Our 2020-2021 Season is currently up in the air, but that does not mean that we are on pause. We will have an outdoor performance of Cry It Out as a fundraiser (see below for details). Watch for us in other spaces as well!
Nunsense! by Dan Goggin – June 11, 12, 18, 19 – The Mansion Inn, Rock City Falls.
A zany, wholesome, hilarious musical revue presented by the Little Sisters of Hoboken, Nunsense is a heavenly delight! The show is a fundraiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidentally poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God).
New Jerusalem by David Ives – July 25 at Congregation Beth Shalom in Clifton Park and August 1 at Congregation Shaara Tfille in Saratoga Springs. There will be two performances in each location.
Baruch de Spinoza is a young merchant and the heir apparent of Saul Mortera, the chief Rabbi of Amsterdam. But Amsterdam’s Sephardic Jews have made a fatal arrangement with the city: They have agreed to police their own community for unorthodox beliefs. When the city accuses Spinoza of atheism, Mortera must summon Baruch to the synagogue to defend himself. Spinoza’s best friend, his sister and the woman he loves are all drawn into the controversy, a historical event that shook up not only the entire Jewish community of Amsterdam, but changed Spinoza’s and Mortera’s lives—and all of Western thought—irrevocably. No written record survives of what was said at Temple Talmud Torah on July 27, 1656. In this eloquent and masterful drama, David Ives attempts to open the temple doors and let us listen in on a dispute whose philosophical and political echoes still reverberate today.
Story Theater – a collection of Aesop’s Fables and Grimm Fairy Tales adapted for the stage by Paul Simms. – August 28, 29 – Miller Farm, Gansevoort.
In Story Theater you will meet again Henny Penny, the Golden Goose, the Fisherman and His Wife, the Bremen Towson Musicians, and other favorites. The fables require talented actors with expressive bodies. And make no mistakes about the quality: this is top-drawer adult theatre that will be fun for the whole family!
