Central Vermont Audio Theater presents

"Wild Strawberries"

Looking for a new free entertainment opportunity?

The White River Valley Players will present the first story in their Central Vermont Audio Theater fall production on Sunday, November 22 in a free streaming from 5 - 9 p.m. via Vimeo.  The short story, Wild Strawberries, was written and is read by Erica B. Robinson, and is enhanced by music created and played by Jake Wildwood.  Wild Strawberries is a family-friendly story about a child's memories of life with her magical grandparents.  This is the first of three stories in the audio production, each story between 10 and 20 minutes long.

Wild Strawberries will be followed by The Intelligent Lightbulbs on Sunday, November 29 and The King Who Wanted More on December 6, both streaming on Vimeo from 5 - 9 pm.

Because of Covid-19 the Players have not held any "live" performances this year, and are excited to be creating another Players' original concept in programming.  They've had the expertise of Jake Wildwood as recording engineer and editor, and have been given the use of Spice Studio as a recording studio, courtesy of Ethan Bowen.  The Players encourage listeners of all ages to tune in to these stories beginning on Sunday, November 22 via Vimeo, with a free streaming from 5 - 9 pm--sure to be an antidote to the current news cycle and evenings that get dark way too early.

We are a community theater group, run by volunteers.

Over the years we’ve done a huge range of shows, everything from Broadway musicals to Brecht. We’ve done full-length plays and evenings of original one-acts and produced events that focus on community building and performance such as our annual Harvest Fair (a fall fair on our town green, with a full day of live entertainment, arts and crafts, food, a flower show, children’s activities, and a lot more) which has been a tradition on the first weekend after Labor Day since 1987.

One of our goals is to share our love of theater

We invite you to see one of our shows, attend one of our events, or join us on-stage or off to experience the magic of community theater.
