Catch Some Adirondack Theatre Before Summer Ends

Arcadia take threeIt has been a full summer and we have been lucky enough to have visitors from far and wide visiting with us. We’ve hiked mountains and paddled streams.

My family has danced during outdoor concerts, brought picnics to Shakespeare in the Adirondack Park and enjoyed community art walks.

There is plenty of summer time left, but the summer theatre season is winding down so here are a few opportunities to see professional and regional theatre in the Adirondack Park.
