BRATTLEBORO- The New England Youth Theatre’s Senior Company takes on a contemporary work, “Middletown,” by Will Eno. Inspired by, and sometimes parodying Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town,” it explores the intersecting lives of small town residents and the strange beauty of life while searching for the tiniest shred of certainty and consistency.

Director Micheal Trzos, a recent graduate of the University of Evansville Theater Department, returns to NEYT to guide the Senior Company through this rich and deeply thoughtful contemporary work about the mysteries of human existence.

Performances are: April 10 through 13, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, at 7 pm, Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm; April 18 through 19, Friday and Saturday at 7 pm, and Saturday at 2 pm.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at or at the NEYT box office in person, or by phone (802) 246-6398, from 12 to 5 pm only on Wednesdays.

The New England Youth Theatre is located at 100 Flat Street. Tickets: $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $8 for students. The show is recommended for ages 13 and up, due to adult content and language.
