Arts Center announces exciting 2017 Summer Theatre Festival

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE – The Adirondack Lakes Center for the­ Arts announces the line-up for its exciting 2017 Adirondack Lakes Summer Theatre Festival as part of the Arts Center’s 50th Anniversary season. This year the touring festival will feature the timely play A Walk in the Woods; free outdoor performances of its Shakespeare in the Parks production, The Merry Wives of Windsor; the Great Arts Cabaret; and the hilarious and tuneful comic opera The Pirates of Penzance. The Summer Theatre Festival runs from July 21 through August 20. The festival opens with A Walk in the Woods by award-winning playwright Lee Blessing. Directed by Allison Studdiford, this timely and thought-provoking play will feature two of the North Country’s most acclaimed actors, Burdette Parks and Jordan Hornstein.
