Noel: A Celtic Christmas
An Elegant Evening of Music & Poetry
Enjoy a quartet of harps, flute and cello serenading with Celtic Christmas music interspersed with dramatic poetry readings. Slow down, pause, and remind yourself of what this season is truly about. Put aside your cares and worries and enjoy this heartfelt tribute to the season.
Ending off Ellensburg's Moments to Remember celebration, this one-hour Christmas themed show features music and poetry performed by local Washington musicians and actors. It's the perfect event to invite friends and family who are visiting for Thanksgiving weekend. Shop local on Plaid Friday, see the tree lighting ceremony and the dance performances downtown and then walk over to Hotel Windrow, get a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy a show for the whole family.
Arranged by Jill Whitman, and Directed by Hal Ott, much of the show’s content is inspired by classic Christmas selections with a Celtic flair. Ott’s vision and hope are that “‘Noel: A Celtic Christmas’ and its traditional Christmas music and poetry, will transport you to a wonderful place of joy and merrymaking, of mirth and contemplation.”
When: Friday November 25 & Saturday November 26, 6:30 - 7:30 PM

Cost: $10 Adults, $5 Children

Help behind the scenes on our 2023 productions. Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes, and what goes on behind the scenes can make or break a theatrical production!
This is a great opportunity to learn how to build sets for the theatre, durable, but portable, and sometimes purposefully breakable! You get to use tools, paint and work with your hands. Get training and then apply those skills for VMT's winter production of The Play That Goes Wrong.....where the set itself is sometimes considered an additional actor because it has pieces that fall down at specific times.
When: Saturday, December 17th
Where: Kathleen Beach's Set Barn
Cost: FREE! But we do need you to RSVP!
The One-Act Play That Goes Wrong
The Play That Goes Wrong begins before the curtain has even been raised, as the audience are present while the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society prepare to stage their new production – the 1920s murder mystery 'Murder at Haversham Manor.' However the set is not yet complete and there is no time to finish it off…..the show must go on! With a murder (and a moving corpse) established from the beginning, the murder mystery gets into full flow. However, the props start to disappear, actors go missing and the set begins to collapse around, and often on, the cast. Mayhem ensues, the acting gets worse, and the set becomes increasingly dangerous, but the company struggles on regardless. The question is whether any of the cast and crew will remain standing, or conscious, by the final curtain?!
