‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’
A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.
Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom.
Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.
This is an on-screen event.

St. Johnsbury Players present their Fall production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, this October at the St. Johnsbury School Auditorium. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
The show is directed by Nora Barney and features vocal direction by Lydia Ham and choreography by Rachel Fauci. Performances are October 11, 12, 18 & 19 at 7:30pm and October 20 at 3pm. Tickets are $10 and $8 for students and seniors. The production is made possible in part through generous donations by Community National Bank, Passumpsic Savings Bank, and Union Bank.

In a rural parsonage, the three Brontë sisters write with a passion that jumps off the page. In 1845, their brother Branwell returns home in disgrace, dismissed from his employment in scandal, and throws their closed world into chaos. As their brother descends into addiction and insanity, his sisters, Anne, Charlotte and Emily, attempt to keep the household together - and write more furiously than ever before. Polly Teale's literary exploration of their turbulent lives flashes back and forth through time, focusing on the creation and haunting characters of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Brontë probes how the dark imagination of these three women shaped their lives and gave them their voices.
New Vermonters share their stories of migration.

The story of displacement is a universal human story. Whether displaced through forces beyond our control, through choice, or even through the acceleration of cultural and technological evolution around us, all humans are marked by adaptation and re-orientation. Understanding this helps us understanding ourselves.
In 2019, after working for years with military veterans and their stories, The Telling Project officially launched this new initiative, “The Same Moon,” creating performances in which immigrant and refugee populations had the opportunity to tell their stories to their communities. Whether generations past, or in their own lifetimes, every American citizen bears the legacy of displacement – an experience that has impacted, and unites, us all.
During the late summer and early fall KCP Presents will work with the nationally acclaimed Telling Project to meet with Vermonters who have power experiences of migration to share. Through a series of dialogues, we’ll create a documentary theater script. Then we’ll rehearse the performance to present this evening-length show.
