Adirondack Theatre Festival Announces 25th Anniversary Season [Berkshire on Stage]
Adirondack Theatre Festival’s Producing Artistic Director Chad Rabinovitz has announced the line-up for ATF’s 25th anniversary season. The leading professional theater in Greater Nippertown dedicated to new plays and musicals, ATF’s season runs from June 14–August 9 with performances at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls. The summer season of fully produced new works features four mainstage shows and four special events, including a multiple award-winning science thriller, a romantic comedy musical based on an incredible true story, a Monty Python-esque musical comedy set in the Dark Ages, and an uplifting musical about a young boy connecting with the grandfather he never knew he had.
“I’m proud to be a part of an organization that plays such a vital role not only in the local arts scene, but in the national theater community,” says Rabinovitz. “A quarter of a century is an important milestone for our organization, and the best way to celebrate it is with the biggest and best season of new plays and musicals in ATF’s history. I couldn’t be more excited for the summer of hilarious, moving, thought-provoking and impactful entertainment. And as always, what you see at ATF, you can’t see anywhere else in the world.”
Adirondack Theatre Festival’s anniversary season follows a record-breaking summer of sold-out performances in 2018, having doubled attendance and subscribership in the past three years.
The 2019 season kicks off with Jeremy Schonfeld & Emily Goodson’s Calling All Kates, running June 14-22. This romantic comedy musical is based on the true story about a young man (Marc) who plans a honeymoon around the world only to have his fiancé break up with him, leaving him with non-transferrable and non-refundable plane tickets. Marc does a social media search to find someone with the exact same name as his ex to travel the globe with him.
