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.

No “Doubt about it at Oldcastle: “The point, of course, is that in the halls of irony, life imitates art, and so the answers we are left with seem both unsettling, and unsettled. That is the brilliance of Shanley’s modern classic, and all the more reason why no one should doubt that the journey to Oldcastle for this play – and these actors -is well worth it.”
