Thanks For A Great 2019 Season

October 20, 2019

Thanks for a Great 2019 Mainstage Season
and stay tuned for upcoming special events!


Wow! Where did this year go?

Well, it went into 5 Mainstage shows, 3 Youth Productions, and plethora of special events - from hosting NEFA's Creative Convention in June, to the Kick-Off Cabaret and spring Egg Hunt, back in March, to our Tony-Party, to Toby McNutt and most recently Abby Paige's Work In Progress sharings.

Plus all the artists whose work hung in our Lobby Gallery this season.

We are so grateful to all the creative folks who worked with us  - on-stage and off - to make this an extraordinary season of collaboration and quality.
We are grateful to the parents and guardians of all the students, who made their participation possible.

We are so grateful to our audience for coming and appreciating - and the sponsors who also made it all possible.

And finally - to the photographers who captured these moments!

Stay Tuned! Special Events and the Announcement of our 2020 Season coming soon!

LNT-Aid takes the stage November 21.
Followed by Stories for the Season December 18.

For those of you wondering - due to a perfect storm of events, some good (like weddings) - others not so good (like illness) - The Poe Spooktacular is not happening in 2019!

Meantime, we'll be hosting many a "guest event" in the space - including Hunger Mountain Coop, Voting, and craft fairs!

And enjoy these reminders of wonderful shows in 2019:
