This month, Performing Arts of Woodstock presents veteran comic actors Audrey Rapoport and James Judd, in “Funny Stories,” a series of humorous vignettes. Former members of the famous Los Angeles sketch comedy group the Groundlings, Judd and Rapoport bring a hilarious array of characters to life in “Funny Stories,” from a harried Republican Town Hall organizer stalling for a tardy Richard Nixon, to a boozy ex-Mouseketeer determined to get through her nightclub act before being thrown out of Disneyland, to the challenges of pledging the sorority Kappa Delta Fang. Wigs included at no extra charge. January 27 & 28 at 7pm; January 29 at 3pm. Kleinert/James Arts Center, Woodstock. $20/$25. (845) 679-7900; www.performingartsofwoodstock.org
