10th ANNIVERSARY SEASON
of the Summer Theatre Festival Revival and the Reopening of
THE RENOWNED WOODSTOCK PLAYHOUSE
Thank you to our 2020 Theatre Festival Sponsors, the community leaders who sustain and care for the Woodstock Playhouse and our community during this time of COVID-19 shut down and always.
Please frequent their businesses to show your appreciation for their leadership. Click on their ads to follow the link.
This Summer season we are putting the health and safety of our community and artists first.
With that being stated, it is with great sadness that we have to announce that what would have been our 10th anniversary season under the current leadership of the Woodstock Playhouse, our 2020 Summer Theatre Festival has been canceled. While in the upcoming months we may see a change moving us slowly from our isolation to resuming ‘normal’ activities, our concern for the public health and safety has led our board of directors to this unavoidable and unanimous decision.
We are grateful to our summer sponsors, their logos and links posted below, for their continued support; support which will help us, in some part, to maintain the Woodstock Playhouse until the time comes when we feel it is safe to reopen our doors.
A fantastic season was ahead of us; a season which included ‘Anything Goes’, ‘The Will Rogers Follies’, ‘Blithe Spirit’, ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and ‘Cabaret’; all with a magnificent cast, crew and staff assembled, ready and eager for the first day of rehearsal and opening day.
Above all else, we wish you and your loved-ones good health, safety and comfort during this time.
We understand that these are financially difficult times for many, but if you are in a position to be able to show your support during this austere time, a period of time since March, which will amount to at least six months of being dark for the Woodstock Playhouse, we would be ever so grateful. No gift is too small nor too great for you to be recognized as a member of our circle of friends at the iconic Woodstock Playhouse. Along with our sponsors, your name will be posted on both the homepage and donor page of our website, proudly displaying your role in sustaining the longevity of live performances at the Woodstock Playhouse.
Yours in solidarity and with gratitude,
Randy Conti, Executive Director
Diane Stein, President
Douglas Farrell, Company Manager

He studied at the Art Students League in 1954 and 1964, and then on and off for the next decade. Allan has had shower at Ok Harris and Jakendoff Bochi Gallery in SoHo NYC. He’s also shown at General Electric Headquarters , Manhattan College.

His work has also showed at Woodstock Art Association, Hunter Gallery, displayed and loan at the Emerson Resort, an award-winning four-diamond property here in the Hudson valley. Several of his Oil Worker paintings were purchased by Precision Drilling in Houston Texas. Allan is represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson New York.

Elliott Landy, born in 1942, began photographing the anti-Vietnam war movement and the underground music culture in New York City in 1967.
He photographed many of the underground rock and roll superstars, both backstage and onstage, from 1967 to 69.
His images of Bob Dylan and The Band, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Richie Havens, and many others documented the music scene during that classic rock and roll period which culminated with the 1969 Woodstock Festival, of which he was the official photographer.
After that, Elliott moved on to other inspirations and art forms, photographing his own children and travels, creating impressionist flower photographs and doing motion and kaleidoscopic photography in both still and film formats.
His photographs have been published worldwide for many years in all print mediums including covers of Rolling Stone, Life, the Saturday Evening Post, etc. and album covers, calendars, photographic book collections, etc.
He has published Woodstock Vision, The Spirit of A Generation, in book and CD-ROM format, and authored the book Woodstock 69, The First Festival.
He is currently publishing a series of limited edition lithographs of his classic rock photographs. To view and purchase his photographs and merchandise, click here to visit his website.
