Hubbard Hall is now accepting Playbill submissions for the 2024/25 Season!

We would like to announce that Hubbard Hall has decided to bring back our Playbill after taking a hiatus since the pandemic.  The refreshed playbill will include expanded sponsorship levels to support the exciting events we are scheduling and planning for 2024.

It was wonderful to see the hall full of patrons last year after having reduced attendance at classes and events due to Covid. The impact on the hall and community was challenging. But we are back and eager to bring an exciting schedule of events to our campus. Here are some of our events planned for spring and summer 2024.

  • Opera is Back – May 19th at 3pm – Barn Opera of Vermont has put together a program of operatic favorites.
  • Durham County Poets a Canadian blues band from Quebec will perform their first concert at Hubbard Hall June 1st at 6:30pm
  • Music from Salem will perform a summer concert series June 2nd & 9th and July 7th & 21st
  • Larry Ham, a renowned NY jazz pianist with the Woody Witt Quartet will perform July 13th at 7pm for the first time at Hubbard Hall.
  • Summer classes for children of all ages including theater and arts programs begin July15th.

We are also planning summer Shakespeare in the Park, a theater production in the Fall and bringing back some community favorites like Coig, Hot Club Saratoga, Seagle Music Festival, the December holiday breakfast and much more.

Over 600 students of all ages enjoy classes all year long learning theater dance, drawing, fitness, and improv to name just a few and over 2,000 audience members attend events throughout the year.

We have stood by our commitment to actively support the artist community as well as grow Hubbard Hall’s connections in the arts. This year we will continue to support our partnership with Bushwick Starr hosting artist Misha Chowdhury in October and Modesto Jimenez in December both participating in a week-long artist residency. We are actively investing in our historic campus to grow our offerings in 2024 and beyond, including installing artist housing in the Lovejoy building as part of a major capital project with a tentative target opening in August 2024 and enhancing our sound system in the hall.

But we need your support to maintain these endeavors.

Like many arts non-profits today, Hubbard Hall currently operates at a deficit. This is where supporters like you quite literally make all the difference. We rely on consistent donations to keep the staffing, building maintenance, electricity, heating, phones, and supplies behind the scenes at Hubbard Hall covered. Covering these operating expenses makes the numbers we are so proud of above possible.

Supporting the arts provides our community with so many benefits and rewards. Local arts help drive our economy by giving our close neighbors and visitors from far away the opportunity to explore our community and visit businesses like yours. The arts make our lives joyous and support our wellbeing. Places like Hubbard Hall, where all ages, walks of life, and artistic tastes can gather to see theater, to hear music, to see our children triumph, are precious. Neighbors catching up during an intermission. The parking lot at our Beacon Feed Studio filling up with parents’ cars and children running to the studio doors excited to learn the next piece of choreography. These moments strengthen our community.

Our Playbill/Season Brochure will again be our traditionally sized program, 5.5” by 8.5” to help us distribute more of them at every event and performance we offer. It will again contain fun, informative articles about Hubbard Hall and the history of our community, guaranteed to reach a larger audience and be looked at again and again. The brochure features more articles about current offerings and other businesses found in and around our region, as well as a village map, making this an invaluable resource guide for residents and visitors alike. The Playbill is being designed by Sara Kelly Graphics. We can offer ad design for free – let us know if you’d like to take advantage of this. Even better, if you were in our Playbill before, we can re-use the same ad design for you if you prefer.
