The award-winning St. Johnsbury Academy Theatre presents an all-student production of "Amelie: the Musical", based on the charming movie starring Audrey Tatou.
Amélie is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy and mayhem. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she’ll have to risk everything and say what’s in her heart. Be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection, and sees possibility around every corner.

The Samara Piano Quartet joins together four established musicians who have dedicated their professional lives to chamber music. The quartet takes its name from the winged seeds produced by the abundant maple trees surrounding their rehearsal studio in Keene, New Hampshire.
Established in the summer of 2017, Samara’s first visit to Highland Center for the Arts promises to be a thrilling performance, featuring works of Mozart, Turina, and Brahms.
This program features a pre-concert talk, at 6:00 PM in the Performance Studio, “Chamber Music Inside Out: The Creative Process Involved in Performing Someone Else’s Work.”

Elizabeth Fram is a multi-disciplinary artist, relying heavily upon her drawing practice to inform her textiles. “I apply the formal principles of line, form, and color, in tandem with the textural qualities inherent in textiles to explore image and surface, separately and together, celebrating each for the qualities it contributes to elevate the other.” Elizabeth lives in Waterbury.

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!

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper on view in the Fried Family Gallery from April 27-June 14, 2019. A wine and cheese reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 4-5:30 pm, with remarks by the artist at 5 pm. All are welcome to attend.
Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch is an exhibition showcases the artist’s fascination with exploratory drawing as the basis for work that invokes a sense of touch. Using tape, fiber, fiberglass mesh, and hydrostone, she creates installations and stand-alone pieces that act both in collaboration and resistance to material. “All of my work is rooted in drawing,” Weisberg observes. It is her desire to establish sensory awareness of spatial relationships between the human body and material, one that is “dynamic, improvisational, and mutable.”
A native of Philadelphia, Debra Weisberg graduated from the Tyler School of Art and currently lives and works in the Boston area. Known both nationally and internationally for large installations and smaller works that explore drawing in physical terms, she has exhibited at the Paper Biennial in the Netherlands; the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art in New York; and in numerous venues in the Boston area, including the Art Complex Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, Danforth Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Gallery Kayafas, Lesley University, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.
