Guide to Arts & Events in the Upper Valley

Welcome to our website, the companion internet site for The Complete Hoot, our monthly newspaper; and Twilight Players, youth Shakespeare and classical theater productions. 

    About The Complete Hoot:
      Published on the first Friday of each month, the 11 yearly issues (February to December) provide the most thorough coverage and calendar on the arts and events in our region.  In the previews and reviews, you'll find info on theater, art, music, dance, literature and media. Each issue features commentaries, profiles of artists or musicians, and thought-provoking articles.  We have a special section in the calendar that focuses on youth and family events and information. New in 2014, Bill Dollard has a series on recipes--this from our man who was a good friend of James Beard! In our travel section, you'll find reviews and info on interesting and exciting events elsewhere.
    With this free publication, we cover the Upper Valley, from Hanover, NH, to Windsor, VT, from Woodstock, VT, to Enfield, NH.The paper is distributed through B & B's, inns, fine restaurants, grocery co-ops and arts organizations.

                           It's Time for the 
           Annual Owl Awards in the Arts!

   The votes are all in and counted!  We'll have dinner from Coventry Catering, Big Fatty's and King Arthur Flour, and then the awards!  Every organization also has a chance to speak a bit about what they've got going for the upcoming year. 
   The Owl Awards Dinner is Sunday, September 20th, 4-6 pm at VINS Nature Center, Rte 4, Quechee, VT.  The cost is $35 per person. This year the VINS tent is by the upper parking lot...and watch where you walk: the turtles have been particularly prolific this year, and there are babies the size of silver dollars all over the place, including on the paths.
    We will, of course, have an owl-on-glove to great you, and the VINS exhibits will be open for us.
