In April of 2012 we performed Doubt, a play about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. In 2013 besides our Shakespeare history Henry IV, Part 2 and Titus Andronicus, we produced On Many of These Same Stations, a group of radio plays from the 1930’s and 40’s. 2014 was a very busy year, with Shakespeare’s Anthony and Cleopatra, featuring dances by Origins Folkloric Dance Company, of Boston, Massachusetts, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and The Weir. In 2015 we did Henry V, by Shakespeare, On Many of These Same Stations, and The Bad Seed. 2016 saw us produce Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, and Greater Tuna. We had the privilege to be the first dramatic production at the Strand Theater, on Main Street, Hudson Falls in 2017 with Shakespeare’s tragedy King Lear, followed that season by As You Like It. We finished that season with an original adaptation of Dracula.
