Westchester Collaborative Theater 

Presents “A Taste of WCT” June 17

A Savory Sampling of Scenes and Monologues


Ossining, NY – On Saturday, June 17 at 2 pm, Westchester Collaborative Theater (WCT) of Ossining will present A Taste of WCT. The event will be held at the Camille Budarz Theater, Ossining Public Library, 53 Croton Ave., Ossining, NY.

This will be a unique opportunity to get a free glimpse into the savory menu of offerings from Westchester’s only ensemble theater company devoted exclusively to developing new works for the stage by local playwrights and performed by skilled actors from Westchester and the surrounding region.

Slated for performance are a selection of works that evolved from WCT’s play development workshops— a scene or two from Lot’s Wife, a full-length play written by Albi Gorn and directed by Karina Ramsey that had its debut as WCT’s mainstage production this past March; a scene or two from Lardo, a book in hand reading of the full-length play written by Sydney Blake and directed by Nathan Flower that had its debut as WCT’s fall reading last December; three monologues running the gamut from insightful comedy to poignant drama that were directed by Alan Lutwin and performed in WCT’s Cries & Whispers: Nine Monologues last June; and a scene or two from The Maltese Babka, a book in hand reading of the full-length homage to film noir written by C.J. Ehrlich, directed by Christopher Arena that had its debut as WCT’s spring reading in May. Seating is general admission for this library theater event.

The WCT member actors performing will include: Julie Griffin, Donna James, James Leeper, Joe Albert Lima, Lynne Marcus, Pat O’Neill, and Suzanne Ochs.

The Westchester Collaborative Theater is a multicultural, cooperative theater company located in Ossining, NY, dedicated to developing new work for the stage and bringing live theater to the community.
