This fun and engaging performance will feature comedians and storytellers Susanne Schmidt and Kevin Gallagher who will describe how getting older is the best thing that could ever happen to you. The band “The Brevity Thing” will also perform amazing musical accompaniment. Join us for a delightful evening as we celebrate the time in our lives when we stop caring about what others think, looks aren’t everything, and it’s perfectly acceptable to sit at concerts.

Susanne Schmidt is a standup comedienne, master storyteller and producer for “The Moth”. Her work has been featured on CBS News, The Moth and National Public Radio. Susanne has appeared in The Boston Women in Comedy Festival, The Toronto SheDot Festival and named the “Best of the Valley Voices” by The Academy of Music Theater and New England Public Radio. Susanne is a teaching artist at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, a graduate professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and the mother of two amazing young men who would prefer that she stop talking about them on stage.

Kevin Gallagher is a psychotherapist by day, listening to the stories of life. But in the evenings he transforms into a storyteller, battling with the curse of the Irish: the gift of gab and the misery of insecurity. He lives in Vermont and is blessed with a cat and a partner, Michael and Blossom (you figure out who is who) and they provide much of the laundry and housework that completes his fulfilling life. When he is not in the throws of psychotherapy, he enjoys the lack of macramé he might otherwise endure. Kevin is a Moth GrandSLAM winner.

The Brevity Thing - Steve Goldman, Dave Ball and Jom Hammack, provide a level of entertainment unto itself. They are accomplished musicians who write, arrange, and perform music throughout Vermont.
