Next Stage Arts Project invites the community to a free, virtual New Year’s Eve celebration on December 31, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. featuring performances from a variety of local musicians, puppeteers, poets, storytellers, business owners, and visual artists.
“It’s cold, COVID is on the rise, and everyone is prepared for this to be a long, lonely winter. Next Stage wants to be so much more than just a nice place to see a concert,” says Keith Marks, executive director at Next Stage. “We have a unique opportunity to serve through bringing us together. We wanted to ring in 2021 as a united community, even if it means virtually.”
The event begins at 6:00 p.m. with a virtual dinner hour. The first hour of the party will allow community members to “mingle” virtually. A lineup of local performers will provide entertainment from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Guests will be connected with each other and performers via zoom for an interactive and intimate holiday celebration.
Local performers include The Stockwell Brothers, Sunny Lowdown, Bad Galaxy, Peter “Fish” Case, Chard deNiord, Eric Bass, Margaret Shipman, and more.
