THE LARAMIE CYCLE

On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal. In the aftermath, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted more than 200 interviews with its citizens. From the transcripts, the playwrights constructed an extraordinary chronicle of life in the town after the murder:  The Laramie Project, a modern classic which has become one of the most-performed theater pieces in America.

In The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, the troupe revisits the town a decade after the tragedy, finding a community grappling with its legacy and its place in history. The two plays together comprise an epic and deeply moving theatrical cycle that explores the life of an American town over the course of a decade.

JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH JR
by Roald Dahl
Directed by Katrina Spenceman with Danielle Sessler and Hallie Flower

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH JR is a brand-new take on this beloved tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by TONY Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (of Dear Evan Hansen fame) and a witty and charming book by Timothy Allen McDonald, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is a “masterpeach”!

With lots of outlandish and larger-than-life human and insect characters, this show will be a fun adventure for one and all!

NEYT’s Theatre Adventure presents: QUESTERY

Wednesday, May 16 (Sensory-Friendly) at 10:30 am

Thursday, May 17 at 10:30 am

Friday, May 18 at 10:30 am

 

Once upon a time, a young lad with autism dreamed of being an author, a playwright, and a director.  He wrote many original stories and was encouraged by many to pursue his dreams, because at Theatre Adventure, “Pursuing one’s dreams is the stuff of life!”  

As a young man, he wrote an adventure tale told with an eclectic group of animal characters.  This published legend was set in times of yore, and now, the Theatre Adventure Wednesday Troupe is bringing this fantastic story of an aspiring playwright, Questery, to the stage this coming May 16, 17, and 18.

 

Many of the Questery characters join together on a quest to rescue a character that has been kidnapped.  They are also on a mission to destroy the villainous captor, Turkator. Along the way, the troupe meets many unusual characters--some whimsical, others scary, some who are brave, and others who are quite humorous. Original songs are woven throughout the journey—an expedition that challenges the wit and quick thinking of the clan.

In order to honor audience members with special sensory needs, there will be a Sensory-Friendly performance on Wednesday May 16 at 10:30 am, where expressions and needs are welcomed as an intrinsic part of being an audience member.

 

Come join us. Inclusive theatre is alive and well in Southern Vermont!

All performances take place at the  West Village Meeting House,  29 South Street, West Brattleboro
