In late 2019, the Adirondack Experience, Adirondack Center for Writing, and Pendragon Theatre joined forces to create a live theatre program to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. The program would feature actors reading select letters collected by the museum for a new exhibition, bringing to live wartime words exchanged between beaus and their sweethearts, mothers and sons, and young soldiers and their high school coach. Momentum for the program grew—then suddenly all plans were stopped with the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Both the theatre and the museum faced the difficult decision to cancel their 2020 seasons, and the fate of the planned show took a different course. Join us for an evening presentation featuring a brief reading from the diary of a North Creek soldier and a discussion about how cultural organizations in the Adirondacks are adapting to the challenges of this time—the most momentous period in US history since World War II.
