinking hat." By mentally wearing and switching "hats," you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation, or the meeting.

Using Six Thinking Hats®, you and your team will learn how to:
•look at problems, decisions, and opportunities systematically

•use Parallel Thinking™ as a group or team to generate more, better ideas and solutions

•make meetings much shorter and more productive

•reduce conflict among team members or meeting participants

•stimulate innovation by generating more and better ideas quickly

•create dynamic, results oriented meetings that make people want to participate

•go beyond the obvious to discover effective alternate solutions

•spot opportunities where others see only problems

•think clearly and objectively

•view problems from new and unusual angles

•make thorough evaluations

•see all sides of a situation

•keep egos and "turf protection" in check

•achieve significant and meaningful results
