IT’S ONLY A PLAY now through February 18!

3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18

Directed by KIT COLBOURN

It’s Only A Play is a laugh-out- loud love letter to the resilience of live theatre, and an homage to the people that — even when things seem impossible — believe that the marquee will be lit again, and the show must go on. The producers, the playwrights, the reviewers, and the stars. A Broadway opening night party in a stylish NYC apartment brings together a cacophony of characters, with an armload of wit, warmth, and winter coats!

Please note “It’s Only a Play” contains adult language.

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

“Dim the lights, get ready for curtain, and remember, ‘no matter what happens tonight, it’s only a play.’”




Season 65 is sponsored by Hudson Valley Credit Union

The Mel Brooks Musical: Young Frankenstein
Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks
Directed by Kevin Barnes

Auditions: Sunday February 6 (7pm) & Monday February 7 (7pm)

From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation – Young Frankenstein!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s. Eventually, of course, the monster escapes and hilarity continuously abounds.

Casting: Men, 3 Women for the principal roles plus an Ensemble of 12 -16 men and women (Gravediggers, Villagers, Medical Students, Passengers, Mad Scientists)
