This Saturday at the Other Opera House

This Saturday, June 24, the Ancram Opera House kicks of its 2017 season with Real People Real Stories, an evening of storytelling by six local residents. The theme for the evening is taking chances: quitting jobs, finding what you didn't know you wanted, real estate deals, a near-death fishing accident, and more.

AOH co-director Paul Ricciardi created Real People Read Stories, live local storytelling in the tradition of The Moth Radio Hour, last year, and it soon became an audience favorite. AOH now opens and closes its season with this "evening of homegrown stories." 

The storytellers this Saturday are from around the county and beyond: Lisa Morris (Gallatin), Sherry Weaver (Livingston), Darlene White (Pittsfield), Joan Galler (Ancram), Mildred Aksen (Ancramdale), and Hudson's own Ellen Thurston.

The storytelling begins at 8 p.m. The Ancram Opera House in located at 1330 County Route 7, just north of the intersection with Route 82. Parking is available on the adjacent lawn. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
