Join us for a conversation with Jarvis Antonio Green, Founding Artistic Director of JAG Productions and BarnArts Center for the Arts. This community event will be a meaningful look behind the scenes at the founding of JAG Productions. Having successfully led JAG through an inaugural season featuring Mainstage productions of Choir Boy, JAGFest, Fences and a number of community events, Jarvis Green is sharing his journey to founding the organization. In this open conversation, Jarvis is baring his soul and all that it has taken to produce first class art and build a sustainable organization. In an event that will be valuable to theatre artists, theatre goers and community members alike, this will be a chance to engage in a conversation about building community through theatre.

JAG Productions is a not for profit professional theatre company in the Upper Valley of Vermont. Its mission is to produce classic & contemporary theatre and serve as an incubator of new work that excites broad intellectual engagement through the lens of the African-American experience.

Jarvis is is the Founding Producing Artistic Director of JAG Productions and BarnArts Center for the Arts.
