The Rooted Voyageurs Present The Witching Hour, Oct 15 & 16

The Rooted Voyageurs are doing three performances of their production, The Witching Hour, on October 15 and 16.

The veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is thinning, when a witch comes to communicate with the dead about a local tragedy, more is revealed than meets the eye. Join The Rooted Voyageurs for their production of The Witching Hour. The Witch (Devante Owens) will tell a chilling story inspired by local lore about the Hoosac Tunnel, written by Luke Haskell. Following the performance, there will be a spooky open mic! Put your name in a hat and be chosen to tell a story of your own.

The performance will run 45 minutes (followed by the open mic) and is free to the public. Seating is limited and on a first come first serve basis.

The Rooted Voyageurs is a theater company, founded by Devante Owens (Artistic Director) and Zoe Wohlfeld (Managing Producer), whose mission is art without admission. They believe everyone should have access to empathic, joyful and entertaining stories, and that live theater is more captivating when people from all walks of life are on stage and in the audience. Their performances are free to the public.

Ghent Playhouse Presents Buyer & Cellar

The Ghent Playhouse presents, ‘Buyer & Cellar’, running weekends in October, 2022.

This outrageously funny and irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises – a struggling L.A. actor takes a job working in Barbra Streisand’s Malibu, California basement – makes for some delicious wit and insight on the solitude of celebrity, the love-hate attraction between gay men and divas, and the melancholy that lurks beneath the narcissism.

Written by Jonathan Tolins
Directed by Cathy Lee-Visscher

“Three Decembers” copresented by the Berkshire Opera Festival at PS21, Jul 21 & 23

Three Decembers will be copresented by the Berkshire Opera Festival and PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century. Performances will be at PS21 on July 21 and 23.

What if the family narrative that shapes us is a lie? Three Decembers tells the story of aging Broadway star Madeline Mitchell and her two adult children as they struggle to connect and heal old wounds while family secrets are revealed. This intimate, compelling drama takes place over two decades during the AIDS crisis, and has been hailed by critics as a modern masterpiece.

The one act Three Decembers takes a deep look at the meaning of connection in the contemporary American family through the story of Broadway star Madeline Mitchell and her children. Stage Director Beth Greenberg, renowned for her work at the New York City Opera, says of the opera: “Buried secrets…dark whispers…love, and devastating loss…all collide and burst forth in Three Decembers. With its skillful balance of drama and èlan, the work probes the fraught relationships between a successful actress-mother and her two children—a daughter coping with a failing marriage, and her young, gay son at the beginnings of the AIDS epidemic.”

Music by Jake Heggie
Libretto by Gene Scheer
Based on an original play by Terrence McNally Commissioned by the Houston Grand Opera in 2008

DATE/TIME: Thursday, July 21, 2022 / 7:30pm & Saturday, July 23, / 1pm

TICKETS: $20 – $60
Available Online
