Pendragon Summer Season Tickets Go On Sale | News, Sports, Jobs

SARANAC LAKE — Individual tickets for the Pendragon Theater’s summer productions went on sale from Thursday.

To kick off the 2022 summer season, Pendragon Theater presents “Circular Mirror Transformation” by Annie Baker, edited by Sarah Norris.

“Attractive, sweet and heartbreaking, the play is set in a small town in Vermont where a group of strangers gather for an ‘adult acting class’ once a week and slowly reveal their triumphs and tragedies.” reads a press release from Pendragon.

Performances run Tuesday through Sunday, June 21-26, with curtains at 7 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.

Director, Sarah Norris, has also been hired as an arts producer at Pendragon, where she will work with general manager Michael Aguirre to expand educational programming, produce arts seasons and cultivate an artistic core of local artists to present theater in the Adirondacks year round.

“I am delighted to be part of the Pendragon family in an official capacity and look forward to continuing Pendragon’s illustrious history,” Norris said. “It is my dream to extend Pendragon’s legacy as an artistic home for a wide range of artists.”

Norris directed last summer “The H*tler Tasters”, which recently completed an off-Broadway run at Theater Row on 42nd Street, was featured in the BBC, The New York Times and named TimeOut NY Critics’ Pick. His work has been seen around the world. She served as artistic director of the New Light Theater Project, Access Theater – a 30-year-old multi-theatre institution in midtown Manhattan – and has produced both on and off Broadway.

In July, a Camp Pendragon production of the musical “Frozen Jr.” directed by HK Wall, choreographed by Kendall Davison under the musical direction of Samuel Brown, will land at Pendragon. The production will feature over 20 local students in grades 5-12. Camp Pendragon not only gives students the opportunity to put on a show, but also offers acting classes and workshops throughout camp, giving them the chance to meet other peers from the area as well. .

Shows for “Frozen Jr.” July 22-31 with evening performances at 7 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m. on July 23, July 24 and July 31.

The main musical of the summer is “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” directed and choreographed by Arthur Ross.

“This musical has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. A riotous ride, featuring audience participation, the show is a delightful haunt of comedic genius. Rated PG-13 for a little crude humour, reads a press release from Pendragon.

Performances are scheduled August 9-21, Tuesday through Saturday, with a curtain call at 7 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

Finally, to close the season, Pendragon will present a new piece in preview, “Woods,” by Jahna Ferron-Smith and directed by Colette Robert. The play examines the crisis of declining visitation to national parks and the rush to attract people of color to America’s great outdoors. The play contains sexually explicit content and is intended for mature audiences only, according to Pendragon. Performances will take place from August 30 to September 4, Tuesday to Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets for productions range from $25 to $50. Fares are higher on the day and at the door, so customers are encouraged to book in advance for discounted tickets.

A summer celebration hosted by the Pendragon Theater and supported by Skyward Hospitality is also planned. The event is scheduled for 5-8 p.m. July 13 at Ampersand Bay Resort with food, drink, games and a ceremony honoring longtime staff member Kent Streed. Early bird adult tickets on sale for $75 or family rate is $175 (2 adults, children unlimited).
