Ron Hutchinson writes again.

Between Breaking Heads at AotL on Sept. 23, and Cadenza, on April 13, Ron Hutchinson had time to write The Call for a BBC broadcast on January 18 and A Leap in the Dark for a well-received opening on Feb 9 at the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England.

Neil Hickey dies.

It is with great sadness that we announce that our long-time friend, founding member and supporter of the Arts Center Neil Hickey died yesterday (3/21/24) of a sudden heart attack at the age of 92. He was saddened by the death of his wife Lisa last month and in the midst of planning a memorial for her. Active until the end, Neil attended the opening of “Dirt” last Friday and conversed freely with the creators and his friends in the audience.
May the blessings of St. Patrick be upon him.

Update: a memorial for Lisa and Neil is being planned for Sunday, May 19.

We seem to be experiencing ticket processing errors this weekend for DIRT. Please call us at 845 228-2685 to reserve if the web doesn't work for you. We have tickets for Friday and Saturday, but Sunday is sold out.

Curtis Winchester Concert is INSIDE tonight

We have decided to move the concert inside due to the threat of severe weather warnings that are between 5 and 7 PM.  Of course, it might be beautiful because we are going inside, but we want to take the safer course of action. We have plenty of chairs for folks inside so there is no need to bring lawn chairs. You are still welcome to bring food if you like, but we have a delicious food truck outside and a number of tables under a tent to eat at.
