Current Season

Bell, Book and Candle

November 1-3 & 8-10, 2019

Evening Star Grange

Directed by Robert Wellington, this fun play by John Van Druten follows witch Gillian Holroyd, who casts a spell on an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a number of difficulties.

The 39 Steps

December 13-15 & 20-22, 2019

Evening Star Grange

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit comedic parody adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. Directed by Justin Fetterman, this production is a treat packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters, an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

Almost, Maine

March 6-8 & 13-15, 2020

Evening Star Grange

Written by John Cariani and directed by Brenda Seitz, this romantic comedy explores love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost, Maine. On one cold and magical night, the citizens of Almost - not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness - experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.

Mother of the Maid

April 24-26  & May 1-3, 2020

Hooker Dunham Theater

 

Hot off its off-Broadway run in New York City, director Jessica Gelter is excited to bring this play by Jane Anderson to a Vermont stage. This is the story of Joan of Arc's mother, a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing peasant woman whose faith is upended as she deals with the baffling journey of her odd and extraordinary daughter. This riveting play is an epic tale told through an unexpected and remarkable perspective.

Richard III

June 25-28, 2020

Rotary Stage in Brattleboro Memorial Park

Directed by Adrienne Major, this summer's Shakespeare in the Park production explores the effects of a tyrannical, but charismatic, leader. This play follows the deformed and jealous Richard, Duke of Gloucester, as he enacts his villainous plan to become king. Having killed King Henry VI and Henry’s son in Shakespeare's Henry VI, Richard sets out to kill all who stand between him and the throne of England.

Songs for a Summer Night

August 6-9, 2020

Evening Star Grange

Songs for a Summer Night is an evening of song, directed by Lin Snider. Broken into three acts - Summers of the Past, Summers for Relaxing, and Summers for Adventures - this revue is comprised of Broadway songs inspired by summer. What better way to spend a late-summer evening?
