“At the first rehearsal of my first show at LNT (The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged) Kim Bent insisted that we should engage in tumbling exercises to build our ensemble. As the three of us – all total strangers to each other – took turns climbing onto Kim’s shoulders and hurling ourselves around the room, I did not realize that this moment encapsulated all the experiences I would have in Vermont for the next five years – diving right in, taking big risks and of course hurling myself around a room!”

– Christopher Scheer, Actor
