This contest runs now through October 1, and the first 10 families to complete it will receive a free movie ticket to Aviation Mall in addition to the primary prize.
Adirondack Theatre Festival Announces New Producing Artistic Director
The Adirondack Theatre Festival was undoubtedly sad to lose former Producing Artistic Director Chad Rabinovitz (who is now running the new and super cool Candy Space in the Lake George outlets). But, the impressive Miriam Weisfeld has stepped up to the plate.
“Miriam emerged from a great field of candidates, partially because of her command of the contemporary issues in American theater around inclusion, audience development, and innovation, ” ATF Board President Nancy Fuller said in a statement. “And she also presented the board a clear vision for producing work that is a continuation of ATF’s rich history of entertaining audiences with original stories created and performed by superlative talent.”
Weisfeld previously served as Director of Artistic Development for the Tony-winning Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis. She officially assumes her new position on September 1, but is in Glens Falls now through the 15th for the Traffic and Weather production. Weisfield and her family have done business in the region and are familiar with the area.
