Guilford Center Stage 2019 Season

Guilford Center Stage continues into its fifth year with spring and fall productions of plays ranging from nonsense to political satire, and having connections to Vermont, and Guilford, continuing its mission to present place-based theater on the stage at renovated Broad Brook Community Center.

“Alice” is the spring show, on the last weekend in April. The musical play, directed by Richard Epstein, is a reflection of a well-known Monteverdi Players production. The 1978 production of the familiar Lewis & John Carroll classic, which was performed on farm near Guilford Center, is condensed from the original 100-acre venue to the chamber-sized stage in the Grange hall, and will feature the musical score from the original play by composer Nicholas Humez. Evelyn McLean is vocal music director.

Trump on the Couch

In 2005, Justin Frank, M.D., a psychiatrist , wrote a book “Bush on the Couch” in which he provided keen insights into the president’s mode of thinking-or not thinking.

Commenting on “W”, Dr. Frank noted we are “dealing with a potentially cornered man [who] could lash out, and it is possible that the best way would be to bomb Iran…. Whatever the root causes of Bush’s pathology, we have a dangerous man running things…grandiose and unchecked.”
