This summer Triphammer Arts, the Cayuga Waterfront Trail Initiative and the Friends of Stewart Park will once again host Watermusic/Dancing on the Trail at the Stewart Park section of the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. On Friday, July 12, 2019 from 5:30 – 8:30PM, the park will come alive with a spontaneous festival of music and dance, featuring new bands, new songs, and new choreography along with long-time favorite Finger Lakes performers. The dances can be seen, and the music can be heard, from the trail or from the water.

Watermusic/Dancing on the Trail celebrates the natural beauty of Tompkins County's outdoor spaces as well as the wealth and diversity of artistic talent in the Finger Lakes region. Musicians will perform along the Waterfront Trail and the borders of Cayuga Lake and Fall Creek from 5:30 to 7:30 pm with a Grand Finale performance at the Picnic (Large) Pavilion from 7:30 – 8:30PM. Our successful move to the Stewart Park setting has brought the bands closer together for ease of walking and the enjoyment of multiple performances.

The Hangar Theatre Company continues its 45th summer season with the beloved musical, Into the Woods, with matinee and evening performances from June 28 to July 13. This landmark work features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine with direction by Hangar Artistic Director Michael Barakiva.

This modern twist on classic fairy tales begins with characters you know and love, like Cinderella and her wicked step-sisters, Rapunzel and The Witch, Jack and his beleaguered mom, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, and other favorites. But what will they discover when they venture away from home and into the dangerous, wild, and often unpredictable woods? It's a soaring musical about the power of wishes—and what really happens when they come true.

In creating peace and balance amidst the conflict between Words and Numbers, Milo discovers a joy in learning that cures her bouts of boredom.

Directed by Amanda McRaven, this version of the classic story has a female-fronted cast full of "queens" instead of "kings" and a female Milo. "I wanted the kids in our audience to see a world where women are the protagonists, the rulers, the bad guys and the good guys, where they aren't rescued from towers by men, and where men and women share agency. As a storyteller, my wish is for all children to grow up knowing that adventure stories don't belong to any one gender," says McRaven, a member of the Hangar Drama League Directing Fellows.
