Outdoor and what to bring!

All shows are scheduled to be outdoors under the stars!

Please bring the following:

  • Blankets to sit on
  • Low sling back lawn chairs (if you’d like)
  • Sweaters/sweatshirts in case it gets chilly in the evening
  • Bug spray
  • DO NOT bring umbrellas, because this blocks audience behind you. If you want to bring a tarp to sit on or to flip over your head in case a quick sprinkle of rain drifts by, that is fine!

Rain date policy:

  • For all outdoor shows we have rain dates and indoor venues standing by.
  • You will be contacted by 4 p.m. the day of the show if the musical has been moved indoors or moved to a rain date. If you do not hear from us, the show will go on as planned.
  • Indoor venues for rain dates are in large gyms or venues

The Listen Up Project is an ambitious original musical based on eight months of interviews, workshops, conversations and listening sessions with more than 800 teens across Vermont.​

From the vast and diverse stories gathered over this time, a script was written. Youth were engaged in the script- and song-writing process and the musical was created.

Contains Mature Themes
