Skidmore Theater Presents: Virginia Woolf’s Orlando

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013


Beginning this Friday, the Skidmore Theater Department will present its Spring black box presentation, an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, “a journey of self-discovery as Orlando lives as a duke, a duchess, a lover, an ambassador, a wife, and a poet. This play lovingly asks us to embrace who we are at any moment, and challenges us to imagine who we may become next.”  The play is adapted by Sarah Ruhl and directed by seniors Jeremy Ohringer and Kathryn Rickman, with set and costume design by Julia Bilbao and Nicole Dancel (also seniors).

Tickets are $8 for students and seniors and $12 for general admission. For reservations, call (518) 580-5439 or email

Theater Dept. Presents: Passion Play

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Gee, that guy looks a little cross

In case you missed the first run before Thanksgiving break, award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play is back tomorrow night, for an additional four performances. Presented by the Skidmore Theater Department, Passion Play is a “bold, funny and poignant expression of the intersection of religion and politics:”

The play takes us behind the scenes of three communities in different eras of time who are attempting to stage the death of Christ. Charles Isherwood, writing in The New York Times, notes, “The travails of performing in the ancient Christian drama of the title are a recurring theme in Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play, an epic-length but light-spirited romp through several centuries of religious pageantry, individual morality and global politics. <Scope>

Performances at the JKB Theater are on December 1, 2, and 3, all starting at 7:30pm. There will also be a Sunday matinee performance on December 4 starting at 2pm. Tickets are $8 for students and senior citizens, and $12 for the general public. For reservations, call the SkidmoreTheater Box Office at (518) 580-5439 or email
