On Friday, November 10, at 6:00 p.m., the Camphill Hudson Players, an integrated theater group, present an encore performance of their original multimedia theatrical production, Happiness in the Spotlight, at Hudson Hall. The play debuted this past spring at Hudson Hall and is returning for one night only. The performance will be filmed, to be included in a documentary exploring the impact the group has on Hudson and the surrounding world.
The show, written and directed by Jody Brookes, centers on an award ceremony and explores topics of belonging, individuality, and finding contentment in a polarizing world. At one point in the show, actor Matthew Harrington exits the theater, and pre-filmed scenes show Harrington asking Hudson citizens, including Mayor Kamal Johnson and Hudson police officers, how they find their way to happiness in their lives.
The filming of the play and subsequent editing are funded in large part by a generous grant from The Spark of Hudson.
Admission to the play is offered free of charge. To reserve tickets, go to http://www.camphillhudson.org/events.html.
Camphill Hudson's mission is to build healthy social relationships in an environment dedicated to personal and social healing and caring for the earth and to build community with people to all abilities through living, learning, working, and playing with people of all ages, races, and creeds.
