An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein

June 14th, 15th & 16th @ 7:30pm

The Albany County Theatre is excited to invite you to its next production:  “An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein”.

Explore the darkly comic world of Shel Silverstein, a world where nothing is as it seems and where the most innocent conversation can turn menacing in an instant. The ten imaginative plays in this collection range widely in content, but the style is unmistakable.  The master wordsmith turns his focus from children to more mature audiences.  From a woman who is slowly transforming into a bag lady to a pair of rhyming prostitutes, Silverstein’s dialogue is creative, surprising and at some points almost unnerving.

Featuring Jay Shogren and The Flyggapojkernas Family Fun Time Polka Band

Unfortunately, the prize troupe of British actors he’s hired has all fallen ill due to a dastardly combination of indigestible foreign meats.

With time running out, will Bjorn be able to replace them in time and save the show? After all, it’s not like Christmas is known for miracles…

Barrymore’s Ghost

by Jason Miller

November 3rd, 4th & 5th at 7:30pm

You’ll laugh, and you’ll cry as you are masterfully guided through triumphs and heartaches of legendary John Barrymore who is synonymous with American theatre and film, and of course, Hamlet.

When “Barrymore’s Ghost” landed in Jud Harmon’s hands shortly before he shipped out for deployment to Iraq it became the rock that got him through tough times. Having researched John Barrymore years earlier for the role in “I Hate Hamlet” it didn’t take long at all for him to identify with the ”Hollyweird” legend.

“Barrymore’s Ghost” is the bittersweet tale of John Barrymore, a larger than life actor, but also a flawed human. Not only was he the first box office star, but he was also the first nationally known movie star. And it is widely recognized that he was the first of his kind to grapple with national fame, and all its trappings.

Edward Mast’s Jungalbook

by Edward Mast

2011 August 18th & 19th 7:00pm 20th 2pm

Set deep in a jungle of India, Jungalbook tells the classic story of Mowgli, the human child who is raised by wolves. He is befriended by Baloo the bear and kept under the watchful eye of Bagheera, the lone panther. We follow Mowgli as he learns that he is not actually a wolf but instead a human who must defend himself against Sherakhan, the fearsome tiger who killed his parents. When Mowgli finally meets Sherakhan face-to-face he uses rope stolen from a nearby village to defend himself which is against jungle law. He is forced to choose between defying jungle law and facing the consequences, or leaving the jungle forever.
