The Silver Foxes are a professionally-directed volunteer troupe who have been bringing entertainment to the area for 25 years. These young-at-heart retirees act, sing and dance! Their reputation has spread far and wide with audience and booking demands growing every season.

They travel throughout the area from November to April performing at communities, organizations and other venues. In March, they bring a full-scale production to our MainStage, led by VT’s own BRAD WAGES, director extraordinaire!
