— Young rockers will again fill Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater and take the stage for a free concert Friday, Feb, 22, at 7 p.m. Rock-it Science, formerly called the School of Rock and Roll, will move into THT during the week of Feb. 18.

According to Education Director Lindsay Pontius, “Every available space is packed with musicians writing songs or practicing covers. The building literally throbs with excitement all week long.”

The faculty includes Clint Bierman of the Grift, and other local musicians, including Peter Day, Russ Lawton, and Jer Coons. The adult rockers share the stage with the young rockers on the last night of camp for a blow-out jam concert.

Student performers include rock school veterans Josh Burnett-Breen, Jacob Klemmer, Ethan Nerney, Will Ross, Micah Rubin, Oziah Wales, and Jack Waterman. They will be joined by Simon and Tobias Broucke and Sadie Newman.

The Feb. 22 concert is free, but donations are accepted to further the work of the THT Education Program.

For more information about THT education, contact education@townhalltheater.org. Concert tickets are available at the door.
