QNEK Productions

Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti, opens the season with hilarious plot twists and wonderfully absurd comings and goings of an American bachelor in Paris managing three international fiancé stewardesses by their flight schedules. Things get turbulent when a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off his careful planning. Add an anxious visiting buddy and an exasperated maid, and you’ve got a delicious farce! Directed by Jenny Dunne.

Vermont Symphony Orchestra

“Made in Vermont” Music Festival

Anthony Princiotti, conductor

Autumn in Vermont signals the return of glorious foliage and glorious
music, as the VSO’s “Made in Vermont Music Festival” tours the state.  The
program includes a concerto by Dittersdorf for an under- sung pair of solo
instruments (viola and double bass), and Holst’s popular St. Paul’s Suite.
Beth Wiemann, a Burlington native, will join us to introduce the world
premiere she has written for the VSO, “Before the Snow.”  The concert
concludes with Haydn’s Symphony No. 85, nicknamed “La Reine” because its
grace and power found favor with Queen Marie Antoinette.

Check back for more, updated information.

Wait  Until  Dark by  Frederick  Knott,  is  one  of  those  breath-­holding,  knuckle-­whitening,   edge-­of-­your-­seat  thrillers  that  will  give  you  good  reason  to  be  afraid  when  the  lights  go  out.     When  a  game  of  cat  and  mouse  spirals  out  of  control,  an  unsuspecting  blind  housewife  and her young neighbor will have to hold their own if they’re going to survive against a gang of hardened  con-­men  who  will  do  anything  to  get  what  they  want.  Directed by Susan-Lynn Johns
