You can feel it: the days are getting shorter, the cold weather is creeping in. The ambitions of after work bike rides and Saturday hikes are giving way to the desire to stay closer to home and indoors. The change in the seasons can mean an early retreat into hibernation, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Now is the time to be planning a night on the town.
We are lucky that our small town boasts a comparatively large range of restaurants and shops, and we are incredibly lucky to be home to a professional theater company as well. With the wealth of entertainment at our fingertips on screens of every size, it’s easy to feel like a trip to the theater is too much effort. But the two fall shows at Lost Nation Theater – Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” and the Sherlock Holmes story “The Hound of the Baskervilles” – offer something you can’t get from endless time spent searching for a movie on Netflix — community!
Both shows, expertly performed by a company of largely young, talented, professional actors, invite you and your fellow audience members to experience wonder, laughter, fear, and love together. The plays are produced in such a way that the imagination of each audience member is a key ingredient. Both shows are laugh-out-loud funny, with moments of real human tenderness as well.
So shake off your fall blues! Come enjoy a night out. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be transported!
