iTheatre Saratoga's 2019/2020 Season
GUARDIANS OF THE TREASURE
Performances: August 2 at 7:30pm and August 3 & 4 at 2pm
Retracing a journey made in 2016, iTheatre will offer another chance for enchantment. In Guardians of the Treasure, two teenaged girlfriends find a mysterious book that illuminates the elements of good and evil and how one force may overcome the other when ineluctable rebellion breaks out. The girls come to a new understanding of life, love, and the infinite capacity of the human spirit on their spiritual voyage to a realm far, far away. Based on the book by Saratoga's Dr. Selma Nemer and her granddaughter Gabrielle, and adapted/directed by Mary Jane Hansen, this production of Guardians of the Treasure will be presented at St. Clements School at 231 Lake Avenue in Saratoga Springs, NY.
2019 YOUTH THEATRE WORKSHOP
iTheatre Saratoga's summer youth workshop returns! Feeling stuck… in time? Do things seem… alien? Do you feel… invisible? Having to contend with… talking animals on a remote island run by a mad scientist? If you know a young person who can answer yes to any of these questions, ship them off to iTheatre Saratoga for this year's youth workshop. Friends of H.G. Wells: A Sci-Fi Support Group will mine the canons of the famous science fiction author. Once again, the performance project for 9-16 year olds sets out to explore a variety of social issues affecting our youth, push the boundaries of theatre, and incorporate the insights of iTheatre's young collaborators. Starting July 29 with a week of playwriting and improvisation, the second week will focus on rehearsals culminating with two special performances featuring the workshop participants. It’s sure to be another zany adventure with a great time had by all. A nominal enrollment fee of $400 is charged per/student for the two-week program, with scholarships and reduced rates for households with multiple children available, funded in part by Stewart’s Shops’ Holiday Match Program. Call us at 518-587-5827 for program information and to reserve a place in the workshop. Admission to the showcase on August 9 at 7:30pm and August 10 at 2pm is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. .

Step through the doors of the theater at Saratoga Arts and into Pontypool, Ontario: population 2,408 and rapidly dwindling. When the sleepy town is hit with a devastating and mysterious epidemic, shock jock Grant Mazzy and the staff at the local radio station must ask, “Is this more fake news?” As reports of escalating violence in the streets pour in, tensions rise in the basement studio where Mazzy continues to broadcast. Based on Pontypool Changes Everything, the cult horror novel-turned-film-turned-radio play by Tony Burgess, this suspenseful and gory stage adaptation merges thoughtful semiotic satire with America’s zombie obsession. And leaves us wondering if our words will, in fact, pronounce the end of humanity. Tickets for Pontypool are $25 for adults, and $15 for students
AN AGATHA CHRISTIE WORLD PREMIERE
Performances: Jan 24, 25, 31 & Feb 1 at 7:30pm and Jan 26 & Feb 2 at 2pm
travel back in time and thousands of miles from home in the new year in order to answer two burning questions: Who is the murderer in iTheatre’s next World Premiere Agatha Christie mystery? And which iconic story has the latest adaptation evolved from? It’s no secret that last season’s debut professional production of Christie’s The Stranger was a huge success, and the demand for more of Dame Agatha’s lesser-known works has been duly noted. Stay tuned for more clues. Performances take place at Saratoga Arts in 2020!
