             Autumn Breezes Bring Cool Events To Schoolhouse Theater

North Salem, NY, September 8, 2019—German cultural critic and philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.” While some see autumn as an end to summer, Schoolhouse Theater sees it as the beginning of a fabulously cultural season in art, music and comedy. For three weeks in October, we are also particularly excited to present the thought-provoking play, The Amish Project.  Details are below . Tickets for all events are available at

September 20, 8 p.m.

From 11a.m-3:30 p.m., Singing With Your Heart, Body & Soul

This workshop encourages joy and freedom through song. Sloan says, “we will move our bodies, soften our hearts, open our mouths and let our voices out to play.” This class is for singers and non-singers alike.

Then join Sloan (Bright Side of A Rainy Day) and Trina Hamlin (song composer for Dawson’s Creek, Tale Lights and MTV’s Real World) for an evening of pop, rock, jazz and blues.  If the name Wainwright rings a bell, it should. Sloan’s family tree is enviable including Loudon, Rufus, Marth and Lucy!)

About The Schoolhouse Theater: Westchester County’s oldest non-profit professional Actor’s Equity theater. Since 1986, it has been a place for actors, writers and composers to develop their work. In 2015, Bram Lewis became artistic director. Since then, several shows have moved to off-Broadway after making their debut here including Stevie Holland and Gary William Friedman’s Love Linda, B.H. Barry’s The Enlightenment of Mr. Mole, and Lois Robbins’ L.O.V.E.R which is currently playing at Pershing Square Signature Center. This charming old building also houses two art galleries featuring exhibits by thriving visual artists.
