A look at what’s happening on the local theater circuit.
Rusty DeWees in Hardwick
Rusty DeWees takes his Tiny Town Hall Tour to Hardwick on Friday, Nov. 1.
The show is at the Hardwick Town House, 29 Church St., from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
The actor, comedian and musician — known for his character “The Logger” — will perform his one-man Blue-Collar Comedy show meets Prairie Home Companion. He says it’s uniquely modern, yet an old-time traditional evening of entertainment for all ages, longtime fans and first-timers.
Proceeds from ticket sales will be split 50/50 between WonderArts VT and REACH! to be used for after-school programing, a crucial part of the day for many families.
Since 2011, REACH! has provided hundreds of after-school and summer camp enrichment opportunities for Craftsbury, Hardwick and Wolcott.
WonderArts VT leads after-school classes in the arts, recreation, technology and sustainability at all REACH! sites in addition to Lakeview Elementary School in Greensboro, Woodbury Elementary and the Albany Community School.
