Comedy a la Carte
"Comedy for anyone who has lived a long time...or would like to," goes the mantra of Comedy for the Ages, where wit and laughter always take center stage. Steve Henderson, the one-man wunder-elder behind the company, specializes in hilarious and poignant characters and one-act plays that appeal to audiences both young and young at heart. Having tickled funny bones and tugged heartstrings in a series of shows about his lovable alter ego Jerry Atric, the award-winning playwright now stages a double bill of one-act plays. Spontaneous Combustion starts the show with a blend of humor and drama, while the second play, WLLZ – Radio Theater gets big laughs in its behind-the-scenes story of a radio adventure gone awry.
Hampshire Shakespeare Company
Each summer, as stars glitter in the sky, Hampshire Shakespeare Company illuminates the crowd below with open-air renditions of the Bard's greatest hits. As showgoers lounge on their blankets, chairs, or elephants, the company stages interpretations of Shakespeare's plays that prize intelligibility and entertainment. In addition to its main-stage shows, the Hampshire Shakespeare Company also puts on a youth theater production each year to give youngsters a taste of the stage, and buoys playwrights from throughout the Valley with workshops and readings.
