Actor to bring Robert Frost to life

DERRY — Although Poet Laureate Robert Frost was born in California, it was his time on his farm at 122 Rockingham Road in Derry, from 1900 to 1911, that brought out his best and most famous works. 

Frost attributed many of his poems to memories from the Derry years. The white clapboard farmhouse will welcome professional actor J.T. Turner in a one-man show, “Robert Frost, Light and Dark” on Sunday, Sept. 14, at 2 p.m. 

This show, three years in the making, amplifies the situations in Frost's poems by relating them to the poet's life. Turner brings Frost to life and will tell the stories behind his work. 

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 432-3091 or visit
