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.

26th annual New World Festival
Sep 2 @ 12:00 pm – Sep 3 @ 12:00 am
26th annual New World Festival @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

Celebrate Vermont’s Celtic and French Canadian heritage with traditional—and sometimes not so traditional—music and dance. Each year more than 70 exceptional musicians are drawn from New England, Canada, and the British Isles. Concerts, music and dance workshops, children’s activities, and open dancing unfold on six continuous stages from noon to midnight. Food and drink provided by the area’s finest chefs and breweries. The festival takes place in downtown Randolph, Vermont in Chandler Music Hall and Gallery, in all-weather tents on both sides of Main Street, and in historic Bethany Church. Main Street is closed to traffic, and the festival site becomes an intimate pedestrian village.

It’s not too early to start making plans for this year’s festival! Imagine a line-up that includes John Doyle, Connla, Le Vent du Nord, Natalie Haas & Yann Falquet, and Night Tree! They’ll all be appearing at this year’s festival on Sunday September 2.

Irish singer/songwriter John Doyle is involved in many musical projects and partnerships and has legions of fans all over the world. We know New World Festival fans will be excited to learn that he is returning after a hiatus of several years..

One of the best bands on the traditional music scene in Québec makes their first appearance at the festival this year. Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Le Vent du Nord captures the vibrant energy of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Québec with a breath of fresh cosmopolitan air. This band lit up the Chandler stage in 2006 and we can’t wait to welcome them back.

The husband/wife duo of cellist Natalie Haas and fiddler Yann Falquet will make their festival debut. Those who have heard Natalie perform at Chandler with Alasdair Fraser know that we’re in for a treat.

The five young Irish musicians that comprise Connla wowed audiences at last year’s festival. They, in turn, said their appearance at the New World Festival was the highlight of their American tour last summer. They’ll be back!

Night Tree’s music is rooted in original works spanning from the Celtic world. The creative young members of the sextet create original music that borrows from the Swedish, Jewish and American folk traditions. This is a group that’s on the rise and we’re lucky to have them back again this year.

We’ve secured generous sponsorship support from the Byrne Foundation for the Sessions Tent. It’s sure to be the scene of some lively musical exchanges.
