Old Time Music Jam
7:00 PM





The concert will begin as Vicki Moore and Joe Godwin share some of their favorite Appalachian, country, gospel and original songs. Vicki plays mountain dulcimer and has performed with her daughters (some may remember "HomeSpun" when they were part of St. Johnsbury's 1st Night event). Joe has been playing guitar and writing songs for many years. Their vocals and instrumentals combine nicely to make heartfelt music that warms the soul and can get your feet to tapping. A "back porch style" jam will follow in which all types of folk instruments are welcomed. Musicians will gather in a circle and take turns choosing their favorite tune. Bring your instrument or just come to listen and make new friends!

Adult Dinner & Comedy Show
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM





Enjoy a fine dining experience and laugh the night away with comedian Tom Briscoe and the Sauce-N-Cheese comedy duo. The dinner buffet will start at 7:00 pm with the first act beginning at 9:00 pm.

$55.00 / PERSON OR $99.00 / COUPLE


New York Based Comedian Tom Briscoe is ticked off and he's not gonna take it anymore...unless he has to get up from his couch and do something about it. While enjoying the hilarious comedy of Tom Briscoe you will learn about his everyday escapes as a working husband and dad who spends his days on the road headlining comedy clubs all across the U.S. Tom Briscoe is the "everyman" that everyone can easily relate to as he presents his hilariously apathetic views on the trials and tribulations of marriage, going to church, and the absurdities of everyday family life.

Best known as the guitarist and drummer from the hysterical World Gone Crazy Comedy Band, Joe Long and Gary Marino began performing as a duo in 2014 as "Sauce-n-Cheese", hosting comedy shows, fundraisers and resort shows. Which one is Sauce and which one is Cheese? They'll never tell! But they do preform popular song parodies and impressions from the side splitting World Gone Crazy Show as well as stand up, fake commercials and audience interactive trivia and fun!

The Taming of the Shrew Bolshoi Ballet





Tickets: Adults - $18, Members - $15, Students - $6

Estimated Runtime: 2 hours and 40 minutes (160 minutes)

Music: Dmitri Shostakovich

Choreography: Jean-Christophe Maillot

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and docile Bianca, including Luciento. However her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew Katharina, is herself married. French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, nonstop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way. This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else!

This is an on-screen event.
