Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education in Cambridge, N. Y. offers programs in music, art, dance and theatre. Last year, under the direction of David Snider, the new Executive and Artistic Director, a Winter Carnival of New Works was begun. The Carnival highlighted new plays through readings and performances at different stages of their creation. One of these was the beginnings of a musical folktale, created by Maizy Scarpa and Clara Strauch. This has now been developed into a full production with Maizy and Clara and Abigail Wahl. The show opens on Friday, November 6 and will run weekends through November 29. Hubbard Hall’s ticket prices are reasonable and they have special rates for students and groups.
Bob and I have enjoyed Maizy’s work as an actress and a director and were impressed to see another aspect of her talents. She, Clara and David Snider talked with us about the work and about its future performances. To see the launching of a new work is most exciting. As David points out the audience is also a part of this creation so don’t miss it.
