Summer, summer, summer time. Most people think of summer as vacation, fun and sun. Did you know that your 'fun' could include taking in quality professional summer stock theater right in your local area?
During the months of May through August, thousands of regional theaters open their doors to you, the patron, to produce top quality productions across the country. Right here in the Capital District we have Park Playhouse, The Mac-Haydn Theatre, Merry Go Round Playhouse, Lake George Dinner Theatre and The Theater Barn, many of whom The Costumer helps dress. While gigantic musicals tend to be produced, Shakespeare and smaller plays are just as easily enjoyed by all. Many of these theatres hire New York's finest actors, designers and tech staff. Chances are you would see company members from all over the country.
So while you are vacationing by a lake or on the beach, check out the local theater. Oh, and let us know what your favorite costume is!
