Several dozen Ukrainians who have escaped the war from towns like Bucha and Zaporizia have found refuge at Mercy House in Derby, Vermont. Many of those staying at Mercy House are children.

The Ukrainian students will be joined with students from the Hazen Union High School Choir with other Northeast Kingdom high school choirs. The Dzvinochok Boys Choir and the Vognyk girls Choir will be joining them from Kyiv, Ukraine via the big screen on the Main Stage. The students will be joined by famed folk singer Dave Mallett and his bass player, Mike Burd. All proceeds from the concert will go to help Ukrainians who have escaped the war and who are now staying in Vermont. This concert is being underwritten by Community National Bank, whose generosity is greatly appreciated with special thanks to Kathy and Jared Cadwell.



If you're not able to attend the concert, please make a donation on the ticket page. Masks are required for indoor events. We strongly suggest that patrons wear surgical paper masks (which we can provide) or N95 masks and not cloth masks.

Little Women, The Broadway Musical

Date: Sunday, December 18, 2022
Time: 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested. Her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America. Produced nationally and internationally, Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in a glorious musical exploring personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love, giving the audience a theatrical experience filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirit.



The Cast - Jo March: Alexandra Dick, Marmee March: Taryn Noelle, Beth March: Danielle Carrier, Meg March: Federica Velutini-Hoffmann, Amy March: Anna Quinn, Laurie: Colin Netzley, Professor Bhaer: Ron St. John III, Aunt March: Robyn Greenstone, Mr. John Brooke: Marc Lamontagne, Mr. Laurence: Douglas McGown, Mrs. Kirk: Rosann Hickey.
