CTG Summer Theater Festival at Indian Ladder Farms

Great theater under the stars!

Welcome to our 11th annual season – a collaboration between the Classic Theater Guild and Indian Ladder Farms. We work together to bring great dramatic arts to you right here in the orchard! 

The Classic Theater Guild was established exclusively to advance education in the theater arts through the production of contemporary and classical plays. The Guild also works to strengthen theater arts, support emerging playwrights, encourage arts education, and encourage individuals to enter acting by promoting the benefits of dramatic entertainment to educational institutions and to the general public.

Indian Ladder Farms is happy to act as host for the Guild’s summer theater program in an idyllic setting under the Helderberg Escarpment.

This year, we will be performing “Love’s Labor’s Lost,” one of Shakespeare’s earlier comedies, which focuses on themes of masculine love and desire. The tale follows Ferdinand, the King of Navarre and three of his men (Berowne, Dumaine, and Longaville) as they take an oath to forswear the company of women. They agree to devote themselves to studying and fasting for three years. It becomes increasingly difficult for them as the Princess of France and her ladies arrive, wishing to speak to the King.

This year’s youth production will be “Robin Hood.”

All performances will be held in the orchard at Indian Ladder Farms, on Route 156 between Voorheesville and Altamont. To attend, please follow the signs to our location behind the Farm Market. Please bring your own chair or blanket.  Bug spray for summer nights might be a good idea as well.

 

Please support the Festival by purchasing refreshments served during the intermission.
