What’s Fun in Otsego County: Best Bets

Former Oneonta resident Arjun Verma is returning to the area from San Francisco for a sitar concert on Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 66 Chestnut Street, Oneonta.

Arjun Verma began learning sitar at age 5 from his father, the late Roop Verma, an internationally performing sitarist who had studied with Maestros Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar. Hailed by “The New York Times” as a “fine sitarist,” Arjun shares the jewels of his cultural heritage in a manner that is fresh, modern, and relevant, while maintaining a high standard of traditional integrity. His performance repertoire has stretched the limits of the sitar as an instrument, and his recording and composing work has adapted Indian classical music effectively for TV, opera, and documentary film.

The Catskill Community Players celebrate their 48th year with Neil Simon’s comedy “Rumors” at the Wieting Theater in Worcester April 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 1.

A cast of local favorites perform in the hilarious tale of a celebration gone wrong:

Maria Johnson and Ben Friedell are Ken and Chris Gorman, J Lentner and Diane Stammel feature as Lenny and Claire Ganz, Diana Friedell and Mark Murphy appear as Cookie and Ernie Cusack, Michael Tamburrino and Rhiannon La Cross portray the young and ambitious Glenn and Cassie Cooper. Also joining the cast are Charlie Reiman and Abbey Koutnik as officers Welch and Pudney.

RUMORS is under the direction of Lissa Sidoli, with Diana Friedell producing, stage management by Deb Bruce, Diane Stammel in charge of costumes, and a set designed by Andy O’Dell and Charlie Reiman. There will be home baked refreshments for sale during intermission to benefit the Worcester Woman’s Club.

Tickets are $20 General Admission and $15 for Seniors or Students and can be obtained in advance on line here thru Eventbrite: https://bit.ly/3K8BMym  or at the door.

The Wieting Theatre, built in 1910, was host to many vaudeville troupes touring across the U.S. by train. Here, the walls do talk — signatures of cast members from past shows from as far back as 1920 adorn the backstage walls.
