Open Season, a World Premiere Musical
Lake George Theater Lab at Wiawaka! In association with the Women’s Project in New York City.
Join us this summer in a new venue, where we will have a week long artists retreat with three different female playwright/director teams. Three female playwrights and their respective directors will live and work on the property with a group of actors, utilizing the newly renovated Wakonda Lodge, from July 15-22nd. Tricia Burt brings up her one woman play, How to Draw a Nekkid Man, Kristen Palmer is taking us to Gloucester Point, Liz Duffy Adams begins her journey into a strange new world here at Wiawaka and April Yvette Thompson will turn her play Good Bread Alley into a musical in time for Sundance.In addition to having open rehearsals where patrons can check out the artistic process themselves, there will be a concert reading of excerpts from the three plays including a talk back with the artists on the process of writing a brand new play Saturday July 20th at 7:00 PM. Event sponsored by The Kayak Shop, The Charles Wood Foundation, Columbia Properties, Capital Region Orthopeadics, Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council and The Lake George Mirror with support from Stewarts and the Sandy Hill Foundation.
Jesuit Priest and award winning playwright Bill Cain and songwriting/performing duo Micah Bucey and Nicholas Williams will be upstate for our annual New Play Lab, turning Bill’s two person play Open Season into a brand new musical! All songs will be original and written during their time upstate in our Lab Retreat. A concert reading will be performed Saturday August 3rd at 7:30 PM at Bolton ConservationClub with a talk back with the artists afterwards. Event sponsored by The Town of Bolton with support from Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council, the Sandy Hill Foundation and Northern Elevator Lifts.
2013 is the season of the playwright. The seed where it all begins. Lake George Theater Lab has succeeded in providing a safe, supportive and fertile stomping ground for established and emerging playwrights alike. We would particularly like to note the recent opening and success of last year’s New Play Lab participant Aaron Posner and his original adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Stupid F*ing Bird at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company. Already many theater companys and schools across the country are adding it to their season, and guess where it was heard first? On our very shores. Who will be next?
