December 09, 2022

Celebrate this beautiful time of year with Lost Nation Theater’s STORIES FOR THE SEASON on Wednesday December 21st – Back Live Onstage!

It’s LNT’s Gift to you! 


On Wednesday December 21st at 7pm, many of your favorite Lost Nation Theater and local artists will gather, in person once again, to perform dramatic readings of stories, poems, & song from around the world. The return of the light and the peaceful magic of this winter season is heralded in tales from a host of different traditions.


In this year’s Stories of the Season you’ll hear Native American songs, African legends, Hanukkah poems, a little O. Henry, Pagan tales, original stories, drumming, groove with a bit of gospel – and a Beatle tune or two!


The evening, including some of your very favorite LNT stars, is made possible by the generosity of these fabulous performers and technicians!


We’re overjoyed to bring you an eclectic group of Vermont artists for the evening: Jordan Mensah of The Shidaa Project, Abenaki Singer/Storyteller Bryan Blanchette, LNT fav’s Kim Bent, Taryn Noelle, Maura O'Brien, Shanda Williams, and Maggie York, friends Michel Kabay, and Ben T Matchstick  - who is our master of ceremonies.


Stories for the Season is directed by Kathleen Keenan, scenic design is by Kim Bent & Chris Zahm, lighting design is by Samuel J Biondolillo and David Orlando, sound reinforcement is provided by Andrew Vachon and technical director is Robyn Osiecki.


Much humor and wit, tenderness and wisdom will be peppered through this entire evening of classic and newly discovered songs and stories. It’s fun for the whole family.
