Stage Kiss

by Sarah Ruhl

directed by Nina Agostine Smith

December 8,9 14,15,16,17 29,30,31 January 5,6 2018

Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl's singular voice. It is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one. Please Note: The show contains strong language and adult themes. May not be suitable for children.

It takes many volunteers to run Theatreworks and we'd like to begin highlighting some of our very best and brightest! This month's volunteer spotlight - Beth Plotkin!

Beth is a native of Brooklyn, NY. At the age of fifteen ,she moved with her family to Rockaway Beach graduated from Beach Channel High in 1979, and subsequently attended Kingsboro Community College and Fashion Institute of Technology. She pursued a career in the corporate world, working for major banking institutions, then became a buyer in the garment industry and finally a merchandiser for major Department store chains.

In 2000, Beth had had enough of the big city and came to reside in New Milford, her 11 year old daughter in tow. She decided to work for the New Milford school district where for 10 years and had an enormously rewarding career working with special needs children .

Now in retirement, Beth enjoys spending her time volunteering with community-based programs. Always looking for ways to give back to her town, she was introduced to TheatreWorks by a friend. It was love at first sight! She has found new inspiration in the many ways she has participated in the theatre. Besides working as an usher and concession stand person, Beth has been a dresser for the play Souvenir, worked crew for Time Stands Still, has been stage manager for Leading Ladies and Animal Farm. She is also an active member of the TheatreWorks Board of Directors.

She has been heard to say on many occasions, “that theater means the world to me and I am so grateful to be a part of it”. Beth says that TheatreWorks New Milford has a mission to bring the arts to the people and it has done a fantastic job of it. She looks forward to many more years, working in her favorite avocation.
