Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living Dead

This Halloween weekend the dead will rise at Northern Vermont University-Lyndon. October 31-November 3 NVU-Lyndon’s Twilight Player present George A. Romero’s zombie classic with a new script re-imagined for the stage, creating a full immersive theater experience.
A routine visit to their father’s gravesite, a pair of siblings find themselves pursued by savage people bent on tearing them apart. They seek refuge in an old rural farmhouse and are joined by several other people also being pursued by the ravenous strangers. As the night unfolds it becomes clear that the people outside are no longer living, but are the living dead.

George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. This stage production strips away most set and prop conventions and features an enhanced sound design, performed by three student Foley artists creating a unique theater experience.
Show dates are October 31-November 2 at 7:30 p.m. and November 3 at 2 p.m. at the Alexander Twilight Theater at NVU-Lyndon. Running time is roughly one hour and fifteen minutes. Opening night, audience members may come dressed in costume. Prizes will be awarded for individual, couples and group costumes. Admission is by donation and free to NVU students. For more information call 802-274-9314 or visit Twilight Players Facebook page.
Content Warning: Night of the Living Dead contains material that may be offensive or upsetting for some.

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

Reception & Artist Talk Thursday November 14, 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

Jennifer Hubbard’s oil paintings feature scenes from Lamoille and Orleans counties, and capture barns and agricultural subjects in the vivid illumination of late afternoon light. In some paintings, she tweaks her color palette to add a contemporary, surreal twist on traditional rural landscape painting. The resulting paintings merge realistic, recognizable scenes with a touch of painterly abstraction. Jennifer Hubbard grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied painting and drawing at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, and Maryland Institute, College of Art. She moved to Vermont in 2009.

“My work has always been primarily focussed on portraiture. When I moved to Vermont, where the landscape is such a powerful influence on daily life, I decided to move my subjects outside, into the environment. I was interested in capturing the interaction between people and the outdoors, particularly as the seasons change.” Hubbard gradually started replacing figures with barns and other architectural elements. The resulting paintings bring to mind both Impressionism and Photorealism, and offer a contemporary perspective of the people and landscapes of Vermont.
