Vermont Vaudeville [SIV464]
10/22/16: The rainy weather didn’t deter a large crowd from filling the Hardwick Town House Saturday night to enjoy an evening with their hometown favorites, Vermont Vaudeville. Created by four Vermonters in 2009, the troupe delights audiences with an eclectic mix of circus, comedy and music performances. You can catch Vermont Vaudeville in January, when they will be performing in Barton and Stowe.
Thank you to our cast and crew, our team of volunteers, food sponsors (Greensboro Nursing Home & Craftsbury General Store), and of course our raucous audience for another fantastic weekend at the Hardwick Town House.
Entertainer, comedic artist, actor, producer, writer, musician, master of duct tape…and the Logger of course! Rusty does it all and keeps his fans and audiences laughing, as he puts it, “till their backs get better.” Rusty grew up in Stowe, Vermont where he was actively involved in theatre throughout high school and college. As a young adult, he performed with the award winning Vermont Repertory Theatre, before moving to New York City where he trained at the George Loris Actors Theatre School and the Lee Strasberg Institute. This professional training was followed by scores of notable roles off-Broadway, and in television, film, and national commercials. Missing his home state, Rusty moved back to Vermont where he continued his acting career and developed the Logger character. An eclectic and innovative act, THE LOGGER one-man comedy show is best described as “Blue Collar Comedy” meets “Prairie Home Companion”, and has been steadily selling out theatres, large and small, throughout New England ever since it hit the stage in 1998. Rusty also writes, voices, directs, and produces radio and television spots for various companies throughout New England, and has always, throughout his career, donated his time to promote positive lifestyle choices among high school age kids. thelogger.com
Since 1981 David Aiken has performed as ‘The Checkerboard Guy,’ a Comic Daredevil who’s manic energy, zany sense of humour and robust skill set have been his passport to the globe! His award-winning comedic variety show has been compared to Steve Martin, Pee Wee Herman and even a live action version of The Simpsons. Bottom line–his infectious energy and crazy stunts will leave you rolling in the aisles! http://thecheckerboardguy.com
Ballet Wolcott began in the fall of 2007 as a collaboration between Helene Nilsen, Brandy Ofciarcik-Perez, and Avi Waring. All three wanted to offer affordable, high quality dance education in the rural setting of Wolcott. The primary aim of Ballet Wolcott is to foster healthy development and creativity in our students by providing them with quality dance education and the opportunity to become involved in the creative process in a nurturing environment. Through the Youth Company, Ballet Wolcott continues to offer creativity and community through dance. This year, Ballet Wolcott has become a non-profit organization, making it possible for us to offer more to our communities. www.balletwolcott.com
