"The Cake" Hartman Theatre, John Myers Building March 3–6, 2022The Cake by Bekah Brunstetter

Directed by Angel Hammie and Caleb Eugley

Della makes cakes, not judgment calls — those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married, and the fiancé is actually a fiancée, Della’s life gets turned upside down. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life, Della has to think for herself.

Our Town Poster

Our Town by Thornton Wilder
New Interpretation by Nilo Cruz

  • Thursday, November 11 and Friday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, November 13 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. 
  • Hartman Theatre, John Myers Building
  • General Admission $8 and SUNY Students $3.

Starting on November 11, 2021, the SUNY Plattsburgh Department of Theatre will present Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. This new and modern interpretation of the classic play features translations into Spanish by playwright Nilo Cruz and celebrates the fictional town of Grover’s Corners as a multilingual and multicultural community of today. 

Often considered one of the greatest American plays ever written, Our Town follows the lives of two families through love, marriage, and death. Narrated by a stage manager (in our case by three stage managers!), the play is performed with minimal props and sets. Our Town has three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity.” The play reminds us of our shared humanity and to be present in the moments of our lives. The character Emily asks in the play,  “Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it — every, every minute?” 

This performance of Our Town will be presented in the Hartman Theatre inside the John Myers Building and will also feature cameos by members of the Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir and Fuerza, the Black and Latinx Student Union.

Masks are required at all times when inside on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus. No drink or food is permitted within the theatre at this time. Due to health restrictions, seats for all performances are limited.

Please Note: The Box Office in the John Myers Building will only be accepting credit card payments on the days of the performance. Cash transactions are accepted at the Angell College Center desk.

Don’t miss out on a great chance to see an American theatre classic for our time. We hope to welcome you to Our Town! 


Fireman holding helmetThe Guys by Anne Nelson

  • Hartman Theatre, John Myers Building
  • $15 suggested donation for General Admission, $3 suggested donation for students

Benefiting the Clinton County First Responders 

Based on the events of September 11, 2011, “The Guys” is a timeless drama about the surprising truths people can discover in ordinary lives, and the connections we make with others and ourselves in times of tragedy. A NYFD fire captain and a writer discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, and the enduring bonds of common humanity.

Produced by The Adirondack Regional Theatre. Special appearance by the Plattsburgh Gospel Choir in the September 11 performance.
