An Evening with Dar Williams

An Evening with Dar Williams @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Dar Williams has been called “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters” by The New Yorker. Known as much for her staunch progressive ideals as her raw acoustic energy, Williams has been captivating audiences with her sheer elegance and honesty in her folk-pop songwriting since the ‘90s. During the course of her two-decade-long career, she’s shared stages and recording studios with distinguished musical peers such as Joan Baez, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Jill Sobule, and Loudon Wainwright III. Along the way she’s released 10 albums and authored four books, including her latest, What I Found in a Thousand Towns: A Traveling Musician’s Guide to Rebuilding America’s Communities.

This event is part of the Vermont Arts Council’s Vermont Arts 2018, a year-long celebration highlighting the stunning array of arts events — concerts, festivals, exhibits, and openings — that take place all across the state.

White Christmas

White Christmas @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Come celebrate Christmas in July with the Chandler Center for the Arts! Since 1999, approximately 100 youth from the region have participated each year in Chandler’s 4th of July youth musical, presenting fully-staged productions of popular Broadway musicals.

This year the Chandler musical celebrates its 20th anniversary with four performances of Irving Berlin’s classic White Christmas. Based on the beloved, timeless film and the book by David Ives and Paul Blake, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two hop a train following a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander General Waverly. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, White Christmas.

This year’s production features Chandler stage veterans Caleb Scully and Josh Huffman, both Randolph residents currently in their senior year of high school, as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis. White River sophomore Emma Farnsworth and South Royalton seventh-grader Grace Collins appear as sisters Betty and Judy Haynes.

While the four romantic leads are the focus of the movie, the stage adaptation offers many other substantial roles. Chelsea resident Hattie Byrne portrays wisecracking Martha who runs the inn in Vermont and, with the General’s granddaughter Susan, played by sixth-grader Ella Neff of Roxbury, they help Bob and Phil plan a Christmas surprise for the General, played by Randolph junior Philip Papp.

The show also features a big ensemble with plenty of show numbers such as Happy Holiday, Snow, and The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing. Chandler’s production features a teen ensemble and an elementary chorus of about 30 each. The cast is led by Kim Nowlan Hathaway as director and choreographer. This year Molly Clark takes over as music director. Tillie Quattrone and Emily Ballou return as assistant director and assistant choreographer, respectively. Molly, Tillie, and Emily are all alumnae of the program, having participated onstage as students.

Rehearsals begin after school ends, and just two and a half short weeks later this talented group presents four performances sure to delight all audiences. Tickets go on sale in mid-June and can be reserved in person or by calling the box office at 802-728-6464 weekdays between noon and 4 pm.

White Christmas is sponsored by the Lamson Howell Foundation and the Tikkun Olam Foundation.

Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals.

Taking place over a 45-year period, this play movingly explores the stages of a relationship between two lesbians. In a non-linear way, the audience comes to understand how the women met, why they married, how they lived as a couple, and how their marriage came to end in divorce. The New Yorker described it as “a well-written, engaging portrayal of smart women finding themselves, and each other.” Written by Tanya Barfield, directed by Kim Ward.
