The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in American history. When it opened in the Sullivan Street Theater in 1960, nobody would have predicted that it would still be playing there in 2002! Its delightful story of romance, comedy, illusion, magic, and the bittersweet lessons of life has proved irresistible to generations of theater goers.

THE NUTCRACKER’S ADVENTURE
Written and directed by Sarah Stone
Choreographer: Nancy Wollum
Producer: Mary Longey
The Middlebury Community Players Foundations will stage the children’s theater production of The Nutcracker’s Adventure in the Middlebury Union High School auditorium December 4-6, 2016. This will be the third year that Players Foundations has brought to life a fun musical dramatic portrayal of Tchaikovsky’s well known holiday-themed ballet. No matter each child’s unique abilities—dancing, singing, acting, gymnastics and tumbling, juggling, or just plain clowning around—this is a wonderful opportunity to show off his/her talent, learn self-confidence and enjoy a special first experience in Creative Dramatics. It’s also a chance for parent and child to perform together, since there are several adult roles! This is a free activity that only requires commitment and attendance. Open to ages 7-70! All children who audition will be cast.
Auditions on Saturday, September 10, 9:30am – noon,
Middlebury Union High School Auditorium,
73 Charles Avenue, Middlebury 05753
NOTE: Children must be 7 years old by October 1 to audition.

A Play by David Lindsay-Abaire
In Good People, Margie, a tough middle-aged “Southie” from the wrong part of Boston, loses her job and is one Bingo game away from homelessness.In reaching out to an old flame from her youth (who is now a successful doctor), Margie risks all as she tries to find a fresh start. Will Margie’s luck finally change for the better? An insightful comedy of class and culture, this play was a Broadway hit (Francis McDormand won a Tony for Best Lead Actress in 2011), darkly funny and surprisingly touching.
*Contains profanity and mature themes.
Director: Kristen Ginsburg
Producers: Mary Longey and Elizabeth Maher

The hopes, dreams, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of common men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It's a highly original look at the American landscape that's simply impossible to forget.
