Climate action onstage with Hudson River Playback Theatre
We hear about the climate crisis all the time in the news—but what’s it like for you? For your family? Are you talking about it? Worried? Afraid? Determined? In this interactive show, audience members’ personal stories come to life on the spot, alternating with short scripted plays. Please join us for this special event and bring your stories!
THE TIME IS NOW! was originally performed as part of CLIMATE CHANGE THEATRE ACTION, a worldwide series of readings and performances presented biennially in conjunction with the United Nations COP meetings on climate. COP25 is now over, but the climate crisis continues to escalate. We’re now offering this powerful theatre experience to new audiences and we hope you’ll be part of this important conversation.
Hudson River Playback Theatre, a New Paltz-based nonprofit ensemble founded in 1990, has carried out performances on climate change for 12 years. HRPT was the 2019 recipient of the Arts Society of Kingston’s ASKar award for performing arts. They perform widely in the Mid Hudson region and beyond.
Admission $15, $10 for students and seniors
