    NEXT! Readings of New Works by Regional Playwrights Play Reading Series
    Fenimore Auditorium, doors open at 6:30 p.m., performance begins at 7 p.m. Free by Donation.

    Due to the incredible response received when the Fenimore produced a locally written play last winter, NEXT! was born! A competition of sorts, we invited local playwrights from around Central New York to submit their plays for a chance to be produced as a reading in 2017. Originally only three plays were going to be selected, but we were so impressed with the quality of the work we received, we will be doing FOUR plays!

    Saturday, February 11 at 7:00 p.m. - Lord of the Wilderness by Ron Nash
    Saturday, February 25 at 7:00 p.m. - Memorial Night by Jonathon Ward
    Saturday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. - Sunset Painting by Greg Klein
    Saturday, March 25 at 7:00 p.m. - SAPE by Karen Butler

    This event will be free by donation, concessions will be sold with all proceeds benefitting the Performing Arts program. There will also be a panel discussion afterwards in which we will invite the community to give the playwright feedback on their work in open forum.

  • Free Film Screening: Newtown

    Mar 12 2017

    Indie Lens Pop-Up Film Screening: Newtown
    Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 7:00pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
    Fenimore Auditorium
    Free admission!

    Filmed over the course of nearly three years, the filmmakers use unique access and never before heard testimonies to tell a story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history on December 14, 2012. Newtown documents a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose. Joining the ranks of a growing club to which no one wants to belong, a cast of characters interconnect to weave an intimate story of community resilience.

    Directed by Kim A. Snyder
