Riggs Theatre 37 to Stage Mary Zimmerman’s The Secret in the Wings, December 12-17, 2017
Stockbridge, MA – December 7, 2017: Riggs Theatre 37 is excited to announce this year’s December production: Mary Zimmerman’s The Secret in the Wings will be performed Tuesday, December 12 through Sunday, December 17, nightly at 7:30 p.m. in the intimate Riggs Theatre 37, located at 37 Main Street in Stockbridge on the second floor.
Director Kevin G. Coleman, who also serves as the director of education at Shakespeare & Company, remarks, “‘Secrets’ is very much an ensemble piece. These lesser-known fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm have given us much to play with, much to argue about, and much to be appalled and delighted by. It’s deliciously complex and has provoked many lengthy discussions, arguments, and mutinies. What fun!”
Part of the Activities Program, Riggs Theatre 37 provides an opportunity for patients to explore some of their strengths through involvement in twice-yearly productions (spring and fall). The immersive ten-week process includes reading scripts, selecting a play, working through rehearsals, and staging several performances for the general public.
The production is open to the public and runs Tuesday, December 12 through Sunday, December 17, 2017 with nightly performances at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for the general public, $10 for students and seniors. To reserve tickets, call 413.298.5519 ext. 5606.
