Breakfast Time Theatre

Experience LEGACY by Shauna Kanter at the Byrdcliffe Theater in Woodstock, October 2nd or 3rd from 10 am – 12 noon. Reservations strongly suggested: 845 679 0154. Tickets $10.

Based on a true story, a young American man attempts to rescue a Jewish family out of Berlin in 1939. LEGACY unravels as his daughter unearths the story of her father’s cowardice and courage. As she discovers his long-held secrets, we learn that her father is risking his life to save a Jewish photo-journalist who is collecting evidence of mounting nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism. This suspenseful tale of escape intersects with today’s true stories of undocumented, teen refugees.

Thoughts from Robert Edmond Jones

The theatre is a school. We shall never have done with studying and learning. In the theatre, as in life, we try first to free ourselves, as far as we can, from our own limitations.  Then we begin to practice this noble and magical art. Then we begin to dream..

Presentation Today: Friday, March 24th – Saugerties High School

VT’s anti-bullying workshops focusing on original monologues of student definitions of “home”, “the other” and the “refugee”  are being presented today at 11:51am-12:34pm in the library of Saugerties High School, 132 Washington Avenue, Saugerties, NY.

 A monologue: 

The reason that I made the decision to leave my country and my dear family is because here in this country there are many opportunities to be a successful person. I came to this country to find a better life, everyone wants a better life, a calm life, without fear, without apprehension. In my country there are many young boys who are killed because they are in gangs. These are some of the reasons why Hispanic people immigrate to this country to get away from problems that might cause them to die. And those of us who are here do not want to do anything bad, we are here to look for a better life.
