    'Frederick Douglass Now'

    Tools

    Thu., Sept. 27, 7 p.m. and Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m.

    Born more than 100 years ago, orator, writer, thinker and abolitionist Frederick Douglass presented powerful ideas on race, gender equality and personal freedom. Actor Roger Guenveur Smith draws on Douglass’ words for his hard-hitting show Frederick Douglass Now. In this striking solo piece, the thespian seen in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing combines original text, spoken-word poetry and music to illuminate the state of race in the United States. Known for his examinations of historical figures, Smith has previously developed and performed works inspired by Black Panther Party cofounder Huey P. Newton and police-brutality victim Rodney King. at Moore Theater, Hopkins Center for the Arts, Dartmouth College in Hanover. Outside Vermont (map). $19-35.

    'The Fantasticks'

    Tools

    Through Sept. 28, 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Sept. 29, 3 & 7:30 p.m.

    With 17,162 Off Broadway performances before closing in 2002, Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s The Fantasticks set the record for the world’s longest-running musical. So what makes this comic love story so popular? It could be the musical numbers, such as “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.” It could be the relatable themes of young love and meddling fathers, or the handsome and suave narrator, El Gallo. Thanks to an ArtisTree Music Theatre Festival professional production, Vermont theatergoers can get swept away by this story of a boy and a girl who fall in love, part ways and reunite for a more meaningful relationship. at The Grange Theatre in South Pomfret. Upper Valley (map). $18-35.

    Fresh out of jail, a guitar-slinging hunk of burning love rides into a square midwestern town. Could there be a better setup for an Elvis Presley-inspired musical? Elvis lovers can’t help but fall in love with the Lamoille County Players’ production of All Shook Up, a hip-shaking jukebox musical with a story based on William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Set in 1955, this high-energy blend of rock and roll and musical theater features rollicking dance numbers and classic songs made famous by the King — think “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock” and “Don’t Be Cruel.” Thank you. Thank you very much. at Hyde Park Opera House in Hyde Park. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $10-18.
