The New York Times says “The Acting Company endures as the major touring classical theater company in the United States.”
On consecutive nights in Oswego, they attempt a daring artistic long-jump from the Bard’s masterpiece of Hamlet to Tom Stoppard’s witty revisioning Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead

In preparation for International Women’s Day on March 8, Unsinkable Women: Stories and Songs from the Titanic is performed by actor and writer Deborah Jean Templin. It is a play about women from diverse backgrounds who survived the Titanic and went on to live notable lives. They contributed to the continuing struggles for women’s rights and emancipation in the United States. Based on actual diaries, letters and interviews Unsinkable Women brings to life these famous figures including Madeline Astor (the beautiful teenage bride of John Jacob Astor, one of the wealthiest men in America) and Margaret Tobin Brown – the “Unsinkable Molly” herself – whose account of the Titanic’s final moments brings the evening to its dramatic climax.

New York City’s award-winning multidisciplinary performance company, Third Rail Projects, creates Anthem, a new site-specific dance/theater work for Fort Ontario. Drawing upon the fort’s architecture and history, Anthem is a haunting rumination on invasion, surrender, desire and defense. It blurs the boundaries of national, geographic and personal identities by posing the question “Who exactly is protecting whom and from what”
