Putney Vaudeville!

Putney, VT – Next Stage Arts Project, in collaboration with Strong Coffee Stage, is pleased to present PUTNEY VAUDEVILLE on Friday, May 24, 2013, at 7:30pm at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill, Putney, VT. General Admission tickets are $12 / $6 for children under 12, and are available at www.nextstagearts.org and Offerings in Putney. For more information, contact Next Stage Arts at (802) 387-0102 or nextstagearts@gmail.com.

PUTNEY VAUDEVILLE is the creation of Rebecca Waxman, Bronwyn Sims, Patrick Donnelly and Peter Siegel who hope to launch an ongoing showcase for old time entertainment and community talent. The night will include a stellar professional act, a rousing live band, assorted friends and neighbors displaying skills you may never have seen, beer and wine service and good-natured audience engagement.

THE REAL McCOY will headline the night starring Brent McCoy, a wildly entertaining comic performer who combines breathtaking circus stunts with lightning fast wit for a rollicking comic experience.

The house band will be the versatile GASLIGHT TINKERS, a beloved local band as well-versed in afro-pop, funk and reggae as they are in Celtic fiddle tunes and Tin Pan Alley chestnuts.

Beer and wine will be available through JD McCliment’s Pub.

Strong Coffee Stage is a Brattleboro-based professional company dedicated to creating compelling theater for local and international audiences. Founded in 2009 by Sims and Donnelly, Strong Coffee Stage combines movement, music, virtuosity, and humor to create innovative theatrical productions. In addition to performing, the company also facilitates periodic master classes in theatrical movement, acrobatics, clown, improvisation & acting.

Next Stage Arts Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing Putney’s cultural and economic village center through the programming, development and operation of Next Stage.

Since its founding in early 2011, NSAP has hosted dozens events including classical, folk, and popular music concerts, a weekly community film series, and a spoken word series. Artists appearing have included Taylor Mali, Pulitzer Prize winning author Tim Weiner, Dr. Carol Gilligan, Jonathan Edwards, and Tony Trischka.
