Pendragon Theatre has been awarded a $500,000 grant from Market NY toward the acquisition and construction of a new theatre in downtown Saranac Lake. This grant, which recognizes Pendragon’s potential to increase tourism and downtown business, will allow the theatre to proceed with the second phase of design. According to Pendragon’s board president, Holly Wolff, the grant also recognizes the power of local support, starting with a pledge from Cloudsplitter Foundation and other leadership givers.
This major award comes just as Pendragon has signed the option to purchase the downtown Saranac Lake property at 56 Woodruff St. The next steps in the process will be to solicit community and stakeholder input into the design and development of the renovated and new performance spaces. Meetings will be held in the coming weeks to solicit ideas and prepare to work with the architects to develop an exciting new space in downtown Saranac Lake in concert with the Downtown Revitalization Initiative.
Pendragon Theatre will be presenting Guys On Ice, the popular ice fishing musical, January 25 through February 24, at their current 15 Brandy Brook Ave, Saranac Lake location. More information can be found on www.pendragontheatre.org . Pendragon Theatre is a year-round professional non-for-profit theatre.
GUYS ON ICE, THE ICE FISHING MUSICAL, COMING SOON!
Book and Lyrics by Fred Alley
Music by James Kaplan
Directed by Kimberly Bouchard
Lucky Cerruti, Brenden Gotham & Brandy Clark!
Three fishing buddies sing and dance delivering songs like “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit” and “There’s 12 Beers in a 12 Pack”. Marvin and Lloyd sit in an ice shanty out on a frozen lake, fishing through a hole in the ice and waiting for the perch to bite and for a local TV show host to come and interview them. They drink beer, discuss their women and sports (not necessarily in that order), swap bad jokes, get a visit from their mooching buddy and drink beer. Did we mention they drink beer?
