The Weir

Written by Conor McPherson
Directed by Josh Hitchens
Streaming March 12, 13 and 14

On a dark and stormy night, four men seek shelter in a small rural bar deep in the Irish countryside, a place haunted by legendary superstitions. They are trying to impress the stranger among them, a woman named Valerie who has recently moved into the local haunted house. In this time of isolation, we all hunger for human contact and comfort, and sometimes the best way we can connect with one another is by finally telling the personal stories that reveal who we really are as human beings in spite of our deepest, darkest fears.

Starring: Chris Braak , Molly Edelman, Sam Fineman, Josh Hawkins and Ryan Walter


Summer Art Camp 2021

Our Summer Art Camp registrations are now open for 2021!  We learned a lot last year about how to keep our campers and staff safe and have brought all those guidelines and equipment back this year as well as all the fun and excitement.  Our in-person campers will still get top level instruction in a wide variety of artistic disciplines like Dance, Theater, Singing, Crafts, Art and Ceramics plus plenty of Outdoor Games and Activities while our virtual campers will get more specific instruction in the performing or visual arts from well qualified teaching artists who know how to bring out the fun and creativity in your child. Due to the pandemic, we will still be limiting the number of in-person campers this year and have again streamlined our camp offerings.  We also made improvements to our virtual camp with dedicated instructors and new lessons for those who want to their campers to participate remotely.
