Southern Women Takeover the Rivoli Theatre!!
Savannah Sipping Society, a comedic play written by Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten, and Jessie Jones, will be staged by the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop at the Rivoli Theatre in South Fallsburg. The hilarious comedy highlights the lives of four middle-aged, Southern women Randa, Dot, Marlafaye, and Jinx who are all stuck in the redundancy of their lives and, despite their individual issues, strive to become enthusiastic about life again.
Directed by Harold Tighe and produced by Lillian Tighe, the play features Felice Schwed (Jinx), Ellen Pavloff (Randa), Heather Straus (Marlafaye), Lynne Porter (Dot), and Constance Slater (Grandmother). The creative team includes Jim Schmidt (Technical Director), Heather Strauss (Costume Designer), and Harold Tighe (Set Designer).
Performances are September 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, and 22 at the Rivoli Theatre at 5243 Route 42 Main Street in South Fallsburg. Tickets are $18, $15 for seniors (60 and over), students (with valid ID), and military/veterans and will be available at the door one hour prior to curtain for each performance. Tickets can also be purchased online in advance.
The Review is in from meetmeinthegreenroom.com:
Into the Woods is one of Stephen Sondheim’s most beloved musicals. It intertwines the stories of some of our most memorable childhood fairy tale characters, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood for example, and turns them on their heads, creating a new fairy tale in its own right. The music is memorable, the book is quite witty, and the characters have tons of heart.
Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop’s production of this iconic musical allowed for some of the minor characters to shine, primarily Jack’s Mother and the Princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince as they are named in the dramatis personae. As Jack’s Mother, Alexa Marie Fini is astonishing, and, sadly, very underused. Her voice is incredible and she has a commanding stage presence. I just wish we got to see more of her. As the Princes, Ethan Perkoski and Braeden Ross, are delightful. They were synchronized, comedic and had just the right blend of being, dare I say, charming, and slightly egotistical. The cast as a whole put forth great effort, with the chemistry between players coming through, especially Lourdesa Hunt and Kristopher Rosengrant as the Baker’s Wife and the Baker. And a special kudos to Ms. Hunt for covering an increasingly awkward moment in such a way that had me, literally, crying with laughter.
Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop’s production of Into the Woods at the Rivoli Theatre in South Fallsburg continues its run this weekend, July 16th-18th. For more information and tickets, visit

Brittany Pierce-Caiazza’s Review of A Bright New Boise
July 12, 2019
Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop
The Rivoli Theatre
Josh Rosengrant, in his first full-length directorial debut, should be nothing short of proud of the production he has crafted of Samuel D. Hunter’s A Bright New Boise. He has assembled a very capable cast, designed a truly recognizable and believable set, and presented a production that literally has people talking days later. Kudos, Josh!
A Bright New Boise is an odd little play, one that has an ending left open to interpretation and discussion. Its synopsis is as follows: “A disgraced evangelical from Northern Idaho takes a job at a Hobby Lobby franchise in Boise, Idaho, in order to reconnect with an estranged son. But as his fellow employees begin to uncover dark secrets from his past, and his son becomes increasingly interested in his reasons for leaving his church, he must choose whether or not to have a normal life and a healthy relationship with his son, or hold onto the beliefs that have given his life meaning.” This said, there is a deeper discussion to be seen regarding relationships and perceptions we as humans have with strangers, and those within our own chosen circles. A Bright New Boise may be a little heavy-handed on the faith aspects, but it touches soundly on the humanity aspects, something that is of serious import in today’s world.
As Will, our disgraced evangelical, Keith Prince is a discomforting combination of unsure, quiet, and bubbling rage. He struggles to find balance within the character, but when he hits his stride, he is flying high. As his estranged son, Alex, Cole Phillips is every bit the angsty teen, down to the earbuds protruding from his sweatshirt and his nonchalant treatment of those around him. Teri Schwartz as Pauline, the stressed-out, conflict-resolution-phobic manager of Hobby Lobby, is just like a boss we’ve all had; she is believable and enjoyable. Kristopher Rosengrant as LeRoy is likable as the doting older brother and protector of Alex. He is most convincing when he is arguing with others, but you do truly feel his compassion for those around him. As Anna, Mekayla Rayne is a fast-talking, nervous whirlwind of energy. She has some of the more entertaining moments, and she embraces her role as the inner conscience of the show; she says what the audience is thinking and what you would imagine the other characters are feeling. This is truly an ensemble piece, and this cast works together flawlessly. You can tell they trust each other, and will work to make each other shine.
Was this a perfect production? No. There were microphone issues which left the audience straining to hear, and the final scene was a touch overdramatic (or was it? Perhaps this was to prompt audience discussion, which it has successfully done), but overall, the lighting was appropriate and the sound effects made sense. This is one of the best productions I have seen at the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop. Congrats to the cast and crew.
Performances are slated for Friday and Saturday, July 12, 13, 19, 20 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, July 14, 21 at 2:00 pm at the Rivoli Theatre, 5243 Route 42 (Main Street), South Fallsburg. Tickets are $15 for Adults, $12 for Seniors (60+), Students (with Valid ID), Military/Veterans. A Bright New Boise is being produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. and is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance.

