“OUR TOWN” of WOODCHUCK VERMONT,

an Original Stage Production from

Woodchuck Theatre Company and George Woodard

March 8, 15, 22 and 29.

 

WATERBURY CENTER, VT – It’s an earlier time, when the roads are not paved, the townspeople know each other by name, and communication mostly happens face to face. News is shared at the grain store, barber shop or the general store with the post office in the back. And when a farmer needs help, every one shows up. That’s OUR TOWN of Woodchuck, Vermont, the latest original production cooked up by Woodchuck Theatre founder George Woodard.

This is a family-friendly show full of old stories, jokes, tall tales and plenty of foot stomping and delightful music all surrounding the “fictional” town of Woodchuck, Vermont. George Woodard will be joined by Nancy MacDowell and Carrie Cook as well as Woodchuck Theatre veteran Ramona Godfrey.“Well, winter is long and spring is coming. In between there isn’t much else, so why not put on a show, get people grinning and have us some fun?” said George Woodard, a local stage performer, musician, and film director who is also a dairy farmer in Waterbury Center. “We’d like people to come out and sit with their neighbors for a couple of hours and enjoy themselves”.

The production will be staged on four consecutive Fridays in March at the same venue, the Thatcher Brook Primary School in Waterbury, VT. Show dates are March 8, 15, 22 and 29, at 7 p.m. and all tickets are $10. The Waterbury Historical Society will be selling snacks and beverages during the intermission to help raise funds and awareness of the 250th anniversary celebration of the town of Waterbury.

Tickets can be purchased in advance in Waterbury at the Stowe Street Emporium by reservation at 800-611-6045.

This production is generously sponsored by WDEV Radio, Waterbury Record, Stowe Reporter, and Cabot Creamery with special help from the Stowe Street Emporium.
