Community Theatre on Tannery Pond in Wilmot


 Join members of your Kearsarge community for great fun in creating a performance based on an adaptation of a children’s book which really isn’t a children’s book, Old Turtle and the Broken Truth, by Douglas Wood. We’ll be building masks and making costumes…making music… and getting to know and become our characters… lots of animals, some people and some other characters from nature! 

 This is a multi-generational effort ~ young people, (6 and up), singles and couples, groups, parents, and grandparents. We will meet Wednesday evenings, starting July 17th,  from 6:15 – 7:30 pm at the Wilmot Community Center (across from the post office).  The performance will be on August 24th.

Caroline Fairless says “There is more at stake, though, than a one or two night production. Those willing to adopt animal roles (or the roles of wind, tree, mountain, or water) have an assignment beyond the making of mask and costume and showing up at a couple dress rehearsals. We are asking people to come to know the character(s) they’ve chosen. Why did you choose, say, a porcupine? How does a porcupine move? What does s/he eat? What habitat does a porcupine require? Who are his enemies? How are humans participating in making life challenging for a porcupine. What is the gift that a porcupine offers the biotic community?

    here's what I want to tell you. It's not just this coming Wednesday, but several in a row. BUT . . . if Wednesday's don't work for you, we will build character design and development around your schedule. We are looking for 8 characters (if you could find a copy of Old Turtle and the Broken Truth, that would be helpful.) What I am trying to say is that characters can be built at home. The rehearsals begin August 21st, and if you can be with us on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, all will be well. The production itself is scheduled for August 24th, rain date the next day. Call me (Caroline) or Jim at[masked]
