The mission of Wardsboro Curtain Call is to plan, promote and produce a variety of entertainment events in Wardsboro's Town Hall for the enjoyment of Wardsboro residents, visitors and friends from neighboring towns.
Wardsboro Curtain Call (WCC) is a small volunteer group of Wardsboro residents with a great interest in bringing entertainment to Wardsboro's Town Hall. The hall is usually set up in cafe fashion for the shows. Excellent refreshments are available, and most shows are BYOB (wine, beer).
In 2016, the first year WCC began programming, three very successful shows were produced: a dance party with The MILES Band, a CD release show with Luminous Crush, and a concert with Sarah McQuaid.
Before WCC began producing shows, the group's mission was to make improvements to Wardsboro Town Hall's stage area. In 2014, with lots of fundraising and very generous donations, plus being awarded a Cultural Facilities grant from the Vermont Arts Council, WCC was able to acquire, conserve and install a set of antique hand-painted scenic backdrop curtains. The stage area was cleaned and painted, and new velvet front draperies were purchased and installed. Kevin Sabin generously donated the sanding/refinishing of the stage floor.
In 2015, WCC funded lighting improvements to the stage. In early 2016, Wardsboro's Select Board purchased new chairs and had the hall floor refinished. With all these improvements made, WCC was inspired to evolve into programming mode.
