New England Youth Theatre proudly presents an Alumni Anniversary Production of “Horse Drawn Yogurt Radio Hour”, written and directed by Peter Gould, to be performed on Friday, June, 28 at 7 pm, and Saturday, June 29 at 7 pm at NEYT, 100 Flat Street, in Brattleboro.
Peter’s Vermont memoir, “Horse Drawn Yogurt”, is a collection of true-life stories of a young man’s (his!) life on a farm commune at the height of the back-to-the-land movement. The book is a Green Writers Press original, and Peter has done more than thirty readings around the state. This newest public Horse-Drawn event will be in the form of a “popular radio program with stories and songs and call-ins,” Gould says, and will feature NEYT favorites Andrew Marchev as the show’s host, with Putnam Smith and Jonny Flood as the show’s regular weekly guests. Peter will play himself. Audience members will pretend to be a live studio audience!
On “Horse-Drawn Yogurt” radio, you’ll learn how locals and newcomers helped each other out in a pivotal moment of history, and how young people, new to the land, learned how to take care of gardens, animals, fields, and each other, while staying involved in a national movement against the Vietnam war and for peace and justice around the world. In his farming days, Peter Gould was one of the founders of the Brattleboro Farmers Market. And in his theatre days, Peter has directed forty NEYT productions. The production is a part of a summer-long celebration of NEYT’s 20th anniversary.
The play performs June 28 and 29 at 7 pm. Tickets for these performances are $6 and all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to NEYT’s “Angels in the Wings” Scholarship Fund.
Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.neyt.org, in person at the NEYT Box Office, or by phone (802) 246-6398 from 12-5pm on Wednesdays. The show plays at New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat Street in Brattleboro, Vermont.
