Ba-da-da-dam-snap-snap!

 
The Monticello Rotary Club held its July 12, 2016 at the Forestburgh Playhouse.  While there, club members enjoyed a delicious dinner while seeing the fun-filled “The Rhythm is Gonna Getcha!” cabaret.  Afterwards, the club was further entertained by the side-splitting performance of “The Addams Family.” 
Founded in 1947, the Forestburgh Playhouse is the oldest continuously operating professional summer theatre in New York State. Under an agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers, the Playhouse employs professional actors, often with Broadway or other major credits, as well as a company of non-union professionals who earn credit toward their own eventual membership in the Actors’ Equity Association.

The Forestburgh Playhouse operates during the summers only, from mid-June through Labor Day, and offers 3 different types of performance experiences: Broadway musicals and plays on the main stage, a youth theatre production performed at 11 AM on Thursdays and Saturdays, and musical cabaret performances presented with dinner in the adjoining Forestburgh Tavern during the week and a late-night cabaret Friday and Saturday after every evening performance.    
Special thanks to Rotarian Gary Tugender and his lovely wife, Mona, for organizing this special meeting.  In addition, a huge shout out to Rotarian and Forestburgh Playhouse owner Franklin Trapp for being a wonderful host.  And to the cast, crew and staff of the Forestburgh Playhouse – BRAVO!  It is clear why FBPlayhouse is the “Miracle in the Forest!”
