ADK Shakespeare is very pleased to offer mainstage programming again this autumn. We are proud to present Shakespeare’s lively comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, for the first time. Alongside Shrew, join us for a celebratory run of Macbeth, which honors our first summer season in 2010.

Join us for a special Farm-to-Table Reception on Friday, October 3 starting at 6:00 p.m. followed by a performance of Macbeth at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are available from the Whallonsburg Grange Hall for just $12, $6 for anyone under 18. Celebrate local Adirondack farmers, brewers, and artisan food crafters at the pre-performance reception for only $6.

Saturday, October 4, enjoy Shakespeare’s battle-of-the-sexes as you’ve never seen it before: The Taming of the Shrew with the Induction fully intact. Join us at the Strand Theater in Schroon Lake and raise a glass of craft beer from our friends at Paradox Brewery with the infamous Christopher Sly.

On Saturday, October 11, we are proud to partner with The Bullhouse in Chestertown for an elegant three-course dinner. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. and the curtain time for Macbeth will be 7:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $52 for adults, $50 for seniors/students/veterans, and include salad, dinner, dessert, and admission to Macbeth. The ticket price will go up to $55 at the door, so call (518) 803-HARK to make your reservation now. Seating will be limited to 50 guests. Reservations strongly recommended.
