Ancram Opera House Opens 5th Anniversary Season with REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES: REDUX Saturday June 27 at 8PM

 

A Virtual Event Celebrating Five Years of Authentic Storytelling by Local Residents

Ancram Opera House will open its fifth anniversary season on Saturday, June 27 with a special, free edition of REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES: REDUX, the storytelling event that has been a signature part of every AOH season since the theatre opened its doors in 2015. Audiences can register to view REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES for free at https://www.ancramoperahouse.org/real-people-real-stories-redux-2020. The event will be viewable until August 31.

REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES: REDUX will be streamed virtually at ancramoperahouse.org and feature some of the most memorable personal narratives shared over the years by local residents. The storytellers are:

  • Jan Hopkins, Gallatin, with a story about escaping Czechoslovakia during the Russian invasion of 1968.
  • Brett LaFave, Albany, with a story about a misguided bungee jumping adventure.
  • Debby Mayer, formerly of Hudson, now San Diego, with a story about driving west for one more adventure.
  • Mark Senak, with a story about an unexpected journey to Manassas Battlefield Park.

Paul Ricciardi, AOH Co-Director and Assistant Professor, City University of New York – Kingsborough CC, curates and directs the series.  “We’re proud of the way our community has embraced REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES during the past five years,” Ricciardi said.  “We’ve done 10 REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES productions, featured 35 local storytellers, each with an amazing tale to tell, and expanded the concept by hosting six storytelling workshops at local libraries and community centers. And we’ll be teaching storytelling at the Taconic Hills Central School District Middle School in the fall.”

Ancram Opera House in southern Columbia County is an intimate showcase for fresh, contemporary work by visionary theater and musical artists, where audiences can connect with performers in immersive, immediate ways. For more information visit www.ancramoperahouse.org.
