The Theatre for Good Play Series is a theatre opportunity to bring community together through performance and offers a reason to have a “human experience.”* Our performances are suggested donation for anyone who would like to attend and whatever is collected will be shared with Washington Montessori School (scholarship programs, etc.), specific charities in Litchfield County, and national needs.
I’m also very grateful to WMS for being so welcoming of us and on-board to bring quality plays to the area. Our little towns are so full of talented and cultured folk, those who thirst to perform and those who crave to see. WMS’s beautiful theatre allows great opportunity for performance and audience. We chose “The Cherry Orchard” to begin our series not only because it is a beautiful classic play, but also because there are reflections of our culture and love of the land here in Washington. Then, “Much Ado” to bring attention to issues in 1612 that are still relevant today. Finally, John Cariani’s “Almost, Maine,” is a Valentine of a play about people in a small New England town, experiencing and wrestling with love.
Through these pieces, we have been able to contribute to (so far):
- The Steep Rock Association
- WMS Annual Fund
- Higher Heights
- Emerge America
- Susan B. Anthony Organization
- Everytown for Gun Safety
Next up, keep an eye out for our summer performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in the beautiful open-air Judy Black Park.

“Thank you for coming out tonight and supporting live music. Give yourselves a round of applause: You came out of your homes for a human experience instead of watching YouTube…”
