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.

Gail M. Burns: This is a most satisfying play theatrically and emotionally. This is a play about healing, which can be an agonizingly slow and uneventful process in real life, but which Herzog crafts into a suspenseful narrative with characters we really come to care about. Peterson has assembled a top-notch cast…There is no better theatre for the money available now in the region. Fans of Herzog…


Larry: …and first class theatre…


Gail: …should not miss this opportunity!
