Kick back this weekend with memorable music, imaginative theatre, and a bowl of chili.
"Love Letters" at The Beacon
A. R. Gurney’s Broadway hit presents an imaginative unrehearsed piece in which two actors read notes, letters, and cards passed between a couple attempting to keep in touch romantically while physically growing apart. Emmy-award winning daytime producer Thomas DeVilliars directs an impossible love affair in Beacon. Takes place Friday through Sunday.
"Romeo & Juliet" at Bard's Fischer Center
Director Pavol Liska’s decision to call people at random, asking them to recount the well-known tragic love story, reveals how comically little we know about Shakespeare. Performed by members of Nature Theatre of Oklahoma at Bard’s Fischer Center, the play contains eight different interpretations of the romantic original. Friday through Sunday.
17th Annual Chili Bowl Fiesta Fundraiser
The Women’s Studio Workshop will transform the Rosendale Recreation Center into a colorful fiesta to showcase over 800 locally crafted ceramic bowls, tumblers, and mugs of all shapes and sizes. Each purchased item comes with a hearty helping of chili. The event includes live entertainment and raffle drawings. This Saturday.

Geils Band, is known for hits like “Centerfold” and “Freeze Frame.” Wolf has toured and collaborated with groundbreaking rockers like The Velvet Underground, Van Morrison, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, and Aerosmith. He will return to some of his Geils Band gems in Woodstock on Saturday.
Dogwood in Beacon presents the acoustic-based folk rock group with a wistful and autumnal style. Singer and guitarist Kathleen Pemble has been a full-time songwriter for the past seven years; her group is known for winning melodies, strong supple vocals, and carefully crafted songs. This Saturday.
