Special Olympics Vermont, Winter Games @ Woodstock Inn & Resort
Mar 6 – Mar 8 all-day

March 6-8, 2015
The Woodstock Inn and Resort and Suicide Six Ski Resort

Special Olympics Vermont’s Winter Games is truly a highlight among our 14 competitions. This annual three-day competition takes place in historic Woodstock, Vermont where hundreds of members from the community join together to make the experience ever-lasting for all involved. At our Winter Games we offer four winter sports for our athletes to compete in:

Snowboarding
Snowshoeing
Alpine Skiing
Cross-Country Skiing

The competition kicks off on Friday with our School Unified Sports snowshoeing competition. On Friday night at 7:00 pm at the Woodstock Town Green we hold our official Opening Ceremonies. We announce each delegation that will be competing and will hear a few words from Governor Peter Shumlin. Our athletes then head to The Woodstock Inn and Resort to get some much needed shut-eye for Saturday and Sunday’s competition.

Volunteer Opportunities are available!
Thanks to these community partners for supporting the Winter Games!

VT ACTOR’S REP PRODUCTION

…when I watch Gurney at his best, as he is here, I laugh through the tears
— The New York Daily News

Two seasons ago you enjoyed VART’s production of Gurney’s The Dining Room. This time he focuses on a playwright (John) who revisits a Gurney-like upper-class Buffalo family with a play he has written that threatens to blow the whistle on their lives. The family sees this as something of a bomb shell. Meanwhile the unread play sits on the coffee table like laundry waiting to be aired. The play is deliciously funny and always moving.

Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal.

Mar 8 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Script Club is a class for actors and amateurs who are theater lovers and would like the social experience of group reading. Open to anyone!
ages: Adults and 16+

A Sunday afternoon, a glass of wine, a few snacks, a fantastic piece of playwriting, and a group of avid play readers who like to have fun! What could be better? Script Club is a class for actors and amateurs who are theater lovers and would like the social experience of group reading. The class is open to anyone. Previous play reading experience is NOT required. Our classes will take place in our beautiful Performance Hall (ArtisTree, South Pomfret) . This is an informal read, in an accepting environment. Typically the class will involve social time to get to know each other, reading of the play, discussion of the play, possibly viewing a movie of the play when a good movie version of the play is available. Members meet to read plays once a month. We select the next play reading from a list submitted by members. Roles are assigned at each reading and no acting experience is necessary. Discussion, community and refreshments are a part of each reading and we will provide each member a script.

Our first reading is A.R. Gurney’s smart, delightful, and moving play LOVE LETTERS. Come prepared to be funny, be dramatic, and have fun.
