In addition to providing critical support to a wide range of artists, Lumberyard Contemporary Performing Arts welcomes audiences of all experience levels into the inner world of the contemporary performing arts, giving them opportunities to witness the creation, as well as the performance, of new work.
Each year in Catskill, Lumberyard will present a summer season consisting of premiere and work-in-progress performances by celebrated professional artists and companies, serving residents and attracting tourists from across New York and beyond. From October through April, the facility will be available for collaborative residencies; subsidized and commercial rentals; and community programming.
Lumberyard’s End of Summer Shindig is tomorrow and will feature performance excerpts from Urban Bush Women’s new work SCAT! featuring composer/performer Craig Harris; bluegrass music by Steve Lutke and Appalachian Uprising; American Glory BBQ; beer by Rip Van Winkle Brewery, wine, gifts, and more.
Adrienne Willis is Executive and Artistic Director of Lumberyard.
