Inspired by Federico Fellini's 'Nights of Cabiria', with a tuneful, mid-1960s score by Cy Coleman, sparkling lyrics by Dorothy Fields including “Big Spender,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “I’m a Brass Band” and “Baby, Dream Your Dream”, and a hilarious book by Neil Simon...

The THE BAND Band presents
Friday & Saturday at 8:00 pm Showtime
Recorded in Woodstock 51 years ago right here on the site of the original Woodstock Playhouse, STAGE FRIGHT was The Band’s third studio album, featuring two of its best-known songs, “The Shape I’m In” and the eponymous
“Stage Fright” both of which became staples at the Canadian-American group’s live shows. While the pandemic delayed a true 50th year celebration of the album, The THE BAND Band, (the only nationally touring band dedicated exclusively to the accurate reproduction of The Band's music) is thrilled to bring it back to The Woodstock Playhouse on August 27th and 28th, with authentic, true-to-form renditions of the 10 featured album tracks, and others from an extraordinary repertoire, performed by a band with an incredible pedigree. Don’t miss this deep dive into this legendary roots rock group.
Scott Huffman & the Children's Crusade Company present
Wednesday at 7:00pm; Outdoors
A play by Scott Huffman built around the core value of community and connection, 'Children’s Crusade' is the story of eight kids from Utica, New York who believe one among them to be a prophet. After an inexplicable message from God, it is up to the group to leave the only world they’ve ever known and find Him. It is an ensemble play with music; a hopeful piece about perseverance. As Forbes Magazine says, "Children's Crusade allows us to imagine being bigger than ourselves, united in beauty."

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.
