Word Plays: Storytelling at Proctors
Our Fifth Season in The Fenimore Gallery: 2011-2012

Sundays at 2:00 pm   $16   Free Parking

(redeemable at Proctor's Box Office)
groups of 8 or more pay only $8 per ticket at the Box Office

If you're one of those people who lingers in your car long after reaching a destination just to hear the end of Garrison Keillor's "The News from Lake Wobegon" or Ira Glass on "This American Life," then Word Plays may be for you.

At Word Plays, superb performers tell rarely heard contemporary and traditional stories about being human. You will discover that Word Plays is a shared experience between the audience and the performer, combining the intensity of a solo performer with the intimacy of a face-to-face conversation.

Each show has its own theme where each story told relates to that theme.

Enjoy the arts in The Fenimore Gallery as the exhibitions and the stories change over the course of the year. Wine, beer and soda are available at the cash bar before the show starts and during intermission. After the show, you can meet the performers. The Gallery is on the second floor above the Box Office, accessible by stairs or elevator.
