SIGNS OF HOPE!

LEAVE A MESSAGE FOR GLEN STREET!

The Wood Theater’s window space lining Glen Street is typically filled with upcoming event posters. However, all upcoming events have been cancelled, postponed, or put on hold due to the state of public health. Things are starting to reopen around us, and we would love to leave some Signs of Hope for Downtown Glens Falls!

When you make a donation of $5 (or more!) we will hang a colorful sign in our window with whatever message you want the world to see! Your own name, a shout out to a loved one, a positive quote, well wishes to/from a business or organization, fun memory of the Wood Theater, an inside joke with a friend – the possibilities are endless!

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

TO BENEFIT THE WOOD THEATER

Experience A Christmas Carol unlike any other—past, present or future. The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge comes to thrilling new life as Tony Award® winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide…) plays over 50 roles in a virtuosic, master class of a performance that must be seen to be believed. This theatrical achievement comes from the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival – Once on this Island).

Staged exclusively for this production and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theatre home for the holidays. The Hollywood Reporter declares, “It’s a towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this.” And the Los Angeles Times raves, “Mays is a rare gem and Arden is ingenious. For true theater lovers, there can be no better gift this season.”

MYSTERY IN A BOX: MANHUNT

JANUARY 12TH-23RD

You buy a ticket. You’re delivered a box. Inside the box, you find a variety of objects, along with an invitation… beckoning you to solve a mysterious puzzle. You accept the invitation, and are connected online to a detective who needs the clues in your box to start connecting the pieces… but… the pieces to what? As the plot unfolds into a night of twists and turns – along with virtual live performances that plunge you deeper into a world of noir and intrigue – you realize this is about much more than random items in a box. You begin to wonder: in this virtual game of cat and mouse… who’s chasing who? And why is one of your objects a clock that’s slowly counting down? And… perhaps most importantly of all… what happens when it hits zero?
