Vermont’s award-winning professional theater returns to Judevine presenting a staged reading of favorite Vermont writer David Budbill’s wondrous and whacky “Two for Christmas.”

It’s like getting two shows in one! Act One travels back in time to 1479 England in “The Second Shepherds Play.” — Act Two then flashes forward 500 years later landing in Budbill’s mythical Judevine with Antoine, Doug, Arnie, and Tommy in “The Pulp Cutters’ Nativity.”

LNT is mounting this staged reading of Two For Christmas to shine a light on the legacy of one of its longest collaborators, the late David Budbill – who considered the company his “home” theater.

The performance runs approximately 2 hours with intermission.

Covid Safety Protocols: Masks are strongly encouraged. (LNT’s State of the Art Bio-Defense Air Purification “Synexis” System is also in service 24/7 keeping everyone as safe as possible.)

COST: $20 General/ $15 Students & Seniors / $10 Youth (under 12).
center reserved guarantee seats available for additional fee
$20 Live-Stream & On-Demand.
