No mat­ter the sea­son or the weather, Water­ford’s Old Town Hall is al­ways abuzz with ac­tiv­ity.

At present, mem­bers of the Town Hall Kids fall pro­gram are pre­par­ing for their pre­sen­ta­tion this month of Trea­sure Is­land.

The chil­dren meet weekly un­der the guid­ance of Nikki Campbell-Schram and her team. They learn about theatre and play pro­duc­tion from start to fin­ish.

Trea­sure Is­land will be pre­sented from Dec. 13 to 15. Show time is 7 o’clock each night. Pro­ceeds will go to help cover some of costs to keep the Town Hall Kids run­ning.

Town Hall Kids will go into their 14th sea­son in Jan­uary. The pro­duc­tion will be The Lion King.

Times and dates for the classes will be posted on Old Town Hall’s web­site — www. old­town­hall.org.

Town Hall of­fers a va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment events for all to en­joy.

Pub Nights are usu­ally held on the Fri­day the “teenth” of ev­ery month. The next one, how­ever, will be held on Dec. 8. from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. due to the Town Hall Kids pro­duc­tion the fol­low­ing week­end. Be­sides yummy food, Pub Nights fea­ture the prod­ucts of lo­cal brew­eries and per­for­mances by lo­cal mu­si­cian Ian Bell.

In Jan­uary, Old Town Hall is play­ing host to The Sheep­dogs, the plat­inum-sell­ing Cana­dian rockers who have been fea­tured on the cover of Rolling Stone mag­a­zine.

The 225 tick­ets to the show on Jan. 16 sold out within min­utes and cre­ated a wait­ing list of hun­dreds.

Check the hall’s web­site fre­quently for up­dates on events and con­certs.

One of the new­est events is a drop-in draw­ing class of­fered by artist Kathy Hogg on Wed­nes­days from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. un­til Dec. 19. The cost is $20 a ses­sion.

And don’t for­get to check out the book store op­er­at­ing ev­ery Satur­day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
