Pirates of Penzance

by

W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

The grand masters of melody and comedy! Brilliant music and witty dialog. "Pirates" is their masterpiece!

The Cherry Orchard

by

Anton Chekhov

Madame Ranevskaya is a spoiled aging aristocratic lady, who returns from a trip to Paris to face the loss of her magnificent Cherry Orchard estate after a default on the mortgage. In denial, she continues living in the past, deluding herself and her family, while the beautiful cherry trees are being axed down by the re-possessor Lopakhin, her former serf, who has his own agenda.

Beneath the imperishable beauty of Chekhov's play, are intimations of revolutionary upheaval.

The Father

by

Florian Zeller

The Moliere Prize for France's best play, The Father makes us see things as if through the confused eyes of Andre, as he struggles to make sense of a progressively befuddling world. Sound grim? It's not. It's a play that constantly confounds expectations and works almost like a thriller, with a sinister Pinteresque edge, as complete strangers keep on turning up in Andre's flat.

The Belle of Amherst

by

William Luce

Unadilla Theater has graciously offered GAAR/The Mirror Theater an initial Residency for a new relationship. As a Special Event, The Tony Award winning Belle of Amherst by William Luce will come to the Festival Theater for four performances only, August 8 to 11. Belle of Amherst is about Emily Dickinson and will star Tony-Nominee (Jane Eyre) Marla Schaffel, GAAR’s Artist in Residence. The play will be directed by Sabra Jones, GAAR/The Mirror’s Artistic Director, herself a Fichandler Award nominee, whose work has also received a Tony nomination.

This humorous and lyric play, crafted from diary entries, letters, and poems by Emily Dickinson, is a spellbinding and personal look at the life of one of America’s greatest poets, a vision that is ultimately touching and uplifting.
