A weekend of theater and exploration awaits-at an Adirondack Great Camp once owned by the Vanderbilts Raquette Lake, N.Y. - The Adirondack Summer Playhouse wraps its season Aug. 23-25 with a Grand Finale Weekend, featuring four theatrical performances and a two-night stay at Great Camp Sagamore in Raquette Lake, N.Y. Along with opportunities for hiking, swimming and canoeing, the weekend will feature productions of:
- "Cabaret." Set in Berlin in 1931, the show takes place in a modern "Spiegeltent," an Austrian mirrored circus tent offering classic German beer and food. The Tony Award winning musical focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
- "Macbeth." In this hour-long outdoor adaptation of Shakespeare's classic thriller, six performers play all the roles, blending inventive physicality, evocative design and original text to create a mesmerizing and chilling tale of greed and ambition.
- "Songs for a New World." Travel from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters, ranging from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage.
- "Shrek The Musical." Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film that started it all, "Shrek the Musical" brings the hilarious story of everyone's favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage. The story is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun.
