Saturday Storefront Trilogy

Saturday, May 16 and 23 - 11:00 am and 2:00 pm

Location:
452 Railroad Street
St. Johsnbury, VT

Tickets: $8 in advance, $10 at the door

“Watching Modern Times Theater founders Rose and Justin perform is inspiring on many fronts. They are confident and consummate professionals who know their art well. They are wonderfully creative—using their multiple skills to craft original content in their own inimitable style. They are hysterically historic—utilizing the traditional arts of puppetry, theater, vaudeville, mime, music, and storytelling with wry humor.” -- Rob Mermin, founder Circus Smirkus

Modern Times Theater is bringing its inimitable and wildly popular SATURDAY STOREFRONT TRILOGY to downtown St. Johnsbury for the first three weekends of March. An empty storefront will be converted into a pop up theater, featuring an epic Punch and Judy puppet melodrama in three parts. It’s Saturday morning cartoons, LIVE!

Each weekend features a new installment of “The Perils of Mr. Punch”, chronicling the troubles and travails of puppetry’s first couple- Punch and Judy. These shows feature brand new puppets and characters, as well as classic puppetry gags and tricks. The audience is invited to write letters to Mr. Punch, which will inform the creation of the next episode. Each week includes raffle prizes, delicious refreshments, live music, and a hilarious all-ages show. The atmosphere is lively and friendly, with pre-show music from a collection of vintage 78 rpm records, played on a hand-cranked gramophone (audience participation required). Both children and adults leave with faces and bellies sore from laughing.

Modern Times Theater delights crowds with a fresh take on the entertainment styles of the past, including novelty music, handmade puppetry, and classic comedy. Husband and wife performers Justin Lander and Rose Friedman have been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows, and performing original variety acts with Vermont Vaudeville for over a decade.

Rickie Lee Jones

Saturday, May 16, 8:00 pm

Location:
Colonial Theatre
2050 Main St
Bethlehem, NH

Ticket: $68 Reserved, $52 General admission, $44 Members general admission.

Named as one of the 30 greatest women in rock, Rickie Lee Jones has been hard to classify ever since she came on the scene with the instant classic “Chuck E.’s in Love” in 1979. Jones began her career in the pop realm, but in her 15 albums, she has experimented fearlessly with her sound and persona. She’s performed straight jazz, blues, synth pop, new wave rock, pop covers, trip-hop, gospel, ambitious singer-songwriter music, and more, putting her unique spin on each style. Each new round of music-making activity by Rickie Lee Jones is different. Her live concerts have almost without exception been unforgettable experiences over her more than 30 years of performing. Her artistry is brilliantly underlined with her latest album KICKS which spans two decades (50s–70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of songs that were pivotal to her musical journey.

British Pub Sing

Includes traditional fare & traditions with local musicians Fifth Business

Saturday, March 21, 6:30 pm

Location:
142 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Tickets: $12

Join us at 142 Eastern on the vernal equinox for a fun and casual evening of song and merriment! You may be wondering just what a pub sing is... The pub sing or pub session tradition originates in the British Isles. “The Pub” being a place where people gather as much to socialize with friends and family as to enjoy a local brew, the addition of music seems only natural. A pub sing isn’t a performance, it’s more like a participatory grown-up sing along. Popular repertoire tends to be songs with a call-and-response structure or with an easily repeated chorus so that the crowd can join in and ‘raise the rafters. Come listen, play tunes, sing along, perhaps lead a song or two from memory. Pub songs, work songs, sea shanties, and other traditional songs are welcome. If you have a favorite, please plan to share it with us! Also on tap will be a wee bit of morris dancing and perhaps a mummers play. We promise not to demonstrate the pub tradition of the three-man carry.

Fifth Business has been singing pub-songs together for over 15 years. Nicolas Anzalone's fiddle contributes ethereal flights and wry commentary; Stuart Corso keeps everyone alert with his accordions; Steve Davie leads the herd with guitar and octave mandolin. Heather Alger and Kate Davie provide random percussion, and everyone sings in a repertoire that is Not (entirely) Safe For Work.

Traditional pub fare is curated by local chef Sarah Spence. The evening includes a veggie and meat pies, pickled eggs, with a signature spotted dick for dessert. Sarah has worked at the Rabbit Hill Inn, Karme Choling, and Bread&Butter. She currently has her own catering company.

This will be a BYOB event.

Please note: Apologies, but since the menu is prix fixe table’hote, special dietary restrictions cannot be accommodated. Ticket sales are final purchase. No refunds

Romeo and Juliet

Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky

Sunday, June 7, 12:55 pm
Tuesday, June 16, 7:00 pm

Location:
Catamount Arts Center
115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Tickets: Adults - $18, Members - $15, Students - $6

Running time: 185 minutes

Despite each of their families being merciless enemies, Romeo and Juliet are deeply in love. The rivalry between the two families will cost Mercutio’s life, causing Romeo a desire of vengeance for the loss of his friend.

