The season begins with a series of three performance readings in July at the Beekman Pavilion across from the Fat Lady Café in Kauneonga. A double bill of Chekov’s “A Reluctant Tragic Hero,” a comedy about the perils of summer vacation, and Paul Austin’s “The Hipster’s Ballad of the Nazarene” will be performed Thursday, July 3. Edward Albee’s groundbreaking comedy of family life, “The American Dream,” will play Thursday, July 17. David Mamet’s “Reunion,” the story of a father and daughter trying to reconnect, will play on Thursday, July 24. All performances are at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. The audience is invited to enjoy complimentary hors d’oevres and a cash bar at the Fat Lady Café after the performances.

“By the Sea - Anna’s Story,” the premiere of a new work by the celebrated Canadian writer, Sheldon Currie, will debut at CAS in Livingston Manor on Friday, July 11. “By the time we got to Woodstock,” by Rilla Askew and “Summer of the Perpetual Buzz,” adapted from Joe Freda’s novel, “The Patience of Rivers” will celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival at the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, August 14 to 17. The theatre will continue its annual Evening of Poetry and Jazz with Barry Wallenstein and Steve Carlin at the Dead End Café in Parksville on Saturday, August 23. “The Police,” Slawomir Mrozek’s farcical take on the conflict between authority and rebellion will play at NACL Theatre in Highland Lake September 4 to 7.
