It will last just shy of one hour, and will feature several Charlie Chaplin numbers from his films “A Modern Time,” “A King in New York,” “The Great Dictator,” “The Gold Rush,” and “Limelight - The Terry Theme, as well as numbers by English composer Edward Elgar and Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla. 

“This is our way of still being able to perform programming to our patrons and the community, to show that although we’re closed, we haven’t gone completely dark,” said Bicknell Center Director Joe Firman. “We’re fortunate to have performers like these willing to share their talents and time for the enjoyment of others.”
