Westport Weston First Night Activities

Venue #1 Westport Town Hall

3-5 p.m.

“Trashin’ Fashion” Fashion Show aims to provide its participants with the chance to design and create costumes out of recycled, inorganic and organic materials. It’s an opportunity to make something wonderful from those things that are left over, and usually thrown away. Creatively conceived and executed apparel will be unleashed on the exclusive Westport fashion scene. Directed by Daniel Lanzilotta and Irina Simeonova of Gibbs College assisted by Staples student Laura Berk. Image

Auditorium, 7-7:45, p.m. 8-8:45 p.m.

Back by overwhelming popular demand, “The Key Ingredients” consist of A.J. Gundel, Scarlett Lee Moore, Suzanne Sheridan, and EdWard Thompson. If these names sound familiar, then you are obviously a music fan who lives in Fairfield County. Individually these musicians have made solid solo careers for themselves but have come together to give their unique sound to a repertoire that includes folk, gospel, and blues music. Their powerful blending of three-part harmonies will have you yelling for more.


Auditorium, 9:15-10 p.m., 10:15-11 p.m.

A rollicking romp of a show that brings back your favorite comedy stars from the golden age of classic Vaudeville – Jimmy Durante, Al Jolson, Abbott and Costello, The Marx Brothers.
