Arts Calendar: Theater
Winner of eight Tony Awards, Once is a truly original theatrical experience. Based on the hit movie and featuring an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage, Once tells the enchanting story of a Dublin street musician who is about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. A musical collaboration becomes much more as their songs and lives become intertwined. Hansard and Irglová’s Oscar-winning music will take audiences on a heartbreakingly romantic journey.

The Dorset Players will bring down the curtain on their 91st anniversary season with Oklahoma!, considered one of the seminal musicals in Broadway history. Performances will be at the Dorset Playhouse on May 17-18 and May 24-25 at 7:30 PM and on May 19 and 26 at 2 PM.
The first collaboration of legendary Lyricist Richard Rodgers and Librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, the show was a game-changer when it took Broadway by storm when it opened in 1943. Memorable songs such as “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” and “Oklahoma!, rather than just providing filler, advanced the story of a cowboy, Curly, who falls for a farm girl, Laurey, against the backdrop of prairie life in the Indian Territory, circa 1907.
Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.dorsetplayers.org, in person, or by calling (802) 867-5777. Oklahoma! is proudly sponsored by Above All Vermont, The Barn Restaurant, Errol L.

Peter Schumann, Artist and Director of the Bread & Puppet Theater "Post Apocalyptic Dawn of Possibilitarians": The Dawn is the new republic that brings light into a crumbling republic of waste and warfare. It is the celebration of the possible light that must confront the current day darkness. The Possibilitarians are the dwarfs of the giantism system, the misfits in the billionaire universe, the underneath-the-above kids who stand up against the end-of-the-world politics. Possibilitarians of the world unite!