Will- Keith Prince
Pauline- Teri Schwartz
Alex- Cole Phillips
Leroy- Kristopher Rosengrant
Anna- Mekayla Perneszi
In the bleak, corporate break room of a craft store in Idaho, someone is summoning The Rapture. Will, who has fled his rural hometown after a scandal at his Evangelical church, comes to the Hobby Lobby, not only for employment, but also to rekindle a relationship with Alex, his brooding teenager, whom he gave up for adoption several years ago. Alex works there along with Leroy, his adopted brother and protector, and Anna, a hapless young woman who reads bland fiction but hopes for dramatic endings. As their manager, foul-mouthed Pauline, tries ceaselessly to find order (and profit) in the chaos of small business, these lost souls of the Hobby Lobby confront an unyielding world through the beige-tinted impossibility of modern faith. Samuel D. Hunter's “A Bright New Boise” is an earnest comedy about the meager profits of modern faith.
Join us for an evening of short plays, including 3 locally written original works!!

SCDW's 'Rabbit Hole' to go to Statewide Competition
The Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole staged at the Rivoli Theatre in July has been chosen to go on to Statewide competition at the Theatre Association of New York State (TANYS) Festival in Auburn, New York. In preparation for Festival and in order to offset the costs associated with taking the show to statewide competition, a dress rehearsal is being opened to the public for one night only – Wednesday, November 14th at the Sullivan County Museum in Hurleyville. If you missed this powerful production in July, you have one more opportunity to catch it now – if you’ve seen it already, come see it again – and help the Cast and Crew on their way to Festival.
Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rabbit Hole is an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty. Becca and Howie Corbett had a picture-perfect family life in the suburbs of New York until a random, tragic accident took the life of their four-year old son. Rabbit Hole delves into the complexity of a family navigating deep grief and learning what it means to try and regain a meaningful life with a re-defined sense of “normal.”
The production staged in July earned TANYS awards for Excellence in Direction (Lori Schneider), Excellence in Technical Direction (Jim Schmidt) and Excellence in Ensemble Acting to the Cast (Terri Mateer, John Neails, Taylor Lamerand, Carol Macadam, Cole Phillips). In preparation for their Festival performance, the Workshop is opening its final dress rehearsal of this award-winning production. In addition to seeing the performance, audience members will experience a taste of the Festival requirements as everyone in the cast and crew and every item (set pieces, props, costumes) have to start in a 10 x 10 square “backstage,” be set in 10 minutes, and then after the final curtain call, the set must be struck and return to the 10 x 10 square in 10 minutes. The Cast and Crew will be rehearsing this as well as the show itself in order to prepare for their Festival performance the weekend of November 16th. For a unique theatre experience and the opportunity to help defray the cost of Rabbit Hole going to the TANYS Festival, don’t miss this one night only show, Wednesday, November 14th at 7:00 pm. All tickets are $10 and will be available at the door at the Sullivan County Museum, 265 Main Street, Hurleyville. For additional information, log onto www.SCDW.net or phone (845) 436-5336.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Rabbit Hole”!!

Nevermore (a new musical)
Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop 2018
By William A Brenner
POE'S "NEVERMORE" IS A TERRIFYING SHOW
WITH SCARY SOUND EFFECTS, HAUNTING MUSIC
AND FRIGHTENING CREATURES - AND FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
"NEVERMORE" is a frightening show intended to scare, and keep the audience surprised and laughing. The kids loved it, pointing and screaming at the characters and the creatures, the exaggerated sound effects, haunted house music and frightening creatures who suddenly appeared onstage, above the stage, and in the aisles.
The show "NEVERMORE" was described as the imaginary life and mysterious death of the scariest of writers, Edgar Allan Poe. His famous raven was portrayed as a six-foot feathered raven wandered about the theatre quoting "NEVERMORE".
This difficult show was another ensemble success presented by the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop at its brightly lit Rivoli theatre in South Fallsburg.
Edgar Allan Poe was played by a haunted Shawn Bailey, forever lost in his bizarre thoughts, wearing a wig of black feathers. About fourteen actors kept switching roles and transforming into creatures.
The choreography by Mekayla Perneszi and the cast extended the stage into the audience.
The set crew builders, technical director, lighting and sound design, led by Jim Schmidt, particularly with its sound effects thunder and lightning kept the audience jumping. Especially chilling was the side view of a woman in a coffin box being carried off to the crypt, kicking, clawing and screaming inside the coffin.
But special acclaim in this ensemble production must go to the PIT - under Musical Director/Pianist Leon Hilfstein, Percussionist Bill Margagal, and Lee Scheumann, who banged away on the bass drums, eerie flutist Kerry Malony, and violinist Laura Baci-Clark (who played like a screechy blackboard).
Leon Hilfstein's electric keyboard effects were other worldly.
On opening night, the theatre was almost full. And almost half of the audience were children, young and old, happily waiting to get their pants scared off.
Across Sullivan County, the Forestburgh Playhouse continued its wonderful, big production musical shows. But the creative members of the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop continue to compete in a different way. Something like the Yankees and the Mets.
For example, the Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop's month-long July 2018 offering was the somber production of "Rabbit Hole", showing the devastating irreconcilable effects caused by the accidental death of a four year old, and an opioid death of an older relative. July was "Bereaved Parents Month".
"NEVERMORE" offers something hilarious, scary, weird and fun for the family. Performances run through August 17th and 18th at 8PM and Sunday at 2PM (Future 2018 productions are September's "The Games A Foot", October's "Haunted Theatre Tours", and December's "1940s Radio Holiday Shows", at the Rivoli Theatre, located at 5243 Main Street, South Fallsburg, NY. For ticket information call (845) 436-5336.
This unique and wildly theatrical musical combines haunting music and poetic storytelling to chronicle the fascinating life of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. A literary rock star of his day, Poe struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produces some of the world's most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore explores the events that shape Poe's character and career, blurring the line between fact and fiction--after all, as Poe himself writes, "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."
