BERLIN, N.H. — Denise Doucette and her talented cast have been busy planning and rehearsing for this year’s production of Cabin Fever Follies, an annual benefit performance for St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts to be held on Sunday, Feb. 14. The event showcases some of the finest talent that the North Country can offer — young, old and in between! St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts is ever-grateful for the time and talent contributions of our local performers.

As a special treat, the Celtic group Islay Mist Ceilidh will be opening with a pre-show, beginning at 1:30 p.m., which will be filled with the sounds of Ireland and Scotland.
