Description

Please join us on Sunday December 11 at 7:00 pm as we kick-off our 2023 Theater season with
a benefit concert featuring jazz legend Houston Person. The ticket price is $50 per person and
includes the concert, craft beer and light hors d’oeuvres. Your gift to The Schoolhouse Theater
will be matched 1 to 1 and will provide the critical support necessary to support our reopening.
The event will be held at the beautiful and newly renovated Hygrade Market at 10 Front Street in
Croton Falls, NY. Please RSVP by December 8 at.

The Schoolhouse Theater, Westchester’s oldest professional company, is opening its doors again
with a new season of exceptional performances. It’s been a difficult last few years, of course, and
The Schoolhouse Theater, while shuttered like so many others, has shown its grit and
determination with more than 100 Zoom performances during the pandemic. That, of course, is
reason enough to bust out a celebratory bottle of champagne to honor the actors and audiences
who kept our spirits up, our sense of humanity, hope, and purpose alive during those difficult
times, and who grew in size to a subscriber list of more than 7,000 audience members.

We all know what gratitude for such gritty resilience feels like. Now’s the time, however, to
marshal and focus a new form of gratitude, in practical ways that will enable The Schoolhouse
Theater to complete its first, post-pandemic season of live performances that includes the
following:

* A revival of the Tony-award winning play Red, by John Logan, about the abstract-
expressionist painter Mark Rothko.

* The world premiere of Grant and Twain, by Elizabeth Diggs—about the surprising
relationship between two unlikely friends: Ulysses S. Grant and Samuel L. Clemens.

* Joan Ross Sorkin’s (mis)Understanding Mammy, about the remarkable life of Hattie
McDaniel, the first African-American to win an Academy Award.

We thank you as always for support! For tickets, call 914-473-7111 or go to [email protected]
