Vermont’s finest comedic duo, Steve Small and Harry McEnerny, return to the stage as all the citizens of Tuna, Texas, in Greater Tuna, by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears & Ed Howard.  A two-man, twenty character tour de force, Greater Tuna is a hilarious send-up of small town morals and mores in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas.

Melissa Lourie directs this long-running Off-Broadway hit.  In honor of Middlebury Actors Workshop’s 15th season, the show returns to the intimate A.R.T. black box theater where MAW had its start.  There’s not a bad seat in the house, and the theater is fully air conditioned, so come on down, y’all and have a barrel of laughs with us!

(N)O—Magic Flute, or: Sarastro stuck in traffic

Presented by Middlebury College’s German Language School 

Friday and Saturday, August 7-8 

What do you do when you’re presenting Mozart’s masterpiece The Magic Flute and one of the lead singers is stuck in traffic in Rutland?  How do you cope when cast members pursue their own interests (musical and amorous) that threaten to derail the whole production?  

The director of a traveling company is about to find out, as the Middlebury College German for Singers and Vocal Coaches program presents (N)O—Magic Flute, or: Sarastro stuck in traffic at Town Hall Theater on Friday and Saturday, August 7-8, at 8:30 pm.  The production is in German with no subtitles.  With musical direction by Stefan Rütter and stage direction by Bettina Matthias and Stephan Boving.

The program is part of the famous summer Language Schools at Middlebury College.  Students take an intensive course in the German language while simultaneously learning how to sing the German opera repertory.

8:30 pm, pre-show talk in English at 7:45.

Wednesday, September 9th

 Martín Prechtel, internationally known author of Secrets of the Talking Jaguar, Long Life, Honey in the Heart, The Unlikely Peace at Cuchamaquic, etc.will be reading from his new book, The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise

 In the book Prechtel shares profound insights on the relationship between grief and praise— how the inability that many of us have to grieve and weep properly is deeply linked with the inability to give praise for life. In modern society, grief is something that we usually experience in private, alone, and without the support of a community. Yet, as Prechtel says, “Grief expressed out loud for someone we have lost, or a country or home we have lost, is in itself the greatest praise we could ever give them. Grief is praise, because it is the natural way love honors what it misses.”

Prechtel, a leading thinker, writer and teacher in the search for the Indigenous soul in all people,  explains that the unexpressed grief prevalent in our society today is the reason for many of the social, cultural, and individual maladies that we are currently experiencing.

At base, his “little book,” as the author calls it, can be seen as a companion of encouragement, a little extra light for those deep and noble parts that inhabit us all.

After the talk and reading, Martín will sign copies of his book. 

7:30 PM.

$10 Tickets available at the door only.
