2nd Annual Shakesbeer Festival

To beer, or not to beer . . . that is the question, and the answer is yes. The Hudson Valley Community Center is bringing back the Shakesbeer Festival on April 18. The festival combines stouts and soliloquies, featuring a 90-minute performance of a modern interpretation of "MacBeth" by the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival's touring company. A beer tasting will be conducted by Alan Daniels, owner of Half Time beer distributors. Audience members have the opportunity to win prizes and test their playwright proficiency in a Shakespeare-themed "Thinking and Drinking" trivia game. A post-show "talk back" will follow the performance with dessert and dessert beers. Light appetizers cooked up by CIA students will also be available. Tickets are $30, $25 for HVCC members, and $15 for patrons under 21. (845) 471-0430; Hvcommunitycenter.com
