Waterford’s Old Town Hall abuzz with activity
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.
