Charlie Chaplin in The Circus SILENT FILM SERIES

Charlie Chaplin in The Circus SILENT FILM SERIES
Description:

Wrongfully accused of criminal acts, a tramp (Charlie Chaplin) unwittingly ducks into a big top, where his bumbling attempts to avoid pursuing police officers earn the laughter and applause of the circus-goers. Impressed, the ringmaster (Allan Garcia) decides to employ the tramp as an entertainer. In between getting trapped in a lion’s cage and partaking in clumsy high wire escapades, he falls for a beautiful show rider (Merna Kennedy), who unfortunately has eyes for a daring tightrope acrobat.
Tickets are $10, Students and Seniors $8.

Time: 2/3/19 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Spot On: Venus Rising

Spot On: Venus Rising
Description:

Playwright Marissa Smith is a master of examining tough topics through a lens of compassion, humanity, and humor. Venus Rising may have you laughing so hard you don’t notice that divorce, mother-daughter dynamics, end-of-life choices, and opioid addiction are all tackled while loving insults, english muffins, and popsicles fly through the air. On February 3, we invite you to join Marisa Smith, Venus Rising Director Jess Chayes, and special guest panelists Cameron Ford (Executive Director of Headrest) and Donna Soltura (Continuing Care Manager for the Palliative Care Service at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center) for a conversation about decision making for the best life possible. From dating to mediating pain to money, who gets a say in the decisions we make as we age?

Time: 2/3/19 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Northern Stage, White River Junction
