Winter (Solstice) Is Coming…

Town Hall Theater readies for the shortest day of the year with a series of fun, interactive classes based on the theme A Child’s Solstice in the Shire (inspired by Dylan Thomas) which will culminate in a ‘Solstice Pageant’ on Wednesday, December 21st at 4:00pm.

Flowing from the Town Hall Theater grounds to the Middlebury Town Green, performers invite spectators to bring their own lanterns and noise makers to add to the light and merrymaking!
