Spring Reading Series Continues with “4000 Miles” – April 7th

Our first reading of the 2016 season was a well-attended staging of Will Eno’s 2014 comedy, “The Realistic Joneses”, last week at New World.

This week on Thursday, April 7, also at New World we continue our Spring Reading Series with Amy Herzog’s 2013 Pulitzer Finalist, “4000 Miles”, directed by Peter Studlo. Come check it out – readings are a great way to meet local actors and hear innovative pieces being read, while chilling out with a drink or a few nibbles. Head over to Marc Maron’s interview with Patrick Stewart to hear him talk about the fundamental power of breathing the same air as the actors on stage, then come join us for this powerful and moving reading.

The Woodstock Community Rocks

Our anti-bullying workshops across the Hudson Valley high school systems have been going really well, but it’s hard work for the participants and they wouldn’t get through without some fuel. We’d like to send around a huge thank you to all the local supporting restaurants and businesses – and the generous owners of those restaurants and businesses – who have supported our efforts by providing lunches for the students. Our friends at Oriole 9, Woodstock Meats, the Landau Grill, Garden Cafe and Joshua’s Cafe, all in Woodstock, have been instrumental in helping us keep our sessions happy, fed and focused. None of this would happen without you. We really appreciate your support and your contribution to the anti-bullying program.

Our efforts with local students will continue over the coming months with our Summer Youth Workshops at the Byrdcliffe Theater. The summer workshops are filling fast, so sign up soon!
