Essex High School Presents "BIG FISH"

Essex High School Presents "BIG FISH"
Description:

Essex High School’s annual Fall Musical returns November 15 - November 18th with “Big Fish”, 2013’s broadway hit based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton.

After 2018’s tremendous production of the weighty “Les Misérables”, Director Aly Perry has opted for another larger-than-life production but this one is full of whimsy and suspended belief. “Big Fish” tells the tale of Edward Bloom, a man who leads an extraordinary life—according to the stories he tells his son, Will. But Will, now getting married and expecting a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Along the way we meet witches, mermaids, giants and a whole circus of characters in this 2h 15m family-friendly production.

Featuring a cast of 43 talented student actors, and a crew of 25, this show will take audiences on a magical journey from fiction to fact and back again, exploring themes of family, life, death and forgiveness.

“Big Fish” plays at Essex High School on November 15th, 16th and 17th at 7pm and on November 18th at 2pm. Tickets are on sale in advance online by visiting bit.ly/EHSBigFish and remaining seats will be available at the door; $5 for students/seniors/children, $10 general admission. There is plenty of free onsite parking available. Concessions will be available by donation during intermission. Visit essexhstheater.org for more information.

Time: 11/15/18 7:00pm - 11/17/18 9:30pm

Charles Henry's Final Curtain

Charles Henry's Final Curtain Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Charles Henry’s Final Curtain is an original Vaudeville show tucked inside a new musical play that celebrates the life and artistry of Vermont’s itinerant painter, playwright, actor and theater artist Charles W. Henry.

In the early 20th century, Henry, accompanied by his wife and children, drove across Vermont in a horse and wagon, producing original Vaudeville shows with accompanying painted theater curtains in local theaters, granges and town halls. All members of his family appeared in the productions making them true family shows. Today, few people remember Vaudeville and even fewer know about Henry’s magnificent theater curtains that are now recognized as national historical treasures and are part of Vermont’s theater heritage. This original musical and Vaudeville show aims to introduce a new generation of audiences to this now-vanished form of entertainment, and in the course of the show audiences will learn about small-town life in pre-World War I Vermont and see on stage some of the finest examples of Charles Henry’s painted theater curtains.
