Theatre Adventure Program
Directed by Laura Lawson Tucker and Darlene Jenson
Sponsored by Brattleboro Ford-Subaru, Brown Computer Solutions, and Green River Data Analysis
Theatre Adventure actors with and without disabilities create brave and vibrant theater. With innovative artistic vision Theatre Adventure actors inspire awakened views from their audiences.
“Tales of King Arthur” begins with young Arthur also known as Wart. The audience will witness the lessons from Merlyn who is determined to train young Arthur to become the future King of England. Wart’s adventures lead to the Tournament where Wart successfully pulls the sword from the stone. Hail to the King!
Time passes and young King Arthur becomes a man. There will be a wedding dance with Queen Guinevere and then the forming of the Round Table with his Knights.
Alas, trouble befalls King Arthur. The Lady of the Lake bestows the mighty sword, Excalibur to the King to help him remember, “Might for right.”
This telling of the King Arthur legend is replete with resplendent costumes and stunning acting in addition to shadow puppetry, magic, adventure, dancing, a sword ritual, and more! This is a one-hour show with no intermission.

You're a Good Man Charlie Brown
by Clark Gesner
Directed by Micheal Trzos
Sponsored by Farnum Insulators
"When it comes to Broadway musicals, there are a handful of shows that almost every theatergoer is familiar with. Whether it’s South Pacific, Grease or Les Miserables there is usually a song or two that anyone can sing along to. These musicals are timeless. They carry a history with them and yet leave room for exploration. That's why reviving “You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown” as this year’s alumni show is so exciting! It gives us the chance to explore a world created by Charles Schulz and connect it to modern times while paying tribute to America’s most lovable characters. Not to mention a cast made up of adult actors who entertained the Brattleboro community as children. So please, join us this June in welcoming back the Peanuts Gain to NEYT once again! Good grief, you won't regret it!"
Performances: June 18-21
