"VTHM's role will be to introduce audiences to the Holocaust survival stories of a few of their Vermont neighbors, and to provide information on how this horrible episode in history can teach us about the absolute need for tolerance, understanding for those not like ourselves, and support for refugees," said Debora Steinerman and Miriam Rosenbloom, cofounders of VTHM. "Our organization is gratified for the invitation to offer an educational dimension to these iconic and meaningful productions." VTHM exhibits will be available for audience view one hour prior to each performance, as well as during intermissions and after each show.
"CABARET," a widely praised dance and musical production, takes place in a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920's draw to a close; the story explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin's natives and expats as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. The Lost Nation Theater production is directed by Tim Tavcar, with choreography by Taryn Noelle. The Tony-award winning production was written by Kander & Ebb. Time Out described the play as "One of the great Broadway musicals of all time-an exhilarating, harrowing masterpiece." Show times, ticket sales and additional information on "CABARET" can be found at

"The Diary of Anne Frank" in Stowe is based on the true story of a young Jewish girl who kept a diary of her time hiding from the Nazis in a hidden attic behind her father's office in Amsterdam during World War II. It is at once a heartwarming and tragic tale of family, growing up, and life in a time of terrible odds. The Stowe Theater Guild production stars Cate Stuart, Adam Silverman, Cynthia Seckler and Evie Caserta; and was directed by Scott Weigand.
