Word Plays: Storytelling at Proctors
Our Sixth Season in The Fenimore Gallery: 2012-2013
Sundays at 2:00 pm $16 Free Parking
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.
Twenty performers, 17 from Story Circle and 3 from
Children at the Well (youth storytellers for peace and understanding), will be telling during this season.
At each Word Play, eight 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.
$2 of each ticket is donated to the Schenectady Inner City Ministry Summer Lunch
program where they feed 850 children each day.
