Amici! Amigos! Friends! What a great season we had

Huge congrats and warm hugs to all our friends who worked so tirelessly this past season to mount four wonderful productions.

Hope you were lucky enough to catch:

  • The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
    Very funny, with beautiful singing and choreography, and a touching end.
  • An Inspector Calls
    Beautiful costumes, fascinating set, great acting and directing all added up to a compelling and timely play.
  • Sunset Boulevard
    Featuring bravura performances and stunning stagecraft, the production earned raves from happy audiences.
  • The Graduate
    Innovative set design, solid comedic acting, fun costumes — it was an audience pleaser.

Plus, we had a film festival, a holiday performance from a guest artist, and we’re still planning our short play festival! What a year.

Please join us for the next season, which promises to keep going on our track record of community theater at its best.

Cheers to our “Graduate” on opening night

Every opening night ends with our lively champagne reception, and we did it again Friday evening. Audience was packed, and loving the performances.

Congrats to everyone for a great show! Four last chances to catch it.

Audiences love “The Graduate”!

You will, too. No performance today, in honor of the Mrs’s in the play and elsewhere.

But join us this coming Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon.

Happy Mrs Robinson Day!

High honors to our own “Graduate” — commences this Friday!

AFD is all hands deck in the run up to opening night of “The Graduate” on May 12! It’s getting electric in the theater as all the pieces fall into place: costumes, lighting, set, and acting!

Join us for a steamy and funny evening. And remember: In honor of Mrs. Robinson, no performance on Mother’s Day, Sunday. Instead, join us next Thursday.
