257 Western Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

The St Johnsbury Players started in 1936 as a group of friends getting together to put on a show. That worked well and was fun so they continued to perform. W Clark Noyes was a founding member. Freddie King joined the group 3 years later. They had been the backbone of the Players for many years. They both performed well into their 80s.

The Players started to perform musicals in 1975 with “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”. The hardest part of this Revue was selecting songs from 40+ years of musicals.

Clark Noyes, at the time of the 60th Revue was quoted as saying about performing, “It’s the friends you make, the people you get to know that otherwise you wouldn’t. They’re some of the best friends I’ve ever known. It’s a form of live entertainment that involves your friends and neighbors. And it sure beats sitting in front of the tube.”

Cast members are Elizabeth Bergman, Mark and Sandi Breen, Donna Brewster, Becky Canedy, Jan Clausing, Lora Dean, Barry Hayes, Brendan Hadash, Michele Laberge, C Sanford Murray, Jessica Simpson, Bill Taxter, Bill Vinton, Laura Wayne and Pat Webster.

The Musicians are Sean Breen, Kaci Cochran, Johanna Kennedy, Dottie Morton, Donna Murray and Bill Vinton. Barry Hayes is the Director, Jane Vinton is the Producer, Valarie Webster is the Stage Manager. Josh Duncan and Amanda Allen are the Light Technicians. Sarah Bengsten will be House Manager.

Many of the cast have been with Players for 40 or more years. They represent towns from both New Hampshire and Vermont, some traveling 45 minutes to attend rehearsals.

The Revue will be performed Thursday August 17 and Friday August 18 at 7:30 PM and Saturday August 19 at 2 PM. The venue is the St Johnsbury School on Western Avenue. Tickets are available through Catamount Arts or at the door.

The show sponsors are Community National, Passumpsic Savings and Union Banks.

For more info contact Jane Vinton at 802-748-4002.

In addition to the Revue the Players have put together an Exhibit called “Let’s Put On a Show” at the History and Heritage Center at 421 Summer St in St Johnsbury. The Center’s Summer hours are Monday through Saturday, 10-4. The Exhibit includes many items from the Players’ 7 Volumes of Scrapbooks, encompassing over 1300 pages.

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.

★★★★★ "Brutal yet ferociously funny", Metro

★★★★★ "Billie Piper makes a shattering Yerma in Simon Stone’s inspired reworking of Lorca", The Observer

★★★★★ "A shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic", The Independent

Bellows Falls Opera House
7 Square
Bellows Falls, VT

Tickets: $55, $50, $40, and $30

Before The Daily Show, Full Frontal, and The Colbert Report, this Washington, DC-based comedy troupe gave audience laugh cramps with their bipartisan lampooning. The Capitol Steps began in 1981 as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize their employers, and haven’t let up since. If you’ve been keeping with the news, you know there’s no shortage of material. The troupe is coming back to Bellows Falls with a new show of musical and political comedy. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or Democrat, a snowflake or a deplorable: neither side is safe from the group that puts the “MOCK” in Democracy!

Come see the group that has elevated political satire to an art form. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll support a worthy cause.

All proceeds benefit Windham & Windsor Housing Trust.

“Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” - The New Yorker

Jane Austen is one of the most popular and beloved authors of all time. Born in the late 18th century, she wrote with great insight and wit about the lives of the English upper middle class. Her characters seem to drift through the inescapable life of leisure that only privilege can afford, yet they are forever negotiating the reality of birthright and custom.

Sense & Sensibilty is one of Jane Austen’s most popular novels. The characters live in a world in which choices are limited - especially for the women. The story revolves around the lives of two sisters, Elinor who is level-headed and full of sense, and the hopelessly romantic, Marianne. After the untimely and unexpected death of their father, both sisters and their mother are forced to leave their comfortable lives, while their half-brother and his wife inherit the family estate. The only hope for these two sisters is a profitable marriage. Seduction, courtship, love, heartbreak and surprise abound in this classic romantic comedy.

Aquila expands the canon of classical works for the stage by adapting Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility in a bold and exciting new production. Directed by Aquila’s artistic director Desiree Sanchez, this production will incorporate her innovative use of space, movement, design, and sound. D.C. Metro said “Sanchez is wildly inventive, and the production choices made were carried out beautifully.” NY Theater Review says “her direction is polished and laser sharp. She gets the maximum amount of potential out of every stage moment, has exceptional attention to detail, and is a master of direction.”

“A classically trained, modernly hip troupe.” –The New York Times

Stephen Sondheim’s legendary musical is staged for the first time at the National Theatre and broadcast live to cinemas.

New York, 1971. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves.

Winner of Academy, Tony, Grammy and Olivier awards, Sondheim’s previous work includes A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George.

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
