Event at Boscobel on June 3
The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival will hold its annual summer gala beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 3, at Boscobel in Garrison.
At the event, Artistic Director Davis McCallum will discuss HV Stories, a multi-year program that will focus on works by and about the people of the Hudson Valley. It will begin with Rhinebeck-based playwright Richard Nelson’s The General from America, which tells the story behind Benedict Arnold’s notorious attempt to betray West Point.
Singer-songwriter Heather Christian, who composes music for the festival and lives in Beacon, will provide entertainment and introduce the acting company. A live auction will be conducted by C. Hugh Hildesley, executive vice president at Sotheby’s, followed by dinner and dancing to the Alex Donner Orchestra.
To reserve a seat or table, call Catherine Taylor-Williams at 845-809-5750, ext. 12, or visit hvshakespeare.org.
The 2017 HVSF season begins under the tent on Friday, June 9, with a preview of The Book of Will, written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by McCallum.
