On Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th, Bennington Players, in association with the Friends of the Bennington Battlefield, will present “Voices of the Fallen,” with performances at 4:00 and 7:00 pm at the Bennington Theater, 331 Main Street in Bennington VT.

“Voices of the Fallen” is a theatrical experience grounded in historical research. Historically dressed actors will vividly bring to life people from both sides of the conflict who lost their lives at the Battle of
Bennington, giving voice to those who did not live to tell their stories.

Among these are the Mohawk leader of the Native contingent that joined the British on their ill-fated raid on Bennington (played by Mohawk actor Steven Thompson.) Other characters include various Patriot Militiamen, including one of the earliest Bennington settlers, the leaders of the German and Loyalist forces in the Battle, a Black private in Warner’s Green Mountain Boys, and a Brunswick lieutenant who was among the last to fall.

The production is directed by Ingrid Madelayne, and written by Phil Holland, Ingrid Madelayne, and Peter Schaaphok, with original music by Darrell Holovach.

The hour-long program will be presented at the Bennington Theater on 331 Main Street. Tickets are $15, and are available at www.BenningtonTheater.org
