Lyndon Insitute Theater Company Presents Thespis

March 3rd, 2019

*Update: March 10, 2019

A big congratulations to the Lyndon Institute Theater Company for moving on to the VT State Drama Festival as one of the top 10 schools in the state for the third time in five years!

Their performance of Thespis by Phil Darg was also awarded for Outstanding Company and received four individual Excellence in Acting awards.

Thespis will be performed for the public at Lyndon Institute on Friday, March 15th at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $5. For more information, contact [email protected].

The multi-award winning Lyndon Institute Theater Company will present Phil Darg’s one-act comedyThespis as their entry into the Vermont Drama Festival, featuring a special public performance at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15th at Alumni Auditorium at Lyndon Institute. Students in the cast and crew will also travel to Hazen Union School on Saturday, March 9th for competition in the Vermont Regional Drama Festival. Admission to the Friday public performance is $5.00 per person.

In the golden age of Athens, all is not golden. The Festival of Dionysus has become a showcase for boring, repetitive, mindless chanting. Unfortunately, none of the participants or leaders realize this. They love and cheer the annual soul-numbing celebrations to honor the god of Theater. Enter Thespis, a baker who dares to do what no man has done before - think for himself - and propose that something different might actually be entertaining. Hilarity ensues and a thespian is born.

With Artistic Direction by Lyndon Institute’s Theater Company Director, Laura Wayne, this production features the talented young actors and technicians at Lyndon Institute collaborating to bring you an evening of pure farce and a slightly twisted history on the world’s first actor.

This production is intended for a general audience. The performance is approximately 45 minutes in length. The public may also attend the Regional performance on March 9th at Hazen Union School. For more information, please contact Lyndon Institute Theater Company Director Laura Wayne at [email protected]
