Those interested in an Adult Acting Class, whether young or old, experienced or newly interested, can join Oldcastle Theatre Company’s Acting 101 taught by veteran actress, improvisational artist, director and teacher, Christine Decker.

“These classes will show how to create characters, develop tricks for memorization and use improvisation to expand the imagination in a safe and fun environment. I’m eager to work with people of all levels of theatre experience as we can all learn and teach through our own life experience. Come and play, we’ll have a great time.” – Christine Decker




Actors Express

Every year Oldcastle’s Actors Express tours elementary schools in Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts with an original play for children. The Bank of Bennington has been helpful in making it possible for us to keep the cost to schools very low.

We work with teachers, principals, parents, and children to create shows that are relevant and entertaining for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. We have dealt with topics such as bullying, the environment, the importance of reading, the dangers of smoking, the joys of friendship, and children’s love of animals. Our shows teach valuable lessons while introducing children to the magic of live theatre. New to Oldcastle’s Actors’ Express are Saturday morning shows at the theatre in downtown Bennington. These shows are family friendly and also promote positive messages for kids to walk away with.

 The production on stage at Oldcastle Theatre in Bennington, Vermont lays it all out on the table for us. We are free, in director Eric Peterson’s vision, to decide for ourselves who is right and who is wrong and who we would support in a struggle of this sort: priest, nun, mother or novice.