The star-crossed lovers’ tragic fate inspired Prokofiev’s remarkable cinematic score, from the delicate theme of Juliet to the ominous Dance of the Knights. Bolshoi stars Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov wholly embody the two eternal lovers in Alexei Ratmansky’s stunning evocation of love at first sight.

This is an on-screen event.

Rising Appalachia

Saturday, July 11, 8:00 pm

Location:
Colonial Theatre
2050 Main St
Bethlehem, NH

Ticket: $49 Reserved, $39 General admission, $33 Members general admission.

Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape.

Led by the collective voice of sisters Leah and Chloe, and joined by their beloved band – percussionist Biko Casini and bassist/guitarist David Brown – Rising Appalachia is a melting pot of folk music simplicity, textured songwriting, and those bloodline harmonies that only siblings can pull off. Listen for a tapestry of song, clawhammer banjo tunes, fiddle, double bass, acoustic guitar, djembe, barra, bodhran, spoken word, and a wealth of musical layering that will leave you called to action and lulled into rhythmic dance simultaneously. It is both genre bending and familiar at the same time. Proudly born and raised in the concrete jungle of Atlanta, Georgia, sharpening their instincts in the mountains of Appalachia, and fine tuning their soul on the streets of New Orleans they have crafted a 6-album career from the dusts of their passion.

Location:

East Ryegate, VT

After purchasing your ticket, please fill out the registration form found HERE.
Weekend retreat includes a weekend of fun, ritual, instruction, food, and drink provided by Will and Lynn. Primitive housing provided for free! Commuting is optional.

A magical, musical retreat in the mountains of Vermont! Lynn and Will Rowan will lead a gentle weekend of singing with dancing, storytelling, drumming, and ritual in the beautiful hills of northern Vermont! No music reading skills required, just a willingness to open to music, community, and nature. The weekend will include music from harmony singing traditions around the world. We will also sing rounds, chants, and songs of solidarity to celebrate the earth, reinforce our interconnectedness, and heal our hearts in these challenging times. Friday and Saturday we will make a procession up the hill with bagpipes and drums to honor the sun in song, then light our evening fire for stories, music, and merriment. Please bring musical instruments if you have them! The weekend will culminate in a Sunday afternoon community concert by Lynn & Will and the Summersong Singers. Join kindred spirits, friends new and old, and music-lovers and celebrate summer’s end with us!

Meals and accommodations
The traditional farmyard barn where we will be rehearsing has a common sleeping area upstairs. Participants may alternately bring tents to camp onsite or choose to commute. There are no onsite showers, but there is swimming nearby in a stream and pond. All participants will take part in the daily chores of the camp including cooking our communal meals, cleaning up after meals, and keeping our space tidy, helping build our community for the weekend.

Location
The weekend will be held at Whitehill Farm, located in the southern most point of the Northeast Kingdom. The Farm was a traditional dairy farm and we continue to pasture heifers to this day. The homestead continues to maintain 40 acres, most of which are pasture, but there is a 3 acre parcel of cedars and five acres of sugar maples that are tapped each year. There are outstanding views from the top of this traditionally rugged property where you can take in the White Mountains and the Connecticut River. The property also has a small stream and a neighboring farm yard pond where we can cool off each day.

Ages
10-Adult
Camp is not geared towards children under 10. Participants aged 10-11 should be accompanied by an adult or older sibling. People aged 12 and up can attend independently.

For more information, please contact Heather Alger: Heather.L.Alger@gmail.com

Directors

Will Rowan
Will was raised in a community where folk music and dance played an important role in bringing people together to celebrate. He fell in love with ensemble singing while touring with Village Harmony, learning from master singers and dancers at home and abroad. He studied music composition and ethnomusicology at Marlboro College, winning awards in choral composition and publishing several pieces. He also holds a Masters of Music in Choral Conducting from the Bard College Conservatory. Will is a multi-instrumentalist, playing banjo, piano, accordion, bagpipes, and percussion. With his sensitive style and years of cross-cultural teaching experience from international tours with Northern Harmony, Will is now a sought after song leader, teaching Village Harmony camps in the US and Lithuania.

Lynn Rowan
Lynn has dedicated her professional life to the study of vocal performance in its many and varied forms and has performed and taught workshops, lessons and lead choirs in singing for the past decade. These days she spends most of her time performing with her vocal band, Windborne, focusing on songs of social justice. Having grown up immersed in the folk communities of Vermont and discovering harmony singing traditions of many cultures through Village Harmony (which she now teaches for), her work is deeply rooted in and influenced by nature, history, and folklore of not only her own home, but also rich traditions from all over the world. Lynn's teaching style is clear, warm, and encouraging.
