Upcoming NEYT Shows



On October 7, 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard’s death became a national symbol of intolerance, but for the people of the town, the event was deeply personal. In the aftermath, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie and conducted more than 200 interviews with its citizens. From the transcripts, the playwrights constructed an extraordinary chronicle of life in the town after the murder:  The Laramie Project, a modern classic which has become one of the most-performed theater pieces in America.

In The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later, the troupe revisits the town a decade after the tragedy, finding a community grappling with its legacy and its place in history. The two plays together comprise an epic and deeply moving theatrical cycle that explores the life of an American town over the course of a decade.

During the past two performing seasons, the Theatre Adventure Thursday Troupe has successfully brought to the stage Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The actors’ enthusiasm for Shakespeare is unbridled! The outrageous storylines with complicated relationships and plot twists of Shakespeare’s stories remain alive and well on the Theatre Adventure stage with Twelfth Night this coming April 11, 12, and 13.


Gender fluidity, love triangles, sibling loyalty, and dreams of breaking class barriers are the “food for fodder” in this much beloved comedy.


Outstanding performances by all of the actors in stunning costumes will create a theatrical production that highlights the strengths and talents of the dedicated Theatre Adventure actors.


People of all abilities are welcome in the audiences of all Theatre Adventure performances. ASL interpreting is provided for all performances and the venue is wheel chair accessible.


In order to honor audience members with special sensory needs, there will be a Sensory-Friendly performance on Wednesday April 11 at 10:30 am, where expressions and needs are welcomed as an intrinsic part of being an audience member. Before the show begins, the Director will talk about the lights, sounds, costumes, and characters of the play in order to support the comfort level of audience members. There will be a break room across from the performance hall for students who might need quiet space during part of the performance. A social story to help prepare audience members for the theater experience is available upon request anytime before the performance.


Come join us. Inclusive theatre is alive and well in Southern Vermont!

NEYT’s Theatre Adventure presents: QUESTERY

Wednesday, May 16 (Sensory-Friendly) at 10:30 am

Thursday, May 17 at 10:30 am

Friday, May 18 at 10:30 am


Once upon a time, a young lad with autism dreamed of being an author, a playwright, and a director.  He wrote many original stories and was encouraged by many to pursue his dreams, because at Theatre Adventure, “Pursuing one’s dreams is the stuff of life!”  

As a young man, he wrote an adventure tale told with an eclectic group of animal characters.  This published legend was set in times of yore, and now, the Theatre Adventure Wednesday Troupe is bringing this fantastic story of an aspiring playwright, Questery, to the stage this coming May 16, 17, and 18.


Many of the Questery characters join together on a quest to rescue a character that has been kidnapped.  They are also on a mission to destroy the villainous captor, Turkator. Along the way, the troupe meets many unusual characters--some whimsical, others scary, some who are brave, and others who are quite humorous. Original songs are woven throughout the journey—an expedition that challenges the wit and quick thinking of the clan.

In order to honor audience members with special sensory needs, there will be a Sensory-Friendly performance on Wednesday May 16 at 10:30 am, where expressions and needs are welcomed as an intrinsic part of being an audience member.
