Vermont's Historic Theater Curtains

Vermont's Historic Theater Curtains

Between 1880 and World War II, painted theater curtains were artistic features of most New England villages and towns. In Vermont, painted curtains graced stages in town and grange halls, opera houses, and community theaters. A culture of local variety shows and traveling, professional talent flourished in front of those curtains in some very remote Vermont communities.

In a tour of some of the 177 curtains in Vermont, Christine Hadsel, director of Curtains Without Borders, provides a glimpse into the world of talented and often sophisticated artists who were part of the rural cultural scene, illustrating the rich cultural history of small-town Vermont before World War I.

About the presenter:

Christine is the Project Director for the Curtains Without Borders conservation project and was the first Executive Director of the Vermont Museum and Gallery Alliance.

This event is sponsored by the Cambridge Arts Council and the Varnum Memorial Library and is brought to you by the Vermont Humanities Council.

Vermont's Small Boat Traditions

From Skiffs to Sail Ferries: The Story of Vermont’s Small Boat Traditions

The stories of Vermont naval history and commercial shipping have been well documented by generations of historians. However, the traditions of small boat building from throughout our state have remained untold. The bulk of our historic boatbuilding traditions involves Vermonters building their own boats, whether for pleasure or commercial use. The historical record illuminating this subject resides today mostly in family stories and photo collections.

In this slide presentation, Douglas Brooks shares his research on these traditions, and his work in recreating some of these historic vessels.

About the presenter:

Douglas Brooks - A boat builder, writer, and researcher, Douglas specializes in the construction of traditional wooden boats for museums and private clients.

Hosted by the Cambridge Arts Council and the Varnum Memorial Library.

STEM Knitting

Join us for STEM Knitting at the Varnum Memorial Library! During this 8-week workshop, children who are in grades 4-10 will explore and learn the ancient art of knitting through algebra, geometry, chemistry, engineering, and coding, among other "STEM" related topics. Research has shown that learning handwork skills, such as knitting, can increase focus and concentration. At the end of the 8-week session, each child will have created a wearable hat and a "mug rug" (coaster), while hopefully gaining insight into the many connections between knitting and math/science. All supplies will be provided and this workshop is free of charge. High-quality yarn has been donated to this program by Legacy Fiber Artz, an independent yarn dying company out of Essex Junct. https://legacyfiberartz.com/ . We are gladly welcoming more donations; particularly knitting needles. 

The Workshop will be held on Wednesdays from 5-6:30 p.m. and will run from October 10 until Dec 12 (with Halloween and the day before Thanksgiving off). Each lesson will build on the next, so commitment is important in order to come away with a completed hat and a full skill set.

Registration is required and space is limited, so please call 644-2117 to register your child as soon as possible. 

If you have signed up and no longer think your child can attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can consult our wait list.

The history of what and how we eat encompasses everything from the prehistoric mammoth luau to the medieval banquet to the modern three squares a day.

What’s the story of chocolate? Why do the Irish eat corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day? Who invented lemonade? Why are turkeys called turkeys? And what are sugarplums anyway?

The Legacy of Mime Marcel Marceau

Twentieth century mime master Marcel Marceau advanced the art of the ancient Greco-Roman mime storytellers, the improvisational actors of the Commedia dell’Arte, and the pantomime of Charlie Chaplin. in this presentation, Circus Smirkus founder Rob Mermin will explore the metaphors of mime technique—what Marceau called “the silent language of the soul”—and discuss Marceau’s particular influence on the world’s cultural history.

Marceau’s unique life story encompasses not only his virtuosity on stage, but also his work in the French Resistance saving Jewish children during WWII. Rob will show film clips of Marceau’s speech accepting the Raul Wallenberg Humanitarian Award in 2001.


Rob Mermin ran off to Europe to join the circus in 1969. That year he also began his training in Paris with mime masters Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux. He has a degree in Drama and Literature from Lake Forest College. He lives in Montpelier, where he teaches weekly PD Mime classes.

Rob has lectured in universities around the country, performed in TV and film in Scandinavia, and directed theater and circus worldwide. He is former Dean of Clown College for Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus, President of Blackfriars Summer Theater, and Founder, in 1987, of the award-winning international touring company Circus Smirkus.

Rob’s awards include Copenhagen’s World Star-Time Gold Clown; Vermont’s Bessie Award; Russia’s Best Director Prize at The International Festival on the Black sea; The Lund Center’s It Takes A Village Award; the Vermont Arts Council Award of Merit, and the 2008 Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.

Drag Queen Story Hour

Drag Queen Story Hour

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids joyful, glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.

Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne, two of Vermont's favorite drag queens, are coming back to Winooski for another Drag Queen Story Hour that will be sure to delight and captivate audience members of all ages as they share stories focused on individuality, activism, gender, creativity, expression, and social responsibility.

DQSH was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco. DQSH events occur regularly in SF, NY, and LA. For more information on DQSH, visit DragQueenStoryHour.org. To watch episodes of The T or to learn more about Emoji & Nikki, visit NightPagne.com.
