Northern Star Lake Cruises and QNEK Theater have teamed together to offer Newport's first ever Summer Dinner Theater series.

Donning sweater vests and each armed with a razor-sharp wit, Paul and Robbie Rsecigno star in a comedy show that hearkens back to an old-shcool vaudeville act with contemporary material and brand-spanking new music. If "old-school" feels redundant, we only need to remind you:  they are twins.  Redundancy is what they do best.  Tickets are available at the Northern Star shoreside ticketing office at Newport's Gateway Center.  Adults: $49 plus tax.

Location:  Newport Gateway Center, 84 Fyfe Drive, Newport, VT.

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos. This is an on-screen event.

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris.

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos. This is an on-screen event.
