Holidays at the Highland Center for the Arts

Since its official opening in the summer of 2017, the Highland Center for the Arts has become Greensboro’s own Globe Theatre. Well on its way into the history books, the aptly named “Highland Center” is what it set out to become: a community hub created around the region’s vibrant arts scene. Nearby, you’ll find other cultural attractions like the Bread and Puppet Theater, Circus Smirkus, Vermont Vaudeville, and the Craftsbury Chamber Players. The inclusive ethos of the
Highland only becomes more apparent (and more enjoyable) as the holidays roll in in the Northeast Kingdom. Visit the Highland Center’s gallery for the exhibit “Robert Mallory Klein: The Character of the Kingdom” which displays the paintings completed in the early 1990s of the Northeast Kingdom’s most ordinary scenes in bold, evocative strokes and color. The paintings are some of the region’s regular sights and scenes: farmhouses, barns, churches, and rich, autumn colors in view from across a meadow. However humble the paintings’ subjects may be, the paintings have captured the essence of the people who lived here and the places that have changed with the times, no longer existing, or perhaps may still be there, untouched since Klein’s observations. The exhibit will be on display through December 22, 2019. For more information on “Robert Mallory Klein: The Character of the Kingdom,” visit the Highland Center for the Arts website. The Highland Center for the Arts partners with Ballet Wolcott this December for the beloved
holiday ballet, the Nutcracker. Directed by Artistic Director Brandy Ofciarcik-Perez, Ballet Wolcott’s Youth Company are joined by members of the community to dance in stunning sets and costumes created by local designers. The Nutcracker will be performed on Saturday, December 7th and Sunday, the 8th. Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door. Visit the website for more information.
