SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – The cast is set, rehearsals are going full blast and tickets are on sale for Main Street Arts’ production of Chicago, which opens Thursday, Mar. 28 at the Bellows Falls Opera House for a two-weekend run.
The cast of the Jazz-age musical set in the Windy City’s Cook County jail includes Kyla White as the imprisoned Roxie Hart and Izzy Serebrov as the smooth-talking lawyer Billy Flynn, who works for her release by making the tabloids sympathetic to her plight.

Windham County Heat Fund Fundraiser – Heating it up with the Ladies of the Rainbow
“Heating it up with the Ladies of the Rainbow” on Saturday, March 2 at 8:00 p.m. at the VFW on Black Mountain Road in Brattleboro will be this year’s major fundraiser for the Windham County Heat Fund.
In 2005 Daryl Pillsbury and Richard Davis decided to find a way to help people struggling to pay for home heating fuel who were not eligible for existing programs. They simply decided to raise money and then figure out who was in need and help those people.
Please note that tonight’s Landmark College Academic Speaker Series event with Rusty DeWees has been cancelled due to inclement weather. Rescheduling of the event TBD.
Stop by and play a game of Scrabble with us at Brooks Memorial Library 🙂 The atmosphere is pleasant and mellow, with plenty of smiling and laughing! All levels are absolutely welcome to join the fun!!

SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – On the heels of its big splash productions of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Jesus Christ Superstar and its upcoming winter production of Chicago, Main Street Arts is mining into its own creative resources closer to home to offer an original, brand-new production opening Friday, Nov. 9 for a two-weekend run.
The world premiere of Charles Henry’s Final Curtain, an old-fashioned vaudeville musical, is a celebration of the creative spirit of a Vermont native whose own creativity took him all over the state with his performing family, leaving a legacy of entertainment and painted theater curtains in at least 16 towns.
