Tales of Old Woodstock, a staged reading of the historic town’s first 100 years, performed Sunday

On Sunday, June 4 at 4 p.m., a locally written play about early Woostock residents will be performed by locals at North Chapel in Woodstock. 

Who was Lucy McKenzie? Why did the Baptist deacon want to reshape the fiddle? Have you heard the rumors of disinterment? Did you know Norman Williams was an engineer turned doctor turned engineer who donated funds to build the library? 

Farmer, miller, innkeeper, priest, doctor, baker, judge and deceased— hear their stories in the voices of men and women from Woodstock’s first 100 years as creatively written by local historian Kyran McGrath.

“Tales of Old Woodstock,” a staged reading of “Woodstock Anthology, Woodstock’s first 100 years,” will entertain, teach about local history, and raise some money to support North Chapel. Admission by donation. No reservations needed, but parking is limited so arrive early. 

North Chapel Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 7 Church Street in Woodstock.
