H. G. Fairfield Arts’ Midsummer Mayhem is just one of the many must-see summer theatrical attractions in Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester Counties, and NY’s Mid-Hudson Valley. “We have a wealth of culture and entertainment, talent and the Arts, all around us;” remarks Ms Freston. The Children’s Shakespeare Theater, founded by Diana Green is dedicated to giving young performers “an opportunity to experience Shakespeare’s words and deep understanding of the human experience and to help them to translate their experience to a broader audience of children and adults” Vassar ’52 Grad & a Marine Captain during the Korean War, Kathie Freston remembers “working in summer stock theater as a young college student was a highlight for me growing up. Being able to put Arlo Guthrie on stage for the first time is icing on the cake! Big things can happen on stage in little towns;” she muses.
