Adirondack Theatre Festival is ready to launch the third mainstage production of its 24th season on July 20. The upcoming dramatic comedy is called The Jedi Handbook, a work that asks the age-old question: Does growing older mean you have to grow up?
This coming-of-age story leans heavily on the Star Wars trilogy as a young boy survives growing older with the help of The Force. However, audience members do not need to be Star Wars experts or fans to appreciate the imaginative and nostalgic efforts put forth by award-winning Canadian playwright Stephen Massicotte for this inventive look at childhood. The universal themes make this a winner for everyone.
The play opens July 21 at the Charles R. Wood Theater, located at 207 Glen Street in downtown Glens Falls, and runs through July 27th. A preview performance will take place July 20th, with all shows starting at 7:30 p.m plus a matinee on July 25th. Tickets for play range from $34 to $45, and can be purchased at the Wood Theater Box Office, online at ATFestival.org, or by calling (518) 480-4878.
