Giselle: Bolshoi Ballet in HD


Sunday, November 29

The famous Bolshoi ballet presents one of the most well-known ballets in history, Giselle. The young peasant girl Giselle dies when she learns that the man she loves, Albrecht, has betrayed her. Against her own will, she joins the wilis, vengeful spirits who now turn against Albrecht and condemn him to dance until he dies of exhaustion. This treasure of romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in classical repertoire, touching upon the great romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama. 

$17/ $10 students

Warren Miller’s Chasing Shadows

Wed, Dec 2 and Thu Dec 3

Chasing Shadows, the 66th annual winter sports film from Warren Miller Entertainment, is a celebration of why we commit ourselves every winter to a passion that’s guaranteed to melt away every spring. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing storms, snow, lines that live on the world’s highest peaks, and the freedom that these things grant us. 

 Follow the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey as they push toward the edge, where the mountain’s shadow cast below is all that leads the way. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman, Marcus Caston and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of their dreams: Chamonix, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya.

 Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that motivate us to keep searching for more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.

We’ll serve the winning wines exclusively for the next year. We also want to challenge you to find the best Vermont cheddar, so local cheese-makers will be providing delicious cheddars to taste.

Sons of Serendip

Sons of Serendip

Monday, December 21

With their signature blend of R&B, gospel and neo soul, the “America’s Got Talent” finalists create holiday melodies with harp, cello, piano and voice. The Sons of Serendip (SoS) have made headlines for their  considerable classical expertise and ability to create a uniquely sumptuous and emotionally stirring sound.  

Best known for winning fourth place and the hearts of America on season nine of America’s Got Talent, this classically trained Quartet is comprised of musicians Micah Christian (lead vocals), Kendall Ramseur (cello, vocals), Mason Morton (harp), and Cordaro Rodriguez (piano, vocals).

The evening will include Sons of Serendip’s hit arrangement of “O Holy Night” and a much-anticipated original composition “Miss You Most”, a heartfelt ballad of long distance love during the Christmas season.  Other holiday favorites range from the secular (“Little Drummer Boy” and “O Come Emmanuel”) to traditionally festive (“Let it Snow” and “The Christmas Song”). Don’t miss your chance to see these magnificent performers at the height of their abilities.

Scrooge, A Christmas Carol

Tuesday, December 22 

presented by No Strings Marionettes

No Strings Marionettes bring their magic to Town Hall Theater with their adaptation of  Scrooge, A Christmas Carol. This timeless story uses eighteen large-scale marionettes to whisk you through the gaslit streets of Charles Dickens’ London. If the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future can awaken the forgotten love and joy within stingy Scrooge’s heart, just think what the story can do to encourage the everlasting Spirit of Christmas in us all.

$10/ Free ages 16 and under

Gift Certificate

Town Hall Theater Gift Certificate

Sometimes, you just have no idea what to get your loved ones for the holidays. Should I give him pants again this year? Does she really need another soy candle? 
With a Town Hall Theater gift certificate, you can give the gift of a show, or a piece of art, or a class. The best part about a Town Hall Theater gift certificate is that whomever receives it gets to pick how they use it. They can choose from a staggering array of diverse events: live performing arts, live music, broadcasts, comedy, dances. Town Hall has it all. But they can also choose to use it on one of our many classes or a piece of artwork in the Jackson Gallery. 

Be a gift-hero this year and give them something they’ll love: a Town Hall Theater gift certificate. 

Available online and by calling 802-382-9222.
