Theater this Weekend

I felt like I needed to update the Theater stuff because I keep hearing about more school plays.  There are a ton this weekend.  So, I’ll let you know about the other weekend events tomorrow, but it was pretty much unmanageable to try to get it all in one ginormous post.

I’d share some clever prose with you, but my sweet husband is working his way through some Tostitos and bean dip, so I’ve got to jump in their before there’s nothing left but crumbs and gas!

Theater around the area:

  • The Palace Theatre has Doktor Kaboom! on March 26th (sold out) and Playhouse Disney Live! on April 3rd.
  • The Lake George Opera is still presenting The Three Little Pigs.  They’ll be at the First United Presbyterian Church in Troy on Friday night, and at the Wood Theater in Glens Falls on Saturday at 11 am.  These shows are free, people.  FREE!
  • Confetti Stage is performing The Boxcar Children at Albany Masonic Hall March 26-28 (scroll down on the home page for details).
  • At The Egg, Justin Roberts will be singing on Sunday, April 11th, and the New York Theatre Ballet will be dancing Sleeping Beauty on Sunday, April 18th–it’s a performance designed for kids.  They’ve also got A Year with Frog and Toad showing on March 15th–there’s no option to purchase for this one online, since it’s a school group performance, but any group can purchase tickets to performances like these, so if you’d like to go, get your group together quick:  there were about 30 seats available.

High School Musicals and other entertainment by students (with special thanks to the new-ish Albany Times Union Student Arts blog, which helped me find many of these):
