Vermont Events in November


The Character of the Kingdom Art Exhibit 11/1/19 - 12/20/19

In 1991 Robert Mallory Klein, a world-traveled, retired diplomat living in Elmore with his wife, decided to paint the villages and hamlets of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom – over 100 in all. He spent many consecutive summers painting several views of each; broad strokes of bold color, afforded by summer light, are reminiscent of Hopper, portraying routine places that one might otherwise take for granted. He painted the ordinary scenes before him – the farmhouse, the store, the patched roofs and leaning porches – and captured, in doing so, the lives of the people who lived there – however modest and humble. What remains are the enduring images of the towns and villages he loved. In a sense he documented a history of the Northeast Kingdom; many of the places have changed with the times; many remain the same. Open Wednesday through Sunday.


The Cashore Marionettes: Simple Gifts 11/14/19 - 11/14/19

A Program for the entire family, The Cashore Marionettes are unmatched in artistry, grace, and refinement of movement. The internationally acclaimed Cashore Marionettes redefine the art of puppetry. The moving and humorous performances have astounded audiences in Europe, the Far East and across North America including stops at the Kennedy Center, Annenberg Center, Kravis Center, and many others. The program, Simple Gifts, is a series of touching portrayals and poignant scenes from everyday life set to stunning music by such composers as Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven, and Copland. Through a combination of virtuoso manipulation, beautiful music, theatrical illusion, and artistic insight, the original vignettes presented in Simple Gifts provide an entertaining and sensitive vision of what it is to be human. The performance explores a range of emotions with characters and actions that are amazingly convincing. The marionettes are engineering marvels and the quality of movement is extraordinary. There will be a limited number of seats available to the public, as area schools have been invited to attend, so please purchase your tickets early.


Hazen Union Drama Club - Once Upon a Mattress 11/21/19 - 11/21/19

Based upon the famous fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, Once Upon a Mattress tells the story of a Princess of noble birth, unable to sleep on a bed despite its many stacked mattresses, because of a tiny pea placed underneath the bottom layer. The kingdom is an unhappy one. King Sextimus has been struck dumb by a witch’s curse and is condemned not to speak again; Queen Agravia has assumed power and has decreed that no one in the Kingdom may wed until Prince Dauntless is married to a true princess of royal blood. So far the Queen has tested the eligibility of eleven applicants and each has failed the almost impossible tests the Queen has devised. The Knights and Ladies of the Court are most distressed by the situation but the most concerned are Lady Larken and her handsome lover, Sir Harry. A rollicking tale of challenge and deceit unfolds to the final curtain, where, in true fairy tale form, all’s well that ends well.
