What happens when Rosina, the assistant of rich Doctor Bartolo (who is in love with her, and who she wants nothing to do with) goes on a ski vacation with him, and encounters a world-famous celebrity “Conte” who with the help of his friend, the wily concierge, Figaro, tries to woo her away from Bartolo? Hysterical games of cat and mouse, mistaken identities, and hijinks ensue, while snow falls on a Tuesday afternoon at Chalet Beaumarchais in Seville, Vermont!

BARN OPERA - 62 Country Club Rd., Brandon
When Julie, married mother of three, unexpectedly leaves her husband and moves in with her mother Cora, she’s shocked at what she finds in her childhood home. Insults, galoshes, and English muffins fly as the women fight for control of Cora’s life and Julie comes to grips with her own mid-life crisis. Playwright Marisa Smith, the creative mind behind 2016’s hit Mad Love, is back with a hilarious and deeply perceptive story of aging gracefully – or sometimes not so gracefully – and how we try to care for one another in the face of life’s challenges. Smith brings to bear her signature brand of humor and acuteness of language to leave us laughing and crying all at once. Northern Stage is proud to present another world premiere production nurtured through New Works Now.
