Tickets must be purchased all at once and the discount will be automatically applied in your basket.  Patrons may also contact Upstage Players about group sales and school rates at andrewlidestri@gmail.comThe fictional town of “Almost, Maine” is buried in snow. The play is a series of scenes about trying to make meaningful connections. The offbeat, authentic residents -- who fall in and out of love one enchanted Friday night -- call the place Almost (it never organized into a town). Each scene features a different couple seeking a sense of meaning in the chilly, uncharted wilderness of love. Their brief stories are laced with magic realism, uncanny coincidences, and metaphors taken literally, like a shoe dropping from the sky.  As the Northern Lights appear in the sky above, the audience finds themselves admiring these hardworking honest characters who take time to wonder about things, the same things that unite us all.  Though written about northern Maine, this piece really hits home for all of us in the North Country combining universal themes and the spirit and culture of those who live in this part of the country.  Almost, Maine is the first production in Upstage’s new directing mentorship program and is being shaped by a great artistic team. Andrew Lidestri, Upstage Artistic Director, is at the helm of the production but scenes are also directed by Loriann Jesseman, Sage Couture, and (new to the players) Grant Fuller.  The cast will consist of some wonderful local talent and this ensemble show provides moments for its whole cast to shine.  Upstage Actors Dennis MacKay, Jess Griffiths, & Connor MacDonald will appear in this production and have all recently been nominated in the top ten for Best Actor Awards by the New Hampshire Theatre Awards for their performances in Upstage Shows this past season.  Loriann Jesseman, Andrew Lidestri, Mark Roberts, Madalyn Sheehy and Sage Couture also return to Upstage to fill roles in Almost, Maine.  Newcomers to the Players but not to the stage, Robyn Greenstone, David Kyle and Courtney Vashaw round out this company to breathe life into the residents of “Almost”.   This play is a great look into aspects of love and it’s no coincidence that it coincides with Valentine’s Day.  Bring someone special, come with a group, or come by yourself ... you never know who you’ll meet.  There will also be two special talk – back sessions.  Our directors and cast will take the stage following the two Sunday matinee performances to discuss the play and answer any audience questions about the piece or the players.  The sessions are free and an optional addition to your experience.

From New England’s Largest Comedy Club NetworkFriday, February 26, 7:00 pmLocation:St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts155 Emery StreetBerlin, New HampshireTickets: $15.00 adults/$10.00 under 18 The headliner for the evening is Tom Hayes.  Tom fell into the Boston comedy scene along with such names as Stephen Wright, Lenny Clarke, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Denis Leary. Later came such names as Dane Cook and Louis CK. Along the way, he rose to the Boston standard and headlined at prestigious Boston Clubs as well as clubs in the greater New England area. He has opened for such national acts as Jeff Dunham, Phyllis Diller, The Smothers Brothers, The Four Tops and The Four Seasons. Tom’s comedic style is a hilarious self-deprecating style mixed with improvisational and interactive audience participation.  He has also doubled as a corporate impostor, taking such surrogate roles as a visiting Harvard Professor, a Medical Doctor and a Corporate CEO. Opening the show is Rob Steen.  At an age when most teenagers are contemplating a part-time job, Rob Steen was starting a company. A Boston street performer at age 12, Steen created North Shore Comedy in 1986, when he was 15. With juggling and improv skills under his belt, he decided to give stand-up comedy a shot.  “I began sneaking into comedy clubs in Boston to do my act”, said Steen.  “I was not the best comic back then, but as I got to know the other acts, I began to book small clubs all over my hometown and beyond.” At just 21, Rob was booking more than 20 shows a week and performing as well. He was the youngest agent in New England with the largest client base.  Steen performs more than 350 shows a year personally and has been a regular guest on the Late Show with David Letterman.  His roster of more than 300 comedians from Boston, Los Angeles and New York are seen regularly throughout the country and on television.

Lumbermen began living in logging camps in the Maine woods in the early 1800s. They were the pioneers who created a successful self-contained working community in the woods, and on who’s backs the state’s economy and history were largely established.

They were the innovators who established the method to cut and deliver hundreds of millions of board feet of lumber through thick forests and down crooked waterways, to the mills- using only horses, oxen, and manpower. They were unique in their character, ethics, morals, strength, and skills, and they symbolize Maine’s gritty and resilient reputation. These are some of the most notable figures in Maine's history; yet their stories, personalities and significance are often overlooked by educators and historians.

Up to the turn of the century, it was not a board of directors or a bureaucratic system that made the logging camp and industry successful, it was the skills, integrity, and personality of individuals. In The Blood illustrates and celebrates these individuals, their character and history. The audience is taken into his rugged environment- into the camp, onto the haul roads, landings and yards, rivers and lakes. In The Blood creates a vivid world and brings the lumberman’s 19th century reality to life.

The film/exhibit employ stories and descriptions told by the men themselves, thus offering an accurate, detailed, and seemingly personal experience- as though you are sitting in a camp listening to the men. You will forget, at least fleetingly, you are watching on a screen and not sitting in a camp, driving down a river, or rolling on the yard.

The Very Open Rehearsal will be facilitated by teaching artist Evan Premo, who is also a member of the Festival Orchestra. The heart of sound is elusive and often mysterious. How is it that two people listening to the same thing can hear completely different messages? That question is the driving force behind Evelyn Glennie’s April 9th performance at the St. Johnsbury School Auditorium. Evelyn Glennie is the world’s premiere percussionist, but that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to describing her accomplishments and impact. Although she has received over 80 international awards as a soloist and composer, including three GRAMMYs, Evelyn’s most powerful work has been through her quest to help teach the world to listen. Evelyn has been exploring the many ways we can listen since loosing her hearing at the age of 12. "My career and my life have been about listening in the deepest possible sense. Losing my hearing meant learning how to listen differently, to discover features of sound I hadn’t realized existed. Losing my hearing made me a better listener."This concert is part of a growing collaboration between Catamount Arts and the Community Engagement Lab (CEL), based in Montpelier. It features Evelyn accompanied by the CEL Festival Orchestra on works for percussion and marimba, as well as masterworks by Tchaikovsky, Dvořák and Pärt. You, our audience, will be invited to participate with Evelyn and the orchestra in an exploration of how you listen. This hands-on—ears-on!—experience also features voices from our community sharing the stage to refresh the familiar, and make the new suddenly personal and intimate. I hope you will join us for what is sure to be a one-of-a-kind concert event.

For more information about the workshop, please contact Vicki (moorefamily589@gmail.com) or Julie (sturmvt@gmail.com) at Kingdom Mountain Dulcimers. Award-winning, internationally acclaimed duo, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly present delightful programs of traditional American and Celtic folk songs and percussive dance. Elwood and Aubrey blend gorgeous harmonies and play an astonishing array of instruments including guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, limberjacks, and other surprises including a thrilling interpretation of freestyle Appalachian clog dancing. Their performance is appealing to all ages, and with humor, audience participation, and a relaxed stage presence, Aubrey and Elwood explain song origins to give more relevance to the material.
