NORWALK — While the Norwalk Theatre is undergoing a series of renovations, Norwalk Arts Center LLC (NAC) is moving forward with several events in the upcoming months. 

The NAC is holding its programming at 22 E. Main St. in downtown Norwalk.

“We have called it NAC@22,” said Vanessa Cook, who co-founded the NAC with Theresa Barcus. 

Open registration for the children’s production of “Peter Pan Jr.” starts Feb. 3.

“‘Elf Jr.’ was very successful,” said Cook, referring to the mid-December performances.

Forty-plus cast members performed in the musical based on the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell as Buddy.

Another planned event is “Mediumship by Peter,” a medium reading fundraising event by Patrick Gorman on March 28. He is known as “a clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient psychic, as well as a fully-conscious medium,” according to the NAC promotional material.

Tickets are available online,” Cook said. 

The NAC also has planned a trip to see the Feb. 23 performance of “He’s Lost His Marbles: The Music of Daniel Ruffing” at Baldwin Wallace University. The musical revue is based largely on the YouTube comedy videos by Jenna Marbles and features songs written by Ruffing, a St. Paul High School graduate and the son of Tom and Tiina. 

“You need to email your interest to see if we have enough interest to do it,” Cook said.

Those who are interested need to send an email to norwalkartscenter@gmail.com.
