Glimmer Globe Theatre announced it will return to staging live performances this summer at Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum.
Glimmer Globe founders Michael Henrici and Danielle Henrici and Fenimore/Farmers’ Performing Arts Manager Mike Tamburrino announced Saturday, April 3, that the company will stage outdoor theater this summer, following a year’s hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“If all the world’s a stage, for heaven sakes, let’s get back on it,” Danielle Henrici said.
The performances will include main-stage performances of “The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged)” at the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater at the Fenimore in the town of Otsego. The show will run from Wednesday, July 14, to Sunday, Aug. 22.
The play by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield was the first show performed by Glimmer Globe Theatre when it debuted a decade ago, the Henricis said.
“It means the world to us to return to this play as we return to the stage,” Danielle Henrici said.
“This is a show that appeals to everyone, even people who claim they don’t like Shakespeare,” she continued.
“It is also an incredible way to introduce children and teens to The Bard.”
COOPERSTOWN – Five years after he made his stage debut as Belle’s Baby in “A Christmas Carol,” Dashiell Henrici is ready to take his career to the next level.
“A few months ago, he announced he was going to be an actor,” said his mother, Danielle. “And for this show, he was told to say the word ‘God’ like you have a hot dog in your mouth, so he walked around teaching everyone.”
Dashiell plays Tiny Tim – with the single line “God bless us, every one,” in the full-cast audiobook of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” presented by the Fenimore Art Museum’s Glimmer Globe Theatre, and The Farmers’ Museum’s Templeton Players, now available to stream for free on the Fenimore Art Museum’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
COOPERSTOWN – The county Board of Elections has sent a letter to Richfield Town Board candidate Jeremy Fisher, a partner in Richfield Lanes, saying he is not a town resident, according to Democratic Commissioner Mike Henrici.
“There is nothing in election law that requires a candidate to be a resident to run for office: You only have to be a resident by the election,” said Henrici, who with the Republican commissioner, Lori Lehenbauer, sent the letter to Fisher this week advising him of his status.
Regardless, it is too late to remove Fisher’s name from the ballot before the Nov. 5 town elections, Henrici said.
