Come see Mixed Nuts, a screw-ball musical about six inmates from the Vermont State Hospital who, while performing at a local theater, secede from the state institution and try to bring Vermonters along with them in seceding from the United States. See www.Unadilla.org or contact the theater directly at 802 456 8968.
Mixed Nuts is music from the 20s and 30s, and a cast of independence-minded eccentrics from the Vermont State Hospital who have prepared a vaudeville review on the History of Vermont directed by Dr. Elizabeth Darcy. The bizarre crew of entertainers is lead by a re-incarnated, unpredictable, and loveable Ethan Allen.

Ethan Allen: Revolutionary Outlaw
During the Revolutionary War, and after the battles of Lexington and Concord, Ethan Allen captured Fort Ticonderoga in May 1775. This was the first fort taken by the Americans. On September 24, 1775 in Montreal, Canada, Ethan was captured and kept on British prison ships. The British barely kept him alive, then two and a half years later he was exchanged for a colonel and was set free.
