ICYMI: Innovative Shakespeare Production Makes Lone U.S. Stop in Hanover

‘Stranger Things’ actor David Harbour will be in Hanover this weekend

You can see him in the flesh!

Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts will host “An Evening with Stranger Things‘ David Harbour” on Sunday. The event will include a custom reel clip and a live conversation with the actor, who also is a 1997 Dartmouth graduate, according to a news release.

From the release:

On May 13, the Hopkins Center presents an evening with this beloved son of Dartmouth, including a compilation of his work and a conversation about his two-decade journey as an actor—from treading the boards at Dartmouth as a theater major to his work in television and film. He will also share stories about preparing for his starring role in the upcoming reboot of Hellboy, due out in January 2019, and other future projects.

Harbour currently plays the role of Jim Hopper, the chief of police in fictional Hawkins, Ind., on the hit Netflix series Stranger Things. He recently wrapped filming on Hellboy, in which he will play the title character. (He also recently returned from a trip to Antarctica to see penguins.)

The event is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sunday in the Spaulding Auditorium. The community is invited to attend. Tickets are $8 with a Dartmouth ID; otherwise, $15. Click here for more information or to buy tickets.

How’s about a free screening of the new Wes Anderson movie in Hanover tonight?

For a change, it appears the ice will be very nice for one of the Upper Valley Trails Alliance’s biggest fundraisers of the year.


The Lake Morey Skating Trail is set to host the annual UVTA Skate-a-Thon on Jan. 21 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. The trail, a 4½-mile loop, will be open for skaters to show how many laps they can complete in support of the UVTA.

The group of boys took to taking turns sliding on the ice when there was a lull in the fishing action. (Valley News – Sarah Priestap)
