This weekend, BarnArts’ production of “The Lion King” wowed audiences with the high caliber of the students’ performances. Some of the students have been with the youth theater program since its start in 2013, and the training shows in their strong voices and harmonies, and some wonderful performances. It has been great watching kids grow over the years, as performers and as human beings.

This week, BarnArts’ Music Series at Feast and Field presents Billy Wylder at 5:30 p.m., a folk/ rock/ world ensemble from Boston with original tunes and covers. Next Thursday, talented local favorite Haywire performs. Music is supported by the pass of the bucket, and larger donations and business sponsors support other costs including the rainy day fund (which is unfortunately needed this year!)

On Tuesday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m., at the Barnard Historical Society Schoolhouse Museum, the Historical Society will present a Vermont Humanities Council Event about Beatrix Potter. Using books, props and bibliography, Helene Lang will highlight Potter’s artistic talent, her writing ability, where every word is appropriate and perfectly arranged; and finally, her years as a countrywoman raising Herdwick sheep. The presentation takes her from her Victorian childhood, through the years of her little books, to her final 30 years of farming in England’s Lake District.
