Threads Theatre

August 11th – August 20th
Four live theatre performances of an original play, inspired by the traditions and values that have woven us together both in Troy and as a nation of immigrants. The play Threads will deliver meaningful-and sometimes musical-entertainment for, by, and about members of our diverse community. Unlike the typical theatre experience where audiences remain stationary around one stage, audiences at Threads will move in and out of the Village buildings during the 50-minute performance, as profound and hilarious tales about journeys and friendship unfold before their eyes. We (the Troy Historical Society) are gathering stories from first generation immigrants from many countries to use with material we have from Troy’s early pioneers as source material for the play, which will be professionally produced. The play is titled Threads because it will be woven from pieces or threads of stories that relate the challenges, hopes, frustrations, and commonalities of people who have moved to a new place.

August 11 at 7pm Special Opening Night Gala: Wear Your Best Threads! Troy Historical Society Members Only! Includes afterglow with food provided by our friends at the Nosh Pit (a Do-Good Food Truck) and wine, plus “Talk-Back” with Director.

August 12 and 19th at 7pm and August 20th at 3pm: Includes “Talk-Back” with performers and/or playwrights.
