Terms of Endearment at the Copake Grange

The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present Terms Of Endearment by Dan Gordon.

Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in Dan Gordon’s adaption of Terms Of Endearment from the Oscar-winning screenplay by James L. Brooks and Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Larry McMurtry. Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma’s struggle with her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find the courage in each other? This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.

The Ghent Playhouse Presents, Miracle on South Division Street

Screen Shot 2019-02-08 at 10.12.31 AM
The Ghent Playhouse’s 2019 season is off and running with Miracle on South Division Street.

Clara Nowak, of Buffalo, NY, and her three grown kids have always known they were special, ever since the miraculous night in 1942, when the Blessed Mother appeared to their grandfather in his barbershop! Since then the neighborhood has looked upon the Nowaks’ commemorative shrine as a beacon of hope and faith amidst the urban rubble. When daughter Ruth announces her plans to write and star in a one-woman show about the family miracle so the “whole world will know,” a deathbed confession causes the family legend to unravel.

Walking The Dog Theater Presents, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

christmas-carol-2017-3_orig
Walking the dog theater Co., presents Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Now a tradition for 13 years with WTD, the performance of this timeless story continues its evolution.

The theater’s Executive Artistic Director David Anderson, who performs the piece solo (moving fluidly from character to character) says of the project, “A Christmas Carol has become an annual tradition in many communities, and it is the best way I know to become inspired by the season.”

Through drama and masterful storytelling, Anderson performs the story exactly as Dickens wrote it, giving the audience not only the dialogue but the descriptive passages as well. Anderson’s rendition, directed by Ted Pugh, is a modern revival of Dickens’ own manner of storytelling. Dickens gave performances drawn from A Christmas Carol and The Pickwick Papers throughout the Northeastern United States, from his arrival in Boston in mid-November, 1867 to his return to England in April 1868.

DATES/TIMES (2018):
Friday, December 21 at 8 pm
Saturday, December 22 at 8 pm
Sunday, December 23 at 8 pm
Monday, December 24 at 3 pm

LOCATION:
