The high school cast and crew will offer audiences of all ages a special time filled with the spirit of the season. "A Christmas Carol" is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a selfish and bitter man who believes in making and keeping money above all else. His life takes a turn when he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come, who show him the life he has built and his unhappy future. Scrooge is shocked and afraid of what he sees, leading to an ending that will warm your heart. "A Christmas Carol" is family-friendly and admission is free.

$3,300 Grant Awarded to Mahoosuc Arts Council

The Mahoosuc Arts Council was awarded a grant for $3,300 from the New England Foundation for the Arts through the New England States Touring Program to present  the modern dance troupe Adele Myers and Dancers in January of 2011.
 
“I am interested in people dancing not dancers moving. I make theatrical narrative non-fiction dance told from a female perspective - usually with a sense of humor. These dances originate from personal experience, I then explore how that experience intersects with popular culture as part of the collective unconscious. These intersections are conveyed through a chunky non-linear collage format combining energetic robust athleticism, everyday gestures and text.
