2011 marks the third year for Airmid’s free Summer Theatre Festival, which opens on July 5th with the family series production of JACK AND THE PRINCESS WHO NEVER LAUGHED by Kate Freiligrath-Kroeker, Directed by Ellen Distasi. The play, based on an old Russian folk tale, runs approximately 55 minutes with audience participation; for ages 5 and up. In this play you will experience unusual characters and even a talking swan who shows Jack the way to a magical life. Performances begin on Tuesday July 5 and can be seen Mondays – Fridays at 1:00 pm. (New York State Parking fees apply prior to 4 pm) through July 22nd. 14 chances to see the show! Opening on July 27th, the second production of the festival is the feisty new translation of A LITTLE BETRAYAL AMONG FRIENDS by Caridad Svich, freely adapted and translated from Maria de Zayas y Sotomayor’s comedy La Traicion en la amistad. This mature themed play is a fabulously funny romp where Shakespeare meets “Sex and the City”.

Funding support also provided by the Angela and Scott Jaggar Foundation for the Airmid family series, and Astoria Federal Saving Bank, JP Morgan Chase Bank, the Nissequogue River State Parks Foundation.
