ANNOUNCING OUR 2014 SUMMER SEASON
AS YOU LIKE IT by William Shakespeare
Don't miss Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies about flirtation, friendship and mistaken identity. AS YOU LIKE IT is a 60 minute lighthearted look at the fickle and passionate nature of love. Will wit and merriment overcome jealousy and deception? How will true love ever find its way, lost in the delightful madness of the forest? Rosalind, her cousin Celia, and her clown Touchstone encounter a number of colorful, backwoods characters in a tale of mistaken identities and romance... or something like it.

The Penguin Tango
by Stephen Svoboda (The AC's Artistic Director!!!!)
In this side-splitting, screwball comedy, inspired by actual events at the Bremerhaven, Brooklyn, and Central Park Zoos, a community of penguins is hilariously turned upside down by sex & soggy sardines. Broadway World called The Penguin Tango “… sweet, charming, and utterly enjoyable.” Don’t miss the chance to see the play Backstage Magazine calls “…a parachute ride into an anthropomorphic amusement park.”

Last summer was one of the most successful yet. We rebranded our summer season and had over 4500 people join us during the course of our 4 productions and 2 concerts that we offered for it. We traveled to all corners of the Adirondack Park, to new cities and old. Thank you to all of those who participated in the ADK Summer Playhouse. We wouldn’t be where we are without each and every one of you! The Great Camp Sagamore Weekend was a huge success, and we cannot thank them enough for their hospitality, and our guests for spending a very special and lovely weekend of theatre with us all.
Our summer festival was featured in the Hamilton County Express newspaper last year as well! Click the topics for some of the stories! Mamma Mia, I Love The Beatles! Singing Billboards! WE MADE IT! The Sun Sets...
