SOUTH FALLSBURG, NY — Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop will open its 2023 season with the world premiere of “Fool: the wanderings of the last Clown on Earth” on Friday, May 12 at the Rivoli Theatre. Further dates and times are below.
The show was created by local performer Ellie J, aka Clown Daddy.
“Fool” describes a solitary clown, surrounded by a world that is being run by soulless machines. Those whose job it is to create laughter and fun have been shunned, and so the clown is stuck living alone in a bunker. But on a day that seems like all the rest, something extraordinary happens—and she has to go outside.
“Fool” is the main act of Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop’s triple feature. It will follow “Simply Cinderella”—performed by the Benjamin Cosor Elementary School’s Creative Theatre class (see brief below)—and by the SDCW’s Youth Theatre in “Alice in Wonderland.”
“Alice” is described as a lovely, sweet and funny adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s book. A little girl, a hyper rabbit, a sly cat, a colorful caterpillar, a croquet game with a queen and a March hare could stir up the imagination of young and old, an SCDW spokesperson said.
Performances will be held on Fridays and Saturdays, May 12, 13, 19 and 20 beginning at 7 p.m. for “Alice in Wonderland” and at 8 p.m. for “Fool”; additional performances start at 2 p.m. on two Sundays, May 14 and 21.
The Rivoli Theatre is located at 5243 Main St.
For more information on “Fool” and “Alice in Wonderland,” visit www.scdw.net.

NARROWSBURG, NY — An artist’s reception for Brandi Merolla’s exhibit ACTIVATED will be held at the Narrowsburg Union from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 13.
For much of her life, Merolla said, she has stood up against injustice. She chronicled those protests too, and has collected 400 of her photographs in ACTIVATED, the current exhibit at the Narrowsburg Union Digital Gallery.
The demonstrations call for action to combat the climate crisis and to defend clean water, to strengthen civil rights and those of women, to demand gender equality.
Merolla said she has been activated to stand up for a cause from early childhood “as my way of fighting injustice. I’ve documented demonstrations by taking thousands of photos of the passionate concerns and signs of expression of those ACTIVATED. I’ve been honored to promote ‘justice for all’ as a part of the people’s collective voice in this fragile democracy.”
The exhibit is free to the public.
