Youth Program: Judy Moody and Stink at Pentangle Arts

Youth Program: Judy Moody and Stink at Pentangle Arts

Artspower’s live musical production is based on the book by the award-winning author, Megan McDonald. Dynamic sister and brother duo, Judy Moody and Stink take audiences on a hilarious adventure. As usual, Judy is in a mood. After seeing her classmate’s picture on the front page of the newspaper, Judy wants to be famous and sets off to find fame and happiness. All the while, Stink and his foul-smelling sneakers become a real distraction as he vies for the coveted Golden Clothespin Award. Judy Moody and Stink are the perfect pair for their imperfect capers that lead to fun, mystery, sibling rivalry, and, in the end, true friendship.

Water, Water, Everywhere…

Water, Water, Everywhere…

“Water, Water, Everywhere…” is set in a fictional small town Walloomsac, Vermont where a factory has been spewing Perfluorootaonic acid (PFOA) from exhaust stacks and then built up over several years in the groundwater and soil. Similar things happened in Bennington and nearby Hoosick Falls, New York. But playwright and Oldcastle’s Producing Artistic Director, Eric Peterson, cautions that the play is fiction, not a documentary.
“It certainly was inspired by what occurred locally,” Peterson said, but plot elements have been added to make it both a mystery and a play focusing on many people affected by the contaminated water.”
Much of the play revolves around the local newspaper which is facing a difficult financial situation and is in danger of closing. Two young reporters team up with a veteran editor to bring the story to their readers. Peterson, a former columnist for both the Bennington Banner and the Berkshire Eagle, has written often about Vermont themes in plays such as “Civil Union,” His new play had a successful reading at Writer’s Theatre in New Jersey early this year. “The reading was a great help in the development process,” according the Peterson. We had done a reading at Oldcastle in-house without an audience, then it was substantially rewritten. The Writer’s Theatre reading had an attentive audience and a lively Q and A followed. Then more rewriting. I hope to have one more reading with an audience before rehearsals begin.”
The cast of seven is scheduled to include Howe and another Oldcastle favorite, Christine Decker who received plaudits for her performance as Mary in last season’s “Long Day’s Journey into Night.” Peterson will direct.

A woman’s world is turned upside down when she discovers that a hacker has invaded her online life. The mysterious presence, however, doesn’t seem interested in her money or her data but something much more elusive. Jordan asks its audience to examine how much we give away online and what we risk in our new age of information and technology.

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

Frankenstein
by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. This performance features Benedict Cumberbatch as his creation, Creature.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Vermont Vaudeville presents: That's Impossible!

HARDWICK, VT – Top-quality, live entertainment, in a renovated historic theater, featuring local and international performers, accessible for all Vermonters? That’s impossible! And yet, that’s just what Vermont Vaudeville has been doing for the last decade. Their fall show, “That’s Impossible!”, brings internationally touring artists to the stage, as well as new material from the core cast of resident Vermonters. Their blend of comedy, music, and circus earned them the 2018 Seven Daysies Award for Best Comedy Troupe.

Illusionist Billy Kidd performs on stages all over the globe. She has been featured on numerous television shows including CW’s “Masters of Illusions”, Syfy’s “Wizard Wars with Penn & Teller”, and hosted Discovery Channels’ “Breaking Magic” series. Her never-before-seen illusions will make your brain hurt.
Both guest performers are making their Vermont debut at the majestic Hardwick Town House, a historic opera house in downtown Hardwick. This community-supported building has undergone extensive renovations and is one of the NEK’s most beautiful and exciting venues for live theater.

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

Lost Nation Theater closes its 2019 Season at Montpelier City Hall Arts Center with Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, Thursdays – Sundays October 3 – 20, 2019. Curtain time: 7:30pm Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays; 2pm Sundays

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice ranks among her very best works. Bold, surprising, boisterous, hilarious and timely, this rollicking modern stage adaptation by Kate Hamill explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life.

The outspoken Lizzy Bennet is determined to never marry, despite mounting pressure from, and the constrictions of, society. Follow the trials and travails of Lizzy, Darcy, and the wonderfully idiosyncratic Bennet clan!

Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, so full of life, or so fun as it does in this effervescent, riotous adaptation.

The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden

Main Street Arts presents the musical "The Secret Garden" at The Bellows Falls Opera House
October 25, 26, 27, 31 & November 1, 2

Dig into the magic of a little bit of earth.

The minute you declare a spot off-limits, a child will be determined to gain entry. For more than a century, readers have enjoyed the story of one such young snooper. Based on the children's literature classic written by Frances Hodgson Burnett in 1911, the show centers on young Mary Lennox, a sickly, unloved British orphan sent in the early 20th century to live with her cold and distant uncle on the Yorkshire moors. There she discovers a neglected garden and nurtures it back to life, creating a sustaining source of joy, beauty and family regeneration.

Jordan

Jordan

A woman’s world is turned upside down when she discovers that a hacker has invaded her online life. The mysterious presence, however, doesn’t seem interested in her money or her data but something much more elusive. Jordan asks its audience to examine how much we give away online and what we risk in our new age of information and technology. This hauntingly relevant world premiere comes to us from playwright Brenda Withers, Huntington Theater Playwriting Fellow and co-creator of the New York hit Matt & Ben.
