While Broadway in New York City has announced that performances will begin in September, why wait? There are going to be multiple events/shows for you to take in before that here in Dutchess County.

At the County Players Theater in Wappingers, you will be able to check out the classic "Pride and Prejudice" on July 9, 10, 16, 17, 18, 23 and 24, 2021. The Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 8 PM and the Saturday and Sunday matinees will begin at 2 PM. The prices are much more easy on the budget than that of New York City as well. This version of Jane Austen's classic tale will cost you $20 per ticket, with discounts for seniors, children and military.

Then in September at County Players they will welcome guests again with performances of 'Prelude to a Kiss' September 10-25 and Arthur Miller's 'The Price' for select dates in November.
