    Tools

    Sun., Dec. 9, 7 p.m.

    Before there were CGI-heavy films shown in massive theaters with stadium seating and booming surround sound, there were silent motion pictures accompanied by live music. The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra transport cinephiles to the early 1900s with their program Christmas at the Silent Movies. Described by the Washington Post as “the premier American ragtime ensemble,” the Maryland-based band accompanies holiday-themed silent films with the original orchestral scores. Festive flicks include the 1922 short “The Frozen North” starring Buster Keaton and the first-ever film adaptations of A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas. at The Double E Lounge at Essex Cinemas & T-Rex Theater in Essex Junction.

    'The Arsonists'

    'The Arsonists'

    Tools

    Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30-9 p.m. and Sundays, 3-4:30 p.m. Continues through Dec. 16

    Something unusual is happening in Gottlieb Biedermann’s neighborhood. Fire-happy individuals disguised as door-to-door salespeople are taking up residence in locals’ attics, then setting their homes ablaze in Max Frisch’s 1958 play The Arsonists. Directed by Waitsfield’s Louis Bronson, the Valley Players raise the curtain on this dark comedy centered on Biedermann’s struggle to reconcile his humanity with his instinct for survival. Gallows humor, witty dialogue and poignant social commentary thread through the parable that the Washington Post described last year as “a 1950s political warning that hasn’t burned out yet.” at Valley Players Theater in Waitsfield. Mad River Valley/Waterbury (map). $12-14.
