New Ways to Access the Whole Season!
Theater Company at Hubbard Hall 2014-2015
With a different play being read almost every day as part of our Winter Carnival, we know you’ll want to return again and again. Full-season Subscribers or Three Play Package purchasers can access the entire festival, going every day if they like (subject to availability). Everyone else will need to buy another ticket if they want another ride at our Carnival. Not yet a Subscriber? Don’t worry – you have options:
Trade in your Putnam County Purchase towards a Full Season Subscription
Don’t miss out – for a limited time you can trade in your 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee ticket towards a full Subscription (with your Putnam ticket price going towards the original $88 price of a full subscription). Call 518-677-2495 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to trade up to a subscription.
If you haven’t already become a Subscriber, here’s a great new way to hook into the rest of the season at still a great price: Our new Three Play Package. For just $69 you get the entire Winter Carnival of New Work, Tartuffe AND An Iliad (a savings of $12 off the full price).
This is a season of firsts – my first season as Artistic Director, our first Tony-Award winning musical comedy, first Winter Carnival of New Work, first Tartuffe and first ever Greek classic. I hope you’ll join us for this amazing journey – and tell your friends. It’s going to be a very fun ride.

In The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee by William Finn and Rachel Sheinkin, six young people learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. This hilarious tale of overachievers’ angst chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. This is a great show for the whole family, as you laugh along with this quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

Tartuffe (or the Hypocrite) is Molière’s comedic masterpiece. Meet Orgon and Tartuffe, one a bit of a fool and the other a total fraud! When the wealthy Orgon brings home Tartuffe, his family quickly smells a rat. But can they stop Tartuffe from stealing everything and reveal the truth in time? Or is Orgon destined to lose it all? This wickedly funny farce will keep you guessing – and laughing – the whole way through to the end.
A great story. An epic journey. A tour-de-force performance.
