Effective Friday March 13th at 5PM, the Charles R. Wood Theater will be closed until local and state governments allow us to reopen.
During this period of closure, tickets to future events will be available online or by phone Tuesday-Saturday 12PM-5PM. The box office will be closed for walk up sales. You will be contacted via phone or e-mail as a ticket holder to any affected event. Should you wish to forego receiving a refund and make a donation to the theater or any of the other affected nonprofit groups to show your support during this difficult time, please contact the box office at (518) 480-4878 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
To thank our generous donors for their continued loyal support, when you make a contribution of at least $25 using this campaign, we’ll send you a FREE 4×4 premium magnet featuring the image of Downtown Glens Falls from the view of the Wood Theater roof.
Any contributions received during this closure will ensure that our staff remain employed and the lights stay on so we are ready to safely move forward as soon as we are able. Further, your support now will ensure that we are able to maintain our low rental cost for fellow non-profits, low ticket fees for our patrons and low or no cost educational programming.
You know the drill: you pick a card, then somehow a magician finds it in a deck – oldest trick in the book. But what if that magician was thousands of miles away…and the card appeared in your home? Welcome to the next generation of magic. Before the show you’ll receive a sealed box with secret contents to be revealed during the live performance. Now imagine that same magician bringing every day objects to life, reading your mind, and mystifying you… all as you sit in your living room. It’s a magical experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. So… ready to pick a card?

FILM FEST IN A BOX: 5TH ANNUAL ADIRONDACK FILM FESTIVAL
Film festivals are more than just great movies – they’re incredible experiences. While we may not be able to bring you to the festival, that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the festival to you. In addition to more than 100 short and feature-length films to choose from, you’ll also receive everything you need to recreate the exciting atmosphere that has become synonymous with AFF. Your box comes with items like your festival lanyard, a t-shirt and killer AFF swag, 3D glasses (you may just need them), and even a velvet rope to cordon off your room from those pesky housemates who don’t meet your VIP status. We’ll provide you with some of the best new films on the planet – along with all the popcorn you’ll need to get through the weekend – and so much more!
Set sail for an unforgettable, high seas staycation on the world’s first ever Cruise in a Box!

Then, you’ll join your Live Virtual Cruise Director for a night of world-class Shipboard entertainment and variety performances as you sail across the globe – all from your own couch!

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?
It’s time for Andy and Laura’s Painting for Two – the BEST paint-by-numbers instructional show on public access WBPP! By signing up for this week’s show, you’ve received your canvas and paints in the mail, and you’ll be following along with Andy and Laura to make it a masterpiece in a night where wine and canvas meets live theatre. One small change: Laura isn’t here. She’s gone. But… Andy’s here, live… from the living room they once shared… and he’s ready to make this blank canvas into a stunning piece of art with YOU! Also, due to budget cuts, we may need him to host a few more shows throughout the evening… also the future of the station may be at stake. But… it’ll be fine, right? Yeah… yeah it’ll be… fine…
