The story of displacement is a universal human story. Whether displaced through forces beyond our control, through choice, or even through the acceleration of cultural and technological evolution around us, all humans are marked by adaptation and re-orientation. Understanding this helps us understanding ourselves.

In 2019, after working for years with military veterans and their stories, The Telling Project officially launched this new initiative, “The Same Moon,” creating performances in which immigrant and refugee populations had the opportunity to tell their stories to their communities. Whether generations past, or in their own lifetimes, every American citizen bears the legacy of displacement – an experience that has impacted, and unites, us all.

During the late summer and early fall KCP Presents will work with the nationally acclaimed Telling Project to meet with Vermonters who have power experiences of migration to share. Through a series of dialogues, we’ll create a documentary theater script. Then we’ll rehearse the performance to present this evening-length show.

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

The Valley Players will present Out of Sight, Out of Murder by Fred Carmichael, January 17-19, 24-26, and Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Shows on Fridays and Saturdays are at 7 pm, and Sundays at 4 pm. The Valley Players Theater is located at 4254 Main Street in Waitsfield.
Out of Sight, Out of Murder was the first play to receive the Valley Players' Vermont Playwright Award in 1983. In the play, author Peter Knight (Jesse Putnam, Warren) is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion in Vermont where another author was murdered years before. A weird electrical storm effects a cosmic snafu and his characters come to life. There's the lovely ingenue (Aimee Clement, Waitsfield), the trusty butler (Brent Adams, Warren), a feisty character woman (Ruth Ann Pattee, Fayston), a dauntless hero (Louis Bronson, Warren), a fascinating "other woman” (Rachel Natvig, Northfield), the always pregnant serving girl (Marci Robinson, Warren), and the wily lawyer (Sal Spinosa, Waitsfield) waiting for midnight to read the will. Peter loses control of his characters and there is a murder; the intended victim is Peter. Other murders follow and the culprit is among characters who, having also worked for other authors, know a great deal about the subject. Charlotte Robinson, Warren, is also in the cast. The play is directed by Doug Bergstein, Warren, and stage managed by Mikki Nucci, Waitsfield. Jasper Mayone, Waitsfield, is the light operator.
Tickets are on sale now and are available by going to valleyplayers.com, or by calling 802-583-1674.

No Strings Marionette Company's "Jack and the Beanstalk"

No Strings Marionette Company's "Jack and the Beanstalk"

The action brings Jack from his humble cottage to the magnificent castle high above in the clouds. A sense of adventure and optimism and three magic beans catapult Jack high into the sky where his destiny awaits. With a nod to an ancient telling of the tale we discover if Jack, by taking gold and geese from the giant's castle, is a thief or if he is simply reclaiming his family's heritage. You'll thrill to the unexpected twists in this exciting production, which is tremendously suitable for people of all ages.

The afternoon begins with an interactive sing along where kids get to be part of the show and following Jack's adventure, No Strings' Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson host an intimate question and answer session where everyone gets a closer look at the puppeteers trade.

Engage your senses inside the enchanting world of marionettes. No Strings' traveling stage transforms any space into an intimate theater, where the seamless blend of movement, music and masterful manipulation captivates young and old alike. With puppeteers in full view, the audience sees how the puppets are brought to life. These Vermont artisans lovingly hand craft the marionettes, props and scenery, whether for an original tale or an adaptation of a classic. Once the mind believes there are no strings...this realm becomes real...and the Adventure begins!

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

The Valley Players will present Out of Sight, Out of Murder by Fred Carmichael, January 17-19, 24-26, and Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Shows on Fridays and Saturdays are at 7 pm, and Sundays at 4 pm. The Valley Players Theater is located at 4254 Main Street in Waitsfield.
Out of Sight, Out of Murder was the first play to receive the Valley Players' Vermont Playwright Award in 1983. In the play, author Peter Knight (Jesse Putnam, Warren) is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion in Vermont where another author was murdered years before. A weird electrical storm effects a cosmic snafu and his characters come to life. There's the lovely ingenue (Aimee Clement, Waitsfield), the trusty butler (Brent Adams, Warren), a feisty character woman (Ruth Ann Pattee, Fayston), a dauntless hero (Louis Bronson, Warren), a fascinating "other woman” (Rachel Natvig, Northfield), the always pregnant serving girl (Marci Robinson, Warren), and the wily lawyer (Sal Spinosa, Waitsfield) waiting for midnight to read the will. Peter loses control of his characters and there is a murder; the intended victim is Peter. Other murders follow and the culprit is among characters who, having also worked for other authors, know a great deal about the subject. Charlotte Robinson, Warren, is also in the cast. The play is directed by Doug Bergstein, Warren, and stage managed by Mikki Nucci, Waitsfield. Jasper Mayone, Waitsfield, is the light operator.
Tickets are on sale now and are available by going to valleyplayers.com, or by calling 802-583-1674.

Bread and Puppet Theatre -The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 1 at TW Wood Gallery

Bread and Puppet Theatre -The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 1 at TW Wood Gallery

The TW Wood gallery is pleased to present the work of Peter Schumann of Bread and Puppet Theater. This important show will be exhibited in both the Hallway and the Nuquist Gallery. The new exhibit features hundreds of new works, big and small, by Peter Schumann and his Bread and Puppet Theater. The exhibit will run from January 25th to February 20th, 2020. All shows are free and open to the public.

The Bread and Puppet Theater is a politically active puppet theater, founded by Peter Schumann in New York City in 1963 and based in Glover, Vermont since 1974.

The name Bread and Puppet is derived from the theater’s practice of sharing its sourdough rye with the audience, and from its central principle that art is as basic as bread. The Bread and Puppet Theater participates locally in parades and is active at many statehouse marches in Montpelier.

Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet’s director, was born in 1934 in Silesia. Schumann was a sculptor and dancer in Germany before moving to the United States in 1961. In 1963 he founded Bread and Puppet Theater and in 1970 moved to Vermont, eventually settling in the Northeast Kingdom in Glover where the company still performs outdoor circuses and pageants all summer long.
