JAG to host benefit dinner party with performances, Southern home cooking by ‘mom’

Saturday, Nov 17, 6:30 p.m.—WHITE RIVER JUNCTION—Join JAG Productions at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17 for JAG Juke Joint, a benefit dinner party with a feast of luminous performances by JAG artists and Southern home cooking prepared by JAG Founder Jarvis Antonio Green’s mom. Cocktails and dinner begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Newberry Market and performances begin at 7:30 p.m. at Briggs Opera House, both in White River Junction.

The menu includes: Southern fried chicken or Southern baked chicken marinated with herbs; three-cheese baked macaroni; potato salad with sweet pickle and garlic; Southern style collard greens with pork (vegetarian option available); pecan and coconut sweet potato soufflé; and cornbread.

Since its creation in 2015, JAG Productions focuses on creating theater to engage challenging issues of race, gender, sexuality and identity. The organization was founded by Jarvis Antonio Green and exists to produce classic and contemporary African-American theatre; to serve as an incubator of new work that excites broad intellectual engagement; and thereby, to catalyze compassion, empathy, love and community through shared understandings of humankind.

The experience will be a gem of the Upper Valley, a chance to learn about the organization, meet its newly founded board of directors, celebrate the importance of this work in our current historical moment, and contribute to what is to come.

Tickets can be purchased at jagproductionsvt.com or by calling 802-332-3270.
